Stephanie Forness

See proof that Stephanie got the best inheritance ever

Behind every successful campaign and project for our clients is an organized yet passionate Account Coordinator like Stephanie Forness, who takes care of various clients in our Fargo office.

Besides those responsibilities, Stephanie is also behind the camera or in front of a computer screen, editing photos. Her passion? Photography.

Stephanie's husband, also a photographer, nabbed this shot of her for us.

“My grandpa loved photography,” she explains. “I inherited his 35mm Minolta camera when he passed away.”

Below is Stephanie with her grandpa’s camera, close by, waiting for perfect light and loving every moment–just as he intended it to be!

“Having my grandpa’s camera sparked my interest in photography, and I became more serious about it when I was offered a job as a corporate photographer. I met my husband at that job, who fueled the fire even more. He’s so passionate and it’s fun to collaborate. I love shooting with him. We both have new professional jobs now, but photography is a constant part of our lives,” she says.

Stephanie and Jon were married last fall in Kauai, Hawaii. Looks like a picture-perfect pair to us!
