San Francisco East Bay Wedding Photographer // Stephanie Haller » San Francisco East Bay Wedding Photographer

We’ve moved!

Incorporating wedding photography and design, AHAVA STUDIOS is the husband and wife team of Stephanie Haller and Ryan Mollenhauer. After much discussion, the decision was made to launch a new brand and ideals, celebrating the one constant element in our lives – love. Incorporating Stephanie’s love for photography and graphic design, Ahava represents so much of what we have to offer: an approach to natural and real life. Moments. Thoughts. Documenting your day in the most open nature possible. Hebrew for love – it’s you in the purest sense. Your wedding is about you – not the camera.

Join us as we move forward:


All further updating will be at Ahava, so be sure to update your bookmarks, grab a glass of wine, and share your thoughts.

Welcome home!

Kristina & Dennis // Married at Full Moon Resort in the Catskills

Ryan and I spent the entire weekend with Kristina, Dennis and their friends and family – a weekend we won’t forget. So much to take in and absorb and I can not wait to get home to California and look through their weekend in earnest.

We miss you already. :)

Jenn Roberts - Love these! You are amazing, Steph :D

Colleen & Mike // Rehearsal Dinner

I rarely have the chance to attend rehearsal dinners – 9/10 times our travel schedule doesn’t allow for it. I was so so happy to be able to share in Colleen and Mike’s rehearsal dinner back in June. The baseball fan in me couldn’t turn down a ticket to a Mariners and SF Giants game at Safeco ;)

Attending the rehearsal dinner allows us to introduce ourselves to family and friends before the big day, which always results in more relaxed images. Such a good crowd – I KNEW we were going to have a blast the next day.


Rebecca & Sean // Married at the Seattle Aquarium

While we get caught up and recover from the craziness of this week (Jersey City, Manhattan, Bear Mountain, Seattle) – I couldn’t wait to post a few frames from Rebecca and Sean’s gorgeous and super laid back wedding at the Seattle Aquarium.

Worked with the super-awesome Lauren from Manette Gracie events – we have another 4 weddings together this year – I anticipate being besties with her by October. :)

Congratulations you two! Enjoy Hawaii!
