Hello and welcome to Snowdrop Studios.

We created Snowdrop Studios as a tribute to the beauty of art and love!

and a gripping story. We love evoking a sense of mood—particularly dreamy,
romantic, vintage, whimsical, and ethereal moods.
Our business is committed to changing the world.

I was a recent high school grad when I had my first photo shoot and I fell in love
with the experience of capturing the world on film. The setting sun, a bride’s smile,
the laughter of a child, the tree-lined park—the familiar was transformed into something
timeless through the lens of my camera. It was exhilarating; I felt like I could catch time
itself. From that moment, I knew photography would be my passion. So I went on to study
photojournalism at UNT, where I met a host of talented professors and students who taught
me a wealth of knowledge about my craft. I also learned to view photography as documentary,
to see that ultimately life is a great big story seen from many different perspectives. My favorite
thing about art is the diversity and freedom of expression. I love that there is no right or wrong
way to do it—it’s all up to the individual’s heart and perception. I try to take that mindset into
each session with my clients, to work with them to create what they envision. I am honored to
be a part of the most substantial moments in people’s lives; being a photographer lets me connect
to the world and people more than I ever thought possible.
Ever since I was a child I have been moved by art.
As I got older I grew a deep passion for helping others and making people happy.
I took many career paths but always focused on one thing: serving people.
When I discovered photography I was so grateful to finally be able to combine my
two passions: art and people. My favorite thing about art is how moving
and inspiring it is. It’s accessible to everyone and it brings joy and
creativity into the world.
A little more about us:
Stephen was born in Fort Worth, Texas on November 24, 1989 into a loving family.
Coming from a Mexican, German, and Irish background he learned to appreciate
culture and loved immersing himself in adventures, loving people, and enjoying the
little things in life.
Ioana was born twelve days later in Transylvania, Romania at the start of
the revolutionary war in December of 1989. Her loving parents brought her
along with her two older brothers to Dallas, Texas three years later to avoid
communism and enjoy the freedom of the West. She became a U.S. citizen at
the age of ten.
Ioana and Stephen met in Fort Worth on the school bus when they were ten years old.
At the age of thirteen they became best friends, and by fourteen they were smitten for each other.
On November 6, 2010, after six and a half years of love and friendship, they committed their lives
to each other and became husband and wife. They now live in a cozy little house in their
hometown of Fort Worth, with an adorable Maltese, named Ziggy. They are in love with all
things art, philanthropy, and entrepreneurship and enjoy traveling the world, being with loved
ones, and discovering the joy in everyday life.
