Candace is the better half of Stephan Maloman in many ways and your first contact at Maloman Studios. Her outgoing personality and organizational skills make her a great asset as she is also our in house “wedding planner.”
She will coordinate the photography aspect for every step of the wedding, making sure that your photographers know when and where to be to capture all of the key moments. She strives to maximize the time you have with your photographers.
Additionally, Candace has been personally trained by Stephan and photographs alongside him at most weddings where he is the lead photographer. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking and baking (as she is a classically trained chef) and blogging about food on her food blog.
Stephan’s photography is infused with a fashionable, editorial eye for beauty that makes people, places, things and most importantly you look sexy, hip and oh-so-chic. Frequently featured in leading publications and sought after by discerning couples world-wide, Stephan unobtrusively captures un-staged moments of real emotion and significance by deeply connecting with the couples he works with.
Raised in Germany, Stephan came to the USA in 1993 to study photography. After graduating with “best portfolio” from the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale in 1996, Stephan pursued a career in freelance photography covering assignments from Miami Herald to editorials for Ocean Drive Magazine and many modeling agencies in South Beach. Weddings were never on his agenda until 2002 when he was asked by a friend to shoot her wedding. He was given full creative freedom to explore the editorial and photojornalistic styles he fell in love with while freelancing.
Today, Stephan and his team of photographers have covered a combined 750+ weddings in the entire continent of the US and beyond, including Italy, England, Germany, Brazil, Portugal, Mexico, India, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Bahamas, Cayman Islands, Curacao and many other Caribbean Islands. His collections also include an impressive list of professional athletes such as 4X NFL Pro Bowler Jake Long, 3X NBA All-Star Richard “Rip” Hamilton, Major League Baseball player Michael Morse and professional golfer Morgan Pressel, just to name a few.

His work has been published in such publications as Inside Weddings, The Wall Street Journal, Grace Ormonde, InStyle Weddings, Style Me Pretty, Junebug Weddings, The Knot, Maharani Weddings and Brides Magazine.
Currently, Stephan lives with his wife Candace & son Jasper in sunny south Florida and frequently shoots at exclusive & exotic destinations around the world.
“I always try to find the un-staged moments and emotions in a photograph. Good photography is as simple as possible.”
