About Me

Hello! My name is Stevi Waggoner and I am the photographer behind Honey & Salt. I am a hopeless romantic and I am extremely passionate about capturing the beauty of this world. I studied art at both Ball State University and Herron School of Art + Design and have been shooting weddings since 2008. Outside of photography I get really excited about gardening, food & wine, and design of all kinds.

My Photography Philosophy

My love of photography started when I was about 13 years old, when my parents got me a 35mm film camera for Christmas. I remember the joy of getting back my first roll of developed film like it was yesterday. From that moment I was hooked. Over time and with practice, I began to see that most beautiful moments in life are also the most fleeting. As I grew up and my passion for photography grew and grew, I realized that it's not just about being there to capture a scene, but it's about bringing an artful touch to each photograph to really enhance it. I love photographing in nature and prefer natural light to artificial.

What does Honey & Salt Mean?

I named this business after a beautiful poem about love by Carl Sandburg titled Honey & Salt. It's about how love is grand and romantic, but also about paying rent and grocery shopping. A favorite passage of mine is:

Is the key to love in passion, knowledge, affection?
All three--along with moonlight, roses, groceries,
givings and forgivings, gettings and forgettings,
keepsakes and room rent,
pearls of memory along with ham and eggs.

I love this poem because I believe all those seemingly insignificant moments are what make sharing your life with someone the greatest adventure.
