This year will be 15 years for Ashley Stephenson as owner of Story Photographers in Raleigh. Following in her parent’s footsteps, Ashley graduated from Campbell in 2006 with a BA in Religion and Christian Ministries. After one year at Duke Divinity School, she paused her studies when she found that her side job of photographing families, engagements and weddings was growing into a full time, booming business – and never looked back! So much has happened since then to change and shape the direction of Ashley’s story, but currently her Story Photographers team and vision is growing, changing and thriving, while she is also co-pastoring a church plant.
For over 38 years, Stephen has helped clients pursue their dreams by helping them create and implement wealth creation and wealth preservation strategies. His primary focus now is on working with high net worth clients and business owners to help them create diversified, tax efficient portfolios and strategies to protect their assets. In addition, Stephen helps his clients implement generational wealth transfer strategies for leaving a lasting legacy to their loved ones.
Stephen earned his BBA degree in Trust and Wealth Management from Campbell University. He also earned his CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNERTM designation. Prior to creating Seacoast Wealth Management, Stephen worked in various capacities, including as a Partner and Managing Director with other wealth management firms, and as the Chief Investment Officer of a privately owned trust company. He worked in the trust and wealth management groups of large banks prior to that, primarily with BB&T where he worked with high net worth clients as a Senior Vice President.
