Captured Authenticity vs Created Artifice
Before seeing a single photo from my wedding, I was already prepared to give Stephanie a 5-star rating.Sent on 11/16/2018
Stephanie was incredibly responsive and on top of communication throughout the entire planning process. I never felt like I had to chase her down or that I wasn't her top priority. She is very easy to get along with, open to lots of ideas, and always ready with fun suggestions of her own.
I wanted to work with Stephanie because I saw from her portfolio that she has the ability to capture intimate moments that tell the grander story all in a single frame. With her photojournalism background and approach, she is a master at capturing authentic moments, rather than creating posed, unnatural ones.
Stephanie's ability to artfully capture moments as they are was key for my wife and me because the wedding was actually a surprise we sprung on our guests the day of. We needed someone who would be able to navigate the uncharted territory of such a unique event and still artfully document it all.
And Stephanie certainly delivered.
If you want the standard photos that look just like everyone else's, hire the best-rated wedding photographer in your budget. If you want exceptional stills that truly reflect the ineffable essence that is specific to you and your day, hire Stephanie Secrest.

Stephanie is simply AMAZING!
My husband and I were so lucky to have Stephanie capture the moments of our wedding. When we were searching for photographers, it is so rare to find someone with 5-stars-- and there is definitely reasons why Stephanie has it! She is incredibly skilled and passionate photographer. It was hard for me to come up with ideas, but after spending an hour with her, she was able to see the vision I wanted and she had a lot of ideas on how to make that happen. We highly recommend Stephanie for any photos you may need and hope to work with her again in the future.Sent on 04/01/2019

Professional, skilled, down to earth, fun, best wedding/engagement/event photographer!
Stephanie is such a delightful person to work with and an incredibly skilled, creative, & passionate photographer. We are ecstatic with how our wedding and engagement photos turned out. They truly tell the story. We don't even regret not having video from our wedding because the photos Stephanie and Connie captured tell it all. We also had so much fun during our engagement session--Stephanie had us laughing and relaxed immediately. She was open to our ideas and also had tons of creative ideas of her own. She is personable, down to earth, professional, and she was able to clearly articulate what angles and poses we should attempt to get the right shot. She has an artistic eye for creative and fun shots as well as more serious portraits and sentimental moments. She actually also photographed my grandmother's birthday party about a month before our wedding, and those photos turned out awesome, as well. Stephanie is all around a wonderful person and talented photographer! My husband and I highly recommend Stephanie for your engagement photos, wedding photos, and other special events.Sent on 03/09/2019
Stephanie Secrest is a fantastic photographer who will capture the most memorable aspects of your wedding day. She's creative in using the venue, personable in working with bridal party, families and guests and has impeccable timing which makes the wedding day shine. I recommend her highly.
I love working with Stephanie! The photographs are fabulous and she just knows how to capture those special moments! Stephanie also makes it easy to have your photo taken..and putting you at ease on your wedding day is important! You need to feel comfortable with your photographer as you will be spending a whole day with them! You will not be disappointed when hiring professionals that create the spirit of your event and Stephanie is one of them.
Wonderful to work with. Total pros, whose care and talent produces beautiful photos and memories. They have a gentle, but professional air which made taking the pictures a joy, so the Bridal party was able to celebrate throughout the picture taking. Because you can't be everywhere, they show you parts of your wedding you didn't see. A great gift!
