Stephanie was an absolute DREAM to work with for our engagement session and wedding photography. Conner and I knew Stephanie from high school - she was always supportive of our love story and continually expressed her interest in photographing us whenever the time came for our special day! t's hard to even put into words how incredible her work truly is. She has an eye and unique style that is can't go unnoticed. The engagement shoot allowed Conner and I to get comfortable in front of the camera together, being that it was the first time we ever had professional pictures taken together. We had a complete BLAST - laughing and smiling the entire time - which ensured that our wedding photos would turn out just as we envisioned. Whether you have had experience with that or not, Stephanie knows how to make you look amazing and capture your true self / relationship with your partner on camera! On our wedding day, Stephanie helped us stay on schedule while capturing every point in time of our day. This made us feel at ease, ensured everything ran smoothly, was fun and the pictures truly speak for themselves. If you want an incredible professional who can help create memories for you with passion, talent, and a personal touch, look no further than Stephanie Axtell Photography. She is responsive, will travel out of state (she did this for us!), fun to work with, and has undeniable talent.Sent on 08/26/2018

Everything we wanted and more!
My fiancé, Calvin, and I were so excited to get our pictures done at the beach. We absolutely love the beach and spend any free time at the beach. In fact, the beach is where I realized that I was falling for Calvin and knew he was going to be something special in my life. Anyway, we scheduled our pictures and then Mother Nature had other plans. Stephanie kept in contact all the way up to when the hurricane hit and then was very quick to reschedule our pictures, when we realized that the hurricane was going to hit the area. After the hurricane we had to switch our location for pictures because our original location wasn't a good spot after the hurricane and Stephanie recommend Fort Fisher. It was a great recommendation and the pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL. Stephanie had such a great personality and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her technique to get the look she wanted were clever and had a way to turn the photoshoot into a new memory with stories to tell. A great picture tells has a way of telling a story and Stephanie definitely did that with our engagement pictures. She got all the pictures we wanted. The pictures she took for us turned out to be EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND MORE! I definitely recommend her to anyone in the area, or not in the area that want great pictures. I mean, we drove two hours down to the beach and two hours back for our engagement photos and it was SO WORTH IT!Sent on 11/02/2018
