    Fun and Talented!

    Stephanie was beyond fun to work with! There is nothing more my husband despises than having his photo taken, but from their first meeting at the engagement session, Stephanie got him ignoring the camera and captured some incredible shots that showcases our personalities. We chose to use her second shooter and videography team as well, which did not disappoint--even surprising us with a drone!

    The BEST photographer in the industry!

    Stephanie is the most professional, dedicated and talented photographer I have ever known and worked with. Stephanie is very organized, does whatever you need to make your photos come to life and goes with the flow. For example, at my wedding yesterday, there was a LOT of wind and Stephanie managed to find great shots by angling the photos to go with the wind patterns to make my wife's veil go seamlessly with the weather and capture great moments! Stephanie is consistently focused on making sure the photos are exactly what you imagined and then taking that vision and making it even better. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer and knew that once we booked her there wouldn't be anything (photographer wise) I would need to worry about. Stephanie went above and beyond my expectations and truly made this experience enjoyable and one to remember! I recommend Stephanie to EVERY couple looking for a photographer for your special day!

    Wonderful experience, beginning to end

    Stephanie was so flexible, fun and easy to work with. We booked her just a few weeks before our micro wedding and she stepped in like a pro. We started the ceremony late, and with her help we got all the photos I wanted in before she had to leave to her next event. Highly recommend!

    Greatest photographer!!

    Stephanie is absolutely wonderful!! From the start she was extremely helpful with the planning process. She offered vendor options when we were stuck and was there to lend an ear when we had to postpone our reception! We were so grateful she was able to capture both our small ceremony in May and our big reception in July! We already have all the digital photos from May which are gorgeous! And the sneak peek from July which follow suit. She is fun and professional and not intrusive at all. We didn't even know she was there during the ceremony! Such a nice change of pace from some photographers I've seen at weddings. We got to know her even more having her twice and I can't say enough good things about her! You won't be disappointed booking with Stephanie for your wedding or really anything! We will definitely utilize her skills in the future! Thank you for capturing both of our days so beautifully!

    Fantastic Photographer

    Stephanie is such a wonderful photographer! Not only did she capture our wedding perfectly, but she thought of things I didn't. She even helped us find the best way to capture group pictures in the midst of COVID-19 precautions!

    Seamless process; beautiful photos; enjoyable experience

    My wife and I got married during the early days of COVID when everything was particularly chaotic, and Stephanie was a brilliant photographer who we view as a miraculous find.

    Photos/Results: Stephanie got great photos of our wedding. She took a LOT of photos, and when she sent them to us she also selected some of her favorites; we've looked through all of them and generally our favorites are in that subset as well. To me, that is an indicator of her knack for understanding and capturing relationships and special moments, in addition to having an artistic eye.

    Working with Stephanie: Working with Stephanie was great. It was easy to plan and coordinate with her, even during a lot of uncertainty with COVID. She was very flexible and worked with us to build a plan for our wedding day, It was easy to communicate clearly with her, and she 'got' our desired look and feel.

    Day-of Process: We had a very small ceremony, and Stephanie was an enjoyable addition to our wedding; she got lovely photos throughout, and was able to adapt, give direction very pleasantly, get great candids, take great staged photos, and generally interact really well with the wedding party.

    TL;DR, Stephanie was great, we enjoyed working with her, and we are very happy with our photos.

    Stephanie is Amazing!!!!

    Stephanie was hands down one of the best vendor decisions we made for our big day!! From our first meeting to the engagement shoot to our wedding day, she was such a fun and energetic addition to our wedding team! My husband and I are both not the most comfortable people in front of a camera, and Stephanie鈥檚 charm and friendly personality were able to help us relax and have fun with the entire process, which gave us some beautiful photos. She was able to offer us countless suggestions for locations for both the engagement photos and the wedding day photos, and we had complete trust in her that she could take the lead on layouts and poses and she did not disappoint!! My family is all so excited to see our wedding photos, as we know the quality of the images that Stephanie can produce is wonderful! I am looking forward to using Stephanie in the future to capture photos of my family!

    She鈥檚 a rockstar! An invaluable assest to your wedding team

    We love her so much! She made the day so much more special. She even turned half wedding coordinator our wedding day when things didn't go quite right, encouraging breaks for the special couple and refocusing on us. She is invaluable. You won鈥檛 regret your decision to work with her.. she鈥檚 down to earth and professional! Our engagement session was awesome. She was flexible and didn鈥檛 hate us for bringing our dog scooter ( he鈥檚 a little rowdy).. all pictures have been amazing thus far!

    Fun, sweet and responsible!

    Stephanie is so sweet! From the first time we met, I knew she would be the one :) she鈥檚 very easy going, works with what you envision and adds great ideas to your special day. She is not only an amazing photographer, she will also listen to you on a personal level, helps and recommends vendors and in general is such an amazing human being. My family, bridesmaids and friends loved her and her professionalism.

    Perfect! Stephanie is absolutely amazing! Couldn鈥檛 be happier

    I鈥檝e had the pleasure of watching Stephanie鈥檚 career grow over the past 10 plus years and finally had the opportunity to hire her for our wedding and couldn鈥檛 be more pleased with her work! The way she captures the moment is exactly what every bride desires on their wedding day! She brings a positive energy and passion to capture the love surrounding your day! She鈥檚 the only photographer I want for all my photos.

    Absolutely amazing

    Our first vendor (other than venue) that we wanted to tackle during our planning was our photographer because that is what creates the memories. We spoke to several on the phone prior to meeting in person, but we only interviewed one photographer in person, and that was Stephanie. IMMEDIATELY after our 3 hour meeting over coffee (something her and my wife share a passion for) we cancelled all other meetings we had without hesitation and hired Stephanie. And we did not regret it.

    Between our engagement shoot and our wedding day her preparation, professionalism and work ethic were unmatched. I'm a guy that DREADS pictures especially posed ones and she made the experience fun and gave us exactly what we desired. I literally could type pages on our experience but simply..

    IF she is available the day of your wedding or any other event you want memories saved for ever Hire HER!.

    Stunning photographs and incredibly personable

    Stephanie was wonderful to work with. She is professional, punctual, and extremely easy to get along with. She was able to make my husband smile/laugh for photos and was genuinely fun to have around. Not only is she talented (hence the gorgeous photographs), she is also someone you can easily spend time with (which is extremely important considering your photographer is with you the entire day). Would absolutely recommend her for weddings/engagements and I look forward to using her again in the future for family portraits!
