Short version: Stephen is AMAZING. Hire him. You will not regret it. Our #1 hope for our wedding pictures is that they didn’t feel stiff and truly captured the joy of the day – Stephen pulled that off effortlessly.
Long version: We met Stephen and decided to work with him before we even knew when/where we were getting married. We liked him and his work so much that we actually included his availability as one of our requirements when considering venues. He was more than patient with us as we made the venue decision, and ended up traveling from Charleston to Greenville, SC for our wedding.
On the day of our wedding, Stephen and his second shooter showed up early to check in and take a look around the area. He scouted out some great spots for pictures, particularly our first look. He transitioned from one photo site to another, and from one group of people to another so smoothly. He took charge but wasn’t pushy, and he did a great job of keeping everyone engaged in the process. Multiple people (parents, bridal party, coworkers and friends) have told me that our wedding pictures are the best that they’ve ever seen, that they perfectly captured the mood of the day, and that Stephen himself was a blast to work with.
Stephen went above and beyond in every way. He kept us from falling behind on our timeline, helped rebuild our ceremony arch when it fell over (TWICE!) and did it all with a smile on his face. You could not ask for a better photographer for your wedding, and you definitely won’t find anyone better than Stephen.

What a guy!
Stephen was easy to work with and is able to adapt to anything unexpected on your wedding day. He sees little moments that he wants to capture that you would never have thought of. We loved working with him!

We decided to book with Stephen after reviewing his portfolio and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos! Aside from being a master of his craft, he is flexible and easy to work with. We didn’t want to spend my entire wedding day taking pictures and by hiring Stephen we didn’t have to! He somehow manages to get the best pictures and you don’t even know he’s there! Book him and you won’t be disappointed!

Who has more charming details, fresh ideas and style up his sleeve than photographer Stephen Blackmon? His sparkling personality and amazingly steady hand were just the ticket for several of my 2009-2010 brides!
