    The Axtells were SO fantastic. From keeping all of our bridal party (22 of them) in line and organized to hyping us up when photographing us. They were the whole package. Not to mention the final photos were everything I could if dreamed of.

    You need The Axtells in your life!

    My husband and I heard about The Axtells from a friend! In the beginning, me and my husband were nervous because we had never had professional pictures taken. From the moment we met Stephanie, she made us feel very comfortable! She was very flexible traveling to Richmond, VA from Wilmington, NC for our engagement photos and then traveling to Baltimore, MD for our wedding. Stephanie and Charles make a great team and are incredibly fun to work with. When we got our engagement and wedding pictures back, we were in awe of how beautiful they were. Everyone that has seen our wedding pictures have commented on what a great job Stephanie and Charles did! We now look back at our wedding pictures and feel like we are re-living our magical day over and over again. I would recommend them to anyone who needs professional pictures taken!

    LOOK NO FURTHER - the Axtell鈥檚 are amazing!

    I cannot say enough wonderful things about the Axtell鈥檚! Stephanie and her team took our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos and videos. They are extremely pleasant to work with and the outcome is simply GORGEOUS!

    On our wedding day, Stephanie went above and beyond to make sure we got every dream picture we wanted. Not to mention they drove hours to come spend the day with us. My husband and I are a bit camera shy, but Stephanie helped us feel very comfortable and we look so natural in our photos. I鈥檇 hire them over and over again!
