We had the extraordinary pleasure of working with Liz Stewart on our engagement shoot and wedding in 2016. Liz immediately stood out early in our search as someone who was highly professional, confident and exceedingly responsive to all inquiries and questions. Per her suggestion, we met for a consultation to see if we were a good fit and to get to know each other's personality and working style. Liz is an excellent listener and she really takes her time to understand her clients' expectations and vision, so that she can better anticipate the needs on the big day. She is very organized and calm, she knows when to step back, follow the lead and when to step in. After the ceremony, my husband and I stopped by the Lincoln Memorial to take a few quick pictures of just the two of us. Liz did an amazing job at keeping the tourists at bay and directing the flow around us, keeping us focused and moving through the shots quickly. When we got to our cocktail hour and reception, she weaved through the crowd and most of the time we didn't even know she was there. She truly captured everyone's mood and the joy of the moment. After the wedding, Liz provided regular updates on her progress with the photos and remained available and approachable. We referred Liz to many of our friends. One of our wedding guests was very impressed with Liz and hired her to shoot a promotion ceremony. Liz is a very lovely person, she is sweet, genuine, upbeat and confident, and someone who takes great pride in her work. She enjoys meeting new people and cherishes the opportunity to share their most treasured life moments. We couldn't be happier with the service and product we received, and we truly enjoyed working with Liz. We plan on sharing/capturing many more moments with Liz in the future.Sent on 12/16/2016

My Favorite Vendor!
I don't know where to begin with Liz. By far my favorite vendor for so many reasons. We were so impressed with her professionalism and ability to get things done- she was far more competent and helpful than even my day-of coordinator. The difference I found compared to all the other vendors is that Liz genuinely cares about you and your wedding. You can't get that from many vendors. She made sure everyone was on schedule and thought of every detail beyond what was asked/required of her. She spent hours on the phone with me answering my silly questions and gave me good ideas for favors, helped me with my entire timeline- with Liz I felt like I got a photographer, a planner, and a day-of-coordinator all in one. I had a photo station with an ipad for selfies for guests, and I was told from a family member that she saw it was dying during the night so she personally grabbed a charger to make sure it was all taken care of. She is the best of the best and I would recommend her a million times over if I could! Our pictures came out PERFECT, she did a beautiful job capturing the emotions, they were light and airy, natural and we look so happy. She is such a calming presence- there was one point after the cocktail hour where we had a few minutes to chill and me, my husband, and Liz just sat around eating hor douvres, taking it all in. She's a really cool chick who you want to have on your team because she will make you feel beautiful, calm, and will take care of business. It was an incredible night and we feel so lucky to have found Liz.Sent on 09/08/2019

Liz Stewart Photography Review
Liz has been amazing! From our first meeting to our wedding day she has been wonderful to work with and made us feel so comfortable. Our engagement pictures at the monuments are exactly what I dreamed of, every vision I had, she made come true. On our wedding day Liz and her assistant photographer were there for every moment and extremely helpful and patient. They kept our day on schedule and captured all our special moments. I highly recommend booking her ASAP! :)Sent on 10/20/2018

Best Experience Imaginable!
Look no further for your wedding photographer! If you want a knowledgeable, talented, organized, and thoughtful photographer, you should absolutely choose Liz Stewart. One of the most important priorities for my husband and I was to have beautiful wedding photographs that we would cherish for years to come, so selecting the perfect wedding photographer was crucial to us. We interviewed multiple photographers and after meeting Liz immediately knew that she was the right choice. Right off the bat, Liz struck the perfect balance between asking what we desired from our wedding photographs and telling us her strengths and what she could accomplish for us. She was great at listening to our needs and letting us know how she could get us to our goals, which is something I did not get from any other photographer we spoke with. When we did our engagement shoot with Liz, we experienced first-hand how comfortable she makes people feel. Not only was the engagement shoot a fun experience and good practice for our wedding day, the photos were stunning and completely blew us away! Liz was present and communicative throughout our entire wedding planning process and we were so surprised with how much additional work she did to make our wedding day go smoothly. She helped us craft our shot list and our day-of-timeline (which she conveniently uploaded to her smart watch for the big day!), something that was daunting to us as we had a long day at multiple locations. Liz went above and beyond by scoping out photograph locations near our ceremony venue a few days before our wedding to ensure the lighting would be just right for outdoor pictures. On our wedding day, Liz (and her great second shooter Megan) took care of everything. Liz’s professionalism and welcoming personality put everyone at ease, which made our photos so much more natural. It also helped to ease potentially stressful situations, like organizing many family members together for family formals! We had a wonderful, personalized experience with Liz and got the most gorgeous photographs from our wedding day. They were more than we ever could have imagined and even showed us moments throughout the day that we hadn’t even caught ourselves. We would hire Liz again in a heartbeat and would highly recommend her to those searching for an amazing photographer!!Sent on 01/10/2019

5-star Wedding Photographer!
We can't say enough great things about Liz! We are so happy we chose her to be our wedding photographer. From our initial interview with her all the way through her timely delivery of our wedding photos, she was always very professional, responsive, and enjoyable to work with. She knew where to position herself to get the best angles for our photos, as well as how to organize everyone to get through our posed photos efficiently - and our wedding photos came out beautifully! Liz truly captured what was important to us and the little details we don't want to forget. We have received numerous comments from friends and family on how great both our wedding and engagement photos came out. Liz did an incredible job and we could not recommend her more!Sent on 01/14/2019

DC Summer Wedding - Perfect Photography
I hired Liz for my DC wedding in August 2018. Liz is extremely responsive, professional, personable, and produces the highest quality photography. I had no idea how much planning goes into the photography portion of the wedding (timeline, shot list, backup weather plans, transportation timing, etc.) and I am so lucky to have had Liz help guide me through this process – she was always a phone call away whenever I needed to run something by her. Liz first did our engagement shoot –Liz was extremely accommodating and rescheduled multiple times to try and catch the DC cherry blossoms at their peak. I am so happy we did the engagement shoot with her first – this allowed us to get to know one another and get used to posing. I’d say it was most important for my now husband who isn’t one to want to take lots of photos – he loved Liz and I felt like he could have kept going with the pictures all day. Now on to the wedding day photos – I’m overwhelmed with which photos to choose for my wedding album because I love them all; she also provides every photo in both color and B&W. Liz made everyone feel comfortable – my family, friends, etc. during the formal shoots outside in front of the Capitol. Whenever I’d start to worry about timeline, Liz eased my nerves and told me that was not my concern and we are on track. Having Liz by my side all day ended up being more beneficial/comforting than my day of coordinator – she even helped us figure out how to bustle my dress when we were struggling. Liz was on a mission to make sure we got all of the photos I requested in my shot list and yet Liz & her assistant photographer were hardly noticeable during the ceremony and reception (which is the way it should be!). I was worried about the reception pictures since it was outside at night with dim lighting but the pictures came out clear and bright. Liz provides first look engagement and wedding photos within a few weeks after the shoot and then full photos a few weeks later – she was never late on any date she told me she would have the photos by. Her online album to view the photos is great and makes it easy to share with others and download the photos in different resolutions. If you are looking for a photographer that takes pride in their work, has a sense of humor, takes the time to get to know you and customize the experience to what is most important to you, and of course – produces stunning high quality photography at a reasonable price– then Liz is your girl.Sent on 10/28/2018

Liz Stewart Creates Magic
We love Liz Stewart Photography and would hire her again in a minute.Sent on 09/04/2019
Liz Stewart creates magic! She brings joy, energy and authenticity to her work that brings out the best in the bride, groom, wedding party and guests.
Our photos are so beautiful, and they reflect the time and thoughtfulness Liz invested getting to know the bride and groom before the wedding itself. Liz spent time with our daughter and son in law before they married to get to know their style and their dreams for the perfect wedding. She visited our various venues to check out lighting and other conditions. She shot a breath-taking sequence of engagement photos at the Washington Canoe Club that completely captured the happy couple, their smiles, their love and their devotion. Despite the cold wet weather, the engagement pictures are perfect. She managed to capture just the right balance of the happy couple, the spectacular scenery, and the colorful and funky vibe of the boat house and canoes.
Likewise, the wedding photos are stunning and encapsulate every happy memory. We had a complicated agenda- preparations at a home in Georgetown, formal pictures in the Bishop’s Garden at Washington National Cathedral, the wedding itself at Georgetown Presbyterian Church, then on to Decatur House for the reception. Liz was cheerful and flexible throughout, as was her partner, and thanks to Liz’s skilled planning and suggested scheduling, it all went off like clockwork. Our minister even commented on how professional Liz was, and she has recommended Liz to other brides!
Liz does a great job of asking beforehand what photos to capture, and true to her word, she got every shot requested, and then some! The formal pictures will be family keepsakes for years. And the spontaneous shots will always make us smile and remember the warmth and love of that big day. Her follow up was reliable and true to her commitment. Selecting photos was tough because there were so many great ones, but her recommendations made it easier. The final picture book was elegant, evocative and an absolutely perfect keepsake of a perfect day.
On a personal note, Liz is delightful to work with. She is smart, responsive, organized, on time, thoughtful, experienced, and kind. She understands and appreciates the importance of these special moments, and what they cost, and she will give her all to make the photography experience positive. Liz Stewart Photography will capture the beauty, energy and love of your event so that you will remember every wonderful detail for the rest of your life!

Liz came highly recommended by a friend and was everything we could have asked for and more in a photographer. You spend a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day—Liz took the time to understand what was most important to us and captured spectacular portraits from our nuptial mass. At each and every step of the process, she was incredibly sweet. thoughtful, responsible, flexible, and professional. She made us feel comfortable learning how to pose, handling all the guests and family members with grace, and helping make our wedding day organized, calm, and a more enjoyable experience for us. Plus we couldn’t be happier with the beautiful photographs!Sent on 07/24/2018

Liz Stewart from Liz Stewart Photography is absolutely amazing!! She captured our Washington, DC winter wedding in January 2018. We were over the moon when we saw our wedding pictures! The photos are truly stunning and we will cherish them for the rest of our lives.Sent on 09/30/2018
From the moment we met Liz, I knew we were in good hands, but she completed surpassed my expectations the day of the wedding and when she showed us the photos! Liz was extremely organized, experienced, efficient, responsive, professional, dependable, easy going and affordable! She is passionate about her work, which was evident when she went to our venue a few weeks before our wedding to become familiar with the location and to test out different cameras/lighting options that would be optimal for the different rooms.
Liz was such a valuable and essential part of our wedding day. She made the whole day execute flawlessly. Liz kept us on schedule, led the other photographers and videographers, directed the entire bridal party, and captured all of the pictures I would have forgotten about.
The biggest advantage of hiring Liz was the final product. Our wedding photos are simply stunning. She did such an amazing job editing the photos and was so quick to provide the completed photos to us. She offered such a large variety of high quality photos that are truly breathtaking. We love our photos, we love our album, and we love Liz!

I cannot say enough positive things about Liz and her work! Once we started looking for wedding vendors, I was most concerned about having to pick a wedding photographer. It's a big decision and there seem to be endless options! I did a number of phone calls with potential photographers and Liz stood out to me immediately. She was outgoing, genuine and asked lots of questions about my fiance and I. I appreciated that because I could tell that her attention to detail and our style together as a couple would reflect in her work. In the months and weeks leading up to the wedding, Liz was incredibly responsive and was quick to reassure us if we were concerned about a pose, a photo, a logistical question or anything wedding-related! On the day of the wedding, she was fabulous. My family was so impressed with her professionalism, how efficient she was when shooting our family formals (trust me, she was FAST) and how effortlessly she moved from shot to shot without interfering in conversations or personal moments. We wanted our wedding to feel very personal and intimate, and Liz was able to capture that while making everyone around her feel comfortable and respected. I would recommend Liz and her work to anyone, and I know we will cherish and appreciate our photos for years to come.Sent on 03/15/2018

Liz is one of my favorite people I've ever worked with. She is kind, direct, professional, and exactly the type of person you want taking your photos. My husband was so anti engagement photos, but after working with Liz he honestly didn't mind, and the main reason was just because he liked her, and she totally understood him. She has a great eye for composition and light, probably due to her art school training. She is prompt to respond and, perhaps most importantly, really reasonably priced. I whole hardheartedly recommend her!Sent on 01/08/2018
Jenna · Married on 10/27/2017
Liz was so great to work with! She was always very responsive to all my questions and emails. She also had great ideas on where certain pictures should take place and what order would work best. The day of timeline was planned out with lots of room to get everywhere but still get every picture I wanted. Liz always made sure we were getting the best shot, even if that meant her getting on the ground as to not have a giant truck in the back of the picture. She is just such a nice person and made everyone in my large bridal party and family feel so comfortable. She was also great with our little nieces and nephews!Sent on 03/08/2018
Heather · Married on 10/21/2017
We loved working with Liz (and Megan)! Although we were planning our Virginia wedding from Ohio, Liz made the process very easy. We were able to meet with her over Skype for her to learn more about us and our idea for the wedding. She was able to create a package that worked for us, including shooting our rehearsal dinner the night before our wedding. Over the next several months Liz kept me on track by asking for my "shot list", locations that we wanted to go to on our way, and just to check in. She was prompt in responding to messages. When we finally met with her the night before the wedding she was extremely personable and really wanted us to focus on having a good time and spending time with our guests, but was still able to capture all the special moments. We absolutely loved the quality and number of photos we received. We enjoy going back through our photos and reliving the day.Sent on 09/02/2018

We have really enjoyed working with Liz and would hire her again in a heartbeat. She was the first and only photographer we interviewed for our wedding. Once we met her, we knew she would be great, and her portfolio speaks for itself. Liz is a wonderful combination of fun and calming when you are working with her, and at the same time is extremely professional. Having your picture taken is not natural - and can be downright awkward (unless you're a celebrity), but Liz helped us to relax and breathe, and helped to create moments that seemed natural to us. During our engagement photoshoot she didn't hesitate to allow us to include our dogs in the mix. On the wedding day itself we had fun taking photos with her and watching her "geek out" because of the perfect lighting at sunset. You can tell she loves what she does. Thank you, Liz, for everything. Hopefully our paths will cross again soon!Sent on 10/19/2017

Liz was absolutely amazing. From the first day we met her, we knew she was our photographer. She was very professional, very sweet, her pictures were beautiful, and my parents also felt the same way! During our engagement session, she was really friendly and helped us since we had never had professional pictures taken before. She was communicative, telling us how to look and trying to help us act naturally. The pictures turned out gorgeous. We kept in touch throughout our engagement year and close to the big day she kept in touch and was responsive and super helpful. She is so organized, which is something I loved. Liz showed up on the day of the wedding early and with her partner who was also good. She directed us very well and was efficient and patient while dealing with our large and loud family! She was very fast to get some pictures back to us and they are perfect. I would highly recommend her and would hire her again.Sent on 10/15/2017

Selecting Liz to be our wedding photographer is one of the best choices we made. From our first consultation until the day she photographed our wedding, we knew we were in good hands. Liz spent time getting to know us as a couple and worked hard to understand what we were looking for. She was professional, always timely, and answered all our questions. After we selected her as our photographer, we didn't have to worry about this important aspect of our wedding because she took care of all the details. On our wedding day she was organized and respectful, while also ensuring we got all the pictures that we wanted. Her talents really showed in the final photographs.

Liz did an amazing job at our wedding and was great to work with! She met with us beforehand to discuss what we were looking for in both our engagement and wedding photos, and was very friendly and easy to work with. This was our first professional photo shoot so she helped suggest ideas and made us feel comfortable throughout the process for both our engagement and wedding photos. At the wedding she did a great job of capturing not only the ceremony, guests and family photos, but getting photos of all the details and minor items that went in to our wedding as well. Through-out the process she was very responsive and a lot of fun to work with. The photos also turned out amazing!!! We would highly recommend Liz and would definitely work with her again. Thank you Liz!Sent on 12/03/2017

Liz was our favorite vendor of all those we used for our wedding. She is a great photographer with a positive attitude, and she takes the time to gain a real understanding for what her clients want. As someone who often feels awkward posing, Liz got me and my groom moving and laughing so the whole experience felt natural. Liz was flexible and easy to work with. When our first choice location for formal photos was unavailable, she talked with the National Park Service to find a beautiful alternative close to our venue. Even after getting caught in the rain at the end of our pre-ceremony photo session, she arrived at the venue with a smile. Not to mention, of course, that her photos are amazing.Sent on 10/09/2017

We had a wonderful experience working with Liz as our wedding photographer and highly recommend her for anyone’s special event. Liz initially captured our attention from the beautiful photos displayed on her website. It was clear to us that she has a keen eye for composition and is a very skilled photographer. From the moment we sat down with Liz and began talking about plans for our upcoming wedding, we felt she was the perfect match for our wedding and we booked her immediately. We chose Liz because of the high quality of the work on her website, and her eagerness to work with us on our unconventional, very small wedding.Sent on 11/19/2017
Liz was a pleasure to work with before, during, and after our event. Since we were planning such an intimate ceremony, we had not given a lot of thought to the details of what we wanted from our wedding photos. All we knew was that we wanted pictures. Leading up to the wedding, Liz helped us flesh out the “shot list” and the schedule of the photos so we knew what was going to happen when. The day of the wedding, she and her second shooter captured so many fantastic moments of our intimate ceremony. They did this so quietly we had even forgotten they were there! After the ceremony, Liz guided us through shooting some excellent scenes and poses around the venue of just the two of us. Following our wedding, Liz provided our photos in an easily accessible online gallery. She also was highly responsive to answer any questions we had about printing and framing the images. Liz was a joy to work with and we are extremely grateful for her professionalism and her attention throughout our wedding experience. The stunning photos we now have hanging on our walls will be treasured for the rest of our lives.
Ella · Married on 06/10/2017
Liz was such an amazing find during our wedding process! I loved her portfolio and she made me feel totally at east when we met in person to discuss the wedding. She is the perfect mix of bubbly and professional. I noticed a lot of the weddings on her blog were much more formal than what we were going for, but she totally got our "vibe' and embraced the style we were looking for. We had several near "literal" meltdowns on my wedding day (the AC was broken in June!), but Liz stayed calm and upbeat and helped us troubleshoot to find the right spots for our pictures. At the end of the day, our photos turned out beautifully and we LOVE them! If you are looking for a reasonably priced stellar photographer to capture your special day, Liz is your girl!Sent on 09/21/2017

Liz was a wonderful photographer, very good at putting my husband and me at ease, and incredibly responsive. Without a doubt, working with Liz was the smoothest part of planning this wedding (when the transportation I hired to take me to the church didn't show up, for instance, my bridesmaids and I rode with Liz in her car).Sent on 08/30/2017
You absolutely get your money's worth with Liz and I couldn't be happier with our beautiful wedding photos. She was always cheerful and energetic, but approachable. My family raved about how she was able to handle our larger family group photos, working with everyone from grandparents to toddlers. And she does a great job encouraging you and the bridal party from behind the camera.
You will not regret hiring Liz.

I cannot say enough glowing things about Liz Stewart. If you're on the fence, just do yourself a favor and hire this amazing, friendly, impeccable artist.Sent on 07/14/2017
When we first met with Liz, she struck us immediately with her professionalism. She was very organized and offered responses before we even had the chance to ask. She asked great questions. We were delighted to have found a photographer we fell into such an easy groove with. Her packages and rates were very reasonable so we hired her. During our engagement photos, she was a confident and creative director. We felt very at ease with her. Our photos were just gorgeous and we couldn't wait for her to photograph our wedding. In the lead-up, we felt like we were whack-a-mole-ing problems with every last wedding detail, but in our pre-wedding meeting with Liz to go over the details, my husband and I both said "Well Liz is perfect obviously, so we don't have to worry about her." We meant it! On wedding day, she was a wonderfully calming presence among the crazy. She captured great shots, expertly herded the non-compliant cats of wedding guests and added to the celebratory happy atmostphere all day. We were thrilled with her performance, and when we got the photos, well I'm practically crying as I type this out because they're all so beautiful I still can't believe it. We've been hearing nothing but compliments on the amazing job the photographers did. I can't even pick my favorites because there are so many. Hire Liz Stewart. She's the best.

We were impressed with Liz's knowledge and experience. Liz was so friendly and helpful throughout the event (engagement and wedding photos), and seemed to be everywhere at all times! We all were impressed with the shots she suggested, the shots she knew to take when we didn't ask, and her ability to capture so many perfect moments. With over hundreds of pictures taken within her time with us, we just know we had great time with her and our wedding memories last forever. Thank you!!
