Amazing Photographer and Incredible Photos!
Stephani was phenomenal to work with! Throughout the entire planning process, Stephani was very patient and flexible with our plans. On the day of our wedding, Stefani was dependable, on time, and she helped make sure that everything ran smoothly. She even scoped out a garden, and found a few amazing places for us to take pictures at, before we got there! During the photos, she made us feel so comfortable and captured our true emotions and reactions. The angles and lighting were incredible, and we are so happy with every picture in our album. Stephani's turn around was also amazing- we had our pictures before we returned from our honeymoon! We highly recommend her to all of our friends and family.Sent on 09/16/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Sabrina, you and Taylor were a dream couple to work with! I'm excited to shoot your reception next year. :) Looking forward to working with you two again!

The Best Photographer We Could Ask For
We chose Stephani because we loved how natural her pictures looked! Each couple seemed so genuine and enthusiastic and the editing was easily our favorite! We nearly cried when we got our first batch of engagement pictures back because they were so amazing! We pored over them constantly and shared a ton to social media as soon as we could. The result was simply beautiful! There is NO ONE in the world that would be easier to work with than Stephani; she gave us plenty of fun prompts to help us feel at ease and comfortable. We got along really well and had a strong, friendly vibe with one another! Her work is unique in that each PHOTO is completely unique - another reason we wanted to work with her! The composition of each photo is so detailed and expertly crafted that makes every one have its own personality. Each edit is PERFECT. We would, without hesitation, recommend Stephani Elizabeth Photography to all of our friends and family! She has been an absolute delight to work with, is easy to contact, and efficient in timing - needless to say the photos are beyond magical!Sent on 02/12/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Sean, you and Julie were such a treat to work with and I'm so very happy you both are enjoying your photos so much. I'm looking forward to documenting your wedding day and working with you two again very soon!

The Best Photographer and AMAZING Photos
Stephani was absolutely PERFECT! My fiancé and I were drawn to her pictures because of how natural and effortless all of the couples looked. She really captured the couple's genuine chemistry that they had with one another. We could not wait to book with her! As soon as we booked with her, she sent an email with a ton of different engagement session tips and tricks (what kind of clothing looks best, what kind of makeup looks best, etc.). Stephani was also very supportive and flexible when it came to planning our engagement shoot. The night before our engagement session she messaged us to make sure we were okay with the weather (since it was going to be cloudy instead of sunny). She also arrived hours early to our engagement session location to scout out different spots where we could take our pictures. She was also extremely open and supportive of any ideas that my fiancé or I had for our session. During the engagement session she made sure that my fiancé and I had a lot of fun and laughs with one another. She honestly made me forget we were even having our picture taken! She made sure that none of our pictures looked awkward or posed in any way. Stephani also provided a "sneak peek" of our pictures 2 days after we took them! I assumed this would be less than 5 pictures, but she gave us at least 20! She had all 180 of our pictures back to us in less than 2 weeks! We are absolutely obsessed with our engagement pictures and cannot get enough of them! Everyone who sees them comments on how beautiful and natural they are (the editing, the lighting, etc.). Everyone also says how they think they describe us perfectly as a couple! Each picture is so unique and just as gorgeous as the last. I know we will love these pictures for years and years to come. I cannot say enough amazing things about Stephani! She was absolutely perfect to work with and we cannot wait for our wedding pictures. I cannot imagine having anyone else capturing such an important time in our lives.Sent on 12/10/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Angela, you and Jonathan were so much fun and easy to work with. I enjoyed exploring Keeneland with you guys and I so appreciate your willingness to go along with my crazy ideas! I'm looking forward to making pictures of your wedding day coming up!
Katy S. · Getting married on 06/20/2021
When looking for a photographer we found a lot of stiff poses and photos that looked overly edited, so we were overjoyed when we found Steph! We just got our engagement photos back, and I can’t wait for her to do our wedding! She immediately put us at ease, and we had so much fun at our engagement shoot! Nearly every comment on our pictures we’re friends and family saying how natural and happy we looked- no stiff poses here! Or they commented on the GORGEOUS way Steph captured the sunlight in all our photos! I can’t say enough good things, I highly recommend Steph Elizabeth Photos!Sent on 06/17/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Katy, I'm so happy to hear that you and Alex enjoyed your photos! You guys were so much fun to work with and I'm looking forward to documenting your day!
Mackenzie G. · Married on 02/11/2021
I absolutely LOVE our wedding photos. My husband is usually awkward around a camera but he looks stunning in all his photos. Me and my girls look amazing, and I love just looking through all of them. Stephanie's photos exceeded our expectations. She did a wonderful job working with everyone and letting us know what was needed. Photos from every angle and for every moment. Nothing was missed!Sent on 12/22/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Mackenzie, I truly enjoyed working with you and Nick in creating the most magical winter wedding at one of my favorite venues, and I'm so glad you both love the photos! I hope to work with both of you again in the near future. :)
Chelsea R. · Married on 11/01/2020
Excellent! Exceeded my expectations by far!
We chose Stef Elizabeth Photo because she came highly recommended from a friend. I am so glad we went with her because our experience was nothing short of amazing! I was totally in awe of our engagement photos because of how well she captured each of our personalities and fun-loving relationship. I honestly can’t pick out a single favorite photo because they’re all so great! The lighting, location, and day was absolutely perfect and really made for stunning photos! Stef was full of ideas, easy to work with, very professional and great at what she does! I cannot wait for her to capture our wedding day! I would recommend her to anyone again and again!Sent on 11/08/2020
Natalie J. · Married on 10/17/2020
Best wedding photographer I could ask for
Stef is so great at what she does and finding the best lighting! It was so hard for me to pick my favorite pictures after our wedding day because there were so many that I loved. She also did a boudoir shoot for me and made me feel so comfortable. She is amazing at what she does! Can’t recommend her enough!Sent on 02/04/2021
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Thank you Natalie! I truly enjoyed working with you and your family, and I hope we can make more photos again in the future! Wishing you guys the best for 2021. :)
Tristan M. · Married on 10/10/2020
All Around Fantastic
Stephani was fantastic! We really could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our weeding! We chose Stef Elizabeth Photo after reviewing her past weddings and other event photos and speaking with her extensively. She was always very professional when interacting and accommodating to our specific asks. After we received our photos back from her (which were done really fast), we were happier with our decision to go with Stef Elizabeth Photo for our special day. The lighting and emotion she is able to capture in the photos is phenomenal. We would highly recommend her and make sure you get the keepsake wooden engraved usb drive of your photos!Sent on 12/02/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Thank you so much Tristan! I enjoyed working with you and Graham and that beautiful sunset light we had on your wedding day. I'm so glad you enjoyed the photos and I hope to work with you both again in the future!
Mariah H. · Married on 09/19/2020
Loved working with Stephani!
We found Stephani on a whim on The Knot and we are glad we did! We did both our engagement and wedding photos with her and are absolutely thrilled with how they came out. Each photo is crisp and gorgeous with lighting and angles, which is one of the reasons I chose her. Lots of photography trends right now are dark/moody images even for weddings, but I wanted to ensure my photos were timeless, clear, and something to treasure and she made sure of that. She was so helpful in making the photo process more relaxing by providing us with prompts to help us give more "real" smiles and reactions with each other. Viewing both our engagement photos and wedding photos was so excited and we had many people tell us how great they were. Stephani was amazing, especially considering our wedding plans had to change a bit due to COVID and our ceremony ended up being outside. She was able to get all the shots I requested and I honestly don't know how she did it! It seemed like she wasn't even there, but was also everywhere with all the shots she got! I've raved about Stephani to many people and would highly recommend her to work with! She also delivered a beautiful USB with a custom-engraved wooden box to hold it with all our images. Thanks for amazing photos Stephani!Sent on 12/27/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Mariah, you and Nick were so much fun to work with and I truly enjoyed shooting your beautiful wedding in Indiana. I hope you both enjoy your photos for years to come and I hope to work with you again as a family soon. :)
Heather · Married on 09/13/2020
Stephani is the BEST!
I could not be any happier with how our weddings (two!) and engagement photos turned out! Stephani did an amazing job and was so wonderful to work with! My husband and I are shy in front of the camera but she helped us get real emotion out during the photo sessions. We loved her style of photography with the lighting and candid shots she captured. She was always professional but fun to work with and was accommodating with our two weddings due to COVID. Us and our families loved the photos so much and would definitely recommend Stephani to everyone!Sent on 10/17/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Heather, I had so much fun working with you and Tanner over the course of your engagement and two weddings! I'm so glad you will cherish your photos for years to come as the start of your new family. I hope to work with you both in the future!
Lyd C. · Married on 05/09/2020
An Absolute Joy to Work With
Stephani did an wonderful job with our wedding photos. We received a sneak peak photo gallery before we even got back from our honeymoon! Our wedding was drastically changed from the original plans we had told her (due to COVID) and she completely rolled with it for everything we asked. My husband and I can be pretty awkward in photos, but Stephani made us both feel so comfortable and capture the true essence of our relationship, both with each other and with our family and friends. All of our photos look so natural and you can see the actual laughter and fun we all had. We chose Stephani and her work because she was so upfront and honest with what she was going to deliver us, and she still exceed our expectations. The gallery she provided was so easy to navigate, the personalized USB was absolutely adorable, and she provided us with very useful tips on savings and storing our photos safely. I have already recommended her work to coworkers and friends, and I could not recommend her enough.Sent on 11/08/2020
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Lydia, thank you so much for the thoughtful review! You and Geoff were so much fun to work with and I'm so glad you love your photos. I hope you enjoy them for years to come and I'm honored to have documented the start of your new family!
Kara · Married on 03/21/2020
Amazing and Great To Work With!
We booked Stephani Elizabeth Photography for our wedding and engagement photos and I’m so glad we did. I really love candid style photos and when I saw Stephani’s gallery I knew right away that she’d be the perfect fit for our wedding! Her photos are so colorful and have such life to them! I really wanted photos that looked natural and not overly posed, so I was very excited to have her as my photographer.Sent on 08/22/2019
When we first started looking for photographers, my fiancé and I had a lot of questions with how the process works and Stephani was very good with answering any and all questions. She is personable and punctual when it came to our initial meeting and for our engagement session. Always very communicate, which I really appreciated.
When it came to doing the engagement photos, Stephani made the session very fun and easy! I’m not good with getting my photo taken, so I was nervous at first, but her style of taking photos quickly made my nerves go away and the results were fantastic! We both look natural and happy. I would definitely recommend Stephani to anyone who wants a great photographer and she absolutely delivers. I’m really looking forward to her taking my photos for my wedding!
Erin · Married on 02/29/2020
The BEST Photographer for US!
I spent so much time stalking photographers and galleries online, and thought I "knew" who I wanted to use for my upcoming wedding. After reaching out, and looking at some photos from my space, I was less than thrilled with their work.Sent on 08/06/2019
My friend found Stephani Elizabeth Photography, and after our first coffee date, I knew I had found my photographer. She sent me galleries of my venue from past weddings that she has shot, and I fell even more in love with her work.
Fast forward a few months, and we did our engagement photos. I sent her a curve ball with, "I want to shoot at my barn with my horse and dog. AND I want to shoot at a festival." After 24 hours of our shoot, I had a sneak peek gallery of about 25 photos, and less than 2 weeks I had the rest of my gallery of over 100 perfect photos.
I can't be more excited to have Stephani shoot our wedding in February.
Any brides looking for an amazing local photographer, should definitely look into Stephani Elizabeth Photography.
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Thank you so much Erin! I enjoyed our unique shoot with you and Brian and I can't wait to shoot your winter wedding. I know it will be spectacular!
Brittany B. · Married on 12/31/2019
Wonderful photos and photographer!
Working with Stef was a joy. She was prompt and responsive in communicating (we were planning long distance and this helped so much), and a knowledgeable guide. On the day of the wedding she was flexible, and easy to work with. She has a presence about her that puts you at ease and allows her to capture real emotion. Our photos were ready quickly and prints were easy to obtain. We will always treasure the beautiful photos she was able to capture!Sent on 01/02/2021
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Brittany, you and Naveed were truly one of the most relaxed and pleasant couple's I've ever worked with, and I'm so glad you're still enjoying your wedding photos! I hope to work with you both again in the future!

Great experience and great photos
I decided to book Stephani after seeing her beautiful, vibrant photos online, and I am so glad I did! I instantly fell in love with our engagement photos. She was able to capture us as a couple. Stephani was great to work with. She made us feel totally comfortable during the engagement session. Her photos are truly authentic.Sent on 12/05/2018

Stephani was an absolute dream to work with! She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement shoot!

Elizabeth O. · Married on 09/07/2019
Awesome experience with Stephani!
I was so overwhelmed when looking for a photographer because there are so many choices out there. Stephani's photos really stood out among all the photographers I was looking at because they had a real genuine quality to them. They weren't stiff and posed, but seemed to capture the couples' authentic personalities. And that was exactly the result we got when we saw the photos from our engagement shoot with Stephani! Her photos really captured us being ourselves. And she did a beautiful job of using the colorful fall foliage to create interesting backgrounds to the photos while still keeping us the main focus of each shot. We absolutely love them! Not to mention, it was super cold the day we did the photos, but you wouldn't have any idea we were freezing when looking at the pictures! She kept us engaged with prompts that kept me distracted from the cold and kept both of us distracted from the camera so we could interact like we normally do. Plus, Stephani has been great to work with logistically. She is always so quick to respond, is very professional, and has been so helpful throughout the process. I would absolutely recommend her!Sent on 12/09/2018
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Elizabeth, thank you so much! I enjoyed our session and I'm glad I was able to distract you and Matt from the cold as well! I'm very glad you both enjoyed the photos and I'm looking forward to documenting your wedding day :)
Annie R. · Married on 08/17/2019
I cannot say enough good things about Stephani! She was super easy to contact, always open to answering our questions and was really patient with mine and my fiancé’s crazy schedules. Working with her in person was even better and she made the session so much fun! She came up with fun prompts and questions to get a reaction out of us so she could capture a real genuine smile/laugh/hug/etc. She is amazing at positioning you in natural light settings so the light hits you just perfectly. Working with her made my cheeks hurt because I was smiling and laughing so much. She is extremely creative and when we got our engagement session photos back I almost cried because she did such a beautiful job at capturing our relationship. I will cherish her pictures for years! Would recommend her to everyone!!Sent on 08/13/2019

Best Photographer Ever!!
Stephani was absolutely incredible, our pictures came out perfect and were ready to view before we even returned from our honeymoon. Before the wedding,she offered us a very detailed brochure and contract, so we knew exactly what to expect and what plan would work best for our wedding. Despite how camera shy my husband and I are, she was able to capture amazing poses and angles without anything looking forced or awkward. She shipped us the complete USB of our photos within a month of getting married in the cutest personalized wooden box. Perhaps most surprising is how low her fees are given the excellent quality of her work; i couldn't believe she wasnt charging double given the high quality of each picture. We opted to only have one photographer as our wedding was incredibly small, and she was still able to get every angle and photo we wanted working alone- even during the ceremony! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for an incredible photographer without breaking the budget.Sent on 09/23/2019
Samantha · Married on 05/26/2019
I spent a lot of time searching for wedding photographers and it was something that I didn't want to settle on, I'm so happy I went with Stephani. I just got back my engagement photos from Stephani and my fiancé and I absolutely love them! They are so natural and the photoshoot felt natural. Stephani was great to work with and super flexible and laid back which eased both of our nerves. My fiancé and I have very busy schedules, on top of working opposite shifts and she was great working with our busy schedules. She was even willing to drive up to Cincinnati for a 6am photoshoot! Her pricing is so reasonable for both the wedding package and her travel fees! I would highly recommend her to anyone. I can't wait to see what she is able to capture at our wedding!Sent on 07/29/2018
Stef Elizabeth Photo's reply:Samantha, it was wonderful to meet you and Joel even at 6 a.m., haha! You and Joel were so easy to work with and I'm happy you both enjoyed your engagement photos. I'm so looking forward to creating a beautiful set of wedding photos for you next year!
Shela · Married on 12/08/2018
Stephani is absolutely wonderful to work with! We initially booked her because we loved her bright and beautiful aesthetic, and reasonably priced packages. She had great knowledge about locations to shoot. She also knew how to make us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and had great prompts to draw out our natural reactions for great photos. Our engagement photos turned out sweet and natural - we'll keep looking on them to cherish over the years.Sent on 09/19/2018

Amazing photographer! Highly recommended!
My wife and I were very fortunate to find Stephani online when shopping for a wedding photographer. My wife and I lived in Atlanta, GA at the time when we located Stephani. We met with her in Louisville and loved her personality, kindness, explanations, softness, and confidence. She made it easy for us to explain what we hoped for. After securing Stephani it was difficult for my wife and I to get back to Louisville for the engagement pics. However, she worked around our schedule and met us on our way into town to take the photos at a park. The real craziness then happened when my wife and I moved to Barcelona, Spain about 2 months before our wedding. Life became extremely complicated. We had so many other important events going on, and we were not able to dedicate the proper amount of time to finalizing the plans for the wedding. I know the distance and lack of planning made it difficult for Stephani, but she came through despite the difficulties. She was always so kind and worked around all of our not-so-perfectly-planned events of the day. Stephani never got frustrated (at least not that I could tell). She was so helpful and professional and really helped to make sure we got all of the photos that we had hoped to achieve. My wife and I returned to Barcelona two days after our wedding, and I feel bad that I never truly had the opportunity to thank her in person for all that she did. I absolutely love my wedding photos. I had the time of my life that night and Stephani's photos captured everything so beautifully. Thank you so much Stephani. I'm sorry that I did not get to tell you that in person. I am happy to recommend your wonderful skills to anyone that wants my advice. You really are an expert at your craft, and I feel very fortunate that you photographed our wedding.Sent on 04/09/2019

Wonderful Wedding Photographer
We chose to work with Stephani for our wedding photographs because we loved her use of light and candid compositions. We wanted our wedding photos to feel natural and reflect who we really are as a couple. We live in California, but had our wedding in Lexington, KY. We were a little nervous hiring someone whom we had never met in person, however Stephani was really responsive and through detailed email correspondence made us feel at ease. She was flexible with our travel schedules, very professional and prompt each time we met with her. It had been some time since my husband or I had been photographed professionally, therefore we were really grateful that she offered an engagement session. Stephani was great at adapting to new locations on the fly and was creative when coaching us through the poses. She was quick at taking care of the formal group shots so that we didn't spend too much time posing for photos on our wedding day. Lastly, she captured some wonderful candid moments without being too obtrusive in the process. We are very pleased with how the photos from our engagement session and day of turned out. My husband and I were so impressed with her work that we hired her to do photos for my parent's 30th wedding anniversary. We would highly recommend working with Stephani to any bride and groom or family.Sent on 04/14/2019
