    10/10 Photographer

    When it came to my wedding, the most important thing to me was to have amazing photos to cherish with my husband for the rest of our lives. I am so glad that we chose Stephanie to capture our day. We were honestly blown away by how perfect our photos were. She somehow captured the feel of my reception perfectly. Also I cannot rave enough about her detail photos!! If you are considering choosing her, DO IT! You will not be disappointed.

    Perfect experience in every ways :)

    Booking with Stephanie and her husband, Charles, for photography and videography was the best decision we made for our wedding. This lovely couple is a dream team. They were professional, fun, creative, and easy to work with. We love how much they care about capturing every special moments and every little details at the wedding. We absolutely love our engagement & wedding photos and can not wait to see the video. We also appreciate how easy it was to communicate with Stephanie throughout the whole process. We highly recommend this perfect team to everyone. They both made our wedding special and magical ! Thank you! 🥰👍🏻

    Everything we wanted and more!

    My fiancé, Calvin, and I were so excited to get our pictures done at the beach. We absolutely love the beach and spend any free time at the beach. In fact, the beach is where I realized that I was falling for Calvin and knew he was going to be something special in my life. Anyway, we scheduled our pictures and then Mother Nature had other plans. Stephanie kept in contact all the way up to when the hurricane hit and then was very quick to reschedule our pictures, when we realized that the hurricane was going to hit the area. After the hurricane we had to switch our location for pictures because our original location wasn't a good spot after the hurricane and Stephanie recommend Fort Fisher. It was a great recommendation and the pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL. Stephanie had such a great personality and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her technique to get the look she wanted were clever and had a way to turn the photoshoot into a new memory with stories to tell. A great picture tells has a way of telling a story and Stephanie definitely did that with our engagement pictures. She got all the pictures we wanted. The pictures she took for us turned out to be EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND MORE! I definitely recommend her to anyone in the area, or not in the area that want great pictures. I mean, we drove two hours down to the beach and two hours back for our engagement photos and it was SO WORTH IT!

    Creative and Artistic!

    Stephanie did an amazing job with our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos! I could not have asked for a better experience. We had a beach wedding at Shell Island Resort and it turned out really well! Stephanie's photography style was classy and elegant but also creative and artistic! She was professional and always arrived on time and prepared to start the photo session. Her videography team did an excellent job of recording our wedding and reception without us even noticing that they were there. We can't wait to see how the ceremony video and wedding movie turn out! Thanks again for all of your hard work and the time and care that you put into capturing all of our special moments!

    Amazing experience and photos!!

    From the first phone call I had with Stephanie, I knew we had to have her capture our wedding! She was super easy to talk to and it was evident she was super passionate about what she is doing! My husband and I first did our engagement photo session with Stephanie. We arrived a little nervous and unsure of what to expect, but Stephanie blew us away! She made us feel super comfortable throughout the entire session and had amazing techniques to help us relax so she could capture some amazing shots. After our engagement session I knew the wedding photos were going to be amazing!

    Day of the wedding Stephanie and her husband were awesome!! She went above and beyond that day and even helped me as I struggled getting into my dress. She also captured every special moment from the day. I am so happy we had Stephanie there for one of the best days of our life! She not only is wonderful, but so are her photos!! We really cannot pick a favorite because there are so many we love! I highly recommend Stephanie Axtell for your wedding! Thank you so much for everything!!

I wish you both so much love and happiness :D

    Amazing Engagement Session

    Hiring Stephanie was the best decision I could have made. She is so talented, and easy to work with. She gives you direction, and the photos from our engagement photo session came out beyond my greatest expectations. I am so excited to continue working with Stephanie for my bridal portraits and our wedding!!

    Perfect Engagement Photos

    Choosing Stephanie to be our wedding photographer was the easiest decision my fiance and I have made on our wedding planning journey thus far. Stephanie is warm and funny but also professional- you can tell right away that she has a true heart to capture the love between the couples she photographs. The first time I met her was at our engagement session, and she immediately made me feel comfortable and known. And she took the best pictures of my fiance!! He hates getting his picture taken, and Stephanie set him at ease and made us laugh. Stephanie traveled to the location of our choice and spent over 2 hours with us. I feel confident that come my wedding day, I can truly be present in the moment because I trust Stephanie to capture it all. I could not recommend her enough.

    Easy to work with photographer

    Stephanie took our engagement pictures, my bridal portraits and our day of photography for our wedding. Stephanie was so easy to work with -- our engagement pictures had to be rescheduled due to the hurricane and we were able to reschedule quickly. Photography was one of the most important things to us and we are so pleased with how our pictures came out (plus the turn around time was unusually quick!!) Stephanie was always quick to respond to any questions I had and worked well with my wedding planner to help coordinate the timing of our wedding day! We are so glad we chose to work with Stephanie!

    Most amazing photographer ever

    Stephanie was amazing! She was super accommodating and our pictures turned out beautifully. She did our engagement session too and I felt like she really got to know us, which helped her create these amazing photos. I will definitely be reaching out for any future photography needs!

    Amazing photographer experience

    Excellent wedding photos. Stephanie is priced fair and does great work. She shot our engagement photos and wedding photos. Both turned out awesome! She used a second photographer (as is pretty much protocall) and captured some really cool moments. We had an extensive shot list and although it burdened her quite a bit, she was able to accomodate our shot list as well as add her own creative shots for our wedding pictures. She communicated well before the event and more importantly, on the day of our wedding. We found her very easy to talk to and communicate with, although she took charge in the few moments she needed to in order to get some solid photos. Overall she did and excellent job and we would recommend her to future couples looking for a photographer who communicates well, and takes incredible photos.

    Stephanie was an absolute DREAM to work with for our engagement session and wedding photography. Conner and I knew Stephanie from high school - she was always supportive of our love story and continually expressed her interest in photographing us whenever the time came for our special day! t's hard to even put into words how incredible her work truly is. She has an eye and unique style that is can't go unnoticed. The engagement shoot allowed Conner and I to get comfortable in front of the camera together, being that it was the first time we ever had professional pictures taken together. We had a complete BLAST - laughing and smiling the entire time - which ensured that our wedding photos would turn out just as we envisioned. Whether you have had experience with that or not, Stephanie knows how to make you look amazing and capture your true self / relationship with your partner on camera! On our wedding day, Stephanie helped us stay on schedule while capturing every point in time of our day. This made us feel at ease, ensured everything ran smoothly, was fun and the pictures truly speak for themselves. If you want an incredible professional who can help create memories for you with passion, talent, and a personal touch, look no further than Stephanie Axtell Photography. She is responsive, will travel out of state (she did this for us!), fun to work with, and has undeniable talent.

    All the best,
    Mr. & Mrs. Conner Meek

    My husband and I hired Stephanie for our wedding, and we could not have made a better decision! We met with many photographers before her, but her professionalism, sweet personality, and beautiful photos won us over! She shot our engagement session, my boudoir shoot, and our wedding. She made us feel so comfortable, made us laugh, and truly captured our personalities and our love. She got our photos back to us so quickly for our engagement and my boudoir shoot. She also gave us a preview of about 50 wedding photos the day after our wedding. I would absolutely recommend Stephanie to any engaged couples!

    Stephanie and Charles did an amazing job with our wedding video and we could not have been more pleased with it!

    We received our 5+ minute wedding video plus a 10+ minute video of the ceremony in well under 2 months which was a couple weeks under what we got promised on and we have been watching it multiple times a day ever since! They captured all of the best parts of the day and even included a couple sentimental moments that meant the world to my wife and I but would probably go unnoticed to most. Even the music fit us perfect! In fact, Stephanie sent us the video and we had one minor request to change and she did it that night!
    As for the wedding day, we barely even noticed they were there to do videography for us. They were both so personable and friendly that they felt like part of the family. They let us be ourselves and made themselves fit perfectly into the days timeline. We were never once stressed about anything and they were both extremely polite. After seeing the few minutes of short videos, they will make you wish you had them do the whole night!
    If you’re looking for a fun, flexible, and extremely professional videographer, than Stephanie is the one for you. Thanks you both again so much!

    Stephanie was wonderful to work with! She was amazing at capturing my wedding. I chose her for her natural light photography and she did not disappoint. Stephanie captured photos that I never thought I would get from my wedding based off of the location but she used the spaces to her advantage. She knew of a hidden garden downtown that allowed me to get great outside photos.

    Stephanie worked my wedding by herself since it was a smaller wedding and she stayed on time, captured photos throughout the ceremony that I did not think one person alone would be able to capture all in a short time period. She kept on hand some of my inspiration photos I gave her and used her knowledge to get a wide range of different photos. Stephanie was patient, funny and used great tactics to get us smiling and laughing for good candid shots. She also had my sneak peek to me within 48 hours!

    An engagement session was included in our wedding package and this showcased Stephanie’s amazing editing skills. The day was hot and super humid which led us to being a little sweaty. Stephanie was able to edit the sweat droplets off of our faces and our clothes, for a great outcome.

    I would definitely recommend Stephanie and I am beyond impressed with her professionalism and service!

    Stephanie was an absolute dream to work with before and on our wedding day. She was very flexible with customizing her services to fit our budget as well as our wants. We scheduled a meeting prior to our wedding day to discuss what we wanted from our pictures and she was very engaging as well as helpful in talking through what her process would be. During the formal photos she was ingenious in eliciting reactions from even the most photo-averse groomsmen, resulting in the most beautiful photos of all the people we love! And to top it off, she got us a preview of our photos THE DAY AFTER our wedding. Stephanie is incredibly professional and a genuinely lovely person, I would recommend her to anyone without hesitation!

    Stephanie was fantastic. Unfortunately due to some error on my part we weren't able actually work together but she still took time out of her day to talk with me and give me some other recommendations and gave me her card with the offer of more assistance if I needed it. I was so sad this didn't work out! Hopefully we will be able to work with her in the future. :)

    Stephanie was absolutely amazing! I literally can not say enough great things about her! I had several photo shoots with her (engagement, boudoir, and bridal). I received my photos back in a timely manner and they were breathtaking! My husband is not photogenic and can become quite awkward infront of the camera but she even managed to make him feel at ease and capture great photos of him. Of all the photographers I contacted (which was a lot) Stephanie was the most professional and offered the best value hands down! She takes direction well. She took some of my ideas and ran with them and made them look even better than I imagined. I also hired her to do the videography at my wedding and I haven't gotten it back yet but I know it won't be anything less than amazing! I would highly recommend her and I know I will be using her again in the future for other photo sessions!

    We could not have asked for a better photographer! Stephanie's professionalism and dedication showed in every picture! She is wonderful at making everything go as smoothly on her part as possible and is amazing at capturing those perfect moments! If you're looking for someone personable and dedicated to capturing photos you will cherish for years to come this is your girl!
