We used Stephanie for our Save the Date portraits. I was nervous at first, because I assumed it would be awkward posing in cheesy, lovey positions, but Stephanie made both of us feel totally natural and at ease and we had a blast all day. The quality of the photos were top notch and we loved them so much, we've decided to make our guestbook a photobook so we can showcase them to our guests. Stephanie is definitely passionate about her photography.
I'm also having her do my bridals, boudoir and our wedding. I absolutely can't wait to see how everything turns out.

Stephanie was absolutely amazing, I cannot say enough good things about her. She was so fast to respond back to any messages I had, which were a lot! She made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the entire process. We had a 7 week engagement and I got every picture I wanted thanks to her and she met the challenge and produced the most beautiful pictures for our families. Pictures are the only thing that lasts from weddings and Stephanie did a beautiful job at capturing all the important moments, including the last pictures to be taken of my husband's grandmother who just recently passed away. We will always have those pictures thanks to her. I am beyond grateful and amazed at the wonderful work she did and the time and effort she put into making sure every detail was perfect. I would highly highly recommend Stephanie for any type of photography session. She is the only photographer I have any interest in working with from now on for any session. Stephanie is extremely pleasant to work with, talented and highly skilled at what she does. I could not be more happy with how all of our pictures turned out! :)

Stephanie Susie is an excellent wedding photographer! She is extremely responsive, easy to communicate with and happy to answer any question you may have. She is very professional and has a personality that makes you feel comfortable with her instantly. Most importantly, she is a very talented photographer. She has an eye for picking the best locations and the best poses where the subjects look relaxed and look like themselves. When your wedding is over you will have your pictures to look back on for the rest of your life, so selecting a photographer who can capture your story is so very important. Stephanie can do that and give you something you will cherish forever. I am glad she was my photographer, I look forward to her capturing important moments in my life and I highly recommend her to any bride.

Stephanie is such a wonderful person and a brilliant photographer. Our engagement session was a really fun experience (even my fiance didn't mind it!). Stephanie is so creative while also willing to listen to any ideas that we had. I would highly recommend her! It is so important to have great pictures and a friendly person that you can be comfortable with and for us, we couldn't have wished for anyone better. Thank you so much Stephanie!!

Stephanie is awesome!!!! Stephanie took my engagement and wedding pictures and I am very pleased with her work. Not only is her photography top notch, but her personality is so fun. I am not a fan of getting my picture taken (neither is my husband) but Stephanie made us feel very comfortable. She made us laugh, encouraged us, and made us look great in the pictures! Stephanie is very flexible and accommodating to work with. Not only did she take pictures for me, she also designed my "save the date" cards to send to family and friends. Stephanie's talents are endless and I highly recommend her to all future clients!!

Kristen · Married on 05/25/2013
Stephanie was everything that I wanted in a photographer. She took the time beforehand to make sure everything was planned and everything that I wanted was addressed. Then when it came to the big day, it all went seamlessly. She was friendly and timely. All of my wedding party loved her and most importantly MY PICTURES WERE AMAZING!!! Afterwards I got my pictures in a timely manner and it was very easy how she had ordering set up. I would not change a thing about working with her!!

Lauren · Married on 02/16/2013
We could not have asked for a better photographer!!! Stephanie was extremely easy to work with and put everyone at ease. I have recommended her over and over and will continue to use her as our family grows to help capture our memories as wonderfully as she did our engagement and wedding!! Stephanie is great at what she does and is very friendly and fun to be around. Even my family that hate having their pictures made enjoyed their time with her. And all of my friends and guests cannot believe how well she captured the beauty of the day. To say that we are pleased with her work would be an understatement!

Could not have been more pleased! We worked with Stephanie on our engagement photos and on our wedding day. We were worried our engagement session would be awkward, but Stephanie made it fun, feel natural, and we loved the pictures and guest book. On our wedding day, Stephanie had everything organized, we met with her before the big day to go over details and after that she had a hour by hour timeline to follow, which took a lot of stress off of me and the wedding party. Stephanie was with us from 7 am to 11 pm on our wedding day and I could not be more thankful, she captured in-the-moment pictures that I will have forever. Shortly after the wedding, she went through all the pictures with us and helped create our album, which is absolutely beautiful. Pictures were an important element to us and Stephanie was more than we expected. If you want an experienced professional, who is fun to work with, listens to what you want, and creates gorgeous photos.. Stephanie is your girl.

Chris · Married on 10/20/2012
We hired Stephanie to photograph our wedding and from our first meeting with her, we never gave our decision a second thought. Stephanie made us feel so comfortable from the start. She has a super personality that puts you at ease and makes it easy to ask any question. She is very professional and is quick to return a phonecall or to answer a quick question. We wanted our wedding pictures to be one aspect of our wedding where we didn't cut corners, as we knew that our pictures would be the one thing that would remain long after the day. Stephanie did an amazing job the day of the wedding and we couldn't be happier with our pictures. If you want great results at a fair price and want to work with a terrific person in the process. Give Stephanie a call. You won't regret your decision.'t

Stephanie is an amazing photographer! The minute I met her I felt completely at ease, she is professional yet still very personable. She makes you feel like a friend not a "client" and as soon as I saw her work I knew I wanted her to capture the memories of our special day. She captured every special moment of our wedding and I could not be happier with our pictures. We continually get compliments on how beautiful our pictures are:) In my opinion you will not find a better photographer!!!
Lindsey · Married on 10/06/2012
Stephanie was wonderful to work with. Anything I had in my head that I wanted or had seen somewhere (pinterest HAHA) she was just like, "we can try and make it happen." All of my bridesmaids said how much fun she was and how easy she made the picture taking. I haven't gotten any actual prints yet, but from the digital images I have seen they are AWESOME! I would definitely recommend her for a photographer!
Megan · Married on 09/29/2012
Stephanie was so wonderful to work with. She was the only photographer that actualy set aside time to meet me and show me her portfolio. So from the get go she was an A+ in my books. She has a wonderful personality and really takes pride in what she does. You can tell through the photographs that she really enjoys every bit of it. And the quality of the pictures are out of this world! She pretty well made my wedding day as smooth as possible. I didn't have any doubt with her. She was very professional but at the same time I feel like I gained a friend.
Brooke · Married on 09/15/2012
Stephanie was wonderful at our wedding. Our pictures were amazing and she was so creative. She also was a lifesaver to have around, she made our whole day run smoothly. We love our pictures and the album we ordered after will be a keepsake for a lifetime. She also did our engagement pics too. We were very satisfied and highly recommend her!!!
Dria · Married on 08/11/2012
Photography was just as important as my dress! Seriously! Stephanie is absolutely amazing! She did our engagement and wedding photos. She made me feel so comfortable, all the time! She made us laugh, and we really had a great time with her. I was absolutely thrilled with all of our pictures. She captured some amazing moments that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. She is very organized and very good with communicating! I can't say enough about her! I would absolutely recommend her if you are in the Southern Illinois area. Look her up!! You will not be disappointed!!

Stephanie was AMAZING! It rained most of my wedding day and she still found a way to do outdoor pictures that turned out amazing! She is so easy to work with and always put a smile on my face.
Allie · Married on 07/14/2012

Kristin · Married on 06/16/2012
My name is Kristin Helm-Bremer and I used Stephanie Miligan-Susie Photography for my wedding day and engagement photos and she was AMAZING! Normally, I don't feel comfortable in front of photographers but that wasn't the case because she made me feel natural, comfortable, and relaxed. The day of my wedding was pain free when it came to photography she worked her butt off and was nice to everyone in my family and stayed overtime during the reception to get all the shots. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer. She was intelligent and professional and down to earth. I promise she will do an outstanding job and never let you down. She will get the shots you have always dreamed of getting. (Example: my husbands face watching me come down the isle) I can't thank her enough for making my photos bring my wedding day back to life each time I take a look at them. 5 out of 5 stars is what Stephanie gets and I promise, you will rate her that way too!

Before I was even engaged, when I was just dreaming about my future wedding, I knew I wanted Stephanie to take my wedding photos. I had seen lots of portraits, engagements, and wedding photos that she had taken of other couples in my hometown area and I just loved the quality of her images and her style of photography. I loved every light-filled photo I saw her take, perfectly capturing the smiles, laughter and mood of the moment. I knew that on my wedding day, she was the one that would capture every moment into a perfect keepsake to cherish forever. After we were engaged and we started the planning process, I contacted her immediately. She was so friendly and engaging even just over e-mail that my confidence was even further reassured in her. She was so nice and worked with us to create the perfect photography package for our wedding that made sure we got everything we wanted. As the wedding got closer, I met with her in person to go over the details for the wedding day and she was so clear in helping me establish a timeline for the wedding day to make sure that everything would run smoothly and that I would get all the shots I desired. I love being organized and so her wedding knowledge was such a life-saver for the day-of wedding organization. Our wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect and Stephanie captured it so wonderfully. She felt like a friend I had known forever and was like a photographer and a day-of wedding coordinator all in one. She kept the timeline for the wedding day on track working practically non-stop from early that morning to late that evening, not missing a single special moment. She did such an amazing job making us laugh for the pictures and even went out of her way to joke with little kiddos so that even they had smiles on their faces in the images. She made taking pictures one of the most fun parts of our wedding day. I’m so thankfully to have her wonderful images to look back on one of the most meaningful days of my life.

I loved working with Stephie Photography. Stephanie made our day very special. She is fun to work with, easy to get along with and very professional. Stephanie is very organized when it comes to whatever she is doing. I have been in many weddings this year, but out of all of them she was one of the most organized professional I have worked with. Hope to create many more memorable moments with Stephie Photography.
