“Working with Stephanie was a breeze.  She has an innate ability to capture objects within a dream of their surroundings -which is what weddings really look like.  She has a great ability to capture people in their best light.  I love that on our rocky/grassy/watery/woodsy terrain she kicked off her shoes and skipped around getting every shot she could.  It took her only moments to get her compositions right, and she didn’t waste time on it, understanding that our priorities were torn between good photographic representation and being in the moment.  She was able to take her photography unobtrusively into the moment with us, with truly captivating results.  I will use Stephanie again, even if I have to make up an occasion!”

“For my wedding, as far as pictures go, I wanted something non-traditional. Before I even thought about who would be my photographer for my wedding, I knew that Stephanie was very talented at what she does. Later on when the planning actually began for the wedding, we knew we definitely wanted Stephanie to be our photographer because of her artsy perspective and her different and unique style. Not only is Stephanie an amazing technical photographer, she was super fun to be around during the rehearsal dinner and wedding day. As a bride I felt one million percent relaxed because I knew she would do a wonderful job and she understood what I was looking for in my wedding pictures. Stephanie caught all of the moments I wanted to capture and have forever. She also did not bombard us or anyone at all like some photographers might. She seems to discreetly take pictures, however Stephanie captured all of the special moments and more. I loved every single thing that Stephanie did for our wedding and we also appreciate everything so very much. The pictures came out absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much, Stephanie!”

“Working with Stephanie was a breeze! She has a way of capturing the essence of people – their inner spirit – their love – their happiness…and the world around them! I had so much fun with her as she did a quick engagement shoot of me and my fiance around town. Her excitement, passion, and creativity is so fun! Thank You! :)”

“Stephanie, I so appreciated how you were not at all obtrusive during the ceremony. You were pretty much invisible during the ceremony and I really loved that. Thank you!”

I had a very short engagement period, so I was in need of a photographer quickly! Stephanie was quick to respond to my initial contact and was flexible regarding the timing and location of my wedding. She was attentive to my requests regarding the big day and was a joy to work with. I had plenty of stress on my plate the weekend of the wedding, but Stephanie provided support & encouragement. (She even grabbed a glue gun and helped me fix my shoes the morning of the wedding!). Beyond that, we were pleased with how quickly she got us our edited photos and were grateful that she was considerate when we had questions. She went out of her way to make sure we had what we requested. I would highly recommend her as a photographer!

Stephanie combines a true talent for photography with a very engaging, warm personality. My wife and I hired her to photograph us with our young son on an autumn afternoon at a pumpkin farm. We wanted some nice autumnal photos of our family. She put us at ease from the very beginning and made the experience as natural and comfortable as possible. We never felt like we were bossed around, and every shot felt real and not posed. The results were fantastic. Beautiful, candid photographs that I am always happy to show off to my friends and family. Stephanie does amazing work and I would recommend her to ANYONE looking to hire her for family photographs.

Stephanie was absolutely amazing to work with. She was professional and super fun! She made myself and my entire wedding party feel comfortable with the pictures she was taking. She really captured the perfect moments between my Husband and I, including the moments we did not get to see – which was really important. When I look back at my pictures I have no doubt that I picked the absolutely best photographer.

Stephanie did a wonderful job with the photos, especially since the time allotted for photos ended up getting cut very short. She did a fantastic job with a small amount of time. She was responsive to my requests. She did an excellent job with capturing candid moments… I felt like she did captured all the important moments so well that I didn’t even miss having a videographer… She also was fast in turn around time — I got the photos just one month after our wedding!

Stephanie has a great eye for content and style of the photographs. She stays in the background and never intrudes yet also seemed to not miss a single event going on. She is clever, imaginative and innovative in both the staged photos and in capturing the real time events. We could simply have not been more pleased with the taking of the photos and the finished product.
