We found Stephanie on TikTok and we were slightly obsessed. From the tips that she shared to her beautiful photography we knew we wanted to use her for our wedding. I (Micaela) actually got Stephanie to photograph my proposal to Kylie! She was so accommodating responding to my hundreds of emails, and even helped find a second location when the first one was no longer there. Fast forward to amazing engagement photos in Chicago, and several zoom conversations regarding timeline (hello planning and organizing queen Stephanie!!) and it was finally our wedding day.

The day of the wedding, she showed up so early, took thousands of beautiful photographs and made sure the whole day ran smoothly. Stephanie even helped Kylie and I fix a minor seating chart issue. She went above and beyond in every way, and our families could not stop commenting about how great of a photographer she was! We will always be so thankful that we found Stephanie and cannot wait for the next time we need photos taken!

Where do I even begin to describe our experience with Stephanie. I luckily found Stephanie on TikTok. I was immediately drawn by her work and her attention to detail. During our engagement session we were finally able to meet her in person, and it’s crazy to think my husband and I immediately felt comfortable around her. She was able to capture our laughter and true selves. Stephanie is responsive to all emails and questions. 

Fast forward to our actual wedding day, Stephanie was very professional and she did an amazing job. Stephanie was helpful with EVERYTHING! No seriously, she did a lot, from helping my mom pin my veil to keeping everyone on track and even helping me stay warm outside (while waiting to do a first look with my dad and brothers). My husband and I knew, our wedding day would be perfect because she made sure everything was running smoothly!

Our photos are PERFECT, they are so beautiful. I can literally tell you the exact songs we were dancing to, the conversations we were having, the I Love You’s that were said just by looking at our photos! She captured everything!! She is the type of vendor you continue to keep in contact with because she makes you feel like a friendship was created and my husband and I are truly SO THANKFUL we found her!!

Stephanie was AMAZING!! She went above and beyond her duties as our photographer to make our day the ABSOLUTE best day of our lives. Obviously if you've seen her work, you know that her photography skills are exceptional. She has a great eye that helped capture our love on camera better than we could have ever hoped. More than that, though, she made us feel so comfortable and really helped us have so much fun taking our pictures which I believe is also reflected in our photos. Our pictures show us laughing and captured our natural smiles because we really were laughing and having a great time.

Stephanie also was exceptionally professional and organized throughout the planning process. She made it so easy for us and took so much off of our plate by helping to develop a thorough timeline on the big day. In addition, she went out of her way to coordinate with our wedding planner and videographer to make sure everyone was on the same page. I would recommend Stephanie to absolutely anyone looking for an incredibly talented, kind, and FUN photographer. We absolutely LOVED working with her, and feel like we gained a friend at the end of all of this. Please hire Steph! You won't regret it.

Stephanie was amazing from the beginning to the end. Starting with our engagement session she made the best calls as it began to rain during it and the outcome were stunning. Before the wedding day she was always happy to answer questions, hop on calls and was super communicative and prompt with ourselves, our wedding coordinator and anyone else we asked her to speak to. Once Stephanie got to California she was so helpful in photographing our welcome event the day before our wedding.

On the wedding day she was early, ready to go and did not miss a beat, or a special moment. We got married in over 100 degree weather in direct sunlight, and she moved us so quickly and got everyone through the day with ease. Once we received our gallery we could not have been happier with how our photos turned out. I cannot rave enough about her skill set, photographs, professionalism, communication and overall amazement of all the things she captured leading up and on our wedding day. Thank you Stephanie for the incredible job you did.

Having Stephanie as my photographer was the best decision I made throughout my entire wedding planning. I knew from our engagement session that she was going to be everything I wanted in a photographer. I received multiple compliments throughout my wedding day from my bridal party and guests just how amazing Stephanie is.

She’s extremely professional but so funny at the same time. She knows exactly how to pose you and was directing us in so many different poses making sure we got the perfect shot. I love that about her! She was a blast to work with! Her confidence and experience made my wedding day a breeze.
