about me

I’m Stephanie, a Grand Rapids, Michigan based Wedding Photographer. I’m not the kind of wedding photographer that only shows up on your wedding day. I love creating a process that is customized to your perfectly imperfect day. You will often find me creating timelines, sending out inspirational blogs, or putting together those beautiful and modern wedding details all while ensuring that your joyful day is captured in every way possible!
 
Apart from photographing gorgeous weddings in and around the state of Michigan, I could talk all day about great chocolates, craft beers, and I have a serious coffee problem that changes with the seasons. My favorite places include a view of Lake Michigan, or an ocean!
 
Today, I photograph and work with a tight group of very special couples locally and abroad. I spend the rest of my time making travel plans and co-leading a local creative entrepreneur group because I believe in community and the wonderful inspiration it brings. So let’s get together, talk about what excites you, and discover what will make your very special day truly yours!

Hello Sweet Friend!

and of course, weddings!

the quick facts, I love....

my purpose

So, why do I feel like I thrive on a high stake wedding day? It’s not just about loving to capture beautiful images because if that was the case, I probably would photograph something other than people. However, it’s always been about the people. People over pictures-always! When it comes down to capturing memories from one of the brightest days of your life, it’s not about me, it’s about you, and everyone that come together to celebrate.

All of the business day-to-day tasks like emails and scheduling and giving you as much knowledge as my brain can dump out at you are all with the purpose of giving you the best day ever. I truly believe that my interactions and experiences that I give my couples are a special opportunity to give you memories that you’ll never forget! There is no greater feeling than seeing my work bring my couples and their loved ones to tears! I leave a wedding days with big hugs, kisses on the cheeks, and a full heart knowing that I forever impacted one couple who brought everyone together!

why do I even do this?

As you’re looking through this website, you might notice it’s lacking LGBTQ+ couples. I want to know that it is simply because I have not had a chance to photograph an LGBTQ+ Wedding yet. I have spoken to 2 different couples in the past, but it either did not work out because of pricing or I did not have a second shooter at the time that I could rely on. However, I am so happy to work with any couple!

process

This is where friendship with my couples starts, right over a wonderful cup of coffee talking all things wedding! It’s where you tell me what your biggest Wedding Day dreams are, what ideas and inspirations you love and from there, I make sure you feel confident and comfortable, knowing that we’re a good fit for one another, which leads to me capturing the best day ever for you!

Stephanie was hands down the best person we worked with throughout our entire wedding and planning process. I can't even count the amount of compliments we have received from our friends and family on Stephanie herself and the work she did for our wedding; she was the most complimented vendor we had! She goes beyond an absolutely phenomenal photographer, she is a great resource for all things wedding related, and she is SO hands on with ensuring everything leading up to and on the big day goes exactly as you planned.

 Stephanie is truly a beautiful soul and the amount of passion she has just pours out of her work; she has a way of making you feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and knows exactly how to create picture perfect moments. Our engagement photos and wedding photos turned out better than I could have ever imagined and I will be forever grateful we chose Stephanie to capture those most important moments in our life!

Photography was something that was extremely important to us both but sometimes my fiancé is a hard sell, he is overly skeptical and in his own words “unphotogenic”. At my insistence we booked Stephanie and did our engagement session with her. Our session could not have been more fun and relaxing. Stephanie’s constant coaching and posing tips made us feel at ease and it absolutely showed in our finished pictures. After we received our engagement photos, we both had complete confidence in Stephanie and her work.

Stephanie was involved in many steps of our planning process, met with us often and was always just an e-mail away should I have questions or concerns. Stephanie built the timeline for our wedding day and she did everything in her power to keep us to it; we received many compliments that our wedding ran on schedule and that was all thanks to Stephanie, she kept the bridal party in line and things moving forward which I knew would be a difficult task as many of our party are easily distractible. Stephanie is extremely detail oriented and professional but at the same time fun and easy going, her laughter and smiles as she is shooting make you feel like you are working with a friend, not someone who is over serious, she is no nonsense at times but it is definitely needed, especially on the wedding day.

Where do I begin when recommending Stephanie Parshall?? From the moment we met (at Starbucks in Kalamazoo), my fiance and I loved her! She was bright, organized and SOOOOO interested in "our" story. She loves love! Stephanie's talents were evident from her website and through the photos she shared during our Starbucks date - but were absolutely undeniable during our engagement shoot.

 She was fun, made us feel totally comfortable in front of the camera and truly captured our love, our love spirit. Flash forward to our wedding day - again, Stephanie hit our look and feel right on the head. She even photographed my bouquet with a photo of my late mother and me. That photo is one of my most favorite - and it's just something she did because it felt right and she was tuned into us. I recommend her wholeheartedly!

Stephanie is an amazing wedding photographer!! She helped my wife and I though the entire process. As part of our package, Stephanie came to Pittsburgh to shoot our engagement session and the pictures came out amazing. She was always available for questions and was a great support system for us. The turn around time for the wedding pictures was super fast and they all were fantastic!

 There were some pictures that were added that we had no idea happened at the wedding, but were so grateful for Stephanie to capture those once in a lifetime moments. Overall, Stephanie is an amazing person and an extremely talented photographer!! I can, without hesitation, recommend Stephanie for all you photography needs!

She is truly the BEST! I first hired Stephanie for new business head shots and she was pure magic. She made me feel absolutely gorgeous and comfortable in front of the camera. I’ve hired her multiple times since and of course had to have her for my wedding day! She is an irreplaceable member of your wedding team and the memories she captured on our big day are truly art.

Everyone raves about our fairytale wedding after seeing our photos. She will always go above and beyond her duties as a photographer to support you in ways you don’t always know you need. She braved the polar vortex and rode on a ski lift for the first time to capture epic shots that I cherish. She has become my go to photographer for every life event and I can’t recommend her enough. Hurry and book her, you’ll be happy you did!
