  • I am sooooo happy that we had Stephanie as our photographer for both our engagement session and our big day! She is the absolute sweetest and very very good at what she does! The whole planning process was extremely easy with her and because of Covid, we did have to reschedule, which also was so easy and stress free! My husband is very camera shy and does not like taking pictures but Stephanie made us both feel sooooo comfortable in front of the camera! I really wanted engagement photos for when we got engaged and I loved that they came with any package that you booked with her! Her prices are very reasonable for what you get and for how talented she is! She really focuses on the natural beauty and connection between the couple, which I loved! We did not want those cheesy very 'posed' pictures. Stephanie is very kind, funny, easy going, very professional, etc! I could go on and on! If you are looking for wedding photography or really any other type of photography that she offers, look ... Read more

  • We can’t say enough great things about Stephanie! She was our photographer for our engagement photos as well as the big day (which was rescheduled from May to September due to COVID). She is both a wonderful person and an extremely talented photographer. She made the planning process easy - we had to do everything over the phone as we are based in Washington, DC - and made us feel comfortable during our shoots. I would not hesitate to hire her for future events or sing her praises to friends, family, or perfect strangers!

  • Stephanie is wonderful to work with! She captured so many beautiful engagement and wedding shots, especially at golden hour. We don’t enjoy being the center of attention, but she made the photo experience easy. We are so happy with our photos! Highly recommend!

  • I don’t even know where to start with all of the great things I have to say about Stephanie. To get this out of the way: financially, her packages are amazing for the quality and quantity that you get. But more importantly - she photographed us for our engagement pictures, my bridal portraits, our (eventual) wedding after rescheduling 4 times due to covid... and I just couldn’t imagine having a sweeter, brighter, funnier, more amazing photographer (turned friend) to go through all of this with us. She was patient, encouraging, supportive, sympathetic, professional, uplifting... the list goes on and on. One thing I will never ever forget was that I was having conflicting thoughts on whether I could pull off having our dogs take pictures with me and my (now) husband before the ceremony - without either of us seeing each other. She told me that we could make it happen and that I would regret it if we didn’t at least try. “Worst case scenario, it’s a hot mess and we get some real... Read more

  • Stephanie is without a doubt the best photographer. My husband and I loved working with her so much - she is so sweet and easy to work with her. Her work is absolutely amazing, we’ve received so many compliments and so many people asked who took our photos. I highly recommend hiring her, you will not regret it. She is simply the best photographer out there.

  • We had our engagement photos, bridal portraits, and wedding photos taken by Stephanie who I cannot recommend enough - she is the kindest and most thoughtful person who makes you feel so comfortable throughout the sessions and I really feel like she wants to get to know you as a couple and not just a client. We LOVED her style of photography, she captured some really great genuine moments - especially on the day of the wedding. They turned out so gorgeous - we are incredibly happy we got to work with her!

  • I cannot say enough good things about working with Stephanie. It’s a given that her pictures are gorgeous, but there are so many other advantages to working with her. She makes the photography aspect of the event so natural and pleasant. She is a calm presence in an otherwise stressful situation. During our engagement shoot and our wedding photos, she made my husband and I feel very comfortable. This is so important when you’re trying to capture candid shots. I love the style of her photography – it captures the little moments beyond the “smile and look at the camera” shots. Those candid moments are the ones I have framed in my house, because they capture the smiles, laughter, and love radiating from the couple she’s photographing. The day of our wedding was rainy, but Stephanie went anywhere and everywhere outside with us to get the pictures we wanted. She rode with us in a golf cart to a specific bridge we wanted our photo at, and I’m sure she got soaked because ... Read more

  • Picking Stephanie to be our photographer was THE best decision we made throughout our entire wedding planning process. Stephanie is the most genuine, fun, and down to earth person we've ever met. Our engagement, bridal portraits, and wedding pictures were absolutely stunning and perfectly illustrated our love for each other. We're so happy we found Stephanie to be our photographer and we're lucky enough to now call her a friend.

  • Stephanie was the absolute best photographer for our wedding! She was so easy and fun to work with. I hate being in front of the camera but she made all of our photos look so natural. I am so happy with our gorgeous engagement and wedding photos. She completed all of our photos exactly when she said she would and kept us updated on the editing process. I would 100% recommend her.

  • Working with Stephanie for our wedding photography was a dream! My husband and I planned our wedding in North Carolina remotely and I fell in love with Stephanie’s work that I found on Instagram. After exchanging a few emails, I could tell Stephanie would be so pleasant to work with! We first met in person at our engagement session, with Stephanie traveling to my family’s home on the lake. We had so much fun shooting and Stephanie made us feel super comfortable with posing. Stephanie made sure to note which pictures would be most important to us the day of – pictures of our nieces and nephews, first kiss shots, and the getaway car. It’s so special to have these pictures wonderfully captured. I would absolutely recommend working with Photographs by Stephanie, and will definitely reach out to her for anniversary or maternity shoots in the future. Thank you Stephanie!

  • Stephanie did a wonderful job on our engagement and wedding photos! During our engagement session, we had some unexpected cold weather. Stephanie worked with us throughout our session as we took our winter coats on and off. Even though we were shivering and freezing, she still managed to take some beautiful engagement photos. Leading up to our big day, she was also very organized and prompt in her communication. She made my husband and I feel very natural in front of the camera, which we so appreciated. Stephanie is incredibly talented and has a keen eye for detail. Some of my favorite photos are the detailed shots Stephanie took of our wedding rings and flowers. Her photography style is very romantic and moody. I would highly recommend Stephanie Smith if you are looking for a genuine, kind, organized, and talented photographer.

  • We hired Stephanie for our wedding a few weeks ago. We were looking for a whimsical style for our outdoor, bohemian wedding. Not only was Stephanie's work gorgeous, but she's such a sweet, easy-going person who made my husband and I take pictures. She sent me previews of our wedding pictures today and I am so in love with them that I cannot WAIT to get the rest back. She's definitely up for whatever kind of pictures you're wanting to take - the more unique, the better. Her turnaround time for getting pictures is also impressive. I'm so glad we went with Stephanie for our wedding day.

  • My now-husband and I can’t say enough wonderful things about Stephanie, she has been an absolute joy to work with during the wedding planning process. Not only is she very reliable and organized, but she has such a sweet and welcoming demeanor that you can’t help but feel at ease with her right away! Our photos were absolutely gorgeous and we were so grateful to have found her.

  • Stephanie is a gem -- as a person and a vendor. We hired her for both our engagement session and our wedding. She was highly responsive and showed up on time. She also coordinated with our videographer before the wedding day to make sure everything went smoothly for our first look. I really appreciated how I didn't have to worry about anything on my wedding day.

  • Stephanie is an amazing photographer! We were so lucky to have her capture our wedding. Stephanie listened to what we wanted and did a great job helping us prepare for the day, with lists, resources, and tips. Stephanie has an eye for catching the special moments of a wedding. She took beautiful portraits of us and our families, but the photos we cherish the most are of the unexpected moments. Our wedding was so beautiful and so much fun and you can see that is all the pictures. If you are looking for a photographer who can truly capture the essence of the wedding, not just take great portraits, Stephanie is your lady!
