  • 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.

  • I'm so glad that we stumbled upon Stephanie's website when looking for a photographer! We couldn't be more pleased with our overall experience and the quality of our photos. Stephanie is organized, efficient, and takes gorgeous, creative photos. She's also incredibly personable and felt more like a friend than a vendor by the time our wedding day arrived. I would highly recommend to all!

  • Stephanie is absolutely wonderful!! She is so talented, and has a calming presence that you will appreciate so much on your big day. She is easy to work with and I found her prices very reasonable compared to other photographers I talked to. But most importantly, her photos are GORGEOUS!!

  • We had the honor of having Stephanie as our photographer for our wedding at The Bradford. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out amazing as expected. Her expertise in documentary and portrait style photography is immediately evident in her online portfolio, and completely sets her apart from other wedding photographers. Her use of lighting and composition is simply STUNNING. When we called to inquire about her availability, Stephanie’s warmth and easy-going nature came through even over the phone. Stephanie captured our big day perfectly!!

  • 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!

  • We hired Stephanie to take our engagement photos this past fall. Stephanie is very sweet and the engagement shoot went fine. She was great at directing us for the photos but also good at letting us "act natural". However, after the engagement shoot her responsiveness turned into snail mail and I was having to email her multiple times to receive a response. The lack of communication on her end was very frustrating, as you can imagine. I ordered prints from Stephanie November 8th and never received a status on my order. I reached out again (and again) on December 9th only to receive a response from her that there had been an account issue. She did provide us with a little bit of a refund and submitted our order again. We will (hopefully) be receiving the order in the New Year, two months after it was purchased. Overall, I'm just disappointed with the lack of status updates on our purchase and the lack of responses/communication on her end. These photos are very important to us and our ex... Read more

    Hi Hayle, I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your experience— I really enjoyed working with you two during your engagement session, and again apologize for the complication with the two prints that you ordered. I wish you the best with your big day next year.
