  • 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 was everything we could have asked for in a wedding photographer! From the moment we met her at our engagement shoot, we knew she was going to capture our day and our love so perfectly. Stephanie really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and makes you feel so comfortable in front of the camera! We are so in love with our photos and will cherish them forever :) I highly recommend Stephanie for all your photography needs!

  • We absolutely love Stephanie! She first sat with us and listened to our love story and what we wanted out of our wedding pictures, and she delivered exactly what we wanted. She's really good at making you feel comfortable and taking pictures that don't look staged, and she really captures the true emotion of the day. We are thrilled with the results and are glad to now call her a friend. We can't wait to use her again for family pictures down the road!

  • We chose Stephanie to be our wedding photographer for our wedding this past September and she was incredible. We were amazed by the amount of high quality photographs we received from her and all the moments she was able to capture of our special day. Also, things can be stressful on your wedding day but Stephanie's calm and composed demeanor throughout the day made everything much better. Even though we were running a little late on taking photographs before the sunset, Stephanie was calm and laid back, which allowed us to relax and just enjoy the day. She was easily the best vendor at our wedding. If you want high quality photographs and even higher quality service from a vendor, I would highly recommend Stephanie Smith.

  • Stephanie was so sweet. The photos were amazing, there was not a single photo I disliked or felt that she missed. My cousin is a wedding photographer herself and was also impressed.

  • Stephanie is FANTASTIC! We loved working with her! She is so bright and bubbly, and she makes you feel very comfortable in front of the camera. Her products are amazing, and we are so glad that we went with her! She was so much fun to have there on our wedding day, and we are already in love with the previews we have received.

  • Stephanie was such pleasure to work with throughout our whole wedding process! She is super detail-oriented, thoughtful, punctual, and worked extremely hard to make sure my fiancé and I got everything we wanted from our engagement and wedding photos. During the wedding, she helped put everyone at ease, and my whole family was impressed with the quality of our photos. I am so glad we hired Stephanie!

  • Stephanie started getting to know us and our vision for the wedding about 10 months prior to the event. She went out of her way to get to know my husband and I, who we are individually and as a couple, and worked with us to create the perfect series of photos- she was very professional, organized, timely, and amazingly detail oriented. She got some photos of things I would never have thought of, through the eye of a creative, artistic and thoughtful photographer- details in photographs that we can know cherish forever. She was also very in tune with the feelings of the day, going out of her way to provide a fun experience when taking group and solo shots, but was also, somehow, able to remain unseen to get really candid shots of friends and family- and she worked really well with our dog too!

  • 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.

  • I cannot say enough good things about Stephanie!! I found Stephanie on Instagram and immediately reached out. I only had a 5 month engagement, so I was crossing my fingers she had my date. She was so kind, even in her emails. We first did an engagement shoot in downtown Raleigh. She made great suggestions for locations. I loved how she gave us direction on what to do but also let us be ourselves as she captured candid shots. She was so sweet and really got to know us throughout the shoot. Because of our engagement shoot with her, when our wedding day came around my husband and I felt so comfortable in front of the camera and with her. On our wedding day, unexpectedly it SNOWED. A lot. But Stephanie didn't let the snow affect her shots. In fact she did the most amazing job capturing every detail on our day. She was so great in helping me around in the snow, positioning us and just all together being awesome. When we got our pictures back I was over the moon. They were BETTER than I even... Read more
