  • Stephanie is absolutely AMAZING! We had our engagement photos taken by her in August and I couldn't recommend her more. The day of our photos, weather was unpredictable. Coming from Charlotte, I was so anxious about rescheduling or coming up with an alternative plan. Stephanie swooped in, proposing a solution and the utmost guidance. She was extremely professional, and flexible with our timing and travel arrangements. She kept me calm throughout the entire process (which was much needed) and made our shoot a BLAST! She also delivered our gallery back to us on a tight time table to send our save the dates. And might I add - the pictures were AMAZING! We can't wait to have her shoot our wedding next September!

    Ahh!! Thank you so much, Rachel! I have to say, even though we did your photos a bit earlier than we planned that day, i'm not sure they could have gone any better! And please tell all your friends about wearing dusty blue dresses because that's what engagement dreams are made of :D :D

  • Working with Stephanie has been such an amazing experience! Not only are the photos absolutely beautiful and high-quality, but they also do a good job of capturing our relationship. She made sure we felt comfortable the whole time throughout our engagement shoot and the pictures are genuine. I am so impressed with how professional and timely she has been with us, it really makes you feel like a top priority of hers. Stephanie is so fun-loving and sweet; I would definitely recommend her to everyone!

  • Stephanie took our engagement photos this past summer and my fiance and were THRILLED with the results. She was professional and made us both feel really comfortable in front of the camera (we can both be awkward humans). Our wedding is in May 2020 and I know our wedding photos will be as stunning as our engagement photos! Highly recommend!

  • Let me cut to the chase: you’re not going to find a better, more engaged, affordable, and practiced wedding photographer than Stephanie. My wife and I had a Skype meeting after a few weeks of searching (we had actually just been stood up by another wedding photographer we were supposed to talk with), and Stephanie approached it all with an attitude of service and wanting to achieve our dreams for the wedding. To be honest, what hooked me was her backstory—she had been burned by the photographer she used for her own wedding, and that made her want to do better for other couples. Every step of the way she was super helpful- most of all in fitting a coverage package to our budget. We ended up with 6 hours of coverage, a single shooter, and a deal for 400-500 photos. For our price range, other photographers couldn’t get us anything near that much (or that quality). Go checkout her website- the work speaks for itself. On the day of the wedding, Stephanie had us all organized, ... Read more

  • Stephanie and Charles are by far the best option for your photography and videography needs. They were perfectly professional, energetic, and most of all, the pictures were perfect.

  • Stephanie was absolutely incredible during our entire wedding process! We had our engagement session, bridal portrait session, and wedding day photographed, and she was on top of it the entire time! She was so great at touching base with me throughout the year, and really cared enough to talk about what my vision was, and to make sure that we were able to put together a great timeline for our wedding day! (She and her husband Charles were also really great at getting creative shots when we had some unexpected rainy and windy weather!) We have so many photos of this wonderful year that we will cherish forever thanks to Stephanie! 100% recommend!

  • I would recommend Stephanie to anyone!! She was great at communication, willing to accommodate all my requests, and did an outstanding job at capturing my wedding despite the rain. Stephanie didn’t care how drenched she got in order to get the perfect shots and didn’t complain once, not to mention the photos came out amazing!! Can’t thank her enough!

  • I did a TON of research on photographers and videographers for our big day because that was the thing we cared the most about. I remember searching and sending off inquiries for hours, but I especially remember finding Stephanie Axtell Photography on Instagram and REALLY hoping it would work out. Well I am SO happy it did because Stephanie and her husband Charles were the absolute best--I mean, like, we keep talking about how awesome not just our photos are, but how awesome *the people* were to work with. I was nervous that photographers would be cheesy or force-fit candid pictures and it would be uncomfortable behind the scenes (despite the pictures being great), but those concerns were immediately put to rest when we did our engagement pictures. Stephanie was very easy to work with, accommodating and also gave great advice no matter the questions we threw at her. The photos came out BEAUTIFUL and we got even more excited for our big day. I went on to do bridal portraits with Stephani... Read more

    Omg Heather! I can't begin to tell you how thankful I AM for finding us! Not only are you two the kind of couple that makes my job so easy, but your photos have been everything for us! And so much of that was because you were willing to ask questions and interact with me and make it so fun to work with you and all your friends and family! Anytime you guys need any other photo needs for your future we'll be there for you!

  • When it came to my wedding, the most important thing to me was to have amazing photos to cherish with my husband for the rest of our lives. I am so glad that we chose Stephanie to capture our day. We were honestly blown away by how perfect our photos were. She somehow captured the feel of my reception perfectly. Also I cannot rave enough about her detail photos!! If you are considering choosing her, DO IT! You will not be disappointed.

  • My fiancé, Calvin, and I were so excited to get our pictures done at the beach. We absolutely love the beach and spend any free time at the beach. In fact, the beach is where I realized that I was falling for Calvin and knew he was going to be something special in my life. Anyway, we scheduled our pictures and then Mother Nature had other plans. Stephanie kept in contact all the way up to when the hurricane hit and then was very quick to reschedule our pictures, when we realized that the hurricane was going to hit the area. After the hurricane we had to switch our location for pictures because our original location wasn't a good spot after the hurricane and Stephanie recommend Fort Fisher. It was a great recommendation and the pictures turned out BEAUTIFUL. Stephanie had such a great personality and made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Her technique to get the look she wanted were clever and had a way to turn the photoshoot into a new memory with stories to tell. A great p... Read more

  • Stephanie did an amazing job with our engagement, bridal, and wedding photos! I could not have asked for a better experience. We had a beach wedding at Shell Island Resort and it turned out really well! Stephanie's photography style was classy and elegant but also creative and artistic! She was professional and always arrived on time and prepared to start the photo session. Her videography team did an excellent job of recording our wedding and reception without us even noticing that they were there. We can't wait to see how the ceremony video and wedding movie turn out! Thanks again for all of your hard work and the time and care that you put into capturing all of our special moments!

    Oh Kristy!! I'm so thrilled you chose us to be there to capture your wedding day - it means everything to us, and I can't thank you enough for that AND for these kind words. I can't wait for you to see the rest! :D

  • From the first phone call I had with Stephanie, I knew we had to have her capture our wedding! She was super easy to talk to and it was evident she was super passionate about what she is doing! My husband and I first did our engagement photo session with Stephanie. We arrived a little nervous and unsure of what to expect, but Stephanie blew us away! She made us feel super comfortable throughout the entire session and had amazing techniques to help us relax so she could capture some amazing shots. After our engagement session I knew the wedding photos were going to be amazing! Day of the wedding Stephanie and her husband were awesome!! She went above and beyond that day and even helped me as I struggled getting into my dress. She also captured every special moment from the day. I am so happy we had Stephanie there for one of the best days of our life! She not only is wonderful, but so are her photos!! We really cannot pick a favorite because there are so many we love! I highly recom... Read more

    Ohh Chaney! Thank you so much! I can't tell you how much of a treat is was for me to work with you - I literally felt like I got to have a little part of my favorite city with your wedding (shoutout to RVA and VCU peeps at the wedding), and your photos have been some of my favorite to share! I wish you both so much love and happiness :D
