  • It’s always hard doing an online review that I know will not even come close to encompassing how amazing, dedicated, talented, and perfect Stephanie was for our engagements, wedding day and beyond! She is so personable and assertive, keeping an eye on the clock at all times to get every single shot that I wanted, while making every moment fun. My bridesmaids were constantly telling me how great she was doing throughout the day and how they wanted her as their wedding photographer. My husband and I are still astonished at how good she is with directing poses for formals and with lighting. Our wedding photos are so insanely gorgeous and thanks to SAP we get to relive our best day ever with all these perfectly executed snap shots 🤍 we are especially thankful for all the fun reception dancing photos— seeing the joy on everyone’s face is something you can’t put a price on. We cannot thank you enough Stephanie!

  • We hired Stephanie to shoot our engagement session and wedding/reception and couldn't be happier with her work! She really made us feel comfortable with the engagement shoot as we never had professional pictures taken before. She had beautiful places to go in Wilmington and endless cute poses. For the wedding, she ensured that she caught every important moment and knew how to direct everyone's attention for the best photos. She got us 80 "highlight" photos on Monday.. 2 days after the wedding! And it only took her ~4-5 weeks to get our entire album. We are so pleased with our pictures and so thankful for Stephanie. We would recommend her to anyone!!!

  • So many different vendors are involved in a wedding. Of all the various vendors I worked with for our wedding, Stephanie and Charles were, by far, the very best and my favorites to work with. I researched quite a few photographers/videographers and, without a doubt, the Axtells had the absolute highest quality of work for the most affordable price. You will not find a more affordable, more talented duo than the Axtells. Both of them were so flexible, professional, timely, made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and took the time to learn about us and our personalities to ensure that they were able to capture US. They did just that and more! With COVID-19 throwing quite a few wrenches in to our wedding plans, they were so accommodating and helpful in ensuring we were taken care of with phenomenal photos and videos. After engagement photos, getting to know them at other weddings of some of our friends, and spending our wedding day with them, I view the Axtells as friends ... Read more

    Brooke! You're literally one in a million, you've been our best cheerleader from day one, and I can't wait to continue capturing all the steps on your wedding journey! Next time we're in Raleigh (and everything's open) we'd love to grab a drink!!!

  • I can't say enough good things about Stephanie and Charles. What an incredible team of talented individuals. I chose them based on their portfolio, organization and reviews but wow what a joy they are to work with. They made everyone so happy and comfortable on our wedding day. They showed up earlier than expected, helped us get organized, and got us ahead of our timeline. They were amazing at directing everyone and perfectly understood our style and helped everyone have fun. When we got our photos back we couldn't wait to show everyone. The photos are better than I ever dreamt they could be. The only problem I have with them is that they took too many amazing photos that we are having trouble picking out what we want to frame! (haha!) We couldn't be happier about our choice. Do yourself a favor and look no further! You'll have the most amazing photos to look back on and relive your day over and over again.

  • We heard about how awesome Stephanie was through a friend. The first time we met I could instantly tell how extremely organized she was (made my teacher heart happy) and how passionate she was about her job. We had our first “photo shoot” experience with Stephanie for our engagement pictures and I couldn’t believe how fun and easy she made it. That’s when we knew we picked the perfect photographer! Stephanie and Charles are overall awesome, down to earth people that you want hanging around on your wedding day. The best part of all is they capture the most BEAUTIFUL photos/video that you will have for the rest of your life. Do yourself a favor and book them now because they are a hot commodity!!!

  • Stephanie photographed our engagement photos, my bridal portraits and our wedding in North Myrtle Beach, SC. She was amazing and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera, and all of our photos turned out beautifully! I've gotten so many compliments on my photos, specifically the color and how Stephanie edits them. :) Her photos are timeless and I'm so thankful to have found a photographer that can photograph all of our milestones in life - from babies to anniversaries! I would definitely recommend Stephanie and I personally can't wait to work with her again. :)

  • 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

  • Update: Stephanie is AMAZING. We were blown away by her photos. We've received so many compliments from family and friends about the photographs! Not only that, Stephanie helped make our day special. We got married in the midst of COVID madness, but Stephanie worked with us, even after a date and location change. She was professional and personable. I felt like I had a friend photographing me and helping along the way. I can't say enough good things about her! You will NOT be disappointed!! June 2019: 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!

  • Stephanie was the best photographer ever!! I was able to see her work through my brother's wedding the year before mine and both times were incredible! She makes taking the photos fun and efficient, but look amazing and natural. Her and her husband Charles are an awesome duo! Would recommend using Stephanie to EVERYONE getting married, you can't go wrong!!! I'm obsessed with ALL of our photos from the engagement shoot and the wedding!

    Oh Janel! Thank you so much for your sweet words! I'm OBSESSED with everything about your wedding and I feel so fortunate to have been picked by you guys! Thank you so much for trusting me with your wedding photos!

  • Stephanie and Charles are a talented photo/video power couple! I am waiting for the rest of the photos and video to come back, but if they are anything like the sneaks- OH MY GOSH! They have such an eye for detail and storytelling and it shows in all of their work. Stephanie is extremely organized, detailed, and FUN. They pretty much ran our wedding day and I loved every second of it. I am obsessed with her talent and I know you will be too. My favorite vendor from our wedding experience by far! THANK YOU SAPV!

  • 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!

  • When you plan a wedding, you’re drowned in images of beauty and perfection, and in the back of your mind you hope that you wind up with at least one or two images of yourself on your wedding day like that. Working with Stephanie provided us with an entire album of that kind of timeless elegance. She was extremely professional, while being personable; she posed us for the best angles and like while capturing our true personalities and genuine love. I cannot say enough good things about how happy were are with the result of our elopement photos and how much we truly cherish them.
