  • Words can't describe how amazing Stephanie and Charles are. They are truly masters at their craft and their work is a testament of that. From our initial consult with Stephanie in March 2019, she was so professional and dedicated to giving us exactly what we wanted. We knew she was the one and immediately swooped her up for our engagement photos and wedding day! We did our engagement photos with her in August 2019 and I was so impressed. Weather was an issue that day, but it was not an issue at all for Stephanie. With the bat of an eye, she reworked a plan for us, navigating weather conditions, and our photos came out to be a DREAM. Flash forward to our September 2020 wedding amidst all the craziness of COVID-19, Stephanie and Charles made our day absolutely perfect. They were so fun to work with, capturing all the big and small details beautifully, as well as working with our larger families and wedding party. We have only gotten our preview, but we are already in love with how the ph... Read more

  • 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!!!

  • 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

  • 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!

  • 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.

  • Wow! Where to even start… Steph’s photos are AMAZING and she is truly an extraordinary photographer. This was the most stressful part of wedding planning for me, as I am so picky and my (now) husband and I are not very photogenic, so finding someone who could make us look great and take great photos that would be “forever photos” was hard, but Steph did not disappoint one bit! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and they were so stunning. I got SO MANY compliments on them and tons of questions about how they can book her. She made taking pictures so fun and was able to easily figure out what we liked and didn’t like in order to get all the shots we wanted. Spending my entire wedding day with her and Charles was SO much fun and I am so thankful that I chose her to surround myself with on that day. She worked so hard and got so many amazing pictures that are well above magazine quality. She’s so fun to work with, professional, and truly cares about your wedding and... Read more

  • 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.
