I was born and raised in Europe. My family and I came to the U.S. ten years ago. Next to taking pictures, I love hiking, biking and playing tennis. My favorite tea is Chai Tea Latte and there is no day without chocolate. I believe dogs are really humans and that everything happens for a reason.

Photography has always been my passion and a perfect way to express the way I look at life. I was professionally trained in Europe, I worked and traveled the world as a photojournalist, event and wedding photographer. My camera is a mirror, capturing emotions and special moments to relive them for years to come. A way to look at the world. You can find beauty in everything and everyone.

During my 20 year career, I was privileged to photograph a wide range of diverse personalities. From street musicians to CEO's. Scientists to Beauty Queens, Politicians to Models. But nothing compares to a wedding day. Picturing the love and emotions between two people is fascinating. It is very special to me and I love every single part of it.

You can see my work published in Germany, Switzerland, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain, France, and the U.S.

Please feel free to call or email at any time. I am looking forward to meet you.

Stefy is incredibly talented with a unique and original eye and understanding of both photography and people. I looked everywhere before choosing her and I am so very glad I did. She has a huge talent for getting an interesting composition and taking photos that tell a story. She took a lot of time to find out about me and my husband and what we wanted and who were were as a couple so she could let that inform her process and create a really personal and lovely shoot for us the day of wedding (and engagement shoot too!). She was also so kind and sweet and easy to get a long with, everyone who met her loved her. She went above and beyond our expectations at every turn. I can't recommend her highly enough!

My husband and I instantly connected the first time we spoke with Stefy. From the that first conversation, to the engagement photo shoot to our wedding day - she was there for us to provide anything we needed. Her passion and talent for photography shines through the incredible work she produces. We could not be more thrilled to have had Stefy and her team capture every moment of this very special time in our lives. She and her team were fantastic to work with - so personable, professional, talented and always willing to do whatever it took to get the perfect shot. I have been to several weddings and have never seen photographers so excited about the perfect lighting or the perfect setting. Their energy was contagious and would I highly recommend to anyone and everyone!

Stefy was such a joy to work with and we are so glad that we got to work with her during our wedding events. She came highly recommended by one of my personal friends so we met with her along with several other highly reviewed photographers. We clicked with her immediately and it was one of the easiest decisions that we made during our wedding planning. Once we started working with her we knew we made the right decision. We liked her so much we ended up using her for the bridal shower and rehearsal dinner along with the engagement photos and of course the wedding day. All of the photos came out great. She really goes above and beyond the typical photographer. I look forward to continuing to work with her in the years to come.

My wife and I are very happy that Stefy was our wedding photographer. Between our relaxed engagement photos and our very sharp wedding photos we have tons of great images surrounding our wedding. Stefy really made a point to get to know us before our wedding and that proved to be very valuable on the day. Stefy and her team were with us for every step of our wedding day, yet were unobtrusive. Stefy got some real creative shots and used a nice variety of lenses to mix up the feel which I appreciated.

It was a pleasure to work with Stefy. My wife and I are not ones that love posing for pictures, nor value the time to take them, but Stefy was great at pushing us to get the best shots to make our day memorable and now, of course, we look at them everyday. From the first time we met Stefy we knew that we wanted to work with her. Her perspective towards the overall wedding experience, friendly nature and the the samples she provided were our exact style and we were very pleased with how it turned out. From the original meeting to the constant communication and post wedding catch-up, all of our interactions were fantastic. I would highly recommend Stefy to anyone who needs a professional photographer.

A review for my wedding photographer, Stefy Hilmer, is so filled with personal feelings, not because I liked her, although it was obvious immediately over the telephone that I would, but because I had so much added stress and mixed emotions about planning an ever continuously postponed wedding in 3 weeks.

Stefy was my focus in "can do" optimism beyond a photographer's call of duty. Or maybe that is an excellent photographer's trade secret to ensure optimal photo sessions with her clients. Regardless, she is exactly what I needed at the moment. Heart-fully, Stefy drew into my vision, our personalities and observed our photographic strengths (contrarily, I had a lazy eye due to migraine treatment and Sal made it obvious he would have rather been on the couch watching football). She is also well versed in a diversity of venues that captured the essence of our courtship.

Stefy arrived packed with her equipment and already scouting the venues for optimal photographs and creative suggestion while considering our comfort zones. She also had spoken with me (and my fiance) to get a most genuine feel of our visions. She seems to love her craft and found each moment and nuance of a photo shoot to be an opportunity for us to portray our love and commitment to one another. Although I have seen the use of detail, subject matter and lighting in magazines, I never imagined that was for hire in my real world. Our photos are amazing.

Stefy also comes packed with other vendor recommendations, IF you ask. (Understandably, some not available on such short notice.)

Finding Stefy was such a gift! It was daunting to find vendors and help for our wedding, and immediately after the first conversation I knew she was the one to capture our wedding day. She was helpful, calming, personable and very responsive in the planning process. On the day of, she kept to our agreements and made sure we got the shots we requested. She stayed through the event and captured everything!! There was a picture that someone else took and she was in the background smiling. She truly cared and enjoyed her job. You can't ask for anything more. I highly recommend using her.
