Hello there! I'm so happy you stopped by to look at our WeddingWire Storefront.

My name is Steph Bidelspach-Graves and I have a passion for photography - from weddings, engagement/couple sessions, to seniors, children/newborn, and more. I specialize in lifestyle photography and would be completely honored if you considered us for your big day! I've been a professional photographer since 2006 and have loved every minute of it. Not only does my profession allow me to meet wonderful people (like you!) but it's given me some amazing opportunities to travel and see places that I've never even heard of. For the past two years, I've had the joy of working with my husband - Patton - and together we are a tag team of photography excellence.

I started out doing senior portraits for my friends in high school and my passion for photography grew from there. I'm constantly evolving as a photographer - learning new techniques, coming up with crazy ideas and different angles to shoot from and more. We are most known for our dramatic and candid imagery. Sure, traditional poses are great - but they're exactly what they seem... posed. We capture the details, the good'ole times, the smiles, and even the tears to make your big day shine just as brightly thirty years down the line than it did on the day of your wedding.

You wedding is one-of-a-kind and is only there for a moment. We take so much pride in the fact that every wedding that we’re a part of is completely different from the last. We take the time to know our clients and that reflects in the way that we’re able to capture them. This also helps when we take their pictures - it's not some stranger behind a camera taking pictures of you... it's someone who you’ve gotten to know. This allows me to catch that subtle glimpse of a smile between you two that only happens when you're comfortable. Most of the time, my couples are so comfortable with us that it's like we’re not even around... it's just them. This is the way it should be - in my opinion.

We offer several all-inclusive wedding packages - starting at $1500. Our top end package is $7500 but it includes everything (except the kitchen sink) If you'd like I can build you a personalized package to suit your big day exactly. If you're interested and would like to know more, please feel free to check out our website or email us for our newest Wedding Issue e-magazine. We love to travel all over the US – some of our most recent destination weddings have been to Philadelphia PA and Jacksonville FL. We frequently travel down to Texas for our brides as well.

All sessions with Steph Bidelspach Photography include a password-protected online gallery, a one-on-one REVEAL session for you to come over and celebrate a successful and fun photo shoot or event, and a small, watermarked “teaser” album posted to our Steph Bidelspach Photography Facebook page as well as being featured on the SBP blog. As far as quality goes, we’ve paired up with some local and national vendors who are absolutely fantastic and offer the highest heirloom-quality items.

If you have any more questions, comments, or concerns, please don't be shy. You can reach us by email at info@stephbidelspachphotography.com or by phone at 405-355-3158. We will be happy to answer any thing you'd like. Our goal is to make your experience memorable - we go the extra mile and it's wonderful.

If something happens where I'm already booked on your wedding date I have several AMAZING photographers that I can refer you to, if you'd like.

We can't wait to hear from you!

Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
We do offer special services to our clients - many times we will edit the picture in such a way as to bring the most amount of life out of it.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. I'm always partial to natural light but over the years we have shot in all types of buildings, locations, etc.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital. If you are wanting film, I can definitely point you in the right direction as far as other photographers.
How many photographers do you work with?
I, Steph, am the main photographer of SBP and then my husband doubles as my assistant or second photographer when needed. We also have several professional photographers that we work with when the occasion arises.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes! Every event/wedding/session with SBP guarentees that I will be there photographing you in style.
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Sessions, yes. Weddings are one per day. We've only had one time where we've had two weddings in one weekend. Everything went off without a hitch.

What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?

60 days

We offer 3 different collections of albums:
 Coffee table albums, rustic, lay-flat wedding albums, and premium lay-flat albums with an acrylic image on front and bound with leather.
When will the client get the final album?
After our REVEAL session (where they pick out their images). After the album is built, and the proof is sent to the client for the final OK, it takes about 14-20 days for it to be sent to them.

Steph and her husband, Patton, travelled all the way from Oklahoma to Florida for our Jacksonville Zoo wedding. They both went above and beyond their duties the day before the wedding and day of! Steph helped keep me calm and was a great help during our rehearsal (any questions I had she readily had an answer to). The day of the wedding, Steph was open to any photo ideas my husband and I had and created the perfect first look moment for us. Our wedding party and parents all commented on how great they both were. The next day she posted a few teaser pictures for us on Facebook and I can’t even express how much we love them. I can’t wait to see the rest of our beautiful photos. Thank you so much Steph and Pat for making our wedding day perfect!

Steph and Patton were great at the reharsal and on the day of our wedding, they went above and beyond their duties on the day and were fantastic, even the reveal session went well. However after the reveal session I had problems contacting Steph and a delay getting my pictures, this was mainly due to her having problems with accessing online accounts and messages.
I have now received my pictures (they came out beautifully) and to make up for the problems Steph gave me extra disks of pictures for our parents.
If you choose Steph to photograph your wedding you will get beautiful pictures at a very good price and a photographer who will go above and beyond to make your planning and day go wonderfully, however be advised that if there are communication problems, snail mail may be the best way to contact her.
