I'm so happy I found Stephanie Smith to photograph our wedding! We were having a destination wedding, so I looked up a few photographers online and emailed the ones who had images I liked. One of them was Stephanie and I'm so glad I found her! She responded to my email right away and I decided to book her for our wedding. She was super flexible and since we were coming in from far away, she was happy to swap the engagement session that was part of our package to photograph at our rehearsal dinner instead. She was so great to work with on our wedding day! We had young kids in the wedding party and Stephanie knows just how to make them smile and laugh. She's also fast in getting photos back so you don't have to wait forever. I love the images she captured, they are natural and beautiful!
She also has a rescue dog, so I instantly knew that she was awesome!

Stephanie is absolutely incredible!

We came across her work online and met with her via Skype shortly after. Her positive energy and happiness are so contagious! We were instantly big fans, and we booked her for our wedding in New Jersey in October 2014. At first we were slightly hesitant about working with someone 10 states away, but Stephanie put us at ease. She made it so easy for us, it felt like she was local!

We can not say enough great things about her work. Stephanie is extraordinarily talented. Our wedding photos are so gorgeous, we could not be happier! Each of the photos she takes are so perfectly thought out and creative, they all look like art. She captured each of the moments of our day so beautifully. When my husband and I went through our photos, we could not stop smiling. There were some moments that she captured that we had forgotten about in the excitement of the day – thanks to Stephanie, we now have the memory!

Stephanie was more than a photographer. It was like I had another bridesmaid with me on my wedding day. She helped me pick jewelry, she made me laugh when I was about to cry, and she made everyone feel so comfortable and beautiful. Our friends and family loved her too. The amount of compliments that we got on our wedding day, and after we shared pictures, are uncountable. We feel lucky to have had Stephanie with us on our wedding day. We are so happy we had a chance to meet her, work with her, and build a long distance friendship with her.

Stephanie is bubbly, joyful, professional, talented, and warm. We would HIGHLY recommend Stephanie to any couple. It will be one of the best decisions you make while wedding planning!

Stephanie was absolutely amazing to work with from our first phone call to the day we received our CD with our wedding photos. She never pushed product or packages on us and was very upfront about her services. Her photos are FLAWLESS. The energy she brings to your special day is so unique and amazing! I feel so blessed that we were able to work with her and have such amazing photos to look back on. All my bridesmaids were like, "She is so amazing. Where did you find her? I want her to do my wedding!" Wedding photography IS an investment, but it is SO worth it!

Hopefully you haven't booked your photographer for your wedding yet, but if you have CANCEL THEM immediately. Stephanie truly made our wedding day special by capturing every moment and making it look like we belonged in a magazine. She was by far the easiest person we worked with throughout the planning and execution of our wedding. The pictures were turned around to us just a few weeks after our wedding - and we thought they were spectacular - even made my new wife cry a few times. On top of all of that - Stephanie helped catch my wife's grandmother as she fell on the dance floor, sacrificing her camera (which I can only assume is expensive) and having no though of her own well being. We cannot thank Stephanie enough for her professionalism and care!! We will definitely be using her again in the future.

I don't know how I can say enough positive things about Stephanie. Not only was she easy to work with, professional, and an EXCELLENT photographer...she quite literally saved my grandmother from falling on the floor (while sacrificing her camera in the process). It's just one more thing that goes to show what kind of person Stephanie is - wonderful, caring, and all around perfect as the hotographer of my wedding!

Stephanie is fabulous. She is very skilled at what she does and you can tell that she really loves her job. I met with her after searching online for photographers and her style and quality stood out to me. I immediately knew she was the photographer for us. She is super nice and laid back which is great because the "day of" is stressful enough and she was a calming presence. She shot our engagement and wedding photos and we had a great experience each time. I Love her style and her use of light and nature in all of her photos. Perfect photographer if you are having a Florida wedding. I can't wait to see all of my photos but my previews were fabulous. One of my friends just booked her for her wedding and I know she made the right choice too!

The first time I met Stephanie, I knew right away that she was going to make our wedding day even more special. I'm not the biggest fan of taking pictures, but Stephanie worked her magic and made every minute of it so much FUN! She's professional, hilarious, extraordinarily talented, sweet, and certainly knows how to make everyone look beautiful and natural. We had such a blast with her and even the bridal party didn't want the photo taking to end! We are beyond grateful to have the gorgeous pictures that she took to remind us of all the special memories made on our wedding day. They make us smile from ear to ear every time we look through them. I, without a doubt, highly recommend using Stephanie A. Smith Photography for your special day!
