SDK Photo & Design (Stephanie D Kleinman)
When it came time to selecting a photographer for our wedding, Stephanie was an easy choice. Not only has she photographed various events for several of our friends (and therefore came highly recommended), her work is outstanding and stands on its own. I was drawn to her clean, fresh, modern, natural look/feel, as well as her laid back, yet professional approach. She is extremely easy to work with and accommodating. She truly captured the relaxed, warm, intimate, loving vibe that we hoped to create at our wedding. Tons of our friends and family have commented on how fabulous her work is and how they were really able to re-live the entire wedding by looking at our pictures. I was thrilled with the job that she did -- everyone and everything looks simply stunning in the photos. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend Stephanie for your next event!
Our wedding was such an amazing night, but as everyone warned us, it was over in a blink of an eye! Stephanie, however, did a wonderful job capturing all those moments we wish we could have prolonged as well as all the moments we missed! The day was so full of love and emotion, and that certainly shone through the photographs. Also, we should mention that both of us are very uncomfortable with taking pictures and being the center of attention, but with Stephanie, it was a non-issue. She was such a calming presence, and took control but was not overbearing for a second. And with a wedding party of 17 people (!), things can get overwhelming and hectic. We appreciated Stephanie's ability to keep everyone relaxed and composed. She took the most beautiful photos- staged and candid, classic and creative. She is incredibly talented! It was an absolute dream having SDK Photo & Design document such a special day for us and our families!
Where do I begin? From the moment I contacted Stephanie at SDK Photography I knew it was right. She was professional, but super fun and awesome at the same time! She worked with us to create a package that made sense for us and the outcome was amazing! Our engagement photos made us feel like the most beautiful people because the SDK really knew what was best - they made us feel comfortable and releaxed. When it came time for the wedding, the results were the same - comfortable, easy and beautiful photos as a result! People have told us they have never seen more amazing shots. If you want someone that cares about you, is fun to work with and want amazing photos to look at for the rest of your life - go with SDK!
Stephanie is AMAZING! She is so creative and so easy to work with. From our first meeting, to our engagement session, to our wedding day, and now to putting together our album, she was and is very attentive to detail and so easy to work with! The colors of her photos are fantastic and she did a wonderful job telling our wedding day story through her photos. I highly recommend Stephanie and SDK Photo! I will definitely be using her in the future!!!
Stephanie was amazing to work with. You deal with her directly - her direct e-mail and phone - and she gets back to you very quickly. She shot our wedding in March 2011, and there literally wasn't one bad picture. She managed to be everywhere at once, and caught every important moment, big and small. She shot a combination of semi-posed pictures and candid shots and every photo is frame worthy. I recommend SDK Photo and Design without hesitation!
Stephanie Kleinman photographed my wedding at a vineyard in Santa Ynez on October 3, 2009 as well as my bridal shower and rehearsal dinner. Stephanie was absolutely wonderful to work with and the pictures were absolutely beautiful. She captured my husband and me and our families at all the perfect moments and made us look good. I have referred so many of my friends to Stephanie and no one has been disappointed. On top of being artistic, the unique attribute Stephanie brings to any event is that she is easy to be around, makes friends with your guests and understands how special each event is. She makes you comfortable immediately which makes you want her around when you are getting ready with your bridesmaids or having your first dance. I cannot say enough good things!! Enjoy!
Choosing SDK Photography was - by far - the best decision we made regarding our daughter's wedding. Stephanie"s care and concern for the bride and groom were evident from the start. She met with us prior to the wedding to review the reception venue. We shared with her the images we hoped she could capture ..... and she did! She went, however, way beyond what we imagined could be possible!
Every important aspect of the ceremony and the reception were beautifully shot. We dont know how she got so many wonderful shots because she was so unobtrusive. Stephanie's photos reflected the reverance, love, joy and promise we felt were present that day. I didn't think it possible that those sentiments could ever be preserved so beautifully through photography.
One final note: the day of the wedding, we received more compliments on Stephanie than we did on the flowers! Our guests commented on Stephanie's gracefulness and graciousness.
To us, Stephanie was the consummate profession: respectful, skilled; generous with her time and talent.
We just could not be more thrilled with Stephanie and her work.
SDK Photo did an amazing job on the day of our wedding. Stephanie captured our moments so beautifully, and she brings an authenticity to her work that is rare to find in professional photographers. Stephanie was really great to work with and was very professional. We love her aesthetic and approach to her work. The photographs were retouched and edited so well, too. She also designed our wedding invitations. We can't recommend SDK Photo enough!
Stephanie's gorgeous photos speak for themselves! She took pictures at our rehearsal dinner and wedding 7 years ago and all of the photos were fantastic. One in particular was phenomenal and is proudly displayed in our dining room, and we continue to get amazing compliments from everyone who sees it. We look forward to having Stephanie photograph other occasions in the future.
Fabulous eye! We have worked with Stephanie and used her personally! She does great work and is a pleasure to work with! I cannot say enough great things about SDK.
Stephanie and I did a wedding together in 10/10, and she was wonderful to work with, and you can see the results in her pictures.
We offer modern lifestyle photography for all of your big (and little) events as well as custom graphic design services to turn your photos into beautiful heirlooms.
I adore being able to capture the moments of excitement, romance, laughter, and love between two people. From engagement photos to showers to weddings and everything in-between, before and after, I get to know the personalities and passions of the couples I work with. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to take part in these important milestones in your life and strive to get to know your guests, friends and families so that I can blend in and witness all of the most special moments as they do."
