"Stephanie photographed my wedding in September and far exceeded our expectations in every way possible. She was incredibly receptive to our wants and needs beforehand and was determined to give us exactly what we were looking for. I had heard so many stories about negative experiences with unpleasant wedding photographers, but Steph only added to the joy I experienced. Despite the madness of the day, she was unobtrusive but completely present the entire time (a skill all wedding photographers should have) and was sure to not take us away from our guests for an extended period of time. Her style and creative eye perfectly captured the energy and emotion we felt on our wedding day and made me feel like she really listened when we said we wanted to avoid looking cheesy or sappy. On top of her beautiful photos, she's just a super cool and kind person who I feel really lucky to have met. If I ever need anything photographed in the future, I will never work with anyone else!" -- Caroline + Cole

"Stephanie Smith photographed our engagement and wedding. I know that we will be asking her to photograph us for years to come--when our first baby is born in April, for example! Her work is fun and very unique--my husband and I, our friends and family love our photos. They are very atmospheric and don't feel hackneyed, sappy, or staged. (Although she did happily muscle through an incredibly long list of arranged family and friends shots that we requested, and they all turned out great!!) Everything we have printed has turned out beautifully. She is super generous with her time and her second shooter was great, too. Stephanie is a very friendly and kind person who really listens to and reponds to what you're looking for. She has always been exceptionally responsive and communicative with us, no matter how ridiculous our requests (turning around a B&W copy of a specific print for a thank you card in about 4 hrs., WHILE TRAVELING, for example!) I know I speak for my husband and myself when I say that we cannot wait to see the next batch of photos that Stephanie takes for us!" -- Samantha & Matt

"We were lucky enough to have Steph take our wedding photos. She came highly recommended by our venue. Steph is everything you would want in a wedding photographer. She is generous, patient, talented, smart, and fun. We met for a consulting session before the wedding where she thoroughly explained the process to both of us and our families. She listened to our vision and improved it. She gave us ideas and laid out the practical details of the day, which were very helpful. She gave us tips for the big day that we would have never otherwise thought about. She is also incredibly thoughtful, keeping a close eye on the weather. When it looked like it was going to rain on our wedding day, she sent us an email with a rain plan that would have made the rain more interesting in the pictures. On the wedding day, she arrived early and left late. She indulged our every spontaneous inspiration for group shots and made them more fun and visually refreshing. She is also incredibly mindful of social media sharing and provided teasers and pictures compatible with social media apps. The finished product was impressive and our favorite part about the photos is that they appear artistic without being abstract and they capture our important moments without being too cutesy or stiff. Steph excelled at striking the balance between art and traditional/stiff wedding photography. We are very impressed and can't recommend her enough." -- Jen & Patrick

"Stephanie photographed our city hall ceremony and, a year later, our wedding with family and friends. Her photographs bring us back and again and again to the wonderful feelings of those days, and we are forever grateful. Stephanie perfectly captured the magic and energy of all the people we love in the same space, sharing in a wonderful moment in our lives. There is an energy in her photographs that bring out the beauty in everyone and everything. Stephanie showed great care and attention to detail from the first moment she began working with us, finding out about the moments and elements of our events that were significant to us. This care continued through her gracious and calm presence at our events. We greatly enjoyed working with her, and we will be back!" -- Anna & Jonathan

"Stephanie photographed my husband and I on a short trip that we took to NYC in the fall. It was my dream to go to Bow Bridge in Central Park! Along with showing us all around Central Park and snapping pics of us the whole way, she was helpful, friendly, fun, and so very accommodating when it came to working around our schedule for our short two-day stay!
 She has a creative style and an eye for the what makes a great photo!.... She also really listened to what we wanted and gave us a product that was exactly that! Not only do I have amazing pictures from my autumn in NY trip, I was actually having a good time while she was taking them! She makes things fun, exciting, and memorable! Thank you so much Stephanie, for capturing what will forever be an amazing memory to us in our photographs!..... The extra large black and white canvas we bought will hang in my home until I'm old and gray.... Stephanie is amazing... just amazing!!!" --Mackenzie & Justin

“We love Steph Smith Photography & her photos! We recently had our wedding in September and our final photos are AMAZING - everyone loves them. We can't believe how lucky we are in finding her. From the very first email she was a pleasure to work with, quick to respond, willing to work with my terrible venue contact and totally delivered the final product on time and making them readily accessible. She had some unique ideas for shots I hadn't thought of and on the day was perfectly present but never in your face. She'll do whatever it takes to get a great shot - I remember her lying across the aisle to get the shot of our first kiss after our vows. She is truly an undiscovered gem. Thank you Stephanie - M&J” -- Mike & Jess

“Stephanie did an engagement photo shoot for my fiancee and I at our home and at the Bronx Zoo. Not only did the photos come out great, but she was a joy to work with the entire time and had some really fun ideas. The prints were high quality, and she was able to provide us with digital copies on a really short turnaround. She is also doing our wedding next year. Thanks Stephanie! M&S” -- Samantha & Matt

“Stephanie took our wedding photos for our September wedding. I love how her photos really captures the emotions and the excitement on our big day. She's really creative! The photos were delivered timely, and Stephanie's services were above and beyond.“ -- Jo & Andrew
