You probably haven't worked with a professional photographer before, so let me give you a look at what it's gonna be like with me! I take on a limited amount of weddings each year so I am able to put my full heart and soul into every wedding I photograph. This means I'm fully devoted to you for the entire experience. I'm ready to answer any questions you have during the planning process with 7 years of experience to rely on for answers. I'm going to be present and prepared on your wedding day to capture you artfully and authentically.
I'm devoted to my art, but I value client experience over everything. I want you to go into your wedding day feeling 1000% confident I'm going to come through for you. So this means during the entire process leading up to your wedding I'm available. I want to hear about your dress shopping experience. I want to know what you are struggling with. I want to be there for you!
Spending time getting to know each other before the big day is essential because not only do I love to help you! It helps us get to know each other and build the trust that is essential to make you feel relaxed and capture those candid feel-something photos.
Prior to your wedding day I will send you my questionnaire that will help us work together to outline exactly how your day will be captured. That's where I'll get a family photo list from you. As well, it will give you the opportunity to share with me the special details you've poured your heart into to ensure I highlight everything that's important to you!
Feeling confident in your photographer is huge. I will do everything in my power to make sure you are feeling confident every step of the way. That starts by replying to your emails/texts/calls quickly because I would never want to keep you waiting and increase that wedding planning stress in any way. We are planning for the greatest day of your life! This is supposed to be fun!
As well, I back-up your images and then back-up my back-ups. Partway through your day (typically right around the reception time) I'll slip away and put all of your images on my laptop. So, even before I've left your wedding I have two copies of your images. Then, after I've captured your entire day, and my feet are completely exhausted, before I crawl into bed, I back your pictures up one last time on an external hard drive - there are 3 copies of your photos until date of delivery! So there is NO chance of losing the pictures from your best day.
"She went above and beyond for our wedding day. She was organized, hilarious and our photos are something we will cherish for a lifetime! She made sure we were relaxed in front of the camera, so our photos didn’t feel awkward. They were all so natural and beautiful! It’s hard to pick our favorites when they are all so perfect! We couldn’t recommend her more! If you want someone who is passionate about what they do and equally as passionate about you and what you need for your session Stephanie Victoria Photography is the best!"
Stephanie is truly AMAZING! She is so fun and lovely to be around which makes the experience just that much more enjoyable. We had a blast with her during our engagement session, and she fit right in with our family and friends on our wedding day. She caught so many memorable moments and details that I didn't even realize she captured until we went through our wedding album. She also somehow made us look like models in all of our photos which says a lot since we are not photogenic at all. I can't recommend her enough!
Stephanie was a dream to work with, helpful throughout the whole process, flexible and supportive during our big day, and delivered incredible photos. We cannot say enough positive things about Stephanie and her work!! Thank you so much!
