Love Notes

from past clients


Planning a wedding is no easy task! It takes so much time to plan and when the big day arrives, it comes and goes in the blink of an eye. That's why it's so important to have good photographers to capture the day and create memories to look back on. Stephanie and Chris captured our day perfectly. From day one, they were organized, friendly, professional and went out of their way to help us prepare for our day. They provided us with tools and guides that made us think about small details I would have never even thought of. They prepped hard so that during all the craziness that comes on a wedding day they didn't miss any of the details or photo opportunities that were important for us to have. Our photos came back right on time and were flawless - truly exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Stephanie Marie Photography to any bride or anyone looking to capture meaningful memories.


HIGHLY RECOMMEND: Stephanie and Chris did an amazing job as our photographers! Since the day we met them they were organized and able to answer our questions. We could tell they had genuine personalities and we were excited we chose them! They were flexible with our busy schedules when it came to our engagement pics. On the wedding day, they were able to work with what they got which was a little rain, a big wedding and wedding party, and limited time. They were able to stick to the timeline we created and take beautiful pictures! I received so many compliments on how hard our photographers were working throughout they day/night and even more after we got the pictures back!! Not only were the pictures stunning but after the wedding was over they continued to be amazing by sending us a wedding gift of a nice picture frame filled with some prints and a Christmas gift of chocolate and an ornament! Thank you two for capturing the moments from our big day!! So happy we picked you as our photographers :)


Stephanie and Chris went above and beyond throughout our whole experience with them. From amazing engagement photos all the way to receiving our photo album (and the surprise holiday gift). We can’t thank you both enough for making our photographer experience stress free along with amazing photographs to remember our day. We highly recommend Stephanie and Chris for anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Stephanie and Chris are exactly what my husband and I were dreaming, looking, and hoping for in photographers for our engagement and wedding photography. We were so lucky to have met them through their amazing work they had done for friends of ours. When looking at their photos, I was thinking, I have to have this photographer! The images were stunning and just my style. We knew immediately when meeting Stephanie for the first time that she was our girl! And, lucky us, we got Chris too!! From the start, they both made us feel completely at ease and excited about each detail of the wedding. Their organization, planning, work ethic, and attention to detail is top of the line.  Meeting to plan out details of the wedding agenda and working on the engagement session helped us learn more about each other and took away any anxiety we may have felt about the "Big Day". Their flexibility and openness to ideas and their ability to work creatively to plan together on a vision that meshed with ours was exactly what we hoped for. After the wedding was all said and done, I knew we were receiving the best of the best and more! I was surprised as to how quickly we were able look at a few "sneak peeks", and then the turn around to seeing our full sessions surpassed our expectations. We were surprised even more with a few other little treats that they had up their sleeve... surprises I won't give away, but so thoughtful and generous. All, just because they are so sweet and like to give so much. We cherish all of our photos and know we will get continued joy over the years. They were all SO good. Oh, and the compliments on our pictures just keep coming!! I can't say enough praise for Stephanie and Chris. They truly are a special couple that use their creativity, artistry, and love of working with other couples in love to give them exactly what they want!! We are "life-timers" of Stephanie Marie Photography. Can't wait to see what the future holds and the stunning images of our memories that Stephanie and Chris capture next! 


We are so thrilled with our wedding pictures! Stephanie and Chris are an absolute joy to work with and they made our wedding day pictures run smoothly and the pictures turned out beautiful!! we have so many pictures that are perfect that it is hard to choose our favorites! We had many people tell us that not only were Stephanie and Chris some of the most professional photographers they had interacted with at a wedding but that they had never seen anyone's wedding pictures turn out as great as ours! By far our best wedding vendor!!

I can't thank Stephanie & Chris enough for the beautiful photos and quality experience they provided. All through the process, Stephanie continued to send little gifts and encouragements. She even sent us an ornament for our first married Christmas. I'm thrilled with my pictures and I will definitely look to her for any pictures I need in the future.


We can't say enough good things about our experience with Chris and Stephanie! They were open to our Air Force base engagement session and absolutely knocked our photos out of the park. Our wedding photos turned out just the way we wanted too. Both kept the wedding party (and families) organized and on time which was a BIG deal to me because I get anxiety when things aren't going to plan or schedule. Chris and Stephanie were creative in their approach of photos and so easy to work with throughout the whole process. I would recommend this husband and wife team to anyone! We can't thank them enough for providing the perfect memories for one of our favorite days!

Stephanie and Chris were so great to work with! They took our wedding photos and did an amazing job! She helped make the schedule for the wedding day and she was on top of every little detail. She had so many creative poses and knew exactly what she was doing! She made sure to get the pictures that were important to me. We had such a great experience with Stephanie!!! I cannot say enough good things about SMP!


Stephanie and Chris did an absolute phenomenal job at our wedding! They captured every precious and loving moment and I would recommend them to anyone! If you are looking for a photography team that is genuinely passionate about what they do these are the people you want. They were so patient and kind. They really helped tremendously with our special wedding day! They are awesome to work with.

Stephanie and Chris are an amazing team. From day one, Stephanie was professional, prepared, and a pleasure to work with. She told us her background and experience, and had to photographs to prove it. The engagement session gave us a chance to work with her and Chris ahead of the wedding day, which was extremely helpful. She gave great direction (which we desperately needed) and the photos were fantastic! Leading up to the wedding, she made sure that we had everything planned so that we were ready to go and did not miss anything. Everything went incredibly smoothly and I honestly could not have been happier with how the photos turned out. Stephanie continued to work with us and communicate about our wedding book (also included!). I have since recommended her to several people and will continue to do so. We even hired her for our maternity photos and will soon ask her to shoot some pictures of our new family. I could not ask for a better photographer or a better team to document these important moments of our lives.


Immediately after meeting with Stephanie & Chris, we knew that we wanted them to photograph our wedding. Their genuine care of clients and passion for creating the best experience & photos truly showed throughout the entire process. Our engagement session was the perfect way to get to know them and they made posing feel natural. Stephanie was quick to respond to any questions and both her and Chris were very responsive to helping us navigate family dynamics for portraits, which put us at ease on our wedding day. They exceeded our expectations through it all and we cannot thank them enough for our beautiful photos that capture all the memories made during our big day!

Chris and Stephanie were amazing! This was my first time getting married or planning a wedding. There was a lot I didn’t know about the photography, but Stephanie was so great about helping me to understand the whole process and even helping me plan out the timeline for the day. They both always made me feel so beautiful and like we were the best couple they had ever photographed. I’ve never loved having my picture taken but Chris and Stephanie made me feel a model! I’m so grateful to them for making both my engagement and wedding photos so beautiful!
