Chris and I are so excited you were able to find us! We are a husband & wife wedding photography team based right here in Columbus, Ohio! We have a passion for wedding photography and a heart for serving our couples! It brings us so much joy to be apart of such an exciting time in our couple's life and to capture the love, the celebration, and all the beautiful moments that make up their wedding day!
We live by the mantra, "Two is much better than one!"... Or in other words, we work best when we're together! It's kinda how this soloist became a duo. Not only was Chris my biggest advocate when it came to my photography dream, but I found myself volunteering him to shoot along side of me all the time! We quickly realized that we made a terrific team and decided to join forces and start a new adventure as a photography team. And I have to say, it has been the best decision yet!!! I'm the creative and the posing perfectionist and he's the detail-oriented technical mastermind! We compliment each other's strengths and we push each other to be the best we can be...and together we create something wonderful and uniquely beautiful. We are both passionate about building relationships and capturing the love between our couples. After all, it’s your love for each other and the relationship that you share together that inspires us in everything we do!
Why Choose Us?
Well that is a VERY important question and one you should be asking any photographer you consider! Chances are, you probably have a couple photographers who’s work you absolutely adore. The problem is, there are a ton of great photographers in the Columbus area, but there is a distinct difference between being a great photographer and being a great wedding photographer.
Chris and I pride ourselves on providing unique experiences to each of our brides and walking them through all the planning that goes into getting those amazing pictures you see plastered all over Pinterest boards. Whether it’s picking the perfect place to get sunset pictures, figuring out how much time you need for portraits, or even receiving one-on-one coaching on posing techniques during your engagement shoot; Chris and I know there is much more work that goes into creating memorable wedding photography than just showing up 20 minutes before the wedding starts and snapping away.
Chris and I bundle our expertise, our creativity, and artistry with the knowledge that we gather from you to create a unique SMP wedding experience and we will work with you from the time you book with us until your final images are mailed out to make your wedding photography experience a success! We believe that it’s our jobs to give you images that you will cherish forever and an experience that you will remember for a lifetime.

What past Stephanie Marie Brides are saying about us
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!
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!
