Most Popular Package?
Vermentino Package Full Day Coverage / 8hrs / Digital Only. With 8hrs coverage, you have me from getting ready shots to the first few dances in the evening. Your 8hrs is dedicated coverage - which means I don't deduct the duration of your wedding breakfast from your coverage. Your 8hrs is usually split 6hrs before meal / 2hrs after but is tailored to your own wedding timeline & what best suits your day. You also have the flexibility to add on extras - albums, fine art prints, frames and engagement sessions.
But I'm not good in front of the camera?
Every single couple you see in my portfolio says they aren't good in front of the camera. But that's the beauty of having a skilled photographer - my expertise means I tailor your couples photos to your personality, allowing you to be your authentic selves. As a candid wedding photographer, I'm great at blending in and keeping an eye out for the best, natural shots too. So don't worry, your day isn't full of posed, cringey photos!
How Many Images Do I get?
It depends on the package. But there's no upper limit - and typically for full day weddings I'm delivering 600/700 images. On the day I'm taking upwards of 3000 images across 2 cameras, and many of these may be duplicates or similar scenes so that I'm getting the best of people's expressions (shooting at 1/2000th second in bright summer sunshine, you're bound to get some blinking). Good images are never held back. Images with blinking, mid-expressions and other unflattering photos are rejected (we all take them, but we don't all need to see them :) )
What is a Wedding Day Like with You?
Relaxed & fun most of all. I arrive super organised, with your itemised timeline - knowing the names of your wedding party & family (it means I get the best candids) I'm super flexible and always helpful - ensuring everything is in the right place at the right time. I'll be blending in with the guests for great candids, or guiding you through specific shots like confetti or sparklers, and when it's just the 3 of us, it'll feel wildly romantic & spontaneous. No conveyor belt of photos that take hours here. You get to enjoy your party & be present in the moment.

"Absolutely incredible... Brides to be, I am telling you, you have to hire Stephanie as your wedding photographer. Stephanie was hands down one of the best people we worked with through the entire wedding process. The pictures she took were absolutely stunning, her ideas and creativity were top notch, and she was an absolute pleasure to work with!! She is EXTREMELY organized and responsive and was just so so easy to work with. We loved Stephanie so much and would hire her again for any photos in a heart beat."
"Perfect beyond belief... It's really hard to describe just how awesome Stephanie was. From our intial conversations over the phone to the wedding day she mind blowingly perfect! We didn't just get a great photographer in Stephanie it genuinely felt like having a life long friend at our wedding. From helping with shoelaces to herding unruly guests (in English and Deutsch) she was always there with a smile and when needed a stern command! We couldn't of asked for more from her. When we got the photos they were absolutely amazing! We haven't stopped looking at them. Stephanie really made our special day extra special. Cannot recommend her enough. Book her! You will NOT be disappointed."
"5 star photographer... we could not recommend Stephanie enough! She was such a wonderful photographer and brought the best vibes and created an amazing gallery for us to look at and remember our special day! Stephanie took time to get to know us and ensured that we were comfortable with the plan and shots we wanted. She visited the venue to suss our the best spots and made us feel incredibly special throughout the whole experience. When you book Steph, you certainly get a 5 star experience!
Could not have chosen a better wedding photographer! Having found Stephanie on Instagram, I knew I liked her style of photography however you also need to feel comfortable with your photographer. No worries at all here, from the very start with our pre wedding chats, Stephanie was warm but also laid back and easy going. She was also clearly very organised in the background with her prep work! I appreciated her having made a schedule for the day which she shared with us which just made things run calmer and smoother on such a hectic day. The weather was temperamental on our wedding day, being mostly drizzly with occasional bursts of sunshine but Stephanie was prepared and adaptable and knew what to do to still get us those wonderful wedding shots. We loved our photos when we got them, she's managed to capture such intimate moments while still being unintrusive! The variety of shots, knowing how to use our venue to it's full advantage, showing us guidance when taking our couple portraits, herding our guests especially during the confetti and group photo shots... I could keep going on. Thank you so much for photographing our day so beautifully!
We don’t have enough good words to say about Stephanie! From the get go, she was attentive, responsive and enthusiastic about our wedding. We had an engagement shoot about 3 months before the wedding to get to know her and we knew then that we had for sure made the right choice. On the day itself we had so much fun with Stephanie and she worked brilliantly with our videographer and all our guests on the day. We got very lucky with a beautifully sunny May day that made for incredible evening shots - literally couldn’t have planned it better. We will use Stephanie for any photos we need in the future. You won’t be disappointed with the level of service and professionalism you receive - she really is the best. Now that we’ve gushed about Stephanie - the photos surpassed all our expectations. We chose Stephanie as we loved how she worked with light, and our photos certainly didn’t disappoint. We couldn’t be any happier that we have these memories for a lifetime! Now we have to work out how we will choose only a handful to print and put up around our house - an almost impossible task as there are just too many good photos!
