Stephanie’s delivery of the final images were beautifully retouched and easily accessible adding to the overall professional service she provided to our special day. She absolutely nailed it getting images of everyone there, special moments and captured all the love throughout the ceremony and all the fun amongst the party too. She was a huge addition to making our day perfect.

Steph and Matt i could not be happier that i chose you both to be our photographers. Thank you so much for capturing our day…we are in love with the wedding photos, you made us feel special on the day, you both were so friendly, patient and professional. My family loved your style of taking pictures.
Steph is an amazing photographer/artist and a wonderfully passionate, talented and generous person. She truly captured the journey of our wedding day from start to finish and her story of our day made it all the more special. Steph became more then just our photographer, going above and beyond her call of duty, she was our guest and caring friend. Looking through our photos over and over again, Steph has been able to capture beautiful moments in time without us even knowing she was there and we cant thank her enough. Everyone that has seen our wedding photos absolutely loves them and we couldn’t possibly recommend Steph highly enough.

Working with Steph and Ebony was an absolute delight! They were both really friendly, very professional, with a calm and relaxed energy.

To my very talented photographers Stephanie & Ebony!
Words cannot even begin to describe how honoured and privileged we were to have you both photographer our special day. Not only did you capture the day beautifully, you also captured our entire love story, from our engagement, to my bridal lunch and some very special moments in between. You have filled our hearts with so much joy as we look back at all these photos and we truly can’t thank you BOTH enough! You are both incredibly talented, professional and loving. You supported Dom and I through the entire wedding process and were always prompt with emails, messages and phone calls ( even when I was annoying). Your photos speak for themselves and I couldn’t have chosen two more fun, creative and passionate photographers to work with. To say we LOVE the photos just isn’t enough. You took the time to get to know us as a couple and made us feel so incredibly comfortable. Our photos reflect who we are and how we felt on the day and I honestly will treasure them forever. You both did an AMAZING JOB!
Thank you dearly, FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS

So impressed Stephanie and Phil with your work on the day….from the beginning to end. And all the work you did after as well. We are so happy with what you have given us . The Abbotsford Covent gave such a nice backdrop for your pictures. You managed to capture individuals so true to form. It was great to have you part of our celebrations as well. Your work is so subtle, artistic, and the pictures are put together to tell such a nice story. A day to remember. And thanks for including little Allan our dog in your collection. Best wishes Martin and Michelle

Stephanie is so great to work with – a natural talent who clearly loves what she does and who has such a beautiful and natural eye. I just wish I’d known her sooner so she could have shot more of my life’s occasions!
Stephanie, the photos are amazing!
Philip and yourself did such a fantastic job capturing every little moment and really getting the atmosphere of the day on film. It was really such a pleasure having you there, you helped us feel so comfortable on our special day and it was nice to see your smiling faces here and there.

What people ask us “What to Look for In a Photographer”. We would like to try and answer this question.
The world of photography has evolved tremendously in the past few years. Just like any other field, photography has also benefited greatly from the recent innovations in technology. Professional photographers now use the latest HD cameras, powerful lenses, modern light equipment, as well as the latest software and other computer composing programs to produce results that can make anyone spell-bound. However, with all these technological innovations, the field of photography has also become very competitive and clients have become more demanding. Same way, the criterion for choosing a professional photographer to shoot your event has also changed in the ever-evolving photography world. Here is our advice on what to look for in a photographer in today’s technology-driven world:
What to Look for In a Photographer
The right answer to the question “what to look for in a photographer” will eventually depend on the photography niche you are interested in. If you are interested in hiring a photographer to shoot some pet photographs, you should prefer someone who knows how to properly connect and interact with animals, similarly for shooting a sports event; you need to look for someone who has expertise in motion photography, and so on. Keep in mind some of these qualities will overlap in some niches. That said; let us look at some top qualities that all top photographers share:
- An Actual Business
While anyone can shoot an event with the help of an auto-focus camera and display the pictures on their Facebook page, it does not mean that he/she is a professional photographer. If you are looking for quality professional work, you need to look for an experienced photographer with an actual business. This will not only reflect that the photographer is serious about his/her business, it will also put a certain level of accountability on his/her shoulders. Here is what to look for to find out whether the photographer has an actual business:
- a legitimate physical location – like a studio or storefront
- a professional website – displaying all the relevant information and portfolio of work as well as comments/feedback from the past clients
- credentials – relevant degrees, diploma certifications, memberships, rewards, achievements
Missing any one of these indicators does not reflect that the photographer does not have a legitimate business, missing all of them sure does.
- A Strong Portfolio
Before you make your final pick, you should look at the work done by the photographer in the past, and the only way to can do that is to check their portfolio. Most of the time, you will be able to find it on their website, however, if it is not there you can always ask the photographer to show his past relevant work in print form. Make sure to also read the comments shared by his/her past clients. Looking at the portfolio will definitely give you a good idea of his/her creative skills, originality, depth, diversity, and quality of finished work.
- Latest Gear
While it may not seem important from a client’s point of view to know exactly what photography equipment and gear the photographer is going to use, it is important for you to make sure the equipment he/she is using is up-to-date and will produce the results you are aiming for. Latest photography gears and programs have given the photographers the power and freedom to do things and achieve results that were impossible to achieve a few years back. In today’s technology-driven world, the abilities of photography equipment are as important as the skills and abilities of the photographer.
Passion is what that sets apart a good photographer from the rest. If you are passionate about what you do, it will surely reflect in your work. Going the extra mile and thinking outside the box to achieve extraordinary results is the main difference that separates a highly successful photographer from the average. A passionate photographer is able to find beauty everywhere and is able to channel it in the right direction. Passion is the driving force behind creating something unique and original.
- People Skills
The field of photography is all about working with people, whether it’s your assistant, clients, model, or a vendor. Photographers with good people skills are able to not only make a good name in the market; they are also able to attract more business. The ability to put people at ease while doing a photo shoot is key to the success of many top photographers. This is especially true when you are working as a wedding photographer or covering a corporate event, or even shooting a kids birthday party. If you are not able to connect and communicate well with your clients before, during, and after the shoot, you won’t be able to achieve the desired results.
There you have it, the answer to the typical question ‘what to look for in a photographer’, keep these points in mind next time you go out looking for a photographer to shoot your event.
