Stephanie did amazing work photographing our engagement shoot and wedding day. We had our engagement in Raleigh and wedding outside of Raleigh in Youngsville and she was accommodating to both locations. My husband (then fiancé) humorously opened with at the beginning of our engagement shoot that he hated taking pictures and she made him enjoy his time in front of the camera. She had conversations with us that made us both feel more comfortable with the camera and her, which made shooting on our wedding day feel as if we’d been friends for some time. Stephanie had many poses of her own (and snapped great candid shots!) and a great eye for backgrounds, but took pictures of any and every pose I requested for both our engagement and wedding. Stephanie and her assistant worked seamlessly with our videographer (separate vendor) that day as if they’d always been working together. The quality of her work is amazing! When you book Stephanie, you’re not only receiving quality photographs, you’re also receiving a kind individual with a beautiful personality. We would love to work with Stephanie again for any other occasion she’d shoot!
I could go on and on about how great Stephanie has been from the beginning, including our initial meeting (we felt like friends by the end!) and her beautiful work on our engagement photos. Instead, I'll talk about how she helped us through our COVID wedding. We changed our date, venue, and several other wedding details in response to coronavirus, and all at different points in time. I'd anticipated that Stephanie may not be able to accommodate all of our changes, but she was with us every step of the way while re-planning our wedding. We were amazed, and could not be more grateful for her understanding and flexibility. As if her beautiful photos aren't enough reason, she truly goes the extra mile for her clients, and we absolutely love her for it.
I couldn't have asked for a better wedding photographer. She took the time to get to know what the groom and I wanted and made sure to capture meaningful shots on our wedding day. She was courteous and worked well with the wedding party and family to make sure we stayed on schedule. I would highly recommended her to anyone looking for a photographer.
Stephanie was a dream to work with. As a couple who had no idea what types of photos we would want for our engagement and wedding, Stephanie stepped up to the plate and walked us through the entire process. She was incredibly responsive to our concerns and inquiries. I’d definitely recommend Stephanie Batten Photography to anyone!
