stephanie is the photographer you want to trust with all of your most important moments. of all my wedding vendors so far, she is the most reliable, easy to work with, and her talent is incomparable. i initially chose her because of the realness of her photographs and her instincts in picking the right moments. through working with her on our engagement session, i now can vouch that she brings the same integrity and naturalness to all aspects of a shoot. she will be early, prepared, comfortable to be around, and will create unbelievable works of art while effortlessly conducting the shoot. i couldn't be more impressed with our experience and feel our pictures came out better than we could have imagined because of how comfortable she was to work with and how naturally talented she is.
in the editing process, she is prompt, communicative, and again, talented. she puts a level of personal investment into her work that is rare to come by. after our first shoot, i am more at ease about our wedding day because i know it will go so smoothly in this very important aspect.
if you are having professional pictures taken, you already know the value of documenting the moments in our lives - stephanie is the best choice you can make to ensure you have a great experience and walk away with photos you will truly be wowed by and treasure forever.
Amazing. She is incredible at capturing beautiful moments. So great with candid shots and making the cheesy ones look candid! Not only that, but Steph is someone you want around you on your special day and throughout the entire process as she is so sweet and calming. You will not regret choosing Steph, that is a guarantee!
When choosing a photographer for the most important day of your life, do not skimp or search based on price! Stephanie is the absolute best. On her website she states that she will be like your extra bridesmaid.. more like matron of honor. From the pre wedding day planning all the way to the editing of our photos after the wedding, she went above and beyond the call of your usual wedding photographer. I was a ball of stress the morning of my big day but i felt a sense of complete ease having her and her assistant Madison there from the moment they walked in the door. All my girls and i felt very comfortable and went about the morning getting ready while she and Madison staged the rings, dress, flowers, ect. to photograph as well as took lots of candids of us. She is extremely professional and works well with other vendors including our videographer. My father-in-law was very skeptical of her because she didn't bring a second shooter, but by the end of the night he couldn't stop raving about how impressed he was with her! She even sent us a handful of photos as a sneak peak THE DAY AFTER!! We really couldn't have asked for a better photographer!! Thank you Stephanie!!
I cannot express enough how please I am with Stephanie Lynn's work. I have watched her photography for years now and when it came time to plan my wedding there was not a doubt in my mind who would be our photographer, even if we had to fly the girl in! It's such an important detail and one that should not be taken lightly. I even had to switch wedding vendors half way through planning because they required I use their own photographer and that was unacceptable. She is worth every penny. I have done my homework and I have seen and heard so many nightmares. From cheesy poses to photographers losing the pictures even one that was a "great deal" and they never gave the wedding pictures to my friend. After 6 months of chasing down the photographer she gave up. You get what you pay for and I have absolutely zero concerns with Stephanie. I trusted her direction and every picture she took honestly captures the moment. She does amazing work and I look at the pictures daily. Some of the pictures taken at the spa were even used by the spa because they were so stunning. I have no doubt in my mind that Stephanie will be our photographer for our pregnancy pictures, newborn, family photos and every other major life event. I feel so blessed to be able to have her there that day and I highly recommend her to capture all of your special moments.
When Jason and I started planning our wedding, fortunately we agreed on pretty much everything in terms of our vision for the day. One of the things we knew was most important to us was the photography. Everyone kept telling us things like, "Your wedding day will go by so fast! Try to remember everything!" We knew that would be nearly impossible, so we wanted to catch all of those special moments on film. After digging deep into the internet, searching for photographers that could provide us with high-quality photos within our budget, we realized that we never needed an internet search, the answer was right in front of us! Over an evening of tacos & margaritas, one of Jason's groomsmen suggested his good friend, Stephanie Lynn. Immediately we knew she was the right choice because her photos are ammaazzzing and we knew Jason's groomsman would never steer us in the wrong direction. Throughout the whole process, Stephanie made us feel so comfortable. She took a great deal of stress out of the all the craziness of wedding planning. Especially on the day of the wedding, it felt really good to have someone around who we knew we could trust to capture everything we wanted and help us remember all of the special moments. Five stars! Thank you for everything, Stephanie!
I love taking pictures, it is one of my favorite things to do. If I could hire Stephanie to follow me around all of the time; I would! My whole experience with Stephanie photographing our wedding was first class. First let me start with our engagement photos. I wanted to go to a few different locations all over south Miami and she was more than willing to travel around with us all morning / afternoon. I had a list of pictures I wanted to capture and she got all of them plus additional ones that she came up with. I loved the way our photos turned out. Our wedding was at 11AM on a Sunday morning and I wanted to do pictures on-site with my fiancé prior to the wedding. I asked Stephanie to be in our hotel suite by 7 to get the “getting ready shots” and she arrived about 30 minutes early. I was very impressed, vendors very rarely come early- but I was up and ready to go, so it was perfect. She made sure to get all of the detail shots that I wanted, plus many more. I hosted a breakfast in the living room of our suite while we were getting ready and she handled bouncing back and forth perfectly. Nothing was missed. We left the hotel suite to head to the ceremony location around 9AM. The ceremony started at 11. In those 2 hours we were able to take so many different amazing photos. We went to the beach (wedding was in a large park that has many different locations), we went in the water, and we put on rain boots and stomped through puddles, we climbed hills, lol It was a blast. Once we got to the actual ceremony spot Stephanie was able get a ton of family shots that I wanted. It was not easy- we have family members who are divorced and don’t really like being around each other and Stephanie was able to diplomatically get everyone where she needed them to capture the shots I wanted. The ceremony pictures turned out perfect as well. After the ceremony I wanted a group shot in a heart shape- it turned out great. Exactly as I envisioned. The rest of the day followed the same suite. I think that my husband and I spent more time that day with Stephanie than any wedding guest. We did a brunch that afternoon and again, Stephanie was able to capture every important moment. She even came back to our room with us at the end of the day and jumped in bed with us! For a photo of course. Since I am a photo fanatic of course I wanted to do a trash the dress shoot. So a few months later when I asked Stephanie to do an underwater photo session she was up for the challenge. We met at the beach for sunrise. Took some really cool photos, than off to the lake we went. After swimming in a lake with us, we went to the pool. What a blast. Steph is amazing. She made our wedding even more perfect than I could have ever imagined. Thank you Steph! We love you and cannot wait to have you capture more of our life events!
My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity of working with Stephanie for our wedding in March. Stephanie was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning. Her responses were prompt and she was flexible in regard to our initial meeting time and place. When we did meet, she was incredibly personable and easy to talk to -- a friend from the beginning. Stephanie is an intuitive artist who has the ability to grasp a person's personality right away. She listened to what I wanted and made some suggestions and the end results were perfect. Although Stephanie and my husband were unable to meet until the day of the wedding, this did not interfere with her understanding of our personalities and our vision. She captured our special day beautifully and we were so happy to have the chance to work with her. We would wholeheartedly recommend Stephanie to anyone who appreciates art and wants this to shine through in their photos. Thanks again, Stephanie! I just wish we didn't live so far away from each other!
I use to be an event manager and have done hundreds of wedding and dealt with all the supporting staff. Stephanie Warga is better than them all by far. She is patient, accommodating and professional all the way. There's no pre Madonna crap here! Her natural skill for photography comes shinning through in her work. I would use her again And recommend her over all the other photographers I've worked with. -A
Steph was very attentive, patient and fun to work with. She listened to our ideas, gave us feedback and came up with some insightful ways to commemorate our special day. Her genuine love of photography shows through all of her work. I remember getting worried when my bridal boquet began to wilt during the shoot. She quickly rearranged the flowers, pulled out the duds, rewrapped the ribbon and showed me how to perfectly pose so that nobody would know that my overpriced boquet was dying. The best thing about working with her was how special she made us feel. We can't wait to shoot with her again! -K
Stephanie made me feel at ease on the big day! I really didn't want a lot of posed pictures and she gently guided me to get a few, but never pressured me. My pictures are stunning! She captured so many personal and sweet moments (my sister and I dancing, the groom lighting up during his brother's speech.) I would highly recommend Steph Lynn Photo for any special occasion. -R
Steph shot my engagement session, and did such a great job that my partner and I convinced her to do our wedding as well. We flew her out to Maui to capture our destination wedding. The photos are perfect, and Steph is awesome. She managed to capture gorgeous moments during the ceremony, while somehow being invisible. Afterwards, she was great at corralling people into the various group shots we wanted, and was patient with our ridiculous requests. I would not hesitate to recommend Steph for any of your photography needs. -M
Stephanie was AMAZING!! She did our Baby Bump and New Born Photos and all I can say is that she was simply one of the most patient people I have ever worked with. Working with a baby was difficult as the baby cried and fuss a lot but she just went with the flow and did not rush thru the process at all, which was a breath of fresh air. Stephanie was kind and so open to all of our ideas. =) The pictures came out unbelievably amazing, out of this world!! She had such great ideas and saw beauty where we could not! it was truly an honor and will most definitely have her do more pictures for us in the future. I will recommend her to everybody.
I hired Steph Lynn Photo for a fundraiser at my children's school and was blown away by her work. She was patient with each child and the children absolutely loved her!! She was the easiest photographer I have ever dealt with on a business level. When the pictures were ready for viewing after she edited them, all of the parents were so in love with each picture that they bought all of the pictures!!! I highly recommend STEPH LYNN PHOTO for all of your photo needs. Thank you again and we can't wait to use you again next year at the school...and for my own personal family photos!!!
Stephanie goes above and beyond with her photography and professionalism. We recently did a maternity shoot, and she was so creative!!! She was also really patient and warm with our toddler and really went out of her way to make her feel special which really meant a lot to us. Stephanie was so easy to work with and again went out of her way to make sure our pics would be what we wanted. She exceeded our expectations (which were already high) in every way, and we will definitely be using her again for our newborn pictures! I highly recommend her, and have been encouraging my friends to use her as well! Have fun : )
We are from PA and had a family vacation in ft Lauderdale. My wife and I wanted to have some photos taken on the beach with our family. I found Stephanie through yelp and decided to reach out to her. She was awesome! From prompt communication to a great photo shoot, she did an outstanding job. We didn't have the best conditions, as there was a lot of wind on the beach that day. However, Stephanie was able to get some amazing pictures. We were pleasantly surprised with the final product. I would definitely recommend her for any photo shoot.
I had bought some of Stephanie's photos from her Etsy store over the years and was very excited to hear she was coming to the Bay Area last year. I booked her right away to take pictures of my year old granddaughter.
My shy granddaughter took to her right away, and so did my dog. Stephanie arrived to my home on time and took some prep photos of Holly and my pets. Then we went to the park with a variety of outfits and props. It seemed like Stephanie took hundreds of photos and never tired of following Holly around taking candid pictures of her and my daughter.
I knew she was just staying in the area with friends so I wasn't expecting to see any pictures until she went home to Florida, but photos started trickling in that very night. The photos she gave us are gorgeous and bring tears to my eyes. A couple months before she came I had taken my daughter to Sears for portraits; they went out of business a couple weeks later taking our pictures and my money with them. As awful as that was, I don't miss those pictures at all now that I have my photos from Stephanie. What she gave us weren't simple portraits, they are family heirlooms. I will cherish them forever. She is worth every single penny and more.
