I could not have asked for anything more out of Stephanie. I was a photographer for 8 years so my biggest challenge was finding a photographer that understood my ideas. And finding a great photographer was even more of a challenge. I am a very detail oriented person and having Stephanie as our photographer was the best decision I could have made for our wedding. She listened to everything I asked and went above and beyond my expectations. My bridal party even fell in love with her and kept asking where we found her. I told her to be creative, think and do anything outside the box and she did exactly that. I would not have changed one thing about choosing her and I would highly recommend her.
Stephanie is one of the best out there! I would recommend her to anyone. Our pictures could not have been better. I spent months searching for the perfect person to capture our wedding day and on a whim I ventured out to her studio. It was the best decision I made throughout my entire wedding! Our pictures were in the middle of the woods and she got the most magical pictures I've ever seen. It was like she could see what I had been envisioning all along! I'm not exagerating at all; she is that DAMN good! She is detail oriented and captures all the romantic and candid moments that you will want to remember forever. Thank you so much Stephanie!!! Look forward to using your photography in the future.....

Stephanie, with Lady of the Lens, captured such incredible moments. When scanning through the pictures, it is like we are reliving our wedding all over again. She had everything from traditional shots, fun and creative shots all the way to what I loved the most: the candid shots of Joe and I, our family and friends.
All the moments that my husband and I missed while running around, she captured. They are so beautiful, creative and she was incredibly easy to work with. She listened to me, but still pulled in her professional knowledge and made our day even more magical. Looking back on our pictures, I wouldn't even hesitate to book her again. I couldn't have imagined a better photographer -- so professional AND fun. We will happily use Stephanie again for future photography.
If I were you, and you were looking for a photographer, I'd book her...TODAY. Thank you so much, Lady of the Lens! You made our day so, so, special!!!
Lady of the Lens was really fun and easy to work with! Stephanie was able to meet the needs of my special day, travel, and go beyond to get the best photos. Her artistic approach allows her to capture awesome pictures! Thanks for a really great day!
Stephanie was great to work with on our big day. She was very relaxed and had a lot of fun with our wedding party which in turn made me more calm throughout the day. Everything I asked for, Stephanie did. Her second shooter was equally as amazing. I would recommend her hands down!
For our wedding, one of my highest priorities was to have a great photographer. I wanted someone who could deliver everything that I wanted, and I wasn’t willing to sacrifice anything for our photographs. I did a lot of research and selected Lady of the Lens Photography. Stephanie really stood out to me, and was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. Not only did she meet all of my criteria, she completely exceeded my expectations. She was absolutely wonderful and our photographs are AMAZING!
I wanted a photographer that had a unique style. Stephanie has a background in photojournalism, and her photos are unlike most that I’ve seen. We wanted some formal posed shots, but she captured most of our photos spontaneously. When viewing our photos, it really is like reading a story, and reliving every moment of that day. Unfortunately, a lot of our wedding guests got stuck in traffic coming to our wedding, and they missed our ceremony. Luckily, Stephanie took such great shots and was able to capture every special moment. When these guests viewed our ceremony photos, they were so pleased because they were able to experience those moments like they had actually been there.
Stephanie had the amazing ability to capture the feeling, romance and emotion of our wedding in our photos. Shooting in the photojournalistic style required her to have excellent timing and a good eye for lighting and composition. Stephanie had great attention for detail and was extremely creative. I was also very impressed with her editing skills. The quality of our retouched photos is absolutely flawless.
Lady of the Lens was surprisingly affordable. Compared to the other high-end photographers that I considered, Stephanie’s base package price was very inexpensive. She had features added into the price that weren’t offered by her competitors. The base package includes unlimited locations and full day coverage. Stephanie’s base package also includes a lighting assistant and second shooter. The second shooter really made a difference with our photos, and I’m so glad she was there. She was able to capture a lot of shots that would have been missed with only one photographer.
I consider myself to be an extremely organized person, and I really appreciated when my wedding vendors were the same way. Stephanie was great in this aspect. She was always prompt to respond to my questions. She emailed me information and guidance around 9 months before our wedding. This gave me plenty of time to review the info and start planning in advance. She sent me suggestions and tips for our photos (many of which I didn’t even think about!). She also sent me forms for our shot list and schedule. Our wedding day was so fast-paced and busy, so it was nice having everything organized and determined beforehand. Stephanie knew EVERYTHING that I wanted for our wedding in advance, so I didn’t have to worry that she would miss something that day.
Stephanie is a remarkably talented photographer. She is highly professional and is really good at what she does. She specializes in wedding photography, and her love for weddings really comes through in the photographs. We have a collection of beautiful, unique photos that perfectly capture our special day. I really enjoyed working with Stephanie and it was one of best decisions I made for our wedding. I am so glad that we used Lady of the Lens Photography!!!
We loved having Lady of the Lens be there to document our special day with us! Stephanie is so professional and made sure to capture each moment of our day. Her work is amazing and I would recommend her in a heartbeat. Because of Lady of the Lens, we have such special pictures of our day that we will treasure forever. Everyone has been so impressed with what we've shown them. Depending on your price range may be on the expensive side, but worth every penny!
Photography was probably the most important aspect of my wedding day as the pictures last forever so I took it pretty seriously to find the best photographer for the best value around! I did phone interviews with probably 15 photographers in the Pittsburgh area (as I am not from there so had no guidance at all!) and she stood out to me. She was REAL--not trying to sell anything and really took her time getting to know more about me, my style, and what I was looking for in my wedding day photography. She offers several packages with different price points so you can customize your package to fit your specific needs which was awesome. She was also always really quick to get back to you via email or text and willing to meet as well to discuss anything. We got our engagement pictures with her (as part of the package) and they were AWESOME. She did such a great job and that made me feel even more comfortable with her for the wedding day as everyone loved the pictures (we used them for our save the dates). She was so organized prior to the wedding as well in terms of getting to know the schedule, venue, family members, who is who, what was most important to me, etc and that made me feel very comfortable with her. She arrived on time and prepared wedding day and while we were getting ready she got some great pictures without us girls even noticing! She also helped us out by driving to the location we took pictures at for our first look and she captured that (something I wasn't sold on at first--but my fiance was and I am so glad she was there to catch that intimate moment of us seeing each other for the first time--by far my favorite pictures from the wedding day!). She used the space we had for the wedding pictures (it was raining that day!) and got so many versatile looks from just one spot which was very cool. The pictures from the ceremony were also so great as she captured every genuine moment during the ceremony and the reception pictures were fun. She got the pictures back to us in a timely manner after the wedding and still even answers texts/emails. She is an awesome photographer---very professional, great quality work, great price and she is a great person. I couldn't have picked anyone better to help make our day so special and to help capture memories that will last forever!
Stephanie and I have been friends for many years and I remember hoping and praying that she would be willing to photograph our wedding knowing that she wouldn't be able to be an "average" guest in attendance. I have admired her work for so long and have loved looking at each and every shoot that I see of hers because every one is unique. Hearing her agree with excitement to be our wedding photographer made me feel so much more relaxed about our destination wedding! A great photographer was one of the most important things on my list and I knew I had nothing to worry about! Eventhough I knew Stephanie very well, many of the wedding guests did not and could not stop talking about how amazing she was at "running back and forth" to get perfect shots at every angle without being intrusive. She captured absolutely every moment from start to finish, some I didn't even know that she took until we got them back (which provided many laughs)! The bridal party and family continuously commented on her professionalism and calm, fun personality that kept everyone relaxed and laughing. Her talent was evident that day and it shows in each and every photo we received. I am not going to lie, I am a little obsessed with our pictures! Stephanie, with the equally amazing help from Alisha, was able to calm my husband and I's nerves before it was time for our first look. They captured amazing shots of this special moment and we couldn't even tell they were there with us! I highly recommend a first look to any bride and groom looking for a few quiet moments together and wonderful pictures. I had always dreamed of a beach wedding and thanks to Stephanie and Lady of the Lens, we have all of the many, many special moments captured forever. More perfect than I could have dreamed! THANK YOU!!!!! -Amanda and Bryan
One word to describe my photography experience, the quality of photos, and Stephanie and her team: perfection.
Whatever you want, Stephanie and her team can and will deliver. She makes sure that your wedding day goes smoothly and that she captures every single special moment.
I can truly relive my wedding day every time I look at my wedding photo albums. Stephanie and her team didn't miss a thing. They captured everything I wanted and more. She has the most creative and thoughtful eye. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding photography experience. Thank you to Stephanie and her team for creating tangible memories to last my husband and me a lifetime.
Stephanie did a wonderful job photographing our wedding. She didn't miss a single moment, and we loved all of our pictures. She was professional, and we were to glad she was able to be the photographer for our wedding.
A very professional, organized and helpful photographer. Went above and beyond to give us beautiful wedding photos. I would highly recommend Lady of the Lens!
I was an out of town bride and very nervous about choosing vendors without being able to meet with them a few times. Stephanie spoke with me over the phone and through email multiple times to answer all of my questions. She went out of her way to meet with me when I was in town to discuss some details. Stephanie also helped me immensely with my day of schedule, which was extremely comforting. She also gave small pieces of advice that made the day so much better. She stuck very close to the shot list that I provided and was able to get so many of the shots that I wanted. I couldn't believe I was looking at MY wedding photos when I got them back. During the day, she was so calm while everyone else was feeling nervous about all of the festivities. Her calm demeanor helped me to enjoy our photos and not constantly focus on the time. She also helped us to move along to different events during the day to stay on schedule. During moments that we just weren't sure what to do, she shouted out a few suggestions for poses that turned out to be such great poses! Her experience is so clear and was invaluable on our big day.
Stephanie was 8 months pregnant while she was shooting the photos of our wedding and she still did an amazing job! Her assistant was great too and our pictured turned out beautiful, I literally love every one of them!! Stephanie did a really great job of making sure she captured everything we wanted and dealt really well with our insane families. I would absolutely recommend Lady of the Lens!!
As the subject states, Stephanie and her second shooter, Alisha, went way beyond the call of duty for our wedding. From our initial meeting/interview with her, we knew she was our photographer just based on her first impression and professionalism. She accommodated us while offering up her personal point of view. We were so happy with her treatment of us, we couldn't trust anyone else for our engagement photos as well. She was able to have fun with us that we never felt like "clients" to her. She is a true gem to photography in west-central PA and we're very thankful for her services.
We used Stephanie for both our engagement and wedding pictures, and we are thrilled with how everything turned out. Stephanie is fantastic to work with- she is professional, organized, detail-oriented, talented, friendly, and made everyone very comfortable. She far exceeded our expectations, and we are very happy that we had the opportunity to work with her. My husband and I were speechless when we reviewed our wedding pictures- she and her staff captured the day perfectly and we enjoyed seeing the moments that we missed during the craziness of the day. We highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for their photographer, you will not be disappointed!
There are not enough positive things that I could say about Stephanie from Lady of the Lens Photography! She was absolutely fabulous during our engagement session as she worked around our tight schedule and had fantastic ideas for locations, so I had very high hopes for our wedding day. Stephanie, Ali, and Alisha more than surpassed our expectations. I became very sick on my wedding day, and she was not only patient and encouraging, but also very accommodating and creative. She turned what could have been a disastrous situation on one of the most important days of my life around so I still ended up with absolutely gorgeous pictures and a smile on my face. She and her team actually ended up personally driving us around to our photography locations to make as much use of our time as possible. I will never forget what she did for me and my husband on our wedding. She is creative and original, and it is amazing what she can capture. I would recommend Stephanie with absolutely no hesitation. When you select her as a photographer, you're picking someone who will do everything she possibly can to make your day as special as possible. You really are getting the best photographer with her.
Stephanie is simply great to work with. She is easy to talk to and get along with. She understands your needs and works well with all the families in the wedding. She has a great eye for photography and is really good at finding places to take pictures and has great ideas of pictures to take.
Stephanie was absolutely amazing! She really took the time to make sure our wedding pictures were unique to us. From our bridal party to our family who looked at our proofs on her website, everyone was blown away by her work and creative eye.
I would absolutely recommend booking Stephanie for your wedding. She is a joy to work with and is so great. You owe it to yourself to have amazing wedding pictures.
Lady of the Lens was recommended to me by the staff at the resort where my wedding was held and I am very glad that I took their advice!
Stephanie took a lot of time answering our questions prior to our wedding and worked with us on timing for the day of so that all our pictures could be taken with minimum disruption to the time spent with our quests. On the day of the wedding, Stephanie and her assistant arrived on time and were very organized, efficient and creative in the pictures that they took. They were all very personable and helped my husband and I relax so that our pictures are natural and beautiful and convey the emotion of the day.
One of the benefits of using Stephanie is that she does not limit the number of hours that she is available to you on the day of the wedding. The other benefit is having her assistant as a second photographer. Although I originally thought that this was not needed since I was having a small wedding (50 people), after seeing the pictures I would recommend everyone have a second photographer capture their wedding day moments. The benefit of the second photographer is that you have different perspectives/angles of the same moments that a single photographer would not be able to capture.
Although I have not even ordered my album yet I cannot wait until I receive it! Stephanie's photo journalistic style and the beauty and imagination of the images she captured are remarkable, even before seeing the final product. Thank you Stephanie for doing such a remarkable job capturing our day!
