“Stephanie was recommended to us by the owners of the cabins my husband and our families stayed at for our wedding in Brown County. From the time we contacted Stephanie , she has been a pleasure to work with. She made the experience really fun- we didn’t feel like we were taking photos- just hanging out with a close friend. Our pictures turned out amazing- Stephanie is truly talented at what she does. She beautifully captured the memories of our special day. Stephanie mailed us our photos within 2 weeks of the session and we were blown away by what was provided to us. The photos were packaged beautifully and carefully. She even went an extra step and added special touches 3 of the photos- making it easier for us to hang in our home. Not only would we recommend her to anyone, we cannot wait to use her talents for future special events.”
“Stephanie has an eye – everyone can see that. Her real talent is in creating an amazing experience during what’s typically a stressful, frenzied time. She took the time to make sure she knew exactly what we wanted (and what we didn’t) in our day and left us with absolute confidence. Looking back, we’re so glad that we did an engagement session. Not only did it give us a ton of less-formal pictures, it took away any anxiety about how things would go on our wedding day. We got to experience Stephanie’s style of direction and she got to figure out how to make us do what she needed. We got to see how she worked under the pressure of a setting sun and know she’d be able to pull off our wedding day schedule. I know our wedding pictures were better because of this session. On our wedding day, she captured every emotion and every detail, it seemed. Every time we look at the pictures, we are certain that we made the right choice!”
“I am so pleased that we worked with Stephanie Stewart and Stewart Imagery! Stephanie is the whole package. Not only does she have a vision, but she is incredibly kind, organized and driven. Throughout the wedding planning process, she was with us every step of the way. Initially we were not going to have engagement photos taken, but I’m so glad we did! Taking engagement photos was great practice for the “big day”, as I think we felt even more at ease on our wedding day than during our engagement photo session. Not only was it good practice, but now we have hundreds of readily available pics that were shot in special, meaningful places throughout our neighborhood. Stephanie was always organized and on top of everything. Her questionnaires and forms were quite helpful and guided me through the planning process. Without her direction, I would’ve been lost. As a photographer, Stephanie is so creative and gifted. She has such an artistic eye with such a vision. She has so many ideas running through her head. She takes charge and guides you through the planning, shooting, etc., but she is always open to suggestion if you have a particular idea in mind for a shot, location, etc. On our wedding day she was such a smash! The space where we got married was quite large and she had to be on her feet all day for hours. Despite this, she remained energetic, hard working, positive and driven. She captured every detail. We are so happy with our photos and the variety and quantity of shots. She took some traditional shots, and she also took many candid, creative shots. It was a happy balance. We are so happy with everything! She is affordable, hard working, enthusiastic, and like I said, extremely creative. She is a team player and works with you to create what it is you’re looking for. And if you aren’t sure, she is there with a number of ideas, always. I would definitely recommend Stewart Imagery to everyone and anyone! I can’t say enough nice things about working with Stewart Imagery. Thank you Stephanie!!”
“From the moment I decided to have Stephanie do my wedding pictures to receiving the final album, she was very personable, sweet, and wanted to make sure my husband Derek and I got exactly what we wished for on our special day. Derek and I wanted images that captured our love as it happened in the moment and Stephanie did just that. The planning process went very smooth. Stephanie had another event the same weekend as our wedding, but she took extra measures to make sure she was back for our big day because she really cares for her clients. We wanted our engagement pictures in the spring outside and we waited all through March until the middle of April and Stephanie picked the most perfect day. The lighting was amazing and the shots she got of us were superb! We even got to bring our dogs and she was able to capture their personalities too. On our wedding day, we were excited to start pictures before the wedding. Stephanie did what she calls a “first look” session with Derek and I where we got to see each other prior to the wedding and the moments she caught of us were so sweet! She worked really well accommodating all of my wedding guests throughout the day and they had nothing but compliments on what a great job she did. We also enjoyed a or “trash the dress” session the day after our wedding which I highly recommend. These were some of my favorite shots as Derek and I were able to relax and enjoy the canal and downtown Indianapolis. Stephanie really has a knack for finding awesome locations and shots. Stephanie also got our photo CDs back to us in a timely manner after each session and the quality of the pictures were great. Thank you Stephanie for making our day most special and giving us such memorable wedding photos!”
“I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Stephanie at Stewart Imagery. Our images turned out even better than I had hoped for. Stephanie took the time to edit and share hundreds of photos from our 45-minute session (even with a toddler who wasn't feeling too good). However, the best part was how relaxed she made us feel, including our toddler, to get some amazing images. I have and will continue to recommend Stewart Imagery to my friends and family. I'm excited to use Stephanie in the future, I know she will deliver more than expected again.”
"We have used Stephanie as our family photographer for 7 years, since my maternity shoot. She has been there to capture birthday parties and beautiful moments with our family. Stephanie is an amazing photographer and an amazing person, she treats her clients like family, each session we have had with her has been a fun experience. The quality of her work is top notch and her photographs are beautiful. We have recommended her to many friends and family members."
"Stephanie Stewart does amazing work! She captured our two kids' personalities at the ages of 2 and 4 perfectly and had patience doing so. These precious life moments are incredibly important to capture and having a trusted photographer is key. Thank you Stephanie for being a part of our family's memories!"
"As my husband and I planned our wedding, we wanted to make sure we had fantastic pictures because those would be what lasts the longest from our special day as we celebrate each anniversary. However, Stewart Imagery doesn't provide just fantastic pictures, they provide a wonderful experience. Prior to our pre-wedding meeting with Stephanie, she had us complete a questionnaire about expectations, moments we hope to capture, what we are looking for in wedding photography, etc. I'm sure most of our answers were pretty standard, however I remember writing "make me look beautiful" on there. Stephanie delivered! She has real talent in capturing emotions, moments and details. When we ventured to McCormick's Creek State Park for our engagement session, we had a perfect spring day. Rather than being just another thing to check off the list of things to do for the wedding, we enjoyed a refreshing break from the stress of planning a wedding and lost ourselves in the moment, celebrating where we got engaged. Stephanie didn't rush us and let us be ourselves and tell our story. I've recommended Stewart Imagery to several friends and family. Stephanie pays attention to the details and has a warmth about her, making us feel she truly cares about our experience and capturing our memories. This past summer we worked with Stephanie again for our family session. Despite the August heat, we had a fun time. Again Stephanie delivered, capturing sweet moments with us and our little man."
“Our experience with Stewart Imagery was fantastic. We are very, very happy with how they captured our engagement and wedding day. Our favorite part of the whole experience is how comfortable and happy Stewart Imagery made us feel throughout the entire process - especially during photo sessions. I would recommend Stewart Imagery to friends and family for any wedding or family photo sessions because they provide wonderful, quality photos that capture the feeling of the moment and the personalities of the subjects.”
"We write to you to express our gratitude for your marvelous work before, during, and after our wedding. The photographic memories captured from our day, no doubt due to your unbelievable care and attention, continues to delight our family and friends. As the recipients of a wish from Wish Upon A Wedding (Indianapolis chapter), we didn't really know what to expect. Our expectations were shattered by the remarkable people who made our wedding day such an enjoyable and perfect experience. We wouldn't have changed a thing.
We appreciate the way you planned out carefully the kinds of pictures to be taken, and we appreciated the helpful suggestions you made along the way. During this process, we were assured of your expertise, but your experience became abundantly clear when we met, which made us feel confident that you would do a great job. We didn't expect much in the beginning: a very small wedding (less than 50 guests) and all of our vendors donated their services, including Stewart Imagery.
At the wedding itself, your professional, organized manner helped us to enjoy our big day. You helped keep everyone calm and happy, just in the right mood for terrific pictures. I don't think we expected our photographer to become such a wonderful, integral guest at our own wedding, but you were like a good friend to us, and an extemely competent friend at that. The sheer number of formal and informal portraits you took, and their overall quality, were truly impressive. Our guests especially admired your courteous manner as you were working through The Indianapolis Yacht Club, snapping memorable shots.
When we received the sneak peek (in a 24-hour turnaround no less) your work was impressively well-received and every photo was stunningly beautiful and we loved how you had everything done for us in such a timely manner. These photos will surely be a treasured part of our lives, as reminders of a lovely, happy, and even sunny as we turned to each other to exchange our vows. Stephanie was able to photograph each loving moment that proved to us that behind the pictures, there's the work of an excellent professional, and a really pleasant woman who creates pure magic.
Thank you, Stephanie. You captured more than just our memories, you captured our hearts."
"We feel so lucky to have found Stephanie to take our family pictures each year! She is creative, fun to work with and has a great rapport with our young son. Anyone can buy an expensive camera and take pictures, but it's clear that Stephanie is a professional with a great eye and real technical knowledge that allows her to capture truly timeless family moments. We always get compliments on the pictures she's taken of our family, and we highly recommend her to everyone we know!"
"What is not to love about Stephanie and her photography? For over 4 years, twice a year, now I go to her to take my boys and family photos. I have NEVER been disappointed. In fact, on the shoots I feel like I will be lucky to get even one good photo, I am blown away with how perfect she captured the boys and I have multiple pictures to choose from. I am looking forward to her capturing our family for years to come! The boys wouldn’t want it any other way either!"
"Oh my goodness, we just got to look at all of our pictures! Thank you so incredibly much for capturing our maternity pictures in the most amazing way! We truly could not be more in love with them! You were truly amazing to work with and we will definitely be highly recommending you to friends in the future. :) Thank you so much again!"
"I feel so lucky to have found Stephanie! For many years, a photog friend had taken yearly pics of my daughter and I. Distance made that impossible this year. I was overwhelmed by the thought of choosing a photographer. After asking for some recommendations, I started researching and emailing different photographers. These yearly photographs are so very special to me. I was so worried about not having my daughter's personality captured in her pictures. I immediately loved Stewart Imagery's photographs. They were bright, crisp, and not overly edited. After emailing her, I got an immediate sense of her kind spirit. She was so easy to communicate with about dates, times, and finding out what I was hoping our session would feel like and the type of photos that I was wanting to come from our session. Stephanie helped me decide to go a little different route than we had done before. I had always thought of a downtown shoot, but didn't really know good spots to go. Not only did she took care of that, she nailed it! She incorporated my favorite colors, offered plenty of variety of settings in a short distance. Some of my favorite photographs came from alleys or sidewalks. My daughter, even at nine, is not the most compliant subject to photograph. It ended up being crazy humid/hot on our shoot, but it wasn't a problem at all! Stephanie was kind, patient, and got so many amazing shots and made it feel super easy and light for us. I'm always worried about how the pictures will turn out...again my daughter is far from a happy model. The photographs were truly amazing! Having my daughter's personality captured, along with actually being in photographs with her our so very precious to me! I can't thank Stephanie enough for doing both so very well! If you are searching for a photographer and are reading this, you are lucky to have found her! I look forward to our next session with Stephanie."
“I seriously cannot choose the ones I love the most. They are ALL sooooo soooo good. We have not been this happy with family pictures before. We are just so thrilled how good these turned out. I would say the whole entire session went so smooth. I didn't have to worry about being creative or what type of poses to capture/not capture, because you were so in tune to reading my family. This above reason is how every single image turned out so wonderful! It's a great problem to have - not being able to choose a favorite due to them all being favorites!”
"We've used Stephanie with Stewart Imagery for several years now for pictures of the kids and family pictures. I love the way the final product turns out. She's great with my kids and great with capturing images of them (hard to do given the fact that they don't stay still). Stephanie is very prompt and very good about follow-up which is important to me. I absolutely recommend Stewart Imagery!"
"Working with Stephanie Stewart was an absolute pleasure! Stephanie spent time getting to know each of us, us as a couple, and our love story. She infused these personal details throughout our three shoots with her. Stephanie was always prepared for our shoots. This was evidenced by the materials she brought with her and the photo locations that she scouted out prior to our shoots. Stephanie easily calmed our nerves prior to each session. Her positive and upbeat personality kept us smiling and engaged throughout the entire process. Stephanie was always so excited to share the photos with us right away. She was always professional, courteous, and energetic! Stephanie's passion for taking great photos is evident throughout her work. We enjoyed the entire process with Stephanie, but our favorite part was receiving our gorgeous photos!"
“Our experience with Stewart Imagery was fantastic. My daughter had a blast and we ended up with tons of pictures in our one hour setting. And we love the pictures - "stunning" is consistent feedback. We liked how Stephanie contacted us ahead of time to see what locations we wanted incorporated and she fit them all in. It was a great experience, the pictures are amazing and we highly recommend Stewart Imagery.”
“I found Stephanie online and immediately fell in love with her photos. After emailing a couple of times, I knew she had to be the photographer for our wedding! We live in Georgia, so it was important for us to have someone who could communicate well, be very organized and prepared, and accommodate us in the long distance planning. She was all these and more! She was the easiest of all my vendors to communicate with and was always one step ahead of the game, which I really appreciated. On our actual wedding day, working with Stephanie was such a wonderful experience! I felt like I had gained a new friend by the end of the day! She is such a kind and warm hearted spirit and created an aura of happiness and ease. She is so talented and had such an eye for the perfect shots. Her attention to detail was stunning and she captured every moment and emotion of our day so well. She made all of us feel comfortable and really showed that she cared and wanted to be there. The entire day she worked so hard and put so much effort into everything. Her work ethic and talent was so amazing to watch at work. When we received the photos we were in awe of how beautiful they were! Each and everyone was so perfect and captured our day so beautifully. We love recommending her to our friends and family in Indiana and can't wait to have her shoot more of our family photos in the future!”
“We have had the joy of having Stephanie photograph our family several times since our first son was born in 2013. Each time, we are blown away by the moments she is able to capture of our family. Her personality and gentle guidance allow us to be completely comfortable during our sessions with her, which allow candid moments between us to be captured. She truly cares about the people she works with, and it shows in the images. Having two little guys of her own, she knows just how to get our son to cooperate, and she is able to get photos of him that show every different facet of his big personality. We love working with Stephanie because she makes what would normally be a stressful, sometimes awkward time for us, into a fun, beautiful memory for us. We have her work all over our home, and get so many compliments from friends and family! Thank you, Stephanie, for capturing these memories and moments of our little family!!!”
"I have been fortunate enough to have Stephanie Stewart as my photographer for the past 8 years. She has done wedding, baby, and family sessions for us. She continues to amaze me with the beauty she captures in her photography. Her attention to detail is remarkable, truly! I love how she makes each and every session feel special. She is so very sweet, and easy to work with. She truly feels like family after all these years, and I recommend her to any and all of my friends and family seeking a photographer."
"The photography is gorgeous and everything that we discussed! I love the choices Stephanie made for styling the group photos of the lipsticks as well as the swatches. The photos will look great on both the website and social media."
"As the saying goes, pictures are worth a thousand words. A moment captured between you and the people you love are so important to have and something to hold onto to bring back the memories of such a special occasion. For my husband and I, we wanted to find a photographer who we liked the aesthetic of pictures they took, but also someone who we felt comfortable with. Because at the end of the day, having someone we enjoyed being with and trusted made all the difference. When I came across Stephanie's website, I was so excited because her pictures were beautiful and when I reached out, I was happy to find she was so kind and easy to talk to. After our initial meeting, we left so impressed by her patience and amount of time she was willing to talk with us, as well as showing us albums she created (which were stunning)! My husband and I knew she would be the one to take on the role of capturing our special moments. We loved having our engagement session with her and it in a way prepared us for how we would like to pose for our wedding. Stephanie and her assistant had great time management at our wedding, and it was so helpful that she was able to take charge and tell people where to go and how to pose. Her attention to small details did not go unnoticed. I also appreciated how I didn't feel like there was a camera on me at all times, she did phenomenal at getting the shot without distracting me, my husband, or guests. The extra time she was willing to take at the end of our day to accommodate for our busy wedding schedule was also so appreciated, and once again goes to show just how much she truly cares. Looking back at our wedding from the album she created for us, I can say without hesitation that you want Stephanie by your side for your big day!"
