I’m an introverted extrovert. And although I’m a terrible singer, I love to chant my favorite songs – everything from T. Swift to hip hop – when I’m in the car! I love tiramisu and coffee with too much milk. Scarves are one of my must-have accessories! I’m addicted to design of all kinds – interior, landscape, graphic, food, fashion, all of it.

I capture colorful and joyful imagery. Sweet details of love & life.

"There is not enough I could say about how fabulous Stephanie is. I've known Stephanie for 7 years, through my senior pictures, engagement pictures, and finally my wedding day. Each time she exceeded my expectations. She is one of the most genuine people I know who truly has a vision and passion for her work. Throughout the whole wedding process, she was there every step of the way. Planning and mapping out a wedding can be so stressful (especially during COVID) but Stephanie was always so organized and on top of everything that it helped put me at ease each and every time. On our special day, she captured every emotion, and every detail. My husband and I could not be happier with the finished photos we received. Her work is truly one of a kind. She is personable and truly takes the time to get to know you as a person. I am so thankful that I found Stephanie all those years ago. My husband and I cannot wait for her to continue capturing our priceless moments as our life journey continues."

"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 my 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!"

"I literally couldn’t stop smiling after I looked at Stephanie’s pictures from my daughter’s wedding! We absolutely love them. She captured the experience so beautifully and genuinely — now we will be able to relive that day and the emotion it held every time we look at these amazing pictures. 🙂 Also, we so appreciated how smooth the entire process was — from meeting with Stephanie to discuss our vision for the day, to all the work she did on the wedding day. She truly has a gift and we would recommend her to anyone. 🙂"

"From the first phone call I made to Stephanie, I felt like I was talking to my sister. So kind, upbeat, flexible, and caring, Stephanie wanted nothing more than to help me capture my son’s senior pictures on the timeline (it was very short) and way (it was pretty complicated) that I wanted. She shied away from none of the challenges we threw her way, and the end result was amazing! The album cover of the first set of photos she shared with us was a gorgeous image of my son and our 1-year-old puppy in a post-rain-storm covered gorge in Holliday Park. She knew what she wanted from this shot, and she made sure that she got it, despite the lack of cooperation from the participants (of course, the puppy offered more resistance than my son). The weather was chilly, everything was damp, and we arrived late, but none of that deterred Stephanie from giving us two full hours of attention that turned into more than 200 beautiful photos. I found Stephanie by accident (I was searching for another photographer with the same last name), but what a wonderful accident it was! I would recommend Stephanie to anyone who is looking for a warm, friendly photographer with a well-developed sense of artistry. You won’t be disappointed in the time you spend with her or in the incredible photos she produces to commemorate your special day."

"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!."

“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.”

"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!"

“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 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.”

HEATHER + BRIAN + EMILY

"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."


BRIAN + CAITLIN + AISLINN + AARON

"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!"

"Stephanie was so very thoughtful and creative with her photographs of my daughter's wedding. The photos really captured the personalities and the finest details of the day. She even got a nice photo of the engraving on the inside of the groom's wedding band he got from his grandfather. Stephanie turned this wedding that we had 3 weeks to plan into a sweet and wonderful day of love. Having these photos and memories are priceless! Thank you, Stephanie!!!






ginger + Marissa

“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 Stewart Imagery on Instagram and am so happy I did! Stephanie is professional, she communicates with clients quickly, and takes beautiful photos. We had her take our daughter's 6 Month Milestone photos and they turned out beautifully. I highly recommend her to all!"



julie

"Stephanie is amazing!!! The photos were beautiful and I had two crazy boys bringing the chaos. Stephanie made it a game for them and they ate it up. By far the best family pictures we’ve had. We will most definitely use her again!!! We now have a go to photographer."



becky + seth

"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!!!"

"Love your kindness and personal touch to details. You made my family and I feel very special & beautiful. We absolutely love the images you created and will treasure them forever. ♥️"



SUMRA

"We had our family pictures done by Stephanie last month. I was so nervous before the session because this was our first family photo shoot, and also because I have 2 little boys who are always on the move. Stephanie made us all feel at ease; she connected so well with the kids and was also able to capture beautiful candid in-between moments of my boys and I. I am so thankful that I had the chance to work with her. I will forever treasure these photos. The editing and style are exactly what I wanted for our photos: light, airy, and full of energy."



AMY

"Stephanie Stewart did an amazing job for my son's senior pictures. Not only are the pictures fantastic but she was able to truly capture my son's personality! Her sweet personality immediately put my son at ease, which made it possible to get the awesome shots! I would definitely recommend Stewart Imagery for any of your photo needs. She is sweet, kind and an incredible photographer. Her pictures are one of a kind and something we will treasure forever!"



Elizabeth Digiusto, satin & stems

"I hired Stephanie to capture the FEEL of the wedding I was creating, and she delivered it perfectly! As a wedding florist, it can be hard to get images that are true to color and style and I believe it is so hard to do just that. (But Stephanie did it!) I love all of the pictures I got back and I am so grateful to have those pictures to showcase my work. She was great with response time, meeting in person before the event, and was super focused and professional during the event. I cannot wait to work with her again!"



Kelly + Scott

"Family pictures can be a stressful time for everyone!! Stephanie goes above and beyond to make sure that it isn't stressful one bit! She has so much experience and makes you feel at ease while giving perfect pointers leading up to the session. Every session with Stephanie is different...she finds unique settings and makes sure the setting fits the family. We receive SO many compliments on our photos!! Thank you!!"


sylvia, beautifek

"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."


jenny + lucas

"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."
