Stephanie Anestis Photography
Modern wedding photography emphasizes relationships and moments, and my goal is to capture your wedding day authentically and joyfully. I want your photos to bring you back to the day years from now; you'll want to remember not just how everything looked, but how everything felt. Your furbaby's bowtie collar; your grandmother's tears of joy; your dad's extra-long hug with his brother; your mud-rimmed hem; a stolen moment together just after the ceremony. These are the moments that you'll treasure forever if someone is there to freeze them in time for you.
STEPHANIE HAS A GIFT
The way she captures moments, the way she is present yet invisible, the way she makes you feel calm. I remember the next day flying to our honeymoon and receiving sneak peeks of our wedding pictures. It was so significant having a glimpse of the masterpiece she had taken so soon after our special day.

ELOPEMENTS & ENGAGEMENT PARTIES
If you're planning an elopement, destination wedding, or engagement party, I would love to talk with you more. I love traveling & I love intimate celebrations, and we can create a custom package that fits your needs.
The greatest advice I got when planning my wedding was to hire the best photographer I could, then worry about everything else. Stephanie Anestis is the best of the best! I cannot overstate how happy I am that she captured our wedding day.
ERIKA & FELIPE
Take a scroll through to see some of my wedding work. It's so important that you absolutely LOVE the style of the photographer you choose!
Your wedding album will become an heirloom in your family. Your grandchildren may treasure it in fifty years, and you will treasure it now. I custom design each wedding album for my couples, and they are archival and absolutely beautiful. There are lots of cover choices and options to make it uniquely yours.
albums are included
All of my wedding packages include an heirloom album because I think they are so important. My two larger packages also include two 8x8 inch parent thank-you albums. They make a perfect gift for the ones who made this day possible.
WE ARE SO HAPPY
It’s hard to imagine our wedding without Stephanie’s calm presence and gorgeous photos. We had a very small wedding at a vineyard in Connecticut. Stephanie captured the intimacy of our event and so many wonderful spontaneous moments. She has the uncanny ability to let the wedding flow unhindered, and yet - when the moment comes for that great shot - she is in the right place at the right time!

YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY QUESTIONS
WHAT DOES "ALL DAY COVERAGE" MEAN?
It means I am yours for the day! I will arrive to photograph you getting ready, and stay 'til the very end! I find that storytelling works best when we don't skip the beginning or ending!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD WE BOOK?
The sooner, the better. I often have weddings on the books 18 months in advance, and I only photograph a small number of weddings per year.
CAN I SEE MORE OF YOUR WEDDING WORK?
Of course! Contact me via the form below and I can send you lots more examples of my wedding photography.
CAN YOU HELP US FIGURE OUT OUR TIMELINE?
Yes! It can be confusing to decide on things like a first look, how much time for family portraits, etc. I'm here to help guide you.
HOW DOES BOOKING WORK?
If we decide I'm the right wedding photographer for you, I'll write us a contract and send you an invoice with a clear payment schedule. I typically require a $500 non-refundable deposit to reserve your date, 1/2 payment due by your wedding day, and final payment when photos are ready.
where can i see all your offerings?
Just contact me if you'd like to see my full product list! In addition to albums, I create beautiful prints and other products for my wedding clients. I want your photos to be part of your family's legacy.
