Judges Comments: Elegant. It has all the essential elements to say wedding at Yosemite and is stunning in its simplicity. It shows wedding and place in just a few objects. Excellent thinking on the photographer’s part. Click here
Judges Comments: I remember my wedding day and certainly I was worried about the responsibilities of my marriage vows, but I might have been more worried about saying those vows and not screwing up. This photograph shows a good eye of a talented storyteller. Very well done! Click Here

Stephanie Secrest Photography - The Results
They say that getting married is the happiest time in your life; however, planning the wedding can be the most frustrating time in your life. Choosing Stephanie to be our photographer ended up being one of our best decisions. Once the decision was made we felt that there was one less thing to worry about. Her artistic vision combined with her professionalism really put our minds at ease; giving us every confidence that the pictures would be everything we dreamed them to be. After the wedding that opinion changed, for the better. We could not have wished for a more wonderful experience, as she followed us from hotel and church prior to the wedding, during the ceremony, both receptions, and to an unplanned trip to Peoples Park to feed the homeless. She blended into the wedding so well, some of our guests asked if she was part of the family. After looking at the pictures we were blown way at how well she captures the essence, beauty, and emotion of the wedding. As a teacher I can honestly say if you are considering hiring Stephanie as your photographer you have already passed Wedding Planning 101.

I would highly recommend her to shoot any event and especially a wedding. What I liked about Stephanie was that she really listened to what my husband and I wanted and added her amazing artistic eye to every picture. I just can¹t say enough wonderful things about her and our amazing photos!
