My husband and I established Stephanie Manning Photography in early 2004 later that year in June we got married. Our wedding really helped us understand what a client wants when it comes to capturing memories; we have taken that experience and made it the foundation for how we run our business. Examples of this are; each session is individually tailored to your desires, a CD of all the best images is included with any photo session, and on location photo sessions (backdrops and lighting or outdoors) is included. I try to listen and understand the needs of my clients, and bring a great deal of patience, and compassion to all photo sessions. With my understanding and personable attitude I obtain a personal connection with my clients; which paves the way for an exceptional level of customer service and optimistically illustrates a photographer that cares as much about the process of capturing your memories as you do. And now that we have children, we are more aware than ever of how precious a picture can be. I have a passion for life as well as my work, I love to capture unique and natural moments as they unfold… to preserve the milestones of life for you to treasure for years to come. My style of photography is casual and un-posed, I believe that the best images are captured when people are being themselves and unaware of the camera. I do have a traditional side to my photography where we start off in some casual arrangements and allow spontaneity to take off… Outdoor sessions, I find, are particularly uninhibited and allow my clients to be less aware of the camera.
