We had Anne taken pictures for our occasion and pictures came out perfect. Anne also is great and easy person to work with and knows photography skills perfectly. Very fast response to messages. Angles of pictures and lighting indoors and outdoors is impressive. Very detailed and spends time to take the best pictures. Will hire Anne for any future occasions without any Second thoughts. 10/10

Anne Stephenson was amazing! She helped me take photos of my proposal after my photographer had to cancel last minute due to COVID-19. She responded immediately but also included great ideas with the theme I was going for. Right away she was very detail oriented, put a lot of thought into her work and super easy to work with. Photos were beautiful and I'm really happy with the overall experience. She made our experience very special and now we have these memories to last a lifetime! Highly recommend for any event. Thank you, Anne!!!!

Oscar, thank you so much for your 5-star review! I loved being a part of your surprise engagement team with family and friends. You put so much thought and attention to detail into your proposal to Irlee. I enjoyed contributing my lighting expertise to meet your goal of capturing the warm light of golden hour. It was an honor to be a part of such a memorable experience and to capture the beginnings of your love story. I wish you both much happiness together in the years to come.

I can’t thank you enough, Shay, for your review. It means a lot to see that the service I provide makes for a great experience. I loved collaborating with Tessa on her vision for senior photos in a downtown setting. She’s an amazing young woman and I’m looking forward to hearing about all of the great things she’s doing in the future. Best wishes on her upcoming graduation.

Anne was one of very few photographers to respond quickly. I was working on a surprise party, so I appreciated the speed of response and also the discretion from Anne. On the evening of the event, Anne was punctual, friendly and got on with her work effortlessly. What blew me away the most was the quality of Anne’s work. The pictures that she captured are perfect, exactly as per my request. Plus there are so many pictures & no party guests are missing from the collection. Then, to cap it off, the detail that Anne provided in order to view & download the pictures was excellent. Anne even formatted the pictures for print and Apple TV after asking where I would display them. Exceptional service, quality and value. I would not even solicit bids from other photographers for my next event. I will use Anne & I strongly recommend that others do.

My husband and I hired Anne Stephenson as our engagement and wedding photographer, and we could not have hired a better photographer or a better person! Both my husband and I are extremely shy and do not consider ourselves photogenic, in fact, we both think we are awkward, but Anne made us look like movie stars (in my case, professional hair and makeup helped too). After we shared our photos, these are the comments we received from family: +(Mother-in-law Wynne) "OMG these are great!" +(Sister Jennifer)"Those look awesome, Jamie and Riley! I think they turned out better than Cortney’s and mine, and I really liked ours. The lighting is great." +(Cousin Mick) "Jamie- you are super photogenic! You are a beautiful bride!" +(Aunt LaVon) "Corey is really photogenic." +(Aunt Pat) "GREAT pictures of a happy day!" +(Multiple family members, including my father): “You guys had a really great photographer.” Anne is detail-oriented, prepared, professional, a great listener, and she communicates well to determine what kind of photographs you are looking for. Not only that, she saved our wedding by letting me know that there was a mistake in our chapel reservation. If she had not noticed that, we would not have been married in the chapel we thought we had reserved. I would HIGHLY recommend her. These are photographs and memories we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    In fairness to my clients, I operate on a first-come-first-served basis. If you provide a signed agreement and retainer payment, that makes us official. I also offer payment plans for clients. All final payments for weddings and events are due two weeks prior. I'm transparent in my pricing. All of my rates are posted on Thumbtack and I send my official rate card when I connect with potential clients.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I believe good communication before, during and after your event or project results in photographs you will love. I usually start with a phone call and ask questions to understand the scope of work required and ensure I'm the right person for the job. A couple of months out, we have a face-to-face meeting or video conference where we can go over the timeline and details. A week before, I confirm things and we go over any last minute changes. Yes, there will be some! The day before the event, I text for final confirmation. After the event, I ask my client's for feedback and what worked/didn't work or advice they might have for future couples.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I went back to school after working in marketing communications and received a BS degree in photography from the Art Institute of Salt Lake City, Utah. I'm a lover of learning--My first BS degree focused on chemistry and professional writing which helps with problem solving and communicating effectively. I frequently attend photography workshops, binge watch Creative Live, and am on my way to becoming a podcast addict. The more I learn, the more I bring to my photography and business for my clients.
