I'm Stephanie Benge and I'm a Tennessee and Destination wedding photographer. I LOVE WEDDINGS. I love pretty dresses, I love flowers, I love pretty paper, I love dancing, I especially love cake. It's amazing that I've found a career that manages to feature all of the things I enjoy most. I think it's important that the professionals involved in making a wedding day go smoothly truly enjoy what they do. I get so much joy from being a part of someone's wedding day and creating timeless images for the couple to enjoy and share with their loved ones.
My style is natural and clean. I use almost all natural light, and try my best to create natural posing from my subjects. I edit in a way that renders clean, light final images. On a wedding day I really try to take a photojournalistic approach and include many candid, unposed photos. My brides always love the photos they didn't even realize I took!
I love working with creative, relaxed, and fun couples. I'm always up for trying something new or going on an adventure and I want my couples to do the same! My favorite weddings are intimate, and full of special details that highlight the couple's personality. I always get so excited when I show up at a wedding and see something new!
While being a wedding photographer is my job, it doesn't always feel like it. I create real and lasting friendships with my clients and their families. It's an honor to be included in someone's wedding day - and I don't take that lightly. I'm so thankful for all of the people who allow me in their inner circle for one of the most important days of their lives.
This engagement shoot was taken in Nashville, Tennessee last fall. I love it because the colors outside were incredible and I had so much fun with Whitney and Ethan. I can't wait for their wedding in June!
I would love to talk to you about documenting your love story.
