Steph Stevens Photo = Love.

As you know, A & I have been serious about not using corporations for any aspect of our upcoming wedding– being student business alumni, we feel strongly that the economy must support small and local businesses… And precedent/experience shows that the smaller companies often provide better quality service than the larger ones. Case in point: David’s Bridal. I’ve never met anyone who was satisfied with her experience, save one girl who magically needed no alterations to the gown she purchased there. I bought my dress at New York Lace, a Taunton mainstay with a 100 year reputation and a selection rivaling Priscilla of Boston’s— and couldn’t be happier.

The same goes for photography. While photography firms certainly have their benefits, the most special thing about our wedding experience thus far has been the personal touch of having a friend take pictures for us. Steph Steven’s is a Pioneer Valley-to-Boston transplant with a background in corporate photography, but she figured out fairly quickly that while gigs with one-day turnarounds have their merits, what she loves is the personal aspects of her job.

And, since she’s a veritable natural spring of energy, she started Steph Stevens Photography, her very own business. You know I admire that kind of ambition in a girl, so it was almost never a question of who we’d hire. Steph is a close friend of my dear love Cait, and when we saw her website and blog, Adam & I agreed her style was perfect for the big day.
