D E TA I L S BY STEPHANIE ROGERS PHOTOGRAPHY
OUR STORY We met some years back while we were still teenagers. Bradley drove over to Austin to see a band that was on tour but was going to skip Houston, and I planned on going to see them as well. We were already friends online, so it wasn’t as if it was just a coincidence that we were going to be in the same place at the same time. But we had never met in person before, so we were really excited to finally get the chance to hang out. There was no romantic pretense. Sure, we both thought the other was attractive, but dating really wasn’t on our radar. We had no idea we would fall in love. Not long after, Bradley and I did what people who fall in love typically do. We got married. Although, before that happened, we decided to spend our combined savings on a starter camera and a lens or two so that we could take pictures of Chicago while on our honeymoon. There was never any intention of falling in love with photography, either. But here we are now, after doing this for over five years and never looking back. I’d say everything has worked out perfectly. - Bradley and Stephanie Rogers
The people in these photos are not professional models. Theyâ€™re simply two individuals who fell in love. These images were composed not only from skill behind the camera, but also by creating an environment where our couples will feel comfortable and relaxed. These two factors are all that is required for us to create works of art together that will be remembered. We express our inspiration through creative portraiture inspired by fashion and editorial photography. Using this approach we are able to give life to our photographs in a way that will be consistent in all situations and settings. Whether it be an engagement or bridal session or an entire wedding, we work with our couples to find what elements of our work are most attractive to them. We have found that when there is collaboration, there is also a stronger connection between the subjects and the images. All of our couples rest assured knowing that we will always capture the emotion of the moment. The groomâ€™s reaction to seeing his bride upon their first look, and the air of celebration on the dance floor showcase the variety of passion to be experienced in their photographs.

THE BIGGEST SURPRISE ABOUT THEIR WEDDING DAY
“The biggest surprise about our wedding day was the amount of people that showed up. We only anticipated up to 130 guests, and 190 showed up. It was fun, but we were totally stressed about it! We also had my step-father officiate, and we had no idea what he would say, and it made our ceremony that much more wonderful with the small surprises and readings from my husband’s sisters. It made those 20 minutes much more memorable!”
HER FAVORITE MOMENT
“My favorite photo moment would be seeing my husband cry while I walked down the aisle. When I saw him crying, I could not stop myself from crying!”
HIS FAVORITE MOMENT
“My husband’s favorite photo moment is when he picked me up throwing my feet in the air.”
THE BEST ADVICE FOR THE BRIDE AND GROOM
“Our best advice to a bride (or couple!) would be to remain flexible. Many things go awry, but as long as you can laugh off the problems, then the day will go perfect regardless! Also, make every moment fun. Also, GO UNPLUGGED during your ceremony! Some people will not listen, but its better than everyone ruining photos with their camera phones. Other ‘little things’: Ceremony Programs are unnecessary, we went without and NO ONE noticed. Invitations and what not do not have to break the bank. A good photographer is worth every penny. My husband’s brother got married 6 months before us, and went with nonprofessional photographer. They disliked their photos, the photographer was late on their wedding day, and it took almost 3 months to receive those photos after they got married. For us, Stephanie and Bradley were our FAVORITE vendor. They felt like old friends and kept us on time with everything from six months before our wedding to the day of.”
WHAT THEY LOVED MOST ABOUT WORKING WITH STEPHANIE ROGERS PHOTOGRAPHY “I can’t even fathom where to start. We love the photographers as people. as professionals, and as artists. Their style is unmatched to any other photographer we found. Stephanie helped with our timeline for the big day before the coordinator even got in contact with me. They were prepared and really had the most wonderful presence during our day. They’re not boastful or cocky, because they know that their work speaks for itself. Even weeks after our wedding, my husband and I still talk about how fantastic our photos turned out, and how thankful we are that we chose Stephanie Rogers Photography to photograph our engagement, our wedding, and really the beginning of the rest of our life!”
CLIENT REVIEWS MICHAEL AND JANAE | JANUARY, 16 2016
“My husband and I were BLOWN AWAY with Stephanie Rogers Photography. From the first time we talked to her to the day we received our wedding images, every interaction we had with Stephanie and Bradley was above and beyond. They even helped us think through the flow of our wedding day, giving us hints on what tends to work best from their experience (something they totally didn’t have to do, but was so helpful!) Working with them on our wedding day was seamless. Not only did they not add any chaos, they helped calm people down and make the whole day go smoothly. Most everyone from our wedding party made a comment about how cool they were and how nice they were to work with. And then there are the photos!!! We are in love. We have looked through the hundreds of wedding photos countless times and every image is amazing. They have an amazing eye for capturing sentimental moments and the whole feel of the wedding day. We have already ordered hundreds of prints and know we are going to cherish these photos for the rest of our lives. So many of our friends and family have commented on how amazing our photos turned out. If you are looking for a wedding photographer, hire Stephanie Rogers Photography!!!! You will not regret it. They provided an amazing experience, were so kind to everyone on our wedding day, and provided us with the most beautiful photos to remember the best day of our lives.”
SEAN AND STEPHANIE | JUNE 11, 2016 â€œStephanie and her hubby Bradley were AMAZING!!!!! I can not sing enough praises about them...They made my wedding day so easy and relaxing with their bright and joyful attitudes. Their passion for capturing love and family in creative ways was felt the days leading up to the wedding, during, and after. I am personally blown away by the photos they took- I cried many tears of joy!! While looking at the photos I was able to feel the day again! Stephanie and Bradley partner in their marriage well to capture the JOY & RADIANCE of marriage beginnings. They would be the perfect addition to any wedding and will add nothing but joy, chill vibes, creativity, and laughter to your future wedding day. Look no further folks, this is the photographer to have.â€?
EVAN AND WHITNEY | OCTOBER 22, 2016 “If you have the opportunity to book Stephanie and Bradley, don’t hesitate. Words don’t do them justice, but I will try to express how amazing they are in terms of talent, customer service, and graciousness. We were fortunate enough to have Stephanie and Bradley do our engagement photos, bridal photos, and wedding photos. All were fantastic and unique yet timeless. Friends and family made several comments about the photos looking like they belong in a magazine. Their use and knowledge of lighting is amazing and made for some truly breathtaking photos. Each time we got photos back, we had a hard time picking favorites which is the best problem to have! They did a phenomenal job capturing our wedding from beginning to end and providing us with memories from the day that we will cherish forever. The wedding day goes by so fast and it is hard to remember/catch everything that happens as the bride and groom, so having these beautiful photos to look back on is incredibly meaningful. Stephanie and Bradley make the process of taking photos comfortable and fun. Aside from just being extremely pleasant to be around, Stephanie knows her stuff when it comes to posing so you are sure to look great under her creative eye and direction; no need to worry about looking or feeling awkward! She is also ridiculously responsive to emails/ texts and is so helpful in a variety of areas....” (view the full review on weddingwire)
