Vendor Spotlight: Stephanie Godfrey Photography

A few weeks ago we hosted a little ladies party. We themed it our first annual Sparkle Party & had friends new & old come out and join us for a night of sparkling conversation & drinks! Stephanie, a fabulous friend we’ve made this year immediately volunteered to bring along her camera and capture some fabulous shots of our party. When we saw the images we immediately knew why brides & grooms are snapping her up for engagements & weddings across the country. We wanted to not only share some of the images she took for our party, but also share with you what makes Stephanie Godfrey Photography so awesome in our first vendor spotlight!

Vendor Spotlight: Stephanie Godfrey Photography

I'm Stephanie!

Your business serves what areas? I live in Los Angeles, but often travel for weddings. I love exploring new areas.

How long have you been in business? I’ve been photographing weddings since I graduated from Brooks Institute of Photography in 2006. But last year I decided to go full time and I haven’t looked back. I LOVE my job!!

Why wedding photography? 
I LOVE being a part of that couple’s special day and capturing everything that I know will be a blur to them after the day is over. Plus everyone is so stinking happy, or at least should be!

Favorite photography/wedding event of the year? In March I went to the Utterly Engaged party and The Cream event. Both were so much fun! Everyone I meet is so passionate, creative and inspiring. Since it’s so early in the year, my favorite photo shoot has been an engagement session that I shot at an orchid farm in Oxnard. The location was stunning. You can check it out here and Grey Likes Weddings just did a post about it that you can check out here.

What is your favorite tool of your craft: I love my Canon 5d Mark II. It’s a pretty darn amazing camera. I edit with Lightroom. It makes everything so streamlined.

What is one of your most favorite images you’ve ever shot?  This shot was from a wedding in Sacramento. We walked around old town and around a corner was this perfect spot with amazing light. I could have shot here all day.

You’re about to leave to shoot a wedding – what are 5 things you’ll always have on you? Without stating the obvious, ie: camera, lenses, cf cards, I always have chapstick, gum, Snickers, sewing kit (you never know!), water. 

What sets you apart from other wedding photographers? There’s so many of us, so it’s important to stay true to yourself. I like to capture candid moments. I really like shooting with a 70-200 lens so that I can be incognito. I think it’s the natural moments when you think no one is looking that completes the story.
