Stephanie Bannon Photography

Because this too shall pass.

Tried & True

Stephanie Bannon was referred to me by a friend of mine who is also a photographer. Being recommended by another photographer already spoke volumes as to what I could expect. I contacted other photographers prior to selecting Stephanie, but as soon as I spoke with her my decision was made! We live in Kansas City, but our venue was closer to St. Louis. Stephanie was willing to travel to the city we were getting married, which was an hour drive for her. She traveled there to do our engagement shoot, as well as the wedding. The distance was never an issue. We met her in person for the first time to do our engagement shoot. Stephanie is very laid back and we weren't nervous, or uncomfortable around her ever! We received a package in the mail with our completed photos. What was in that package confirmed that "the little things" don't slip past Stephanie. In fact those little things, that meant the most to me, are what I feel she is the best at capturing. It poured on our wedding day and Stephanie went above and beyond in so many ways. She was our photographer, but she was the one person who helped make me feel as though the rain was just a part of the day, not something to be worried about. I will be forever grateful that we found Stephanie and that she is the one we chose to capture our day. I could go on and on about the little things she did, but the impression she left on me proved that this is her natural born talent, and not just in her picture taking skills.     ~Melanie, June 2014

I cannot even begin to explain how amazing Stephanie Bannon was during our whole wedding planning process. She was fantastic to work with from the very beginning-quick responses to emails, meetings, being so flexible, and giving great advice on locations for both engagement and wedding pictures. Being indecisive as I am-she was always extremely patient and provided the best advice on how to make pictures look natural and fun. Add her on Facebook as well and you will be pleased with updates from your session until you receive your sneak peak slideshows and CD of prints. We highly recommend Stephanie Bannon Photography and promise she will not disappoint. We are so excited to work with her AGAIN this year for my sister's wedding in the fall. Thank you again Stephanie for capturing such memorable moments. You are simply the best.~Crystal, June 2013

Stephanie Bannon was superb! Not only did she take fabulous photos, but she was so great to work with too. She was very laid back and flexible. The day of the wedding she knew what our schedule was supposed to be, and she kept us on track. She made sure everything happened when we wanted it to, and she caught everything on camera. She took charge of the situation when she needed to and always accommodated our wants and needs. Her day-of service was more than we ever expected of our photographer. She was on top of it! We are thrilled with the resulting pictures too! (I need to go out to get a digital frame because I can't just choose one to hang in our house.) She really captured the magic of the day and we will cherish our photos forever more! ~Amy, September 2013

Booking Stephanie Bannon Photography was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding day! Not only did she capture our day perfectly, but she was so easy to work with. From the beginning, she was always prompt to respond to emails and flexible to meet in person. She provided great suggestions regarding photo locations and poses for both engagement and wedding pictures. On the day of the wedding she made sure we managed our time wisely and stuck to the schedule we originally planned. Stephanie was not afraid to take charge to accommodate our wants and needs. Stephanie managed to capture pictures during the ceremony and reception without even realizing she was there. My husband and I are absolutely thrilled with the pictures we received! We look forward to cherishing them for years to come.  ~Caitlin, October 2012

Stephanie is so awesome! My husband and I are soooo indecisive and she helped us every step of the way!! We could not be happier with all of our pictures!! She also made a slideshow that I was able to share on facebook with all of my friends and family! She totally went above and beyond our expectations!! And she has such a unique way of taking pictures and setting up poses. We had so much fun!! Seriously, my husband had fun taking engagement pictures and wedding pictures!! I never thought I would say that!  ~Heather, November 2014

I found Stephanie via the internet, based on reviews like this, so I feel like I should definitely leave one of my own. She is super laid back, very responsive to what you want, and is just a very pleasant person (which, holy moly, some of our other vendors could take a cue from her). Highly recommended.   ~Natalie, October 2014

Stephanie is one of the sweetest and patient photographers I have ever met! My fiancé and my engagement photo shoot was on one of the hottest days of the summer. Stephanie was so patient with me and allowed me to get in the car to cool off and touch up my make up! She made the experience so enjoyable and fun! I though the pictures were going to turn out not so stunning because of how sweaty I was during the shoot. She made the photos look beautiful!!! I would let her take photos of me all day! I cannot wait for her to photograph our big day in September because I know the photos will be amazing! I'd recommend her to anyone looking for a fun, energetic, and creative photographer! Thanks!!!!  ~Haley, September 2014

We used Stephanie for our engagement pictures and our wedding photos. She is incredibly professional and does a fantastic job directing the people she's photographing. All of our pictures looked incredibly beautiful and natural. Our Best Man's wife remarked how professional and efficient Stephanie was and lamented that they hadn't been a little more picky with their own wedding photographer. Stephanie was up for anything that we wanted to do and was very knowledgeable of good places to take pictures in Forest park that wouldn't be overrun with people. I would definitely recommend her!  ~Lauren, May 2014
