My husband and I had an amazing time working with Stefanie. She's great at disappearing into the background and always being right there. She's super open and flexible, but great at telling you what to do for more formal shots, which I really appreciated because if I'm not told what to do I just default to looking anxious and confused. We had an amazing day with her and would definitely recommend her to everyone! More...

I first worked with Stefanie during my best friends wedding. Once I got engaged I knew she was the photographer I wanted to capture our day. Getting your pictures taken for 8 hours can get awkward at times but Stefanie goes with the flow, she can rangle a group of rowdy groomsman like no other and her pictures speak for themselves. My favorite thing about her pictures are that I still look like myself, she doesn't use heavy editing/filters like we see on the internet these days. I can't wait to work with Stefanie again!

Having Stefanie take our wedding photos was by far the best decision we made for our wedding! She made us so comfortable and took photos that made us look like incredible. We can’t wait for another excuse to hire Stefanie again! More...

Stefanie Haviv was our photographer for our wedding in November 2017. Stefanie and I met at the Carolina Bridal Expo and immediately connected. Her work spoke for itself- modern, playful, candid and gorgeous. It was exactly the type of look we were going for when we began our search for a photographer. From the very first meeting, Stefanie took our vague thoughts about what we wanted and made them into fresh, interesting, unique and beautiful photos that felt every bit “us”. When we told her that we had an idea for our engagement shoot to eat pizza on the couch, she transformed this idea into a gorgeous shoot on her parent’s farm, with us in our PJ’s on a couch in the middle of a beautiful field eating pizza while wrapped in a blanket. (Oh, and there happened to be baby goats so we took some photos with them, too :)) This, along with a more traditional engagement session took all day and Stefanie took so much time with us, grabbing frame after frame of beautiful and unique perspectives. She was super responsive, and her work came back to us quickly, as well, perfectly edited and was happy to have us share them with those we love. Stefanie was an absolute joy to have as our photographer, making sure every photo we requested for our wedding day was taken and plenty of shots of not only us, but our friends and family, as well, which was a joy to see. Along with the more traditional shots, she is not afraid to take risks with her photos which is where some of the more artistic and playful shots come from- my husband and I are huge fans of these! Stefanie is a true professional- courteous, compassionate, incredibly relatable and a real talent. I consider it an honor that my husband and I were able to have her capture these moments with us and I look forward to having her capture many more.

As a bride, my top four priorities for my vendors were Price, Quality of Service, Responsiveness, and Consistency with our Vision: Price: 5*, Quality of Service: 5*, Responsiveness: 5*, Vision: 5*, Overall: 5*

I hired Stefanie to shoot my wedding day (1/12/18) at the courthouse - with the caveat that she couldn't actually shoot the ceremony because cameras aren't allowed in the Mecklenburg County Courthouse. We met with Stefanie before the wedding to brainstorm where we could go to get some cool urban/Charlotte shots and how to incorporate our guests into the photos after the ceremony.

A few days before the wedding, I emailed Stefanie with the realization that it was going to be raining. She completely reassured me and we made plans to have umbrellas available with some back-up locations at the ready.

The day of the wedding, Stefanie guided us at a variety of locations (some rainy, some just overcast) for romantic shots, family photos, group shots and friends photos. Even when it was raining and seemed dreary outside, she would show me a photo now and then and reassure me that the weather would make outstanding photos.

The final product was amazing - she caught our wedding day and our friends and family in a perfect way. Hiring her was one of our best wedding planning decisions!

Words honestly can’t describe the amazing work Stefanie does. My (now) husband and I are total goof balls and I was honestly worried we’d never get a good photo of us together. We met Stefanie and had our engagement session and all the weight was lifted off my shoulders. Not only were we instantly comfortable in front of her (a rare thing for us) she managed to capture our goof-ball-ness but also our romantic side. Wedding day came and it was like she was part of the family. She took stunning shots of us alone and together that made me feel like magizine Cover worthy!! The candid photos she captured bring me right back as if it was happening all over again; I laughed, I cried, I felt all the love all over again. I’m honored to have had her as our photographer and will be forever grateful her photos will hang on my walls for the rest of my life. More...

Stefanie has done tons of beautiful food photography with me. She also did my engagement photos, which are the most unique and coolest I've ever seen. She then did my wedding photography, maternity photos, as well as newborn pictures of my first child. I will use her incredible skills for every photography need that I ever have. I am in love with her creativity, beautiful work and fun attitude. More...

Being able to capture a moment in time as a photographer takes real talent and Stefanie Haviv has proven to be a true master. She quietly goes about her work and then presents incredible images for us to use in our marketing projects. Her willingness to look at things differently is one of the main reasons we chose her to work with us. She's a delight to work with and we are always are excited to see what she has come up with.

After seeing some of Stefanie's incredible work, I booked her to do my fiancé and my Engagement shoot and it was such an incredible experience! We are both a little more shy and didn't exactly know what we wanted. Stefanie was excellent at identifying our style and personality and helped us create the shoot that truly expressed us. Her ease, humor, and professionalism made the whole experience so much fun and we couldn't have been more delighted with the result. Her talent for photography is incredible but one thing I appreciate so much about Stefanie is the way she understands people. Her creativity allows her to understand who she is photographing, so you get phenomenal photos that express who you are. I couldn't be more appreciative of her and we can't wait to have her photograph our wedding! More...

Super late on this. But Stephanie and her other shooters are AMAZING!! Through the whole planning process Stephanie understood our vision and captured each detail of our engagement and wedding day perfectly. I'm extremely camera shy, Stephanie and her team always made me feel very comfortable and like we hanging out with old friends. When talking with Stephanie is very easy to see how her art is her passion. Anyone can snap some photos, but Stephanie captured our wedding day in true artist fashion. I love every single photo from that day. I couldn't be more grateful and I recommend her to anyone I hear needing a photographer. Will definitely be using her in the future. More...

Stefanie is the BOMB! I can't say enough how amazing she is. When my fiancé and I started to look for photographers for our wedding we decided to go with someone who we felt comfortable with and who knew what we wanted before we did. She is super professional as well as fun. We can't wait to see our photos. If you need a photographer for anything, hire this woman. You will NOT be disappointed! More...

She did great making my son comfortable and still getting the shots this emotional mom wanted . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED using Stefanie !!!! More...

My family got together for the first time in many years this past Christmas and I really wanted to capture the experience and joy of it. It doesn't happen that often.
Knowing Stefanie and her amazing photography with Amelie's I decided she would be the perfect person to come up to the house and take photos while blending in to the party and not making us feel like we were on a photo shoot.
My entire family loved her. She made everyone feel so comfortable with her and they were really enjoying it. The kids were loving it and showing off for the camera. Every time I turned around I could see Stefanie capturing the laughter, the intimate conversations and those sweet tender moments with my 82 year old father and his grandchildren. That is why I love her work. You talk with Stefanie before your event and simply tell her what story you are looking to tell from the days event and she will create the magic. We are so happy! I would highly recommend Stefanie for family shoots, reunions, weddings, etc.
Stefanie went above and beyond what we expected.
AMAZING!

She went above and beyond for every crazy idea we had throughout, and was just as excited as we were to do it all! I'm also not naturally comfortable in front of a camera but Stefanie did an amazing job making me lighten up and have fun with the process. We could never thank her enough! More...

LOVE HER and her work!!! Not only is Stefanie so amazing at what she does, but she is also so great and easy to work with!! Photography for our wedding was high on our priority list, but we still had a budget. I met stefanie at a wedding expo and loved her work she had displayed and loved her personality even more! She did our engamanet session as well as our wedding. The photos are incredible. Tons of beautiful candids and romantic shots. She captured every detailed moment perfectly! Her second shooter for our wedding day was great, too! We’re able to look back on a day that was a blur for us and see all of the gorgeous details. I’d recommend stefanie over and over again!!!

Stefanie is a brilliant, artistic, photographer with a beautiful personality. I can not think of one thing I dislike about this amazing women! When I was looking for a photographer, these were the things that matter most to me; creativity, able to give direction, organized, and consistent quality photos. Stefanie surpassed all of these things! Not only is she a wonderful photographer, she is just a fun person and it's hard not to click with her immediately! Stefanie is able to find beauty in the most unexpected places, which translates into unique, yet stunningly, gorgeous photos.
On our wedding day it felt like a close friend taking our photos and she put us at ease! She was also extremely organized and kept us on schedule. I had ZERO worries on my wedding day because she just knows what she's doing and she's wonderful at it. She captured key moments with such sensitivity. She is also great at making you and your guests relax so you don't get that "posed prom look" or "deer in the headlight" pictures. My wedding party and guests absolutely loved her! Don't worry about not being photogenic, she will make you laugh and smile naturally! We were beyond thrilled with our photos. She was able to capture perfect pictures and created AMAZING photos out of the most simple things. She really sees things differently and has a stellar eye for the best picture. I got married in the mountains on a lake and in some pictures it looked like I got married in the tropics. Those pictures were so amazing! It was so cool to see what her unique eye can find and what she can do with lighting and shadows.
Understand that on your wedding day you are spending the entire day with your photographer, make sure you have someone as wonderful as Stefanie. We felt so blessed and grateful to work with her, and I currently recommend her to everyone!

Stefanie went above and beyond for us from the very beginning. She made both of our families very relaxed and comfortable and was able to catch achingly beautiful intimate moments without intruding. The kids were very receptive to her as well. She took unique shots that ended up being some of our favorites. While being completely relatable, you can tell that she is a pro from the very first consultation. We have gotten fantastic reactions from everyone who has seen our photos. She was able to capture one of my wife and her dad that is HANDS DOWN one of the most sincerely beautiful wedding shots I have ever seen. Don't look anywhere else. Stefanie is your photographer.

Stefanie Haviv is both professional and the quality of her work is Top Notch. During the Bridal Portraits, I believe that our daughter gained a new friend. She made Nicole feel comfortable and relaxed. Her eye for just the right lighting, backdrop, pose, etc. is astounding. The photos of the big day are being praised by every one not only in the bridal party but from all of our guests. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend Stefanie to anyone needing a Photographer for any occasion. More...

Stefanie was amazing! She is passionate about her work and it shows! She is willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot, and really takes time to get to know and understand her clients. She is always professional and kind and makes you feel valued as a client. You aren't just another wedding to add to her books. She was really flexible with her time, and always responded to my texts, calls, emails in a timely manner. Oh, and shes affordable!! Serious bonus points there. It was important to us to find someone who would de a great job, but without having to compromise our budget....and without losing the quality of service. Stefanie was the perfect woman for the job!

Q&A

When composition, light and subject matter all click together, a fierceness inside will guide us to the right photograph.

I like to get to know my client. What do they do for a living, what do they do for fun.. do they like walking in the park or jogging around the city? It really depends on the project to what information I need, but it's important to me that my work reflects my client honestly. Equally important, my work must also deliver the quality and style the client was looking for.

It is beyond fun. I love meeting new people, shooting different locations and the challenge of producing great work no matter where I am shooting.

I was working with another studio for a few years but I knew that in order to develop my own style I needed to branch off on my own. It was scary at first but it was a good move and I am beyond thrilled with how much SHP has grown over the years.

I'm professional, fun to work with, great at connecting with my clients and I have the trained eyes of a photographer who loves telling stories through the lens.
