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.

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!!!

My wife and I had Stefanie do both our engagement photos and our wedding, and we now count her and her husband as good friends. 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!

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!

My husband and I used Stefanie for our engagement photos and our wedding photos (04/29/2017) and I'm grateful everyday I did. We loved all of our photos! She so comfortable to work with, while being able to capture a montent and turn it into art. Her team for our wedding captured every moment. The difference between a good and great photographer shows and would choose Stefanie again and again.

We’ve sourced Stephanie for both our law firm’s networking events and professional headshots, and we have been thrilled with the service and work product provided. Her style and personality are so authentic that her subjects are immediately put at ease. We love her creativity and artistic ability – her passion for the craft is inspiring. We look forward to working with Stefanie again.

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

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!

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.

Stephanie came and did a first birthday smash cake photoshoot for us and we absolutely loved her! She was so good with our daughter and got so many amazing shots! She was a pure joy to work with!

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!

Stefanie recently photographed our wedding and as you can imagine from the photos posted here - our photos were gorgeous and perfectly capture our special day. However, just as important Stefanie was pleasure to work with - extremely professional, friendly, knowledgable and easy to work with! We were beyond thrilled with the pictures and loved working with her! I would highly recommend Stefanie for all your photography needs!

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.

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!

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*

Company Q&A

What’s the secret to taking a great photograph?

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

What questions might you ask a client when starting a new project?

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.

What do you love most about your job?

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.

What inspired you to start your own business?

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.

Why should our clients choose you?

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.
