“Beyond my expectations!”

They were so organized that we ran ahead of schedule all day and were able to have some extra time in places and some extra time for me and my husband to slow down and enjoy the day. To top it off, we had a preview back to us in a week with so many amazing pictures already! I can't wait to get the rest of my photos and video in the weeks to come. I highly recommend going with the Axtell's for all of your wedding day needs!

We first heard of Stephanie through my brother and his now wife after they booked with her a year prior. When I got engaged, she was the first photographer I talked to and after looking at a couple of other photographers it was clear to me that I had already found the best. Stephanie and Charles are an amazing team and it was the best decision ever to book with them for both photography and videography.
