The most dedicated and talented wedding photographer we could have ever dreamed to have for our wedding.
Very professional, and his photos speak for themselves.
Our wedding photos look as if they could be in a magazine.
He was very thorough with my wife and I in the months leading up to the wedding, speaking with us so as to include details about how we met and what we like on our photo site (which he built) and in our photos.
I myself work in film and television in Los Angeles, and to be confident on my wedding day that someone with an eye like Stephane was behind the lens gave me great ease.
I couldn't recommend him more!

BEN + ANGELA

It's been almost a year since my wife and I got married here in El Paso, TX and we're very grateful that we had Stephane to be our photographer.
We met with a variety of photographers locally before choosing Stephane and he couldn't have been more professional and endearing.
He demonstrated an interest in our story which was unique and indicated to us that he would take extra care to make this event very special for us.
We weren't just another client.
If we could do it again, there would be no question in our mind that we would use Stephane again.
The photographs turned out incredible and we've received many compliments on the quality and artistry of our wedding album.
Thanks Stephane!!!

My husband and I were looking for unique photos for our engagement and wedding.
We hit the jack pot when we met Stephane!
He was able to understand exactly what we were thinking in our heads and make them come to life!
He turned a freezing and terribly windy day in Marfa into the most beautiful photo shoot!
Thank you for everything Stephane!!

Stephane does amazing work!
My husband and I are so happy we went with him as our wedding photographer because he captured every special moment!
He made us comfortable in front of the camera, which is hard for my husband and I to do.
He is very detailed and his work is absolutely breathtaking.
A friend at our wedding commented on how hard he worked at our wedding because he was running from place to place to capture every special moment (and you would never even know he was there).
The pictures speak for themselves.
Stephane is so talented in what he does and he is worth every penny you spend for that special occasion!
The photography is one of the best investments you will make at your wedding!

We were extremely lucky to find (in El Paso of all places!) and have Stephane as our wedding photographer.
We went through dozens of wedding photographer sites (both in El Paso and Southern California), feeling that all of them seemed bland and typical. When we saw Stephane’s site, we knew right away that we had to have him as our photographer.
He is AMAZING - The love and dedication he has for every snap shot can be seen in every photo.
He not only made our Engagement photo session and Wedding Day fun, he made it memorable by catching the most precious, emotionally intimate moments.
He is not one of those photographers who has a cookie-cutter style for every couple. He understands how each couple is unique, and he exhibits each couple’s personalities in every photo.
There is no one else we would recommend - If you're looking for someone who will take the time and care to capture your most precious, valuable moments of your wedding day, look no further.
Our love and wedding was beautifully captured through the camera lens of Stephane Lemaire.
Stephane, thank you so much!

"I love pictures. I love GOOD pictures. I was looking for a photographer in El Paso and not only there.
Nothing impressed me and I was almost disappointed when I finally got to meet Stephane. It was a blessing!
Needless to say the results were even higher than our expectations!
We highly recommend Stephane's services to everyone who's looking for great professional pictures for life's greatest moments. Because…
Stephane is very professional, punctual, creative, patient, attentive and just nice.
You will even like the way he dresses for your event!
He will do his best to get a result you are looking for (well, maybe even better…) and never disappoint you."

"NEEDLESS TO SAY THE RESULTS WERE EVEN HIGHER THAN OUR EXPECTATIONS! "

MILA + ARIEL

The importance of wedding photography is underscored by how fast the day actually passes!
To that end, Stephane works hard to ensure that the magic of that day will never be forgotten.
We wholeheartedly endorse Stephane for his professionalism, easy-going personality, and masterful eye that seizes an air of timelessness and mystique with every photo.
Stephane proved to us that our wedding is more than just a memory, it was art!
Thank you for a wonderful experience!

"STEPHANE PROVED TO US THAT OUR WEDDING IS MORE THAN JUST A MEMORY, IT WAS ART!"

CHRISTINA + LUIS

"Here is our experience......
Being a Bridezilla, living in San Antonio and planning our wedding in El Paso was nerve wracking but as soon as I contacted Stephane,
I knew I found what I wanted in a photographer.
Stephane took special time to get to know us in every way possible as a couple on a personal level and NOT as another planned staged photo shoot as I experienced with others before. With his truly caring professionalism, we easily planned out every detail of what we wanted for our special day and how we would cherish those memories. From our engagement photos in San Antonio to our last minute Bridal Shots, and the final Big day, he was calm and collected.
Stephane made our wedding experience so exciting and special that we will never forget all that he did for us, even when he didn't have to. He is truly an Angel in Disguise. Every last invested dime was worth what he captured through his camera lens and the photos that we will treasure for a life time.
Stephane Lemaire became a trusted friend that we can always count on for life's most important moments and would highly recommend him to those seeking a photographer to capture their most special moments as well."

"HE IS TRULY AN ANGEL IN DISGUISE "

" When we saw Stephane's website we fell in love with his work.
We could not wait to meet him and see what he had to offer.
Stephane made us feel very comfortable from the beginning.
He is a wonderful human being with an amazing talent that shows through every photograph he takes.
Our family and friends not only loved his work but also his personality and his charisma.
Thank you so much Stephane for all the great memories you captured and for making our wedding truly unforgettable "
