TESTIMONIALS

"

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!

So I don’t even know where to begin, there’s so much good to Stephane that I don’t have the words to perfectly express what a great photographer he was.
The beginning process of meeting him to me was so smart and amazing. If you don’t click with your photographer, your pictures just won’t be the same.
He interviews us, basically an about ourselves and we just connected.
He flew all the way to Dallas to take our engagement photos and it was just amazing. He’s so good at creating his vision and we felt very comfortable. Wedding day was amazing, I see my pictures so many times a day because they just come to life, they aren’t posed they are just captured in the perfect moment as they should be.
He’s amazing, and for some expensive, but please understand these are your FOREVER MEMORIES!
It was worth every single penny and if I could just get married again to rehire him I would, obviously with my husband all over again lol! Hire him, you will absolutely not regret it.

Hiring Stephane as our photographer was one of the best decisions that we made for our wedding.
My husband was right in saying that we should spend the extra for a quality photographer on our wedding day since those memories are going to last forever through the photos that he took.
If you're going to have someone shoot your wedding, you want someone with experience, talent, and flexibility. He has all of these characteristics.
He was easy to work with, explained everything well, and took AMAZING photos.
Worth every penny, no regrets!
So glad we went with someone that really knew their stuff. I'd trust him for any other photo needs we have in the future!
What are you waiting for!? Book him!

CANDIE & TONY

As many of you know, weddings are expensive and all the details involved add up very quickly ! So at the top of our list was hiring a good photographer and a great DJ for the reception. You spend months planning your wedding day which really only lasts 13 hours. But when it’s all said and done, the one thing you actually walk away with are the pictures from that special day.
For that reason, we felt that it was crucial to find an amazing photographer to capture the most important day of our lives. After meeting with multiple photographers and even doing an engagement session with another photographer we knew Stephane was the perfect match once we met him. He welcomed us into his home for a meeting to actually get to know us. This was one of the first things that set him apart from other photographers. He was genuinely interested in getting to know us as a couple and hearing our love story. We instantly felt a connection to Stephane, he was friendly, laid back but also confident in his work and very professional. Stephane was confident and very organized. Hiring him was a big investment and he took the job seriously. He was incredible from start to finish. His beautiful photography now decorates the walls in our home. I can’t say enough good things about Stephane. If you hire him, I promise you that you won’t regret it.

"STEPHANE MADE US FEEL VERY COMFORTABLE FROM THE BEGINNING"

TATIANA + RANDY

Working with Stephane was a revelation.
From the very beginning, he brought a most unique blend of professionalism, tirelessness, kindness and perseverance to deliver a product of unmatched quality. He established a strong rapport right away with us, and communicated his goals, while also listening to us deeply. He flew in for our engagement shoot to Minneapolis, and by the time he had met us had completed comprehensive research and scouting to discover the best possible locations. On our wedding day, again, his professionalism and drive was incomparable—they literally did not rest for one moment as they clicked away capturing every single aspect of our day. He had our photos to us much quicker than anticipated. We were just stunned at how well composed, thoughtful, detail oriented and colorful they were. Every shot appeared to capture the true essence of our day. Some of them are pure works of art. We are not exaggerating when we say that working with Stephane is the best decision you will make on your wedding day--he is a genius.

Stephane was amazing to work with!
He is very professional and makes it a point to really get to know you and your significant other at a level where he wants to capture the true moments on your special day.
We live in Chicago, IL and wanted our engagement session here! He made it happen!
On the day of our wedding it really felt like we had a friend with us to capture all of our special moments.
He’s detailed, and when he has a vision you just have to let him have it...
Trust me you will not be disappointed

MIRIAM & ALEX

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 jackpot 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!

"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."
