5 years ago I was in your shoes.
Planning a wedding on a tight budget & anxiously awaiting the day I married my husband. April 26th 2014, would be the day I married the man who I'd been together with for 5 years.
I had so much to plan, and hardly any time to plan it. Our engagement was a short 4 months, so finding the dress, venue, photographer, and everything in between had to be done quickly.
My groom, like most of y’all’s was a real big help in planning too! He definitely didn’t make me feel like I was planning it alone. Hah!
The reality is, my wedding wasn’t as stressful as I thought it would be.
I loved every moment of it, but if it weren’t for the photos I would only remember half of it... maybe.
My mission statement is simple.
I created Stephanie Rios Photography because I love weddings. I love to capture the beginning of a family, and be reminded of the day my family began.
I've been exactly where you are.
You’ve spent years thinking about how you would share this moment with your other half, and how perfect it would all be.
Now you’re worried about your photographer. Will they be friendly, or will they just get in the way? Will you feel like they were a part of your wedding, or will you quickly forget who they were?
As your photographer I will be with you the most. You deserve the absolute best. That’s why I want to make sure I’m the right choice for you.
I don’t take on every wedding I’m approached to shoot, because it’s extremely important that I work with the right bride & groom, and them with me.
