I had never met Stephanie and was definitely nervous to do my boudoir shoot since I'm a thicker girl and wanted bare more skin than I'm used to. She made me feel SO comfortable in my own skin and I truly felt incredibly sexy. The finished photos are phenomenal and I loved that they were sent to me digitally. I'd highly recommend her to anyone looking for an extremely talented and down to earth photographer
Can't say enough about Stephanie and Stella Lu. Thank you for making me feel comfortable, confident, and for thinking of every little detail. Your turnaround time was phenomenal. From the moment I got in contact to book to the moment Stephanie sent me the digital proofs, I felt confident that I was in the best hands. Thank you Steph!!!!
Stephanie is very professional, but also very fun! We had music going and laughed the whole time which made me feel at ease. I have had professional headshots taken as well as boudoir photos and I loved how they turned out. She knows how to position you to get the best angles and shots, and she has an eye for how to use light and shadow to highlight your best features. I would highly recommend to call Stella Lu if you need photos taken!
My boyfriend and I did a fall photo shoot with her and had a blast! Such good energy and definitely made us feel comfortable even with the mushy kissing. Can't wait to book her for our next photo shoot!
Steph is AMAZING, she went above and beyond on my photoshoot. I’ve never felt more comfortable, we met for the first time at the shoot and she felt like a long time friend. Her bubbly and funny personality made the shoot fun and exciting. She made me feel empowered and beautiful. Definitely will book and shoot with her again!
Stephanie is fantastic! This was my first time doing a photoshoot, so I was slightly nervous, but she made me feel extremely comfortable (which is very hard to do) and the pictures turned out amazing! She was very accommodating and made sure we got all of the shots on my list even if that meant moving around to a few different locations (in the same area). I tend to have high expectations with most things and Stephanie by far exceeded them. I also shouldn't leave out that she was sick with the flu all week prior to our shoot and still managed to do it despite still not feeling 100%. If you're looking to hire a photographer in the San Diego area, then I highly recommend you trying Stephanie!
Stephanie is by far the best person to shoot with. She always has her clients best interest and wants to make her client feel confident and comfortable. She’s bubbly so it makes taking the photos so much more fun. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to take boudoir photos, wedding photos, and overall any photos! She also gives you so many photos after the shoot, more than I have received from anyone else I have worked with. Her pricing is also very affordable. Overall, best photographer in San Diego!
5 stars isn't enough for this chick! For the record, I have taken boudoir photos at least 15× over 10 years and always felt my pics could have been better.. NONE have compared to the work of the Stella Lu Co. Stephanie is naturally gifted at getting the most flattering images of your natural beauty. What started out as a boudoir shoot ended up feeling like a high fashion pro shoot! I will continue to work with Stephanie and highly recommend her services to anyone who is new or experienced with boudoir photography. She will bring out your best and make you feel confident and amazing from beginning to end. I've already booked a second shoot in 2 weeks and can't wait to get in front of lens.
Every time I work with Stephanie I have a phenomenal experience. She is so professional and makes you feel So safe and right at home. She is FANTASTIC at capturing such special moments. Just recently my husband and I did a shoot with her, and he is usually not a fan of being in front of the camera, and she was able to bring out his best qualities and he really enjoyed it which is a God send. 100% she’s the only photographer I want to take all my special pictures with.
Stephanie always takes the most amazing photos while making me feel so comfortable and very relaxed. She makes every photo a great time. She knows exactly what I want from my photos before I even know. She is very prepared and has a plan of what she's doing next. Also very spontaneous and can be inspired by anything. I love the way she can work with a group of people to achieve lots of beautiful shots as well as being even better working with one person. I always call Stella Lu when I need any pictures done. She is extremely flexible and also has a lot of ideas I didn't even think of. Much love.
Stephanie was a dream to work with! Professional, responsive and always thinking outside the box. Not only is she creative, but the turn around time on getting our pictures back to us was phenomenal! We will definitely be working with her again for all our future photo shoots!
Stella Lu photography is fantastic! Stephanie has such an eye for detail and beauty- it sincerely amazes me! She captures everything beautifully and ensures that your wishes come true. She stays tuned into what you're looking for and ANSWERS ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. My wedding day was all captured in her photos and I'm so glad because it went by SO fast. I am able to relive my favorite day because of her. If you haven't booked her yet, do so yesterday. You won't regret it!
