St Albans Photographer Reviews

Stephanie has transformed our creative with images packed with natural personality. Her ability to put people at ease and capture the moment has enabled us to convey so much through our print and digital marketing. Stephanie is a joy to work with, professional, flexible and full of ideas.

Dawn West

Senior Brand Marketing Manager, Hatfield House

Stephanie took my headshot photo and also an action shot, during a networking event. Both images were fantastic and I’ve used them a lot in my marketing. Stephanie made me feel at ease and helped me to get the right shot, I’ve received so many compliments from the photos but they are also very professional looking so perfect for business use. I would highly recommend Stephanie if you are looking for some professional high-quality photos.

Rebecca Youngs

Social Media & Content Executive

Stephanie is a terrific photography teacher and photographer full stop. She has a natural way of getting the most out of her subject and the results speak for themselves.

Stephanie’s professional headshots are not only nice to have for social media accounts but essential really when it comes to ensuring your customers see you as confident, trustworthy, knowledgeable and friend – all from our photo!! I love the headshot Stephanie did of me.

Jonathan Channing

Director, JC Property Consultancy Limited

Stephanie has a phenomenal eye for moments and can accurately provide content to any brief. I have used her services personally for a headshot but also professionally for events, markets, festivals, generic street and landscape photography and seasonal atmospheric shoots too. She nails the brief time after time, providing usable, edited and seemingly unstaged photographs that get brought out time and again. Cannot recommend her enough.

Helen Burridge

Sustainable Business Collaborator

Stephanie recently completed the photography for our company enabling us to renew our website and marketing documents with new current images of our workplace, employees and vehicles. She was exceptionally accommodating, flexible and effective in carrying out the work. We are delighted with the results and look forward to having them shown in our marketing.

Ian Kidd

Finance Director, Furnell Transport

I’ve just had my portrait taken by Stephanie for a new website.  She was amazing from start to finish.  I hate having my photo taken, but from the moment I walked through the door, Stephanie put me at ease.  She really listened to the brief and the final photos were fantastic, with a good selection to choose from.  The service was also great, with a quick response to e-mails and an easy booking system.

Overall, a great experience and one I would highly recommend to others needing top-quality photography.

I have been following Stephanie’s work on social media for a while, as she is well-known in the local business community. This year, I decided to get some new headshots done for my social media and website. As expected, Stephanie exceeded my expectations, she’s a very talented photographer. Stephanie makes you feel relaxed and natural and her home studio is lovely. We were able to use different settings and light to get that perfect shot. I am very happy with my photos and would highly recommend Stephanie to anyone thinking of refreshing their corporate photos.

Maria Isaeva

CFA, St. James’s Place Wealth Management

Stephanie has taken family photographs and corporate shots for me. She is equally good at both and manages to capture the essence of the group/the person.

She is lovely to work with and her turnaround times are incredibly fast. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Stephanie was great to work with. Right from the off when she showed an interest in who I am, what I am about and what I wanted to get across through my pictures, initial research she that she did and right through to how the shoot worked. Having my photo taken (especially for 'work' shots) isn't exactly top of my list of great experiences...but Stephanie made it easy and I was really surprised how much I enjoyed the experience! The results are exactly what I wanted to. Highly recommend whatever photos you need. Stephanie will put you at ease and deliver great service and photos. Bravo Stephanie!

Stephanie's photos of me are both stunning and on point. She was seamlessly professional and I quickly felt at ease whilst she gently directed me. She was committed to capturing more than a smile and the photos also show the energy of my character too.The information and support before the day meant I went prepared. I took a variety of outfits, jewellery and props and Stephanie helped me choose the right elements for the look and feel of the different photos I wanted for my business marketing.I am over the moon with the results and cannot recommend her and her work highly enough.

I did a professional photoshoot with Stephanie and from booking to getting the photos, every step was simple and I achieved what I wanted. Stephanie listened to me and brought to life what I had in mind. The photos were so gorgeous I ended up buying 3 as I couldn't choose just one.

Stephanie was a delight to work with!

Stephanie is an exceptional professional photographer, so friendly, instantly felt at ease and helped me to get the most natural smile for my corporate headshot. Stephanie already helped my husband with a corporate picture last year and made a huge difference in his job search. Highly recommended for professional results, very quick to process and deliver.

Prior to choosing Stephanie as my photographer, I was looking around the three counties to find who I could work well with to take the perfect headshot for my new business start up. I came across Stephanie's website and went through the booking form which was nice and easy. Today, I had my appointment and certainly do not regret my decision as Stephanie is friendly and professional. Within the day I got my photos back and even my partner was more then impressed to the point that she will be booking in her services once she starts up her food business.Thank you Stephanie for all of your hard work!!

Having my business headshot photos taken by Stephanie was great fun! She put me at ease (I'm not the biggest fan of having my picture taken) and the resulting pics are fab. She was great at thinking about how I might use them and ensured I had a range suitable for my website and social media. Thanks so much!

Stephanie was absolutely brilliant! From the initial consultation where she gave me lots to go and think about and answered questions I didn’t even realise I had (!), to the photoshoot itself where she got the brief spot on and made me feel completely at ease. I’ll be using her again - Absolutely fantastic service!

I was after some high quality headshots, with a fast turnaround, and Stephanie came to the rescue. Prior to the shoot, she gave helpful suggestions on what to wear and what kind of impression I wanted to achieve with my picture. She created a relaxed atmosphere, didn't rush the shoot, and emailed a great selection to choose from. Thank you, Stephanie!

Stephanie is fantastic.I think there are two key ingredients to being a great photographer. One is having the technical skills with the camera, lighting, etc. The other is having fun with the person being photographed and really putting them at ease so that the photos look very natural.Many photographers are good at the first part, but not so good at the second.Stephanie is truly brilliant at both.

Stephanie was fantastic. I'm one of those people who doesn't enjoy having their photo taken and she put me at ease straight away. Very professional and super efficient, Stephanie managed to take a good variety of excellent business and causal headshots in a short session. Her 'studio' offers a variety of backgrounds and her technical expertise means the lighting is perfect.Later the same day Stephanie provided a good selection of shots for me to choose from. The results were significantly better than expected and so I ended up taking them all!Highly recommended whether you like having your photo taken or not. :)

Stephanie is amazing. One of her key strengths is the way she breaks down technical information in a very simple and digestible way. She is incredibly helpful, approachable and fantastic at making things look achievable rather than scary. Thank you for providing me with a new set of skills which I'm looking forward to putting into practise - I'm very grateful for your help.

We hired Stephanie twice - first for the bump to baby package, and then again when our son turned a year old. She is an outstanding photographer and I cannot recommend her enough. She has a way with children, and our son was immediately at ease in her presence, allowing her to click some amazing pictures. Those images adorn our house today, and we're so glad that we decided to hire Stephanie.

After using Stephanie to shoot our first bump to baby photos we had to ask her to come back and shoot our 2nd- she is just totally fab!Stephanie made us feel totally at ease and really managed to capture the character of our 3 year old too. All the photos are very natural as they are in our own home setting, and she manages to get us all feeling really relaxed and bring out our ‘bests sides’.The photos are all amazing and as we couldn’t choose only a few we had to buy the whole package. Thank you so much for all our lovely photos.

Stephanie is a fantastic photographer. She made us feel relaxed, comfortable and at ease. She is also an excellent and prompt communicator. The photos were amazing, we absolutely loved them. She did such a job editing and though she took loads of photos, she sent us the very best selection which didn’t overwhelm us and we absolutely loved every single one. We would absolutely recommend Stephanie and use her again without a second thought.

I am very happy with the result and would definitely recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for photography services.

Just finished Stephanie's Corporate Masterclass (headshots, personal branding & team photos) and just wanted to post a review here to rave about how helpful it was!I really feel like I know what I'm doing now in relation to setting up this arm of my business!Stephanie has this amazing way of explaining complex subjects really simply. And because she teaches the framework for operating in, it means my creativity can flourish within that.If you're thinking about doing this or any of Stephanie's other training, you'll see a return on investment immediately! Book her today!

Stephanie is very friendly, is great at putting people at their ease (even if, like me, they hate having their picture taken,) listened to my needs and concerns and worked really hard to meet the needs of the project brief (and surpassed my expectations!)

I can't recommend Stephanie Belton highly enough. I had a 1 to 1 class with her for 2 hours. Stephanie explained the functions/terms in a way that anyone (even someone as technically challenged as myself) can understand without it being an information overload session. It was interesting and fun and I will definitely be taking more classes with her!

This is the second time I went to Stephanie for my professional photos. What I really value is that she takes the few words I give her in terms of how the photo should look and she sets the shoot up to achieve it. In today's business, having a strong personal visual identity is so key and the right picture that's in date is key. I'd highly recommend Stephanie to anyone working or living in the st Albans and London areas.
