Steph Grant’s unique talent is evident when you simply glance at her portfolio. Her work has a signature “look” that draws the viewer’s attention, yet her attentiveness to each client allows individual outcomes to be distinct. The traits of Steph’s images that drew us to following her work include: the bold commercial quality, the colors that exude, her clients’ poses, and the happiness that radiates from clients in each session. It was an easy decision not to shop around for other photographers and simply wait until the time was right to work with Steph. When we discovered her, it seemed as if hiring THEE Steph Grant to shoot our family or marriage would be far into the future. However, our paths crossed sooner than we could have ever expected or hoped! Working with Steph far exceeded any expectations we had (which were already high). Upon initial contact she was prompt in her responses, accommodating, and even excited and joyful about us all working together. The actual day of our session couldn’t have gone any better! It was the first day we had all ever met – even though Steph generously offered a chance to Face Time beforehand. Steph made us feel extremely comfortable with her friendliness, positivity, and enthusiasm. These are all critical for a day of a photo shoot! She also took the lead as the unofficial director of the day, since we had no specific poses or shots in mind. The elements even took a turn for the worse, but Steph was completely un-phased by that…it actually motivated her! She dealt with the wind, rain, fog, cold, and more – all the while encouraging us to go for shots that others may have avoided all together. The day was perfect and no words could ever capture the magnitude of everything that happened. As for our post-shoot experience, Steph was frequently keeping us up to date on the status our final package – even sending us glimpses of what it was looking like. There was no discomfort associated with wondering what it would look like, yet she left room for us to be very and pleasantly surprised in the end! We received a priority mail package and an online album within the agreed upon timeline. We can’t go one day without looking at all of the beautiful images. There aren’t a couple, a few, or even just 10 good final photos…there are too many to count. While Steph likely can’t accept any and every job that comes her way, those of us lucky enough to have worked with her truly are the lucky ones. Even though she’s already been featured by many media outlets, keep an eye out for bigger and better things to come from Steph Grant Photography.
