We Love Stefy Hilmer Photography

Published 01/17/2019

Stefy truly LOVEs what she does! The most rewarding thing for her is her couples reactions when they get to see their wedding photos. 

How did you get started in the wedding business?
I have been a photographer for a while but never thought it would bring me so much joy photographing moments and telling people's stories. It was a process. But I started my career as a newspaper photographer back in Germany.

What do you do when you are not working? 
I love to be outdoors with my family, play tennis or sail.

How would you describe your approach to weddings?
I love to tell stories and document what is happening throughout the day. I don't interfere at all unless for portraits.

What inspires you in your work?
I love to tell stories and document what is happening throughout the day. I don't interfere at all unless for portraits.

What sets you apart from other wedding photographers?
Capturing the moments that are happening in front of me versus creating them with an artistic twist to it. I love moody colors and unusual angles and the fact that you can do so much with light. I always try to push the boundaries in terms of looking at a scene differently.

Coolest thing you've seen at a wedding?
The mother of the bride rapping her speech! 

Best piece of advice for couples planning their wedding?
Book the vendors you love and you connect with to make sure you can enjoy your wedding day, knowing you are in good hands.


From the elegant to the rustic to the extravagant, she captures the authentic. With a contemporary style, her photographs combine documenting the feelings and emotions of your journey including your engagement, preparation leading to the ceremony and celebration itself, where she will create a timeless piece of art to hang in your home. Everyone has a story. Let Stefy tell yours,
