Based here on the beautiful Isle of Wight, my approach to weddings is relaxed and informal but highly professional. My goal is to deliver top quality images that will be treasured forever.
I have photographed hundreds of weddings over the past 22 years. My background of professional press photography and my work within the commercial industry helps to keep my ideas fresh and exciting. I have travelled to shoot weddings in Europe, all over the UK and to venues across the Isle of Wight. I have a natural instinct to capture real life and adore recording beautifully lit images.
I take wedding photography very seriously and my clients are hugely important to me, but love to have fun while I’m working. I appreciate it’s a big responsibility to be a wedding photographer and can honestly say I put everything into taking pictures of my client’s big day. I love working with people and know it’s important to communicate well with them. I am lucky to have met some amazing couples and many revisit me years after their wedding for subsequent shoots.
One of the biggest compliments I receive is ‘we forgot you were there’. I know when to be in the right place at the right time, but I prefer to keep my presence understated. I can take charge and organise group shots if you would like me to, but I am more than happy to blend quietly in with your day. I’m proud to say I get the most gorgeous thank you messages that can bring a tear to my eye. scroll down to read a few testimonials:
My fees are simple and straightforward. You can go ‘all out’ and have me for the day, or you can have something more modest. I believe everyone should be able to have a lasting memory of their wedding day.

“They are totally amazing!!!!! I love love love them! You worked so hard at making sure we got all the right shots and I think you are absolutely lovely and it was like having a friend there with us… Feels like have known you for ages!”
“Thank you so much for the beautiful and wonderful photos of our wedding day! We are so pleased with all of them and have received so many lovely compliments about them too. It’s exactly how we had envisaged the memories being captured and exactly what we wanted! We can’t thank you enough!!!”

“Chris and I loved the photos from our wedding. The photos of our daughter are stunning, and the way you lit so many of them is beautiful. Lots of our guests commented about the way in which you blended seamlessly into the proceedings, both in terms of taking the group shots and during the speeches. Most of us were unaware you were even there until we saw the photos! That I’m sure is down to your skill and experience, but it has produced some great and very funny shots. Thank you for helping to make our day so perfect, and for capturing the memory of it so beautifully.”

“Stephanie took our wedding pictures and they were superb. She is extremely knowledgeable and put us at ease straight away. Thanks Stephanie for making us laugh and putting us at ease.”

“She was incredible. I (bride) was extremely anxious about the photography for such an important day as I am quite a self-conscious person, but Stephanie was professional and friendly from the start and put me at ease. The photos were fantastic, and captured the spirit and excitement of the day. I really can recommend her to anyone wanting not just fabulous photos but a great and friendly service.”

“I have used Stephanie Mackrill for my wedding, family portraits with my first child and most recently with my second child. Her photos have always been fantastic, so much so that I find it hard to choose! Her friendly professional approach has guaranteed that I won’t use anybody else, even if it means travelling to the Isle of Wight!”

Thank you so much for getting our disc of our photos to us so quickly. We’ve only had a quick look in amongst packing for the honeymoon, but what we have seen are absolutely fantastic. I actually got quite emotional looking at them, you’ve captured some really beautiful shoots. We will definitely be recommending you to everyone!!

We really enjoyed having her at our wedding as she is so easy to get along with and lots of people also commented on how professional and friendly she was!

“We absolutely LOVE the photos Stephanie took. We are so pleased and I am so glad Stephanie proved to us that wedding photos can be good (after my sister experiences). We both really loved how Stephanie took the photos, told us what to do and made us feel comfortable. An enjoyable experience :-).”
