Hennessy Photo Co | Non Traditional Wedding and Elopement Photographer
"I’m going to start out by saying Steph was everything our dream photographer would be AND MORE. From first contact, Steph was super communicative. She made the whole inquiry process so easy and approachable. She started out by recording a customized introduction video of herself, which was so amazing. It shed some light about her personality, what it would be like to work with her, and made us feel so at ease! After, she provided us with a full customized layout proposal of the services she offered and how they would fit in to our wedding. My husband and I agreed that we wanted to go meet with her for an in person consult! From the minute that we sat down with her, we knew that not only would we get an amazing photographer for our wedding, but also make a new friend. Steph makes you feel so comfortable on your wedding day! Because of that, our pictures turned out better than we could’ve ever asked for. She was able to capture such amazing candid moments that we will now be able to treasure forever. We also HIGHLY recommend adding on Steph’s short “home video” style reels. It captured all of the special feels that help us relive our wedding day in a sincere, heartfelt, and candid kinda way. I cannot speak enough great words about this amazing person. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day, one to remember."

Describe your business in 1-3 short sentences.
A wedding day as custom as those Vans you hand-sharpied in 2006. Hennessy Photo Co focuses on an alternative wedding approach, for non-traditional couples that are willing to throw the middle finger to the wedding industry and do things their way. Focused on cinematic, story-telling imagery, unique to your story.
Why do you want to work with APW couples?
I work with bada$$ couples that ache for something more true to them than the traditional ideas the wedding industry has for them; couples who would rather experience emotion instead of what is trendy; couples who want to get married authentically, seeking a day that feels and is full of teary-eyes, wind-blown hair, and intimate moments. Your wedding day is a deep commitment–to each other, your futures together, and deserves to be captured to tell your truth, with intention and a story-telling eye. You need someone who sees you–in all your weirdness, goofy, imperfect, in-between moments, to authentically tell your values, your story.
What is your artistic approach to weddings?
My approach to documenting your wedding day focuses on the gritty nostalgia that happens in between, whether you get married alongside all of your friends and family, or alone in a valley that takes your breath away. I am not here to run your day or influence what happens to fit a portfolio-worthy mold. There are photographers that will pose and direct you all night, ensure your hair sits perfectly, and that everyone is always smiling, but I am not that photographer. There’s photographers that will do nothing at all–flies on the wall, but so disconnected from the intimacy of your day that big landscapes will drown out your happy tears.
