about SBP

Oh, hey, it's me! I look really put-together in this photo, but in my normal day-to-day you can find me in my yoga pants and one of the 5 different v-neck tees that I maybe bought in all the colors (when you find something you like, you cherish it, am I right?). I'm the main photographer behind Stephanie Bartman Photography, and Jared, my husband of 7 years, is my trusty side kick - ahem, partner. Our primary focus is natural-light wedding and engagement photography, but we can't say no to some newborn or family sessions now and then. SBP is based in Central Illinois, but if you're getting married in some lovely non-Midwest location, please take us with you!

my family

This is us—my husband, Jared, our two sons Henry (6) and Ari (2), and me. Plain and simple, these humans are the guiding light and driving force of everything Stephanie Bartman Photography. Our little family of four is 100% supported by this beautiful photography adventure I get to call my job.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

Your wedding day is likely the biggest event you and your fiancé have ever planned, and it's our mission to ensure that every painstaking detail you put into it is preserved through the pictures from your day. We want you to look back at your photos 5, 10, 50 years from now and actually FEEL the emotions you felt that day. 
Whether it's your mom ugly-crying when she sees you in your dress for the first time, the first kiss, or your best man taking tequila shots 5 minutes before he's supposed to give a toast, we want to be there to capture it all. If you connect with that, we'd love to third wheel and capture your sweet love and emotion.

All other types of sessions are $350. These include newborn, children, family and senior. I tend to take a more candid/lifestyle approach to these sessions, but I make sure to always get some "smiling at the camera" ones, too.

Stephanie was incredible to work with for our engagement and wedding photography! My husband and I loved the way that she always made us feel special and comfortable, allowing the perfect balance between posed photos and candid, natural shots. Her heart for her couples, her professionalism, her encouraging, warm personality, and her talent truly shine through the photos she captures. Stephanie was an absolute GIFT to work with, and I would highly recommend her! Jimmy and I will cherish these for years to come!

Stephanie went above and beyond to make our day perfect! She photographed my brother and sister-in-law's wedding and I loved her so much that I booked her for my own that same night! Stephanie has the sweetest personality and immediately feels like an old friend. Both Stephanie and her husband, Jared, are so relaxed behind the camera and always have an eye for that perfect shot. I am so pleased with our choice to have Stephanie Bartman Photography shoot our wedding - our pictures are to die for!!!

Stephanie and Jared are AMAZING! Rudy and I went through our wedding pictures last night and just...wow, seriously. The pictures made me smile, laugh, cry and smile some more; they are absolutely beautiful. We can't thank Stephanie and Jared enough for being such an important part of our day. It felt more like they were a part of the wedding party/guest list than our photographers. You both made us feel so comfortable and at ease the entire day. I think I've literally looked through all of the pictures...at least 4 times - obsessed!!! We just love you guys!!

Can I be cliché and say, Stephanie deserves 1000 stars?! Because it's the truth. Stephanie was right there, taking every moment in with me. I cry each and every time I look at our pictures. From when Riley and I read our letters to each other, to when I cried when I saw my dad for the first time, to when Riley was trying not to cry as I walked down the aisle. She captured every raw emotion. Even the emotions I didn't get a chance to see.

Stephanie did such a great job perfectly capturing our day! I cry every time I look at our photos. Stephanie was very responsive to us and even on our tight timeline she was able to do such a great job. She was so helpful with planning and was so fun to work with. She made the formal photos a smooth process that went very quickly, which is extremely hard to do with big families and wedding party. I can’t thank her enough for all the hard work she did!

Daniel and I can't begin to thank Stephanie enough for all of the stunning photos that she captured for us. She was so kind and easygoing and knew exactly how to get us laughing and smiling. When we got the photos, I actually started sobbing at work! She caught moments between Daniel and I that are so beautifully genuine. We adore every one! Thank you so much for all of the time and effort you put into giving us the most memorable photos.
