We also know firsthand how stressful planning a wedding is! We both did most of the planning for our weddings ourselves. It's super exciting, but we also know it can be pretty overwhelming! You've been dreaming about this day your whole life and it's finally here! It is our hope that we can make the photography part of the planning process simple & easy for you so that you can relax & enjoy the experience!
Our highest priority is giving the best photographic experience possible to our clients. To do this, it's all about the relationship! You'll have a smooth wedding day when you TRUST your photographers and believe that they have your best interests at heart. We'll be with you every step of the way from helping you plan your timeline, choosing portrait locations, & helping you feel your best in front of the camera.
We're Stephanie Darbyshire & Christi Johnson, and we're sisters-in-law and the owners of Stephanie & Christi Photography! We're so glad you're here! Truly! We firmly believe that getting to know our clients is the BEST way to ensure that they have an amazing experience. So we'd love to tell you a bit about us!
Christi joined the family in 2017 when she married Stephanie's little brother, Matt. Stephanie & Matt have 6 other siblings! Together there are 21 kids in the family and counting! When we all get together it's a big party and we wouldn't trade it for the world!
Stephanie has been a photographer since 2010, and Christi since 2009, so we've been at this a while! We joined forces in 2022 to form SCP and we are so excited to serve couples together!
I am an eager photographer, happy wife to the Love of my life, and blessed mother to five precious kiddos! I have, for as long as I can remember, been crazy about photography. I’m passionate about making those memories beautiful and timeless.
My husband, Andrew, and I began our love story ten years ago. Being on the bride side of things increased all the more the excitement and love I have for weddings and the couples building their life together!!
We have four boys and one girl! We love going hiking together as a family and spending days at the lake. In 2020 we bought & renovated a house. We survived our own remodel, a pandemic, and a pregnancy all in one year! Most days, you'll find me homeschooling my kids in my yoga pants drinking coffee.
Equal parts southern hospitality & California openness, I love getting to know people honestly. I value real conversations & tough questions, even though I don't have all the answers. I believe we accomplish our true work when we embrace who we are and our unique talents.
I'm married to Matt, an insanely smart software engineer who can solve a Rubik's cube blindfolded. I have a master's degree in Piano Performance and love bringing people together through music. I'm a coffee lover and a swimming enthusiast, and I love to travel whenever I can. One of my favorite memories is an epic 25-state, 35-day road-trip I took with my friend Ashley in 2016!
Photography has been a part of my life since I was a teenager! I got my first camera in high school & have been loving capturing memories ever since!
"Christi was the first photographer we found when planning our wedding, and we couldn’t have made a better choice. She was kind, easy to work with, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. Stephanie was the second shooter for our big day and made sure there were no special moments missed. We could not have had a better experience with this duo and will cherish their work for many years to come." - Kyle & Kimberly
"Stephanie isn't just a photographer that shows up at your wedding and takes beautiful pictures, she is someone that is excited to be a part of your wedding journey from day one! The day of the wedding she was exactly what I needed: joyful, calm and structured. She photographed my day perfectly and I could not be more thrilled with the beautiful memories she captured." - Maggie G.
"We absolutely loved working with Christi! Not only is she a phenomenally talented photographer, but she was absolutely a delight to work with. She was so professional, patient and winsome with us throughout the whole process. She made us feel comfortable and encouraged us to be ourselves. We could not be happier with the final images! I would highly recommend Christi to anyone!!" - Logan & Emily
"Stephanie is a wonderful photographer and very easy to work with! When our wedding plans changed drastically due to the COVID crisis, she went above and beyond to work with us and ensure our special day was captured so we can always look back and remember our fairytale, mountaintop wedding. Thank you, Stephanie, for sharing your skill and passion with us!" - Mikaela & Jeremy
"Christi is the best. She makes you feel like you are her only client. She goes above & beyond for her brides & grooms. Without her, our wedding day wouldn't have flowed so smoothly. She is fun to work with and she is so talented!!! She was so patient with me and helped a ton in our planning process. Christi was 100% the best decision I made when wedding planning!" - Victoria W.
"As the day of my wedding approached, I knew I wanted to remember it for the rest of my life. Stephanie took care of everything for me. I couldn't have done it without her that day! She made the photos I had always dreamed of having on my wedding day a reality!" - Sarah J.
"Christi was the first vendor that we booked for our wedding because we knew that she was the best we would find in the area. Her positive attitude and quick work made it easy to organize big groups and made people feel comfortable and important. Christi worked incredibly fast! We were enjoying some of the pictures before the day even ended!!! I could not have been happier!" - Sam & Susie
