Stephanie is a Force of Nature!
— Joyce Tenneson, Renowned Fine Art Photographer

“Stephanie, I cannot thank you enough for your help and guidance on my journey into the industry. You were incredible to work with and I have such an appreciation for your process. Shooting with you has given me so much to consider as I move forward. The things we discussed really resonated with me and those things alone have not only changed how I plan to move forward as a model but also allowed for some personal reflection. Our time together was filled with valuable moments I will carry with me as long as I go. I feel so blessed to have gotten to work with you. Thank you.”

- Ocean Wells, Model

Stephanie Matthews is a great friend and business associate that I’ve had the pleasure of knowing for several years. Being in the fashion & modeling business you get to be very selective as to the photographers and their creative team you want to work with. Stephanie has demonstrated such grace and a high standard of professionalism in all she does, which is reflected in her work.

Our models have had the unique priviledge of gaining so much more than just a photo shoot when working with her, but more an experience filled with guidance, constructive critique and encouragement that comes straight from the heart. Her expertise in this industry is well recognized through her exceptional magazine and photo publications worldwide.

I’m honored to be able to work with Stephanie and look forward to many more collaborations in the near future.

I’ve had the privilege of knowing and working with Stephanie for almost 10 years. As a professional model, I experienced her ability to make you feel comfortable in front of her lens. There’s something she does when she’s directing and coaching you, that brings the best out of your modeling. I felt like I could become any character and really be in the moment with her. Her work is bright and bold! The subjects she photographs literally jump right out of the image with color and movement! As a fashion stylist, I can see that Stephanie motivates me in the same way she did when I was a model. It’s just simply who she is. Stephanie is a strong creative director that can make anything happen. If there is a tight deadline, missing sunlight, or some other natural issue that happens in this industry, she rises to the challenge and she takes you with her. When I think about influential creatives that are always evolving and putting out great work...I think of her.

The movement, skill and precision of a Stephanie Matthews shot reminds me of an African drummer. Methodical, synchronized and full of motion...all the things that I represent as a designer. Our gloves fit and I always look forward to our photo adventures...

I work closely with Stephanie on the Columbus Book Project, a coffee-table book she’s helped bring to fruition. Her artistry and professionalism inspires me and everyone who interacts with her.

Working with Stephanie is an absolute pleasure. She has an amazing eye for fashion and getting the most beautiful image from a model. She is a true collaborator and understands the vision behind what needs to be produced, setting any ego aside. Two years standing her beautiful work has allowed me to be nominated for Behind The Chair Big Shot editorial shots, winning the very first one. None of that could have been achieved without her incredible talent behind the lens.

When I first connected with Stephanie to this day she has been the same phenomenal person. Not only is she a SUPERB photographer she’s also a great mentor. She’s extremely professional but her passion is what makes you so drawn to her. Since last year i’ve been published five times including my first cover publishing ever. She’s the very BEST in the business not just for her talents but for her wisdom, passion and expertise in this industry. She will always be a dear friend and I will always refer her to anyone who’s looking for quality.

Stephanie is a visionary. She’s great for walking into a space and seeing the final product before most of us can even decide where to begin! Every single time, I’ve just been thrilled with her final images; without fail.
— Emily Smith, Fashion Stylist
Abbie is new to the modeling industry and Stephanie embraced that. Stephanie is an amazing photographer and produced gorgeous shots for Abbie’s portfolio, but, the best part was that she took the time to teach and coach Abbie on how to move and get those shots that the industry really wants. What a confidence builder! That was priceless.
— Brenda Hunter, (mother) of Abbie Hunter, Sigal Models
It was a great pleasure to work with Stephanie. She was very invested in creating an individualized plan for our shoot together and worked to teach me a lot about modeling. The photographs turned fantastic and helped my modeling career grow drastically. I am very appreciative to have met and worked with her.
— Madi Ellerbrock, Sigal Models
Stephanie and I have worked together on a number of jobs and each time we have worked together she amazed me by her skill set and professionalism! Her lighting techniques are great and her ability to “get the shot” is amazing! She is truly one of the best and her energy on set is wonderful! She’s excellent at what she does and I look forward to working with her again!
— Torrence Forde, Freelance Makeup Artist | Licensed Esthetician | Beauty Editor & Contributor
Of all the photographers I have worked with, Stephanie was the one that “got it”. She picked up on my styling aesthetic with ease. She is able to collaborate creatively, lead a team, and build on a vision like no other. On set, she is quick and I mean QUICK, shooting more than 10 looks, full editorial spreads, in less than two hours. Not only is she quick, she knows how to get “the shot”. She uses unique lighting techniques that can capture amazing images in complicated settings like a white dress on a white background. Most importantly, she is a pleasure to work with and professional at every level. She has served as a mentor, a close friend and I would highly recommend her to anyone in our industry.
— Justine Aliotta, Fashion Stylist, 5F at Bergdorf Goodman

Stephanie, Stephanie…what is there left to say that hasn’t been said again and again. Stephanie is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G and a superiorly gifted individual. I can only hope, one day, we’ll do something again that is fashion-based because, let’s face it, her fashion work is simply stunning.

I hired Stephanie to shoot photography for a website. On time, had awesome assistants, equipment I dream about in my sleep…everything. The shoot, for all we had to accomplish, went very quick! As another creative, working with Stephanie is fantastic. Convey your idea as the Creative Director to her and she is off running, locked and loaded with great visual direction.

I would hire her again at a moments notice–no hesitation. She is a profoundly gifted individual and your life will be that much more enhanced by working with Stephanie. She has my utmost highest praise and recommendation
