I signed with Steph for our NYE wedding in 2018 after a great exploratory chat. It was important to us to surround ourselves with people who were full of positive energy and fun to be around on our wedding day. After a pretty extensive search, Steph was the only photographer who checked the boxes of professional, adaptable style, and super warm and natural personality. She teaches at OCAD and it really shows since her work is super polished and has an artistic style to it.
When it became clear that we wouldn’t be able to go ahead with the wedding due to covid-19, Steph immediately offered us a full refund. I’ve heard horror stories about other photographers who wouldn’t even entertain the conversation of a refund so I was extremely surprised and impressed when she didn’t hesitate to refund us after empathizing with our situation. She’s such a pro and is usually booked out over a year in advance so it really broke our hearts to have to give up our date we locked in almost 2 years prior.
A lot of why I picked her is because of the good vibes I got from her in our initial meeting and through this whole ordeal she’s been so wonderful acting as part photographer, part therapist. Steph even offered us a complementary shoot AFTER we cancelled, just as a gift for all the stress we’d have been under. We used this to do our bridal portraits and, of course, it was an amazing experience. She was so good with making the shots look super romantic and elegant and helped us negotiate with the photo studio for some extra time for free. I haven’t seen the final result but based on the previews I know it’s going to look like something out of a magazine.
When this is all over, we’ll definitely be planning our wedding around steph’s schedule because we wouldn’t want anyone else with us on such a big day. She operates her business with integrity at a time when a lot of vendors are showing their true colours.

Better than I could ever imagine
Working with Steph and her team was an absolute dream! From the first time I met her, I knew Steph would be a great fit for us. She’s honest and tells it as it is, and I really appreciated that approach. She provided a lot of helpful feedback and guidance when I was developing the timeline for our wedding day, and I knew that I could trust her advice because she genuinely wanted the best for us.
Our guests ranged from ages 2 to 91, and she had an excellent approach to working with all of them. She’s friendly yet firm, and was able to direct our guests into perfect poses and efficiently capture multiple beautiful photos in a short time frame.
Steph and her team are extremely talented and committed to getting the best photos. They will do whatever it takes to get the perfect perspective, from standing on furniture to crouching in bushes. They also spent the day lugging around a suitcase full of anything they may need, which was very handy when one of my bridesmaids ripped her dress and Steph pulled out a sewing kit. They really went above and beyond to make sure we ended up with incredible photos, and we’ve received so many compliments.
Even though I’m still amazed by how beautiful our photos are, what really sets Steph apart from others is her personality. There are lots of photographers around who can take really nice photos, but Steph put significant effort into getting to know us so we felt very comfortable and completely trusted her and her team. To me, that was the most important quality for such an emotional and stressful day. You will not regret choosing Pink Pineapple for your wedding photos!Sent on 21/10/2019

Best decision choosing Stephanie as our wedding photographer
Stephanie and her team are beyond incredible to work with. She is so sweet and she has an amazing eye for things. Very talented at what she does. I get very nervous to have photographs taken as I have difficulty knowing how to pose but Stephanie gave the perfect amount of guidance and my engagement photos turned out amazing. So happy I chose her to be my wedding photographer!Sent on 23/08/2018

Attentive and fun!
Let me just start by saying that I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience with Pink Pineapple. Stephanie was honestly such a professional, kind, and fun woman to work with (from start to finish). What my partner and I appreciated most was her attentiveness and desire to get to know us as a couple in order to help us choose the perfect location for our engagement shoot that truly reflected us. My partner and I quickly felt comfortable in front of the camera, and shared a lot of genuine laughs during the process with Stephanie. The end result was more than either of us could ever have imagined. Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, for our beautiful engagement photos! We will cherish them forever.Sent on 22/08/2018

Words cannot describe how happy I am with Pink Pineapple Photography! We had our engagement shoot with them and was so happy we are booking our wedding photography as well. Stephanie is so amazing and makes you feel so comfortable getting your photos taken. I was a little nervous since I am not super comfortable getting my photos taken in the first place. She also took the time to give us some tips on what photographs well and how to pose. Everything was thought of from straightening my engagement ring to shinning the champagne glasses prior to shooting.Sent on 23/08/2018
Due to weather we had to reschedule but Stephanie was so easy going and flexible. She is extremely responsive to text, phone calls and emails. We also got our private gallery of all of our images so quickly.
We cannot wait to have her shoot our wedding!
Thank you Pink Pineapple Photography!

My fiance and I just had an engagement shoot with Stephanie and left feeling very happy! We actually won our session from the wedding show we attended back in January so we were skeptical and worried there would be a catch. Absolutely not! Stephanie not only found the most gorgeous cherry blossom location for us with ZERO tourists, she made us feel at ease that day. Both my fiance and I hate taking pictures but she captured so many beautiful moments. Thank you so much for the outstanding pictures and only making us wait a day and a half to see them all!! It is evident that you really are doing what you were made to do! Thank you x1000000 for the captured memories we will now have forever!!Sent on 22/08/2018

Scheduling and Planning (5/5)
My first time in contact with Stephanie was in January to plan and schedule our engagement shoot in April. She made the process very easy and was always very positive in our e-mail exchanges. Quite alot of work goes into scheduling and planning a shoot. We decided to do the shoot during the third week of April due to weather and then firmed up the exact date, time, and location closer to March. She was always very responsive to our e-mails and always responded within a few hours, if not, less. In choosing the location, she gave us 13 really good suggestions and we picked our preference from that list. We decided to do the shoot at Scarborough Bluffs during sunset.
Photo Shoot Experience (4.5/5)
The photo shoot itself was quite an adventure. I haven't experienced that many photo shoots before but was surprised by the quality of equipment that Stephanie had brought with her for our 1.5 hour shoot. She had a travel suitcase with all kinds of lenses and you could tell that she really valued and cherished them. Since it was raining for the past two days it was still a little muddy on our way to the sandy shores. She is one strong women! We shot at five different locations, two along the sand, one in the straw/marsh, and two on the grass/rocks. She made us feel very comfortable very quickly and asked us to tell each other secrets and twirl/dance etc which brought out some ease in us in the shoot. She is the type of person who will do whatever it takes to get that perfect shot, even if it meant the risk of her falling into the puddle of water behind her (which almost happened!). I was lucky enough to remember to bring two pairs of shoes, one pair were flats and the other were heels and my fiance was luckily wearing his casual shoes and not his fancy leather ones otherwise he would have not enjoyed walking in the mud. I'm not sure if this is something that everyone would be aware of but would suggest others bring an extra pair of causal shoes as well for the shoots, just in case.
Quality of Photos (5.5/5)
Stephanie uploaded and edited our photos is record lightning time. We shot on Thursday and got all the photos on Saturday evening! All the photos were under well lit dreamy lighting and showcased lots of different varieties in frames (landscape, portrait) as well as sizes (from far all the way to upclose). We liked the variety we got to pick from and she always included multiple shots of the same frame in case we wanted to pick ones with different facial expressions (candid versus posey type photos). I was a fan of the more candid photos and she really helped us capture our tender laughter and moments that we cherished with each other as a couple.

A True Gem
My fiancé and I won an engagement shoot with Stephanie from a bridal show, and I am SO happy we did! Stephanie is personable and bubbly. She made us feel super comfortable and we enjoyed every minute of our shoot (even my fiancé, who can't stand having his picture taken). She has an excellent eye for lighting and framing, and great tips on what poses look best. The pictures are absolutely beautiful and ones I will cherish forever. She is extremely responsive and we got our photos back within 3 days. I can't say enough good things about Pink Pineapple Photography, you will not regret booking her!Sent on 22/08/2018
