Don’t take our word for our awesome services, here are some nice things our clients have said:

“Having Seattle Flashing Lights come in for my wedding was the first decision I made during my wedding planning. I didn’t even know when the wedding was going to be, but I knew I needed them to cover it. Having known Stephanie since I was 12-years-old, I’ve seen the hard work and dedication she puts into everything that she does. Everything she touches seems to turn into pure gold, and that’s what I wanted for my wedding day! Both my Husband and I were coming straight off of deployments just days before the wedding, so we had to plan everything from a distance. But Stephanie made it so easy to work out all of the logistics and details, and couldn’t have been more courteous and professional the entire time.
When the big day came, I was beyond impressed with the team work between Doug and Stephanie. They of course did every traditional photo for a wedding ceremony and reception, but they captured each one in an amazingly unique and artistic way. And taking such a typical event like a wedding and capturing it like that really speaks volume about how incredibly talented they are! And throughout the entire ceremony and reception, whenever something happen… they were there! All of those little funny moments that help make your wedding day fun and even more memorable were perfectly captured. Friend who had too much wine and spilled everywhere; they were there. Friend somehow getting stuck in a heat vent; they were there. Grandma dancing inappropriately and you are wishing it would end; they were there. But besides being skilled behind the camera, I think what really makes great photographers for events like this are their people skills. Both Stephanie and Doug are both so naturally charismatic that you and your guests can’t help but be completely comfortable in front of the camera. Most of the time, you don’t even realize they’re photographing you. And one thing they did that I didn’t expect them to was really take charge during those group shots. They were incredibly respectful but assertive while we were pulling people in and out for different groups, which made it a lot easier on us.
Five stars really don’t reflect high enough for how awesome Seattle Flashing Lights is! They make me want to get married all over again just so that I can hire them again!” – Sean (2014)

“Stephanie was absolutely amazing I found her from a Google search. I live in Texas but wanted to have someone photo my engagement. Stephanie was very quick to respond and was awesome throughout the entire thing offering help in any way possible. She even recommended several restaurants which we tried and we’re awesome. The quality of the pictures were unbelievable and she is an extremely great person to work with. If you have the chance book her for sure!” – Eric (2016)

“Stephanie with Seattle Flashing Lights Photography is by far the best photographer I have ever worked with. EVER! If it was up to me, I’d fly Stephanie out to shoot every single event.” –Monique, TheCHIVE.com (2013)

“Best Photographer, hands down ever! And the photos, ohmygosh our photos are absolutely lovely!! As I was going through them I told my fiancé that they are so “us”; Stephanie did a fantastic job really capturing who we are!” – Lindsay (2013-2015)

“Stephanie was up and down rocks and bridges and hills, making sure we had the greatest photos. She found the greatest spots for beautiful photos. In downtown, she took innovative shots. She is truly an artist. Top notch experience! I’m so blessed to have found Flashing Lights Seattle for our wedding! I 100% recommend.” – Andrea (2015)

“She is so friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I had a really fun time during the session. She also got my proofs back very fast (9 days). Without hesitation I would recommend Stephanie and Seattle Flashing Lights.” Inger (2016)

“Stephanie did an AMAZING job with our maternity/engagement photo shoot. I was pretty nervous about having a formal photo session but she made me feel so comfortable! My fiancé and I loved how the process was so organic and natural. We just walked around and she’d just feel inspired by the city around us. All the photos reflected who we were as people and as a couple. It was an amazing day! Thanks Steph! :)”- Jakica (2015)

“Posing for photos is not something I usually enjoy doing, but the personability and skill of Stephanie and Doug of Seattle Flashing Lights makes an afternoon photo-session seem like a day at the park hanging out with close friends. Not only do they somehow seem to work magic by capturing every moment in wonderful lighting, but they also have great eyes for unique photos. My fiancé and I used their services for our engagement shoot and could not have been happier. They problem-solved in the moment to find alternative locations when bad weather and restricted roads arose, as well as dealt with the finicky nature of our dog to capture multiple amazing shots despite his bad attitude. I would highly recommend Seattle Flashing Lights to anyone with an interest in an artistic eye, skilled photography, easy to deal with people, and a good deal (especially for the quality and quantity of photos they provide).” – Nicole (2014)

“Truth be told, given their phenomenal rates we had mediocre expectations for them. We decided to do an engagement shoot to check them out first – the pictures turned out AMAZING! And we are not the kind of couple that enjoys the PDA that accompanies the engagement/wedding shoot…they really catered to us, our dogs, our families… There were no hassles with regard to how to use the (700+!!)photos, additional edits, etc. Super accommodating, very professional and highly recommended! I CANNOT wait to have another excuse to book them :)” –Maite (2011)

“Best Photographer Ever! For Christmas this year my 3 siblings and I wanted to surprise our parents by getting professional photos done. With no clue on who or where to go I google searched “Seattle best photographers” and the first listing was Seattle Flashing Lights. I called, Stephanie answered and helped me with all of my questions. Stephanie was completely understanding of my situation when I told her I was trying to plan this while one of my sibling was in town for the holidays. We only had a small window to plan this and even though Stephanie was out of the country for awhile she always responding to my emails and helped me get everything together. Stephanie is an absolutely wonderful photographer, My family loved her and was so impressed with her work! She even took the time to remember all of our names and even wanted to know more about us as a family. We just took the photos Jan 2nd, my family and I are already planning to schedule Stephanie to take our photos again in the summer! If you want beautiful photos and a lovely experience please give Seattle Flashing Lights a call!” – Rebecca (2016)

“My wife and I had such a GREAT experience with Stephanie! We had our anniversary pictures and I had some awesome professional head shots taken. I must say, we couldn’t be happier with the results! Stephanie is truly one of the best in the business and she really goes the extra mile to get high quality and unique shots. She provided us with our excellent pictures sooner than expected and we’re simply customers for life. Thanks again Stephanie!” – Gil (2015)

“5 stars isn’t nearly enough to rate Stephanie Skeffington and Seattle Flashing Lights! From the first moment, I knew I was making the right choice. Stephanie offered us an amazing price for engagement photos, a destination wedding in Maui, AND a Seattle reception. She is so amazing, friendly, fun, and professional, you just can’t help but like her immediately! My husband does not like taking photos, and yet Stephanie was able to make him comfortable and has been able to take the best photos of him I have ever seen. Our engagement photos were beautiful! Then came time for the Maui wedding. Stephanie’s communication surpasses anything you could hope for. She is quick and responsive, by phone or by email. She really helped me think about what I wanted for the wedding. Having her with us in Maui was like having another one of our friends at the wedding. And oh my god the photos! I have to echo what Kayan H. said in her review – I cannot stop looking at them either, and we’ve never looked so good. She really captured what was the most beautiful and amazing day of my life, and the fact that the pictures reflect that so perfectly is priceless. I love that they aren’t super posey, just natural and beautiful. The other great thing is that Stephanie puts teasers on facebook nearly right away, which is awesome when you’re an impatient girl like me! I had so many comments on how amazing the photos are, and being that we had such a small group with us in Maui, it was wonderful to be able to share some photos before we even returned to the mainland. She was very fast with the rest of the photos and getting us our log in for her website so we could look at the proofs, request edits, and offer friends and family the chance to make purchases. Once I approved them, she sent us the pictures on a jump drive, ours to do whatever we want with them. I have been so, so happy with Stephanie as our photographer. And we still have our Seattle reception to look forward to! I really can’t recommend Seattle Flashing Lights enough. You’re crazy if you choose anyone else.” – Mikael (2013)
