Sonoma and Napa Valley Photographer
My name is Magdalena (Maggie) Stefanek and I am a Sonoma and Napa Valley wedding photographer. I've been photographing weddings for over 10 years. I am available for weddings, elopements, engagements, portraits and events in Sonoma, Napa, Marin and San Francisco and I am starting to offer destination weddings including Europe. Wine country draws brides and grooms from all over the world making this area very desirable to host your wedding. I photograph in Sonoma, Napa, Kenwood, Geyserville, Healdsburg, Santa Rosa, St Helena, Calistoga, Windsor, Rohnert Park, Petaluma, Novato, Mill Valley, San Rafael, Cloverdale, Tahoe, San Francisco, Santa Cruz, and I am open to exploring new locations! From weddings, elpoements and bridal showers to family reunions and corporate events Wine Country is a perfect place for it all!
You might thing why hire a professional photographer? After many years as a pro photographer I have enough experience to capture fast unfolding moments that can be missed by an amateur. I know what to expect, where to be, what equipment to use at any given time to make sure the photos are the best. Without those skills that only an experienced photographer can guarantee an important moments that can't be recreated can be missed. Hiring a professional photographer is an investment.
My approach to a wedding day is to capture the day in a photo-journalistic way with plenty of candids to tell the story of your special day. I specialize in creative, timeless wedding photography. I put emphasis on communication and preparation prior to wedding day in order to avoid unwanted surprises and plan ahead. I like to keep it simple and want you to know what exactly is included in my photography services and if there is any additional fees you should be aware of. My goal is to create a relationship with my clients so they trust me, which allows me to take natural photos showing their real personalities and love between them. While I photograph I like to put my clients at ease and make sure they look natural and are enjoying being photographed. I appreciate all my newlyweds who took their time to write a review on WeddingWire of their experience of working with Magdalena Stefanek Photography so the grooms and brides-to-be could get an idea of what to expect!
Although weddings are my main focus, I also photograph portraits, corporate events, senior portraits, family portraits and maternity portraits. I also offer product and food photography.
