I am German-born, Rhode Island and New York-based photographer and and I love to tell stories with my photographs.

I founded Stefy Hilmer Photography in 1998 in German and it has taking me to a lot of different places in the past 21 years and allowed me to take a glimpse of different sections of photography. From portraits and commercial to newspaper and now weddings. I have to say, I do love weddings by far the most. Why? Because I can tell a story. Your story.

I am committed to capturing intimate moments by observing the scenery and finding ways to creatively express your story and create timeless photographs for generations to come. 

Professionally trained in Europe, I traveled the world as a photojournalistic photographer capturing life's most beautiful moments for various publications and clients. My work is published in Germany, Switzerland, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Spain, France, and the U.S. 

My team is professionally trained and we are happy to assist you with any questions you might have before your big day and the day of. Your comfort is most important to all of us.

From the elegant to the rustic to the extravagant, I like to capture the authentic. With a contemporary style, my photographs combine documenting the feelings and emotions of your journey including your engagement, preparation leading to the ceremony and celebration itself, where I will create a timeless piece of art to hang in your home. Everyone has a story. I would love to tell yours.

 Please feel free to call or email me at any time. I look forward to meeting you and hearing about your vision for the wedding day and listen to your story and how you met and how it all started. I believe chemistry is important. Not just between you two but also between us. I would love to get to know you and meet you over coffee or a glass of wine. See you soon.
