Wendy's beautiful photography captured our daughters' personalities perfectly! Our photo session was truly a special experience; full of smiles and laughter. Wendy was extremely professional, patient, energetic and her warm personality made her easy to work with. She was well-prepared and had great ideas, making our time with her fly by! Wendy was flexible and shot pictures of our family in multiple locations which provided us many pictures to choose from. We are already looking forward to our next photo session with Wendy!

Being a senior, I know how hard it is at times to find someone to take your senior pictures. You want someone to do a professional grade job, while not totally making you go broke. Wendy Stocker is that person. She has the ability to read each environment and light angle to truly take professional grade pictures. She is extremely kind and patient during the photographing process. She also makes taking pictures fun by giving out fun ideas for poses or positions. You can truly tell by the carefree atmosphere she gives out that it is personable. She cares about the individual's photos and makes sure she can provide the very best for her clients. I know that I would hire Wendy Stocker for much more than she asked for, that's just how great she is and how good the experience was. Wendy Stocker is a professional in her own right. If you are looking for someone to take great pictures please think of hiring Wendy Stocker first, she will not disappoint you!
Every aspect of our experience with Wendy Jo Stocker Photography was incredible! Our son felt so at ease with Wendy and we can see that in the wonderful prints we now have framed. Wendy's suggestions for locations personalized our son's senior portraits and captured great memories of his high school years. She added his dog to some of the photos which was a lot of fun and led to heartwarming results! The most difficult part of our job was to choose our favorites from the numerous photos taken! From scheduling the appointment, the quick turnaround in receiving the edited photos, the quality of work and Wendy's own very caring and passionate personality all made this experience so enjoyable. We will definitely continue to recommend Wendy Jo Stocker Photography to our family and friends. We too will be back, this time for family photos!

Wendy is in a word…..fabulous! She made our family photo shoot so much fun. Some of my favorite photos were candid shots she captured of my boys. I got my photos back super fast – and love them! Wendy has a passion for photography and it shows in every photo she takes. I will definitely be using Wendy in the future.

Wendy truly has a top-quality photographer’s instinct and gift for seeing artistic images through the lens of her camera, resulting in unique and beautiful pictures. Our family’s photo session was scheduled on a day that happened to be on an on-again/off-again drizzly day. Wendy was adventurously flexible when we decided together to not cancel the session, but to seize the moment and see what magic might occur in those conditions. Wendy’s easy-going style made the time we spent outside enjoyable and an opportunity to get some stunning outdoor shots that resulted in several treasured family photos.
Working with Wendy was fun and easy! She offered creative ideas, adorable props and positive energy during the entire photo-shoot! She made us feel so comfortable and was able to capture an authentic and fun side of our family. We love her vision for a natural photo style.; she captured the genuine connections and expressions that are true to our family. Not only is Wendy great to work with, but she produced STUNNING photos as well! Within just a few days she provided a CD with hundreds of beautifully edited images. We couldn’t be happier with the results of our first family photo-shoot! I highly recommend Wendy to anyone looking for a passionate and creative photographer who will bring out the best in you!

Love Our photo session with Wendy was an awesome. In November, we did an outside session with her to get some seasonal pictures of our 2 year old as well as some family photos done. Wendy talked to us and got to know Mason’s personality to allow for some candid shots. She had some really great ideas in mind for poses and backgrounds, which allowed us to have some fun with it! We loved that she scrubbed through the pictures and edited many of them – they all turned out awesome! She is very aware of the background, lighting, images and people in the photo. We will definitely be using Wendy’s photography for future sessions and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!

People have been asking me who took the wonderful pictures of Cameron. We were so happy to discover Wendy @ Wendy Jo Stocker Photography. Wendy was so kind and patient and she wouldn't settle until she got the picture right! Her prices are VERY FAIR and the amountof photos we got back was incredible! NO outlandish fees and prices for prints. JUST a very honest and straightforward fee. We have already scheduled our family pictures for August!
-Brandi Haines Shoyat
Wendy is awesome at what she does and I loved the finished product from all of our sessions. I’m blessed to have Wendy as a friend and my own personal photographer J. Anyone who uses Wendy will be pleased, because she is thoughtful, sweet, very good at the placement of your subjects and very patient. She has a wonderful eye and knows instinctively what will work and won’t.
I just wanted to write a huge thank you to Wendy for taking some amazing pictures for us. My family has had professional photographs taken several times and I have never been more pleased with the whole experience as I was with Wendy. From the start she was so knowledgeable and helpful with ideas about clothing, props, shooting locations, and poses. During our photo session Wendy had many unique and creative thoughts on how to capture spectacular images with a wide range of meaning behind them. We had so much FUN while taking our pictures! We are thrilled about the quality of photographs to remember this period of time in our life by. I have had several people inquire where I got these fantastic pictures taken from and I don’t hesitate a second to highl suggest they check out Wendy for their photography needs.
Wendy did our engagement session, she was absolutely amazing! Such a great experience, a great photographer and a great individual. We loved every single picture she took! She had amazing ideas for backgrounds, scenery, props and poses which was super helpful! We have gotten so many great compliments on our photos from everyone that has seen them. We highly recommend Wendy for your photo session!

Doing a senior picture shoot with Wendy was outstanding! From the planning to the finished product, Wendy's professionalism was evident as was her enthusiasm for her work as a photographer. My daughter Marissa was put at ease right away with Wendy's warm and genuine personality. Before the shoot, Wendy was in contact with Marissa and asked her to send Wendy her own ideas for poses and what Marissa's opinion was about each location. We were impressed with Wendy's suggestions for the locations and variety of poses. Wendy was so complimentary throughout the process and Marissa commented to me more than once how much she liked Wendy and how much fun she had on the shoot. The pictures turned out fantastic and we received so many compliments from our family and friends. I would highly recommend Wendy as your photographer for any occasion! In fact, my extended family is planning a photo session this summer for a big family portrait as well as individual family pictures.
Thank you Wendy,
Wow...Amazing, Awesome, FUN is all we can say about our experience with Wendy Jo Stocker Photography. Wendy and Jenny Loew were the photographers for our wedding day. Not only did they get all of the “must have” shots of the day, but they went above and beyond to capture every special moment of our wedding day. They came prepared with fun poses for the wedding party and family shots. We could not have asked for a better team to be a part of our day. The photos from the day were edited and provided three weeks after the event. We appreciate everything they did, but we also can't tell you how many of our wedding guests came up to us after the event to say that these ladies were just so great, so nice and very hard working. So thank you, thank you, thank you! We highly recommend Wendy Jo Stocker Photography for any professional photograph needs. Thank you for capturing so many great moments and being a part of our special day.

Wendy photographed our wedding in May. When we started the wedding planning process, one of our biggest stressors was worrying about a photographer. Pictures last forever, and you want to find someone that captures your day perfectly. Wendy did just that and more! Working with her was a breeze. She always made sure to check in with us throughout the planning and make sure things were going smoothly and double check details. We loved how she brought along a second photographer, so not a moment was missed! On the day of, she arrived early to look over the venue and photograph the set up. She was there the second I got out of my vehicle and didn't miss a single moment! She had tons of pose ideas, but what we loved most were all of the candid shots she got. She captured so many special memories and emotions, we can't thank her enough! We love that we can look back at our wedding album and it's like we're reliving the day because every moment was captured so beautifully in each and every photograph.
-Abbey & George Post
Wendy so much fun to work with. Her ability to make it not feel like a photo shoot was remarkable.
Taking pictures with my two little boys (at 2 and 3 years old) can be a struggle but Wendy was so fluid and didn't skip a beat at our shoot. She managed to get these two little guys out of their shell and capture the amazing moments we see with them every single day. Although my husband and I are slightly camera shy, she made us incredibly comfortable and gave us tons of ideas for poses and options for the whole family. I especially appreciated the printing resources she provided with our images, along with a speedy turn around time to get our pictures back! Awesome work Wendy Stocker, we appreciate you and will need you again in the future for sure.
Wendy Jo Stocker Photography did an amazing job capturing all the special moments at our daughter and son-in-law’s wedding! They were great to work with and took thousands of photos at multiple locations! An exceptional value that will bring back great memories for many years to come!
As a DJ it is always a dream working with knowledgeable and professional photographers at weddings. Wendy and her team were very kind. It was an honor to work with you!

We had our sons 6 month/family pictures taken by Wendy. The weather conditions as well as our 6 month old not being generous with the smiles was less than ideal. Wendy made the most of it and put forth every effort to make sure we were able to get some nice pictures!! She went above and beyond and we are grateful! We love our pictures. ❤️ Thank you Wendy
We are thrilled with our experience with Wendy Jo Stocker Photography! Wendy took pictures for our wedding in July (2018) and she was great to work with! She met with us beforehand to work through the details, was incredibly responsive, made our wedding day fun and low-stress, and got our pictures back to us within a week! Not to mention, she was incredibly affordable compared to other wedding photographers and our pictures are beautiful. We are so happy we chose Wendy as our wedding photographer! Highly recommend!
She did a wonderful job, and we loved that her wedding package includes two photographers- it made everything go so quick and we got a wider variety of angles in our shots! Wendy was also just so fun to work with, and she made us all feel very comfortable right away. We got very lucky finding her to do our wedding
-Kylie Moua Nelson
Wendy is amazing and her 2nd photographer Sue did a wonderful job at our wedding. We just got married 3 days ago so I was going to wait to post a review until we got our photos. However, because Wendy is a great person to work with and has a passion for photography, she has already been sending me some shots and she edits and looks through them! I am already in love with our pictures and she's just getting started. She is a spectacular photographer to work with for your wedding. She makes sure your pictures are just as you want them. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer for our special day!
Wendy did a FANTASTIC JOB at our wedding!!!! She gave me all the information I needed up front. I sent her ideas of what I wanted for pictures and she made sure they happened. She also had great picture ideas the day of our wedding! She was and continues to be very prompt in communicating with me. And last but certainly not least the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous!!! She is amazingly easy to work with and I will definitely be using her in the future!!!!!
Wendy did an outstanding job. She captured the beauty of our day in so many ways. She is friendly, knowledgeable and skilled. Her services are very reasonably priced. She got all our photos to us within 10 days from the wedding. I'm a teacher in RF and I give Wendy an A+.
Wendy photographed our outdoor wedding. She. Is. Fantastic. So professional and easy to work with. She really made our day extra special! Our pictures are amazing! I would recommend her to anyone.
We received our son's fantastic Senior Pictures promptly today and I don't know how we are going to choose even just a few! They are all so good! We had so much fun walking around our hometown on our own personal photo shoot. Wendy knew so many amazing backdrops for the photos; I'll never walk around downtown again without thinking of our fun experience and our great, new photos.
Looking forward to working on our graduation invites with Wendy next. I'm sure to receive Wendy's prompt and professional service.
Wendy took my 3 kids senior pics...and we have been VERY pleased with all. The amount of work she puts into editing the photos is amazing. Thanks Wendy!
Wendy is a phenomenally talented photographer! She knows just how to capture the personalities of our children and the personal style of our family. She is always open to suggestions and new ideas, which I love! You find an idea that you love, show it to her and she does a great job of replicating it impromptu. She is always timely in getting edited photos back to us along with the originals. She has been our photographer for the last 3 years and we wouldn't think about having anyone else capture the love we share in our family. Looking forward to more years of great family photos as our children grow older. We would highly recommend her! We love her work!
