The Wedding Experience

 

 

Welcome to my Wedding page!!!  Yes it is true, I photograph a lot of different genres: weddings, families, newborns, seniors, and babies too!  BUT my favorite thing about my job is meeting fabulous new couples and capturing the most important, happiest day of their lives!!!  I have the best job!  

Hiring a professional photographer for your wedding and engagement pictures is a big decision!  I believe that you are not just hiring someone for a few pictures but rather you are hiring someone that will be a big part of your special day.  We start your experience getting to know each other with your complimentary engagement session.  This is a fun time and so many different things we can do!  Where should we go?!?!  Often times guys come into this not very excited about it BUT we have a great time where the couple gets to canoodle and kiss and every once in a while smile for the camera.  I also use this time to teach you some basic "poses" that will help make your wedding day go so much more smoothly!  

After the engagement photos are done, there is usually a pretty good gap of time before the wedding.  During this time, we will be in contact with questionnaires and e-mails that will really help me know EXACTLY what you are wanting to capture and what you imagine your day to be like.  As the wedding photographer, it is my job to help you create a wedding timeline that will allow for everything that you would like to capture on your wedding day.  But I am very realistic with you and make sure you know what things could come up and always have backup plans!!!  

By the time that the wedding day arrives, I am always so excited because I get to watch my new friends get married and help make my clients dreams come true!  I will capture you looking your best with the best lighting and poses to flatter you!  We will have a fun time capturing the wedding party and letting you enjoy time together.  It is my job to help make your wedding day run smoothly, keep everyone on track, and make the most out of every situation.  My wedding photography style is all about having fun and helping to create a stress-free, happy environment. You may find me climbing a tree or laying on the ground to get the perfect shot. I work hard to not miss any important moments and capture them from a unique perspective. I get all the photographs that you want while capturing candid moments throughout the day.

 

 

"I can't say enough about the high quality work that Stacy does! She did our engagement photos on a (very) cold day and she was so wonderful to work with! She made a snowy winter day into a fun, memorable photo session! She also did our wedding photos and was AMAZING! She had so many ideas, kept everyone on schedule, and made the wedding photos so much fun. The photos turned out so much beyond our expectations. Every single photo turned out incredible! I would highly recommend Stacy for any and all of your photo needs!"
