Washington Oaks Engagement Session

Kevin and Maureen showed up to their Washington Oaks engagement session in the perfect palette of pastels I have ever seen! We met on a rather humid and warm October morning, but Kevin and Maureen were such pros during their Washington Oaks engagement session! Despite the warmth, we moved so quickly through their session and […]

St. Augustine Engagement Session

Dalton and Veronica’s St. Augustine engagement session was so much fun! We spent the evening perusing America’s oldest fort, the Castillo de San Marcos, and explored the bay front all while battling hundreds of people who were in town to enjoy the popular Nights of Lights! Dalton and Veronica both attend Flagler College so it […]

Why Weekday Elopements Are Awesome

Weekends tend to be the natural choice for elopements and weddings, which makes complete sense. People are off of work and ready to have a good time. But that’s the main problem for couples who want to elope somewhere private.. everyone else is off and outside enjoying the views, too. So chances are, you and […]

Crooked Willow Farms Wedding | Larkspur, Colorado

I met Scott and Sydney last fall for the first time when we met up for their engagement session in Castlewood Canyon State Park. Meeting their sweet pup, Gracie Jo, […]

Bluemont Vineyard Virginia Wedding

Todd and Ashleigh’s wedding will forever be one of my favorite days EVER. Not just because it was an incredible Bluemont Vineyard Virginia wedding with gorgeous details-  but because of the incredible families that came together to celebrate that day.  Before their amazing Bluemont Vineyard Virginia wedding, I first met Todd and Ashleigh last summer […]

Rocky Mountain National Park Elopement

Brett and Lauren’s Rocky Mountain National Park elopement was a dream. Firstly, it was everything you’d want in a wedding day. The weather was classic Colorado weather: sunshine and a rain shower here and there. Secondly, the elk were roaming the fields, as you’ll always find them doing in Rocky Mountain National Park, and the […]

BEHIND THE LENS

ABOUT STACY

When my husband, Jeff, and I were planning our wedding, we hired a photographer whose work was beautiful. Fast forward a few months, she ghosted us. Took our money and vanished. Two months before our wedding, I'm panicking, trying to find another photographer who was available on our very popular date- 10/10/10, and whose work didn't completely suck. I was laughed at over the phone by one photographer, whose name I will withhold but will FOREVER remember. He obviously thought my desperation was amusing, but I couldn't see the humor through my enormous tears. 

After having already spent our entire photography budget, I was forced to hire the only person who was left available, and for fairly cheap. He definitely over-promised + under-delivered. It was a sad experience, one I never want you to have to go through, which is why I am so passionate about ensuring my couples have the MOST amazing wedding photography experience humanly possible, with me.

If you are looking for a photographer who values YOU and your entire wedding photography experience, I'm your girl.
I will be by your side, making sure you feel totally comfy + content while you're in front of my lens. I promise your wedding day photos will be timeless, beautiful, and everything you've dreamed of.

I honestly can't wait to meet you, so get in touch and let's do this! 

If you have found your way to me, it's probably because you've been searching for the right photographer, but none of the others have felt like 'the one'. I get it. I've been there, done that.
