Reviews from clients, frequently asked questions and an overview of my process

"Stacie made our elopement photography dreams materialize!"

She helped facilitate some structure to the day to ensure we got the shots we wanted, and she made us both feel so effortlessly comfortable in front of the camera, which is such a big deal. She was flexible, accommodating, and supportive of all of our antics!”

In all your Pinteresting and daydreaming, did you ever imagine you could have a West Coast wedding or elopement photography experience that’s just as free spirited and dynamic as the love you share? My thoughtful, collaborative approach to wedding photography is perfect for couples with personality and vision who want to tell their love story their way! Across seven years in the industry, I’ve found the perfect balance of detailed planning and easygoing spontaneity that gives you the space to play without sacrificing style. 

Whether you get your preferred adrenaline rush from rock climbing or the latest episode of your favorite true-crime podcast, you have a passion for adventure. So, it’s no surprise that you’re searching for a photography experience as dynamic as you are! And I’m here to deliver. Ready to dive in?


"Can I give ten stars?"

Stacie was incredible to work with. She made everyone feel so comfortable and was a genuine hype girl the whole day! She is such a joy to have around on your big day, and the photos are seriously incredible. She caught all the funny memories and even included my dog in the photos. I could go on and on, but I'll sum it up and say, Hire her!’”

"She went over and beyond our expectations"

Stacie was amazing! We had never had professional photos taken before but we gave her some ideas of what we were looking for and she went over and beyond our expectations! She was so helpful on our wedding day. She coached us on how to pose, where to look, gave us funny cues to help take away the anxiety and awkwardness that naturally occurs on a wedding day.


"If you're awkward in front of the camera and never know what to do with your hands, Stacie is your girl"

 If you're awkward in front of a camera and never know what to do with your hands, Stacie is your girl. If you want photos that look amazing but not overly posed, Stacie is your girl. If you want someone that goes the extra mile and bends her body in funny shapes to get "the perfect" shot, Stacie is your girl.

She has many talents but the greatest of them all is her ability to make you feel comfortable. I was really worried about posing prior to our shoot but she had easy commands that elicit genuine laughs and smiles. You'll never feel awkward and your photos will look incredible.

I hate making you wait to see your wedding day through my lens! So, just one week after your wedding day, I’ll send a sneak peek your way. And ten weeks after that, you’ll have the entire gallery to snuggle up and enjoy. Cheers to you, newlyweds!   



After months and months of planning, your wedding day will finally arrive! And because of our preparation, you’ll feel totally free to enjoy every moment while I capture it all from behind my camera. Not a detail or emotion will be missed! So, grab a signature cocktail and hit the dance floor on the best day of your life!



Three months before the “I do’s,” we’ll revisit those vendors to finalize your list. This way, I can reach out to anyone I need to touch base or collaborate with in our mission to give you the dream day you’re hoping for!



Coming up with the perfect wedding day photo timeline—especially because you’ve probably never done this before—isn’t something you should have to do alone! That’s why I partner with all of my couples or their planners if they have one, to build a timeline that ensures we get all the photos you want without losing light or pulling you away from the party for too long.

Map out your day


That’s right! I’ll even help you Tetris together your perfect vendor team! Based on your Couples Questionnaire, I’ll curate a recommended vendor list that suits your vision. It’s never been easier to burn through your wedding planning to-do list!

My Process

To get this party started, simply send an inquiry my way! Share a little about yourselves, the celebration you’re planning, and your wedding day vision. Then, I’ll be in touch in 24 hours or less to schedule your no-pressure consultation call.

Drop me a line



If I could pick a superpower, it would absolutely be to control the weather. Until that magically happens, I can only promise to come 110% prepared for absolutely anything! If you’ve booked an elopement or couple’s session, we can give a few backup plans a try. And if you’ve planned a full wedding day, we’ll capture breathtaking photos storm or shine! Ready to dance in the rain? I’m game if you are! 

What happens if it rains on our wedding, elopement, or session day?

Don’t worry! I’m ten steps ahead of you. I always have an associate photographer ready to go on a wedding day in case something should happen last minute. They can seamlessly slip into a celebration and deliver an experience for you that meets my high standards. And no matter what, I’ll always be the one editing your images.

What happens if an emergency keeps you from photographing our wedding?

Of course! It’s actually what I do best! Even the most self-proclaimed awkward couples leave my sessions amazed by how natural and fun the experience is. By leaning into your personality as a couple and giving you prompts that feel true to you, I’ll help you get over those camera jitters right away!

Honestly, we are pretty awkward in photos. Can you help us?


My calendar fills quickly, so shoot me an inquiry ASAP! We’ll then schedule a consultation call to talk specifics. And if you feel like we’re a perfect match, a signed contract and paid 25% retainer is all it takes to reserve your date. Then, the fun begins!

This all sounds amazing! How do we save our date?

I’m just as excited to deliver them as you are to see them! So, I’ll begin editing your images right away, which enables me to get you a sneak peek gallery in just seven days! Yep, share those puppies all over social media! And just ten weeks after that, your full gallery will be ready to go.

 When will we get to see our photos?

I jump at any chance to load up my car or hop on a plane! So, you better believe my camera, and I will go anywhere you take us! Just make sure to share your potential location in your inquiry form so that I can share a travel quote with you during our consultation call

Do you only offer West Coast wedding and elopement photography? Or will you travel?
