I'm Staci!


I'm a hopeless romantic, love story collector, unapologetic Bachelor fan and being a professional third wheel is my jam! I am married to the kindest and craziest man with whom I made a home out of a kitty and a Tinder love story. I believe that we were truly created for one another and I will continue to love him in every life we live. I read once that there is a parasite that cats carry that makes you more attracted to their smell so Im pretty sure I have that because nuzzling into warm kitty fur is my favourite thing in the whole world. Besides maybe a great chai tea latte.

 I am drawn to the laid back; barefoot brides with windblown hair, backyard receptions, handwritten vows and throw your head back laughs. I will start every session with a laugh and some slow jams. And most importantly I will let you know that this day isn't about me. You don't need to look at my camera or have to know what to do with your hands. I just want to capture those quiet moments, the hands in hair cant look away from you moments. I want to frolic in fields and stand atop of mountains. Run into the lake, roll in the grass and chase the sunlight as we chat for hours. I want to leave every session and every wedding with new best friends because I genuinely care about you and your story. Because of that, I promise I will do it justice. Sound good? Let's tell your intimate, wild, romantic adventure!
