wedding + portrait photographer
Over ten years ago when I began my journey into wedding and portrait photography, there were not many resources available for learning. At sixteen, I learned the art of shooting film, processing in the darkroom, and art composition. However, business basics in photography, posing, workflow, editing? All that was foreign to me. I learned most of what I know through self-teaching, trial and error, interning, and from an amazing photographer and person, the talented Melissa Jill. I am forever in-debted to her and her open attitude towards helping me grow as a business-woman. After knowing photographers like her, I knew that one day, I also wanted to give back to new photographers that were just like myself years ago. Struggling to survive, and just wanted to live my dream. I love teaching from the bottom of my heart – I am authentic and I’ll tell it like it is, you will not leave without a long list of to-do’s … but I promise you, the investment of learning, of investing in yourself will give back to your business ten-fold.

“I have been so fortunate for Stacey’s expertise over the course of my business the last four years. She is always an open book and I am forever grateful for that. In the very beginning of my business she really helped me dive into my camera and learn manual, after my one on one session with her of practicing there was no turning back…it forever changed the look of my images. Since then she has been my go to gal during any pumps I have had along the way. She has always talked things through with me to better my skill and talent. Anywhere from camera technicalities to using editing software and the overall ins and outs of owning a business. A personal mentor overpowers google any day. It can all be overwhelming at times and Stacey has been that encouraging grounded person for me to continue to learn and grow, because helping and teaching is what she loves to do! You won’t be disappointed in advancing your photography business with a great mentor but as an added bonus you would meet an amazingly kind person to cheer you on!” // Tracy Jean PhotographyTracy Jean, Tracy Jean Photography
