Let's get into it.

My approach

exclusive // intentional // Personal

My approach to photography is to first get to know you. I believe the best art is created with depth, so I want to know all about your story, your vision, and your goals. I'm intentional about the work I do and the way I do it—with me you are never just another photography client, and I care deeply that you feel comfortable with me and trust me to tell your story in a beautiful way. I hope that by the end of our time working together we will feel like old friends!

Each experience includes:

Pre-shoot consultation + planning

personalized photography experience

professionally edited online gallery

full image ownership + printing rights

meet

Let's get acquainted! We'll start with a friendly chat, either in person or virtually. This is where we'll discuss your vision, preferences, and any questions you may have, to make sure that working together is a perfect fit!

Once you're all in, I'll send you over a contract and a retainer invoice to hold your date on my calendar, and we'll start planning timelines and logistics!

Need something a little different?

I'm down for almost any kind of photo related adventure. Brand photos? Maternity shoot? Pet portraits? Let's gooooo. Drop me a line and we'll chat about how to craft your perfect photo session.

You're adventurous and you love to travel the world.
You love the look of 35mm film & the nostalgic feeling it captures.
You've seen other kinds of photography and it just doesn't feel like you.
You want something extraordinary, something creative, something that stands out from the crowd.
You're not after something boring and simple, you want something that captures attention and inspires emotion.
You love both candid moments and cinematic scenes.
You want images that evoke everything you were feeling in that moment.
You don't want pictures that sit on a hard drive somewhere and are never looked at again.
You want beautiful pictures, but you also want to have some fun, too!

If any of that resonates with you, I got you! I'm the same way, and my photography style reflects that. I aim to capture all the slice-of-life moments as well as the true emotions, so that years later, when you're looking back at the pages of your well-worn photo album, your cheeks hurt from smiling and your heart feels all the feelings as if it were yesterday.

It's the honor of my life to get to photograph your unique moment in time with my camera, and I can't wait to get to be a tiny part of your story! I offer various pricing options and session lengths, so you can get amazing photos that fit your budget and are truly worth the investment. Contact me to get more information on pricing packages and add-ons.

Frequently asked questions  

How many photos will I receive? When will I receive them?

The number of photos you receive varies depending on the length of your session and shooting circumstances, but in general, you can expect to receive about 25-60 photos per hour of coverage. I provide your full resolution edited images in a digital gallery for you to download, print, and share. Turnaround time to receive your photos is generally around 2-4 weeks after your shoot date.

Can I purchase physical prints/albums?

Absolutely! You will be able to purchase prints, albums, and more when you receive your images via the print shop connected to your gallery.

Where do you do shoots? / Do you travel?

I'm based in St. Louis, Missouri, but I absolutely love to travel and will happily join you on your adventure anywhere in the US or the world! I have lived abroad several times and know my way around London and Paris super well, and I'm a pro at navigating European cities and finding great travel deals. When you book me as your elopement/destination photog, you're in good hands! Travel fees will be included in the final cost of your package.

Why elopements?

I'm a firm believer that your wedding should be for YOU. If you're going to spend the money, make sure it's for something that YOU want! There is something just so magical and sacred about a simple wedding, just you and your person, declaring your love and commitment to each other. It doesn't hurt to do it in a beautiful place, either! Not everyone has a family situation that makes sense for a traditional wedding, and that is completely okay. Your wedding can still be special, and you can still share that moment with your loved ones in ways that work for you. I want to help you cherish the memory of your wedding, instead of seeing it as a stressful event. Let's go make magic!

How far in advance do we need to book you?

The earlier the better! It will help you lock in your date, especially for the busy season from March-October. For non-wedding sessions, I require a minimum of 2 weeks advance in advance of your desired date in order to prepare and plan for your shoot. Get in touch with me via my contact form to start the process and get more info!

Do you provide RAW photos?

I put my heart and soul into all aspects of my work, both the shoot itself and the post-editing process, and for this reason I do not provide RAW photos. If my photography style and past work speaks to you, I'm so honored to have you trust me with your memories, and I know we'll make some beautiful images together! I've yet to have any clients who didn't love the photos they received!

Do you shoot film?

I looooove to shoot film! It's the aesthetic I aim for in my digital work, but there's nothing quite like real film photos! I primarily shoot 35mm film, either black and white or color (typically Kodak Portra 400). I can shoot film in addition to your digital images for $100/roll. This includes fees for the roll itself and developing. Please be advised this may reduce the total number of digital images you receive, as I will be balancing two cameras during your session, but I can't wait to create some truly one-of-a-kind pictures with you!

Can we meet with you before we book you?

Totally! I'm happy to set up a consultation call with you over FaceTime, Zoom, or phone to make sure that working together will be an awesome fit for everyone! Just fill out my contact form or email me at hello@staceyvandasphoto.com to request a consultation. I'm also happy to meet over coffee if you're local to STL.
