Hi, friend! I'm Stacey. I'm a film & digital photographer based in St. Louis, Missouri and traveling internationally to capture authentic love stories with a nostalgic and documentary style in the US, Europe, and beyond. Based on my love of stories and literature, my desire to document a feeling, and my passion for film photography, I work with creative couples who want an alternative to traditional wedding photography, because I believe the big and small moments of your story are what make it unique, and capturing them will capture you at your best.

From the cheesy Hallmark movies, to classic rom-coms, to classic literary romances, I love love stories. Specializing in wedding and couples photography was an easy choice for me, because I could never be bored when I’m documenting real connection and candid moments.

I can't wait to get to know you!

xo, stacey

I'm so glad you're here!

WELCOME!

First things first,

Let's get into it.

My approach

artful // 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 & Every Package includes:

bespoke planning curated for your needs & values,  every step of the way

unique & artful photography focused on emotion and authenticity

professionally edited online gallery

full image ownership + printing rights

custom timeline creation so that you can all have the experiences you want and none you don't

You want a different kind of wedding day. You're not about the same old wedding planning stressors. You want an intimate and customized wedding experience that reflects your personality and can truly be the best day ever for you.
You're adventurous and you love to travel the world.
You've seen other kinds of photography and it just doesn't feel like you.
You want something creative 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. I work one-to-one with my clients to plan their perfect day, designed specifically for their values and aligned to what's important to them for their wedding.

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  

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 consider London & Paris my second homes. I'm a city girl at heart, happy in almost any city in the US! I'm also 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.

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. I usually recommend booking a minimum of 6 months in advance of your date, to allow for booking travel, lodging, and activity logistics. 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 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. 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.

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.
