hi! i’m stella, wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer who believes there is beauty in the biggest and smallest of moments. My style is intimate and honest, inspired by natural light and human connection. I love giving my clients a meaningful experience that they can look back on, and tangible images that last for generations.

My favorite days are spent capturing the authenticity of life and love, cooking up yummy, homemade dishes to share with my family, and wandering the mountains of Montana with my husband, daughter, and son.
