I'm stella. Welcome to the blog!



2016 brought about some amazing things in both my business and personal life – from getting published in a handful of magazines, both regional and national, to integrating film into my workflow, to buying our first house, and finding out I was…

Best of 2016 | WEDDINGS

Kristin and I met in 2013 at Rocky Mountain School of Photography. We were in the same group for the Summer Intensive course, and instantly hit it off!

I am so excited to share Jamie and Drew’s wedding day with you all, friends! These two were married on paper before their big day, but that didn’t stop them from planning this lovely day! These two chose The Barn at The Ranch Club as their backdrop, and it really couldn’t have been more perfect.

My Love,

Today marks 4 years as husband and wife, can you believe it? It feels like it was only yesterday that I walked through that door at the car wash and met you for the first time! I had absolutely no clue that the guy offering me a job back then would be the one I’d be kissing good morning to today. Four years ago on that cold day in May, surrounded by our family and friends, with not a care in the world except being together. I didn’t think it was possible to have that much love for anything or anyone….
