“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever… It remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”    – Aaron Siskind

A photograph has a magical quality of telling a story without words, bringing to life memories, people, feelings and emotions... all in just a single frame.  How incredible is it that we can revisit a moment in time, decades after it happened, and feel it? 

As a child I remember sitting between the stacks in my school's library surrounded by piles of National Geographic magazines, drawn in by photographs that told stories through light and shadow, movement, culture, and environments in a way I had never seen before. They made me feel the story they told, without having read a single paragraph.

The honesty and emotion that flooded those photographs began a lifelong shift in the way I observe the world around me. Constantly inspired by light, movement, human connection, emotion... the smallest of details and the biggest of spaces... I tell your story with these things in mind.

Film, my primary medium, has become the foundation of creating timeless, romantic, and meaningful images for my clients. While digital photography has its time and place, there is magic in the way film holds onto light and documents movement that can’t be replicated easily.

The intention and thought behind every frame provides an opportunity for me to be truly present in how you express love, and in turn, create honest and meaningful photographs filled with light and love,  for you to cherish well beyond your wedding day.

60 years from now, as you reminisce about the people and place that surrounded you on one of the best days of your life, you will be able to hold these tangible memories and feel the way you felt all those years ago. 

I can't wait to create these memories with you.

"Stella is a remarkable photographer and an artist in her own right. Our pictures are at once timeless, poetic, and true. Stella has the ability to immortalize fleeting emotions and capture moments of authenticity. In addition to being very professional, she is also incredibly kind, soft-spoken, and attentive. On the day of the wedding, Not only did I have complete trust in her, I also genuinely enjoyed her presence. 

Photography was one of the most important elements for us, as is often the case for engaged couples planning their wedding, and it can seem like a difficult decision to make, but I can guarantee that you can't go wrong with Stella."


From Manon + Philip

"My husband and I adored working with Stella! From the moment we met her via Skype, we knew she was the right person to capture our wedding day. 

In addition to her obvious talents behind the camera, what drew us to Stella was her personality. We wanted a calm presence on our day to keep us relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. She brought serenity amongst the chaos.

Post wedding, she has been so helpful in ordering prints, designing the album, and providing extra surprises. We hope to connect with her the next time we are in Montana for additional shoots. We would hire Stella again without question!"

From Cambria + Neal

"You have found the one! Stella is genuine, confident, patient and THE BEST PHOTOGRAPHER!!! From the very beginning she provided us with excellent details of how she would capture our special day From our engagement session, walk through, and finally our wedding day.

 Stella continuously made us feel relaxed and totally captivated with each other, sometimes even forgetting that our photos were being taken…she’s that good! When we received our wedding photos the emotions of that day came right back. She has the natural ability to capture moments that leave you with pure joy inside.

Thank you Stella, you out did yourself."

"We eloped from Texas to Montana in the winter and my husband planned everything. He chose Stella as our photographer and from day one she was there to help him. She went above and beyond her call of duty as our photographer, even going as far as bringing warm apple cider in a thermos for us, because she knew how cold it would be outside while taking pictures! 

Stella was the most personable photographer, helping us feel comfortable IMMEDIATELY! She is just so sweet and genuinely cares about her clients as people. Her work is breathtaking; the compliments on the photos haven't ended! We just love Stella and we are so glad my husband found her and chose her because we know we've made lifelong friends!"
