STACI MITCHELL

A CALGARY ALBERTA BASED WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER

I live in Calgary with my husband Paris, our old black cat named Dexter and our rescue pup, Busy. We met on Tinder six years ago and had a bit of a whirlwind romance, moving in after only one month. Much like a lot of the couples that I work with, when planning our small wedding in 2018 it was important that it was fun, laidback and just felt like us. I have over three years experience and have shot over fifty beautiful days. You're serious about tying the knot with the love of your life and I take my part in that serious too; which means I'm fully licensed, insured and can professionally handle every situation that may arise on your wedding day. But I’m also here for the party! I love laid back ceremonies, dance filled receptions and sentimental details. Your big day is not just a photoshoot for me. It's important that you enjoy all the fun that you have been meticulously planning for months. Thats why I make photos enjoyable by providing clear direction and keeping portraits easy and natural. I help you spend less time posing and more time celebrating with your friends and family. Cause you deserve to enjoy cocktail hour just as much as everyone else! When I’m not documenting weddings you’ll find me dancing in my kitchen, enjoying one too many cups of coffee, binge watching Law & Order, hanging out in my studio and running around the backyard with Busy.

When it comes to photos lighting is everything! Being a wedding professional I know that everything doesnt happen at "golden hour." I know how to handle every lighting scenario from harsh ceremony light at noon to dark reception rooms at night. No matter where you choose to tie the knot, and no matter what your day looks like; I'll show you in your best light.

I believe the magic happens in those quiet in between moments. When you're no longer posing and when you least expect it. The best moments are the things you can't plan like your mother tearing up during the ceremony or that feeling of pure joy with your besties on the dance floor. That's the true heart of your day and these are the images I live for. Sometimes you won't even know I'm there but that sweet memory is now forever frozen in time for you. 

I love the in between moments

You can bet i'll break out a speaker and throw on some jams so you can loosen up and get groovy. I got all the bops from Destiny's Child to Backstreet Boys. Come prepared to bust a move.

I know how important family is, my mom is even my best friend! And while this day is for you and your partner, it is also an incredible moment for your families. Which is why I take great care when it comes to formal family portraits. I construct every family portrait list personally to ensure no one is forgotten and we can move through this portion of the day efficiently and on to the party!
