Stacey Bode Photography » LIFE SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED

Masthead header

I recently visited Arizona for the first time, and I’ve never seen anything like it. The gorgeous canyons don’t even seem real while you’re actually touching them and staring at them. I love when any moment in nature overwhelms me with perspective, making me feel small in the best way. If you ever need to feel grounded, hang out at the bottom of a giant canyon for a spell. I’m glad I got to share this experience with two fantastic friends. Btw, any of these photos where I make an appearance were either taken by Elicia Bryan or Linnea Frye. Also, if you travel with me, be prepared to have your picture taken…a lot. I enjoy photographing landscapes, but home base is always people. With that said, I hope you enjoy photos of rocks and people taking photos of rocks. AZ, I sure hope we meet again.

I love second shooting at weddings! It’s even better when you do it for a friend. I had the pleasure of taking pics of Hannah and Alex’s lovely wedding day for the wonderful Elicia Bryan Photography. Yes! We both have a fun and relaxed style, so we have an absolute blast shooting together. Here are a few images I snapped. I mean, trees…and romance…and deer!

I love that this shoot features a wonderful lady, an incredible horse, a cool barn, all while demonstrating a modern take on bridal portraits. They don’t have to just be a bride looking solemnly out a window or standing next to a wagon wheel. Lesa shows us how to bring personality, fun, and ethereal charm to these types of photos. Yes!! Shoot coordinated with Flower Child Weddings, and makeup by Grace Armas Hair & Makeup Design.
