Stacey Bode Photography » LIFE SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED

Masthead header

About a week ago, I got to do a pretty wonderful photo shoot. My pal’s swell fiance gave her a photo shoot with her awesome pup, Dillon, who was having some health issues. There were many pats, and hugs, and treats, and kisses, and laughs, and licks. I’m writing this through tears, thinking of how our pets save our lives in little ways every day. Sadly, today a hard but selfless decision was made to allow Dillon to leave this life gently. All I can do is hope for the pain of loss to eventually transition into only happy memories. Sweet Dillon, you gave love, and were clearly loved so much in return.

    ellen leahy - u so captured Dillon so wonderfully! Thank you for your great work!

This is a really wonderful family. Not only are they the absolute loveliest people, but I’ve had the privilege of photographing them for years. In fact, I’m about to hit the 10-year mark as a professional photographer, and they were one of the first families to hire me. I’ll be doing a special post of my shoots with them over the years…if I can find all those old discs and drives! They are just the coolest, and I’m very fortunate to know them.

One of the reasons I was excited to shoot this wedding, was because of something Ann said when I first met her. She emphasized that the most important thing to her and Trevor was creating a fun and joyful atmosphere for the people they love. I could tell that she really meant it. True to their words, on their gorgeous day, they never seemed like a couple up on a wedding pedestal, and instead were consistently intertwined within everyone’s enjoyment of the day. It was a lovely and emotional day that won’t be forgotten by any of the people lucky enough to be a part of it.

    Elicia - Beauteeeful as always, Stacey!

It was perfect that this shoot took place on a lovely, foggy morning. It brought back memories of photographing this wonderful couple’s incredible Halloween wedding a few years back. They said their I-dos on top of a mountain, on a day that was also moody and misty and gorgeous. It’s kind of the coolest thing that I got to help them celebrate the birthday of their sweet little twins. I think the world of Sara and Scott, and it was really special and joyful to see them again. They have created such a happy and fun family. It’s just the awesomest.
