Stacey Bode Photography » LIFE SHOULD BE PHOTOGRAPHED

Masthead header

Earlier this year, I had a wonderful adventure out west. I visited breathtaking canyons, spent time with good friends, and got to second shoot this wedding at The Icehouse with my pal Elicia (Elicia Bryan Photography). As if that wasn’t enough, the wedding was a surprise! The guests, and even the parents of the bride and groom, thought it was a bon voyage party since the couple was about to move to New York. It was so cool watching folks enter the ceremony site to discover what was really planned. There was an abundance of beauty and family love. A glorious wedding I won’t soon forget.

We had so much fun with this bridal shoot (a collaboration with event planners Flower Child Weddings). The lovely Sam really embodied the relaxed, modern, seaside wedding look we wanted to convey. You can almost smell the salt water and feel the breeze. This would be the perfect look for a bride who wants to be comfortable, stylish, and timelessly beautiful.

I’d had the pleasure of working with Kat before, so I knew this was going to be a great shoot. However, the fact that she needed stylized portraits for her dance and fitness business was super exciting! We shot these at Dance 101, where I’ve recently been taking classes. Yesss! Kat did a wonderful job demonstrating the strength, beauty, and dramatic coolness of movement. She has some very big ventures on the horizon, so I may have to update this post when things move forward. In the meantime, I’ll simply thank her for allowing me to combine my love of photography and dance. Thanks, Kat! You’re a total rockstar!

I’m happy to announce that I’ve started offering some in-studio options for headsthots. Yay! There will be multiple background options to choose from, and one or multiple look sessions will be available. Pricing starts at just $135, including print-quality image files and touch-up edits. Just hit that “contact” tab if you’re interested. Woo hoo! Fun fact…this blazing hot Atlanta weather may have contributed to this new venture. Necessity breeds invention!
