We used Stacey for our wedding last month, and she came with a second photographer, Justice. Wow, were they incredible. She is somehow everywhere snapping pictures and totally out of the way all at once. Our photos came back 2 weeks after the wedding, and they were beautiful - so artistic and candid. She has also done a wedding for a good friend, and now all of my other friends now want her too. I highly recommend! - Nina Scherrei
What a great job you did photographing our children, Lauren and John's wedding this past Saturday! You and Nick are true professionals as well as very fun and pleasant to be around! We had a great time and were able to relax and enjoy the wedding. Can't say enough about your professionalism and easy going personality! It really shows that you and your assistant Nick truly enjoy your work! We know the photos will be beautiful, fun and natural and can't wait to see them!!!
It really was a pleasure to have the both of you photograph our wedding! So excited to see all the photos.
Thank you very much!

Stacey of SSM Photography did a fabulous job as my wedding photographer on 9/4/2016. She has an eye for capturing great shots and was energetic throughout the entire day. You can tell she truly cares about her subjects and capturing the emotion and small and big moments. She's very professional and did an awesome job of making sure we got all of the shots we had wanted. Every time Stacey would update our gallery with more photos, it was exciting to see the amazing shots she had captured. We are so happy with her work and would recommend her in a heartbeat. - Kelsey Jacobsen
We simply cannot overstate what an incredible job Stacey and SSM Photography did shooting our wedding in August 2017! She and her team were professional, incredibly detail oriented, friendly, and very fun to work with and the pictures she took are absolutely gorgeous. One of the skills that Stacey has that truly sets her apart is an uncanny knack for capturing moments that so many others would miss, many of our favorite photos from the day are ones we couldn't have planned if we had tried.
Stacey is phenomenal to work with, something that starts the moment you get in contact with her. From out very first phone call, Stacey's commitment to her craft was evident. We spent nearly an hour on the phone talking about her approach to photography, her experiences shooting events, and whether that matched what we were looking for. It really felt like fit was as important to her as it was to us and she listened carefully to what we wanted from the day. Throughout the lead up to the wedding, Stacey was easy to get into contact with and incredibly flexible and accommodating with our plans.
We knew we would enjoy working with SSM Photography and, based on her portfolio, we knew we'd love our photos, but what we didn't expect was that we totally love Stacey, too. She brings her all to her work and she is so genuinely fun to be around. We highly recommend SSM Photography!

Words can't even begin to express how thankful and blown away we are to have had Stacey and her team photograph our wedding. She went above and beyond to capture every single moment, tear, smile and laugh. She has an eye for capturing things as they happen, really bringing true candid, raw emotion through her photos, which is exactly what we were looking for in a wedding photographer--not the awkward typical staged stuff. Our photos are incredible and priceless memories that document the best day of our lives in a way that we never could have imagined. Thank you so much Stacey for all you did for us! - Gina Poulos
What an incredible talent! Stacey was our photographer for our wedding and we couldn’t be happier with the results! The formal shots went smooth (thanks to Her and Justus) and look amazing, but I feel where you can really see her skill is when you let her just go for it. Other than the formal shots, we didn’t give her any direction except “do your thing”. That “thing” is an uncanny ability to see what most of us ignore, from the beautiful small moments to the larger take it all in environments. I knew we made the right decision to have her there off the bat, but the end results far surpassed anything we could’ve hoped for. We love you Stacey! - Matt Fischer
Stacey has been my family photographer for 3 years now. She has captured moments in my life from my boudoir photos, to my baby's 1st birthday party, to our yearly family photos ever since then. I wish she would have photographed my wedding, but had unfortunately already hired someone prior to meeting Stacey. We are even considering scheduling new wedding photos with her because we are so disappointed she didn't shoot our actual wedding. My husband and I are both generally awkward in front of the camera and need a lot of direction. Stacey immediately puts us at ease and gives us tips to get the best photos. I love hanging her pictures in our home and even creating all my family Christmas gifts with them. I would highly recommend Stacey for any photos you may need. She shows passions in every picture she take and has a real eye for detail. We love you, Stacey! Love, The Amorosos
We hired SSM Photography for our wedding and I could not be more amazed on the entire process and final product. Stacey is the definition of top tier photography. Her ability to capture that exact moment while making you feel extremely comfortable at the same time was vital in making our special day that much better.
We coordinated multiple vendors for our wedding and none of them could compete with Stacey's level of performance. She was always the first to respond to all communications and never left any doubts. We gave Stacey minimal feedback throughout the planning stage and she was able to design and execute a plan that went flawlessly. As a result, we was able to fully trust in Stacey's plan and all the decisions she was making. This alleviated a lot of stress during the day as we did not once ever have to worry about the management or execution of the photos. We also had a large list of must have photos due to 250 guests being in attendance. Stacey was able to efficiently coordinate all the guests to ensure we were able to get photos with all 250 guests. After the wedding was over Stacey constantly kept us updated in the progress of the photos and had an unbelievable short turnover time for digital copies.
Stacey's professionalism and ability to drive results is key to making any event seamless, stress free and incredible. I highly recommend Stacey for all your photography needs. - Tony Nguyen
I saw Stacey shooting at Forest and Main a few years ago. She had a unique style and I immediately noticed her dedication and talent. The day my fiancé and I decided we needed a real deal photographer, I said "Stacey!!" Luckily, she was not booked and we were locked in!! From beginning to end, I knew we made the right decision. The day of, she and her rad staff, made us feel comfortable and calm. They made sure to make everyone happy while capturing an excellent mix of standards and casuals.
I have to say, as the bride and looking at the previews, I'm amazed at how I didn't even notice them during the ceremony. They were totally discreet and captured every moment and more! Thank you so much to Stacey and her wonderful and attentive right hand man, Justus, for capturing all day for ETERNITY!
We Highly recommend!! - Melissa Coleman
I was engaged June 2017 and immediately started interviewing Wedding Photographers for our October 2018 wedding date. We interviewed about 5 different options and Stacey was the one who stuck out from all of the rest. Stacey was so easy to talk to, she provided great feedback, ideas, suggestions and advice for our big day. She was not a "Yes Man" - we looked to her for all of these qualities because she is a master of her craft and we welcomed the advice. The end result was MAGIC! We are so pleased. Stacey and Justice were a tag team of awesome. Funny, easy going and absolutely nailed it. Even the guests loved them! Thank you a million times over, Stacey - Anne Marie Parente
Stacey and Justus shot my wedding last Friday September 29th 2017 and they did an outstanding job! I can't believe how beautiful the pictures turned out! They managed to take a perfect day with perfect weather and make it look even more beautiful in the photos. They were also very organized and patient. I have pretty large family so when it came to getting the group family pictures taken it could have gotten very hectic, but we were able to breeze through them (even with the six young children in the bridal party). Their ideas for lighting, backgrounds, and poses definitely show how experienced and talented they are and made the pictures turn out perfect. I couldn't be happier and will definitely be using SSM for any photographs I need in the future! - Brittany Logue
SSM photography - Stacey & her team is absolutely amazing! My husband and I got married this September 9th 2016, Very professional, great attitude and so friendly! It's not often you find a business you want to use for everything in your life to cherish the moments and have them forever! Stacey took every photo I pinned and made sure what was important to me as the bride was completed. My husband and my family are so incredibly happy with the images she has captured, each one flawless and stunning! We will most definitely be using Stacey for all our photography needs with our family and friends!!!! - Christina Johnson
I hired Stacey for my daughter's bat mitzvah 2 years ago, after I had used her for school event photography. Wow wow wow...., she can capture "a moment " unlike anything I've seen. Not posed photographs, but you feel the moment through her creative eyes. She has exceptional professionalism and her work speaks volumes. I can't rave about her enough! - Jodi Freedman Cannan
Stacey’s work is absolutely amazing! She photographed our wedding in 2016 and we cannot wait for her to photograph more of our future family life events. Her attention to detail is exceptional and we loved every photo of our beautiful day. She captured some beautifully creative shots of our special day that we will cherish forever. She even traveled close to 3 hours away to our venue. My husband and I are so grateful for her photos, hard work, professionalism, and dedication. � Thank you, Stacey! -Laura Seeley
