About me

Hey There!

I’m Stacy and I am based in Bismarck, North Dakota. North Dakota is a state people tend to overlook, but I have a lot of pride and love for where I live and grew up. Most days you can find me snuggling with my puppies in leggings and a baseball cap, watching Netflix, or chasing my puppies around the house with my camera because they are the cutest things to have ever existed. I am mostly known for being a crazy dog lady and my love of traveling. People often refer to me as outgoing and willing to talk to anybody. I love spending my days being outdoors kayaking, biking, and playing soccer. The things I am most passionate about in life are my family, friends, and my two blue heeler dogs Nala and Nika whom I refer to as my furbabies. I photograph weddings and couples and am looking for people who not only want me to capture their big day, but also show and tell their love story. I consider myself lucky to capture love stories for my job, and I almost always tear up at the weddings I shoot. I not only feel honored to be a part of the most important day in someone’s life, but seeing couples in love, committing their lives to each other truly impacts me and I am blessed to experience these moments.

As a former art major graduating from Minnesota State University with a Fine Arts degree in photography, I enjoy all types of photography. I am known for my love for night photography. I enjoy shooting long exposures of the stars, milky way, and light painting.

When I’m not working on photography, you can find me hiking, camping, or reading. I love spending time with my family, I have four siblings and they are truly my best friends. My fiance and I love traveling to places where we can hike, backpack, and camp. If you’re dying to hear more, here are five things you might not know about me:

1. My friends and family call me Steve instead of Stacy because I adore comfy clothes, hats, and sometimes dress like a dude
2. I am a beer snob and love dark beer including stouts, porters, and black ipas
3. I coach youth soccer and love every minute of it
4. I am obsessed with macaroni and cheese
5. I love brainteasers, board games, and coloring

Still here? I would love to get to know you and tell your love story. You can get ahold of me by filling out the contact forum below or by messaging me on the Ily Studios Facebook page. Check out Ily Studio’s Instagram for my personal photography endeavors. Thanks for stopping by!
