My story: 'I started shooting weddings in 2009, just before my last year of graduationg BFA in Photography from the School of Visual Arts in New York City and since then I can't stop doing it. It's so much fun!! I love people in love and telling the story of their Big Day with the visual power of photography.

I love shooting all kind of weddings, ethnic, traditional and nontraditional. But as an artist my favorites are the unorthodox one ...I love working with people in love and truly show their emotions to each other , but one who are also fun, little weird and a little bit spontaneous , people who believe that original wedding photographs are based on original moments created between the photographer and the subject in front of the camera. Quirky moments are acceptable ;)



Before I book your wedding I will meet with you personally for a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Every couple's story is an unique one and that's why it's important that we know each other before the Big Day in order for me to capture your story and not someone else's. We'll talk about your expectations, your ideas and my suggestions about your wedding photography. If you book your wedding with me you get a free engagement photo session, bodour or trash the dress session. When you are booking me I want you to feel confident that you are making your right choice.

INFO FOR PHOTOGRAPHY

What primary photographic style do you identify with?
Contemporary, Photojournalism, Portraiture
What do your packages include?
Albums, Custom Graphic Design, Digital Files, Flush Mount, High Resolution Images, Prints, Proof CD of All Images, Thank You Cards
Do you have liability insurance?
No
Do you offer special techniques such as hand-coloring or toning?
All my images are edited and color corrected using professional softwares and ready for printing. Any special effects can be added like BW, sepia or any other creative effects that will make the image stand out as a piece of art in your wall or wedding album.
Do you have experience shooting in various lighting situations?
Yes. And that's what is exciting about wedding photography. Being able to adopt to any changing light - daylight or tungsten makes me be even more creative.
Is your media preference film or digital?
Digital.
How many photographers do you work with?
I usually work by myself, but depends on the event and the package. I have great network of very talented photographers who could help me with second shooting.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes, I do guarantee, except of serious illness or an accident. Hopefully that never happens. However, I could always recommend other very talented friend photographers - equally capable to me who could substitute me in case that happens. ( it never happened)
Do you sometimes book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No, I never book myself for more than one event per day or per weekend, no matter what the event will be and if it's 2 hour or 8 hour event. To me is important to focus on the job and be able to do my best for my clients.
Do you have a replacement photographer in case you become unavailable on the day of the event?
Yes, I do have.
Do you bring back-up equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, I do.
Do you charge hourly or full day?
I do charge for full day of 8 hours wedding, because I believe that this is enough time to cover all the important moments in order to tell the story of the Big Day from getting ready to cutting the cake. However, hourly options are available too if the event is less than 4 hours like engagement session, city hall wedding or just reception-bride and groom photos.
Are you available to shoot extra hours? If yes, how much do you charge for extra hours?
If it's necessary I am available to shoot an extra hour or two. Hourly prices are available upon request. Please shoot me an e-mail.
Do you charge for travel?
Yes, if it's more than 80 miles round trip from my studio in Concord. Otherwise, it's included in the package.
How soon after the event are the proofs ready for viewing?
In 2-3 weeks after the event. You can see them online. Each client is provided with private online gallery password protected.
In what format are the initial proofs offered?
High res jpegs and low res watermarked images.
How long can the client keep the proofs?
Online gallery expires in 6 months from the posting date. The DVD is yours.
Do you retain the copyright for the photos?
Yes. Copyright is own by the professional photographer and the the client owns the usage rights only unless the client wants to purchase the copyrights.
Do you reserve the right to publish the photos?
As discuss between the photographer and the client upon our contract. The only way to market my work and for my clients to see it and choose me to be their wedding photographer is through visual presentation.
Do you provide the digital files and/or negatives (or copies of the negatives) to the client?
Yes.
Will images be available for viewing online?
Yes.
What kind of albums do you offer?
I offer various sizes and paper types of albums. Please, ask me for details.
When will the client get the final album?
Once the client sees the photos from their online gallery, they can select the images they like and send them to me. Of course, I can do this for you as well and get your approval to use the selected images for the book. After I do the design I will send the client the layout for approval. Once everything is approved I will place the order for production-printing. For design 2-3 weeks, printing and shipping usually takes 3-5 weeks. However, that all depends on the time and the season the order is places and how fast we'll go over the chosen images and the design for the album. Restrictions apply!

Stani is an amazing photographer. We met prior to our wedding day and went over all of our must have photos and we got every one. She is soft spoken and some may say a bit hard to understand at times but she is professional and personal. She was not afraid to get in others way to take the photos we'd requested but did so with such ease. We are so happy with all of our wedding photos and have ZERO regrets in selecting her to document our wedding day.

She was super helpful and responsive. We went over what pics I wanted and with who, and we got all of them. She was also really quick. She was six months pregnant, it's was 106℉, and she went through 200+ pics that look fabulous in the sun in an hour. Really cool under pressure and great to work with. I can't recommend her enough!

Stani is sweet & fun, accommodating, and a very talented photographer. You can tell she loves what she does; it shows in her work. I chose her as my wedding photographer because I liked how artistic her shots were. I got married in the woods with some unique circumstances- outhouses, steep hills, and long, windy, one lane roads. None of this seemed to bother Stani even though she was 6 months pregnant! I highly recommend her. Thank you so much Stani!!

She is an amazing photographer. She is very sweet, easy to work with and very professional. I love her ability to capture the moments that meant the most to me. She also was very creative, she took an amazing photo of my husband hand and his ring while he was holding me, while we were dancing. She has a great ability to capture a story, I love the photos she took of everyone while we were off guard ( as you would say not posing for the camera). I would highly recommend her as a photographer.

- Stani Thank you for all the lovely photos and your hard work, I love the photo you posted and I don't mind if brookside has the images.

Sincerely Patricia & Kevin Khuth

Stani did a fabulous job at our wedding! We had a small family-style wedding in a redwood fairy ring late afternoon-ish in mid-October, so lighting was challenging to put it mildly. Stani's shots of the wedding were absolutely spectacular. She didn't do just staged shots but somehow managed to be everywhere in the most unobtrusive way and take remarkable pictures that captured the essence and true spirit of the ceremony. This was a second marriage for both of us and we both had kids from prior marriages, so it was a very emotional experience for everyone involved and she captured that perfectly. She also has a great eye for detail - we didn't expect to see so much of what it really felt like in the photos afterwards. All our friends who looked at the photos later commented on how beautiful they were and how the shots made them feel as if they had been there. Stani was also very professional and a real pleasure to work with. We were lucky enough to book her at a time when she had a 30% promo, so we feel like we got a great deal (but would have booked her without thinking twice about it even if she didn't have the promo). She came to the wedding spot to do trial shots, spent time with us getting to know our preferences, and was on the spot before anyone else got there on the day of the wedding. She processed the photos very quickly and was very gracious in allowing me to download a few on a really short notice to print for my family, who were leaving back for Europe in a couple of days. In the end, we got all our photos on a beautifully prepared cd, no extra charges, plus we got an 11x17 print of one photo and two other 8.5x11 prints. She also retouched several photos for us. I am really happy with the service and priceless memories we got from Stani and would highly recommend her to anyone!

Stani is an amazing photographer to work with. Her style is sophisticated, whimsical, fun, and detailed. She's willing to work with you and listen to what you want. She has a good eye for taking amazing photos!

I met Stani at a friend's wedding and my husband and I liked her style so much, we hired her to be one of the main photographers at our own wedding. She traveled from Cali to New york to capture our big day. The outcome far exceeds our expectations. The photos were absolutely beautiful! We had over 700+ photos and every photo told a story. Stani was able to capture every emotion, and moment of that day.

If you need a photographer for any event. Stani Photography will not disappoint!

My husband and I got married in August in Brooklyn. Stani was amazing the day of the wedding we took a lot of photos in three different locations. She was very professional and also helped us take amazing pictures and captured a lot of great moments. I could not have hoped for a better, nicer and more talented photographer! If you are getting married any time soon you need to reach out to her and book her ASAP! :)

P.s.: Our groomsmen were also very loud and being boys and she handled herself so great and professional! I really appreciate it! :)

We had our legal ceremony in New York City - it was just the two of us and my best friend. Our parents could not attend and therefore we wanted to tell them the story and to capture the moment with some finesse and photo journalistic touch. Enter Stani!

Stani's work made our City Hall marriage look like a fairy tale! She did a phenomenal job capturing the grit of the New York City streets all around us against our French Riviera wedding mood! Our parents were overwhelmed with emotional looking at the photographs because Stani captured us, and our characters...It was absolute pleasure to yield to her direction and create such unique composition in our photos. Everyone who looked at the pictures remarked how creative they were.

Hiring her will be the best and easiest decision we made!
