Documenting the story of you

I capture stories for the lovers of moments.

I believe in meaning over eye candy, laughter over labels.
I believe tears of joy are beautiful.
I believe hand holding is a necessary daily nutrient and smiles are nourishment for our hearts.
I believe laughter can heal.
I believe we are all connected.
I believe in the power of stories to remind us of this connection.
I believe each and everyone one of us has a story worth telling.
I believe I am here to help share your story.

Most of all, I believe in love.

I don’t think I can adequately express how beautiful our photos are — we can’t thank you and Shawn enough. You truly captured our personalities — you “got” us. We’ve already received so many complements from friends and family. Many thanks for your amazing work!

These photos are amazing! Thank you for catching such phenomenal shots.

Stacey photographed my quirky and off-the-beaten-path wedding with style, grace and discretion. Never obtrusive; always careful, considerate, focused and observant. If you have an event that requires a talented, intelligent and discreet photographer, she should be your first choice.

The photographs were a perfect representation of the day and I could not be happier with her services.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you approach documenting a wedding day?

From the getting ready until the end of the reception, I am documenting your day as it naturally unfolds.

The only time I will choreograph is during the formal portrait sessions. 

Speaking of formal portraits, how do those work? And what if we don't want them?

For the formals, I always ask for a list of the specific family/friend groupings you wish to have taken.

Once we have completed those, we’ll step away and create some more relaxed, fun images of you both.

However if you would like to focus on enjoying your day and not pull family/friends away for posed photos, that is perfectly fine!
I’ll focus on documenting, you focus on having fun!

You could always add-on a photo-booth in lieu of posed portraits, which is a great alternative to posed formal images.

Do you need to view our wedding location(s) prior to our wedding day?

In short, no. I can be plunked down just about anywhere and be comfortable shooting.

I typically travel to weddings, and have learned how to adapt quickly in most every situation, from a last minute venue change, to unpredictable weather, to, well, pretty much anything Murphy’s Law can cook up 😉

However, if it works out that I am near your venue when you do a site visit, we can certainly schedule it so that I can pop by.

Do you carry back-up equipment?

I always carry extra of everything: camera bodies, lenses, flashes, cards, cords, altoids.
You can never have too many tins of altoids 😉

Even when traveling, I always bring along my back-up gear.

Along with my second shooter, who also carries back-up gear, faulty equipment will not interfere with us documenting your day!

What happens in case of an emergency? Who will photograph our wedding?

It would take something a lot more serious than the sniffles to not be there to photograph your wedding.

However, if the ‘something serious’ happens, I have a large circle of dedicated like-minded professional photographers who I can call on.

They will uphold the contract that we have together, so no worries about extra fees or contract changes.

Are others allowed to take photos during the day?

Of course they can! I’m a big fan of photo taking 😉

I do, however encourage guests to be guests and put their devices down and enjoy being in the now.

You’ve hired a professional with years of wedding know-how and experience, they can breathe easy, it’s covered!

We are having a destination wedding, how do we handle that with you?

Stacey Doyle Photography photographs throughout the Rhode Island and Northern California area.

If your event is 150 miles outside of those areas, or located on any of the islands (Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Block Island)
I require overnight accommodations the evening of your event date, as well as any travel fees associated with getting to your location (plane, train, ferry).

Please contact the studio with details so we can create a custom quote for your wedding coverage! 

How soon will we see our images?

About two weeks after your wedding, you will receive a link to the first draft of you album design.

You will also receive the link and password to your online retail gallery, where you can order prints, add images to your favorites folder, and share with family and friends.

About 3 weeks after the wedding, you will receive your usb via usps or a digital link where you can download your hi-resolution files.

Throughout the whole process I will be sending you updates and what to expect next!

Of course, feel free to contact the studio anytime with questions.

How do the hi-resolution files work? Do we own the copyrights?

The files are all hi-resolution, which means you can print out any size images you wish.

On the usb or within the digital download, you will find information on online photo labs I recommend, as well as your printing license.

The image copyrights are retained by Stacey Doyle Photography studios.
What you will receive is a license which allows you to print your images anywhere, anytime.

Your license does not include permission to sell, modify, or enter images into any contests.

Any additional questions, please touch base!

What's the difference between making our own prints from our usb/digital download and having images printed through the studio?

The images on your usb or in your digital download are hi-resoltuion, that have been color corrected and are ready for print.

Images purchased through the studio are given that extra tlc before they are sent off to print.
That includes custom cropping & light retouching.

The images are printed on archival professional photographic papers.

What options do you offer?

We wanted to make the photography portion of wedding planning as simple as possible.

Most weddings require anywhere from 6-8 hours of coverage.

We offer one option that includes up to 8 hours of coverage, a professional second shooter, an online password protected retail gallery, your hi-resolution files delivered via a usb or digital download, and a custom designed wedding album for 5200.

Contact the studio if you wish to add on extra hours, rehearsal coverage, engagements sessions, and more.

We also adore photographing small intimate weddings and elopements and off-season weddings, so please feel free to contact the studio for a custom quote!

Great, we love everything, what do we need to do to secure Stacey Doyle Photography to photograph our wedding?

Excellent news!
Here’s what you do, give the studio a call or send us an email.

We will send over the booking contract as well as a link to pay your retainer online.

Once the studio has the signed completed contract and the paid retainer, your date will be secured.

So looking forward to working together!
