Stagi Imagery

Welcome to the Stagi Imagery blog! My name is Mark Stagi and I am the owner and one of the photographers for Stagi Imagery. I started this business over 10 years ago to create fresh and creative wedding and portrait photography. Over the past 10 years our business has grown to now include a few other photographers and many wonderful clients that we serve. We have been creating award winning images in the Bay Area and beyond and are available to travel worldwide. It has been a huge blessing for me to be a part of such wonderful events in my clients lives and I will share some of the fun moments through my blog.

Reel Life Video, Artistic Photography and Videography Combined at Mountain Winery

I have talked about the Reel life photo/video products that we do a lot in the past and we are finally finishing up the editing from the ones we did last year. The editing process is a lot of work and these take some time to create but are still something that I really am excited about and are such a powerful way to capture a wedding day.

We got to photograph an amazing wedding up at mountain winery last year for Sean and Reyna, even though there was a little bit of rain they had a beautiful day (complete with a rainbow) and a great celebration. Check out this little view into their day with our Stagi Imagery Reel Life coverage.

I believe that avoiding packaged foods may be the first step to help lose weight. They could taste good, but ready-made foods have got very little nutritional value, making you try to eat more simply to have enough vitality to get throughout the day. Should you be constantly feeding on these foods, switching to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more vigor while feeding on less. Good blog post.

Fine Art Wedding Photography at the Mountain Winery – Saratoga

We kicked the season off this year with a great wedding up at the Mountain Winery in Saratoga. They have done some great remodels over the past year and really have a beautiful location for a wedding. Rene and Ben had a great wedding up at the winery, it was a small and intimate day with their close family and friends and a really fun group of people. They also had a great band that I got to work with for the first time that was cranking out some nice tunes all night. Check out for a band with some great energy!

Here is a quick little highlight slideshow with the story of Ben and Rene’s day!

Who am I and what am I passionate about?

Since we get so many new visitors to the site now I wanted to share some quick information about myself and what drives Stagi Imagery along with a little video that I did awhile.

Passion is what its all about for us. True passion and love for photography drives me each and every day (and a few Mocha’s along the way). Photography has been a love of mine since childhood and I shoot not only to provide my clients with the most awesome images they could ever image but to also fuel my creativity and need to capture compelling images. When I was a kid I took a photography class and was mesmerized by the ability the camera had to capture a moment that would freeze time. One split second moment could capture the essence of a person and it intrigued me so much I knew I had to pursue this further.

I am a very passionate person about everything in life not just photography. From my family to all things tech (don’t get me started on my love for Apple products) I believe in living your life with purpose and passion.

What type of style is your work? This is one of the most common question I get from brides and grooms and it’s always a great conversation. “What’s your style”. For me that is really a difficult question to answer with one word. Am I an artistic photographer? In a way yes, but not fully. Am I a photojournalist? In a way yes, but not 100%. There really isn’t a catch phrase or key word that can describe an artist and what you do. Maybe that is the best answer I am an artist with many different experiences and passions that all shape my “style” of photography or my Art. I do really believe that any artist is shaped by their life and that their artwork is always growing and evolving. Normally when I get that question asked to me I like to give people a short view into my life so far, I think its really important for people to know who your photographer really is, not just their credentials. My degree in art and studying photojournalism did help shape my photography but really not as much as certain personal experiences have had. The way I interact with my clients and work with people at a wedding is from years of always learning.

One phrase that I love that really fits my style of shooting is “La Dolce Vita”. In Italian this means “The Sweet Life”. For me it means to enjoy life to the fullest, to give lots of hugs and kisses to your loved ones, to cherish the moment. Our work is all about embracing “The Sweet Life” and capturing moments that will tell the story of your life for generations to come

If you want to be inspired then come on in and lets chat.

Wedding Highlights

Yesterday was iPad day with the release of the brand new iPad. The retina display is just remarkable and I had to create a new slideshow to see how my portfolio can look on this amazing display. I have to say I am pretty pleased with how great the images look on this display compared to the iPad 2. I won’t go into any long tangents on the iPad, if do you want to see some sample images to compare the iPad 2 and the new iPad check out this article I wrote over here: The New iPad Camera vs. iPad 2 Camera. But getting back on point I put a little mix together with some of my favorite moments from the last few years. I always get to enjoy so many amazing weddings so sit back and enjoy a few great wedding moments :)

Absolutely right. Going green is the future in every sense. Because if we don’t go green, then there might not be a future at all.

Reel Life the Fusion of Photo and Video

Last year we started a brand new type of coverage to add to our Fine Art Wedding Photography that I have been calling “reel life”. This is a really cool blend of HD video, still photography, audio and music into a cool multimedia movie. It can add so much more depth to a wedding to include a few snippets of video and audio to bring back the memories of the day. Here is a quick preview of Ryan and Jeanette’s day at Leal vineyards from last year. There are some more that we are finishing up and will showcase very soon so stay tuned!
