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
