I am a documentary wedding photographer based in the Sacramento area, that services Sacramento County, Northern CA, Napa Valley and The Bay Area.
I also travel to the East Coast docuemtning client throughout the year, specifically the Rhode Island and Boston area.
I capture love stories for the authentically bold, for the lovers of life,
who unapologetically embrace their true selves, and each other, not just on their wedding day.
But every damn day.
How would you describe your wedding photography style?
Documentary with a splash of creative.
Look, weddings are a bit weird, right? For some, having all those eyes on you while you say “I do!” feels, well, strange.
(And that’s why I totally get and encourage doing it your way, even if that means it’s just the two of you!).
All the wedding sites and Insta feeds say to make sure you do this and that and don’t forget that other thing! And more than half of what they’re saying you should do is cram more things into your day.
Focusing on the things hasn’t ever been my style and I doubt it’s your style either.
Is it important to capture the details of your day? Of course.
Knowing you’re probably much like my previous couples, every detail you bring into your wedding day has meaning to you. Maybe you spent your time on your vacations together finding the perfect mismatched set of vintage china pieces for your table settings.
Maybe that cake topper is the same one passed from generation to generation. It once topped your great grandparent’s cake, and now, it’s there for your day.
Maybe you really freakin’ love sequins and yea, you are absolutely going to have your tables covered in sequin table clothes. Do it!
Because those things represent you and who you are.
They’re not just things, they are extensions of yourselves. And what you hold dear
You are interested in infusing your day with YOU, not what other’s say you should do.
Your wedding day is not going be full of ‘shoulds’ and ‘have tos’. Because your life isn’t full of’ shoulds’ and ‘have tos’, right?
Why should the day you celebrate your love together be any different than the way you celebrate living your life.
What I know is, and I know you do too, if you have chosen an item to be present at your wedding, there’s a reason why.
And we both know it’s not to be Pinterest Perfect or to make sure you get published on some major wedding Insta feed.
Hey, if that happens, cool. But that is so not your main thing. And I get that.
What is important to you both, is you are planning this day to represent who you are, as individuals,
as well as who you are together.
And whether you’ve decided to have 200 of your closest people there to celebrate along side you, or it’ll be just the two of you with your cat and dog as witnesses, that’s all good.
Whatever way you decide to celebrate your love is what I am there to capture.
In all it’s glorious loved filled authenticity!

We were just married last Thursday so we haven't received our photos back yet (will review again when I do!!) but I can not speak highly enough of Stacey! She was an absolute dream to work with and integrated herself so seamlessly into the fabric of the day. She never stopped snapping pictures and I'm positive that she caught so many wonderful moments that were so special to us. Not only was she amazing on our wedding day but every day leading up to it - she was incredibly flexible and easy to talk to, even when I was doing the compulsory last-minute panicking! She is absolutely wonderful!Sent on 12/28/2016

Stacey photographed our recent wedding (this past August) and we were absolutely blown away and overjoyed by her every step of the way! She's warm and laid back and was always there to answer questions and guide us along the way. My guests were complimenting her even before we saw pictures - she was everywhere without being in the way, and made everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. And her photographs are perfect - exactly how we wanted to capture the day. Looking at all the images, I'm transported back to the day - and even better, I feel like I didn't miss a thing! I would hire her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone and everyone. Thank you!!Sent on 09/28/2012
If Stacey Doyle were a man, she would be THE Man!! So much talent in such a small package. An A++ value!!!
Stacey has a really creative eye and a very defined look. She's a ninja that is quiet all day then POW! her images blow you away.
Stacey has funky, laid back approach and captures her client's weddings with a unique documentary eye.
