Hello and thank you for considering Stout Studios! We have a deep passion for the fleeting moment. We are drawn to love, laughter, energy and light. We strongly believe in honest photography and understand it is our responsibility to document your story, without becoming part of the story.
My name is Jessica VanTassel. In 2005 I established Stout Photography and in just a few years, we quickly grew to be one of the busiest wedding photography studios, photographing nearly 1000 weddings. In 2014, after graduating SCAD University with a major in photography, Kara joined the team as an associate photographer. In 2016 we added Chris and Holly as assistant photographers. In 2017, as our team had established as a multi-photographer studio so we decided to change our name to Stout Studios. Together with Chris, Holly, Kara and my husband Eric, we make up Stout Studios.

We booked Stout Studios for our wedding in St. Augustine Florida for October 2019. Kara did our engagement photos in Savannah Ga where we live and they are incredible. Everyone we've shown has been so impressed with them and I can't stop looking at them myself:) I am so excited for our wedding, I know those photos will turn out amazing as well. Kara was so sweet and personable and such a pleasure to work with. We were a little nervous about posing for pictures, but all of our photos looked so natural and definitely showed our love for one another. I am beyond grateful. I would highly recommend Stout Studios, I think they are very reasonably priced for the high quality work they produce and Kara was so friendly and easy to work with and has even been helpful with identifying other vendors in the area since it will be a destination wedding for us.Sent on 06/22/2019

Couldn't be happier!
Kara and Jes from Stout Studios were absolutely amazing! I'm not sure I've ever met anyone more personable and enthusiastic about their profession than these two women. Kara was there for me throughout the planning process, answering any questions I had almost immediately and just checking in periodically. In fact, the entire process with Stout Studios is very stress free. The day of the wedding was even more so. They took all of the photos we requested but were also super unobtrusive. Within a week we had a sample of the photos they took and all of them were gorgeous. We also received all of the digital prints much sooner than expected. As a bonus, although they are based in Jacksonville, they are willing to travel. We can't be more happy with Stout Studios, and will definitely be considering them for our future photography needs.Sent on 05/13/2019

Beyond Your Dreams
Jessica and her team at Stout Photography will 100% exceed your expectations. The energy and thoughtfulness she, and her team possess are indescribable. They are incredibly thorough and professional while still making you and your guests feel completely at ease. She knows how to direct everyone through the chaos and emotions of the day. The photographs we received are outrageously stunning and one look at their portfolio would serve as proof of this. Anyone would be beyond lucky to have Stout capture such a momentous occasion. Stout is THE single best investment one could make for their wedding day.Sent on 03/21/2019
By far one of my absolute favorite Wedding photographers, Jessica Moores for Stout Photography is funny, fun, and INGENIOUS!! I love every opportunity to work with this talented team, and recommend their work to anyone who wants that certain special something when it comes to capturing those most important moments!
Jessica is one of the most creative photographers in the area! We are constantly amazed when we see her work. She also makes sure to coordinate with us so we don't get in each other's way during the wedding, which we really appreciate! We recommend her to all of our clients!
