    Artistry cannot compare to other photographers

    Weddings can be chaotic. However, Kara and Jes (her assistant) were very easy to work with, very calm, and very thorough. They arrived early and scouted the area for the best props, backgrounds, and lighting. Their artistry is beyond belief. When we saw Kara's initial set of pictures, approximately 1 week following the wedding, we were speechless! We hoped for the best photos to capture those special moments and received majestic pieces of art. I would definitely use Stout Photography again!

    Excellent job capturing our day! Highly recommend!

    We cannot say enough wonderful things about Stout Studios! Jessica was so wonderful to work with and did an amazing job with both our engagement photos, as well as our wedding! She was a pleasure to work with as well!! She did an excellent job giving us direction during both shoots as we aren鈥檛 the most comfortable in front of the camera and she made us look amazing! She was wonderful! She was very responsive to all calls, texts, and emails. On our wedding day, Kara worked with her to take the photos of the groom and groomsmen and to be a second shooter! We were thrilled to be working with both of them. It was a pleasure to get to know both Jessica and Kara and rely on them for such an important part of our big day! They are so talented. They both exhibited extreme professionalism, efficiency, and attentiveness to us and the details! We cannot recommend Stout Studios enough! You won鈥檛 be disappointed relying on them capturing your big day!

    20/10 would recommend! Perfection

    I truly could not have imagined more perfect pictures. I didn't know anything about photography, what kind of theme I was going for, etc. I've only had professional pictures taken once or twice before, and I'm a little awkward. They sent me a questionnaire a few weeks before the wedding and I am so glad they did! Take the time to fill it out and be as detailed as you can. They went above and beyond for me (even when it was VERY hot) and made me feel comfortable and confident. There wasn't a single shot where they weren't adjusting someone or making sure it was just right, and we all looked incredible. Even in the June heat, you cannot see a bead of sweat or a hair out of place. I had a cathedral length veil and it was perfectly placed in every, single frame. I've had people reach out to me that I haven't spoken to in years and say "Your pictures are amazing! It looks like a fairytale." Don't be afraid to be detailed, I promise Jessica and Kara will work with you and make your experience wonderful. On top of all of that, they are very responsive and patient. It was worth every single penny and I would do it 100 times over. These are something you will have forever (and you will look amazing forever!). 20/10 would recommend, and will be using them for any future events.

Lead Photographer

In 2015 I married my childhood pen-pal under a 200-year-old tree in Jacksonville, Florida.

I had my first dog, Buddy, for 13 years. He passed in 2016. I now have two Goldendoodle's, Templeton and Bernard that are the most adorable sweet balls of fluff you'll ever see. We also have two cats (one is a Polydactyl) I like cats. I LOVE dogs.

One of my favorite smells is a tennis ball.

In 2015, I began competing in body building competitions and discovered I have a passion for fitness and nutrition.

I photographed 500 weddings before I turned 30.

I am the youngest of four children.

I鈥檒l do just about anything for a good picture. Will you?

Lead Photographer

In 2014 I graduated from SCAD University having majored in Fine Arts Photography.

I adopted a wonderful dog, Tyson in 2012 but lost him to cancer in 2016. Since then, I adopted Ruger and Luna, the Border Collie duo.

I grew up fishing with my family and am now considered a seafood connoisseur!

If I'm not at the dog park you might find me camping in the Carolina's.

I've explored miles of the Atlantic Ocean floor.

I hang out with my parents almost everyday. They're cool, I promise!

In addition to photography my other creative passion is painting and crafting.

Nothing makes me happier than when I'm with any dog!
