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.

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.

We had a great experience with Kara, she was very patient with my family and was very helpful with placing us in poses, which is necessary when you have no idea what to do besides smile. We will definitely be using Stout Photography again in the future. Our pictures turned out amazing and I could not have had a better session.

The best of the best!
Stout Studios was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Kara photographed our engagement session. It was a dream! The quality of the pictures and the talent behind them is truly a work of art! Kara and Chris photographed our wedding in December of 2018, and let me tell you, they were perfection! Every single picture taken was phenomenal, and they captured so many sweet moments on the dance floor of family and friends. Once our families saw the pictures, they went on and on how gorgeous they were and how awesome Kara and Chris were. You will regret not using Stout Studios for your wedding or event. THEY ARE THE BEST! I am totally using Stout Studios for all of my photography needs in the future! Thank you for making our perfect day that much more perfect!
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!
I have had the pleasure of having Stout shoot one of my cakes and the photos were incredible. We also are partners of the Carvahlo Family Winery preferred vendor team, She has an amazing eye and she is able to truely capture the moment. I would recommend Stout Photography to anyone looking for professional photos.
