Listen to what 5 of our past wedding couples to have say about their experience with Stark Photography.


Danny & Sophia
Cabo Surf Hotel, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Sophia and Danny's wedding in Mexico by Daniel Stark PhotographyWhen I saw Daniel and Lindsay’s work and began to follow them on Facebook. I hadn’t even met my now husband, but I knew who was going to photograph my wedding. Wedding photographs can be a little awkward and cheesy. I know I’ve seen a few cringe worthy shots. Daniel and Lindsay’s work is so very different. It is editorial and unique. It is timeless and doesn’t try too hard. It is original art. Daniel and Lindsay are also professional and extremely fun. We had a blast with them and felt totally at ease on our big day. One of our guests recently commented after seeing our photos, “Did they have 25 photographers we never saw?” My response? “I don’t even remember them taking photos.” I feel like we lucked out in a lot of ways. I’m sure they will only grow in popularity and will be increasingly difficult to book. This is the stuff celebrity wedding photographers are made of. We are obsessed with our photos. Evidenced by the fact that we’ve probably watched our slide show about 300 times (maybe more). If you’re looking for photographers that can capture the emotion of an epic day in beautiful photographs, look no further. This might be best vendor choice we made.

Shiann & Stuart Green Villa Barn Wedding Daniel and Lindsay, We don’t know where to start.  I knew from the moment I saw your pictures online that I had to have you as our photographers. Your vision and creativity with your photos is outstanding, and even though it is six months after the wedding, I cannot stop looking at them.  You both were so gracious, professional and organized; you didn’t miss a thing!  Everyone who has seen the photos cannot stop commenting on how beautiful they turned out.  Thank you for giving us the memories that we will cherish forever.

Dan & Staci
Cannon Beach, Oregon Coast

Syaci and Dan's Oregon Coast WeddingDear Daniel and Lindsay, You guys were SO amazing! Our family members were talking about how friendly you both were and how excited they were to see our photos because they were all saying that you guys were EVERYWHERE! I heard this from a couple different people, “They were even laying on the ground taking photos!” “They were REALLY working hard to make sure you were going to have some photos you guys are going to love.” It’s true! We can’t wait to make large prints of for our new life together as husband and wife for our home. Thank you doesn’t begin to express the happiness in our hearts…but…Thank you SO much to you and Lindsay for making our day and the memories so special!
Much Love,
Staci and Dan

 

 

Tore & Hillary
San Francisco City Hall, San Francisco, CA

Tore and Hillary's wedding at San Francisco City HallEvery once in a while, when I am having a hard day and need to feel better, I look at our wedding photos. Daniel and Lindsay’s ability to seamlessly capture all of the joy and excitement of that day is truly a special gift. My wife and I, our families and friends, will cherish those memories for the rest of our lives. Plus, we planned our wedding by ourselves and the stress of all of the details was at times overwhelming. But knowing Daniel and Lindsay were our photographers, allowed us to be able to let go and trust that one crucial element of the day, our photos, were completely taken care of.

 

 

 

Scott & Kate
Montsalvat,  Melbourne, Australia 

Scott and Kate Melbourne, Australia Wedding by Daniel Stark Photography.Daniel & Lindsay, Having shot a number of weddings as a second photographer, we were very keen to not only find a team that he knew he could trust to shoot his wedding and would instantly bond with on the day (its a long day together if you don’t gel!), but also finding someone with a fresh pair of eyes to Melbourne was very important to him. Daniel Stark Photography not only met those expectations, but the finished product simply blew us both away. Sitting on a balcony in Santorini on our honeymoon, overlooking the famous caldera with a glass of wine in hand, and viewing the photos for the first time was something that will stay with them for the rest of their lives! You two did such an amazing job with our special day – we couldn’t possibly have even dreamt beforehand that we would end up loving the photo set as much as we do! Forever thank you! Scott and Kate

 

Jeff & Christina
Ayai, Napa, Cyprus

Jeff and Christina's wedding in Cyprus by Daniel Stark PhotographyDaniel and Lindsay – when I first met both of you at my sister’s wedding I realized you weren’t there to just take pictures as you were able to bond with the wedding part and after seeing their wedding photos we knew we had to you for our wedding. With an overseas wedding and 3 days of shooting, you quickly integrated into our wedding party and captured the moments better than we could have ever remembered. Six months after our wedding we still receive emails about our photos as everyone who views the photos believes they were in your shoes. Your professionalism and outgoing personality won everyone over in Cyprus and thanks again for capturing our wedding with precision and beauty!!

Nick & Alison
Portland, Oregon

Nick and Alison's wedding in Portland, Oregon.Dear Daniel & Lindsay, We want to thank you so very much for capturing every special moment of our wedding day. Looking at the photos months later I still get choked up! I can’t tell you how many compliments we have gotten on the pictures, my favorite is that they are “emotional and artistic.” So true. Besides taking wonderful pictures you were such a pleasure to work with. Nick and I literally felt like you two were are close friends and we trusted you whole-heartedly. On the day of, I was a total wreck and honestly getting my picture taken was the last thing I cared about! You made it so much fun, and had a calming affect for me that day. You two are the best and we will continue to recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer!

Jen & Jen
Hoyt Arboretum, Portland, Oregon 

Jen & Jen's Portland Wedding at Hoyt Arboretum.We planned our wedding around Daniel’s availability.  Need I say more? I’m a wedding photographer too, so I knew from the beginning that choosing our photographer would be the single most important decision we would make as we planned our wedding.  It was more important than clothes or flowers or even the venue, because none of that compared in value to the ability to relive our wedding memories when we’re old and gray.  What I wasn’t prepared for was how awesome the experience would be. By the time our wedding day rolled around, we were completely at ease in front of the camera, and Daniel and Lindsay blended right in with our people as he covered every angle of our wedding day. Although we always knew that hiring Daniel Stark Photography would be the best wedding investment we made, it’s a total delight now to watch and listen as everyone else realizes it, delightedly soaking up all the memories and emotions of our wedding through his artful documentation.

 

Alex & Kim
The Governor Ballroom, Portland, Oregon 

Alex and Kim's wedding and Tea Ceremony at the Governor Ballroom in Portland, Oregon. Daniel and Lindsay, You two are amazing! Your photography skills are amazing and the photos are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I can’t get over how fabulous the photos are. It was really nice to sort of relive the day again. Everything went by so fast that we missed out on a lot of moments you were able to capture. We loved our engagement photos and love the wedding photos even more. We absolutely adore all of the artistic photos you have taken, which is actually the exact reason why we wanted you to shoot our wedding in the first place. I can’t wait to frame these pictures to put up in our home. Thank you to both you and Lindsay for giving us the best wedding gift ever!
Best wishes,
Kim & Alex

Ben & Alice
Portland, Oregon

Alice and Ben's Portland WeddingDear Daniel and Lindsay, Thank you so much for the amazing work you did at our wedding. Our pictures are beautiful. After looking at your previous work we were expecting a lot from our photos and we were completely blown away when we received them. There are so many shots where my husband and I turned to each other and said “when did he get that one?!” you made it so easy for us to enjoy our wedding reception while you captured every moment beautifully. We really enjoyed having you as a part of our wedding. You and Lindsay have such great personalities to be in this business. You were so kind and fun to work. Since our wedding congratulations have gone something like this “we are so happy for you…who was your photographer? Your pictures are AMAZING!”. We’ve even had single friends who have firmly stated “I am using your photographer when I get married!”  Sincerely, Alice & Ben
