We are Daniel and Lindsay Stark and we’re photographers. The two of us met on the first day of a college photography course many moons ago, Daniel walked in 5 minutes late. There was only one seat left and it happened to be right next to Lindsay.
We didn’t quite know it yet but it was the start of our relationship and future career. We married in June of 2008 and quickly started Stark Photography. Since then, we have photographed over 300 weddings and portraits all over the globe. Our travels have taken us as far as Australia and Greece, and as local as the neighboring blocks around our home in Portland, Oregon. No matter where we are, we love the adventure of meeting new people and photographing new stories week after week. Creative projects, interesting people and beautiful stories are what fuel us. We love to keep pushing, keep learning and keep shooting.
Besides priding ourselves on the art of photography, we love traveling, meeting new people and experiencing new things. You can find Daniel catching waves or running marathons, wherever he goes. Lindsay loves yoga and is a certified yoga teacher. You can sometimes catch her in a pose, be it on land or underwater.
For our wedding clients, we want you to look back at your photos and no matter how many days, months or years have passed, we want you to feel the same happiness as you did on the day you were married. Our approach is to capture the spirit and emotion of your wedding in an artistic and creative way while at the same time revealing moments that might have gone unnoticed.
Our portrait clients might be artists, creatives, wellness experts, physicians, authors, entrepreneurs, engineers, professionals and so much more. Every person is unique and every session aims to capture their essence. The personality as well as the brand. The soul as well as the vision. We want to give you images that are powerful, effective and real. To attract the clients you want and express who you are and what you’re about. Portrait sessions have changed in recent years. The average headshot is now a powerful tool for making a statement and conveying your message. We want to help you put that message out, through the vehicle of a photograph.
Your experience is as important to us as your photos. We spend time with you before your session, whether wedding or portrait, to learn your story and create a vision for your photography. During the shoot, we are laid back and fun, while also directive and knowledgable about what looks best for you. Basically, you don’t need to worry about a thing. Let’s get to know each other, get ready to create something special and just have a good time. Trust us when we say, the photos will speak for themselves.
