  • Stufflebeam Photography --- Candid, Captivating, Real Weddings

    Good food, beautiful decorations, every one dressed their best, soft music in the air...  Weddings are a party and I love celebrating them with my brides and grooms!


    Hi all, my name is Stacy Stufflebeam and I love capturing weddings!  I started out 5 years ago after I graduated college with a degree in Visual Communication from the University of Utah.  Ever since my first wedding in 2011, my business has grown and I have grown with it!  I have found the pictures I love the most are the real, fun, blissful moments you almost always get at weddings.


    Some couples are trendy, some are goofy, some are sweet and romantic.  What ever their style, I like capturing pictures unique to the couple and their personalities!


    This wedding was at the end of May in Boise, Idaho.  The bride and groom decided not to see each other beforehand so I went with each separately to a park near the wedding to get some pictures with them and their bridesmaids and groomsmen.

    I love getting the little details of the day that the bride and groom may forget about. Like mouthwash!  The groom pulled this out right before he walked down the isle... Not sure why he didn't take care of this beforehand!


    The Ceremony was in the Mother of the Bride's backyard.  They brought in a bunch of round tables and had the isle snake through the tables.  This is becoming popular since after the ceremony, every thing is ready for dinner!

    Speaking of dinner...  This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding!  Whether you have appetizers or a gourmet meal, the food is always fantastic.  This dinner was catered by a local Boise restaurant and they really delivered!  Tri tip, chicken, or rainbow trout, and look at those amazing veggies!

    After the ceremony, it is always a party!  This is the time that I usually fade into the background to capture those fun candid shots while bride and groom let their hair down.

    Good music and relaxing/dancing with friends are on the agenda for the rest of the night as the sun starts to go down and the sweet smell of summer dusk is on the air!


    Every wedding is unique and fun, and I love that I get to be a part of these couple's special day!

    Why San Francisco City Hall is the best venue to elope?

    Ok, so he or she popped a question and you said Yes, congratulations! You started day dreaming about your unforgettable Big Day, but paying off wedding debt its not really a priority on your to do list after the wedding. How about eloping? I know, sounds so easy, but where, how soon, how much would that cost?

    Idea#1 Choose a place that you always wanted to visit, hopefully it’s on his bucket list too. Hire a local independent wedding officiant and you are all set, right? Not really, you still need a hotel, airplane tickets, dress, but on top if it some places, like beaches, parks and landmarks will still require an event permits, even though its just two of you (plus officiant), and now you are dealing with more paperwork.

    Idea#2 Hire a wedding planning agency who specialize in elopes and could arrange everything, from hotel to photographer, but if you are budget oriented couple and don't want to leave any decision making to someone else than you are back to beginning.

    Idea#3 Get married at San Francisco City Hall! Why? If it was good enough for Marlin Monroe and Joe DiMaggio than its good enough for me... I got marry there too. :) San Francisco City Hall offers an elegant yet affordable setting, perfect for small and big parties. The beautiful Beaux-Art style architecture of City Hall makes it a wonderful backdrop for your wedding photos. An abundance of high arched windows letting natural light pour in and white marble structures make it one of the most elegant wedding venues in San Francisco.

    I photographed many weddings at SF City Hall , but every time I go back I find something new, different angles, light coming though the side windows. But seriously, below are some very good reasons why you should consider SF City Hall for your wedding venue.

    Location, location, location. Its elegant, spacious, weatherproof with great natural lighting.

    As a wedding photographer I prefer natural light over the fanciest studio lights, but not all weddings happen on a sunny days. What if it rains? You don’t have to worry about the weather, because ceremonies are held indoors and one of the best photo locations are inside anyways.

    Cost Effective. The ceremony performed at Rotunda (top of the Grand Staircase) cost only $76 + $103 for a wedding license. Just a heads up, a lot of people decides to get married over there (3 ceremonies every 30 min) so it can get busy. If you want to splurge a little, or give yourself more privacy during a ceremony you can rent a Fourth Floor for a $1,002 per hour.

    How soon can I get married at San Francisco City Hall? Ceremonies are performed Monday through Friday from 10am to 3:30pm. If you are flexible you can get married as soon as next week, but if you are planning to make your elopement a weekend thing than book your ceremony few weeks in advance because Friday reservations fill up quickly. City Hall do not accept ceremony reservations beyond 90 days in advance, unless you are reserving a privet space (4th Floor or Mayor’s Balcony) then you can book the ceremony a year in advance. Remember to book your license appointment first.

    Wedding and Honeymoon in One. Honeymoon somewhere beautiful sounds great, but after you just used all the travel budget and vacations days to elope where you gonna go?. How about combining the wedding with a Honeymoon? San Francisco is full of attractions. Have a picnic at Crissy Fields overlocking Golden Gate Bridge, visit Alcatraz Island, California Academy of Science, SFMOMA, or The Exploratorium, and try some of the great food at Fisherman’s Wharf at Pier 39. Then hop in a cable car and enjoy the view as it takes you though the step hills of the city. Did I mentioned Sonoma and Napa Wine Country is just one hour away from San Francisco?
