what to expect when hiring me

It seems like just yesterday I graduated college with my bachelors and masters in exercise science and was working in an outpatient cardiac rehab working as an exercise physiologist. I did that job for almost 5 years, but it was just that a j.o.b. I knew I was missing something, the feeling of passion, having a purpose and knowing I was fulfilled. I’m the kind of person who likes constant change. Doing the same thing every day just isn’t my jam.

But, what I did know is that I always liked taking photos, of course noting fancy just regular everyday photos with my iphone. One day while I was hitting the gym I had mentioned to a trainer that I liked photography but had zero knowledge about it and that it’s a super expensive hobby. They said that one day I will look back and regret not buying it. So, the next week I just went for it. I went out and purchased a camera, but because this was something I was so passionate about I also sat on YouTube night after night telling me husband that I am not going to sleep until I figure out at least the basics.

From that day forward, I just kept pushing myself and that is how I got myself where I am today. Photography has allowed me to feel so free and live the life that I had always dreamed of living. I am able to travel, meet new people and see the world in a different light. I can’t express how much fire and passion I have for photography and I’m so grateful that I took a huge scary leap to start something new.

I'm Staci Brucks, 30 years old, obsessed with shooting weddings and capturing couples in love, with authentic, raw and unposed moments. 


I help maintain the pace of the wedding I adore photographing, and keep it going smooth. I always try to make people feel as comfortable as possible and take care of everything so the bride and groom have nothing to worry about. I am very ambitious, adventurous, impactful, bold, passionate, easy going, empathetic, helpful, and flexible. And I never stop learning and growing because I want your experience working with me to be amazing!
