Rae Stark Photographer

Rae Stark

I moved around the world every three years growing up and photography was my only constant.

Photography is what allows me to be comfortable in any situation as I discover the unique personalities of the people and their surroundings.

From landscape photography to children and families, I’ve spent the last ten years falling in love with capturing a moment that will last beyond a lifetime. I’m young, energetic, and treasure the laughter I share with my clients, whom I have the pleasure to call friends.

I spent a lot of time with my uncle when I was younger and he was a photographer so naturally it sparked my interest in photography.

I am a people person so it really helps me bring out my clients personality during their portrait session.

What is really enjoyable for me is to create a great environment with lots of laughter and fun.

Capturing memories that last forever is what I love most.

Daryl Deaton Photographer

Daryl Deaton

When I was 10-years old my parents gave me a 110 format compact “spy camera” for Christmas.

I was instantly hooked on photography. I was taking photographs of everything and anything. At the age of 14-years old I was given a 35mm Pentax K1000 camera and at that moment I knew photography would be my passion in life. For my first paid job,

I photographed a family who when I gave them their prints cried with overwhelming happiness. Capturing the emotion of the moment is what drives me to be the best photographer I can be.
