I am a wife to Matt and a mother to my sweet Labrador retriever, Goose and his brother Maverick, a golden retreiver. I spent the first 20 years of my career working on satellites and rockets. I wanted to be in aerospace since I was 6-years old and it was an exciting career.
When we moved to the Pacific Northwest, I fell in love with the outdoors again and experienced how much happier people are when they are in nature. That transformational moment was when I was asked to photograph a marriage proposal in the Olympic National Park. I still remember every detail of the moment…how I felt, the tears of joy in my eyes and the beauty of the sun set. I feel so deeply every time I get to photograph a couple or family in nature and that excitement translates to the people I am photographing. And that is why I love what I do.
I appreciate you wanting to get to know me better and I look forward to becoming life long friends. You can check out this blog to learn even more about me!

Kind Words From Others
“My husband and I had an incredible experience with Stacy!
We spent all day hiking/exploring to get the prettiest shots.
She was prepared, welcoming, and kind!
She’s very passionate with what she does and it really shows in her photos.Not only did we receive awesome photos, but we really got to know each other through the experience which made it a more personable experience! I 100% recommend Outshined Photography!!” ~ M&E
Working with Stacy was AMAZING! She was so helpful in the planning process, plus she is just a fun person to hang out with! She knows all the best spots and was able to change our entire plan last minute due to the weather. Despite the rain, it was the best day ever! Highly recommend!! Our photos are amazing, too. We will for sure be back for another session!

"We had our engagement photos taken with the incredible and wonderful Stacy Garfield with Outshined Photography. Stacy knew what she was looking for and when the sun was doing its thing she was doing hers. She worked tons of different angles and captured so many moments that we can now cherish for a lifetime. We highly recommend Stacy!" ~Shelley & Nick
"Stacy was wonderful to work with for our adventure engagement photo session. She chose a beautiful location, brought us an amazing picnic, and made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire shoot. If you and your partner are looking for someone to capture some incredible adventure photos I would highly recommend Stacy!"
