About Andrea Stark
I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in the Rocky Mountains with over 10 years experience in the wedding industry. As a wedding photographer, my style is photojournalistic by documenting your day in a way that tells a cohesive story, but I also like to create beautiful and timeless portraits. My work has been featured in online publications like Rocky Mountain Bride and The Wedding Chicks.
I am totally passionate about getting to tell the stories of my couple’s life journey. When he finally gets down on one knee, and she says “YES!” Their first kiss as husband and wife; When they’re expecting their first child; I get to document a newborn in a super short season of their life, so that their parents will never forget how small they actually were. I get to capture how their family grows. I get to tell the story of a graduate’s journey in the next exciting chapter in their life. I get to freeze a moment in time that no one will get to experience again except through that picture. I get to curate and creatively document one of the best days in a family’s life when they see their baby, marry the person they’ve always wished for them to marry.
I live with my husband and daughter in Breckenridge, Colorado. I absolutely love being centered in the mountains! After all, the mountains have always been a part of my life. I grew up in small-town Mountain Home, Arkansas. Then I went to college at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas, which is set on a hill in the Ozark mountains. There I received my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Broadcast Journalism and Secondary English Education. That is when I photographed my first wedding in 2009 and fell in love with the art of storytelling a wedding day through photography.
In my early twenties, I wanted to be a journalist, because I grew up watching the news. As I got older I became very interested in the process of how they told their stories. Now, I get to be one, but in a different kind of way.
I would love to get to know you better! I love when clients end up becoming good friends and it all started with an email! Please reach out and let me help you in any way I can. I can’t wait to talk to you!
Annie and Connor, Engagement Session
From the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU. This is such a gift you bring to people and I could not be more amazed with your photos. We will have these in our home for our entire lives.
We were both blown away by the time and effort Andrea put in for our engagement shoot. She scouted out areas ahead of time. She was willing to be adventurous and had knowledge of the local area and weather patterns. She immediately made us feel comfortable in front of the camera and genuinely seemed to care about us as people. She got to know us in the short amount of time we were with her and this added to the overall experience of the shoot. Her eye and talent for photography is evident from the start and the unedited sneak peek she gave us was already amazing. Not only do we have great photos, but also a new friend! If you’re looking for a photographer of any sort in the Breckenridge area, she’s definitely the one to go with!
Emily, Bride - Crested Butte Mountain Wedding
I can’t say enough how much we appreciate the opportunity to work with Andrea on our wedding day. Andrea did such an amazing job capturing the love of our wedding day and the true essence of us as a couple. She was fun to be with, keeping picturing taking light and not too serious, just like us. Andrea was flexible, kind, and independent. Looking back at our photos brings tears to my eyes and so many wonderful memories, not just of us, but of all the people who were with us on our special day.
Alyssa, Bride and Family Portrait Client
I met Andrea in the summer of 2014 when searching for a Wedding Photographer. She was the first photographer I had met with and I didn’t need to look any farther. She was so easy to connect with, and right away I just loved her spark and passion for life and for photography.
As the years have gone on we’ve been lucky enough to welcome 3 boys in 3 years to our family. We’ve had her do our family photos every year since our wedding. It’s certainly not easy have 3 little toddlers trying to pose for family photos, but not once have I ever felt stressed working with Andrea. I’ve actually found that in this season of our life I love working with her even more! She’s so understanding and patient with our young family!
The pictures speak for themselves. Each year I think “Yep, these are the best I’ve ever seen.” …. and then she does it again the next year!
Tanner and Bryanna, Proposal
Highly recommend. Andrea was simply Amazing!! She helped me every step of the way in planning the perfect spot to propose and coordinating the timing and the surprise element all tailored to my needs. She even went on site several hours early that morning prepping the location and setting up and sent a detailed plan of how to get to the exact spot. She stayed hidden to capture the moments all the way, with a photoshoot after. Photos came out spectacular and my fiance and I could not be happier with the whole experience!!
