Stagi Imagery

Welcome to the Stagi Imagery blog! My name is Mark Stagi and I am the owner and one of the photographers for Stagi Imagery. I started this business over 10 years ago to create fresh and creative wedding and portrait photography. Over the past 10 years our business has grown to now include a few other photographers and many wonderful clients that we serve. We have been creating award winning images in the Bay Area and beyond and are available to travel worldwide. It has been a huge blessing for me to be a part of such wonderful events in my clients lives and I will share some of the fun moments through my blog.

We will share many photos of events and other fun stuff that we are up to in the studio. I will also share a little about myself so you can get a little peek into the always unpredictable life of a wedding photographer and business owner. Our blog is updated often so check back later!

I have to admit I get to work with some pretty awesome couples. After the wedding they are always so stoked on the images and service we provide to them but I always feel like the one that needs to thank them. My clients are so amazing to work with, they give me creative control over one of the most important days of their lives and give me the chance to do what I love to do. It really is an honor to be a part of such a huge day in people’s lives and to really be let into their life. Nich and Catrina were a really, really amazing client I had awhile back who came into the studio to share a little bit about their experience in having us photograph their day. Here are some of their words about working with Mark and of course a few images of their spectacular day!

Our clients love us

With every bit of 100% I recommend Stagi Imagery! Since the first phone call with Mark, I knew we hit gold. He was very responsive in returning my message (within less than a 24 hour period). I lived in NY at the time of my wedding planning and he made every effort to be available for me when I was in California for more planning. He’s very friendly, very personable and very professional. My parents and I met him at his studio in San Jose and from minute one I knew we’d choose him. We met with two other professional photographers but those two photographers didn’t have what Mark has and that’s personality and sincere kindness. It was obvious through Mark’s samples that I could see he knew how to capture the special moments and recreate the wedding day through his snapshots. I loved the artistry in his layouts. With every phone call, Mark made himself available, answered all of my questions and made me feel as if I was his only client . He got me really excited for the big day with his work! The day of the wedding Mark was incredible. His personality got everyone in the wedding party, the families laughing. He captured every emotional moment whether it was a tear of happiness, a look of love, a smile of joy…he got it ALL!! When Mark sent me the slideshow he puts together for a preview of pictures, I just cried. I LOVED what he created, I LOVED his photos! He captured my wedding day for me and it felt as if I got to relive it all over again! Once my mom saw the slideshow she immediately called him and left a message of such joy and happiness. My mom was so busy schmoozing the entire wedding night she felt she missed important moments and she was so overjoyed when she saw that Mark had captured the moments she missed. Also, Mark and his colleague made themselves “invisible”…they knew how to stay out of the way. They did not obstruct any views. I can’t believe I have over 1000 pictures to choose from…I didn’t even know they took that many. Oh, I just couldn’t be happier with his product! I highly recommend Stagi Imagery! Anyone would be extremely lucky to have them at their wedding. I sure struck it rich by finding Stagi Imagery!

Our brides rock!

We get to work with some great brides, here are some words from our awesome couples:

I had to share a few recent comment we got from our brides that just made my day. We put so much into our weddings it just feels awesome when we get such love back from our great clients!

“Stagi Imagery is phenominal!! I sorted through tons and tons of wedding photographers, especilaly being in the central coast area, there were tons to chose Lovers_Point_kristifrom – as that’s a sought after location for weddings. I saw Mark Stagi had won several photography awards and that put me at ease as well as looking at his extensive portfolio of weddings in the area I had chose for my wedding location. Not only was he highly professional on my special day, but he blended well and was almost like having another family member there. The day goes by so fast, that Mark even captures things from my special day I never got a chance to see. So, those little things are priceless! When I finally received my wedding pictures, both my new husband and I were impressed to say the least! It was beyond our wildest dreams what Mark captured for us. Anoter reason to chose Stagi Imagery is because they put an artistic touch to every photograph they take. They have a keen eye for what looks the best! My wedding pictures are impressive, artistic, phenominal, and romantic. Mark even used the same location and created 4 different backdrops for our pictures. Chose Stagi Imagery for your special day! I wouldn’t trust anyone else on something that only happens once in a lifetime! I’ve also used him for Lifestyle portraits for family and again AMAZING job! Kristi Hollywood, CA


“Mark was the MOST AMAZING photographer! He took beautiful pictures and was so easy to work with! He’s perfect at “capturing the moment”. He took so many wonderful candid shots of us and our family and friends. And he’s so nice; he gets to know you as a couple and delivers to you what you want. We’re so thrilled with him as a person and as a photographer. We have the best pictures! :o ) I don’t have a bad thing to say about him!” ~Doug and Lauren

“Mark and his assistant were an awesome team at our wedding. They were fun, easy going and truly made taking photos feel seamless in the midst of all the martinelli_winery_wedding6to do’s on our wedding day. We had seen his impressive work in the past which was why we hired Mark but seeing what he did with our photographs re-affirmed what a great photographer he is. We asked for some fun non-traditional pictures to be taken along with the normal shots of the day of events, bridal party and family pictures and he did just that and more. We couldn’t be more pleased with the work he did. This was one of the most important events in our lives and we know that in the future we will relive those moments by simply looking at the emotion and special moments he brought though the camera. He knows weddings and “what to” and “how to” capture every important detail, it was evident by the phenomenal job they did. Thanks Mark!– Omar and Lissette

We were so pleased with Mark Stagi and his work! He makes you feel comfortable right away. He makes the session fun and he really listened to what we wanted for our photos. Our pictures were absolutely gorgeous. Mark and our second photographer were really able to capture the feel of our wedding day. We’ve received so many great compliments from our family and friends who have seen the pictures. Thank you so much Mark, for doing a really amazing job!

Mark and his assistant, Stephanie, were…how can I say it…more than I could have DREAMED of! They were so fun to have at the wedding and our pictures are AMAZING. They really were able to capture the feeling of the wedding and it seems like the pictures tell a story of the entire day. I would HIGHLY reccomend Stagi Imagery for your photography needs!

When I started planning my wedding, I knew a good photographer was going to be most important. Photos are the only thing you will have as a memory of your wedding! When I searched his website, I started crying looking at photos of complete strangers. So I knew he was ‘the one’! Working with Mark was so easy. He always made us feel comfortable, was on-time and professional. I have heard of couples who were disappointed with their pics, but NOT US!! Our engagement and wedding photos are so beautiful, artistic and emotional. Mark completly exceeded our expectations!!! I am so happy we chose Mark and HIGHLY recommend him to anyone! If you are an engaged couple who wants the best for their wedding, make sure you book Mark Stagi!
