Stratman Imagery stemmed from a love of creating and making people feel beautiful and loved. Even still, it is my motive at the core of every session. What started with friends, missions trips, and foreign street and lifestyle photography, has now blossomed into this very business. It all began with authentic storytelling and it will always end as such.
When I thought I wanted to pursue a degree in graphic design and attend school in NYC or "anywhere but here", I instead found myself with a camera strapped around my neck and friends willing to pay for my time. The Lord's plans were greater than my own. I quickly fell in love with portraiture and then with couples and their love stories. I fell head over heels for the mountains I lived among and felt like there was something beautiful to be discovered around every corner. I no longer yearned for "anywhere but here", but rather the very Earth where my roots were deep. That is my beginning.
Moments pass, memories become fuzzy and the day will come when you're old and gray and maybe the only thing you remember best is your love's name.
The one thing that matters most - Your Person.
It's more than pretty pictures. It's the reminder of the chill of the air, the way the sun shone through the trees. It's remembering the whisper your grandmother gave you before you walked down the aisle and that your best friend cried in joy, by your side.
