Hello! Just a note to let you know how much I enjoyed looking at your work in the Lake Express Terminal in Muskegon last Friday! I love taking photos and we had a wonderful visit to MI and beyond, returning on the Lake Express to Milwaukee and then back to Madison, where we live. Sometimes people glance at work on display – I really pay attention and wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed your photo art.
Stacy, we just had some hot, new legislation to post about. We were able to put this up on the website without issue – and we are the leaders in getting this info to the public! Thankful for your good directions earlier on how to post to our blog. Love how easy it is, and how great our website looks. Happy New Year!

“Hi Stacy, I want to thank you for the fun, time, and perhaps a lot of work – in producing “Healing Images” for the Lemmen-Holten Cancer Pavilion in Grand Rapids.
Now that I have survived a year of treatments and am nearly cancer free, I have a quiet time early each morning, with devotions and bible reading, ending with my walk through your book and so enjoying the beautiful photos, so many of which we have seen from a lifetime in this area, and our sailing on all of the Great Lakes. Thanks again.”
“I just received my latest BLUE Magazine in yesterday’s mail and, as is always the case, I was blown away with the cover photo (Spring 2011, Spring Loon photographed by Stacy Niedzwiecki, stacyn.com). I’ve never seen such gorgeous cover photos and wish BLUE came every month. Your covers are always uncluttered and absent of annoying verbiage, banners and other distracting elements. I’m a magazine junkie and of the nearly 20 periodicals I subscribe to, your covers are definitely the best and most artistically done. Thanks for doing such a fantastic job for all of us to view.”

“Stacy is a gifted photographer and, web and graphic designer and visual specialist with a keen eye and limitless work ethic. Her photography work is stunning with a remarkable attention to detail. I have worked with Stacy through the Rockford Area Arts Commission where she has been a champion for the commission’s growth and development, a participant in Rockford’s annual Art in the Park event and an inaugural member of the Rockford ArtCapsule. She has used her graphics and web design capabilities in the redesign of the Commission website and has donated her time, work and resources to Commission and community activities.
She is intuitive, capable and a delight to work with. I highly recommend Stacy.”

“Stacy did a great job on the Newaygo County CVB website. She worked with me to provide the right features and the right look for the site. She was willing to work with my limited budget and gave us great results and continues to provide administrative help when we need it.
In addition, she is a wonderfully gifted photographer and some of her work is displayed here at The Stream. She is multi-talented and great to work with!”

There are quite a few West Michigan photographers who do really excellent work, but what makes Stacy unique is the way she blends humor, vision, passion and technical expertise together to produce absolutely stunning photographs.
Regardless of the the season, I always find myself looking forward to the next thing that is going to appear in her Flickr Photostream.”

Your calendar arrived today and it’s gorgeous – plus you signed it! Awesome. Your calendar is now gracing my wall and I’m loving it. You do beautiful work. I’m even hesitant to write on it! I told my Mom you have some of these calendars left and I believe she sent you an email about them. My Mom is a big fan of yours, too. Our very own Michigan celebrity.
We’re proud of you, kiddo. Keep up the great work. God bless “

More than a week has passed since you visited Tri-Town Sportsmans’ Club, and treated us to your excellent photo program. I would have written earlier, but I wanted to get some feedback from our members. It was all very positive! Several commented on your artistic ability to get just the right angle on some very familiar scenes.
It was great to have you and your family there, and we thank you for taking the time to share your work with us. I can see why you are getting so much recognition, and I know that it will continue.”

I am so amazed at your beautiful pictures of God’s AWESOME creation all around us. God has truly blessed you with some incredible talent! We have never met, but after the holidays, I do look forward to meeting you in person. I have enjoyed and have bought many of your cards from the Lemmen Holton gift shop as I was waiting for my husband during his cancer treatment.
On January 15th he died and I so very much appreciate the beautiful picture you sent me as a celebration of his eternal and glorious home he entered.
Photography is very therapeutic and healing to so many. You truly have no idea how powerful your ministry of photography has been, touching so many lives. Keep up the GREAT work that God has blessed you with!”
Blessings to You,
“I’ve been following your work via your e-newsletter and I’ve been very impressed. It looks like you’re doing a great job with showings, awards and publication in Michigan. It’s motivating to see a fellow nature photographer do so well.”
All the best,

“I just viewed the newsletter you sent. Awesome pictures as usual. The images make me homesick! Funny how you take for granted what you have…and don’t realize it until it’s gone. I lived three miles from the Grand Haven pier for years, and very seldom visited. Now I live 300 miles away, and can’t wait to see it again.”
— Dennis Wiegand
“Besides being an excellent photographer, your customer service is A+! I received your email and printed out the gift certificate with no problems. Thanks for having the little lighthouse logo on it – the gift recipient totally loves lighthouses!”
— Pam Grady
“Just arrived home from Festival and I want to say “Thank you!” again for the Sunrise Over Little Glen photo. I shall treasure it as I treasure all of my memories of my dear brother, Wayne. He certainly was a special person and he thought a lot of his friendship with you, Stacy. Life is full of gifts, isn’t it? And you surely do have an eye for beauty.”
“Stacy: Excellent and very inspiring program last night. Your use of light as well as composition put so many of your images over the top. Thanks again for the inspiration – and it was great to finally meet you. “
— Pine River Audubon Society
I love our new web site. You’ve done a terrific job, and I am very happy to recommend you to whoever asks. I think the part that intrigues people the most is the ease of updating the site. I’m even happier we met my personal goal of going “live” by the first of January. Thank you for everything!”

“I don’t do this often, but with the holidays coming up there’s always a question of gifts for the “hard to buy for” folks. I want to make a plug for a friend of mine who is an amazing nature photographer.
Stacy is someone I’ve known for many years and she has the gift for capturing the majesty of Michigan’s natural resources in photographs. She has won awards for her photography and she has a lot of her work displayed in the Lemmon-Holton Cancer Pavilion in downtown Grand Rapids.
Her website is www.michiganmoments.com. If you’re looking for gift of high quality and excellent value for the dollar please consider her work.”
— Bert DeVries
“I am so excited that I won the drawing for one of your prints! I have been off work with the flu – but I was checking my email at home and read the great news. I have been looking at your site and I’m totally confused because I love every single one of them. I will definitely let you know once I have decided. Thanks again and I wish you the best with your continued success.”

“We are so very pleased with the new website that Stacy designed for us! Her professionalism made this whole process an easy one for me and our staff. Stacy was always willing to take time to answer my questions and share with me her knowledge of websites. I acquired many useful tips and tools from her that will keep our new website current, easy to navigate, and consistent.
As our website designer, Stacy was able to implement several free or low-cost features that allowed us to finish the project for less than the original quote. It was a lot of work, but I enjoyed the process. Stacy is a great person to work with and I am grateful to have gotten to know her.
Thank you Stacy for your patience and guidance! If Gaines Charter Township has a need for someone with your expertise in the future, I know who I will call.”

“I have used Stacy for logo design and have also purchased photography from her. I must say that I am impressed! Her photography is amazing. Everyone who sees her photo in our house comments on what a fantastic picture it is. Another photo we gave as a gift was the hit of the Christmas gift giving.
As far a my logo is concerned, what can I say aside from “My logo is awesome!” I had seen a rough image in my mind of what I wanted and Stacy took that, expanded it a little and created the perfect logo for my business.”

“I hired Stacy to produce a brochure to be used for some marketing that I was doing. I had used another graphic designer to get the project started and that person just was not getting it. I knew what I wanted in my head and I went to Stacy. She put on paper exactly what I was thinking and what I couldn’t get the other designer to understand. Stacy is extremely creative and does a great job at a reasonable price.”

“Thank you so much for assisting me with the photography gift print for my sister. She loved the photo. You do excellent work. I think you’re a great and beautiful person, and I’ve enjoyed meeting and talking with you. You can count on me to stay in touch, and I will always refer YOU for potential job offers.”
“I LOVE our new website! Stacy does such an excellent job. The site looks great – and it’s so professional. It’s everything I dreamed it would be. I know how hard Stacy works and I really appreciate her prompt service. I completely trust her integrity and couldn’t have chosen a better person for the job.
Thanks for being you!”
“Stacy is a highly creative individual whose well-rounded talent with graphic/web design and photography provides remarkable solutions to her clients’ needs. She is a very dedicated professional who will make sure the job is completed to your satisfaction!”

“The Positive Youth Development Department at Wedgwood Christian Services was in the market for a talented graphic designer with a servant heart. We were referred to Stacy and gained so much more than what we were looking for. We have been blessed with an incredible community partner who is fabulously talented but who also has a heart for community youth.
Stacy has worked with us for two years on a project called Pure Passion for Fashion. She worked intimately and patiently with us until our vision came to reality. Her service is delivered with heart, excellence and professionalism; three qualities that led us to honor her with the Spirit of Giving award in 2005.”

“When my husband and I decided to pursue modeling for our 8 month-old daughter, we needed some natural shots that captured her individual character and charm. She was quickly picked up by three agencies and continues to model today. Stacy is great with children; she’s patient and really makes them feel at ease. She has been more than willing to take extra time to work with us until we got the shots we needed.”
— Kysha Frazier
“Having grown up in South Haven, Michigan and living in a home by the lake, I saw the town turn ever more into one with a tourism base for the local economy. I saw endless quantities of pictures of Lake Michigan, lighthouses, pier shots and the beach, as well as seeing the real Mc Coy every day.
But Stacy’s photography work continues to vault above the ordinary. She really is gifted and makes the well-worn brand new again.”
— Charles LaRue
“When Starlite Kitchens & Baths decided to develop a new logo and website, we were referred to Stacy Niedzwiecki. Stacy was very professional and helpful in guiding us through the process. She very quickly developed a logo that we all loved. She followed the logo design with the development and completion of our new website. We wanted to start our web presence with a relatively simple website, and Stacy was able to fulfill our needs at a reasonable price. She completed the project within the time frame and cost we had discussed up front.
At Starlite Kitchens & Baths, we pride ourselves in getting things done for people when we say we will. It is a pleasure to work with Stacy because she shares our philosophy for professionalism and friendly service.”
