My Background

My work has been featured in places like Brides, Martha Stewart Weddings, Style Me Pretty, The Knot, Atlanta Style Weddings,  and many other places around the world

I'll be your guide

Don't worry about looking stiff in photos or knowing what to do. I'll be right there by your side, cracking jokes the entire time and curating the perfect moments for you to look back on with joy for the rest of your entire life. After all, it's not only about getting incredible photographs. It's also about having one heck of a good time.

My Approach

It's more than simply curating, creating, and capturing your memories. It's about you simply enjoying those moments, and me blending in with your guests so those photographs are truly felt, not just seen. I take a photojournalistic approach, while perfectly and seamlessly blending that approach with those posed portraits. But I promise you, they're anything but "stiff" or awkward. They're true to you, in the moment, and curated with intention.

've been a professional, full-time photographer for over a decade, had 6+ years as a family & children photographer prior to 6+ years in weddings, and I have photographed thousands of clients over that period of time.




hen it comes to something as important as your wedding photos, I'll coach you through everything. Just follow my lead and have fun along the way. Easy peasy.

Because you deserve



he experience you have on your wedding day means everything. And when booking me as your wedding photographer, I feel that quality should be equally as paramount as the experience when working together. I want you to be smiling, laughing, and feeling at ease throughout the entire process. I want you to trust in me 100%, and I want us to be friends. I'll be celebrating with you every step of the way.

The experience is so important as well for personal reasons as well. After all, your wedding photographer is the one person who will by your side more than any other person on your wedding day (other than your husband/wife, of course)! So, hiring a photographer who has not only the style of photography you are wanting to cherish forever, but also a fun, outgoing attitude is so important - and that's exactly what you get with me. And not to worry - I will coach you through your portrait session, I will help you keep on track with your schedule on your wedding day, and will I be cracking jokes with you all day long. Simply, we will have so much FUN together with everything along the way. And that's the way it should be.

As your photographer, it's also about the results you receive at the end of the day. The photographs should tell your wedding story. And when you receive your online gallery, I want you to feel like you are reliving your wedding day through your photographs. In those photographs, you will see all the beautiful details, the energy, and the pure joy from your wedding day over and over again. And since photographs are forever, every time you look at your photographs on the walls in your house, in your albums, and everywhere else that they might be, you will remember those most special moments in your life time and time again.

I'll be there to photograph details throughout your wedding day, capturing the raw emotions, and documenting the events as they naturally unfold. And everything will be amazing, incredible, gorgeous, and fun. That's my promise to you.

Couple Reviews

"A little over a month before my wedding I had a last minute cancellation on a photographer. I posted on a brides page on Facebook trying to find someone to help. Tamela quickly jumped in and offered a phone consultation that night! From the moment we began our conversation I was blown away with Tamela’s energy and passion for her work. The connection was instantaneous and I know she was the right person for the job. The experience just continued to surpass expectation. On our wedding day Tamela celebrated with us and felt like family! Before we left the venue that evening she even had a sneak peak video put together (from our wedding that day!) to show us some of the shots. On our photo reveal day Tamela made a memorable day even more special by adding so many special touches to show us all of the amazing shots! She was nothing short of professional and personable the entire time. I will Forever be thankful for her stepping in and taking on a huge roll for our wedding!" 

"Tamela will always be a part of our love story the moment we got engaged. She exudes genuine love and care for her craft and for her clients. She did our engagement shoot and did our wedding so beautifully. I as the bride definitely appreciated her hugs and pieces of advice and calm support all whilst doing her job. No words can describe how much we are so grateful to work with her. "

"Tamela at Forever Love is truly the best! She has photographed our engagement shoot, my wedding, a gender reveal, our first family photos and is working with me on another shoot upcoming! She makes you feel comfortable and delivers high-quality prints and images! After she captured my wedding, I told her she had a client for life and it’s still true. If you’re looking for someone to capture a special moment, you won’t be disappointed with her!"

"Tamela was nothing short of amazing!!!! She was great to work with, has a great personality and has a wonderful eye for detail! I highly recommend her for your big day!!!! Did I mention the photos are breathtaking!!!!! If you haven’t hired her you should!!!!"
