Meet Tamela


My favorite part is the love stories. I guess you could say that I am a big ol' sap. I LIVE for these stories! From a very young age, there are two things that I have always loved, reading romantic novels, and taking pictures! Capturing the pure, authentic, raw emotion between two people, that spark, that connection, THAT is why I left my corporate job and dove headfirst into turning my passion into a full time business. 

Fun fact time... I also have a collection of cool vintage cameras. Which I'm sure Quinn wishes I would stop adding to. I also offer film photography as an add on item, so if you love film as well as digitals and not just prints but that good old fashioned character that film cameras brought, then let me know and I'll get you a customized quote! 

I have been published internationally, in over 100 magazine articles and awarded 'Best of Atlanta Wedding Photography award from 2020-2023'.

I am so excited you're here! I am a wife, mother, and I enjoy perhaps a bit too much creamer in my coffee. I am a full time wedding, engagement and portrait photographer based out of the Atlanta Georgia. I absolutely love capturing timeless, bright and airy images with a pop of color, authentic emotions and could not imagine doing anything else than what I am doing right now!

Even with it's ups and downs, your life, your story, are beautiful and I can't wait to create images to show that!

From my point of view as a wife and busy mom to two beautiful and energetic kids, so I know firsthand how important it is to capture these times in your growing families lives before they slip away all too fast. My goal is to create lasting relationships with my clients and grow with them through all stages of their life, from their proposals & engagement session to their dream wedding here in Georgia or abroad, followed by them starting their family and watching it grow with love through my lens.


My family and I are huge animal lovers! I have two amazing children my oldest, Jacob, will be 20 this year and my youngest, Michaela will turn 9 in November. . We have two pugs with whimsical nerdtastic names Sir Charles 'Charlie' Xavier Pugsington the III, Duke of Kibble, Dame 'River' Song Pugsington, Professor of Cuteness and Dutchess of the Curly-tails and our sassy cat Sophie Marie aka Sophie Badophie. We love movies and into anything geeky like Doctor Who, Marvel, anything to do with magic or mystical creatures, anime and just spending time as a family! We travel as often as we can and are marking off locations on our bucket list such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Big Sur, Sequoia National Park, New York, Las Vegas and other great locations across the country.  

When I am not behind the camera, planning a wedding or engagement session, or editing one of these gorgeous wedding albums, you can find me hanging out with the family playing cards, vacationing at the beach or in the mountains, hiking one of the many beautiful trails around Atlanta, or all cozy on the couch, wrapped in my big fluffy blanket watching a movie with Charlie curled up in my lap or sitting at my desk working on my next YouTube tutorial for photographers! Let's Chat! 

Love, light & boundless blessings, 

I love surprising my couples with same day reveals during their reception! 

I'm always there to help in whatever way I can, even if that mean mending your gown.

Tamela knew exactly what we were going for, and what we wanted out of our wedding pictures, and she was super flexible when it came to adjusting for weather. Most importantly- our photos are stunning!

Dahlias, daisies, heck, even dandelions. I'm a big believer that a few fresh florals in a jar and you can transform any room or occasion into something elegant (or even magical if it happens to be peony season!)

We believe that life's biggest and smallest moments are worth celebrating. You'll always find a bottle of champagne in our fridge in the event that the night deserves a bit of celebrating!

New isn't always better. We're big fans of spending the afternoon sifting through antique shops and secondhand stores for timeless pieces with secret stories. Our favorite find? This cool vintage camera!

If you're looking for images that are beautiful and emotive and a photo experience that is as easy as checking into a five star hotel, you're in the right place.

I value taking the time to get to know each couple and family that I work with so that I can best tell the story of their lives. Get ready to fill your walls with images that make you smile for years to come.

It started

with a kiss

The first time my dad saw my mom, he was so sure she was the one, he walked straight up to her and gave her a kiss. Was it forward? Yes. But it worked. It's been 32 years and they're still going strong. 

My parents have always been a beautiful example of love, intimacy and marriage. And when my mom got sick, it wasn't home decor or baked goods that my dad brought to the hospital, it was photos. Photos remind us of the strength, courage and hope that reside in all of us the way few other things can.
