meet your photographer, tamela.

hello lovely

I am Tamela. A Dr. Pepper enthusiast, and lover of all animals! I'm known for changing my hair color more times than I can count, I'm an avid bowling enthusiast, a delivery from Amazon almost every day (it's so convenient!), and I have a small obsession with getting the newest apple and Canon products. 

My husband Tim, my adorable children, two pugs, and God, are some of the most important things to me. I don’t know what I’d do without them!

I consider myself to be so lucky because I get to photograph your special moments full-time! After having my son, Jacob, my love for photography blossomed even more! Weddings have always been one of my favorite things to photograph. I married my soulmate in 2016 and getting to be a part of others wedding days brings me so much joy and happiness.

Our style can be summed up as

Timeless, Classic, and Romantic, with a timeless & bright feel with pops of color. 

our story

our photography style in 5 words

our clients are saying...

I have had a camera in my hand since I found my grandfather's old Kodak when I was twelve...

I wanted to document everything from the blooming peach trees to the new kittens we found in our barn.

What started as a hobby, quickly turned into a business. The idea of creating memories that will last for a lifetime brought me so much joy, and I knew photography was something I needed to do as a career. Weddings are what I fell in love with the most. I still can't believe I get to document people's love stories for a living.

Joyful. Timeless. Classic. Pure. Romantic.

"If someone is going to be photographing the best day of your life for 8+ hours, you want that person to be Tamela."

we believe

God should be the center of marriage, and marriage is more important than the wedding. The wedding is just the beginning of a beautiful life together. 

How we got our business name?
After months of prayer we realized that when it comes to life and marriage that God's love is an everlasting love and when He anoints the marriage of two souls, that is also meant to be an everlasting love. We decided on using the word Forever instead of everlasting and Forever Love Photography was born.
