capturing authentic moments
making joyful memories
while you are
"I'M HOLDING BACK THE TEARS AS I LOOK AT MY REFLECTION IN THE MIRROR. I CAN ALMOST HEAR MY MOM'S VOICE SAYING, 'WOW! YOU SHINE BRIGHTER THAN THE MOON HONEY'. SHE WOULD TELL ME THIS EVERY TIME I'D PLAY DRESS UP AS A CHILD AND PUT ON MY FAVORITE PRINCESS DRESS AND HER OVERSIZED HIGH HEELS. IT'S BEEN 7 YEARS AND I MISS HER EVERYDAY. I LOOK AT THE CLOCK AND START TO FEEL NERVOUS, 30 MINUTES UNTIL I WALK DOWN THE AISLE TO MARRY MY SOUL MATE. AND THEN, I REMEMBER...DAD! I HAVE TO DO THE FIRST LOOK WITH MY DAD! AS MY AUNT GOES TO GET MY DAD I HIDE AROUND THE CORNER SO HE WON'T SEE ME. I HEAR HIS FOOTSTEPS AND...SNIFFLING? HAS DAD BEEN CRYING ALREADY? I ROUND THE CORNER, MY DRESS SWISHING, TO GREET MY DAD AND HE BURSTS INTO TEARS AND PULLS ME IN TIGHT. AFTER A MINUTE HE SUDDENLY PULLS BACK, 'I ALMOST FORGOT. THIS IS FOR YOU...FROM...YOUR MOTHER AND I.' HE SAYS AS HIS VOICE TRAILS OFF QUIETLY AT THE END. FROM HIS JACKET POCKET HE TAKES OUT A THIN GOLD BRACELET. AS HE PLACES IT AROUND MY WRIST I READ THE INSCRIPTION ON THE TOP ALOUD "YOU SHINE BRIGHTER THAN THE MOON" MY VISION GETS BLURRY AS I TRY TO BLINK BACK MY TEARS AND THEN I HEAR THE SOFT "CLICK CLICK OF A CAMERA!" I ALMOST FORGOT WHERE WE WERE FOR A MOMENT! I WILL CHERISH THESE PHOTOS WITH MY DAD FOREVER!"

Your might not remember, or be there for every moment on your wedding day, so I make it my priority to serve you well in capturing both traditional portraits AND beautiful, candid moments that tell your story.

"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!!!!"
