LOVE, tamela

I am so excited that you are interested in choosing my team to document your wedding! We believe in real moments and chasing sunsets. In the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together. We believe in images that are itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for years to come. 

I began capturing images on film at the age of 12 when I discovered my grandfather's old Kodak in the attic. The limited amount of images on a roll of film forced me to think of composition, lighting, and really observe the beauty in the world, and the people around me. Whenever I pick up my camera now, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them.

"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!"   - Sarah

After photographing more than a hundred weddings over the past few years, we’ve found that we’re not the perfect fit for every couple. That’s why this process begins with a conversation. We want to hear everything—how you met, funny first date stories, and how y’all got engaged.

We’ll get to know one another, talk about the details of your day, answer any questions you might have about working with us and figure out if we’re the best fit for each other.

LET's CONNECT

We're here as a resource beyond photography—whether you're looking for engagement session outfit recommendations, timeline advice, or vendor referrals.

Even if you're working with a wedding planner or you're planning a simple wedding, there are likely still a lot of moving pieces left leading up to your big day. We've photographed more than 150 weddings in the past few years and we're happy to share everything we've learned along the way! 

Wedding Advice

We’re big fans of engagement sessions for a few reasons. Not only do they allow you to get comfortable in front of the camera, they also give you the opportunity to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you. 

Engagement sessions can take place anywhere from immediately following a proposal to just a few days before the wedding. We’ve found that there isn’t a “good” or “bad” time to take your photos. We normally plan sessions based on a particular “look” a couple has in mind, spring flowers for example, or based on schedules. 

Engagement Session

We check-in about two months before the wedding to start chatting about timeline specifics, special details, family formal shot lists, special traditions and anything else we should know about your big day. 

While we normally don't send this questionnaire until closer to the wedding, please don't hesitate to let us know if you have questions during the planning process!

Wedding Day Prep

It's finally here! The day the two of you say "I Do" and dance the night away surrounded by your family and friends. 

Just know we're excited to celebrate and capture your wedding day. It's going to be awesome.

The Big Day

You can expect your photos to be delivered via an online gallery within about four to six weeks from your wedding. At that time, we'll also send over details about preserving your images through prints and albums. 

We hope the relationship doesn't end after we deliver your photographs. We want to hear about the adventures of married life. And if you decide to have kids, we'd love to document your growing family.

MORE DETAILS

One of the best ways to make your wedding memories last is by ordering an album. These high quality professionally designed albums come in a variety of linen & leather colors. These aren’t the same albums your parents wedding photos came in. They’re modern, lay perfectly flat and look incredible on coffee tables.

All albums must be prepaid before design begins. Albums typically take between 4 to 6 weeks to complete and include three rounds of revision. Albums may be ordered anytime before or after the wedding day.

ALBUMS

All of our sessions include a complimentary engagement session. It takes time for most couples to warm up to being photographed and understand how we pose. Timelines can be pretty tight on weddings days and 30 minutes may be all we have for portraits - which is why we’ve found that wedding day portraits turn out so much better when couples do engagement sessions ahead of time.

Sessions also allow you to showcase your personalities in a more casual setting that is significant to the two of you (and even include pets!) While they’re great for save-the-dates, we’ve taken engagement photos anywhere from 18 months in advance to a few days before the wedding.
