Hi, I'm Tessa! Since I went full-time in 2018, I've photographed or filmed over 100 couples in the Southeast and beyond. What I love most about my job is getting to know the couples I work with and becoming their friend through the process.
My style is timeless, warm, and dreamy. I am just as comfortable gathering people for family photos as I am helping you feel beautiful at sunset. Choosing a wedding photographer is a huge decision, and I take it just as seriously as you do. I invest in your love story from the beginning so we can capture wedding images that are an authentic reflection of you.
Uncomfortable in front of the camera? Us too. We are all-stars at making you feel like royalty on your wedding day. When you are comfortable and enjoy the process, we can create magical, unique wedding images. So we use playful, creative prompts, to get you and your partner moving and laughing for real. None of that "now everyone laugh" stuff.
Wedding photography is a chance to revisit and share some of your most special memories far into the future. My goal is to not only help you have an incredible wedding experience, but to bring those emotions flooding back for every anniversary to come.
My editing style has rich colors with a moody/dreamy quality. I love playing with light/shadow, texture, and negative space to bring out the couple's style. My work style is prompt-based and focuses on emotion rather than perfectionism. I tend to include the typical "album" shots as well as more modern and experimental poses.
My perfect day would be an autumn one where I'm in my reading room with a cup of hot tea, a knit blanket, and a good book. A perfect wedding day with my couples is when we are having fun, bouncing creativity back and forth, and running on time!
"Tessa is amazing! She made us laugh and kept it fun for two awkward people who never get their pictures taken. She was super helpful in the wedding planning process, offering suggestions and tips along the way...much much more than just photography. "
"If you want genuine, laughter-filled, perfectly captured moments of joy, you NEED to have Tessa take your pictures. She is kind, sweet, and will make you feel like a million bucks. She captured the best day of my life and put my husband and I's personalities into every single detail of each photo. Best wedding decision I made (besides marrying the love of my life!)."
