I believe in joy, marriage, and authentic photos.

I forge real relationships with my clients and the result is magic:
authentic images filled with emotion. 
Images that will stand the test of time and strengthen your marriage.

My style is timeless and joyful; light-filled and vivid.

I shoot weddings all over the Southeast, and I love to travel and do it often.  My job is amazing.

LOVE NOTES

It's truly hard for me to put into words what an amazing job Tessa did! Tessa was the second best decision I made for my wedding... right behind saying yes to the man of my dreams.:)
Tessa is top notch in every way- communication is excellent and her attitude is exactly what you need on your wedding day (laid back but gets things done!). Tessa was my sounding board, my photojournalist, my ROCK the week leading up to the wedding... and now she is my friend. I have stunning shots that I will cherish for the rest of my life and it's all thanks to this amazing photographer. I can promise you will NOT be disappointed.

Tessa was amazing to work with! She captured our wedding perfectly and I feel so lucky to have had her as a part of our wedding day. We have so many stunning photos! One of the best things about Tessa, to me, is that she largely blended into the background and caught tons of special moments without having us constantly stopping to pose. It made it so much easier to really enjoy and soak up the day. I absolutely loved working with her, love our photos, and highly recommend her!
