Intimate Wedding & Elopement Photographer

California, Arizona & Beyond

Experience

What's it like working with me?

Your wedding is about you! It’s about the people you want to be there, and the moments you can't live without. Keep the traditional wedding moments you want and toss what you don’t! Make the day truly yours.

Whether I'm photographing your adventurous engagement session or an intimate elopement, I'll be there to document your moments in a way that is genuine to you. If you're spending the day just the two of you or are surrounded by your closest loved ones, I'll preserve the emotions and feeling of your moments to be experienced every time you look back at your photos. You'll look back at them for years to come and relive the day.

When a big wedding just doesn't feel like the right fit, go with your gut and create something all your own.

Your Southern California based photographer and I am crazy about intimate weddings and elopements. I’m here to help you plan your day, be your guide, and take STUNNING photos of your moments as they truly are. 

If you're eloping just the two of you, or if you've got a few friends and family joining you on your adventure, I'm here to help you bring your vision to life. 

I'm Tess!

Hey

About the Photographer

It's Me!

Finding Tess was like a dream come true. I had spent forever looking for a wedding photographer and was getting a little discouraged until I found Tess. Her pictures were incredible and after a short phone call, I was totally set on her. I was so excited to have found someone whose work I absolutely loved, but also whose personality made sharing our special day with her so fun! Tess was SO helpful and played such an important role in our big day. She was up for anything and made us feel so comfortable, as if we’d been friends for years. I knew the pictures would be great because she is so talented, but they far exceeded my highest expectations. All my friends and family have been blown away by the images. I cannot thank or praise Tess enough for capturing such precious memories so exceptionally.

Tess is awesome! Everything was so easy with her - from meeting her for the first time to receiving our final wedding photo gallery. Tess is professional, prompt, and super down-to-earth. Her photos are brilliant! They capture real moments and true emotion. Through this process, my husband and I feel like we found more than just a photographer in Tess, we also feel like we found a friend. Thank you!

Tess is the BEST! She exceeded our expectations and is unbelievable to work with and so kind! She truly cares about who she works with, made us feel like we were lifelong friends, and listens to your vision. Not only does she capture amazing photos but the quality is timeless. Our love and personalities were expressed perfectly in our engagement shoot. We live on the east coast but we tell everyone about how amazing she is. We cannot wait to have her capture our wedding day. Do not hesitate to book Tess for anything that needs to be photographed - she is your girl!

Working with Tess was a breeze to say the least. From coordinating a day, time, location and even the photoshoot itself, everything was done with such professionalism. I knew the photographs were going to have great lighting and awesome angles, but the way she made us look and feel so comfortable in front of the camera we owe to her! The photographs turned out better than we could have ever imagined! 

Ashley & Eric

Tess is incredible!! She did an anniversary shoot for me and my husband in Joshua Tree and we couldn't be happier with the result. She knows exactly how to make you comfortable and have fun with your photos. We have worked with many photographers and Tess is top notch!
