I’m more than just your photographer, I’m there to celebrate with you every step of the way!


As one of my brides put it: “Get yourself a vendor who’s also your #1 Hype girl!”. I love being part of the process. Need advice about wedding décor and florals or just want to brag about that amazing dress that you said yes too? I want to be there with you celebrating all of the moments that you said yes.  

Stunning photos that are also very YOU!

I take the time to really get to know you two as a couple, so that I can capture your day in a way that’s truly genuine. It’s important that you’re comfortable with me as your photographer and the easiest way to do that is to learn more about you two. I’m not that photographer that’ll show up to your big day and pose you in a generic way just to get a few good shots. I want to know how you two love on each other, what makes you giddy and what brings the biggest smile to your face. What are your love languages, are either of you ticklish, who’s funnier? These little things are what really make a moment into a photo that you remember. You’ll really be able to feel the love when you go through your photos for years to come.  


Custom Pricing

Wedding photography isn’t one-size-fits-all. I want to create a custom wedding package that checks all of your boxes, to give you the best experience possible. Contact me and we can discuss what you need that’ll fit into your budget. Money isn’t always fun to talk about, but I’m understanding and easy to communicate with.  


Quick Communication

It’s always easy to get ahold of me. I don’t believe in set office hours and I’m always quick to respond to emails. You’ll usually get a response from me within the hour (unless I’m sleeping), but I definitely won’t leave you hanging.  


Your family and friends are important to me

Wedding days go by so fast, it can be hard to spend time with each guest that shows up to celebrate with you. The candid shot of your guests laughing during the speeches, or crying during the mother-son dance are moments that you will want to look back at. These are some of my favorite photos to capture, and they are the photos that many are delighted to see if they missed them on their wedding day.

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!

Marianne & Andrew

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!
