I would encourage you not to look at this as another cost, but as an investment.
It's important you have someone you fully trust with your memories and can see as another friend at your wedding.
My goals when working with you are to make your day as stress free as possible, give you an amazing experience AND deliver photos that make you feel incredible. Don't settle. You deserve all three.
My goal with an engagement shoot is to capture you guys in a way that reflects what your relationship is like. By getting to work with you for your engagement shoot, I'm able to see how you interact and learn the best way possible to shoot and work with you for your wedding.
I'll help with location scouting, outfit styling, and creative direction.
BEYOND YOUR WEDDING DAY/ Your wedding is so much more than just the day you get married and it's just as important to preserve those memories. Whether it's your rehearsal dinner, solo beach portraits the day before you say your vows in Hawaii, couples photos the day after your destination wedding in Santorini, or a fun pool bridal session over your wedding weekend, I'd love to be there to capture it all.
As I've been working with couples the one thing I hear over and over again is that they want their memories preserved exactly how they unfolded. While videographers are amazing, there is something so special about raw, unedited moments that only small little clips can provide.
With this add on, I'll have someone on my team artistically trained to take your iphone and document all the moments, both big and small. You'll walk away the night of your wedding with everything right on your phone & it will all be in vertical format so it's perfect for posting, sharing, and social media.

"Hands down the best photographer"
"My husband and I are usually terrified in front of camera and don’t know what to do to ourselves, but with Tess, it became a hang out day with a best friend. Not to mention, she came out with the most magical pictures. The pictures not only capture the beautiful places and looks, but when you look through pictures, they tell exactly how our personalities are, and how our relationship is."
Olivia + Brandon
"I don't often write reviews unless I'm blown away by something but Tess is that good!"
Tess is so amazing! Her photos are so beautiful & that's why I booked her, but here service was above and beyond! We had no experience in front of the camera and she made us feel so comfortable and we had SO much fun!
Adrianna + Matt
"Tess was more than a vendor for us."
"Just book her already! Tess went ABOVE AND BEYOND the role of photographer! She made taking pictures a comfortable and natural experience for two people that are definitely not used to being in front of the camera. Here final photos are everything I could have dreamed of. I would recommend Tess to anyone, and already have!"
Either fill out my contact form, or have your planner reach out to me and I'll get back to you within 24 hours. If you want to set up a time to call or Facetime, I'd love to chat with you!
Expect that I'll be working right alongside your planner and am only an email away. I've created resource guides, recommended vendor lists, and other little steps along the way to ensure you'll be taken care of and are my top priority.
This is an awesome opportunity for me to get to know you guys! I'll help you come up with ideas, locations, and send you my outfit guide so we can nail your vision.
Two months out from your wedding we'll set up a Facetime or call. I'll help you build out a wedding day timeline or connect with your wedding planner to get everything set and ready. This will be a time for us to catch up and make sure we're completely on the same page going into the wedding day.
I'll show up early, introduce myself to everyone, and start looking around the venue to get a lay of the land. I'll tell your story as honestly as possible while guiding you through photos. I'll prioritize letting you be with you family and friends & treat everyone with as much love and care as humanly possible!
Expect sneak peaks within 3-4 days of your wedding and your ENTIRE gallery in three weeks. Giving you your wedding photos back quickly is a huge part of the experience I offer & something that most don't do. Once you have your gallery there will be albums available for purchase.
