Unscriped moments that become lifelong memories.

I believe the most important photographs I take are those fleeting, candid, unseen moments. Moments that tell a story of the relationship and memories shared between the people you hold most dear.

A warm embrace in a moment of stillness, a gentle kiss to her hand,
the subtle glance of love, or a whisper of "I can't believe we're married!"

"Tessa has a special way of making you feel very comfortable in front of the camera while making it fun! I can honestly say she was the hardest worker at our wedding and the pictures are PROOF. Tessa is worth every penny and I would recommend her to ANYONE!"

-Lindsay, Bride

"We reviewed a lot of photographers for my daughter's wedding. When I found Tessa Marie's website, I knew that we were onto something special. Tessa's photographs are a work of art. She not only documents the event but tells a story that will last forever. Not only is Tessa an amazing photographer, she is an outstanding person--kind, non-judgemental, quiet and a delight to be around. We have 2 other daughters and when they decide to get married, Tessa will be my first call!"

-Mother of the Bride

From the first phone call forward

you’ll see how much I care.

Like, really care about YOU
. I care about your wedding day but more importantly about your families, friends and the stories you’ll have preserved through the images I create. 

It’s a delicate balance of keeping things running on time yet allowing space and time for these moments to unfold naturally. As a bride, I discovered how important the experience you have with your photographer is to how you’ll feel about your wedding pictures and remember your wedding day.

I build relationships. Real relationships. (I stay in touch with many of my previous brides and have even gone on vacation with couples whose weddings I’ve shot!) I use first names rather than dates. Here you are family. More than just a number you’re a couple with a unique story and it’s my goal for your pictures to be a reflection of that.

You’re in the right place if…

• The photos you’ve seen stir emotions inside of you.
• You envision sharing your wedding story with your children one day.
• You want to experience the emotions you felt on your wedding day each time you turn the pages in your wedding album. 

It’s more than being in “love” with love.
More than creating beautiful photographs.

To me… being a photographer means preserving stories, emotion filled moments and memories to be shared & experienced for decades to come. You’ll search far and wide to find a photographer that will work harder, strive for greater, have a genuine care and love for you and your families, have more intention and purpose or make you feel more at ease, and capture more candid or genuine moments that tell of your love and your relationships.
