“My husband and I recently did our first ever couple's photoshoot with Tess and are absolutely in love with the photos she captured.
Right from the beginning, she knew what I was after and beautifully captured the essence of our relationship. She was very communicative during the process and overall, we loved the experience. Fast turnaround, too. We'll definitely be returning customers. Highly recommend!” - Alex Emerson
