I’m a Central Texas-based photographer who specializes in photographing weddings, families, seniors, and people in love.

Hey there, I'm Tess!

I document the most powerful element in all of our lives: Connection. I’m a documentarian that photographs both the milestones and the beauty in the ordinary of our lives. This business is about preserving memories and helping people feel at home in themselves. 

We are the perfect match if.... 

You're looking for
documentarian-style photography. 

You value candid photos that tell a story. Photo stories, not just photo sessions. An experience that captures an authentic memory, not a manufactured moment.  

You want a photographer who
will make you feel comfortable and beautiful in front of the camera.  

The number one compliment I receive from every person I photograph is that I make them feel at ease during our time together. I love showing people that photography is accessible to everyone.

You enjoy a luxury customer experience that makes you feel known. 


From personalized gifts to speedy email responses, I strive to cultivate a real relationship with each person I work with — which in turn, makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera and like you've just met your newest friend. 

Weddings & Elopements

Families & Couples

UT Austin Seniors

Whether you’re designing an enormous extravaganza or planning an intimate elopement with your closest loved ones, your wedding is a BIG freakin’ deal.

Whether you’re celebrating a major milestone like a new baby or home, or you just want to capture what life was like this year, your memories matter.

Posing in front of the Blue Door, popping champagne in the Littlefield Fountain, and donning your cap and gown in the Main Mall are all rites of passage that should be professionally photographed. 

A Day in the Life Session 

Whether you're recently married or have been a family for years, a Day in the Life photo session is the perfect way to freeze this time of your life in time. Allow me to be a fly on the wall for an day of your life. 

I offer photo sessions for every stage of life!
