My editing style is timeless, warm, and vibrant. I focus on bringing out the colors that you carefully chose rather than editing to create a certain aesthetic or follow a trend. No wedding gallery looks quite the same because no wedding is the same.
I value getting to know my couples throughout the wedding planning process and providing expert advice every step of the way. Plus, I offer a superior customer experience, with heirloom quality memory boxes and fine art prints prints included in every package.
I have a documentarian approach to weddings. While I will create a timeline for your weddings, I love to leave space to capture your wedding day as it unfolds. I don't manufacture fake photo ops because I know the photos you'll treasure most are the authentic moments.
Hear From The Newly Weds
“To describe Tess in three words: talented, friendly, and genuine."
Tess was everything we could’ve asked for in a wedding photographer and more! Our wedding planning got complicated with covid and she was there for us when we had to keep rescheduling. When we inevitably had to move our ceremony to Florida, I thought we’d have to cancel—but she offered to come with us, and I’m so glad she did! I’m impressed with the shots we’ve gotten back so far and can’t wait to see the rest. On top of that, she’s just a genuine pleasure to be around. Next time we need photos, we’ll definitely be reaching back out to Tess!

“Tess is a dream to work with."
"She is communicative, timely, kind, and SO FUN to work with. Her work speaks for itself, but from a vendor-to-vendor perspective, she is truly fantastic. I always enjoy working with her leading up to the weddings, and on site she helps keep things moving in a fun, easy way. If I could leave 6 stars instead of 5, I would! Book TLC - you won't be disappointed in the process or the final product!"
Molly Mulally, Wedding Planner at Barr Mansion
“Tessa has been such a joy to work with!"
"Everything she does, from her online content, to her strategy on wedding day, is geared towards making the couple's day the best it could possibly be. She is patient, kind, and so helpful. I love seeing her work with couples, making them comfortable, and providing insight wherever possible. She is such a beautiful soul and I am glad we were connected. I plan to work with her again and again!"

Have Some Questions? I've Gotchu!
YES. Love is love is love. :)
I require a 25% non-refundable deposit to reserve your wedding date.The rest must be paid one month before your wedding. I’ll send you a digital invoice that’s payable by card or wire transfer, and I’m flexible with payment plans.
If you’ve already paid for the wedding, then your 25% deposit is non- refundable. I will try my best to accommodate a new date, but if I’m already booked on that day, then your deposit is still non-refundable.
If I have to cancel on you, I will refund the full cost of your wedding and recommend you 3-5 photographers in my place.
Yep! Even out-of-state or internationally. I like to keep it simple. If you're wedding is in Texas but further than 50 miles from 78725, add $300 to your total. For weddings out of Texas, add $800 to your total.
After your wedding, I will text you a dozens of previews. If there are certain photos you want in the previews (like ones with certain family members), be sure to let me know. I will deliver the rest of your digital images within four weeks via a gallery-sharing site called Pixieset. I also mail you a memory box that includes a few prints and a USB with all your photos.
Nope. To honor the integrity of my work and of this industry, what you see in your final gallery is what you get. You didn’t just hire me to take your pictures—you hired me to curate the final product. By only sending you select images, I am saving you the time and energy it takes to sift through the hundreds—maybe thousands—of photos taken during the wedding. It’s important that we trust each other when we enter into a contract—so trust me when I tell you that the images I deliver will be the best of the best.
