Kiddos grow up SO fast, and there are always so many new milestones to capture. I'm here to make sure your family story is told beautifully with lifestyle photos full of giggles, adventures, and lots of love. From the first day your little bundle of joy joins you at the hospital, I'll be here to capture all the big moments (and the little ones) because life goes way too quickly and I don't want you to miss out on anything.
Whether it's engagements, an anniversary, maternity session, or just a fun shoot to get some new photos together, your session should reflect YOU. I'm all about making new memories, capturing all the love and joy you feel for each other, and telling your love story with warm, nostalgic photos. We can literally do WHATEVER you want for your session so let's get brainstorming and have some fun!
An understanding of the uniqueness and individuality of your personal connection
An emphasis on the honest beauty of non-traditional weddings, sessions and moments
A deep love for true connections with you and building trust
The importance of intentional planning to bring out the most authentic emotions
A nostalgia that captures moments and memories over posed photos
A deeply-rooted love for mother nature and her ability to enhance the beauty of any moment
These are your moments and memories to create, this is all about you
I've been a photographer for 8 years, and started photographing weddings 5 years ago. It has been my passion for as long as I can remember and have had so many different experiences photographing all sorts of sessions and weddings.
I'm currently based out of Salt Lake City, UT but travel all the time! I would love to photograph your wedding or session anywhere in the world. I was raised in Tacoma, Washington so I'm frequently in the PNW and offer discounted travel rates to Washington. Please don't hesitate to reach out no matter where you're located or getting married!
For any type of session (couples, families, anniversaries, etc.) my turnaround time is 2 weeks. For weddings, it is 4 weeks which is much quicker than the industry average. I pride myself in quick turnaround times while also providing high quality, beautiful images. If you add film photos to your session or wedding, turnaround time may be extended for those by a week or two due to developing time. You will get your film photos sent to you separately though, so that your digital images still come in my typical timeframe.
No I don't provide raw or unedited images. Truly, editing is where so much of the magic happens and without it, the photos aren't totally finished. I promise to go through every single image we take and make sure to select ALL the good ones. I always end up providing WAY more images than I list as the number pricing guides. I'm never going to keep a good photo from you <3
I require a 35% retainer to secure your spot on my calendar, and the remaining 65% is due 1 month in advance for weddings, and 1 week in advance for shoots. I'm also happy to work with you and your schedule if you'd like to split these up into 3 payments!
I don't. I currently offer photography, film photography, wedding invitations, and intentional planning guidance (which is a lot and keeps me busy)! If you'd like recommendations on videographers though, I'm happy to help!
I follow industry standards. If you've already put a deposit down on your date then have to move or cancel it, the deposit is legally non-refundable and a new deposit will have to be made to secure a new date.
My current primary camera body is a Canon EOS 5D Mark IV. I also always have a Canon EOS 6D as my backup. I shoot film on a Canon EOS 3 with Porta 400 film. I alternate between 35mm, 50mm, and 85mm lenses. I also always have an external flash to use in dark situations and spare batteries, memory cards, etc. Don't worry, you'll be in good hands.
As a PNW native, I'm friends with the rain and always encourage embracing whatever weather comes our way. It makes your photos completely unique and beautiful. Storm clouds are kind of amazing in photos. It it's harsh enough that it would make us miserable (or ruin my gear) then we totally will reschedule!
No, my pricing is firm.
I don’t alter the way you look in post-processing other than skin blemishes or anything temporary that would not normally be there (bruise, scrape, acne etc. unless you’d like me to keep it). If you’re self conscious about something, please let me know and I’ll be sure to be extra aware of that while I’m posing and guiding you.

"Tami is the very best! She not only captures but always exceeds my vision for photos and makes me feel so comfortable in front of a camera. Her talent is unmatched — she has been our go-to for years and I’m always trying to find reasons to book with her!"
"Where do I even start? Tami is GREAT! She delivered even higher than our best expectations. There are so many little things she does to set her apart from other photographers. And she's FAST. She gave us a bunch of Polaroids right after our shoot, which was like instant gratification and made us so excited to get our edited pics back. Not to mention her editing is flawless. Book her now before everyone discovers her - because I'm already telling all my friends about her!"
"Hi! I went through the gallery AND OMG YOU ARE A REAL LIFE WIZARD I AM AMAZED! They're our fav pics we've ever had and we're updating all our pic frames today. Thanks for your hard work and ART!!! I hope your books fill up and your portfolio inspires people!"
"I'm so obsessed!!! You're amazing!! These will seriously be so special to have while we have to be away from each other. Thanks for fitting us in last minute and helping make this all come together. I couldn't be more excited!"
