About Me

Hi, I’m Tammy.

For outdoor-loving couples who value real moments.

I am a San Antonio-based wedding photographer and I am absolutely in love with capturing the kinds of weddings where there are more hugs than handshakes, the dance floor rumbles all night long, and chairs are pretty much rendered useless after dinner. Whiskey bottles are passed around, most of the wedding party has been best-best friends since kindergarten, Grams is likely to lose her shoes and your partner is much more emotional than you are. These kinds of weddings are my jam!

Since 2010, I have excelled in helping each of my couples plan for one of the very best days of their lives! I’d love to share my very personalized wedding experience, my super-human organizational abilities, and my U. S. Army combat skills (when needed) with you too.

I want your wedding day to be as perfect as you do! I am all in with my whole heart!

Would you like to meetup?

LET'S CHAT

Everything I do is for you.

This is me tubing on the Rio Colorado in Costa Rica. (By the way, best river tubing EVER!) If I wasn’t a wedding photographer, I could totally be an outdoor brand influencer.

When I’m not enjoying the great outdoors, I am 100% committed to making sure you have the best wedding images possible. Everything I do in relation to my business is for you!

Every international print competition, every exhausting print critique, every in-person master class, every mentoring session, every professional conference, every vendor meetup, every networking opportunity, every blog post written, every ounce of photography and business education consumed, every long-distance bike ride, every on-my-toes push-up… is FOR YOU.

More…

Over the years, I have learned so much shooting weddings, I literally wrote a book about it (and currently writing a second). It’s helped my couples and can help you too. You can find it here.

However, my proudest moments in life are raising two daughters, living in the same area as my ancestors since 1909, serving in the U. S. Army, and mentally surviving extremely tragic events (losing my sister and my mom by age 21). Honestly, the unconscionable loss my family suffered is what fuels my photography appetite and plays a major role in the grind and effort devoted to my couples.

When I’m not behind my camera, you can find me hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, enjoying water sports, listening to music (Elvis and Prince), hunting for arrowheads, reading audiobooks, occasionally eating a few glazed donuts (my only weakness to sweets) and then re-starting my keto diet about every 10 days.

The most important things in life are for me to see my two daughters happy and to create a family history my grandparents and grandson would be proud of.


Step #3: I've heard enough. I'm ready to meet.

LET'S CONNECT

The couples who choose to have me shoot their BIG day are usually dog (and cat) owners/rescuers (sometimes chickens and bunnies too). They usually spend an incredible amount of time outdoors whether it be camping, hiking, backpacking, trail running, doing Crossfit, hunting, or just spending most evenings on the patio of a restaurant (or their own homes) eating dinner and drinking adult beverages with their furbabies.

They love watching sunsets, listening to music, taking road trips, having deep and meaningful conversations, and are inclined to drive Jeeps (or some other all-terrain vehicle). More often than not, they have professional or semi-professional 9-to-5s.

I am the wedding photographer for the outdoor adventurers, the romantics, the laid back, the snugglers, and those who wish to capture all their realness.

If this sounds like you, let’s chat, okay?
