Teresa was SO MUCH MORE than a photographer for me — she became one of my closest confidants throughout the process of wedding planning. She was my right arm woman when I felt stressed on the day of our wedding. She has the hugest heart and the most amazing ability to hold space for your nerves and emotions and reminds you all the while how special and beautiful and important this day really is! She became family in the process — to say she was “more than a photographer” is a huge understatement. Shane and I both agree that the day of our engagement session was one of THE BEST days of our lives — we fell in love all over again during that session. Teresa asked us questions about our love, and stories about one another that we had to whisper in one another’s ears while she snapped real live footage of those really special moments. Our engagement session was literally one of our fav dates…. we had a picnic in nature with food and wine and shane played me the guitar and we laughed and cried and teresa was there… baring witness to it all, capturing it – moment by moment. The process was unlike anything I had expected — Teresa delivered something far beyond what we had thought a photographer would do
I was so nervous going into this because I wasn’t sure that a stranger could capture our story. My worries were put to rest after spending an hour & a half with Teresa the first time we met. It immediately felt like I had known her for years, like we were kindred spirits! Teresa was warm & open with us & asked deep questions about our relationship. On the day of the wedding, she came to my parents place & fit beautifully into the organized chaos. She was so kind & so calm; her presence gave me peace. She was never controlling, never rude or negative & she made herself at home. It didn’t feel like we had a stranger in the house, it really felt like my friend was there, taking pictures of all the meaningful moments that I didn’t even realize I would want to have images of forever. Teresa has this beautiful way of making a man who hates taking photos, forget about the camera & just focus on the love he has for his bride. She asked as questions, like, “tell Louise about the first time you kissed her”. The questions prompted us to take an emotional journey into our relationship. It produced spontaneous kisses & meaningful looks that Teresa perfectly captured. She didn’t only photograph our story, she transformed us into a fairytale & I FELT that fairytale. It was tough to say goodbye to Teresa! It didn’t feel like we were greeting a hired photographer, it felt like we were sending off a guest. Jake & I feel as if we’ve added a dear friend to our lives. Honestly, God had His hand in everything in our lives & we couldn’t be more grateful. We are so blessed to know her & so privileged to have her talent in the photographs that we will share & cherish for the rest of our lives.
We had Teresa take our engagement and wedding photos, and I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out! One thing I was looking for in a photographer was someone who captured moment’s not just poses and Teresa did just that. She captured my husband and I being ourselves as if she wasn’t there at all, making us feel 100% comfortable. Looking back at our photos I feel as though I’m reliving those moments again because of the authenticity they portray. We laughed, cried, ran through fields, walked on rocks, made silly faces and she followed willingly. I truly believe her patience, professionalism and passion are what make her a talented photographer. I truly look forward to having her capture more stages of the life we’re building
When Teresa did our engagement session, it turned out to be much more meaningful then just having our picture taken. She had my fiancé and I reflect back on our past, remembering and telling each other why we fell in love in the first place. I shed a few tears, and so did she. Her love for love is so very evident in her work. We are definitely looking forward to her shooting our 2016 wedding!
Teresa has officially become our lifetime photographer! we have trusted her with all our biggest moments & are excited for the rest. during our three sessions she had us laughing & crying, then laughing & crying some more. also, it’s so hard to describe her & her work in only a couple sentences. you rock Tres & we really truly couldn’t be happier.
Teresa is so incredible to work with. I remember being so nervous for our engagement session but as soon as Teresa greeted me with a hug I knew it would be a great afternoon. She was constantly getting my husband and I to have meaningful conversations and real moments within the photographs. When we saw the pictures we were blown away by her talent and the way she captured our story.
My husband and I went into this session knowing it would be amazing. It felt like we were going on a date, a date where we brought back 3 years of memory in one session. It was blissful. Teresa asked us questions about our relationship & as we took the time to look back on our relationship, she snapped away! We are so satisfied with our pictures. Keep doing what you’re doing & being who you are, Teresa!
