Nothing orchestrated, or strictly posed, just a genuine portrayal of exactly what happened on your wedding day. I look for the in-between, capturing moments as they happen organically in front of me. With todays wedding we are forgetting some of the most important aspects of what the day is about, YOUR STORY.
Your wedding day isn't a time to worry about constantly smiling at the camera or feeling like you need to be doing something to get all the right shots. Having photographs which portray real emotions and tell complete stories, is what will keep your day alive year after year. Candid photography ensures fluidity to the day and a genuine narrative to your wedding day.
My job isn't just to capture every unique moment and provide you with a seamless experience. With every wedding I show up with a clean slate and approach the day with an open mind. My only intent for the day is to capture real life, so that together we can create a story that is uniquely yours.
It has always been important to me to be honest, upfront and real with people. The most important part of our journey together is to build trust. Once trust is present, magic unfolds in front of the camera. With trust you can let your guard down, be free, emotional, vulnerable, at ease. With that state of mind it's possible to capture not just the looks and details of your wedding day but exactly how you felt.
When it comes to your couple photos, I believe in natural organic movements rather than highly stylized and posed. I don't want to take away your time with the people who really matter, so if you are the kind of couple who would rather keep it short and sweet so you can get back to the party, that's always an option.
Candid photography means working with the elements, capturing the atmosphere, soul, life, love, and energy of the day. Your wedding story deserves to be told in a way that’s real and unguarded. Let your wedding photography define you, not tell a fake definition of what played out. I want to capture the connection between you and your loved ones, and tell your story in its truest form.
Within those candid moments you'll be able to relive your wedding day 10, 20 and 30 years from now. I believe deep down you want more then just a pretty picture to look back on. You want something that creates the entire build up of the day all over again. You want the butterflies back in your stomach that make you feel like you are back in your dress again.

We had the best experience working with Teresa! She went above and beyond what most photographers would do. We were originally drawn to her more artistic photos, but Teresa does it all and is wonderful at capturing the moment and energy as well as making sure she gets all the more traditional wedding photos one would want as well (family pics, etc). She also got everything back to us super quickly and we are so happy with the results. We'd highly recommend her for any of your photo needs and events. THANK YOU, TERESA!
Teresa's style and technique are unmatched with anyone I've ever worked with. No doubt due to her creative soul and extensive schooling in the arts and photography. Her ability to structure shots with depth and texture, while capturing the emotion of a moment in a way you can feel physically from the photograph, are just the start of why I wanted to work with her. The shots I had her take turned out _exactly_ as I'd hoped. Her intuition for what I was looking for matched my own exactly. Just an absolute pleasure to work with, not to mention quite possibly the sweetest person on earth. I can't wait to work with her again, and cannot recommend her enough!
Teresa is an amazing person and photographer. Teresa was our Wedding Photographer and also did our engagement pictures. Teresa's booking process was so easy, and she was more than accommodating with our needs. Communication was great, and she answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly. Our family and friends all gave us compliments about Teresa and how kind and helpful she is. Our pictures turned out better than we could've imagined, as she captured such amazing memories in the most beautiful way. We are blessed to have such beautiful photos from our engagement and wedding that we will happily look back on for the rest of our lives. Thank you, Teresa for not only being a wonderful photographer, but a great new friend. We are lucky to have found you!
Teresa is everything you want in a photographer. She masterfully blends her artistic talent and calm demeanor with your vision to put you at ease and capture all those must-have photos, as well as the candids you didn’t even know you needed! Her ability to work with natural lighting to evoke a certain mood is impressive and beautiful. She’s passionate, professional and possesses a quiet confidence. It’s not often that you come across a photographer so gifted.
