I’m Tonya, wedding photographer, believer, and world traveler. When not photographing weddings in Knoxville, TN or around the world, you'll find me hiking national parks, sipping coffee, chasing sunsets, planning my next adventure or taking naps with my pup Bailey. I have more things in the color neon yellow than a construction worker, and if I could describe myself in one word, it would be "spunky". If you are reading this and thinking to yourself, "She sounds like someone I’d like to hang with", then say hello to your new BFF and photographer!
Blazing trails solo, living the wild and free life is what my heart beats for. My soul isn’t satisfied until I’m nestled in a cozy spot somewhere in the great unknown with my camera and journal in hand. Add in my favorite pair of Chacos and a cup of coffee, and this girl is set for the day. I’m not sure how travel became such a big part of my life, but I think when I realized that memories were something you didn't need money to make, I wanted to make all of them that I could.
I believe in a love that celebrates 50 year anniversaries. I believe in a love that is so fierce it makes the whole world jealous. I believe that tickle fights, inside jokes and laughing until you cry are keys to a successful marriage. I believe in a love that never gets tired of going on random road trips to nowhere. I believe in talking on the phone for hours about nothing and doing it all again the next day because the sound of their voice never gets old. I believe in the windows down and the music up and staying wild and free together. I believe in a love that chooses each other over and over again, every single day.
I'm all about connecting with my clients, so if you believe in these things too then Contact me for availability. If we are free we will chat over the phone first, then if we are a good fit, I'd love to invite you to chat over coffee!
I love the Lord and I have a heart for serving the people of this great big world locally and through missions.
I've traveled to 4 continents, 35+ countries, 37 states and several National Parks.
