When we were planning our wedding, photography was where we wanted to put the most money. Obviously, this is the only thing you will have after your wedding is over. Thus, we looked around and finally found Tonya. We met with her and instantly fell in love with her demeanor, her liveliness, and her spirit. She made us feel so confident in her and her work, and we couldn't help but fall in love with not only her photos, but with her as well. Our engagement photos were so perfect, and as we are getting our wedding photos back (literally a week after we got married, which is huge!) we are falling in love with our wedding photos even more!! She definitely kept in touch with us during the entire planning process and didn't just wait until the say of to reach out to us and make sure we were doing okay. She is passionate, and she treats each bride as her own family member. We are in love with her and we highly recommend her if you want CLASSY and TIMELESS photos! :)
Review on Wedding Wire from Abbey
"I can’t say enough about how happy I am that I chose Tonya as our wedding photographer. First, I should start by saying her photos are amazing. I knew I didn’t want whitewashed, cookie-cutter pictures of the most important day of my life - I wanted them to be colorful and bright, highlighting the joy of the day, and boy, did she make that happen! Secondly, Tonya is just an all-around wonderful human being. I can’t tell you how many late-night FaceTime calls I had with her - she would always take time to talk with me, even with our 3-hour time difference. All in all, I can’t recommend her enough! "

"Tonya is your best choice, no questions asked. We enjoyed working with her so much, and I'm positive we will continue to use her services for years to come! Not only is she INCREDIBLY talented, she is also an amazing person. She makes everything fun, enjoyable, and stress-free. The second my husband and I saw her work, we knew we needed that for our wedding! Her photos are beautiful, and I can't even believe how happy we are with them."

"Tonya did our engagement photos and our elopement photos and they both turned out AMAZING! She was so fun to work with and gave us great direction throughout the sessions. She also brought us new and exciting places to take pictures as she seems to always be expanding her shots. She has a great eye for taking photos and I know we will cherish the great pictures we have for a very long time!"

Yes! I only take on 25 weddings a year. Why? Because I want to make sure that each bride and groom get the best client experience you can receive. I want to come your wedding refreshed and excited to be there, not exhausted. I also want to make sure I get your wedding photos and products in your hands in a timely manner.
Yes! You get me as your main photographer. If something unexpected happened that prevented me to shoot your wedding my 2nd shooter would take over and another team member would be called in to assist the original 2nd wedding photographer.
I do have an associate photographer program, but unless mentioned in our first interaction I'll be the lead photographer at your wedding.
I started photographing weddings full time in 2009 and yes I'm insured.
I serve a variety of clients. I'm pretty outgoing, which makes it easy for me to connect to many people. Young professionals who know what they want, value photography, trust me to do my job, fun, adventurous, easy going, love to travel, give back to their community, love Jesus and love animals...just to name a few characteristics are my ideal bride and groom.
Fist you will email me from the contact tab. If I'm available for your date and I've not hit my 25 wedding limit, we will have a phone call. After the phone call if we both feel we are a good match we will meet in person over coffee. At the meeting you'll look at albums and we will talk more about your wedding. If you are ready to book at the end of the meeting it's 25% down to hold your date and 3 payments of the rest.
Heck yes, I'll travel to your wedding! I'm kind of obsessed with traveling and my passport stays updated. In the past 5 years I've been to 4 continents and 35+ countries.
I only charge actual travel fees I incur when traveling, so no additional fees apply! If it's somewhere I really want to go I may even shoot your wedding for free! So email me!
