You've had a chance to look thru the my website, you've seen my work and you're interested, now what? First, we will set up a call to ensure we are a great match. Typically during our call, we'll get to know one another - I'll ask you some details about your wedding day plans and you can ask me any questions you have!
We've chatted and you've decided to book me - yay! Wedding dates are only secured when both the contract & retainer are complete. I'll email you a brief questionnaire, then your contract & invoice will follow via email and both are done 100% online. Once those are complete, your date is officially booked!
Engagement sessions are more than taking pretty photos (although we do that too!). Engagement sessions allow us to practice in a casual environment before wedding day, which allows us to get to know each other and practice different poses. Engagement sessions are also perfect time to schedule your makeup trial. I am happy to help with locations, styling and vendor recommendations. Engagement sessions are also great for Save The Dates, invitations, guest books & more.
About six weeks before the wedding, we'll schedule another call to create your wedding day timeline. On this call, we'll go thru your entire day, hour by hour - what to expect, how to prepare, creating family formals shot lists, any special family and/or religious traditions, etc. I will work alongside your wedding planner to make sure that your timeline is perfectly synced with theirs.
Wedding Day is here - you get to relax, enjoy the moments & trust that I've got everything covered. Your wedding day Timeline will serve as the guide throughout the day. My team and I will document the day as it unfolds organically. It is important to me that you have the best day ever - so I will always make sure to get you back to the party ASAP!
Within a few days of your wedding day, you'll receive a gallery of Wedding Day Highlights! Your highlights will include a few images from each part of the day which can be shared on social media. Your final set of images will be delivered in approximately 8-10 weeks after wedding day via an online, downloadable gallery. We'll get to work on any albums you've already pre-ordered or help you decide on which tangible heirloom products that are best for you.
We are greater when we are equal. TMP is an inclusive brand & business and welcome people from every path of life. My hope and dream is to have a portfolio filled with every race, sexual orientation, body type, color, device, age, size or whatever makes you unique. You are welcome here.

“We LOVE Teresa!! She was the best vendor of our wedding. Working with Teresa is like hanging with your good friend. Teresa's calming demeanor was felt throughout our wedding day, by everyone. Teresa is truly an artist, she cares about every detail and knows how to make you look natural while getting the most beautiful shots! We did not stress for one second knowing she had our back with photographing one of the most important days of our lives!”
"BOOK.HER.NOW! From our first call, Teresa understood our vision completely. On our wedding day, Teresa was a breath of fresh air. She is professional, organized and SO helpful. Besides being a gifted artist, she brought a calming presence, which really helped me to relax so that I could actually enjoy our day. Teresa produces stunning images that has this etherial feel & captured us as a couple, our friends and family members perfectly! Everyone who sees our photos is obsessed too! I would recommend Teresa and her team 1000%!"
"We hired Teresa for our destination wedding in Rome, Italy as well as our 2nd wedding in Santa Barbara. She is absolutely amazing. She makes you feel comfortable, beautiful, and well...makes it fun. For us, picture taking isn't super comfortable but she just made us laugh and have so much fun...our joy really came through her camera. If I could give her a million stars I would!"
"Teresa went above and beyond for our special day. She put both mine and my husband's minds at ease with her extremely relaxed demeanor and helped keep us calm in the stress of the day. From the engagement session to our wedding day, my husband and I were so nervous, as we have never been comfortable in front of the camera. Teresa and her team are extremely professional and brought out the best in absolutely everyone she photographed. We are so sad that our special day went so quickly but we have Teresa's priceless photos to remind us of the perfect wedding day. We look forward to working with Teresa again on the next big milestones in our lives."
