who is Tammy? AKA wedding photographer
First, I am a wife to Kent and a mama to three amazing children; Makenna, Carrigan, & Grady. Second my passion is with anything creative..I've always had a camera in hand as far back as I can remember. I cherish the printed photo that capture such little moments in our lives. This creative gift has blossomed into an amazing career in wedding and portrait photography. ~ I'm living my dream.
My favourite part of wedding photography is being witness to the love between two people as they promise to spend their life together…this is what I LOVE to capture in my photos.
I'd be happy to meet with you for a free consultation to discuss your needs and your wedding day timeline. Thank you for considering me for your wedding day photography needs and taking the time to read the information below… smiles, Tammy

the main event:
My style ~ I love shooting all kinds of weddings. I care about making your wedding day images the best photos you will ever have taken. I love telling the story of your day and thinking outside the box to create edgy romantic and unique images that you will cherish forever.
How will I photograph your day? First of all even if your not a detailed person…I am and I will spend some time capturing your wedding day details. In this day and age a lot of brides are creating their own unique wedding ideas themselves, so you better believe I'm going to capture your hard work.
2nd:A lot of information is gathered at booking/consultation so when I get to the ceremony site I will know what images are important to you and what I need to focus on and capture. Lastly; it's your jobs to relax and my job to make sure I capture your story and memories and if your relaxed and having fun your pictures will show it!
***my work is not done yet. After I pack up my equipment and leave for the evening. I soooo wish it was that easy…after your wedding I have a lengthy process of editing all your wedding day images. Your wedding images will take 4-8 weeks to be viewed. I will post a sneak peak on FB as a teaser.
The First Look:
way back in the day of pre-arranged marriage when a marriage was a business deal between families…bride and grooms were never allowed to see each other before the wedding. Nowadays that superstition is being kicked to the curb. I love to have extra time before the ceremony to capture amazing images of you and your fiancé. You will love the up-close emotional photos of seeing each other for the first time. Don't worry about old superstition. Toss'em out the window and let's spend some time capturing images you will cherish forever. Then after the ceremony you can party the night away with no delay.
how it worked; the bride and groom get ready separately just like 'normal' when both are dressed & we take the groom to a place with great light and prepare to start snapping. The bride is then sent to the groom. I can't tell you what amazing images 'the first look' session makes. At that moment you will completely forget we are there but I'll be capturing every tear, smile, laugh and of course the last kiss you too will share as an unmarried couple.
Chances are the first look photos will be some of the most memorable images of your entire day. (works great for shy grooms who don't want to share their emotions with all watching)
Engagement Sessions are free! Yes you read this right! My E-sessions or Love Sessions are 100% free…This is how it works. We get together at an amazing location (you dress super cute) for a hour meeting we chat for about 30 minutes about your wedding day. We discuss wedding location, bridal party size, how you want your day to go and how I will fit in as your photographer.
E-Session (Engagement Session)
After you get all your questions answered, we head out to shoot on location for about 30 minutes. This gives you the opportunity to see how I work behind the camera and if you really love my work. (very important for capturing your special day)
Within a week you will receive a gallery with low resolution watermarked images to download. These images are PERFECT for Facebook but won't print well.
If you talk it over and decide you want to work with me on your wedding day, as soon as the contract is signed and date booked I will give you FULL access to all HIGH-Resolution FILES. If you decide NOT to work with me that's OK too! If there are any images you would like to use for your save the dates you can purchase the high-res files for $75 each.
If you like to chat about your own custom love E-session please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 250.303.1460
so what's this gonna cost exactly?
I take your wedding day seriously and that's why rather than only photographing portions of it, I much prefer to shoot the day from start to finish. It is for this reason that I no longer offer several different packages. This keeps things simple & easy. The dress, venue, rings, friends and family…once the the day is done…your window back to your amazing day is your photos! Let me capture your memories.
