California Redwoods Wedding / Santa Cruz, CA

Weddings

Willa & Scott

This one was truly something else. At home, backyard weddings will always have a special place in my heart. They bring a certain comfort and they’re full of so much extra special meaning and nostalgia. This day took place at Willa’s childhood home. A place that already holds so many memories and there was evidence of that around every corner. Walls and nooks were covered with framed photos of moments past. It was incredible to see the thoughtful displays of the love this family has already shared. And to know that my photos of this day would soon adorn some of these spaces and be cherished for years to come is such a special feeling. The morning leading up was full of eager anticipation and both Willa and Scott’s best peeps showed up big, offering heaps of love and support. And to say the ceremony was full of thoughtful intention is an understatement. They both took the care to incorporate individualized details while exchanging their vows. A photo a day on her iPhone is something that Willa has regularly practiced over the past couple of years. And to her surprise, Scott snapped a selfie of them with everyone after his vows. I just love the overwhelming joy on her face in that moment, pure happiness. The rest of the evening continued with a line up of tear jerker toasts and an overflow of happy tears under the setting sun. And when it came time for the dance floor no one was messing around. It was serious fun business all night long. If there was a rug it would have been cut to shreds. What a day to remember as your own. I’m so happy that I got to be a small part of it and contribute in a way that will bring them right back to it whenever they want.

If you are looking for a photographer who is professional, reliable, flexible, and immensely talented, work with Tammy! There are a lot of challenges you face as a person trying to get married in a pandemic, and from the second I spoke with Tammy on the phone, I knew I wasn't going to have to fret about the photography aspect of the wedding. She was so patient in understanding our somewhat chaotic vision and last-minute changes, and I was so thankful I got to work with her. She had such a positive attitude and all our guests commented on how great she was. And most importantly, her work was amazing! The pictures captured how special our wedding felt, and I'm so grateful to have them as a reminder of that day.

INNA & ANDREW

My husband and I had her shoot our outdoor engagement session and loved how elegant and artful they turned out. She also flew out to shoot our NY wedding! My parents loved her, which is very important to me, but it also is a great example of how comfortable everyone felt when it was "photo time" and during the reception. Weather had interfered with our outdoor plans and Tammy not only beautifully captured our last-minute venue change, but also helped the bride (me) gather her emotions as things were shifting, families were awkwardly wondering what's going on, and chaos loomed.

KAT & DYLAN

I don't know how we can thank you enough for what you captured on our wedding day. We know how much work shooting a wedding is, and that it can be particularly stressful when it's another photographer's wedding, but you handled it with class, poise, professionalism, and a prodigious amount of talent. Even more impressive, your personal style and light touch kept us both comfortable and at ease throughout the day. It's rare that one feels more comfortable with a camera following them around, but the calming force of your personality made that true on our wedding day.

BRIANA & MATT

She made our engagement and wedding photo experience so special, easy, and best of all comfortable. From the moment we contacted her, she was super communicative, answered all our questions, was totally open to our ideas, and worked with us to make both our engagement and wedding photos exactly what we wanted. Best of all, the photos turned out STUNNING and totally captured the vibe at our wedding. I was drawn to Tammy because her photos almost looked like they were in motion. Her images feel authentic and take me right back to the moment.

"I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START, TAMMY IS THE BEST!”

ALISHA & CODY

Thank you so much for making our wedding day even more amazing and laid back than we ever could have imagined! We knew from the moment we met you that we chose the perfect photographer. We felt like friends immediately. There were moments for both of us that really stand out that day where you were so much more than a photographer to us! We can’t even begin to explain how at ease you made us feel! You are so amazing at what you do and a blast to hang out with! 

"WE FELT LIKE FRIENDS IMMEDIATELY.”
