Introduction: I specialize in photography for not just weddings but for every special occasion in life, no matter how small. Although my official business is young, I have been practicing photography for over 7 years now. My laidback demeanor helps make my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera even if they usually feel awkward when their photo is taken. The most important part of my job is to ensure you, the customer, has fun no matter what!

Tessa, of Elmwood Images, was incredibly helpful and made us feel comfortable the whole time we worked with her to get our engagement photos. We wanted sunset pictures in the middle of the forest of a back road. Tessa was more than happy to travel out of the way to get them for us. My husband and I are super awkward when we are put in the spotlight and she was so good at joking around with us while snapping the perfect carefree pictures. She got us to relax enough for her to snap the perfect sunset images that captured our casual style in a romantic way. They turned into beautiful invitations! I would wholeheartedly refer Elmwood Images for all your photo needs. We will definitely book with her again.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is flexible, I have a baseline price sheet of what is most common when it comes to expenses. I offer discounts for all first responders, nurses, teachers, and cancer survivors.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I like to get to know my customers first to make sure we are a good fit. I listen to their expectations of a photographer and if I feel like I cannot meet those expectations or if my style is not compatible I try to get them in contact with someone who does. I like to meet in person or on video chat so I can hear about the event and discuss the process and service contract. It helps to get to know the customer so they can feel comfortable with you before you spend time photographing them.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    After graduating college I went on a road trip across the country. Before my trip I bought my first DSLR camera and documented my travels. I fell in love with photography during my trip and have been hooked ever since. I started pouring myself into it every chance I got by photographing concerts, nature, and people as much as possible to better my skills. I have now been a photographer for over 7 years now and am proud of where by skills have gotten me and all the people and friends I have met through this medium.
