I will travel anywhere to photograph your love story. No place is too far for this wandering heart.
The love you share together is special. I know that no cookie-cutter shot list or stuffy prom pose could ever capture what you two share. I get to know you throughout the planning process so that I can document your day genuinely and purposefully. I promise to deliver a wedding gallery that feels like you and showcases what's important to you. My clients receive wedding galleries that are an authentic, photojournalistic documentation of their best day ever combined with editorial-inspired, artful portraits of them and their loved ones.
I promise to help you with the planning process so your day is stress-free and you receive the very best photographs possible. I deliver an unmatched experience by being so much more than a wedding photographer.
HEARTFELT IMAGES FOR MODERN ROMANTICS.
MY PROMISE TO YOU
for the couples seeking more love, more memories, and more laughter.
"In the darkest night hour, I'll search through the crowd. Your face is all that I see, I'll give you everything. Baby love me lights out. I love you like XO." -Beyoncé
I remember planning my own wedding.
I remember being nervous every time I emailed a vendor.
Would they accept me? Even more so, would they celebrate me?
The last thing I want is for you is to be stressed about being loved and accepted on your wedding day. I want you to inquire with venues you love who would be happy to have you and celebrate this beautiful love you have, so I did the work for you.
All of these venues have said, “Yes! We are inclusive and would love to be included in your guide.”

Where to begin? There is almost too much to say about Tawny and the business she runs. From the start, Tawny was warm, kind, and incredibly knowledgeable about everything. She was so open to any of our ideas and ran with them. Throughout the planning process we always felt like we were being heard. Formal pictures with a large group can be hard to handle, but Tawny was so patient and very clear on who she needed and when, and always with the kindest attitude. During the reception, she snapped some of the best candid photos of the guests, the scene, and everything else. No detail was left behind... And as for Tawny, you couldn't ask for a more passionate and professional person to be with you through the process... She loves what she does, and it is felt by all who are lucky enough to be photographed by her.
I cannot be happier with Tawny! Our engagement photos are gorgeous, and despite the fact I knew she was traveling, our photos were ON TIME and perfect! As both a lesbian couple and fat couple it was super important to us to find someone who could make us feel comfortable, and who would produce photos that didn't look like "straight but not." We wanted someone who could highlight what made us unique as a couple, and Tawny did an incredible job. I feel really beautiful when I look at these photos. I couldn't have asked for more. I cannot wait to book her for our wedding.
(Psssst! Fast forward: They booked me for their 2023 intimate wedding in St. Louis!)
Tawny was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. The photos were beautiful, Tawny was all-around professional and lovely presence at the wedding. She was incredibly organized too; she had our timeline down and had all the equipment needed for our night-time low-light reception. Picking the right wedding photographer can be somewhat intimidating and nerve-wracking as it's one of the bigger investments for your wedding day, and photographers are in charge of capturing the memories from your wedding. (You don't get a repeat.) My spouse and I were reassured early on that she was the perfect pick. She really captured the joy we and our guests were feeling in the moment. When we are 80, I can't wait to look back at these photos and think, “Damn, we looked good.”
I am trained in all types of lighting and all kinds of weather. You never have to worry that I won't be able to handle the unexpected circumstances that a wedding day brings.
My approach is much more about your connection, your heart— letting your true personalities shine through. It’s about capturing feelings and going beyond the expected to document the moments of your wedding day for you to come back to time and time again.
I care about you more than my shot list and your vision more than my Instagram. At the end of the day, what matters most is your wedding day story being photographed genuinely, authentically, and beautifully.
your love's got me lookin' so crazy right now.
