a Nostalgic soul with An artistic approach
To me, each wedding is notable and every story is worthy of being told. I approach a wedding day with great thoughtfulness and careful preparation. I look to really understand my couples and be as helpful as I can throughout the process.
Storytelling is always at the center of my craft, telling your day as it happens. The way it looked and the way you felt. These captured moments will become the moments you will get to cherish for years to come.
This craft is an honor and I see it as my life's work.
Packages are tailored to fit your unique location, needs and creative vision. All of my wedding collections include signature coverage, consultation, comprehensive timeline planning, editing and beautiful, fully edited images. Add-ons include engagement sessions, albums, second shooters, 35mm film, rehearsal dinner and extra hours.

Firstly, I just want to rave about how Teri is a fantastic photographer. We were lucky enough to have her document our wedding in the Loire Valley, France. And we could not be happier with her work! She is such a warm, friendly person who makes every picture feel organic and natural. Before our wedding, she communicated with us several times– getting to know us and discussing details. She is so personable and easy to plan with!
During our wedding, she made us– as well as all our dear ones– feel so comfortable. Her photojournalistic style really captured the special moments, emotions, and beauty of the venue in an authentic and pure way. She truly managed to encapsulate the joy and love of the big events and the small moments!
As ours was a more intimate wedding, our loved ones enjoyed getting involved in everything– Teri indulged my younger brother with his request to take a picture or two with his disposable camera and allowed one of cousins to shadow her and take pictures. She ate dinner at my family's table and still managed to capture some of my favorite shots of the evening, despite, I'm sure, my family talking her ears off! The energy of the day was intense and full of excitement, and Teri was indefatigable.
When we showed people our "sneaks" before the full album, everyone was blown away.
Teri is truly an exceptional photographer.

Teri is a dream to work with. She tells your beautiful story through her lens and vision - a true artist. I'm an Event Producer/Wedding Planner and to work with her as a vendor is more than a pleasure. She brings amazing energy, will make you smile genuinely, looks like a guest, and keeps the day moving with ease. It's so important for the coordinator and photographer to jive - it's a complicated day and truly a whirlwind to get through as a team. If you're hesitating to book her - DON'T! It's the best decision you'll make.
“She has such a gentle, light energy that you immediately melt into feeling like yourself. No reason for forced smiles or feeling self conscious, she puts you at ease in a way that you can just be your most authentic self and she captures you in your element”

We first met Teri face-to-face for a VERY early morning engagement photo shoot (sunrise shoot at 6am!!) session a few months before our wedding (we later found out that this was on her actual birthday). At that point, we realized that we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. We absolutely loved our session. She made us feel very comfortable, easy and relaxed - we had so much fun! Teri was able to capture our personalities and the essence of our relationship on camera, which is a pretty tough thing to do! The pictures were amazing, and we love looking through them! From that moment forward, we actually started looking forward to having our wedding pictures taken. Teri took the time to get to know us, all the traditions and ceremonies of the Hindu wedding so that she could capture it authentically. She has a unique perspective, artistic flair and is willing to go above and beyond to capture the best shots while ensuring you and the guests are relaxed and comfortable. Teri did an amazing job with all our pre-wedding photo needs and with the wedding day pictures. We absolutely love all our photos and we would absolutely recommend her services to anyone looking for the most amazing wedding photo artist who is also tremendous fun to be around!

Which destinations do you travel to for Weddings?
What is your photography style?
Artful and Honest Storytelling. My style is a mix of photojournalism and fine art. I am focusing on the moments as they happen and also a great amount of artistry using composition, shadows and light as it is given.
I split my time between the Bay Area, Chicago and the Oregon Coast. I've shot Weddings in France, the UK, Mexico, NYC, Virginia, Florida, Minnesota, Colorado, Wisconsin and Texas. I travel everywhere for weddings and elopements.
When do we need to book you and what does that require?
How many images will we get?
For an 8 hour wedding package, expect at least 800 final images.
If your wedding is on a Saturday or holiday weekend, I recommend booking at least a year in advance. I have the most flexibility on Thursday, Friday and Sunday Weddings. I shoot weddings year round but my busiest months are always May, June, August, September and October. Saving the date in my calendar requires a signed contract and retainer.
