Oh the adventures I've embarked on and the breathtaking landscapes I've discovered, each one a reason I love doing what I do. Continue reading below to learn more about how I began my photography journey and developed a passion for capturing love in earth's most stunning places.



i am so glad you're here!

i'm Tessa

Hey there! I'm thrilled to connect with you and share a glimpse into my world. So, let's dive right in – I'm proudly married to my incredible husband and mother to our two boys (one's a 12-year-old dynamo and the other's a pint-sized 1-year-old bundle of joy), and our precious border collie, Polo (& yes, he's all bark and no bite)! Now, what fuels my soul, you ask? Well, it's a blend of my love for travel, the great outdoors, and of course lotssss of coffee!

Now, onto how my love for photography began - I've always had a creative eye but never knew what my passion or purpose was in life until my husband and I eloped + honeymooned in Alaska, my greatest adventure yet! We decided to elope due to neither of us having a lot of family & didn't want to have a big wedding that we knew we wouldn't enjoy. Our oldest son, grandmothers, and two of our closest friends were able to tag along, which made the day even more memorable! We are super introverted so we said our vows in private and then celebrated at dinner with our family & friends. However, our photographer & planner didn't completely understand our vision. It was then that I realized what my purpose in life was, it was to capture love stories for adventurous couples just like us. So, buckle up, fellow adventurers, as I take you on a ride to make your wildest dreams come true!
