Life IS A Wild CRAZY RIDE AND WE CAN ONLY PREDICT SO MUCH

Life IS A Wild,
CRAZY RIDE AND WE CAN ONLY PREDICT SO MUCH

information

Focusing on your connection with each other and story, rather than perfect composition and posing. This makes you see just how your face lights when you are by the person you love most and when you are encouraged to be your most true self. At the end of the day, what matters the most is that you come out of it loving one another more and feeling a deeper connection between you two.

HAPPINESS AND Honesty OVER PERFECTION, Always

MY Philosophy OF PHOTOGRAPHY COMES FROM A PLACE OF Nostalgia, WITH THE MINDSET THAT THESE Photos ARE NOT JUST ABOUT THE RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW, BUT RATHER THE Legacy OF THE FLEETING Moments BEFORE US THAT YOU WILL Cherish FOREVER AND EVER.

The beauty of life's treasures are of course in all those big moments, but they are in the little moments too. My job as your photographer, whether it's your wedding or capturing memories beyond your wedding day, is to capture how it all felt. So when you are flipping through your wedding album in ten, twenty and fifty years from now, you are taken back to that day frozen in time, remembering how it all felt.

Creative and fun. Great for brands, businesses, and those wanting a more elevated and editorial-inspired studio session.

"TAMMI MADE OUR BIG DAY REALLY GREAT. SHE HAS A Fantastic EYE FOR CREATING Beautiful ART, AND CAN MAKE THE MOST SIMPLE AND SWEET Moments COME TO LIFE. HER ABILITY TO CAPTURE THE Candid MOMENTS IS WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT HER WORK! TAMMI WAS A COMPLETE Joy TO WORK WITH, VERY PROFESSIONAL, AND Detail ORIENTED WHEN IT COMES PLANNING LOCATIONS, TIMES, AND EVEN CAPTURING THE BEST SHOTS. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND USING HER."  - STEPH + PHIL

"Tammi was literally a DREAM to work with."

a live client review

I am based in St. Louis, Missouri, but I am always traveling! I have photographed couples and weddings in all different kinds of states and a few places in Europe.

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND DO YOU TRAVEL?

Of course, you will get all the images! I don’t hold any images hostage! The only photos that are not delivered are mid-blinking, blurry, or unflattering. I never cap out on images. If it’s a good one, you’ll receive it. The amount of a completed gallery of images from a wedding always varies based on the day and events that occurred during the event, but generally you can expect 75-100 images per hour of shooting. 

For regular sessions, you can expect around 50 images in your final gallery.

HOW MANY PHOTOS DO WE GET AND DO WE GET THEM ALL?

You will have access to your own private online gallery with full-resolution and web-sized photos that you can download immediately and even share with loved ones. Final wedding galleries are delivered within 6-8 weeks. You do have the option to add on expedite editing and can have the full gallery delivered to you within 2 weeks for $850.

Regular sessions have a time frame of 2-3 weeks for final delivery. You can add on expedite editing for $200 to have this session delivered within 5 days.

WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT THE FINAL WEDDING GALLERY DELIVERY?

Just like a chef won’t serve you an uncooked meal, I don’t deliver unedited images. Part of the process is my signature editing style and vision. When you hire me, you are trusting this process. Every image will be fully edited in my signature style you see on my website and sent to you as a finished jpeg image.


CAN WE GET THE UNEDITED IMAGES?

YES!! I think seeing a FULL wedding gallery is so important when booking a photographer. When you inquire, I’ll be sure to send you a link so you can see the goods.


CAN WE SEE A FULL WEDDING GALLERY?

I have an extremely thorough backup process. No matter how tired and exhausted I am or how late it is when I get home, my number one rule is: before I got to bed I back up your photos to 3 different locations that night. In the morning, they are backed up to 2 more spots. You can rest assured that your images are safe in multiple places, including hard drives and clouds.


HOW DO YOU KEEP MY IMAGES SAFE?

Have no fear! Since I travel often, there’s a good amount of venues I haven’t shot at before. I’m not scared and you shouldn't be either. I will find the best lighting so that you are looking fierce in any location we are shooting at!

I will arrive the day before or early the day off. I like to arrive early so that I can find the best lighting and locations for images. If time and the venue allows, I’ll even go the day before to scope it out and find those hidden gems of locations to get the best light.

WHAT IF YOU HAVEN'T SHOT AT MY VENUE?

To reserve your date with me, all that is required is a signed contract and a $1000 flat-rate retainer. A proposal containing the contract and invoice are sent online. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to your wedding day. Payment plans are also available. Bada bing, bada boom! Could it BE any more easier? Do keep in mind that bookings are first come, first serve. This means whoever pays the retainer and signs the contract first, the date is theirs. I book as far out as 1.5 years in advance.


HOW DO WE BOOK?

I highly recommend adding on a second photographer for weddings with over 150 guests. With so many guests present at your wedding, having a second photographer helps capture reactions of family, another angle during vows and the kiss, candid moments happening during the ceremony that I may miss while I am focusing on you two. They can also be there to capture the cocktail hour or sweet candid moments of family and guests while I am taking formal family portraits.

Having a second photographer gives another perspective to your wedding. It can help make the day less stressful as well when I need to be two places at once. Example: Bride and groom getting ready at the same time, but different locations or if you aren’t having a first look, the second photographer can capture the groom and groomsmen, while I am capturing bride and bridesmaids if we are crunched for time.

DO I NEED A SECOND PHOTOGRAPHER?

I would love to meet with every single person that inquires and at one time I did. However, due to high demand, this isn’t a realistic option anymore. I do believe relationships are important and are part of the experience with me which is why I hop on a phone call with all my clients! Hearing someone's voice is way better than just chatting via email during this beginning process. I value connection and relationships and it all starts with the first conversation.

We will meet in person at the engagement session! If you don’t book one, then we can schedule a video chat so we can connect face to face before your wedding day.

DO YOU MEET IN PERSON?

Highly secure online bank transfer or check. Credit cards are subject to a 3.5% processing fee

WHAT METHODS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?

While my main focus and approach to the wedding day is photojournalistic and documentary, I also know how important family and bridal party portraits are too. You will definitely get posed family and bridal party photos in every wedding collection. If you want more of a different and editorial approach to family portraits, we can definitely talk details on this. I can bring a backdrop or we can rearrange furniture for a cool, elevated vibe.

YOU HAVE A MORE DOCUMENTARY STYLE APPROACH. WILL YOU STILL TAKE FAMILY AND BRIDAL PARTY PHOTOS?

Most people are camera shy! No need to worry. I know what it's like to be in front of the camera. There is no reason you will ever have to feel the pressure to perform for me. From start to finish, it will be a seamless process and relaxed approach when it comes to posing and directing is so you feel at ease! I'll offer up direction, but the main goal is to get you two focused on one another and your connection... and that's how the magic is created!

WE'RE AWKWARD IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA. I'M WORRIED THIS WILL AFFECT THE IMAGES.

Of course, I do! I believe the power of print is undeniably strong. You will have a personal print store located within your online gallery to conveniently order prints. Albums are a major piece of your wedding experience. It's perfect way to display your story and is offered as an add-on to any wedding collection.

DO YOU OFFER PRINTS AND ALBUMS?

While I wish I could blog every single wedding and session I shoot, I don't have the time. I pour so much of my time and energy into creating one-of-a-kind experiences for my clients. I do my best to blog when I can.

DO YOU BLOG EVERY WEDDING?

I bet you stayed here on this page a bit, captivated by the images you've seen. You truly felt like you were there. And that's exactly how and why I book. By showcasing these images, more clients will ask me to capture the day for them. I totally understand wanting to keep your photos private and personal to you, not for the world to see. By doing this, I run into the loss of revenue. Therefore, for this reason, I charge a loss of revenue and exclusivity fee for clients who choose to keep their images private and offline.

WILL YOU KEEP OUR PHOTOS OFFLINE?
