i'd love to capture your love

my style is natural, authentic, and timeless

Small and intimate (under 100 guests) with the focus on you two and your love -- that’s what TJP is all about when it comes to saying “I do”. All collections include high-resolution images with printing rights and special pricing on artwork, albums, engagement sessions and more! I accept a limited number of wedding collections a year to ensure that my wedding couples and portrait clients all receive the attention and luxury experience they deserve.

the

TJP experience

After planning a wedding myself, I know firsthand that as a bride, you wear many hats in the wedding planning process. I’m here to take a lot off your plate! Having photographed over 75 weddings and being a bride myself, I’ve mastered building a wedding day timeline that allows for the perfect amount of wedding photos while getting to spend lots of time with your guests. Rest assured, you will be taken care of and guided from the wedding booking process to the moment you get your beautiful images and beyond.

Fill out the contact form below and share with me the wedding you’re dreaming of! There’s no need to stress -- you’ll be taken care of & guided from start to finish in the photography process. I strive to make your luxury wedding experience as relaxed and fun as possible!

let's make it official

-> what's  next?

We’ll have an amazing time photographing your engagement session (if you’ve booked one)! Don’t worry, I’ll make sure your fiance has an amazing time as well! It’ll be laid back, fun and natural. It’ll feel like I’m not even there and it’s just an outing with the two of you enjoying each other’s company. Once your images have been edited, you’ll receive your gallery with a download code so you can send out your save the dates!

the engagement session

Remember how I said you’ll be guided from start to finish in the photography planning process for your wedding day? I’ll have a Wedding Day Questionnaire along with a Family Portrait List for you to fill out that will help me in the timeline building process for your wedding day! I’ll even send you a Wedding Day Details Guide that includes checklists and tips for things like packing for your day, crowd management, sunset portraits, and the first look (if you decide to have one). We’ll review and finalize everything together on the phone two weeks out from your wedding. We’ll go through your timeline and family photo list to make sure we’ve got everything down and ready to go for your big day!
