Tami tells us, “Since the summer of 2008, we have captured over 175 weddings together. Within this time, we’ve developed a system, like most couples do in life, when we know exactly what the other one is thinking, we know precisely what shots each other is getting and we never have to worry – we’ve got one another’s backs! Honestly, we couldn’t imagine not being a husband and wife team! There is no one else we’d rather capture a wedding with! Who better to work with than the one person that knows you better than you know yourself?”
All wedding collections include at least 7 hours of coverage, 2 photographers, an online gallery of images and a USB of wedding day images with a print release. Additional collections include an engagement session, a beautiful heirloom wedding album, and more!

Fun. Romantic. Fresh.
The connection between us (as your photographers) and you (as our bride and groom) is something that we look forward to! I like to have time to get to know each of my brides and grooms and build a relationship that is more than just a wedding vendor, but more like a friend! This way, I am able to get the most natural, comfortable pictures I can capture of them both! I love getting to know my couples, their personalities, and providing each of them with a wonderful experience on their most special day! I strive to capture YOU—not a stiff-posed, uncomfortable you—but a relaxed, comfortable, glowing, happy, excited, nervous, fabulous YOU!
When I realized I wanted to be a wedding photographer, I was attending college as a Human Resources major. I was asked to be a bridesmaid in my childhood best friend's wedding, took note of what her photographer was doing and realized that it would be an absolute dream to be able to capture someone's happiest day as my career! I was always that girl growing up that had a camera attached to her, taking photos of anything, everything and everyone, but never actually thought I could make a career out of something I loved! As I started my business, I graduated with my Bachelors degree in Human Resources and I think that earning this degree helped make my business what it is today. I started out photographing whoever I could, and worked as an intern for a local photographer before taking the leap and opening my own business. From there, with the help of my husband pushing me along and believing in me every step of the way, we've grown leaps and bounds! I never thought my dreams could come true, and now they have ten-fold!! I want nothing more than to continue growing and learning, but mostly just to be able to capture the best love stories possible, week after week, for some of the most adoring couples I've ever met!
Well, I am pretty much a hopeless romantic…so at the mention of a wedding I get all giddy and excited! I love when the bride and groom see one another for the first time for sure, but one of my favorite moments is their first dance as husband and wife—after all the pressure is off, and they've already said their I do's, I just love capturing the love shining from them! I have to admit, that yes, I will probably cry at least once during every wedding I capture—thank goodness for auto focus!
Take your time. Make your decisions based on your heart and what feels right. Make the BEST decisions for you both and don't let anyone take this day away from you and the love that you are celebrating!
Mind reading so I'm always one step ahead of what everyone is going to do!! That would be awesome!

I have two fur-babies Bella + Cooper! They are my loves and my children (until I have actual children in the future!). Bella is a Chihuahua/Cattle Dog mix and Cooper is a Border Collie/Terrier mix!

“Since we have gotten married, I have had countless people ask me for their contact information, and I always happily and eagerly refer. Tami & Ryan Photography was one of the best vendors we worked with throughout the entire wedding process.”
“The style of our photos was definitely what we were looking for; they were very modern with a variation of candid and formal photos balanced perfectly.”
“Tami and Ryan captured everything we asked for and more. There were some amazing candid moments that I missed happening with some of the guests which I can now look back on and enjoy because they were there to capture them.”
“A down-to-earth, easy to work with, wonderful photography company.”
“They truly took the time to get to know us, ensuring that they would be able to take the best possible engagement and wedding photos that would last the rest of our lives!”
“There were photos taken of each and every detail of the wedding during the prep, ceremony, and reception…nothing was missed!”
“Tami was one of the calming forces on my wedding day. I looked to her many times on the day of the wedding to answer questions I wasn’t really sure of (who should help me get dressed, when should I get dressed, etc.), and she really helped talk me through the whole day.”
“Their presence made us feel very calm! Our guests even loved them!!”
“Tami and Ryan have this uncanny ability to present themselves as very professional, while being approachable and easy going at the same time.”
“We ALWAYS received timely responses to phone calls, e-mails, and even text messages. Tami & Ryan Photography makes sure that their clients are prepared and stress-free for their big day.”
“Tami had our photos up and ready for us to view while we were on our honeymoon! We just could not even believe it!”
“After the wedding Tami was early getting me my proofs and I was blown away with the amount and quality of the images. She did such a great job of getting a little bit of everything and everyone.”(What does this mean?)
