this is the day

we met under the giant trees, in the valley where the church stands alone by the sea. we strolled down an aisle lined with flowers, passed through grapevines at the base of our favorite mountain, up steps to the castle that hosted this day. tents were raised to cover the heads of dear ones, where decorated benches and chairs kept them cozy around the fireplace. plates, linens and leaves in our favorite colors adorned the tables for feasting. music and melodies spun us into dusk and twirled silks and lace flooded the dance floor. glasses were raised throughout under the string lights and toasts echoed through the halls. smiles and laughter couldn’t be in better supply. tears of happy flowed without care. today hugs were endless and all were gleaming with delight knowing we’d all been a part of something bigger than even just one day. true love wasn’t just a fairy tale today. somehow, everything seemed possible.

Teri is fantastic! She did our engagement photos in Malibu, CA and knew the perfect time of day to go when the lighting was great and no one was around. They made the whole experience very comfortable, and the photos turned out so natural looking, not cheesy. She flew out to NJ for our wedding in April 2016 and were so much fun to work with. Everyone in the wedding party was commenting on how easy and fun the group photos were. Very easygoing and just captured the best moments, instead of creating the moments in a forced way like a lot of photographers might do. The turnaround was so quick too! If you're looking for a fun photographer who will make your photo ops a breeze, then definitely use Teri!!

First, let me start that I live in Southern California, USA. We were headed to Paris for a family trip and really wanted photos that weren't selfies. I wasn't about to hand over my camera to strangers to take family photos, so I hoped to find a photographer that spoke English and be in Paris when we were. I hit the jackpot! Teri was prompt returning e-mails and even took the time to voice verify with me before we left the USA. When we got to Paris, she even sent reminder e-mails before the shoot and made the entire experience very comfortable. Let me tell you . . . Teri knows Paris. She took us to numerous different locations around the Eiffel Tower to take photos, and made us all feel at ease taking photos with a stranger in a foreign country. Teri was very accommodating with my requests and the price was definitely worth it. The resolution and clarity of her photos are great, and the turnaround time was quick. I couldn't be happier with the service, the comfort and most of all, the photos! If you are in Paris, or headed to Paris, I would recommend Teri wholeheartedly for photos. She is very professional and you won't regret it.

Teri shot my wedding in Big Sur and was just the perfect person for the job. Not only does she have a fantastic eye and rather quirky, modern way of composing shots but she captured *moments* rather than just the staged stuff. Our photos are truly stunning; literally everyone I love has said so also. They're really, really gorgeous, surprising even me.
I treasure the photos of my littlest flower girl having a meltdown as we laughed during photos, or the big genuine smile of my husband's beloved grandmother during our wedding ceremony (she's since passed away and this picture is more wonderful than ever now).
The bonus round of the super beautiful gift she has: Teri has a very understated quality while photographing a wedding that was calming and lovely to be around. She was with my group of people as we got ready and her quiet attitude kept things low key. I feel lucky to have had Teri.

Teri was PHENOMENAL to work with, I will (and have already) recommended her to everyone I know getting married. There is NO way our wedding would have been captured as well as it was if it it weren't for her. My dad is a professional fine arts photographer, so I knew that hunting for the perfect photographer wasn't going to be an easy task. Wewanted a photographer with an artistic approach and almost editorial style that could not only capture the special moments but really take us back to the feeling of the moment. Every time we look at the photos, I am taken back to that moment in time and feel it all over again. She captured all the fun times and all the special, sentimental moments. She was never intrusive and always worked with us to get the shot she knew would be best. Teri made us feel comfortable and let us be silly. Throughout the whole process Teri was communicative, in touch and in tune with exactly what would make the important elements of our wedding stand out. Teri really got our vision and it's 100% evident in the photographs.

I have worked with Teri on a number of occasions, as a colleague and client. Her professionalism is bar none. She is so versatile in her style and she has a unique ability to capture each moment with the upmost artistry and nuance. Her attitude is always so joyful and she brings the same light out of her clients. Cannot recommend Teri enough.

My fiancé and I hired Teri to do our engagement photos in Madison, WI. Teri had only been to Madison a number of times, but we never would have guessed that based on her knowledge of the area. You could tell that she had done her research ahead of our photo shoot and knew exactly where to get some stunning photos. She was great leading up to the photo shoot and made sure to communicate with both of us to get a feeling of exactly what we wanted from our engagement photo shoot. We could not be happier with the images that we received from Teri after our photo shoot! We got so many beautiful shots and have gotten so many compliments from our family and friends about how great our engagement photos look. We would DEFINITELY recommend Teri to our family and friends- she goes above and beyond to make sure her customers are happy with their photos!
