She is incredibly outgoing and able to bring out the laughs and smiles in everyone. Our dog was the ring bearer and he's a golden retriever (so he has a small attention span), but Tasha was hilarious in grabbing his attention for photos! Tom was more subtle and took a bunch of incredible candid photos of guests and the wedding party. Tasha was also happy to take photos of our guests who wanted their photo taken with a nice backdrop. She provided 80(!!!) edited preview photos less than a week after our wedding and I can't wait to see the rest! She went above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. I highly recommend Tasha and Tom!!!

Tasha and her husband are an amazing team. They got every shot from multiple angles, which made it a fun experience to look through the photos, as some photos were my husband's reaction and some photos were mine to the same event. They did a beautiful job, and saw situations or... Read More lighting that we never would have noticed that made for gorgeous photo opportunities. Tasha also made the day of timeline which was so helpful to have, and she kept us on track to ensure the timing was right in order to get some phenomenal sunset photos. She truly captured the spirit of my wedding, the love between me and my husband, and was able to match the energy I needed at different junctures. My bridal party and mom raved about her, we all loved her liveliness and compassion. Heck, she got my two year old niece/flower girl (who is normally quite shy) to engage and smile for the photos. Tasha is fabulous. Tom is fabulous. I highly recommend them to any brides searching for a photographer that takes a high quantity of photos that will capture the love you share with your significant other.

This is a very delayed review, so I apologize to you both Tanya and Tom, as you two were just exceptional for our wedding. We hadn't met with them ahead of time, since we were planning the wedding from out of state. But immediately upon meeting them on our wedding day, we knew... Read More we had made the right choice by picking them. They were both very organized, as well as flexible. People were late to arrive for family photos, and they just went with it to prioritize taking other photos. While we wanted to take all family photos ahead of the ceremony, time didn't allow for this, but they just encouraged to get it done. They were open to our ideas for pictures of just my husband and I, as well as brought their own keen eyes. I would recommend to couples to bring ideas of what photos and different poses you want of just the two of you. My husband and I are both camera shy, and didn't plan this ahead of time, so we have a bit of regret in that area. But that's our own fault and not theirs. Thank you for your attention to detail, fun energy, and expertise to our important day. We are so impressed with the quantity and quality of photos you took. We couldn't be happier!

Tasha and Tom captured some great moments of our wedding and the spirit of everyone involved and we have a bunch of great pictures now.

I seriously could not be happier with hiring Tasha as our wedding photographer. The whole experience was truly fantastic, and I would recommend her to anyone! We initially hired Tasha because we liked the look of her portfolio: full of life and personality, without all the... Read More Pinterest-inspired posed photos that look stilted and forced. First of all, Tasha and her assistant are really professionals; they were on time (early in fact), were fully aware of our schedule, and kept things moving at a good pace. They also weren't afraid to go off script a little bit when they saw something nearby that would be a good photo backdrop. Mostly though, Tasha is fun to be around. She considers it part of her job to put her subjects at ease (I mean, who really likes getting their photos taken), and even though she was mostly a fly on the wall, the rest of the time she's a riot. Everybody enjoyed having her around, and she's a memory we all share now. (She even got my 3-year-old nephew to stand still and smile in our formal family shots. I still don't know how that happened!) Tasha communicated with us after the day to let us know when we'd be getting the photos. And seriously, the package we got from her! First of all, the usual online gallery you can share with friends and family where they can purchase prints and full res digital files; but more than that, she sent us a thumb drive with literally every photo (nearly 1,500) and a signed letter saying they are 100% officially our property with no exceptions. She also included a handful of 8x10s she selected, and--I kid you not--around 650 4x6 prints. I knew that Tasha would be a great photographer, but I had NO idea how much we were getting for the money. I can't recommend her enough!

Tasha and Tom were the best photographers and people you could ever possibly imagine working with! First off, our beginning experience with them when my husband and I were originally searching for a photographer was great. We could tell right off the get-go that Tasha was our... Read More gal. She and Tom were personable and loving towards my husband and I. We spent the first 15-20 minutes of our appointment talking about ourselves before even beginning our photography discussion. Tasha really took the time to learn about us and who we were as people before she even brought up her work and her business. It was very freeing and made us feel comfortable being around her. She is also very affordable and cares about your budge. She even suggested that I purchase my albums and books off Shutterfly because it would be less expensive than going directly through her. I was very impressed that she mentioned that. She cares more about photography than her business. After we immediately decided we wanted Tasha and Tom as our photographers, her and Tom were very responsive with us. Completing the paperwork and payments from the other side of the state (which is where I go to school during the school year) was easy and they were easy to get ahold of through email or the phone. Wedding day was spectacular with them both! They were willing to work with us and take a variety of poses or photo ideas that we wanted to do. As somebody whom respects peoples talents and doesn't like to get in the way of how people do things, I was thrilled to be able to do some ideas that I have stumbled across prior to the wedding. Tasha and Tom were prepared. They had radios to contact each other during the "first look" as well as other moments during the night when they needed to reach each other. During the formals, my husband and I had a BLAST! Tasha and Tom were relaxed and outgoing which made taking photos smooth and luxurious, which is pretty great for my husband as he doesn't always like taking pictures for long periods of time. Tasha made us laugh and gave us direction which allowed for my husband and I to look natural with our poses. Also, since they're so outgoing and laid back, my husband and I were able to get "touchy and intimate" with each other which is going to make for some remarkable photos. My family and friends are continually commenting on how amazing our photographers were, even a couple weeks after the wedding! The ceremony was great with Tasha and Tom. NOT ONCE were we distracted by the flash or movement of the photographers. It was as if they weren't even there. Same with the reception. The bridal party and guests were able to move throughout the flow of the night without any distraction or without anybody getting in the way. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND TASHA AND TOM! It was the best experience we could've ever had.
