I believe your love story should be an adventure!
I believe your love story should be an adventure. So why should your elopement/wedding be any different? Let's pack our bags, travel somewhere gorgeous, and say some vows. (Well, you two say some vows. I'll just capture the moments!) Whether it be in Asheville, the PNW, or one of our bucket list locations, as long as it's gorgeous-- it's on our list!
Hi I’m Tessa! I am an elopement and wedding photographer based out of Asheville, NC. I am a lover of adventure, and adventurous couples. I love being able to travel to gorgeous destinations all over the world, and meeting/working with amazing couples while they celebrate their love with each other. My ultimate goal is to shoot destination elopements!

Like Most weddings, were on a time crunch, so much to do- so little time. We were still finishing details right until the last second. Tessa had just pulled in the driveway and immediately became involved in helping tie up loose ends. She is a young woman but has the clear and focused mind of a veteran. She is incredibly efficient and knows the shots she wants and how to get them. We feel incredibly lucky to have had Tessa record our wonderful day.

If you're looking for a great wedding photographer then look no further than Tessa and
Chris! They were amazing from start to finish! Professional, efficient, friendly and most
importantly- took the most beautiful photographs of our special day! They have TONS of
unique ideas for photographs and when I told them we wanted a shot that incorporated
PIZZA and our PIZZA tattoos, they made it work! It is one of our many favorite photos!
Tessa and Chris are truly talented and captured everything and we will treasure these photos
forever! Thank you so much!

My husband and I were adventuring in Oregon when we met with Tessa. It was pretty badass that she was down to climb rocks and hang out on the side of a cliff to get some amazing shots! Tessa was very down to earth, and our session felt more like hanging out with an old friend. I'd recommend Tessa to anyone who wants their raw emotions captured perfectly for any adventure.
Kendra + Jeff
I absolutely LOVE everything about the pictures Tessa captured of Jeff and I! Considering it has been 5 years since we had our pictures taken, I was a little nervous about getting pictures that represent us. Tessa made both of us feel at ease! It was so refreshing to feel like you were just hanging out with someone you've known your whole life. The moments she captured are ones that mean so much more to me than a traditional posed photo. The whole experience really strengthened Jeff and I's relationship too. I can't honestly say when the last time we laughed so naturally and constantly with each other like we did with Tessa! I cannot wait to travel back to North Carolina OR have her travel to my hometown in Indiana to shoot again in the future!! If you are wanting effortless pictures without the stress of worrying, Tessa is your girl!

Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Tessa! She did an phenomenal job and was able to get the most stubborn of groomsmen to produce a real smile. She made the experience fun and enjoyable. She was great to work with, very flexible and took the time to find out what we wanted in our wedding photos. We got our photos back in a timely manner and they were gorgeous. If your looking for a professional, creative, adventurous photographer whose always willing to go the extra mile. Then Tessa's your photographer, and your going to be glad you picked her!

My fiancé and I have never had professional pictures taken and were nervous about our engagement shoot - especially since we weren't going to meet Tessa until the day of! From the moment we met her, our worries went away and it was like we were just hanging out with a friend (who happened to be following us around with a camera). She prioritized our ideas and made them look even better than we imagined. Tessa captures real moments and we will treasure these pictures forever! We would recommend her to anyone that wants pictures of genuine interactions - especially those who want to have a good time throughout the whole process!
