Hey hi hello :)
I'm so happy that you're here! Let me set the scene for you. Ever since I was little, I was obsessed with stories. What started off as an addiction to reading everything I could get my hands on, slowly migrated into wanting to do the same thing myself. What I didn't know at the time, is that the stories I would "write" about, would actually be love stories written in the form of photographs.
Each and every couple, has a unique love story that was curated just for them. There is nothing that makes me happier than documenting what makes you, you. Whether your story is only a few pages long, or has many many chapters, my goal is to capture it on camera for years to come. I want to be there from the first couple session, to the proposal, to the engagement, to the wedding, and so on.
I'm the girl who will jump in a lake fully clothed, hurdle over obstacles, stand on railings, and lay out on the ground, just to make sure that I get THE shot. You know the one I'm talking about. I'm also the girl who then comes home, curls up on the couch with a hot cup of tea and a bajillion blankets, begs her husky to keep her company, while perfecting every photo in your gallery before final delivery. I cannot wait to meet you and help write your story.
That quote rings true, and nothing lights me up more than being able to create a unique session catered solely for you. From location, to activity, to poses, everything is planned to make your session everything you could have dreamed of.
My goal is to document your love story and incorporate your authentic self in every photo. From creating dramatic in depth photos, to capturing authentic smiles, I will be there to guide you every step of the way. We will "drunk walk" through fields (no real alcohol required), spin around in circles, and sit down to cherish every moment. Whether it's in the mountains, at a brewery, walking around downtown, your entire session is a pick your own adventure book.
One of my favorite things is looking back at old photographs of my grandparents and parents, and seeing who they were back in the day. Looking at their wedding photos perfectly preserved in time is something so special.
You pick out every detail, choose the perfect dress, scour for the dream venue, until it's time to walk down the aisle and say "I do".
Those moments, are the ones you will look back on and smile, whether its on the eve of your 1 year anniversary, or in 50 years showing your grandbabies your perfect day.
Knowing that those memories are forever preserved, is the reason I do what I do.
I'll be the photographer ninja running around, being inconspicuous so that your guests can also enjoy your day. Every emotion, every important action, I'll be there to make sure we got it. I'll help make the family photos run as smooth as possible, even if I have to chase down Aunt Sally because she walked off to grab some of those appetizers floating around ;)
I'll be there when your dress might get a dirty spot or two before formal photos, ready to go to town with one of the many Tide Pens I carry around just in case.
At the end of the night, I'll be busting a move or two on the dance floor with you guys, while also getting those fun dance shots that show everyone having a blast!
It's the morning of your big day, and I check, double-check, and triple-check, to make sure I have everything I need for your wedding. I go over your timeline one last time, and rush out the door coffee in hand, ready to be your hype-woman for one of the best days of your life.
I'll show up early to say "hi", meet everyone and get some of those fun moments between your bridal party and yourself.
From then on, all of my focus is on you, the details of your day, and making sure you have EVERYTHING you need to calm those nerves, and make your day as easy as possible.
My love for books never went away. On the days when I just need a break, I still love grabbing a book and getting lost in the words on the page.
When not reading, most of my time is spent exploring the mountains with my pup, Coda. We love getting up before the sun is up and hiking long trails, always on the hunt to see the next moose (I LOVE moose).
I was born and raised in Romania, with parents that had a bad case of wanderlust. I have been exploring different places and cultures ever since I was a little kid, and to this day, traveling the world is still in my top 3 favorite things to do. I get so giddy when one of my couples mentions destination weddings, that I instantly research the BEST places to take them for photos!
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)
I’ve known Tina for 3 years now and she is hands down the BEST photographer I have worked with! She is easy-going and a pleasure to work with. Her work is top notch and she puts a lot of heart into what she does. If you’re looking for a photographer for your wedding or couple photos, she should be your go-to-gal!
I LOVE working with Tina. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she is an amazing person. She has a way with making all of her clients feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera.
Tina is an incredibly talented photographer! All the photos she has done for me always turn out amazing! She has done my engagement shoot and my wedding.
She does amazing work
Wedding Photography for the wildly in love and adventurous at heart
