I am a San Antonio-based wedding photographer and I am going to capture your day, NOT CONTROL YOUR DAY by constantly posing, directing, or scripting YOUR DAY.  
 
I believe in AND practice the Fearless Photographers' philosophy! I NEVER pre-envision stories or images from your special day. I let your day organically unfold and tell those stories—YOUR STORIES, 100% true, unscripted, unposed, unplanned, beautiful, glorious stories.  
 
I am absolutely in love with capturing the kinds of weddings where there are more hugs than handshakes, the dance floor rumbles all night long, and chairs are pretty much rendered useless after dinner. Whiskey bottles are passed around, most of the wedding party has been best-best friends since kindergarten, Grams is likely to lose her shoes and your partner is much more emotional than you are. These kinds of weddings are my jam! 
 
Since 2010, I have excelled in helping each of my couples plan for one of the very best days of their lives! I'd love to share my very personalized wedding experience, my super-human organizational abilities, and my U. S. Army combat skills (when needed) with you too. 
 
I want your wedding day to be as perfect as you do! I am all in with my whole heart! 
 
When I'm not behind my camera, you can find me hiking, cycling, backpacking, camping, enjoying water sports, listening to music, hunting for arrowheads, reading audiobooks, occasionally eating a few glazed donuts (my only weakness to sweets) and then re-starting my keto diet about every 10 days.

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

My policy is to not charge for mileage or travel until I venture further than 120 miles beyond downtown San Antonio, but for the right weddings, I'll extend that to 200 miles.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been in business since 2010 and have photographed just over 150 weddings as the lead photographer; however, I second-shoot for other leads as often as I can.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I shoot and edit in a very classic, timeless style. I don't follow trends. I don't want you to ever look back at your photographs and think, "What was I (or my photographer) thinking?"

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

My two most popular collections are the 16-hour coverage options. These run $5900 for single photographer coverage and $7400 for dual photographer coverage. Both have perpetual print releases and a 10-year backup.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

For local couples, I have a 35' motor home that I use as my mobile meeting space. I use this to conduct consultations and client meetings wherever it's convenient for potential clients or clients but within reason. https://atagirlphoto.com/mobile-meeting-space  
 
For any couples who are outside of my local area, we can conduct a Zoom consultation.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I am a certified professional wedding and portrait photographer by the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI). I have received numerous international image competition merits and awards.  
 
I also make it a point to attend at least one international photography conference each year and to take at least one master-level workshop with photographers who have been recognized as the "best wedding photographers in the world." Photography education is very important to me. I feel it helps me to deliver the best experience, products, services, and images to my couples.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I also strongly believe in photographing your wedding day in the most unobtrusive way possible. I let your day play out in the most organic, unscripted, uncontrolled way. I don't direct or pose any aspect of your day (or your memories) until we get to the parts that are strictly portraits. I want you to remember what your day actually felt like—not how your photographer paraded you around posing you for this and that creating all these "fake" moments.

From the very beginning, Tammy is what we were looking for in a Photographer. From our very first sit down conversation, we knew she was going to be our photographer to capture our memorable moment. She made the process stress free. She followed up with us from month to month leading up to our big day. From our engagement photos, which was a blast in the rain. To our wedding day photos. When Tammy says she wants to capture the moment. That’s what she does. She brings your photos to life. When you look at the photos that she delivers, it makes you laugh, smile and cry(tiers of joy).

Tammy, Read More thank you so much for everything. We appreciate everything you did for Kaylee and I. You went above and beyond from day one. Your knowledge, experience and guidance was truly appreciative.

Tammy was so excellent. She rocked every shot, from the early morning engagement session to capturing our last dance of the night. She captured the authentic moments, freezing them in time for us to keep forever. Thank you for documenting our story and our love.
