      FROM THE COLORADO MOUNTAINS TO

      CHICAGO'S CITY LIGHTS

      and destinations across Europe

      Born in Bavaria and dually based in Colorado and Chicago, Tamara brings an eye for detail, a heart for romance, and a distinctly European touch to every wedding she photographs. Although Tamara lives in the US now, she travels frequently to document destination weddings in Italy, the South of France, and her native Germany. She finds immense beauty in cultural diversity and feels most at home when she is surrounded by ancient architecture—perhaps due to her own mixed heritage. As your photographer, Tamara seeks to create unposed yet pristine styled images that convey a sense of place, communicate your story, and capture your unique beauty.

      "I cannot say enough good things about Tamara! She did our engagement and wedding photos and we were so thrilled with her shots. Not only is she a very talented artist, but she is an absolute joy to work with. She was incredibly efficient (which our wedding party appreciated) and got every shot that I requested. She made everyone feel comfortable, including my camera-shy husband. Our photos are stunning and we will treasure them for years to come."
