      "We love any time we have the opportunity to work with Tamara! She is lovely to work with on the day of the wedding and her approach is so thorough and meticulous you know she’s going to capture everything the couple wants and more! We love her attention to detail on the day and as planners and designers we appreciate how she captures not only the couple and all the moments but the details and design and all the work that goes into a wedding. Her work is exquisite and we feel fortunate each time we get to work with her!"

      Bella named "2021 Best Wedding Planners" by BRIDES says:

      “Collaborating with Tamara is a satisfying experience in that the process is thoughtful and the outcome is rich. For fine art photography, Tamara is at the top of her field.

      SAHAR AND TYLER (Bride & groom) say:

      "Tamara was the BEST decision we made in regards to wedding planning! She was an absolute dream to work with - professional, timely, well-versed, and a master at her craft! Tamara captured our fall engagement session, as well as our entire summer wedding weekend (welcome party, full wedding day, & farewell brunch) - both in beautiful Vail, Colorado. Not only did Tamara and her assistant show up on time to all events, they dressed appropriately, were well prepared for any weather changes, and most importantly, exhibited great teamwork with other vendors (i.e. videographers). I could not recommend Tamara more, I am confident in her skills and know you will be just as pleased as my husband and I!"
