Meet me

It’s hard to choose a wedding photographer because so much is at stake in the decision you make. Is the style going to capture how the day felt? Are the images going to represent your look for years to come? Will you feel comfortable enough with your photographer to be vulnerable during an emotional day? Will your photographer “get you?”

The photography you see through my camera reflects my way of seeing the world. Bright, optimistic, timeless, romantic, serene. I believe the most beautiful weddings do more than just marry two people and dance the night away. The best weddings enjoin two families together for a moment in time that will never be repeated. Like any good tale, your love story cannot be told well without a strong sense of place.


Why I photograph
I’ve dreamt of being a photographer all my life. My father was one, too, capturing the world around him through images. Although he passed away when I was very young, I’m proud to carry on our family tradition of telling stories with a camera, one photograph at a time.

How I photograph
I grew up in Bavaria, Germany, amidst wild beauty and natural wonder. I spent my youth learning how light hit the deep green forests, was absorbed within blue lakes, and lit up white mountains. I’ve chosen Colorado of all the places in the United States because it reminds me the most of home.

"Oh gosh, Tamara is THE BEST! She photographed my wedding, engagement shoot, and boudoir shoot. Literally, every photo is stunning. My husband and I are not the most photogenic of people and Tamara made us feel otherwise. Her work truly speaks for itself. We are obsessed with all the shots she has done for us. Not only is her work amazing but she is too. Tamara is the kindest person. She is always sweet, punctual, organized, and her response time to emails, texts, phones calls is amazingly quick (minutes/ hours). We are SO happy we found her. Thanks a million, Tamara!"



Jade & Jim

I knew I wanted my wedding pictures to look and feel editorial and beautiful as if they were shot for a magazine. When I saw Tamara’s portfolio I immediately fell in love. What drew me in was her soft lighting and the way she captured the moment – it all felt so romantic and ethereal. Tamara was an absolute dream to work with. She was very responsive, organized, timely, and provided great direction on how to pose. She captured gorgeous pictures and I would highly recommend her – you won’t regret it!

"I found Tamara on Instagram where I fell in love with her photos and style. I immediately emailed her and booked her for my wedding. I can't thank Tamara enough for capturing our wonderful day. Right from the start, Tamara has been amazing, she made me feel so at ease with everything and understood what I wanted. An angel to work with and very professional. I am so glad that she was the one who photographed us. Thank you so much Tamara and I hope to work with you again :) "

Photography was the most important part of our wedding and Tamara was the MOST PERFECT fit. I fell in love with her Instagram and quickly booked her for our engagement photos and wedding. Her visions, attention to detail, and the fact that she shoots in film (my love) as well as digital and brings a second photographer was everything I wanted. Tamara is the sweetest person. From the very first email when I was just asking for pricing and details, she was perfectly attentive. Her responses to my emails, texts, and calls were always so fast, I couldn't believe it, usually within minutes or hours. We had such a good time at our engagement session, which Tamara had rescheduled because she had thoughtfully followed the weather and saw it would be raining on the original day. Tamara helped us with every step, expressed joy when we shared Pinterest boards and photos of our vision, and was such a pleasure. Our wedding day was a snowy, wet, late spring day and she was INCREDIBLE. Her excitement while shooting our photos made us feel so special, beautiful, and at ease. These photos we will cherish our whole life. We can't thank you enough. Xoxo my friend.

The wedding photographer was our most important vendor. Most of our memories about the wedding will fade, but the photos will be forever. And the photos are amazing! I did exhaustive research trying to find a wedding photographer who makes makes beautiful art work. Tamara was recommended to me by a friend. And I loved working with Tamara. Her level of customer service is up there next to the Ritz Carlton in my mind. All of the engagement and wedding photos came back beautifully. We received SO many compliments! I know so many friends who wished they had allocated more of their budget to the photographer because they hated their photos. The best decision I made for the wedding was hiring Tamara.
