.............Capturing Forever...………


Telling your story....

As someone who is always behind the camera, I can appreciate the awkwardness and fear of being in front of the camera. It's a whole new world! My goal is to make you as comfortable as possible using a lifestyle approach with a touch of emotive. This approach helps to melt the stress away because honestly, you can't do anything wrong.

Weddings are mainly documentary for me, which I love! Witnessing the emotions surrounding a wedding is truly a blessing. Besides documentary, we'll do one or two posed shots followed by the unposed approach for couples and wedding party portraits. During the unposed prompts, feel free to ignore me as you intereact with your new husband, bridesmaid, or whoever you're in the shot with. Just as in my other sessions, I truly believe that this type of photography brings out the connection in people during portrait sessions. Formal portraits for weddings are no exception to this. 

Your final gallery will include 50+ images per contracted hour for a wedding containing a ceremony and reception.

Tonya was my photographer for my engagement as well as my wedding photos. I was absolutely blown away by the pictures. She was also super quick in sharing the pictures with me. I would definitely recommend Tonya and she is very reasonably priced! Thank you so much Tonya! I couldn't be happier!
