As the years pile up, photographs preserve the memories of our life. They are our only tangible link to moments that will never die. Photographs comfort us when the going gets tough and anchor us to the people and moments that matter most.

Imagine not having a single photograph to look back on your wedding.
The way you looked at each other as you exchanged vows. The joy in your father's eyes when he saw you in your wedding dress. It's an emotional emptiness that you don't want to experience.

Yes, wedding photography is an investment, but these are more than just photographs.
They are memories you'll hold dear for a lifetime. Don't let them slip away into a forgotten past.

TJ was terrific and and not just on the day of the wedding. He has the type of personality that is so easy to feel at ease with and while we were taking the pictures, it didn't feel awkward or forced. I'm so excited to see my photos. I'm so glad that we went with TJ because he gave us exactly what we wanted and made it so easy to do.
