We are Tami & Ryan!
Husband & Wife New Jersey Wedding Photographers,
Best Friends, Parents and Lovers of Love + Adventure!
It All Started at a Wedding…
It was 2008. Ryan and I were at my childhood best friends wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. I was a bridesmaid and experienced a wedding photographer for the first time. In that instance, I KNEW that is what I was truly meant to do.
It felt like a serendipitous moment! It felt right and so very meant to be!
I jumped head first into learning everything there was about wedding photography and the business behind it. Thankfully, Ryan was there to hold my hand, and we jumped together!
We became a husband and wife wedding photography team! Since 2008, we’ve captured over 280 weddings together!
It’s been the greatest adventure!
xo, Tami & Ryan
Our Lucky Number
Hopeless Romantic. Mama Bear.
Introvert. Audiobook lover.
“Friends” Quoter. Travel Enthusiast.
It there’s one thing you’ll learn about me, it is that I absolutely love LOVE. I am passionate about capturing in the moment, joyful, romantic images of our couples most memorable day… or should I say, the beginning of their happily ever after?
I am a born and raised Jersey girl that met my best friend/soul mate/husband the day after I turned 18! We were friends for 3 years before we started dating and well, the rest is history! I have an associates degree in Business and a Bachelors degree in Human Resource Management. Even though I didn’t go to college for photography, I believe my degrees helped tremendously, since photography is basically 10% shooting and 90% business!
More about Tami:
- Mama to Rhys & Everly and fur-babies Bella & Cooper
- Guilty pleasures: The Bachelor Franchise, Binge Watching Shows on Netflix, Mojitos, Starbucks Americanos
- My favorite moment at a wedding is when the bride puts on their dress and has that “OMG I’m getting married today” moment when all of the butterflies appear in their stomach!
- My happy places are Disney (of course) and Laguna Beach, CA (where Ryan and I got married!)
Adventurous. Papa Bear. Smart Ass.
Business-Minded. Loves a Challenge.
Extrovert. Passionate about Hockey.
You’ll learn something about me pretty quickly after we meet… I am going to be your comedic relief, smart ass, lets joke around and have a great time photographer! Although, I do love a good, emotional moment, like capturing a well-timed tear falling during a first look!
I moved around a lot while growing up, and playing hockey and working really hard were my constants. I was captain of my hockey team and have always quickly moved up the ranks in every job I’ve had. Work ethic is so important to me in my regular 9-5 job as well as within the photography industry. I have an associates degree in Business and two Bachelors degrees in Human Resource Management and Business Management.
More about Ryan:
- Papa to Rhys & Everly and fur-babies Bella & Cooper
- Guilty pleasures: Chick Flicks & Hallmark Channel (Thanks to Tami… insert eye roll here… haha)
- My favorite moments at a wedding are the parent dances, for sure! Since becoming a parent myself, I am a sucker for those moments and already know that I will be a mess when I dance with my daughter on her wedding day!
- My happy place is anywhere I can have a drink in my hand, and my toes in the sand!
