About Me

My love for the past and nature's imperfect symmetry influence my work and reflect how I see the world. I've been gathering memorabilia alongside my personal work since I first began photography in the early 1980s. These things keep alive that spark of the eternal flame within me. Below, you'll find an open letter to my clients as I embark on a new passage of artistic endeavors. And because of these new pursuits, I do not take wedding commissions at this time.

My personal Collected Works are available here for print, and some for download. The Shop updates periodically so check back often. Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy!

an Open letter from Tammy

To my photography clients...

"I’ve had the immense privilege of photographing your weddings, family portraits, businesses, architecture, special events, and products for over 25 years. And the time has come for me to shift my photographic eyes in new directions to seek beautiful light in new places. Thank you for being part of my journey. It truly has been wonderful working with you, and I appreciate your trust in my vision in each event and project. Photography has been a deeply authentic pursuit, and my way of keeping a journal. With gratitude in my heart, I will always remember and love the moments I've spent with you, always.

And I hope you remember, in 100 years someone in your family will have your photographs. They'll turn them over in their hands knowing they're holding pieces of history that are beyond price. Photographs truly become priceless as time passes. Print them, cherish them, hand them down to your children who will pass them down to their children, who will pass them down to theirs...

Your photographs are a record of your life and mine; they travel beyond us through the generations. That's why it's important to choose your photographer wisely. Thank you for choosing me when you did, for being part of my story. Some of you blessed me in ways I cannot express here, but someday you'll be shown and will understand how your choice made all the difference.

Enjoy looking through my personal collected works. In doing so, I hope you'll feel the love I have for this world in all its dazzling tainted glory. I captured some of these images at your weddings or around your portrait sessions. (One for thee, one for me.) Items in the Collections will change from time to time because I will always find beautiful light in the most unassuming places. God bless you."

"We don't make a photograph with just a camera; we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved."
