Hi, I’m Tamara Jennings.
But all my friends call me Tami. I was born in Japan, but grew up in Tacoma, Washington. Any other Washingtonians reading this?? I was based in Utah for about 2 years, but am now back in the PNW and I could not be happier about it! I’m also an official puppy cuddler (specifically my 1 year old doggo), avid Cafe Rio eater, and wanna-be baker. Yeah, I’m all about food. If there’s free food somewhere, you better believe I’m there.
Photography is my passion and I’m so glad I’ve found it. I specialize in weddings, and capturing love and emotion is my all-time favorite. I also do families and portrait sessions, so a few years after your wedding, when you have a little one that you want photos with, I’ll still be here for you 100%. I love building connections and friendships with all my clients and want to be here for you whenever you need new moments captured. There is something so special about having photographs to look at years from now, when you’re going through something hard, or need a reminder of the love and joy you felt in that moment. That’s why I keep my photos rich and classic, full of natural, earthy tones and real, unposed moments. I’ll be that person at your wedding making silly faces to make the little ones smile, and becoming best friends with your grandma. I’m obsessed with nature, so when it comes to your engagements and bridals, I’ll definitely be in my element outside, getting a little dirty, and exploring the paths less traveled. I’m all about raw emotions, so don’t be surprised if I ask you to whisper funny things in each other’s ear, or wrap yourselves up into a human pretzel just to get the laughs.
Starting my business was definitely a leap of faith, and I remember how tentative I was at first. For this reason, I have found so much joy from putting together styled shoots to help build other photographers’ portfolios, and leading mentor sessions to answer questions and provide the guidance I wish I had gotten at the beginning.
So, if you’re a couple, a family, or a fellow photographer, let’s be friends! My instagram is a great place to connect with me, and if you have any questions or want to plan a session, please message me on my contact page!
I can’t wait to get to know you! xoxo,
