Meet Tinara

When I started documenting love stories about seven years ago, I started to really fall in love with the raw emotion and the romance coming out of the photographs.

One thing that stood out to me the most was each of my couples just wanted a day all to themselves to get married. They wanted to avoid the overwhelm of large wedding planning, guest lists and expectations that drained the fun right out of the celebration.

I help my couples plan their intimate wedding or elopement exactly how they dreamed it. Your wedding day should be as you want, free of the expectation, free of obligations, free of the stress!

As your photographer, I create and hold intentional space in your day for you to experience the real, raw moments with your partner. I'm with you every step of the way planning the where, when and how!

don't worry about a thing, as I use emotive and authentic prompting to help create a fun and relaxing atmosphere so you can connect with each other and be present in the moment you are in. You never have to feel like you have to stand stiff or awkward for a photograph.

Your wedding day is as unique as you are! Choose your special location, dare to be different-- be adventurous! You can trust that having myself as your photographer on your wedding day, you'll not only experience a sense of excitement and fun, but you will know you never have to worry if its being captured.

I know that these memories are the most important to you, that's why I design a custom Heirloom Album for each couple I work with. From the smallest tear drop to the largest belly laughs and grins, you can relive each moment again and again, forever.

I'm Tinara
I'm so happy you're here!


"An intentionally intimate celebration where the focus is ultimately on the couple"

So what does it mean to elope?

It's about you! Have the time of your life!

Have an awesome day


I'm here with you every step of the way, to help you plan out the perfect wedding day!

Pick your season, and pick the back drop! Maybe its April 25th, "not to hot, all you need is a light jacket"

The Perfect date


This day is all about the two of you! Be present in these moments together.

Just you & your partner


Gone are the days where an elopement meant running away in secret to get married. Today, you can have the wedding day you have always dreamed of. It's about being present with one another. Get married your way, in a place that means something to you both, and allows you to feel truly connected. You can take in the moment. It's romantic, it's intimate,  and there is no one to impress.

It's just you, your true love, and (maybe) close family & friends who love you, in a place that brings you closer together. 

What is an Elopement?

Although I think I sound off like an eclectic novel, I bring a unique approach to every experience I offer.

I love allowing my couples the opportunity to connect and share in the moment together.. My joy of laughter brings to life the exclusive prompting I use when taking photographs. 

My couples feel at ease, relaxed, and can enjoy every minute of their day without wondering if they have to stand awkwardly and wait to get a photo taken.

You can take comfort in knowing that not only will I provide amazing photographs, but we may be besties after!

Self proclaimed as an ADHD extraordinaire, I like to keep things interesting. I've had a constant desire to be fun, entertaining and adventurous with everyone I know and meet.

When you get me going, I have a tendency to say "fuck" almost every other word. It's enough to toss the word "professional" right in the damn garbage! 

Underneath that loud mouth and eccentric exterior is just a lass who want to make people laugh, and hope to God they find me interesting!
No conversation is complete without a few toss-in quotes from some classic films or TV shows. My husband is the Star Wars nerd, but I am the Harry Potter dork-- Any Ravenclaws out there!?

Hey there, 

It's my belief you should be able to walk away from this experience with more than just a small USB that will only collect dust in your desk drawer. or scrolled passed on a social media feed.

You deserve something that will truly last forever.

Your memories should be revered and enjoyed through the generations of your family.

I offer only the most prestigious products that I can get my hands on, because your wedding day memories deserve to be truly cherished, and seen for lifetimes over.

That's why every elopement or wedding includes a complimentary album design, to tell your love story in the most beautiful way.

Beyond the Wedding Day....
