Meet Tinara

Although my  personality reads 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!

 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!?

I'm Tinara

The Perfect date


Be present with the one you love. Share in this moment together!

the perfect 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?

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.

I help my couples plan their intimate wedding or elopement exactly how they dreamed it. It's my belief that your wedding should be done your way, free of expectation and obligation.

As your photographer, I create and hold intentional space in your day for you to experience the real, raw moments with your loved ones, family and friends.

In every experience I offer, 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 a bold 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.

About the Experience

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 package I offer includes a custom Heirloom Album Design, to tell your love story in the most beautiful way.

I believe that marriage is more than just the wedding day.
