I take a limited number of commissions each year because I value getting to know each couple. I genuinely believe that your wedding day will be one of most joyful days of your life and want for you to have the best possible experience.
Understanding what is most important to you before your day starts allows me to capture moments as they unfold and being comfortable with each other makes your wedding day much better!
Relaxed, Authentic and Enjoyable are three words I want your wedding day photography experience to embody. I work with each couple to build a time line, so that you can have the best opportunities for photographs while also relaxing and enjoying each moment of your wedding day as it happens.

I first came across Tessa's work when she photographed an acquaintance of mine, and I immediately fell in love with her work. Upon meeting with Tessa for the first time, it was like having coffee with an old friend. Tessa has the ability to connect with people in such a genuine way, and her passion for her work is very evident. She strives and succeeds in telling a love story though her beautiful photographs . Working with her was also a very easy process. She was always early to our sessions (engagement and wedding), answered all communications very quickly, and delivered our photos on time. Such a wonderful person and fantastic photographer!

I don’t even know where to begin or how to create a review that gives Tessa the credit that she deserves. Tessa was such a wonderful person to work with and made every moment leading up to our wedding and our wedding day so exciting and fun. From the very beginning she had our best interest and really strived to give us everything we could ever want in our photos. She wasn’t just our photographer, she was someone who was there to here our story and offer any help or advice we could think of concerning the wedding. She was so great at envisioning the perfect shots, guiding us through poses and making us feel so natural and comfortable. She had us and our entire wedding party laughing and was such a great positive energy to add to the crazy, busy day. It has been six months since our wedding and we still find ourselves looking through our photos in amazement of how beautifully Tessa captured the day. Tessa is a brilliant photographer and an even more brilliant person. We will be forever grateful of the gift she has given us of being able to relive our wedding over and over again.

Tessa is amazingly talented and has an eye to capture the moment beautifully! We could not have asked for a better photographer. She has an uncanny ability to capture the emotions through the lens, all while making you laugh and feel comfortable within your own skin. She is also one of the kindest and friendliest people you will meet - making you feel truly special on a memorable day. We are still taking in all the beautiful images and are truly in awe of her work. If you decide to choose Tessa to photograph your wedding, you will truly not be disappointed and will have gorgeous photos to commemorate a special day!
Choosing Tessa as our wedding photographer is one of the best decisions we made. She is a calming presence and knows exactly what she is doing. She made a point to get to know us as a couple and was available for any wedding-related questions and advice. Our wedding photos look like a dream. I have looked at them hundreds of times and continue to feel amazed at her expertise at catching all of the beauty in a single moment. Tessa is a wonderful person to work with and a phenomenal photographer.
From the first consultation meeting through our engagement photos, more planning meetings and the wedding day itself, we were beyond thrilled with Tessa! She was willing to do whatever it took to get a good shot, including climbing trees and fences. We absolutely loved working with her! She has such an artistic eye which makes her photos even more beautiful. It was so relaxing knowing that my photographer understood my vision and even helped shape it into something better! I didn't expect her to continue taking pictures throughout the reception, but she took many candid shots of our guests on the dance floor and I am so glad she did because those pictures captured how much fun everyone was having. We will truly treasure these pictures forever. Tessa is genuine and kind and has an intense passion for wedding photography. I would recommend her to anyone that wants a photographer that will take their vision and enhance it beyond their expectations. She captured the most important day of our life so beautifully.
Tessa is an amazing photography and has a passion for this field of work that is easy to see when you work with her. She not only took amazing pictures during our photo shoot but when above and beyond to coordinate w my (now) fiancé the picture perfect surprise engagement. I was so glad that Tessa was there to catch the smile, tears and this amazing moment for Joel and I. The pictures were amazing, she was so great to work with and I highly recommend her for any special moments.
Tessa is an incredible photographer! She puts 110% into her photography and you can see it in her pictures. She is not only creative but also kind and professional. She tells a story through her photography and it's beautiful. I can't say enough good things about Tessa! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!!!!
Not just a photographer, Tessa is an artist and a friend too. Upon our first meeting, it was clear she has a skilled eye for photography and is really easy to talk to and ideate with. Throughout our year of working together, she made my groom and I totally comfortable. She’s always responsive and willing to be a “gut check” for random wedding questions I had related to day-of logistics, which I greatly appreciated. Tessa has a lot of experience from capturing weddings, and also being a bride herself, so I appreciated that she could take the lead and set expectations with other vendors. Thanks for making our big day seamless!
Tessa did such an amazing job shooting our engagement pictures and wedding pictures. She is so sweet and is so passionate about photography. She is a great communicator and has such depth and range on her ability to capture those important moments. She is flexible and understanding of your feelings and needs. She is so patient, caring, and has a very loving spirit. I adore her and recommend her to anyone!!!
Tessa took our first family photographs. She did a FANTASTIC job! The photos were beautiful! I will treasure these photos always. I recommend her to everyone I know. She'll definitely be doing all of our family and special occasion photos in the future. Thank you, Tessa!
Aside from her beautiful work which you can clearly see in her photos, Tessa is also the sweetest, most wonderful photographer to work with. She does a fantastic job of planning with you for your big day and catching the details that are most important to you. She was by far my favorite vendor to work with, and her pictures that came of it were stunning!
From Our Website
Truly, I never expected to be as fortunate as I am, getting to wake up every day to do what I love: combining a fascination of all things visual with the art of storytelling. Tessa Maxine Photography was founded in 2012 from the belief that - more than anything else - love, connection and legacy are what matter most in this world. As a photographer, my passion is to connect, understand your style and vision and find out what's most important to you. Then, with an editorial approach, create a timeless way for you to remember all the heartfelt love and laughter that makes the imperfect perfect on a wedding day.
The goal is always to see and tell each story with fresh eyes and creativity. To not only create heartfelt timeless images but also help each couple to slow down, connect and soak it all in. I am passionate about capturing moments organically so that couples and their families can look back and smile. If you are interested in learning more about my photography services, please send me a note. I would love to hear from you! For years, I kept a camera with me at all times, observing and documenting life, preserving stories about the people that I loved most and the beautiful poetry that exists around us each day.
In a world full of clickable images that disappear seconds after being posted, it's so very easy to get caught up in immediacy of life forgetting the big picture. As your photographer, it is a complete honor to be able to give you back your day. Telling a story about two people who more than anything else want to hold each other close and celebrate their love surrounded by the people they care about most. On that moment when you two make a deeper connection, we crave for you to have timeless heartfelt images that years from now bring you back, remembering how your amazing journey began.
