Hi, my name is Tonya!

Hello! My love of photography started when I was twelve, as I grew up watching my grandfather taking photos of me and the world around us.

I have been behind the lens of a camera for nearly eighteen years! Every click of my camera is a memory captured forever that would otherwise be gone in a fleeting moment.

I take pride in every photo that I take. Each one is hand-edited by me. When someone passes on, photos are all we have left of them and for that reason, I never apologize for always being behind the camera. Photography is truly my passion. It is the most relaxing chaos you will ever experience and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my days than thriving in the chaos of a wedding or the screaming of a toddler that would rather be anywhere else.

When I'm not behind the camera, I enjoy spending time with my son; Oliver. I also spend a lot of my time writing and, occasionally, editing. I have previously worked at Walt Disney World and I strongly advocate for children with Autism and other special needs.

Tonya was a wonderful wedding photographer! I'm so happy I found her when searching online. The photos she takes are MAGICAL, I seriously love every single one. A lot of my friends and family has made comments to me that some of our wedding photos should be in a bridal magazine, and I totally agree! She was very easy to work with and laid-back, and she didn't make my husband and I feel awkward at all in front of the camera (despite us not really being "picture people," haha).
