"Tammy was honestly the best decision my husband and I made for our wedding (besides choosing each other lol). She was such a wonderful energy to have on the day, and her talent is incredible!! My family is still (more than 2 months later) talking about how comfortable she made us, and how clear it was that she knew what she was doing. My family aren’t really “picture people” and she was able to help them all relax, and make them laugh, and really just integrate herself nicely into the day while still being professional. My friends also all felt that! Basically every single person at my wedding has told me how lovely she was! She was clear and concise in our pre-wedding consultations, and upfront about pricing/schedule/everything. She was (and still is) prompt at responding to questions. And we still chat over Instagram pretty often! Our photos are incredible! As a plus-size woman, I get nervous being photographed sometimes because I’m worried the photographer will highlight something I’m self-conscious about, or will pose me in ways to “hide” my body. Tammy did none of that. She made me feel beautiful and posed us in flattering positions without hiding anything about who I am/what I look like. She caught every moment I wanted her to capture and every photo came out gorgeous. She has a really great eye and incredible editing skills!! My husband and I are trying to figure out when we can hire her again! We might make it an annual thing. That’s how much we loved her and her work! I HIGHLY recommend Tammy!! She was really the best, most calming, joyous presence we could have asked for!"

"Tamara Merri Photography was one of the best decisions I could have ever made for our wedding day! Tammy made every moment memorable, and not just because of the outstanding pictures. Every second of the day she made sure I was having fun, staying right on time (which she knew was a huge deal to me) and she was able to manage our families in such a fun, professional way. Leading up to the big day Tammy made sure to stay in contact the entire time, and answer any random crazy question I may have had. Not only was SHE amazing, her work was equally as amazing. I have had my photos for a little under a month now and I have looked at them almost once a day. I can not thank her enough for every single thing she brought to the table that day."
THE FUTURE GRAYS
Engagement Session: August 14, 2019
Wedding: June 2020
"I knew right away when I got engaged that I wanted Tammy to be my photographer. I had seen her work and loved her style-clean, classic, elegant. Also, her attention to lighting is amazing! First we worked with her for our engagement shoot. She was so easy to work with and immediately put my fiancé and I at ease (we don’t normally do the PDA thing and I’m not creative with posing). I gave her a few ideas about my vision and she immediately got to work and let me tell you she nailed it! I was in awe of the photos. On top of that, she was very professional and truly cared about getting the right shot-no matter how long it took. I really appreciated her going above and beyond like that. I cannot WAIT for her to photograph our wedding. If anyone asks, my first recommendation is Tammy!"

"My husband and I spent a lot of time looking at photographers trying to decide who would be right for our wedding. We wanted someone who was going to laugh with us, and really capture our personalities, as well as the beautiful moments. As we went through Tammy's portfolio, we couldn't find one picture that wasn't clear, vibrant and let her subject's personality shine through. We are SO lucky we found Tammy - she EXCEEDED everything we could've hoped and dreamed of in a photographer. She's a ball of light, joy, fun, and takes HECKA AWESOME photos! She took both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and we're having such a difficult time deciding which ones to frame. Thank you Tammy for capturing us and our day in such a beautiful way!"

"I was very skeptical about picking a photographer for one of the most important days of my life, which is why I chose Tamara Merri Photography! I love her work and her enthusiasm. Tammy and her second shooter were ABSOLUTELY amazing and I couldn’t recommend them anymore. From the moment they entered my hotel room to the moment they left the reception. They made this experience so fun, relaxed, and natural! My family was very hectic during our family portraits but Tammy was able to rally them together and get the most perfect pictures! Tammy also had my gallery sent to me in the time frame that she gave me during our meeting. It’s been 2 months since the wedding and I still can not stop looking at my gallery"

"I just cannot rave enough about Tammy and her amazing talent. Hiring her was hands down the best decision we made during the wedding planning. She was professional and just so much fun to work with. As a bride and groom, you really don't get to enjoy your special day because everything is just so crazy! Looking at the pictures immediately takes us back to that amazing day and the love and happiness we felt. I would recommend Tamara Merri Photography a hundred times over to anyone looking for a photographer."

"We absolutely LOVED working with Tammy! She did an amazing job working with our crazy schedules and we felt like she truly wanted to understand what was most important to us & then make it come to life. [...] All of our wedding photos turned out amazing, but my favorites are the candid moments Tammy was able to capture throughout the night. Those photos are my absolute favorite! Tammy did such an amazing job capturing the love, joy and excitement of our wedding day, and gave us beautiful memories to cherish forever! We highly recommend Tammy for any photography needs...she is the absolute best!"

"I cannot recommend Tammy enough. I am so in love with the photos from my wedding, she really helped capture the joy and beauty of the day. I was honestly on the fence of hiring a professional at all… it’s 2019 and everyone has a nice camera in their pocket these days, right? WRONG. Seriously, the photos from even my most artistic friends were ~nice~ but Tammy really captured something deeper than that. Aside from being obviously talented, Tammy is great. She has a warm, inviting personality. She can make camera shy people open up. I had several unprompted guests say “your photographer was awesome/so much fun/etc.” which really added a lot to the day. [...] Now I have this huge collection of beautiful photos of me and my husband that I’ll cherish forever."

"Tamara was absolutely incredible! Looking back at all of the moments she captured so beautifully has been unbelievable. As a bride or groom, there is no way you'll be able to see all of the love & fun that happens on your special day, but having a great photographer like Tammy helps fill in all of those little gaps. [...] I have gotten so many compliments on my wedding photos--even from people I hardly know who saw them on my social media. She's just so much more than a vendor!

"We had Tamara shoot our Courthouse Ceremony + Family photos afterward and she did a wonderful job! She was super friendly, put everyone at ease and took AMAZING pictures. They are some of my absolute favorites. She actually takes really good pictures that don't need to be over-edited, which we thought was super important and really speaks to her skills as a photographer. I would 100% recommend her to shoot an occasion you have and I know she will do a spectacular job. Thanks Again, Tamara!!"

"Tammy was a God send. She was so easy to work with and was up for anything. She actually listened to what we wanted and captured everything we asked for.... and more. The pictures came back and were more beautiful than I could have ever pictured them being. [...] I highly recommend Tammy to anyone who is looking for high quality photography and some one who is beyond passionate about what she does."

"I had an out of town wedding, and had to do all research online and through phone calls. Tammy worked with my budget, schedule, made great suggestions and took time to get to know our style and personalities. I was over the top happy that I made the call to her
