Let's not be strangers anymore
Most people call me Tine ("Teen"). I'm a Jersey-born, California-adopted girl, chasing dreams and pointing cameras at things. When I'm not day-dreaming I also love a good cat snuggle, coffee in all shapes and sizes (but mostly sweet), and going on adventures with my family. Here's a little bit about me...
One thing is really clear to me - that I love photographing people and I want to tell stories. I've never felt confident in verbally telling or writing stories and I think that's why I love capturing them through images. I was introduced to photography back in high school when my dad handed me his film camera and said, "Here, have a ball." (Let's not even get started on how much film rocked my world). Since then, I've switched to digital and over the years have kept it a consistent passion - always dreaming of doing it professionally. Then, one day I stopped dreaming and started doing.
A lot of people ask about my style of photography. The answer isn’t exactly as black and white as I always thought it would be. I'm drawn to darker, moodier, and more dramatic images. I like to think of this as my style baseline. Unconventional style, quirkiness, grit, and character are all the kinds of things that get me excited to grab my camera and shoot. Every moment, wedding, event, and image varies so much. I really aim to capture each wedding and session exactly as it is felt. I try to capture the essence of the day while remaining true to a style that represents me and relaying the story that represents you.
These are the people I dance around the house with
I'm all about making new connections and having conversations over cups of coffee (or insert beverage of choice). You've made your way to my page for a reason. There was something that drew you in here. Whether you've begun the ultimate search for the right wedding photographer you feel a connection with, or you're interested in a collaboration, I would love to know your story and what brought you here.
