Simply the best!
Tonya is simply the best! We hired Tonya initially to take our Engagement pictures. She was friendly, responsive, and absolutely devoted to her work. We were so in love with the resulting photos that, when we decided to cancel our Florida wedding and elope in CT instead, we didn't think twice about hiring Tonya to capture our intimate celebration. During our special day, Tonya was a joy to work with. She made us feel special and loved! Bonus: she loves dogs so our puppies got plenty of photo-attention as well :) She captured our celebration and our relationship in their truest colors--playful but passionate, corky but sincere--helping us to relieve the day and our feelings every time we look at the photos. Her work is so beautiful and authentic! We hope to work with her again and again and cannot recommend her more for capturing your special memories!Sent on 09/26/2020

One of the vendors we were most anxious about getting right is the photographer - we do not consider ourselves particularly photogenic (there are mannnnny unflattering pictures of both of us floating around) and neither are naturally comfortable in front of a camera. Tonya might have magical powers because she made us look and feel like models - both during our engagement session and our small elopement.
From the outset, Tonya was friendly, comforting and professional and very responsive. She makes a point to get to understand your goals and make sure her style of shooting and editing matches your vision. I know she also takes great care in not over-booking herself so she can provide consistently high service and this really shows in the quality of her work and attention to detail. Our pictures are amazing and we will treasure them.
Beyond being an awesome photographer, Tonya went truly above and beyond to help us find a perfect location for our engagement shoot and even to offer recommendations for new wedding venues when we had to downsize our event (thanks Covid...). Her guidance, reassurance and overall positivity helped make a really stressful situation less scary and we are so grateful. We can’t wait to work with her again next year (fingers crossed for that vaccine!!!) when we hold our larger reception.
If you are looking for a great photographer who truly values her clients, look no further than Tonya!Sent on 12/04/2020

The best photographer!
Tonya is absolutely incredible! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we truly formed such an amazing bond with her. Tonya has a knack for producing really authentic photos and for making everyone feel incredibly comfortable throughout the whole process. I know that we will continue to look back at these photos for many years to come and they are truly the best souvenir of our wedding. Tonya really knows how to capture each couple's essence in such a natural way. I personally don't like super posed photos and she does such an incredible job of not making anything see posed. Her style is so unique and exactly what we were going for! I would recommend her to everyone in a heartbeat!Sent on 09/03/2020
