I truly am so glad you are here! Few things bring me as much joy and honor as the opportunity to capture the essence of couples on their special day. Since 2016, I have been blessed to transform my passion into my profession. Wedding photography is more than just a job to me—it is a beautiful pursuit that has captivated my heart since I was a little girl. The ability to freeze time and create lasting memories for couples and their loved ones is a precious gift to me. I am committed to creating timeless, elegant images that are filled with natural light and capture the beauty and joy of your wedding day. 

The privilege of documenting weddings is one I hold dear, as it allows me to encapsulate the love, joy, and genuine moments that define your wedding day. My utmost commitment is to help you curate images that allow you and your loved ones to relive cherished memories for generations to come. 

I can’t wait to get to know you and to document this once in a lifetime season!

"I can not say enough good things about Tanika! She takes AMAZING pictures and edits them beautifully! She knows how to work with her clients and create the best poses and she is wonderful at capturing the candid moments too! She went above and beyond as my wedding photographer. I am in love with our engagement pictures because they look so natural and truly capture the love between my now husband and I! Tanika spent her day off and traveled to our venue so that we could get my bridal portraits taken! Though the day was rainy on and off, she was creative in our poses and worked around the weather. She was so easy to work with and her passion for what she does is evident! My bridal portraits exceeded my expectations! For our wedding day, Tanika was very organized with a detailed timeline. She knew exactly what pictures to get and made us feel like everything was under control on our big day! I would recommend Tanika to anyone planning their wedding! I will always treasure these photographs."

She is incredibly professional in her work while still making you feel like she’s been a friend for years.
