Hi, I'm talia

You're here because likely something EXCITING is happening in your life! YAY!!! So, let's not just talk about ME, let's talk about WHY you're here!

Hopefully you came because you love looking through photos of mine...but there is more that goes into those photos than what meets the eye, right?! From the moment we talk for the first time we are forming a relationship, one that should feel comfortable, fun and easy! Let's face it your photographer spends the ENTIRE wedding day with you, will be holding your sweet new baby, fixing your hair, making your kids giggle, etc. so you want that person to be one that you feel good spending time with! You also don't want to experience stress on your most special day or during a photo session do ya? THAT is where I come in!

I have 10 years of experience shooting in all kinds of conditions & in all kinds of situations. I am here to serve you! More importantly, to have fun with you and make photos feel easy! Whether it's a fussy kiddo, or some fussy weather I have GOT YOU! Magic will still be made, promise! I'm here to help you relax and boost your confidence as you totally ROCK your shoot...because you will! Leave the thinking up to me and come ready to have a BLAST!

Capturing your


Your makeup, your grandma's lace, your daddy's tears, your special shoes, the gasp when you first make eye contact, the kiss, the cake, the laughs and all the dancing.


These are the ingredients that life is made with! The proposal, your first bump, the smell of a new baby, the adoption you've prayed for, your family snuggles, the way your toddler giggles, the first bite of birthday cake, the Christmas card, the graduation that came too fast, and the surprise party you never want to end.

Talia was an absolute dream to work with for my December wedding! From our engagement shoot to our December wedding she worked so hard to make all my dreams come true! Our wedding day was nothing short of amazing working with Talia by our side. She was such a team player from beginning! Talia truly captured so many amazing memories I will never ever forget from our big day. Every time I open my album the moments that get me every time are the photos of my dad and I. She got those moments so perfectly. There was no doubt in my mind that I made the right choice by choosing Talia to capture our day. She was so sweet, calm, and even nurturing in the times I needed her to be when I was getting overwhelmed. She was also so much fun at the same time when she made us laugh and she got all the smiles with my new husband. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Talia! You are truly one gifted and amazing person!

Where do we start? Talia is absolutely INCREDIBLE! She took our engagement and wedding photos, and we couldn’t be happier with the photos! My wife is a photographer herself and was very picky choosing who we wanted to photograph our wedding day. Safe to say we made the absolute best decision possible. She’s friendly, easy going, and professional. Weddings can be super stressful and Talia managed to stay on top of our timeline and make sure everything was running smoothly and that we stayed on schedule. When we got our photos back, we were blown away not only by the quality of the photos, but also by the sheer number of them as well. It truly felt like she captured every moment perfectly. We had a ton of different angles and views of the key moments from our day, which makes it so easy to relive that day when we look back on all of them. Hands down would recommend Talia to anyone looking for a photographer for any occasion!
