TMINSPIRED ASSOCIATE PHOTOGRAPHERS

I am SO EXCITED to introduce you to my incredible associate photographer team!

An associate shooter is basically magic.
It's like me being in two places at once!

An associate program is something I have been debating about offering for the last two years.

With the pivoting and reimagining that the year of 2020 has forced us all to do, I feel like now is the absolute best time to start. I am extremely picky when it comes to trusting someone else with the couples who are trusting me with the task of documenting their most precious memories.

While this program is currently new for the TMinspired Photography brand, it has been well thought out. I am a full believer that communication is key. I am expecting to continue to iron out literally all the details as we move forward with each new wedding season. I have big dreams for where this can take us.

In the future, I hope to offer a larger group of photographer’s so we can handle more dates, more locations, and ultimately serve more couples with the TMinspired experience.

MEET THE TEAM
JULIA K.

Based in the PNW

LEAH

Based in the PNW

Leah grew up in the mountains, forests, and valleys of the Western United States, and her work is heavily inspired by the landscapes of her childhood. Her favorite waterfall is Wahclella in the Columbia Gorge and her favorite dinosaur is the Pachycephalosaurus. Leah is a documentary-style photographer meaning that, like a proper introvert, she sits back and lets your day unfold (and steps in with guidance when needed!). She feels that the in-between moments - when you are lost in each other and forget the camera is there - make for the most authentic images.

JULIA M.

Based in Northern California

Julia spent the first 15 years of her life in Japan (Yes, she is fluent in Japanese!) Over the past 5 years of photographing elopements and weddings, she has fallen in love with helping couples have an unforgettable experience on the best day of their lives. She found her adventurous soulmate through a mutual friend during a trip to Yosemite. Julia is all about hiking, being in nature and adding sprinkles of adventure on a couple’s special day!

AMANDA

Based in Southern California

Photography is Amanda's creative dream come true. You may hear her yell "YAAASS!" more than once throughout your portrait session, and she's a big fan of punny jokes. Around high school, Amanda found out for herself how important memories were. Not just the ones she was creating currently but the ones that she couldn’t get back. She realized that captured moments carry such a significance for her that she wanted other people to feel that way about their memories, too. Amanda believes that the unexpected moments can really make wedding photo galleries really special. Her all time favorite movies are Midnight in Paris and The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.

HANNAH

Based in Southern California

Hannah has a heart for travel and to explore new places, cultures, and food. Her wedding photography journey began back in 2009. As each year passes, she has come to appreciate more and more the importance of capturing weddings day exactly as the couple would want to remember it. The details that make this day so personal, the family there to support your love, the hugs, tears, laughs, and of course, you and your best friend. Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life, and it deserves to be beautifully documented and cherished for decades to come. Many have referred to Hannah as an "Old soul." Old films, music and photographs are some of her absolute favorite things to indulge in.

FAQS

• What is an associate photographer?

An associate photographer is a professional photographer who will come to document your love story on my behalf. They have experience photographing weddings, are insured, and shoot with very similar gear to me. I personally vet them before they join the team. They are there to represent my brand, and to provide the TMinspired experience for you.

• How does it work?

I still do all the communication and planning with you! You are paired with your associate photographer approximately 6 months to a year out from your day (possibly while booking, too!) and we will set up a phone call between you and the associate photographer for you to build your own rapport with them. The associate photographer will be there to document your elopement or wedding day on my behalf, send the photos to me, and I will edit and deliver them directly to you!

• What if we want an engagement session?

If we're doing an engagement session as a part of your wedding package, I will still be your photographer for that. If you would prefer to work with the associate photographer to build up that confidence of working with them on your wedding day, we can absolutely make that happen as well.

• Are associate packages discounted?

Yes! Because I am not physically there with you on your wedding day, my associate photographer packages are discounted for you. :) If your wedding is taking place when I'm in a different state and one of my associates is closer to you, you'll also save on any travel costs.

• Will my photos look like your portfolio and Instagram?

YES. The associate photographer chosen for your day will shoot with my similar posing style and vibe. They will then send me the photos and I will sort through and edit them in my style, just as I would for every wedding! It will feel like I was right there with you!

• Do you have sample galleries?

It's important to me that you feel comfortable and reassured that your photos will look like the ones in my portfolio! Since this program is still new, I am currently working on creating sample galleries for each associate photographer.
