About Tessa

I specialize in commercial, interior, and wedding/event photography in the MD/DC/VA region.

With 15 years of solo shooting and post-processing experience, I combine fast turnaround times with a keen eye for detail and personality. Ever since my dad gave me a 35mm film Nikon camera in middle school, I have never been without at least one camera in my bag.

Street photography is my passion, and in my free time, I keep a photo blog documenting my personal experiences in Baltimore and beyond. My love of candid and photojournalistic photography can be seen in any of my wedding or event shoots - my goal is always to capture all of those fleeting and subtle details that fly by so fast. With a down-to-earth and helpful demeanor at every event, clients can rest assured that their shoots will run smoothly. 

You might wonder how a person who loves photographing people so much got into real estate photography... the truth is, I really do love both! I studied Art History in college, and my eye was always drawn to architectural photography. Over the years, I have learned new techniques for shooting/editing both interiors and exteriors. I use HDR bracketing and wide angle lenses to accentuate space, light, and color. My motivation? I love seeing the looks on clients' faces when they see their "before/after" renovation photos; or learning that one of the properties I recently shot has sold faster than expected. In the real estate world, a good set of photographs can directly change the course of a sale (sometimes simply by catching a potential buyer's eye online)! 

Have another type of shoot in mind? Just ask! I've worked in countless other genres of photography including theater, commercial, lifestyle, live music, fashion, and more. Contact me here!
