Exploring the Arizona Desert at Sunset

This photoshoot just North of Bisbee, AZ and South of Tucson, was nothing short of perfection. Hannah and Kaitlyn were the ideal people for this beautiful desert background. We started the night embracing the sun and using a gate that was on the land we chose to shoot at.

"Tess has captured some of our most memorable moments"

She makes us feel so comfortable in front of the camera and is so kind and easy to talk with! We couldn’t imagine working with anyone else to capture our lives and the big moments. She truly has such a gift and captures our love so candidly.

"Her talent is unbelievable and she makes my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of a camera."

I am always obsessed with how our pics turn out every single time!!! If I could rate her a 10/10, I would! I definitely recommend Tess!

"Tess is absolutely the best photographer I’ve worked with"

Not only did she communicate honestly and openly the entire process but she made me feel comfortable and confidently with the knowledge she was sharing with me. During my shoots with Tess I felt very comfortable and open to being myself. I’ve done two shoots in total (one a boudoir andy wedding) with Tess and both times I had so much fun. My husband who is very camera shy was very open and bubbly in front of Tess and her camera, so with that being said I am beyond impress with her skills. The final edits are amazing as expected and the turnaround time that Tess gets them out is impressive as hell. All in all, Tess is an amazing and talented person to work with and I’d recommend Tess to anyone!
