Tatum was the most incredible person to work with. She was so responsive, encouraging, intentional, and accommodating. Each step of the way during our engagement she catered to what we envisioned and made sure we were happy. She deeply cares about each of her clients, but even more than that, she treats them like friends. We always felt comfortable voicing our thoughts to her. She created a very comfortable and approachable atmosphere. I am so beyond thankful for Tatum and I couldn’t imagine anyone else capturing our wedding day. She truly brought it to life and caught special intimate moments that I can now look back on forever. Tatum is exceptionally talented and I feel so lucky that we got to experience that talent. Her photos feel warm, clean, fresh, and dreamy. If you are considering booking Tatum as your wedding photographer, I HIGHLY recommend it. You will not regret it, and you will feel supported and heard every step of the way!

Tatum was an absolute dream to work with and she captured our wedding day beautifully. The photos are stunning! Tatum was helpful and prompt in her communications leading up to the big day and had a calming but directive tone throughout the wedding day which helped us stay on track and keep us in a great headspace throughout the day. We absolutely loved working with her and couldn't imagine our big day without her and the moments she captured for us. We also had a destination wedding and she made all of the logistics of flying out a vendor super easy and she got our pictures back to us super fast. Would highly recommend Tatum to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!

Tatum killed it with our wedding photos! I am so thankful to have someone that was able to capture everything without me worrying. She captured the little details and important moments and made the process so easy. It was so fun viewing the photos with my husband.

Our session with Tatum was such an amazing and surreal experience. She made me feel comfortable, even though I felt heavily out classed by my wife, and I felt like the love I share with my wife was completely captured in the photos Tatum took.

Tatum is the absolute best. She captured all of the special moments from our day. You can tell she loves her job and you by the work she puts 
in. We were over the moon when we got our gallery back and can’t wait for her to capture more of our special moments in life.

Our experience with Tatum was better than I could have imagined! Tatum is so personable and makes it easy to feel comfortable while being photographed. All of the photos she took truly made my visions come to life! Tatum was so thoughtful and helped make everything run smoothly during the wedding and in every interaction.
