Tess of Tess Pace Photography is not only an extraordinary photographer, but our dear friend. As part three of the photography dream team to capture special moments at the party, she brings light and love to every occasion. Sharing an office with her has been a blessing — how fun to be surrounded by breathtaking talent! Read below to learn about Tess and her philosophy (and learn why we love her so much).
We are passionate about photography and the art of storytelling. We believe GREAT wedding photography is both editorial and documentary at the same time… and it is with this philosophy that we approach all aspects of our photography.
We find beauty in the authentic. In a quiet exchange when no one else is looking. In a loved one’s tear-filled eyes. In a heartfelt embrace. In real laughter – the kind that makes you loose your breath. We seek to find these wonderfully candid moments – often better described as feelings – in every wedding we have the honor of capturing.
We also find beauty in the creative. We are inspired by gorgeous natural light. By color. By vibrant fine art imagery. It is in these thoughtfully crafted images where we will often compose and direct to create something magical.
At the end of the day, when you look back on your wedding photographs, we want you to remember the people, the details, but more than that, what it felt like in that very moment… the love, the pure joy, the beauty… yes, all of that and more.
At the heart of it, we believe the only way to deliver beautiful photographs is to be deeply invested in YOU, your wedding day, and your unique story.
From Tess :: My relationship with Calluna began over 5 years ago when I hired Heather for my own wedding and we have since become great friends. I consider these ladies some of the best in this industry and every wedding we have had the opportunity to work together on has been an absolute joy. I have had a blast sharing an office with them this past year and I cannot wait to collaborate with them on their 10th anniversary “Modern Marie” inspired shoot and many more events to come!
