My goal is to showcase a couple's life, love, and their big event in an authentic and realistic manner. Capturing the real moments between you and your loved one without super "posed" images is what I strive for. I want to make your day go as smoothly as possible and I want it to be as fun as possible. Bring on the laughs, the tears, and the dancing!

The twelve:9 photography mission.


Hi, I'm Tessa!

destination wedding and elopement  photographer based in north dakota 

I aim to create a space where you feel comfortable being yourselves. I want to capture the love that you have for your people. Photos are such a timeless investment and you deserve to have photos that you will love for years to come. The little smirks, the belly laughs, and raw emotions are what set your relationship a part from any other, those are the moments I aim to capture. Let me tell your story.
