A Visual Story Teller for the Wildly in Love!
Hey there! My name is Tatjana and I love taking pictures! I’m a wife, mother, and travel enthusiast who grew up in Germany. I’ve been to lots of cool places in Europe and the U.S. and now I live in North Carolina. I’ve been taking pictures of weddings and people for over 10 years and I love it!
When you hire me, I’m not just your photographer, I’m also your friend and helper. I want your pictures to show all the happy and exciting moments of your special day. When you get your pictures, I want you to feel all the emotions you felt on that day. I want you to be able to look at your pictures, album in hand, and remember how amazing your wedding and family moments were. Thanks for checking out my work!
Serving The Triangle, The Triad, Western NC, Eastern NC, and The Coast & Outer Banks
I have always had a passion for photography, and a passion for travel. I spent my youth growing up in Germany and traveling to nearby countries, and this gave me a solid foundation with which to understand the beauty of the world and all its places. I got into wedding photography in College and these two loves of mine naturally meet in the form of Elopements.
My husband proposed to me in Europe and it was such a perfect moment, the kind that needs to be captured and remembered, and this is what I hope to deliver to clients. Memories that are instilled in a photograph can last a lifetime.
I love being adventurous and love a good hike in the mountains, ANY mountains. Growing up in Germany and getting to travel throughout Europe really has shown me there are so many beautiful places to capture. My first language is German and I love my heritage, but my heart belongs to Italy my favorite country through which to take a road trip. Being a mom now gets me so excited to show my children and husband the world I have been lucky enough to experience through travel.
Here’s what you can expect when you work with me for your special day. First, we’ll either meet up for coffee or have a phone call so we can get to know each other better and talk about your vision for your big day. Then, I’ll create a custom timeline just for you based on some questionnaires we’ll go over together.
After your wedding, you’ll get an online gallery with high-quality pictures that you can print and share with your friends and family. And finally, you’ll get your very own album filled with beautiful memories of your special day. I can’t wait to be your storyteller!
I offer 6 to 10 hours of coverage, and you can also add on extra hours if you need them. If you choose my full day package, we’ll also do an engagement session together. I’m willing to travel anywhere in North Carolina for your wedding, and even outside of the state or country for an additional fee.

Q: What’s a fun fact about yourself?
A: I am a Travel Enthusiast that wants to retire to the Alps one day! Oh, and there is always a smile on my face. 🙂
Q: What is your favorite thing about elopements?
A: The Intimate moments you get to capture. It’s not about taking just photos of those moments, but tell their love stories. I want the couple to be able to relive their photos over and over again with all the emotions in them. I love the intimacy behind an elopement, where the guests are limited but the love is felt all the way around.
Q: Is there a wedding detail on your bucket list?
A: I have always wanted to shoot a destination wedding in beautiful Italy.
Q: Tell us about your favorite elopement!
Theresa & Jordan were not just wedding clients, but dear friends of mine who chose me to capture their unique love story. They made their wedding so fun and creative, from the perfect location to a ceremony in the garden and the reception inside a barn. Every bit of lighting and detail was planned out to make the day go so smoothly. We created such stunning images that they can look back on and reminisce for their entire lives.
“Tatjana was amazing! We seriously could not have imagined our big day without her! Our photos turned out beautifully and exceeded all of our expectations. She was professional and has an infectious positive attitude, so all of our guests loved her! We cannot recommend her services highly enough!”
