Tim & Tamela
e are so excited you're here! I am Tamela and this is my best friend, husband and lighting assistant Tim. We live in the beautiful state of Georgia native but we cover weddings, engagements and family photos all over the United States, specifically the East Coast. We love capturing timeless, true-to-color, light and airy images, filled with true emotions for our couples and we could not imagine doing anything else!
We are a household of animal lovers, my adorable 5 year old little girl Michaela, my husband and assistant Tim, and of course myself. I also have a 16 year old son who lives in Minnesota with his father. We have a Pug named Charlie and 4 cats: Sophie, Sarah, Sammy & Shakespeare AKA Hamlet. We love movies and just spending time as a family! We travel as often as we can and are marking off locations on our bucket list such as the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, and other great locations across the country.
When I am not behind the camera, planning a wedding or engagement session, or editing one of these gorgeous wedding albums, you can find me hanging out with the family playing cards, vacationing at the beach or in the mountains, hiking one of the many beautiful trails around Atlanta, or all cozy on the couch, wrapped in my big fluffy blanket watching a movie with Charlie curled up in my lap or sitting at my desk working on my next YouTube tutorial for photographers! Let's Chat!
Our goal is to create lasting relationships with our clients and grow with them through all stages of their life, from their engagement to their dream wedding and following them as they start to grow their family.
Our absolute favorite part is hearing all the love stories. You could say that I'm a big saps and you'd be right. I LIVE for these stories! From a very young age, there are two things that I have always loved, reading romantic novels, and taking pictures! Capturing the true, pure, raw emotion between two people, that spark, that connection, THAT is why I left my corporate job in Atlanta of 15 years and dove headfirst into turning my passion into a fulltime business.
Forever Love was named Best Wedding Photographers 2020 in Georgia - woohoo! We've been published nationally and internationally over 100 times in several magazines, blogs and on a variety of websites. I have a few feature publications coming up in Atlanta Style Wedding Magazine.
tory time! My love for the digital world started when I was a teenager. I was never the kid that asked for new sneakers or new clothes... I asked for all things computer technology. I wanted to know how I could create art beyond just taking photos and video with my mom's camera. At 15, instead of playing or watching TV, I would stay in my room for hours manipulating photos and editing videos! It quickly became my passion so I pursued a career in marketing & design and I absolutely fell in love. I had finally found my path to my purpose.

i Friends! My name is Brianna, but my friends call me Bree. Since we are all friends here, you get to call me Bree, too! I am a 20 something, carb-loving, small town girl who has a huge heart and genuinely cares about other people. I am a firm believer that everyone has a soulmate, that "one". I believe everyone is deserving of that perfect love.
Photography is my biggest love and it's been my passion a little over nine years now. It's the little things in life that are the most important. During weddings, engagements, and other sessions, I will give you little prompts and will ask you questions to pull those raw emotions between you, your partner, and family. I cannot wait to meet you and capture all of your unforgettable memories that happen in your life!

"Tamela at Forever Love is truly the best! She has photographed our engagement shoot, my wedding, a gender reveal, and is working with me on another shoot upcoming! She makes you feel comfortable and delivers high-quality prints and images! After she captured my wedding, I told her she had a client for life and it’s still true. If you’re looking for someone to capture a special moment, you won’t be disappointed with her!"
