We don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! We know that our Brides are unique and we work VERY hard to find them! We serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants joyful, genuine portraits of herself & her new groom, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an incredible EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with us is determining if we are the perfect fit for you! After getting to know you online, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! ...
1. let's be friends
2. save the date
Yay!! You were made to be a Forever Love Couple! Now let’s make sure your date is safe and secure so that we can make this dream a reality!!! We’ll send you a custom online booking proposal where you can review your package and pay your deposit to make everything officially official! Now that you’re an official Forever Love Bride & Groom, it’s time to get started!! ....
Let the fun begin! After you book, we’ll schedule your engagement session. And don’t worry... we’ll teach you EVERYTHING! We thrive at helping our couples get comfortable and feel like themselves. After the first 20 minutes of your session, you will be pros. GUARANTEED. I’ve NEVER had a couple not feel at ease! Even if you think you’re not photogenic or if your fiancé “hates having pictures taken”, you will be killing it after 20 minutes has gone by! That’s all the time we need to get rid of nerves and start capturing the joy of this new season of your life together! After your engagement session you’ll be featured on the Forever Love blog and will also be sent your online gallery of images to download and share however you wish.
Once we’re 8 weeks out from your big day, we’ll start making sure that we’re completely prepared and ready for your wedding! We love creating custom timelines for our couples to ensure that you don’t miss out on your dream wedding photos! You know all of those dreamy portraits, fun friend shots, and detail images that look like they are straight out of a magazine??? We work with our Forever Love Couples to plan their day so that they can actually have images like that of their OWN! After man years of photographing weddings in a magazine-quality manner, we know how to create the perfect timeline for a photography-friendly wedding day!
4. Timeline talk
It’s here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding days and so we never shoot less than 8 hours. This day is going to be a blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every bride needs while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on the Forever Love Blog the following TUESDAY! We like to share our weddings while everyone is still on cloud nine from the big day instead of keeping our couples waiting!
5. your wedding day!
After your wedding day is over, you will receive an online gallery full of all of your wedding memories! HUNDREDS and HUNDREDS of them! We encourage our Forever Love Couples to sit down with a glass of wine the night that their gallery goes live and enjoy reliving their wedding day through their images! Soon after your gallery is delivered, you will receive your album design (if you ordered an album!) and you can begin the customization process!

"A little over a month before my wedding I had a last minute cancellation on a photographer. I posted on a brides page on Facebook trying to find someone to help. Tamela quickly jumped in and offered a phone consultation that night! From the moment we began our conversation I was blown away with Tamela’s energy and passion for her work. The connection was instantaneous and I know she was the right person for the job. The experience just continued to surpass expectation. On our wedding day Tamela celebrated with us and felt like family! Before we left the venue that evening she even had a sneak peak video put together (from our wedding that day!) to show us some of the shots. On our photo reveal day Tamela made a memorable day even more special by adding so many special touches to show us all of the amazing shots! She was nothing short of professional and personable the entire time. I will Forever be thankful for her stepping in and taking on a huge roll for our wedding!"

"Tamela did my daughters senior photo's. My daughter is not comfortable having her picture taken and can be a bit stiff in front of the camera - Tamela was able to get her to relax and enjoy the day - I absolutely love the photo's - some of the best we've ever gotten of my kiddo! And my daughter actually said she had fun! So double win :) "

"I cannot say enough amazing things about Forever Love Photography. We came across her page when we were looking for someone to shoot a styled, adventure family photos. If you live in the South and are outdoorsy, you might already know how hard it is to convince someone to hike out 3+ miles for family photos (with a three year old). Tamela was so game for this experience and she was so accommodating to get the shots we treasure. We are planning to use her for all of our family photos for a long time."

"Tamela did an AMAZING job on my business headshots. Not only was her rate affordable, but she was also very creative- I didn’t have to give her any real direction. She understood my vision and delivered flawlessly. I would highly recommend using her services, and I will personally continue to do so."

"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!"
