HI! I’m Tamra (aka Tamra with the Camera ;) ) I am a professional wedding and lifestyle portrait photographer in Greenville-Spartanburg, South Carolina. My love for photography goes along with my love for people, I’m emotional, chatty, outgoing and maybe just a little bit goofy. I am the proud Mom of three awesome kids, Brendan, Zoe and Natalie, and to our two fur babies Sunny and Bindi. I love to hike (ask me about my recent hike at Table Rock and what happened at the top), spend time with friends and travel, over the past year I have had the privilege of visiting Rome, Paris and Amsterdam. I can’t wait to tackle more of Europe next Spring. Pretty much anything outdoors makes me happy. I LOVE mint chocolate chip ice cream, Outback cheese fries, Chick Fil A and I am always up for a visit to any one of the fabulous coffee shops in the Upstate. If you are lucky enough to be in front of my camera you may hear me say “perfect” or “awesome” at least a hundred times. I’m obsessed with taking photos and that is no exaggeration. I love what I do and my heart is in it 100%, I truly feel that God has blessed me with this amazing artistic talent.
Experience and Style
I have been taking photos on a professional level since 2006, that is when I started my beach wedding business in Destin, Florida. I have shot well over 1000 weddings over the years, and I’ve lost count of the number of photo sessions I have been blessed with. Natural light is a huge element to my photography, you won’t see me carrying around a bunch of lighting equipment to your photo shoot or wedding. I do use flash photography when needed, but strive to find the natural light in every situation. I have loved photography since I was a child and when I became a mother that love grew, I am self taught, which I believe is the best way to learn, camera in hand. I am always learning and growing because I want to continue to be the best photographer I can be!
