Hi there, and welcome to Wanderlust! My name is Tamara and I am a lover of travel, adventure, good food, my dogs, my husband, a great cup of coffee, and making people laugh.
As a 'Lifestyle Photographer' my sessions are relaxed and a ton of fun. You will be encouraged to interact and engage naturally, in an environment that feels comfortable and familiar to you; such as your home, a park, playground or beach. I will offer direction when I see that anyone is feeling lost or uncomfortable, but together we'll avoid awkward, stiff posing. Just relax, be silly, laugh and let loose- I'll be there with my camera to capture the moment.
Weddings are shot much the same. I'm always on the look out for genuine smiles, & genuine laughter. I use natural light absolutely whenever possible to achieve images that have that Wanderlust signature realism and dreamy romance. When editing, my mantra is 'Timeless and True'. I want the subject (that's you!) and the emotion in the photo to do the talking, not spiffy, excessive, trendy editing.
Why Wanderlust? Because it's a feeling that I know all too well. It's the desire to GO. It encompasses that feeling of excitement as you are about to set off on a new journey. That tingling in your stomach as you book a plane ticket. The excitement and nerves as you stand on the cusp of something unknown. There isn't a word that defines the core of who I am more accurately.
