Tammie and Andy did a fantastic job at both my engagement photo shoot and at my wedding. They were friendly and efficient and incredibly energetic. I normally don't particularly like photos of myself ;), these photographers took my breath away. They are truly artists, and I would absolutely recommend them to my best friend.

My husband and I got married in Oahu, Hawaii but we wanted to capture some photos with our beloved dog. We contacted Tammie for a post-wedding photo shoot and we're so happy we did. Tammie was amazing with our dog. She really has an eye for a classic clean look and we couldn't have asked for more. I wish I had decided to fly Tammie out to our wedding in Hawaii to capture our wedding because she is so attentive to all the little details and she makes you look your best in all of her shots. Her photos are timeless. We used more of her photos from our post-wedding shoot than our actual wedding photos for our thank you cards. I highly recommend Tammie and Andy. I really wish they were there for our wedding in Hawaii. Don't make the same mistake I did, book her! You'll regret it if you don't!

Tammie is very creative. Her final products are awesome. We are very satisfied with her. She took all the pictures that we wanted. Each photo has story, so her photos provide great memories of our wedding day.

Tammie is very friendly, so she is good at making people comfortable being photographed. She is very good at making good relationships with venders, so she could figure out great photograph spots from the venders.

Another bonus point is that Tammie is trilingual in English, Korean, and Japanese. It was very helpful at our wedding because we had many Japanese and Korean guests. Communication is very important for the photographer to get nice shots. We appreciate her communication skills.

Moreover, her assistant Andy is wonderful. He helped a lot at our wedding. He is also a good photographer when shots are required from multiple vantage points at the same time. He got many good shots when Tammie was taking other angles.

We are thankful that Tammie and Andy were our wedding photographers.

Every bride has her priorities when it comes to her wedding. And while I think all aspects are all important, I knew a week, month or years after the best day ever, the only thing that would outlive my memory would be my photos.

After some time searching, and to no avail, my then fiance and I decided to invite our engagement shoot photographer from CA, Tammie, to NY for the wedding. Please know this option was not something we had entertained until that point since our budget was not unlimited. We loved the work she did for the shoot and believed we'd doing ourselves a disservice looking elsewhere.

Tammie's enthusiasm, energy and demeanor fit our style and personalities perfectly. Her attention to detail, eye for quality and creativity made our photos something everyone still talks about.

Tammie arrived in NY early for the wedding and surveyed our location for amazing shots. She also made herself available all weekend to capture the weekend's memories. Tammie was well prepared in knowing what was most important to us in terms of the kinds of photos we wanted (posed, action, special guests).

Her ability to be fun and professional at the same time made a difference! What really stood out for me were a few particular moments. The night before the wedding, Tammie helped us put together the photos of us that served as our table numbers into picture frames after spending some time with our friends and family earlier that evening. The day of the wedding Tammie asked us to go outside, in the cold, for some photos. I reluctantly agreed as she promised we would thank her later. As it turned out, one of those outdoor photos soon became our thank you card!

Tammie went with the flow of the weekend and when my crazy family dragged her to dance, she went along. She wasn't afraid to get dirty for the best shots. Her work speaks for itself and my expectations were exceeded!

If you are searching for the best check out her work! Having Tammie there as a part of my big day was memorable and well worth our efforts! THANK YOU!

Despite having to reschedule our full day shoot at the last minute due to weather, Tammie and Andy were fantastic and very flexible with their schedule. On the day we shot our engagement photos, they had already planned out and picked some of the nicest photo locations in NYC. During the shoots, Tammie and Andy managed to be both professional and fun as we traveled from Brooklyn to Central Park. Needless to say, we both loved the photos they took and on top of that the weather worked out as well.

On our wedding day, Tammie and Andy captured all our favorite moments and also managed to find time to shoot dozens of candid photos of our family and friends. They were organized, experienced and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend them!

Tammie is the most patient and talented photographer. She always made me feel so comfortable behind the camera. She has done my wedding, my sisters wedding, and photographed all my parties as well as my children's pictures. You might just say she is my personal photographer. I love the way she captures every detail. She has an amazing eye! Trust her! She will give you all the pictures you ever dreamed of. Let her just do her thing! :-)

Tammie does an amazing job to capture your event - especially the little nuances that you yourself may not have remembered. She has a wonderful eye for capturing the essence and what is special about about your event in her photography. Tammie and her awesome assistant/husband Andy go above and beyond to make sure your vision is captured!

Tammie is a great photographer and her pictures are beautiful. She is able to take the natural beauty of her surroundings and put it in photos unlike many photographers out there who digitally alter the photos to make them look fake.

Tammie is very easy to work with and works with you to make you feel comfortable while you're being constantly photographed. She is accommodating and comical with her husband, Andy. They both made me and my husband smile all day.

I highly recommend her.

If there were more stars, I would go higher. As a photographer myself, and seeing other photographers at weddings and their work, Tammie went above and beyond our expectations. She and her husband Andy, who assisted her, were so very friendly with everyone. They took the time to get to know who was who, and researched the area for other locations. Everyone loved her and continuous comments were heard from numerous folks, as to how attentive she was in getting unique shots and capture the story of the bride and groom. I can express my heartfelt appreciation to Tammie and Andy and am glad they could share the day.

Having Tammie photograph our wedding was effortless. Her photojournalistic approach meant she was free to capture all our spontaneity as the day unfolded. I could relax and enjoy the day knowing she was always on the look out for a special moment. I admire her artistic sense. She composes photos that are naturally beautiful. We had a great time shooting before the ceremony, I highly recommend doing that. The slide show she put together of our beautiful day still moves me to tears. We didn't hire a videographer but with Tammie's slide show it feels like we did.

Tammie is not just a wedding photographer; she's an artist. My photographs were beautiful and well-composed. I especially love the candid ones. The photo of my husband and I dancing and laughing is on my fireplace mantle; it's our favorite. Other wedding photos are displayed throughout the house. I would hire her again and again. If we still lived in L.A., I would have her take photos of my family for the holidays and other special celebrations. -Liz
