engagement + wedding | testimonials
Tammy is a beautiful breath of fresh air with exquisite taste. Everyone loved her: from my mother-in-law, to my husband’s nephew, to my friends from college. She put everyone at ease while efficiently and speedily capturing family photos. There where no forced smiles, and she captured those shy moments of happiness, the ones when you forget the camera is even there. As for me, I felt blissfully comfortable with Tammy. I trusted her completely; it was as if a childhood friend, who knew my tastes and loves intimately, appeared to take my wedding photos. The photos are breathtaking. She captured the tiny details, the raw blissful laughter, and the regal Vogue-esq editorial moments. I could not have dreamed of a better way to capture our wedding.
Tammy was incredible from start to finish. She was responsive, professional, and had incredible suggestions for us every step of the way. The shoot was enjoyable and felt very natural, and our final photos were beautiful. We were both blown away by our interactions with her, and wouldn’t hesitate a moment before recommending her to others.
Just spectacular. Blew any expectations I ever had about a wedding photographer completely out of the water. Beyond her excellent photography skills, Tammy is incredibly warm, flexible, and above anything genuinely willing to capture some exceptional moments. Our wedding photographs could not have matched the overall vibe/mood more of our wedding and her ability to find the “magic” behind moments is truly a skill. From beginning to end Tammy had excellent communication, worked with us on what we thought was most important to capture, and added her editing eye to create some incredible photographs. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone in the RDU area (or beyond), and am SO grateful we found each other for our wedding!
Tammy is a complete gem, and you could not go wrong hiring her. She is creative, flexible, talented, and so so kind and wonderful. Her spirit naturally draws out your inner joy and makes photographs look even more beautiful. With our engagement shoot, she was flexible and excited, and had a way of making me giggle throughout the entire shoot. I usually feel uncomfortable in front of a camera lens, even if my husband is the one taking the photo, and I felt completely at ease with Tammy. Throughout the wedding, Tammy was organized and accommodated our request for large numbers of group photos. She was also super creative and would sneak us away for gorgeous shots. Additionally, she managed to work with our guests so easily, despite many of our guests having English as a second language. She is also incredible with children. Even when we were worried that some equipment had been lost, Tammy did not miss a beat and kept on shooting our photos with a smile. She is so professional and endearing, and we love her. While my husband and I are moving out of North Carolina, we plan on returning to see Tammy again when we have some little ones.
Tammy was an INCREDIBLE wedding photographer. If I could give more than 5 stars I would. We first hired her to do our engagement photos after finding her online and were immediately drawn to her wide-range of experience and artistic style that she displays on her website which if you haven’t seen it already, you definitely should check it out right now (http://lamourfoto.com/). After meeting her at our photo locations, we fell immediately in love with her quirky attitude that always kept us (and our dog, yes - she allowed our dog to be in the photos and came prepared with dog treats) smiling and putting us in fun positions that were unique and interesting and not at all looking like the photos that ever other couple has. When we finally got a look at the final edits of the engagement photos we were sold on her work. We couldn’t wait to invite her to do the wedding also. On the wedding day, she brought in a second photographer who do an equally amazing job capturing our special day. Tammy provides final edits on your one month anniversary which couldn’t come soon enough. Everyone who has seen the photos has absolutely raved about them and Tammy. The posed family and bridal party shots came out awesome, but even better were her action shots. Tammy has a very unique gift at catching wonderful moments in beautiful ways that are organic and heartfelt. We honestly couldn’t be happier and hope to continue to use Tammy as our photographer in the future.
L’amour Foto photos are more than forever wedding memories. They are truly works of art. Tammy and Michael [her second shooter] left no detail uncovered capturing the essence of this special moment. All of us enjoyed getting to know Tammy and Michael. They were delightful and very professional. I have already recommended Tammy and Michael to a colleague for their upcoming wedding.
Tammy came to our place to shoot an impromptu engagement photo session and I could not be more thrilled with the photos. My fiancé and I weren’t planning on having engagement photos at all because we feel that sometimes they can be flat and generic. We decided after all that Tammy’s style would suit us and we were right. Not only was she prompt, professional and unbelievably thorough, it was so much fun and Tammy made us feel relaxed. She shot some great photos of our dog as well and was incredibly patient and flexible when he wouldn’t cooperate. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly she sent us the edited proofs and they looked so great, we’re having trouble picking our favorites. The photos completely captured our style and had a beautiful vintage feel, so much more than I could have asked for. I would recommend Tammy to anyone who is looking for a creative photographer who delivers quality products. She truly was great!
I am a photophobe. I hate having my picture taken— despise it. It is always the worst at a wedding when the photographer is in your face and you KNOW your photo is being taken. Tammy was perfect for someone like me. Not only are her photos beautiful, she makes you feel at ease. She did our engagement photos and it was so easy. We hung out for a bit before she started shooting so she could get a sense of who we are as a couple and what my level of anxiety is around a camera. She instantly made me feel calm and was graceful about my phobia, making me feel comfortable, sometimes I barely noticed that she was clicking away! She’s simply a pleasure to be around. She is gifted both in her art and in her charm and personality. She is a great photographer.
My fiance and I had our engagement pictures taken by Tammy this past September. From the beginning Tammy was open to making the day about what felt important to us, and was so flexible in making sure that we got what we wanted in terms of time and location. We were a bit nervous at first because this is the first time we’ve ever had pictures taken, but Tammy is so good at setting others at ease that those feelings disappeared quickly! She shot a wide variety of pictures and gave them back to us in different styles and colors, so we had a huge selection of pictures to choose from in the end (which was so hard because they were all beautiful!) We highly recommend her for engagement photos, and cannot wait to see her shots of our wedding next fall.
We brought Tammy in as our wedding photographer. She went above and beyond, and provided beautiful images that we will hold closely for the rest of our lives. Terrific work, and we can’t thank her enough.
Tammy is amazing! She took our engagement photos and wedding photos, and went out of her way to make sure that we got everything we wanted. The quality of the pictures is out of this world good. I would highly recommend her!!! She’s one of the few photographers out there that captures emotions in her pictures.
