Get my expert business tips during a one-on-one session catered to you
Take Your Photography Business from Side Hustle to Full Time

In less than one year, I went from 0 booked weddings to over 20. My Instagram following grew by thousands. And now? I’m booking 40+ weddings per year, and I’ve built a brand that allows me to share my heart with the world.

But I’ll let you in on a little secret… I never could have done any of it without help. 

Mentors, business coaches, fellow entrepreneurs, podcasts, webinars, online courses... all of these industry leaders have played a part in my success. And that is exactly why I want to share everything I’ve learned with you. I truly believe in community over competition. We rise by lifting others. 

When you invest in one of my mentor sessions, you’ll get more than just a couple hours with an industry peer. You’ll get a lifelong supporter and mentor.

Education is the secret to success.

“How can we expect our clients to invest in us if we can’t invest in ourselves?”

What if I told you that in a matter of MONTHS you could:

  • Build the photography business of your dreams…
  • Grow your Instagram following by thousands…
  • Create an authentic brand that screams YOU…
  • And book clients you actually want to work with?

When you invest in yourself, big, amazing things can happen.

Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? Well, I’m proof that it is possible.

My only regret in education? I wish I had invested sooner.

I get it. I know how hard it can be to juggle expenses as an entrepreneur. But every penny I’ve invested into mentor sessions, courses, workshops, webinars, etc. has been completely and totally worth it. 

I know it will be for you, too. Because with the tips and tricks I’ll teach you, you’ll be booking more clients in no time—the session will pay for itself!

Now, don’t get me wrong. You will have to work for it. I’ll give you all the tips, tricks, and tools I know, but it’s up to you to put them into action. It may feel scary at first, but I promise it will all be worth it in the end.

Not sure you can afford it?

“Teresa was truly the best wedding photographer we could've asked for. She was organized, responsive and so good at her job. She listened to what we wanted while also providing additional inspiration, and the end results were just incredible. What is most impressive about Teresa is her ability to make everyone comfortable -- my husband and I aren't necessarily shy, but I am not very comfy in front of the camera. Well, an afternoon with Teresa will have you feeling like a model! Her bubbly, infectious personality provided us and our families and bridal parties with the energy we needed to come out of our shells -- I would recommend her to ANYONE getting married in the Chicago area and beyond.

-Mallory + Trevor

“If you're lucky enough to snag Teresa for your wedding day, I guarantee she will be the most fun vendor you work with! Teresa has such an infectious personality you can't help but be in a good mood around her. She's incredibly bubbly and the absolute best hype woman. Even if you feel uncomfortable in front of a camera, Teresa knows how to make you relax and she even has some fun and unique prompts to help you loosen up and get those incredible shots you see all over her Instagram. She's so so talented at what she does, I can't recommend her enough!!”

-Kiersten + Brandon

“Working with Teresa was an absolute dream! Outside of her being the most genuinely kind human you'll ever meet, she's absolutely amazing at her job. My husband and I hired Teresa for both engagement photos and wedding photos and it was the best decision ever! Before this, my husband and I had never taken professional photos so we were both nervous\unsure of what to expect but working Teresa put all our concerns at ease. She makes you feel so comfortable and makes it so fun you forget you're taking photos. I like to call her the ultimate hype woman because there's not a minute she isn't hyping you up and making you laugh! The pictures we received were so beautiful and Teresa perfectly captured who we are and all of our special moments. She is truly the brightest light - there's no other way to describe her, and the energy and passion she brings to making your day so special. If she is available on your date, book her!”

Praise for Weddings by Teresa:

Now, more than ever, my mission is to become a mentor to others, just as my dad was to me. To help photographers develop the same confidence, drive, and tenacity that my dad taught me to embody. I want to honor his legacy by helping you create yours. 
Without my dad, Photographs by Teresa wouldn’t exist. He was my mentor, my sounding board, and my business coach. He passed away in 2021, but his wisdom and encouragement live on. Whenever I have a big decision to make or a conflict to resolve, I reflect on his advice and it never leads me astray.
