The PBT Founding Story

Since founding Photographs by Teresa in 2013, my mission as a wedding photographer has been centered around capturing the moments that turn into memories—to allow my couples to relive the joy and gratitude they felt on their wedding day and remember all the people who helped them get there.  

When my dad passed away on December 29, 2021, at the young age of 64, my passion for my business grew even stronger. He was my best friend, my “why,” and the reason Photographs by Teresa exists today.

Your intimate, in-between moments, your happy tears, the laughter you share with your people… these moments matter to me. If you are lucky enough to share your day with those you love most, those moments deserve to have their own space—not only in your memory, but documented permanently for life. 

As most girls do, I’ve dreamt about my own wedding day often, imagining my dad seeing me in the dress, walking me down the aisle, and holding me close during our father-daughter dance. 

I won’t ever have those moments with my dad, and to honor his memory, my goal is to ensure my couples can relive every single fragile, meaningful, core moment of their wedding day through photos that evoke emotion and tell their story.

Always laughing, blaring music while exercising, and booking my next travel adventure. If you’re into the enneagram test, I’m a 7w8, which means I’m super fun and energetic, but also take charge and lead—qualities every couple needs on their wedding day. I’m known as the energy queen, always recharging with running, boxing, or my go-to: an oat milk iced latté. I’m also known for saying I’m obsessed with you, so get ready to be hyped up to the sky, and feel free to call me T, T-Dawg, or BubblyT!

“There truly are not words to describe how amazing Teresa is, not only as a photographer but as a person. I can't believe we were lucky enough to have her as our wedding photographer. Our expectations were high (because we knew she was SO talented and had heard the best things about her), but wow. Expectations were completely blown out the window because they were so far exceeded!!! Being around Teresa makes you feel like she is truly a close friend of yours and the energy she brings is indescribable. Our entire wedding party, parents and friends all commented on how much they love Teresa and we've already had friends start planning their wedding date around Teresa's availability, because she is truly vital. Teresa was a true professional while making everyone feel so comfortable, bringing the best, most positive attitude and making you feel like a million bucks. I can't say enough great things about her because I could go on forever!!!! Her bubbly personality, energy, attention for detail, patience and kindness will make your wedding day feel that much more special. We were running behind on wedding day and she knew I wanted some dance floor pictures, so she offered for us to book her for some extra time on the spot so we could get all of the moments we were hoping for, which meant so much to me that she remembered I had said that and offered more of her time after an already long day. We love her so much and could not recommend her more. We will cherish all of the memories she so beautifully captured forever!!! Truly the best in the business!”
