Meet Tessa

Thank you so much for considering Starling Studio as you plan your big day.  I'm so glad you're here!

For over nine years, I've had the honor of collaborating with couples to capture their priceless moments.  I am passionate about visual storytelling and capturing natural photographs while allowing you to relax and enjoy your special day.

I am obsessed with all things wedding and truly love what I do! It is such an honor to spend the day with couples on one of the most important days of their lives and it’s something I don't take lightly. I have an eye for all the beautiful little details that tell the story of your day as well as a passion for documenting true genuine moments.

My degree is in photojournalism and I worked for several years as an editorial magazine photographer. So, wedding photography really was the perfect match for me as it mixes both my journalistic background for all of those lovely candid moments as well as my editorial background for the portrait portion of the day!

You can count on me to help you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, make sure no personal detail is missed, and tell your unique story.

Working with Starling Studio means you have a wedding professional on your side.  I will sit down with you to create a custom timeline (preferably over Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams!), be available to answer any questions that inevitably pop up throughout the planning process, keep the flower girl smiling, and ensure your day runs smoothly.  We're in this together!

When I'm not photographing weddings or providing freelance photography for local businesses and magazines, I spend my time with my three daughters and my husband at our home in Westerville. We love exploring Columbus, especially grabbing Vietnamese food at the North Market and spending long summer days running around the Columbus Zoo.

Let's chat soon about your big day!
