I'm Tig. I'm a photographer based in Denver, Colorado. I'm married to a hilarious and patient guy (that I met in 8th grade) and we have three super cool kids and one lazy, old dog. I love mornings, candy and Jesus (not in that order). I love exploring the beautiful state in which we live, but am just as happy at home in my PJ's watching movies with my people.
I believe that good photos do more than simply document people, places and events. They communicate the intangible – they cause us to feel. They capture emotions, relationships, and personalities. They tell a story. I fell in love with photography for its ability to capture the essence of the people and seasons in my life. I will forever treasure the photos I have of my family as they tell the story of our life together. Every family has their own unique story. I would be honored to help you document the different chapters of yours.
Authenticity. Connection. Pretty light. Those are the things that inspire me. I love the look and feel of natural light and I use it almost exclusively. The majority of the photos I take fall under the category of "lifestyle photography". While I understand it’s important to get some “everyone look at me and smile” pictures to send to grandma, those aren’t the photos that really get me. The photos that I love to capture are the ones where people are relaxed and interacting as if I wasn’t even there. So if you are wanting a lot of formal-style photos where everyone is looking at the camera and standing up straight, I am probably not the photographer for you. While I don’t do a lot of detailed posing, I will give you plenty of direction and guidance to help set up situations where we can capture you and your people in an authentic and beautiful way.
