Meet the Photographer

I'm Tori.

I'm a photographer and travel enthusiast from the Portland, Oregon area but currently living in the Smoky Mountains of East Tennessee with my loving boyfriend Matt and our fur babies who I'm obsessed with. A few other things I'm obsessed with: roadtrips, cozy blankets, summertime, camping, matcha anything, and the couples I take pictures of.

Photography has been a constant in my life for 10 years. One thing I've discovered in that time is that photos mean the most when they're honest. I'm not about all the fluff. It's important to me that your photos are true and authentic. I thrive when I'm capturing an experience.

My approach to taking photos is unique. I won't make you do stiff poses. I won't make you do anything that doesn't feel like YOU. You guys like listening to metal music and headbanging? Let's do it! You're laid back and like pizza and beer nights? I'm there! You like the exploring the outdoors? Let's take a hike somewhere epic! My goal is to capture you as your authentic, true, natural selves. That being said, if you're looking for perfection, I may not be your gal. Of course I will always work 100% to make sure you are head over heels in love with your photos, but I want to capture you as you are. I love the in-between moments. The booty grabs when no one is watching. The belly laughs and the "ugly" cries. The moments when the love of your life brushes your hair out of your face to give you a kiss. Those are the moments I'm all about.

I do what I do because I love the uniqueness of everyone's stories, and I want to tell yours in the most beautiful way I can. You bring the story, and I'll bring the camera! If you're down for an adventure and want your photos to reflect who you are, we'll be friends in no time.
