Master Senior Associate Tina

After a brief stint in architectural photography, Tina found herself completely inspired by photographing people and documenting their stories. While her formal education was completed at Webster University in St. Louis, she had the pleasure to learn from and work with Amanda Sudimack and the entire Artisan Events team for over a decade.

When not shooting, Tina enjoys interior design, cooking, and traveling with her husband. Natural light, film, mid-century modern design, vintage chairs, and blue skies are just a few of her favorite things.

I love weddings! The beauty, the energy, the people, the spaces...getting to document such an important and meaningful event in a couple’s (and families’) life is truly an honor. I love getting know the people I photograph, telling their stories through images, and giving them the opportunity to share those moments with friends & family.

My favorite parts of the day? The getting ready and the dancing. About 15 minutes into a dance set my cheeks start hurting from all the smiling I do behind the camera. I so enjoy watching and capturing people having the time of their lives and celebrating with the happy couple.

  • Number of weddings I've documented? 120+
My husband and I can’t say enough wonderful things about Artisan Events, and Tina in particular. When we began the wedding planning process, we knew that photography was an area that we really wanted to invest in—I mean, it’s the most important day (and one of the most expensive!) of one’s life, so wouldn’t you want everything captured on camera?!

Tina was very professional and so easy to get along with—which is SO important with someone who is with you the entire day of your wedding. She made us feel comfortable and didn’t have us do any goofy photos. We were even more comfortable on our wedding day because Tina did an engagement photo session with us, which went spectacularly...they were great photos to use for our save the dates! Everything felt so natural in the moment on our wedding day and it really translated once we got the final photos. Tina and the staff at Artisan Events have been such a joy to work with. Thank you, Tina and Artisan Events, for helping us capture the love and joy that we felt on our wedding day—we will be able to look back and remember that special day forever now!
