Bio & Services

Tammy Blalock
 
I am San Antonio's most unique photographer. I incorporate many aspects of your wedding experience into my collections that many other photographers either charge extra for, or simply, just do not do. For example, I:
  • Deliver printed products on your wedding night (images from the wedding day)
    Produce a same day slideshow to play at your reception (images from the wedding day)
  • Guarantee all digitals within 10 days of wedding
  • Make it a priority to deliver the Italian, handcrafted album within 100 days of wedding
  • Include a second shooter for every client (emphasis, no extra charge)
  • Every collection includes parent albums (choice of 2 or 4)
  • My albums are actual archival-quality, fine art albums from Italy with a limited lifetime guarantee
  • Every wedding gets a custom-designed Snapchat geo filter
  • Sneak peek within 48 hours of wedding
  • Store your digital files in the cloud for 10 years that you have constant access to
  • Always share marketing images with fellow vendors!!
  • Certified (WPPI-C), insured, hold a sales tax permit, operate under an LLC and I am internationally-awarded AND working towards my Master Photographer of WPPI distinction.
  • Will only shoot 20 weddings per year, two per month (with some basic exceptions), and one per week. I am very much a high experience/low volume photographer.

In addition, I have 
been trained by some of the world's very best wedding photographers (Jerry Ghionis, Yervant, Rocco Ancora, Ryan Schembri, Johnson Wee, Keda Z., Salvatore Dimino, Nik Pekridis) and I make it a point to continue and build upon my photography education each year. I have two studios: one in downtown San Antonio, and the other in my hometown of Jourdanton (soon to be completed).

Publications & Features

 
Lastly, I wrote a book targeted directly to brides to help educate them in receiving the best photography experience, products and services possible. In this book, I advocate strongly for using professionals: photographers, wedding planners, hair and makeup artists, and so forth. I also share basically every tip, trick, secret and piece of professional advice I have learned in shooting weddings as it pertains to getting the best images possible to preserve their legacy! (It is Amazon Prime eligible and is also on Barnes & Noble; search for Panoramic Wedding Planning Guide.)
