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 90 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.)

Education & Experience

WPPI-C, (Certified Professional Photographer Designation) WPPI, 2018

AAS-Legal Assisting, San Antonio College, 1996

I have been a professional photographer since 2010 and specialize in high school seniors and weddings only. However, I also often shoot high school sports. I feel shooting sports is the equivalent of "the gym" for shooting weddings.
