We loved working with Tim Halberg for our wedding! He was fun, friendly, and easy to work with right from the start. This was super important as we were not only working with a professional, but someone that we could relate to like a good friend. This made us much more comfortable on the wedding day too! Our photos turned out beautifully -- he captured both the biggest and smallest moments, making guests comfortable and having fun, while also being discreet when it mattered. Would definitely recommend anyone to work with Tim! - Justin
Capture the wedding day moments that matter most
I went to school for commercial photography and earned a BA perfecting my techniques for lighting and photography. I was taught sooo much technical information that the art form of things was nearly lost. But then one day a wedding photographer came to speak at our school (Mike Colon), and my friends and I went to heckle him. At a commercial photography school, wedding photographers were considered to have come up short on photographer career goals. So, walking into the talk I was ready to fire away as a cocky/arrogant college student who knew better than this man.
Halfway through his talk, I saw how he was able to create emotional and meaningful photography for his clients, how much joy it brought him and his couples, and how everything I’d learned from commercial photography could be brought to the table AND be combined for my extrovert LOVE for being around people. By the end of the talk, I looked at my roommate and said, “I think I’m gonna be a wedding photographer.” My roommate immediately told me I’d officially wasted my education. I never looked back. I’d found a new freedom in my photography and my creativity that only wedding photography allows.
Then I hired a business mentor, and he pushed me to focus my wedding photography on things that I personally am “passionate” about - that word gets thrown around a lot in this industry. My mentor told me what I am truly passionate about would be something that someone could and would claim in their own business NOT to stand for. We spent 6 months with him poking and prodding at me, nuancing and exploring - and after half a year of self reflection, I came out the other side knowing what truly drives me as a human being and what I’m looking for in couples who are a good fit for me - Active. Adventurous. Mischievous.

How I work
Wedding Photography Experience
I love emails, but even better, let's hop on the phone and chat. More often than not, this gives you a feel if I would be a good fit, and I can get you more detailed answers on pricing - PLUS - my photography emerges from getting to know you two, so this is the first step in EPIC photos.
After your consultation and booking with me, I'd love to do a few planning calls - talk timeline, find out about your wedding's "red dot" (ask me, it's a thing, and I don't know any other photographers who have figured it out) From these calls, we'll figure out how to make BADASS wedding photos JUST FOR YOU!
I normally arrive early to begin scouting - to check if there is anything for the day I need to adjust to on the fly and just get into the moment and mentally prepared to create meaningful photography for you. After the wedding, I will deliver a sneak peak of my favorites photos within five days.
Gallery & Products
The last step is delivery. I'm a HUGE believer in artwork - be that wall art, or wedding books - when you see your photos in print, they truly come to life. Yes, you'll get the high res files, and an online gallery - you can share away on instagram and facebook (credit please!!) but let's make your photos live somewhere and not die online.
Tim photographed our wedding in Sonoma and he was fantastic! He captured so many amazing candid shots that were very special. Looking through the pictures he really told a story. I felt that the wall art was a must and I never tire of looking at our beautiful photos on the dining room wall. He has a great personality, he’s very witty and we highly recommend him! - Laura
badass wedding photos
I will take the time to connect with you both before your wedding to learn what is true to you as a couple, about important relationships that may be present for the day and ultimately giving me the biggest “cheat” to knock your photos out of the park.
Coverage options range from $1,900 to $30,000+ depending on the date, number of hours/days needed, number of guests, location/travel and artwork delivered.
