My name is Tessa Tillett.

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ball State University with a B.A. in photojournalism and graphic journalism in 2012.

Yes! I am also a designer! Click here to check out my working design and photo portfolio.

I also have a minor in French, not for a particular purpose, I just like learning it. [Click here to see a blog post of my recent trip to France:) ].

I’ve shot 100+ weddings in the last 4 years.

I was an art intern at Indianapolis Monthly magazine a couple summers ago.

I like random trivia. I really enjoy Jeopardy!, trivia nights at local bars, and any other random question-and-answer game, even though I suck at all of them.

I have to be doing two things at once or I’m too bored to focus.

Skiing is my favorite thing to do in the world.

I’m a little kid at heart.

If I weren’t a photographer, I’d probably be a detective. I used to be obsessed with Harriet the Spy as a kid and now love to play Nancy Drew computer games with my sister.

I absolutely love to travel. If you want me for your wedding out of state, I would be more than happy to come shoot it for you;)

Water & coffee are pretty much the only [non-alcoholic] things I ever drink.

My favorite way to exercise is to do an intense obstacle course my sister and I created when we were 8 and 10.

Valerie Keinsley (who took the main photos of me seen on this page) was the one who inspired me to start this business. For that, and so many other reasons, I can’t thank her enough.

I have the best family in the world. They are always there to support me, and I will never be able to thank them enough for everything they have done for me.


 P.S. I will do whatever it takes to get the best shot for you. Really. Here’s a bit of proof;) And this is without having photos of me climbing tree stands, climbing to the top of a grain bin, wading in water barefoot..  :)

Wendy Jenkins - I am inquiring about your availability to photograph my daughter’s wedding 9-21-2013.

Kimberly Lockhart - Hi Tessa!

You came highly recommended by one of my best friends, Sara Ling. After looking at your work on your website I am absolutely blown away. I am getting married on New Years Eve (which is right around the corner) and would be estatic if you would be the photographer. I want someone with your creative talent to capture my special day. With that being said, let me know if you are available!

Elise Leppert - Tessa,

Kristin Wade Brunnemer and I went to high school together. I recently looked through her pictures, and I am amazed at your work. My fiancé and I are getting married this coming summer, June 29. Although I already booked a photographer, I believe my mother and I are willing to switch if you are available. I would love to talk on the phone sometime soon!


Lindsey - Hi Tessa, your work is amazing. I am a model/actress who is looking to have an updated photo library to pull from. I love the style of your shoots. Was hoping to be in contact with you about setting up a portrait session.

Thanks so much,
