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.
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.. :)
