the "tr" wedding experience

The happiness and joy you'll feel on your wedding day will be so overwhelming and unlike anything you have ever experienced in your life. My clients always say their wedding day is the best day of their life, and I agree with them! This joy will be expressed in a myriad of ways- through the warm hugs from family you haven’t seen in awhile, from those joyful grins, and tears of happiness as you read the sweet love letter your groom gives you on the wedding morning. It's a joy that deserves to be documented in a genuine way so that these memories can be shared with the generations to come. Because one day, you're going to want to show your children and their children the beautiful legacy on which their family was built. You're going to want these moments forever captured and frozen in time.

My responsibilities as your photographer stretch far beyond capturing beautiful images on your wedding day.

 I strive to make your wedding experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible from the moment you book to the final delivery of your custom linen album. Take a peek into the"TR Wedding Experience" below:

I don’t believe that wedding photography is one-size-fits-all! I know that TR Brides are unique and I do my very best to find them! I serve a very specific type of bride who recognizes that if she wants classic, joyful portraits of her and her handsome husband, then she needs more than just pretty pictures. She needs an amazing EXPERIENCE! The first step towards working with me is determining if we are the perfect fit for you! A TR Bride is a special kind of bride, and I work very hard to find her! It's of utmost importance to me that I connect with my couples, which is why only if I feel like we will be a good fit, will I agree to be the photographer with you on your wedding day. Because honestly, you don't deserve anything less.  After getting to know you, we’ll determine if we’re a match made in heaven and then we’ll move on to the booking process! Once you submit your inquiry, I will send over my Tierney Riggs Photography Pricing Guide with all of the details you need to know about pricing and package options. Once we decide you were meant to be a TR bride, I'll send over an online booking proposal. Once that is signed and your retainer is paid, we're officially official!

So now that we're all booked, we will go ahead and schedule your engagement session!  This session will last an hour and can be held at a location of your choice. If you need location suggestion, I got you! Don't be nervous because I will help you with everything! From what to wear to how to pose, I will have you and your fiancé covered! The engagement session gives us all a chance to get to know one another so that by the time your wedding day rolls around, we are super comfortable with each other! After your engagement session, you will be featured on the TR Blog, and you will receive your images back in an online gallery.


Once your wedding is about 8 weeks away, we will start to prepare for your big day! We will work on customizing a timeline for your day so that you can get all those dreamy couples pictures, fun bridal party shots, and beautiful details all captured for you. We will set up a time to chat on the phone so I can help plan your timeline ,then I will email you a customized copy as well!




Yayyyy! It is finally here---your wedding day!! It's now officially time for you to celebrate and relax. I'll take it from here! This day will be a blur to ya'll so I will get to work immediately capturing the details. As you are getting ready, I will let the moments unfold and happen candidly for sure, but there will be times where I will lead and you so that we can get the best possible lighting. This will be my approach the entire day!



You can expect to receive your finished gallery approximately six weeks following your wedding day. Before that 6 weeks is up, I will share sneak peeks on social media, and will also have a blog post of your wedding with the highlights from your day that you can share with friends and family! Your beautifully displayed online gallery is where you are able to download, share, and print all of the high-resolution digital files. You will also receive the printing rights as well!  If you chose to order an album, we will now begin the design process!


the "tr couple"

  • Although they are looking forward to their wedding, they are far more excited about their marriage!

  • They are joyful and romantic! Their love is passionate much like that of Allie and Noah’s from the Notebook!

  •  Even if they weren't born and raised here, they love the charm and culture of the South. They're firm believers in Southern hospitality and can't wait to graciously welcome friends and family to their celebration.

  •  They are well-traveled. They love to experience other tastes, sights, and cultures, but when it comes down to it they know there is no place like home.

  • They love to have fun! They can’t wait to bust out their stellar dance moves, and dance the night away with their family and friends at their wedding reception! 



I believe that your story is worth investing in. Some things in life are meant to be preserved for all of time. Your story is one of them. That is why I capture your story in a way that is sweet, joyful, and classic. I believe your story deserves to be passed on to your grandchildren and great grandchildren. Your story was made to not only be preserved, but to be preserved beautifully.

I strive to provide the BEST  experience for my couples so I only accept 15-20 weddings per year, so I'd love to meet to hear more about your love story and wedding! 

Wedding collections currently start at $2300 and include a complimentary engagement session, a second shooter, and the high-resolution digital negatives from the wedding day.   If you feel like you and your fiance are the perfect "TR Couple" then click the button below so we can chat (preferably over a cup of coffee or sweet tea!)
