A bit about us…
Our names are Tess Mayer & Julia Wang and we are photography duo based in NYC. We met our freshman year at NYU Tisch and since then have run a magazine together, worked as teaching assistants at ICP & NYU, and shot our first wedding our senior year.
Our style is a blend of candid documentary and stylized portraiture - we approach your day not as strangers following you around, but as excited guests (who happen to be carrying around cameras and massive lenses) who will most likely cry during your vows.

"My husband and I are so happy to have worked with Tess and Julia for our wedding. We felt like they went above and beyond our expectations. They took the time to meet with us beforehand to get a sense of our vision for the wedding. This really helped to put my mind at ease. On the day of the wedding they had so many great ideas and really took charge during our portrait session. Everything felt effortless on our part and the photos are FABULOUS!! They really captured the vibe of our big day and our guests are still raving about the photos. Tess and Julia are outstanding and truly talented. Thank you both for your positivity, professionalism, and for making us look gorgeous on our big day :)"

"We got very lucky when we found Julia and Tess - both very talented photographers, they agreed to come out to document the best day of our lives, even though they were only a week or so away from graduating from NYU. They did a wonderful job capturing everything from the biggest moments to the smallest details, along with a couple of awesome candids along the way."
"Tess and Julia, our wedding photographers who listened patiently to everything we hoped the day would include, and then did an incredible job taking pictures of every moment: from church, to garden, to reception, they were professional, unintrusive when it called for it, and best of all, lovely and fun."

“Tess & Julia are literally the BEST!! They photographed my brother's wedding and that is when I first fell in love with their work. Therefore, when I got engaged a year later, I knew I had to have them photograph my wedding. I have been a part of many weddings and I can say for certain that nobody captures the moment quite like Tess & Julia. Every time we look at our photos we feel like we are back at our wedding day and get to relive our happiness through their work. I cannot say enough about how professional they were but also how fun they made our day (and calmed us down the months before our wedding- answering any questions we may have had immediately). If you truly want the best photographers to capture your perfect day, you will pick Tess & Julia and you won't regret it!”
