Vendor Spotlight: Tiffany Schoepp, Wedding Photographer


Tiffany Schoepp became a photographer by doing coincidental groundwork before actually picking up a camera. “I was studying drawing and painting while working in a black and white dark room as printer for a portrait photographer before I ever learned how to shoot,” she tells us. Midway into her drawing studies, she delved deep into painting, becoming influenced by David Park and Elmer Bischoff. It was during this time she picked up a camera with the intention of using it as a tool to create images to paint from and discovered the immediacy the camera gave her. Her love of photography was born. And her love of art and painting is evident in her work, as they are clear inspirations for the way she shoots and records moments.
“People endlessly fascinate me,” she tells us when we ask what she enjoys about shooting weddings. “I have always been in tune with people’s emotions and body language and after ten years of being a professional photographer, the camera has become an extension of my body for recording these observations. To be a good wedding photographer you have to expend huge amounts of energy opening yourself up to what everyone around you is experiencing and capture these expressions as they are happening. When I put myself in this emotionally–visually reactive state, I find myself framing and composing images whose narratives I can only comprehend when I take them home and study them as still photographs. It’s a very personal process for which I am committed to.” And that pretty much sums up why we think Tiffany is worth sharing with the Bridebound world.

  5. Tiffany did an amazing job for our wedding photos. She's very down to earth and always willing to go above and beyond. A true professional and my husband and I have loved working with her. Tiffany also photographed our son when he was just 5 months old and my son could not take his eyes off her or the camera. We have many pictures around our home and we always get plenty of compliments. Thank you Tiffany!
