the experience

Many have described our work as being filled with gorgeous light, vibrant joy and natural elegance! We credit that largely in part to the approach we take when photographing each of our clients unique love stories. We combine our lifestyle approach with thoughtful direction to capture not only our couples but the stunning details they put so much thought into! We strategically look for the best light in every location, only provide our clients with sharp, clear images and work hard to ensure that their experience in front of our camera leaves them feeling nothing less than confidant and beautiful!  At the core of all we do, we desire to capture images that tell a story. A story that has a beginning, middle and end that give your favorite memories a chance to be remembered one more time. We focus on the special people in front of our cameras and capture their emotions, surroundings, and unique relationships as we guide them into poses that make each person feel authentic and comfortable. With every click of our shutter we feel the gravity of documenting the fundamental moments in your life and therefore have committed to ensure that every image we produce strongly reflects your raw affection now and for generations to come! 

Creating beautiful images requires both the client and the photographer to have a genuine connection. So, before we even put our couples in front of our lenses or place a camera in our hands, we make sure we get to know each individual and work hard to ensure that we give each of them a personal atmosphere that is both relaxing, fun and directional.  We strive to create images that authentically represent their own unique love, connection and joyful anticipation for spending a lifetime with each other!  To ensure each couple we photograph feels relaxed, authentic and has fun throughout their session (regardless of their experience in front of a camera ) we take the time to guide each couple into poses that naturally bring out their own confidence allowing us to focus on capturing all the shared intimate looks, feelings and embraces that make their relationship so special and unique to them! Creating movement and natural moments that allow our couples the chance to show who they really are is our main goal in posing our clients and allows us to capture them authentically . 

Our post processing system is simple because we work hard to master each shot taken in camera through the way we manually set our cameras, chose locations and capture light! We love keeping the natural elegance of authentic colors, lighting and clarity in our images and pride ourselves in delivering your a final product to you in a way that is that is both quick and professional in quality!

Every couple has a unique and beautiful love story just waiting to be told and we approach each image like a page in their book. Revealing our deepest passion of authentically curating love stories that tangibly reveal  special memories, timeless feelings and vibrant testimonies of the foundation of a life made beautiful by love in every detail! We believe that your story is worth remembering and that you should never have to regret not authentically preserving every detail of it! We desire to be more than just photographers in your wedding experience because we believe photography is more than just images! It's a real part of your day, life, and legacy! 
We approach each image in a belief that there are moments throughout a wedding day or photo session that should unfold naturally and so we do not interfere with styling them, however we do believe that there is a time and place to give direction, guidance and gorgeously posed images too! A great photography experience to us always goes beyond the actual images leaving behind not only beautifully preserved memories but an experience that enhances and extends the value of every moment you share with us and forever reminds you of what makes your life so beautiful. When we become a part of your wedding experience you are automatically adopted into the TFP family, a family of amazing couples that we can see ourselves being friends with for a lifetime! They are never just clients to us, they are incredible blessings in our lives and we are so thankful for each and every one of them!

Your complementary engagement session will most likely be the first time we will have you  in front of our cameras so we will start slow, explaining how we work and help you get comfortable before the session begins. You will leave the session with great photos and confidence in front of our cameras to go into your wedding day feeling like pros!

There is nothing more special than photographing a couple celebrating a year of marriage! We love capturing the foundational milestones and celebrating a lasting love every time it gains another year!!

From Maternity, Newborn, Family, and Senior sessions, capturing a growing family is truly an honor we cherish greatly! 
These are the moments that fly by so fast and we love that a photograph allows a family to freeze their favorite memories for years to come!

bridals

It's a tradition treasured as an heirloom, handed down from generation to generation and one of our favorite sessions to photograph! A bridal session highlights not only the beautiful glow of the bride-to-be, but it also gives her a tangible memory this special time in the most important dress she will ever wear!

weddings

We believe that wedding photography is more than just hiring someone to take pictures of your wedding day! Wedding photography is a real part of your day, life, legacy and we love being able to carefully and authentically curate moments from your big day that beautifully tell the whole story of your love!

We are proud to offer our clients some of the best albums and prints on the market. Our beautifully handcrafted albums are filled with lay flat pages on thick quality lustre paper. Each album is filled with images that tell the story of their special day and forever remind our clients of the emotions and beauty of their wedding day for generations to come.

Your big day is finally here! It’s time to celebrate, relax and let us get to work! We believe in telling the full story of our couples' wedding days and so we always plan on arriving early and staying late.  A story is not complete with out a beginning, middle and end, right!? This day is going to be an amazing blur to you and so we make it a priority to capture the traditional shots that every couple desires while also capturing the moments in between in a creative & unique way. One of our favorite parts of the wedding day is our portrait time with the newlyweds and getting to meet our couple’s families and best friends!! After the wedding day, you’ll be featured on our blog again as we highlight our favorite moments for all your friends and family to see and help you relieve your special day over and over again!

True Foundation Photography was our chosen photographers for our wedding less than a week ago.. We met with the girls , quite a while back to discuss their services and how they would work along with our wedding needs, wishes and wants. We immediately knew they would be the best photography team for us and our day. Even with those good vibes that day, we could not have imagined how great they would be on THE big day. They arrived on time, just as planned and stated to our wedding venue and immediately began going through our timeline and checklist we had previously talked about and set in place. They were helpful and kind to us as well as our wedding party, family and guests. As with any wedding, there is some stress involved and a lot of movement from place to place, but they handled every move with ease. Their photography skills from placement of us for posing, etc to best photo opp spot is extraordinary. You can see them thinking of what would be best for lighting, angle, and they are sure to do what they think is best before snapping the picture. Having them photograph us was a totally comfortable position, you don't even have to think about it. During my entire wedding, they were quick to jump in without being asked to fix my dress or train, bouquet or prop and even having water on hand when I needed it. Our wedding party sang their praises along with us and we talked about how great they were that day and days after. These ladies truly have a gift for this. It comes easy to them and they make it so easy for you. I know that they take into account how special the photographs are for people and the occasion they are taking them for as it shows with their professionalism, but they are so genuinely gracious, it was a blessing to have them. This review is entirely true. Thankful to have had True Foundation there for us and we hope to have more occasions to work together again!  - Chelsea

Micaela and Meghan are truly talented individuals who work as a complementary team, but the photography is only a portion of the True Foundation Photography experience. When I describe True Foundation as an experience, it is because their thoughtfulness and attention to detail begins months before you ever meet them or shoot the first photo and continues to be evident long after your event has passed. The girls (and their sweet parents) took my bridal portraits and wedding photos, and I couldn't have been more pleased with who I chose to capture my special day. I would highly recommend them (and already have!) as they are the perfect choice for any occasion.
