Tamara Wickstrom Photography


Tamara Wickstrom is a Wedding, Family and Senior Portraits Photographer based on the Central Coast of California.

We don’t make a photograph just with a camera, we bring to the act of photography all the books we have read, the movies we have seen, the music we have heard, the people we have loved.
— Ansel Adams



It’s difficult to truly introduce myself through a few paragraphs on a computer screen. You have no idea what my voice sounds like, and you can’t see that I use my hands a lot when I talk. What I can share is that I love capturing the real moments of your life, so you can hold onto them forever.

The touch of my daughter’s little hand in mine. The sound of my grandmother’s laugh. The taste of my 50th birthday cake. The smell of an English rose garden. The view from the ocean bluffs along the Big Sur coast. To me a photograph is a dynamic time capsule of an exact moment in time. A time capsule that can be opened up, and looked at, whenever you want. My goal, as an artist, is to deliver images that will bring you right back to the most special moments of your life.  Images are memories - let's create some together.


About My Training:

In order for me to capture genuine and natural expressions, my clients must be having genuine and natural moments. I am trained and certified in a technique called Moment Design, which enables me to create a stress-free, photo shoot experience… whether it’s a couple giggling over a first date story, or a family running arm-in-arm trying to say a tongue twister in unison… Moment Design is all about creating an environment from which your best moments can shine.
