Portrait photographer, love chaser, and storyteller. I specialize in all things romantic and intimate with a touch of creativity. Watching genuine love connections unfold in front of the lens is what I live for and you can bet that I am hyping you up along the way.

Behind the lens I am living my best mom life of 3 which is an adventure in itself. But if I am able to sneak some time away, I’d probably be at the beach or exploring someplace new all while vibing out on the drive with a boba in hand.

I have started my photography career by taking Anela’s training course and to be a part of her team is really such a dream. In addition to her photography, her dedication to her clients is unmatched and if you are here you are most definitely in the right place.

Assistant based on Maui, Hawaii ready to make your dream day happen!

Hey guys it’s Tehlor! I’ve done photography for over a decade now and am a wedding + portrait photographer! I’m all about letting loose, love to laugh and am all about bringing that energy! Some of my favorite things are spending time with my other half Keej and our pup Boba, snacking on a good smoothie or acai bowl, exploring new places, and catching a good sunset!

Working with Anela is nothing short of an amazing experience and she really does care about each and every one of her clients. Her work is nothing short of top notch! She always does the most to take care of you and isn’t just an amazing photographer, but a great friend.
