  • Tonya is simply the best! We hired Tonya initially to take our Engagement pictures. She was friendly, responsive, and absolutely devoted to her work. We were so in love with the resulting photos that, when we decided to cancel our Florida wedding and elope in CT instead, we didn't think twice about hiring Tonya to capture our intimate celebration. During our special day, Tonya was a joy to work with. She made us feel special and loved! Bonus: she loves dogs so our puppies got plenty of photo-attention as well :) She captured our celebration and our relationship in their truest colors--playful but passionate, corky but sincere--helping us to relieve the day and our feelings every time we look at the photos. Her work is so beautiful and authentic! We hope to work with her again and again and cannot recommend her more for capturing your special memories!

  • Tonya is absolutely incredible! She did both our engagement and wedding photos and we truly formed such an amazing bond with her. Tonya has a knack for producing really authentic photos and for making everyone feel incredibly comfortable throughout the whole process. I know that we will continue to look back at these photos for many years to come and they are truly the best souvenir of our wedding. Tonya really knows how to capture each couple's essence in such a natural way. I personally don't like super posed photos and she does such an incredible job of not making anything see posed. Her style is so unique and exactly what we were going for! I would recommend her to everyone in a heartbeat!

  • Tonya at Par La Mer Photography has been an absolute gem to work with! For personal reasons, we have to postpone our wedding and then due to COVID-19 we cancelled our wedding. Tonya did an amazing job staying in touch with us to make sure we were still able to take elopement pictures instead of full scale wedding pictures. When I initially reached out to Tonya, we spoke on the phone about how my husband and I met, what I was looking for in pictures, and she spoke about her photography style and it really felt like I was talking to a friend. Even when we took pictures with her, my husband and I thought it was going to be super weird having to pose for someone who is basically staring at us with a camera; our experience with Tonya was the exact opposite!!! She made us feel incredibly comfortable while we were taking pictures and she took a lot of candid pictures in between poses as well. I highly recommend Par La Mer Photography for your photography needs!

  • Working with Tonya was by far one of the very best experiences of our wedding planning. From the very first time we spoke on the phone, you could tell that she would be so easy to get along with. When we met for the first time the morning of the wedding, we felt so comfortable like we had already known her and worked with her before. We felt that she was the perfect combination of laid-back and flexible with discussing our thoughts and ideas for what we wanted, and at the same time extremely professional and confident in working her expertise to get the perfect shot. We had no doubt putting our trust in her to capture the very best moments of our day, that we will look back on for the rest of our lives. Getting married during a pandemic is already a whole other level of stress, and with Tonya there was just ZERO stress about anything. After the wedding, she continued to be great with communicating with us, letting us know when our album would be ready and getting us a sneak peek so... Read more

  • Tonya was absolutely amazing. I am so glad we used Par La Mer for our wedding photography. From our first conversation, Tonya was personable and relatable and just seemed to “get” exactly what we wanted our wedding to be. We had a very DIY wedding and a lot of things weren’t quite standard about it, but Tonya stayed cool and made everything look absolutely stunning. Looking through our wedding photos, it looks like she worked some kind of magic to pull out rich colors and feature little moments that I hadn’t even known were there. The photos make me so happy. She was amazing in helping us work through schedules and plans for photography, and was game for anything we wanted to do - including an engagement shoot in a cemetery and a quick wedding-day boat ride! At one moment during the wedding, when we were trying to get through portraits and I was getting stressed, Tonya checked in with me and helped me calm down - I really appreciate that she was both professional and personal, ...

  • ...or at least our wedding photos! We were hooked up with a bum photographer that was recommended to us. After a confusing/awkward engagement shoot we realized we needed to find another option, and quick! Our wedding was in 2 months. I found Tonya on the Thumbtack site, and immediately I felt at ease. Tonya made us feel comfortable immediately and was incredibly responsive. She knows the Metro Area and Hudson Valley very well, and suggested locations that were easy to get to. She also made the time in her busy schedule to be available for our wedding date. Immediately during our pre-wedding shoot we could see Tonya's professionalism and skill were a game changer for us. Our pre-engagement shoot was amazing, and Tonya really did whatever she needed to do to get the perfect shots. We had so many beautiful photos to choose from. Our wedding is a week away, and I'm so excited for the magic Tonya is going to work. If you're considering her and her work, you really are i... Read more

  • I had read great reviews about Par La Mer so I reached out to Tonya under a bit of a time crunch hoping to have some engagement photos taken. We wanted to take advantage of the fall foliage before it disappeared - and having photos in our neighborhood meant a lot to us because we were soon moving away. She was super responsive- writing back to me immediately and we had our session booked right away. She was prompt (early, even!), super friendly and professional. She was also a trooper to follow us around on a particularly freezing fall day! Her rates are MORE than reasonable and our photos came out beautifully... they were JUST what we had wanted. I even reached out to ask for a particular image in color (it was B&W) and she had it edited and sent back to me instantly. She provided an online gallery filled with over 100 images and we are able to download them which is super convenient. I couldn't recommend her enough!

  • We had our engagement photos done by Tonya last fall. It was freezing, I was sick and got snot all over my fiancé’s face, and we are VERY awkward people who didn’t know how to pose for the natural, candid photos we wanted. We are so lucky we were working with Tonya! Somehow she took our less than ideal situation and gave us a million stunning images that we cherish. She patiently guided us through our photoshoot and had tons of unique ideas that really paid off. I was really impressed by how quickly she responded to my many questions that I emailed her before we met. Her turnaround time with the photos was also extremely fast! Needless to say we are soooo excited to have her shoot our wedding this summer.

  • Tonya is so friendly, professional and talented. She gave us the engagement photos of our dreams for such a reasonable price! Being a grad student, we were on a tight budget. However, we of course still wanted amazing photos for our wedding. From our initial call, to communicating in the time in between, and taking pictures and receiving them - everything was done promptly, correctly, and (most importantly) personalized. When we received our photos only a mere week after taking them, we were thrilled with how beautiful they were! Overall working with Tonya was a delight! I highly recommend!

  • From our very first meeting, Tonya was so full of joy and excitement for her work - we connected with her right away. We knew that we were going to be sharing intimate moments of our day with our photographer as we spent the majority of the day with them so it was important to us that we felt comfortable with them. Tonya has the energy, enthusiasm and patience that you want by your side throughout your wedding day. She joined in on the fun that our friends and family were having, making everyone feel comfortable and excited in front of a camera. The photos came out beautifully and we love to look through them, as do our friends and family who were thrilled that Tonya went out of her way to capture photos of nearly everyone at the event, including numerous candid moments that show the joy and love that was in the air that day. We are looking forward to ordering a wedding album and working with Tonya on that as well!

  • We are beyond pleased with our experience with Par La Mer Photography. Tonya photographed our wedding and looking back I cannot think of a person more fitting to capture our special day. From beginning to end Tonya was exceptionally kind, helpful, patient, and clearly great at what she does. She was easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had. She was able to combine our wants/suggestions with her keen eye for photography and capture incredible photos. It is easy to see Tonya’s passion and enthusiasm for her work. Her ability to be flexible and easy going throughout the whole process was a comfort to us. She tackled every concern and did more than I could have asked for from a wedding photographer. It was a pleasure to work with someone who was so professional, yet effortlessly fit into our special day as if she were one of our close friends. Our guests had so many good things to say about her and we couldn’t agree more. After receiving our photos from Tonya my husba... Read more
