  • Tracy was great to work with! When we first met Tracy, her personality was what told us she was the right photographer for us. She's very personable, energetic, upbeat, and funny - while also being very down to earth, thoughtful, and genuine. She was extremely responsive not only during the planning process, but she also turned around the full gallery super quickly after our wedding. She met up with us before our wedding to walk around downtown Raleigh and scope out several locations that would work well for pictures. She listened to and incorporated our ideas, and also provided her professional advice and insight. Tracy was absolutely amazing on our wedding day. She was very calm and organized, and had a great method for efficiently working through the list of pictures, coordinating where people needed to be, and keeping everyone smiling! The mix of candid and posed photos was just what we wanted. The quality of and variety of shots was perfect. It was very evident throughout the proc... Read more

  • Tracy Timmester perfectly captured the joy of our wedding day. She was amazing to work with - from pre-wedding communication, to day of timeline planning - and she made our wedding day completely stress-free. She brought so much creativity when scouting out areas for our portraits, and she even came to our rehearsal to familiarize herself with the venue prior to our wedding day. Tracy is truly a joy to spend time with and our pictures are wonderful as a result. We couldn't recommend Tracy more!

  • We hired Tracy for my daughter’s wedding and she was incredible. She and her team were very professional and organized. We were able to get every group picture done very quickly after the wedding. The pictures were amazing! Her timeliness in getting the pictures to us was great also. I would highly recommend her for any and all of your photography needs.

  • Tracy was easily one of my favorite vendors to work with. She is an absolute pro at what she does, and has such a sweet personality that makes everything so smooth. On the big day, she had endless energy and the ability to seem like she was everywhere at once, capturing so many wonderful moments. Her couple portraits of us are absolutely stunning, and I'm having trouble picking my favorite! She is also amazing at capturing interracial couples. So many photographers have difficulty with that and will wash out one spouse to compensate. I am definitely going to hire her again for any other big life moments, and I know she will do an incredible job again.

  • My husband and I are not the most comfortable in front of the camera, but working with Tracy, we quickly got over that! From our first meeting with her, we felt like we had found a photographer we connected with. We did an engagement shoot with her, which I definitely recommend, as you will get to spend time with Tracy, get comfortable in front of the camera, and get some awesome pictures of you and your cutie to boot. On the wedding day, she made us feel so at ease, and we were cracking up! Part of why we picked Tracy is Timmester Photography's candid style, and even the sneak peeks we have gotten so far have shown us some amazing captured memories and emotions. Tracy and her team are incredibly detail oriented and genuinely do not want to miss a single thing. Their enthusiasm is so easy to get caught up in that you stop focusing on the small stuff and get lost in the moment. Their work is beautiful and they so clearly care about the couples they work with - we're so glad they were a ... Read more

  • If you are looking for a wedding photographer, stop what you are doing and choose Timmester Photography. Tracy is AMAZING. She was my favorite vendor to work with. She is so incredibly nice and accommodating. She has several different wedding packages to choose from and will help make a custom package for you if needed. My wedding was in Raleigh, NC but my husband and I live in Greenville, NC. Tracy was nice enough to drive all the way to Greenville from Chapel Hill, on a weeknight, to do our engagement pictures. Even after having to reschedule several times due to weather. It was also sweltering hot and she was able to make my husband and I look like models despite the heat. She also was more than willing to allow our dogs to be a part of the photoshoot! She even made them look like they are well-behaved dog models (they are not). For all of the pictures she has had a super fast turn-around. At the last minute I decided I wanted to have bridal portraits done before the wedding and sh... Read more

  • I just went to recommend Timmester Photography to a friend and realized that I never wrote a review!! How could I?! They are AMAZING. I'm very picky about photography and spent more time finding a photographer than any other vendor, by far. Tracy Timmester is everything I was looking for and more. She is upbeat and friendly and very very skilled in her work. She scouted my venue and portrait location ahead of time since she hadn't shot it before, spending days in the Summer heat finding the best spots for us. She has a ton of energy (I don't know how she does it) and is on top of her game, keeping everyone wrangled and in a good mood. She's also hilarious and even our grumpiest participants were having a good time with her. All that for an affordable price too! I really feel like I lucked out and will use Tracy again anytime I have the chance, no contest. Months after my wedding, I honestly hear more from my wedding party about my photographers (Tracy and Jennifer, our second sho... Read more

  • We chose Tracy for our engagement photos and our wedding. She did an amazing job with our engagement session and the photos all looked amazing! On our wedding day, Tracy came to the venue early to set up and made sure to get all the details photographed early. We really felt like she was able capture our entire day without really being seen. She and her assistant photographer made the process efficient and easy when taking family photos and the wedding party photos. We have loved all the photos so much! The quality that drew us to Tracy as our wedding photographer was her ability and desire to capture special moments in real time without the staging that other photographers might use. We highly recommend Tracy!

  • I am sorry I did not write this review sooner because Tracy is absolutely AMAZING!! Being new to the RDU area my husband and I were super concerned with finding a photographer that wasn't in the way and who constantly made us pose. We wanted someone who captured REAL genuine moments and snuck around as if she were another guest at our wedding and Tracy was that person and she exceeded all of our expectations. Even with the tight schedule between our church portraits, our stop in between and making it to our venue on time she still remained calm, organized, funny and managed to get the BEST pictures. We did not see her once during our reception and started to worry what pictures we would get back... FEAR NOT, she hid and mingled in the middle of the dance floor and got the most amazing pictures of everyone in their true environment. We could not be any happier with using Tracy to document the most important day of our lives. The photos she returned to us were breathtaking and real. To t... Read more

  • Tracy was the best decision we made for our wedding. We wanted to love the candids as much as the portraits and really admired her photo journalistic style as well as her ability to blend into the background. She was super responsive to emails and concerns. She even came to our rehearsal to meet everyone, scope out some locations and put our mind at ease. She was completely unobtrusive during the ceremony and reception. I barely noticed she was there but she captured EVERYTHING. She had a blog post preview for us within less than a week and our entire gallery to us in less than a month. We even got our photos before a friend of mine whose wedding was a full 3 months earlier. Once the wedding is over, having those photos ASAP is amazing. I'm so glad we have a flash drive of all our high resolution photos to keep forever. Our friends and family had rave reviews of her on the day of and after seeing the photos. They commented the following: "Best wedding photos I've ever seen" "The pho... Read more

  • Tracy was our photographer at our wedding in September 2017 and we could not have been happier with her and the photographs she took. She is extremely easy to work with and made us feel at ease during the entire process. She took the time to get to know us and find out what we were looking for and was very flexible, attentive, and thoughtful. She even took the time to attend our rehearsal so that she knew who all of the wedding party was and the plan for the day. Taking photos for hours can be awkward, but Tracy kept us laughing every step of the way and we were absolutely overjoyed with all of the photos she took. She did an excellent job of capturing moments that felt special and candid. Tracy was a pleasure to work with after the wedding as well, retouching and photoshopping photos so that the final result was perfect. We loved working with her and would absolutely recommend her!!!

  • We booked with Tracy late, after deciding on a last-minute change of photographers. And OH MAN, are we glad we did. There are not enough superlatives to describe how happy we are with her work. She was an absolute delight to work with--not only is she a kickass woman that I legit want to be friends with, but from a professional standpoint, she was flexible and open to our requests, prompt and responsive in all communication, was able to keep everyone calm, happy, and smiling during the family portrait sessions, and managed to get an insane amount of coverage of all the events, without ever seeming obtrusive or in the way. And OMG HER PHOTOS. My husband and I keep looking through them and smiling/crying. We fell in love with her photojournalistic style, her amazing eye, and the crisp, clear colors of her photos (my husband and I both HATE the current trend of dark, moody, heavily filtered, instagram-esque wedding photography). She gave us exactly the style we wanted, and more: Her p... Read more

  • Tracy is a phenomenal wedding photographer!! She is extremely talented, organized, and responsive...everything you could ask for in a wedding photographer and more! I am so happy that we went with her and just love our wedding photos! Our photos are absolutely stunning! One thing that stood out to me about Tracy is that she has a real knack for capturing people's emotions, which really lets you to relive the day through the beautiful photos. I just love going through our photos and remembering so many special moments, which are all beautifully captured. Tracy's energetic personality also kept everyone upbeat throughout the day...my mom must have commented a dozen times about what a great photographer she was...and this was all before we could see any of the beautiful photos! As many other reviewers have noted, she is also incredibly organized. She remembered from our first phone call the one shot that my husband wanted to get (which I had totally forgotten), and had tons of hel... Read more
