O H, I N T R O !
Tricia Bridges is the name, and I'm the wife to Rowdy, new mom to sweet baby Oakland, and the owner of a sweet, bouncy border collie named Mali. I'll take my coffee black, please, my wine red and my chocolate dark. Well, actually, just give me the chocolate in any shade. Milk. White. All of it, please. Anyway, I digress...
Here's the deal: Jesus Christ is my savior. He completely shapes the way I run my business, as well as how I relate to and treat my clients. In all things, although imperfectly, I seek to glorify Him. It's because of this that my heart truly desires to know you, earn your trust, and hopefully bring you tons of happiness through this gift He's given me.
(PS. If you caught my Finding Nemo reference up top, I already love you.)

I love natural light. It's a glorious thing. And using it thoughtfully is big. Throughout your wedding and/or sessions, my goal is to provide a beautiful enviroment where real moments and emotions can unfold before me and my lens. Nothing forced or super posed. It's through intentional direction, rather, that we will flow through our time together. We'll be silly and we'll be serious, but my hope is to give you images that will stand the test of time and will reflect your love in it's purest form.

Although being born in Michigan, I was raised in the North Texas suburbs. I'm a former middle school band nerd (where my fellow flute players at?!) and loved volleyball, but eventually grew more interested in web design and photography. After taking a photojournalism class in 11th grade, I ended up on the yearbook staff as a photographer my senior year. But it kind of ended there for a while. It wasn't until years later that I pursued photography as a career.
When I was 16 years old I signed with a local modeling agency. For 7 years I worked solely in the modeling industry for clients such as JCPenney, Dillards, D Magazine, Ariat, and appeared in other local and national magazines and ads. I had incredible opportunities to travel to and work in Osaka, Japan for a few months, as well as NYC and San Francisco. It was an amazing and highly formative season of my life, one I thank the Lord for tremendously. But, in 2011, Jesus saved me. And I fell in love with Him. He changed everything, and while some people are able to stay in the fashion industry and honor Christ, I found myself in too many gray areas, and I just didn't feel I could continue to pursue it. So, after years of wrestling with fear and what to do next, and through a lot of encouragement from those around me, I stepped out of modeling in the spring of 2015 and began to pursue photography full time.

Over the past 5 years I've been honored to serve 60+ couples throughout their engagement and wedding journeys, and have no plans to stop any time soon. This job has become a dream job that I never knew I wanted until I started it. I mean, I get to work for myself, create, travel sometimes, and witness some of peoples most joyous moments of their lives on a regular basis. It's definitely not without it's struggles, stress, and total feelings of failure, like any business and business owner experiences, but it's not a bad gig, not a bad gig at all.
My husband and I are have been married for 5 years and he's the most wonderful human I know. We welcomed our first kiddo, a baby boy, in September 2020, and are soaking up and learning so much in this new season. Coffee is a theme in our lives. We met in a coffee shop, plan dates and trips around craft coffee and shops we want experience, and have dreams to open our own shop one day. We're members of our church and love it dearly. We're more obsessed with our dog Mali more than what is probably considered healthy and are excited about growing our family!

"I am never the first girl to take out a camera to document anything. In fact, I don't usually enjoy taking pictures. Enter Tricia. I met her through a college friend, and followed her on instagram. She truly takes beautiful pictures and I knew I wanted her to be a part of our wedding. I have been blown away with not only the quality of pictures, but the whole experience with Tricia. She was very responsive to any questions I had, and I got a preview wedding album crazy fast after our big day. Choosing your photographer is a huge task, but investing in Tricia is more than worth it.
