Tegan is the best. Seriously. She was our photographer for our engagement photos, boudoir photos, and the wedding and she was fantastic at all of them. I thought I was going to be super awkward during the boudoir shoot and probably told her 90000 times how nervous I was, but she made me feel so comfortable after the first couple minutes that I felt silly for ever feeling a awkward. I think that speaks volumes of her personality. Super easy-going and easy to work with. Any time I had a question, she would respond to my email very quickly and help out with anything that I needed. Jeremiah and Tegan make a great team and you should definitely hire The Paper Elephant for any and all of your photography needs!! The wedding day went so smoothly thanks to their help and our pictures came out absolutely amazing. I relive the wedding day every time I look at them and they were able to capture all of the important moments and small details. Highly recommend Tegan to anyone and everyone!!!

The Paper Elephant is absolutely an amazing vendor and partner to work with! From the very first email we sent her, she didn't treat us like just another number or paycheck, but rather like we had been friends forever. She is calm and soft spoken and full of amazing ideas and recommendations. The candid way she gets shots is unbelievable and the work she produces is breathtaking. She is caring and always sends reminders throughout the wedding process and has amazing ideas for all things wedding related. When she and her husband arrived on our wedding day, they were very professional in everything they did without being stiff. She is prompt with everything she delivers which is appreciated beyond belief. Not only did we get our pictures back two weeks after our wedding but we got a sneak peak the next morning. Hands down, this was worth the investment and we cannot wait to use Tegan again!!! Photography was one of our top must haves on our wedding list and she did not disappoint!

I cannot say enough good things about The Paper Elephant! Tegan was absolutely incredible to work with! She was there for me anytime I had a question or needed advice on anything that came up throughout our wedding planning process. She was always willing to help, and had a lot of great ideas. And her pictures are absolutely incredible! We loved the pictures that we got from our engagement session and our wedding. They are unbelievable! I would HIGHLY recommend booking this photographer for your wedding! I promise it will be the best investment you make!

Tegan is absolutely amazing from start to finish. First, we had contacted her initially when we only had a day left in the Milwaukee area (both of us were out-of-state) and she didn't hesitate to email us back and set-up a quick meeting! We had multiple meetings with her throughout our engagement, and she was always able to work within our schedule since we only had limited time when we were in WI. She's organized, professional, fun and laid back and her photography is gorgeous! From our engagement pictures to our wedding day pictures, they were flawless. Of all the vendors that we worked with throughout the wedding planning process, she is the one person that performed perfectly. We are so glad we chose Tegan (and her husband/assistant, Jeremiah!) and will always be able to remember the best day of our lives through her photography. We wouldn't hesitate to book her again for other big-life moments!

Tegan was so great, and I recommend her to everyone! Our engagement shoot was perfect, and so was the wedding! She was so helpful before the fact (had us make a list of all the groups etc.), and she was so amazing the day of the wedding. Despite us changing the order of everything the day of, she was easy going and kept us on time and in order. Even super pregnant (in a very adorable way) she didn't complain at all about the extensive heat or the bugs. She totally understood our vision, and the photos really reflect that. She helped take our giant family photos without wasting any of the precious reception time. She was always quick to respond to emails, and she was super helpful. A perfect example of just how great she was: she posted almost 50 STUNNING photos from our wedding THE VERY SAME NIGHT! Her husband Jeremiah was her assistant photographer for the night, and the groomsmen really appreciated him. All in all -- it was perfect.

“I wish I could give them 10 stars!! Our engagement photos were awesome and such a wonderful way for us to get comfortable in front of the camera and get to know Tegan. My wedding photos are ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! Tegan came to my rescue and gave me the most wonderful wedding photos! Everyone I have shared my photos with compliment them and she really captured the joy of the day. I have memories that will last a lifetime in those pictures. It’s amazing how I can look at the them and genuinely smile and remember how I was feeling in that moment. Tegan was also able to wrangle my very excitable wedding party and family, which is a task within itself. She got every picture I could have wanted and more. We could not have been more pleased or grateful. Thank you!!”

"Tegan is amazing! She did such a great job with our engagement photos in Madison. We were really worried about looking awkward but she made us feel really comfortable and we had a great time! The photos turned out amazing and I can’t say enough about how talented she is! Our photos turned out so unique and just beautiful. Thank you so much, Tegan!"
"The photos turned out amazing and I can't say enough about how talented she is!"
I found Tegan by pure luck, as I planned my WI wedding from CA. When I first chatted with her for a consultation I knew I’d found someone that I just clicked with and couldn’t wait to being working with her. She met me and my husband in NY for our engagement shoot and the pictures were just phenomenal. She and Jeremiah put you at ease and makes it comfortable and fun. To say that we were excited to see what she’d do with our wedding is an understatement and we were not disappointed. Everyone that sees our pictures is just in awe at her talent. She caught the big obvious moments as well as the small, candid details that I never would have thought of. I really feel that she got “us,” not just pictures of us (if that makes any sense). I feel like I got way more than I paid for working with her. Also, on a more personal level, she’s just the sweetest person. Very personable and funny. I so enjoyed every last moment of working with her. If you’re even remotely debating about working with her, just give her a call. You’ll be glad you did.

I really can’t say enough about how great it is to work with The Paper Elephant. Photography was a big concern of mine, but when I met Tegan I knew I had nothing to worry about. Tegan cares about you. She wants to know who you are as a couple and takes time to learn your style and vision for your wedding and what is most important to you. She will really help you work out a schedule, figure out picture locations, and answer any other wedding questions you might have. She and her husband Jeremiah work so well together that the entirety of our wedding day has been perfectly captured. She goes the extra mile to make sure you are well taken care of. She took the time to learn everyone in our wedding and planned ahead to make sure picture time ran smoothly. For the quality of photos, the best photographers, and the whole package that comes with it, the value is unbeatable. The photos. Beautiful. Stunning. Perfect. The wedding photos turned out better than I could have imagined. She captures everything with style and grace.
"The photos. Beautiful. Stunning. Perfect."
To us, photos were very important not only to capture the smiles & moments, but the true emotions. Tegan & Jeremiah made us feel easy & comfortable right from the get go. They exceeded our expectations time & time again even while working through extreme weather. She jumped right into family photos knowing everyone’s names from our (large & blended) families. She kept us on schedule, and made sure we took a few moments just for us throughout it all. And most of all, she truly captured "us". Our unforgettable day flew by and inevitably so did the fleeting moments, but with our photos we have the ability to relive them. Those butterflies in our stomach, the joyful tears, laughing so hard that it almost hurts, and the speechless special moments where all we could do was grin from ear to ear thinking "holy @%#*, how did we get so lucky!?", even the bloopers. She captured it ALL. Thank you for your friendship, your professionalism, and your commitment to providing us a gift we will treasure for the rest of our lives.
"And most of all, she truly captured us."
Tegan is AMAZING!! She is so easy to work with, always quick to respond to questions and her photography style is absolutely gorgeous!! The photos from our engagement session were better than I could have ever imagined. I cannot stop looking at the sneak peep photos from our wedding and am patiently waiting to see everything from our day! She is patient, makes you feel very comfortable and takes great pride in her work. Her passion and creativity truly shines through all her work. We couldn't be happier with our choice to hire Tegan and The Paper Elephant and will highly recommend her to everyone we know! Tegan, thank you for capturing the love and laughter of our special day!
"She is patient, makes you feel comfortable and takes great pride in her work."
Tegan's work is STUNNING!!!!! She went above and beyond for us in our engagement photos, boudoir session, and on our wedding day!!!! She has so many fun and creative ideas, She fulfilled every single one of our wishes, and captured the exact feel, mood, and moments I was hoping for!!! If I had to do it over again, I'd choose The Paper Elephant 100%. I am ecstatic about our engagement pictures, boudoir photos, and wedding preview pics; I'm dying to see the rest!
"She fulfilled every single one of our wishes, and captured the exact feel, mood, and moments I was hoping for!!!"
I simply can not say enough good things about Tegan and The Paper Elephant. Tegan was amazing and supportive throughout the entire planning process, from our first phone call to her extremely quick turnaround with all of our gorgeous wedding photos. She managed to catch so many beautiful moments at our rehearsal dinner and on our wedding day, and her photos are absolutely stunning. We are so grateful to her (and her assistant, her husband!) for capturing so many memories-- we will cherish them always!

Tegan was nothing short of amazing. She did both out engagement and wedding photos and my husband I were so pleased with them! Our golden retriever puppy was a part of our engagement photos and Tegan did a great job working with her and capturing some really great moments. For our wedding she was able to get a slide show up at our reception to show some pictures that we had taken earlier. Everyone raved about the pictures and I have so many favorites!
"Tegan was nothing short of amazing."
What began as a chance encounter on The Paper Elephant website turned into one of the best decisions we made while planning our wedding. My husband and I have hundreds of beautiful photos that perfectly capture our wedding day, every last detail of it. Tegan is one of the most personable and professional people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. From start to finish, from planning until the second she left for the night on our wedding day, we could not have been in better hands. Tegan's photos and artistic talent speak for themselves--check out her photos and you will know what I am talking about. What particularly impressed my husband and I was her attention to detail and perfect orchestration of her planned itinerary of our day. Tegan makes a point to meet with you multiple times during the months leading up to your wedding--she strives to get to know her clients to deliver a personal experience tailored specifically to your wants and needs. I highly recommend The Paper Elephant. You will not regret your decision!
