About This Vendor

Hi! I'm so glad you're here!

Most days you can find me watching Netflix, reading, or relaxing with my husband, Brett. I love anything related to coffee and travel; put those two together and I’m in heaven.

I have been fascinated with cameras and photography for as long as I can remember. I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to specialize in until  I shot my first wedding under Russell Heeter – seeing true love come alive through photos is what this journey is all about. I want to capture your love story! Love knows no limits, neither do I – I am available to travel anywhere and everywhere to make your day memorable!

I want you to look back at your wedding photos and swoon over all of those memories again!

fun facts:
1. For my whole life, people have always had trouble pronouncing my name (Hjort sounds like Yort!) The name Hjort comes from Scandinavia, and means "deer" in Swedish ; I am incredibly proud of my heritage, so I wanted my unique name to be a part of my business. That's where the antlers come into play! While my mom and I were having in dinner in Stockholm, we saw our last name on the menu - so naturally we had to try it. When in Rome (or Sweden..) I guess!

2. I’m such a romantic – I’m all for boomboxes at windows, practicing dance in the water, and of course, rooting for the underdog!

3. I have read and reread Harry Potter, seen the movies countless times, and I even have a Harry Potter themed tattoo.

4. I have traveled to 4 continents and 20 countries – It’s my goal to go to all 7 continents!

5. I love football! Brett and I usually don’t get along during football season; for some reason he’s a Packers fan… *eyeroll*

6.  I like to consider my bedroom being in a constant state of controlled chaos. It’s usually a mess, but it makes sense to me! While my room may be messy, my closet has to be organized by color – weird, I know!

I first met Tonya when she agreed to take photos for my husband and I's restaurant reception in March 2018: right off the bat, she was easy to get along with, super friendly, and very communicative. Our pictures from the event were amazing; she definitely captured all the big moments, and we loved the posed photos she got of us plus the candids of our guests. She delivered our collection very quickly, plus gave us some awesome sneak peeks a few days after the night. Since we were so happy with Tonya's work the first time around, we were thrilled that she was able to shoot our January 2019 wedding ceremony in New Zealand! Again, all the logistics were easy; Tonya was very helpful suggesting schedule for the day-of. She has a great eye for on-location shots, and our pictures really show off the beautiful venue. The little details of our wedding were captured, too: from the flowers to the guest book, everything is there. Our photos were ready in lightning speed, and everyone we've showed them to has absolutely loved them (including us, of course!) We really couldn't be happier with our experience working with Tonya, and I'd enthusiastically recommend her to anyone searching for a photographer.

I can’t say enough about Tonya doing our wedding photos, she is hands down the best photographer I’ve seen at weddings and been around personally. She is so responsive and gives you exactly what you want. She even goes out of her way to take the most stunning photos. She was also very reasonably priced and you get your photos back so fast it’s incredibly what she is able to do. She did our wedding on September 30th in Mora so she’s willing to travel and is always on time. I can’t even describe how much her doing our wedding meant to us and how stunning the photos turned out.

Tonya's professionalism and attention to detail are outstanding. She has an eye for things that most do not, that takes her talent to a whole different level. Our wedding photos are amazing. She does a great job capturing the emotions and bringing her photos to life. She is a great photographer and we couldn't be happier with how our photos turned out. Would recommend her to anyone!

Tonya beautifully captured the happiness of our wedding, was incredibly easy to work with, and left us with photos we will treasure for the rest of our lives!

Tonya did an absolutely amazing job with my wedding photos! She was a joy to have during the craziness of the day. Quick return on the photos and they are wonderful! We are so thrilled with the memories she captured for us.

Tonya photographed my daughter's wedding, and we just received all of the photos last night. They are simply AMAZING! Thank you for capturing amazing photos that we can cherish forever!

Tonya is amazing. She is so sweet and was willing to accommodate to our every need/request. We had a minor set back during our reception and she didn't hesitate at all to work around the situation for us which was a huge weight off our shoulders at the time! I've received so many compliments on our photos, she really did a great job and made us feel comfortable. We are very happy with Tonya's work, I have been sure to recommend her to other bride-to-bes!

I have no words to describe how grateful I am to you and your camera. I was at ease all day knowing that "Tonya's got this." Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
