We are so excited you're here! We truly cherish every relationship we cultivate capturing our client's beautiful stories and we can't wait to create with you!

hi there!

Welcome to Tatum Photo and Design! Our idea of photography is a little bit different than what you might be used to in Northern Michigan. We take a non-traditional, editorial approach to portrait and wedding photography, but our results are truly breathtaking (and our clients love us for it).

Our inspiration for weddings comes right out of the pages of Vogue and Vanity Fare. We love bringing a modern fashion flare to weddings while still capturing those beautiful candid moments between our couples and their friends and family. Being invited into a couples wedding day is always such a honor for us. It’s one of the biggest moments of your lives, filled with family and friends from all over, coming to celebrate your love. And we LOVE being a part of that with our couples.

We travel for weddings all over the USA and particularly through the Midwest. It’s common to find us in Chicago, Detroit and Grand Rapids!

Check out our portfolio for images from venues like Castle Farms (Charlevoix, MI), Bay Harbor Yacht Club (Bay Harbor, MI), Bay Harbor Golf Club (Bay Harbor, MI), Visions at Centerpointe (Traverse City, MI), Hagerty Center (Traverse City, MI), Waterview Loft (Detroit, MI), Comstock Park(Grand Rapids, MI), Bluesky Barn (Elmira, MI) and City Flats Hotel (Grand Rapids, MI).

We specialize in the Senior Portrait experience. Our clients want their Senior Portraits to be memorable and we strive to create portraits that really embrace who you are as a person your Senior year. Whether it needs to be fashion forward, artistic or edgy sports, we got you covered. If you have props, people, places or pets in mind, let us know! We offer a variety of collections for our Seniors, including the option for a seasonal collection that provides a mini session for each season!

We also offer family portraiture, headshots (both environmental and studio), product photography, glamour portraiture, sports photography, and boudoir photography.

Please take some time to browse our portfolio and enjoy perusing some of our favorite shots. If you like what you see, we'd love to work with you!
