Kind words


"Theresa has captured many special moments for our family, including our engagement photos and annual holiday photos for the last couple years. She is an absolute joy to work with! Her warm personality really helps to make you feel at ease, and I love her gentle way of giving direction to ensure beautiful captures. She has a wonderful eye for detail, both in shooting and the editing process, and we always end up with so many great photos. I really appreciate her patience in working with our kids, too! The moments Theresa has captured of our family are cherished and will remain on the walls of our home for years to come!"

"We have had the great pleasure of Theresa capturing family, maternity, newborn and our home birth photography. With every session, we have been beyond happy and love how they have all turned out. She has an amazing eye and the ability to capture us in such a beautiful way. She makes us all (husband and children included) feel completely at ease and comfortable. I wouldn't have had a single other person capture the most incredible experience of my life when we welcomed our second son to this world. I LOVE her work and her!!!"

"Theresa has such a natural talent for photography. She has taken the most amazing pictures of my family, and in such a quick amount of time! She has a knack for capturing the most perfect moments. She is professional, friendly, great with kids and has the best prices around. I recommend her often!"

"Amazing. If I were to pick one word to describe Theresa's work, it would be amazing. Anyone can grab a camera and snap a few pictures, but Theresa CAPTURES MOMENTS and freezes them to enjoy and relive anytime you want. Between family pics, newborn pics, and now, more family pics, I've never been disappointed. We love her so much that we will wait for her to come to town to take pictures. She is *that* amazing!  I only wish I knew her when I got married."

"I met Theresa when she did a mommy and me photoshoot for me and my daughter.  She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera.  The photoshoot was so fun, and the pictures turned out better than I imagined. When our second daughter was born, there were no questions who we would call to take our newborn photos.  Words cannot express how thankful I am for the photos she took.  They were absolutely breathtaking. I only have good things to say about Theresa as a photographer, and a person.  She is so talented behind the camera.  She has a way to take a special moment and perfectly capture it so you have it forever.  From day one, she has provided us with professional and excellent service.  Thank you, Theresa for all you have done for my family and me."

"When I found out I was pregnant in 2015, there was no doubt in my mind Theresa would be taking my Maternity photos, and they were everything I could ask for! Theresa is amazing and she makes the session so fun for everyone! She made me feel beautiful in a time where I didn't always feel that way, she made us feel completely comfortable and actually got genuine smiles from my husband and daughter! Her work is undeniably beautiful and I wouldn't have wanted to have the experience with anyone else!"

~Ashley M., Bakersfield CA


"Theresa has a way of making you feel at ease in front of the camera. Although my one year old was running circles around us, I never doubted that Theresa was capturing some great shots for us. She worked with my child rather than against her to capture some great moments. Theresa has an amazing eye for light, composition, and emotion. She is always professional and a joy to be around. We will cherish the images for years to come!"

~Miranda G., Bakersfield CA


"To say Theresa is an amazing and talented photographer would be an absolute understatement! She not only has an incredible eye for capturing the most magical moments, she also has the ability to make you feel so comfortable all while posing and making our children giggle! Her work is beautifully raw, genuine, and authentic! Her work speaks volumes, her editing skills are fantastic, and her sheer heartfelt goal of capturing that picture perfect moment is absolutely incredible!"

~Kelsey R., Bakersfield CA


"Theresa is a DREAM photographer! Not only is she so bubbly and friendly, she has an amazing talent behind the lens!!! I have used her for both family shoots and a personal shoot and both sessions were so easy and creative! She is great at keeping little ones engaged when they would otherwise not be so into the camera and has tons of ideas on how to make photos fun! No awkwardness at all with her behind the camera! She is a BLAST to work with!"

Beyond Expectations

"Theresa's photos are so beyond expectations. I love that she doesn't just take pictures, she captures moments. I’m extremely pleased with how they came out, and I love her style. You are very talented, creative and made my photo shoot fun an easy. Theresa, you have a gift for taking ordinary situations and giving them artistic flair. Thank you so much!"

"Theresa was the unsung hero of my wedding day. My maid of honor had gone MIA and it was time to step into the elevator to head down to my "first-look" session. I don't remember where everyone else was or why I was caught in this odd moment, but what I do remember is that Theresa and I were the only ones in this elevator and I could not have been luckier to have her there. You see, I hadn't met Theresa before my wedding day. She was a second-shooter my photographer had hired to assist him. I think you call that "serendipity." Right away though I could see she sparkled; it's not something a dazzling person can hide too well. But when that elevator stopped several floors above the lobby and we were faced with a couple and their tiny dog, I panicked thinking, "WHAT IF THIS DOG PEES ON MY DRESS?!" I know the odds were slim, but brides are allowed to freak out irrationally, right? But that's when I heard a voice behind me, a voice from the woman who was holding my train as well as her camera, a sweet voice saying to this couple, "Would you mind taking the next elevator?" They must have put two and two together; freaked out bride, dog around the dress... They graciously obliged and we continued down to the lobby where I had my flawless first-look. Theresa's attention to detail and radiating sparkle are just two of the qualities that put her at the top of my list of photographers. However, what really makes her the best choice is her ability to capture genuine beauty and send it back to you in the form of gorgeous photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime. Thank you, Theresa. You are truly a diamond."

"Theresa was the perfect choice for our wedding photographer. Not only did she capture the memories beautifully, she was organized, efficient, and brought a fun, positive and energetic vibe to the day. She was thoughtful, helpful and with a wedding party of 22 people, she miraculously got all the pictures I wanted while still having fun with the group. 
The images she captured are so beautiful, brands have featured them on their own pages (Stone Cold Fox, Watters, Etc). It is so fun to relive the day with such incredible images, I'm so glad to have found Theresa Wooner Photography and highly recommend booking her for any event that you want beautiful memories from. I'll be using her in the future!"

Thank You, Theresa
