Thank you for stopping by.
Truly defining YOU and your business is a critical first step. Without understanding who you are, and who you serve any other plans are truly futile. You will need to do the hard work first. Do not try and skip this step! I promise you, coming from experience, doing the hard work saves you both time and money! Not to mention, doing the hard work first only happens once. Then it is a cake walk of clarity!

What I have found in my twenty-five plus years of experience in the photography business is that, many times entrepreneurs believe they can just show up, get in front of the lens and then take that one head-shot and put it on their website, social media, a marketing flyer, business card ... everywhere.
This is a missed opportunity. Quick, fast and yesterday are not useful words to pair with the word Branding. It requires patience, planning and thoughtfulness. Without this, you will not show up representing your brand. Honestly, it’s all about your brand.
Before you can start building your brand experience for your clients, you need to take the fundamental first steps to define the kind of brand you want to be. Think through who you are, what you love to do and what your core values are. Equally important is deciding what type of culture you want to create in your business.
You need a very well-crafted statement of the type of business you are. What type of clients do you serve? How you will serve them with excellence? You have to define what you stand for, what sets you apart and the types of products, services and experience that your clients can expect from you.
At first glance, defining your brand may seem easy, yet it takes research, decision making and some soul searching. For example: You are a photographer. It's pretty easy to define that brand -- a person who take photographs, right? Yet to build a brand around that business, a photographer needs to determine specifically what kind of photography they focus on and who their ideal clients is before any level of marketing can begin.
If you are ready, I bring your brand to life. I ensure your passion, style and location represents your brand, and also showcases your essence. It will encapsulate you like a warm hug. This is an enjoyable process because I walk beside you, offering encouragement and direction by asking powerful questions.
Let’s take a journey together to identify your brand and what you want to achieve. Together we can create the best ideas to bring your brand to life. We will create your brand so your audience will crave you and KNOW they need to work with you.
Just a note of thanks. You showed up on time, ready to go, and had ideas flowing so easily for my photo shoot. You made it fun, relaxed and even shared a few photos as we went about the session. I can't thank you enough for making my vision and your artistry come to life!Kim Dalzell
My experience with Turpenoff Photography was PHENOMENAL! I am typically self conscious in front of a camera. Tricia made me feel SO comfortable. I was blown away with how true and fun the results of our photo shoot were. The images she captured we extremely artful, genuine, and beautifully lit. I was impressed with her knowledge of photography and how to capture not only my essence but how to utilize the light and our surroundings. I will ALWAYS have Tricia take my photographs. She is professional, artistic, knowledgeable, gentle, fun and I believe she is anointed behind a camera!Betsy Clark
I started receiving brochures for senior portraits for my daughter the summer before her junior year, a year earlier than expected. I would glance at them and then into the trash they would go…except for one. When I opened Tricia’s brochure, I was moved. These photos were unlike any of the others I had seen. These were so natural and seemed to really capture each individual for who they truly were.
I kept that brochure for a year and when the time came to schedule Amber’s senior pictures, I called Tricia. After the three of us met, we knew we needed to look no further for a photographer. Tricia talked with Amber about her interests and gave her many options on locations for her photos. Amber chose a location we would have never thought of and it was perfect for her.
A few years later when it was my son James’ time for portraits, we once again called Tricia. His were equally wonderful and totally “him”. I never hesitate to recommend Tricia to anyone looking for a photographer, no matter the event or portrait they need. She is the best!Allison
You can't believe how many compliments I'm getting on the photos you did for me! Thank you for your attention to detail and for capturing ME!Donna Galassi
We used Tricia first for my senior photos, and she did a great job with those - fun, easy to work with, made things enjoyable when I'm not usually happy having my picture taking. Using her for our wedding photos was the easiest choice we made for our wedding, and we weren't disappointed. She was fun and easy to work with, took a ton of photos, and managed to get shots of everything we wanted without being intrusive or causing any issues whatsoever. Post-wedding she was great as well, staying for the bulk of the party, taking more awesome photos, getting a ton of cool angles... I would recommend her to anyone who asked. Worth every penny.David T
Professional and excellent photographer! Tricia shot our engagement photos in Vail where we got engaged, and she was so excellent. We incorporated our golden retriever, Ella in our photos, and Tricia was so patient and good with her. Our engagement photos are absolutely gorgeous!! For our wedding, we flew Trisha and her second shooter to North Dakota, and she was so amazing. We got married on the campus that we met at, and Trisha captured so much of our lives when we first got together. Our wedding photos are absolutely amazing, and we get compliments constantly on them. We created a "Facebook" of our bridal party for Tricia to know the members of our bridal party, and she knew every person in our wedding party by name; amazing! Such a wonderful, personal touch. We will be using Tricia for photos in the future, for she was one of the best photographers we've ever worked with!Jenny W
Tricia and her team are amazing. Our engagement pics were taken at Red Rocks, and Tricia did a great job handling us, our bikes and dogs! What a wonderful experience. Our wedding was photographed beautifully and I can't thank Tricia enough for her responsiveness and her artistic style. She is everything you are looking for in a photographer - creative, supportive, easy to work with, and keeps to the schedule.Diane H
