Tessa and Jen are both respected photographers serving central Minnesota. They own Tessa June Photography and Pebble + Moo, respectively. When Tessa isn't shooting a wedding or a steamy boudoir session, she can be found grabbing a latte and playing with her two mini golden doodles. On days and weekends not dedicated to her kids' activities or shooting/editing, Jen loves to shop and curate new setups!

Happenstance brought Tessa and Jen together in 2020. An immediate synergy materialized their common goals and aspirations for a much needed community rental space for local togs to hold client consultations, sessions and in-person sales meetings.
