Hey there! I'm super glad you're here!


Welcome to Tonya Merke Photography. I'm Tonya Merke (rhymes with turkey). I absolutely love photographing the magic that happens between two people in love. It simply makes my heart swell to know that I've been let into your world and trusted to capture these moments that will bring you joy for years to come. When I'm not photographing couples, I can probably be found on my yoga mat. I'm also a 500hr Certified Yoga Instructor and teach occasional classes at friend’s studios. I love to travel and explore new places and I probably feel most at home when I’m in nature. I also love, love, love dogs!! (Well, I love all animals really. But there's something about a dog that gets me every time.) So, anyhoo, if you have a four legged buddy, bring him along!! Thanks again for being here. I can't wait to work together, soon!!
