Earlier this May, I had lovely morning with Tania Dee, of Verveine Studios. As a female entrepreneur, it’s so beneficial chatting with like-minded, hard working individuals. THORN floral is all about supporting strong willed, hustling women! Who run the world – GIRLS!
I’ve worked with Tania on numerous, gorgeous styled shoots last season. To date, all of our editorial collaborations have been published on established wedding blogs. This day we did something a little different.. Tania shot my little floral shop, which included the women behind THORN floral – myself, Victoria!
With someone as talented & lovely as Tania – I had to learn more about the women behind the lens. Tania let me ask a few questions about herself, her experiences as a professional photographer & Verveine Studios. Scroll below to read our Q & A!

WHO INSPIRES OR MOTIVATES YOU?
I love fashion and portrait photography! I love Sue Bryce for her portrait work and she was actually my mentor when I first started photography. I joined her education classes and studied posing, light and direction with her. I also love Emily Soto’s work, especially the way she edits her images.
WHAT TYPES OF PHOTOGRAPHY DO YOU SHOOT?
I shoot portrait and weddings. There are a few subheadings that fall under the umbrella of portrait that I specialize in. Boudoir is one and the other is Personal branding.
I just love photographing people and couples in love!
WHEN DID YOU BEGIN YOUR CAREER IN PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHY?
My amazing husband surprised me 3 years ago with my first camera!! It’s been an amazing journey! My love for Photography started long before that, when as a hair & makeup artist I used to assist photographers during shoots, holding reflectors and such. I suppose my training in photography started long before I even got my first camera.
WHY DO YOU LOVE PHOTOGRAPHY?
Photography is an art to me and I love to create art through my vision, by capturing authentic expression and moments for my clients. I love watching my clients unfold and show their true self to me in front of my camera.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR COMPANY?
To me my brand is a reflection and an extended version of myself. I want to create a feeling of fun, romantic, natural and editorial images. As well as a great laid back experience for my clients.
