I am Tessa Voccola,

a twenty-one-year-old adventurer from Tennessee.  I’m currently causing a ruckus at Lee University and loving every second of it.  You can usually find me in a funky outfit talking about my obsession with cheese and holding a collection of leaves in my hand.  I’m in love with the cities of Cambridge and Galway, the color yellow, 90s music, Sleeping At Last, and mountain adventures.  My love languages are shoes (yes, shoes) and time and stories made together.  Oh, and quality time.  My family makes my heart sing and I refuse to pass up any chance to dance.  If you think I'm kidding about that last one---I'm not.

I am a storyteller.  Nothing more.  Nothing less.  

And all I want is to capture stories, to hold them in my hands and give the tangible evidence of their happening to you.  Magical ones, heart wrenching ones, small ones.  I want them all.  I hope you want them too.  After all, only photographs and books can hold stories like flypaper.  I hope you'll feel comfortable with letting me close enough to capture yours, because your story deserves to be remembered. 

I love:

//a good book / gut-deep laughter / community / Jesus / dressing up / travel / my family / dance parties / typography / storytellers / autumn //

I dislike:

// inefficiency / tomatoes / being off rhythm / slow wifi / crappy novels //
