About Us
PHUNtography First and foremost, your shoot has to be fun!!! It should be called “PHUNtography.  I’m a professional, but a total goof ball. Every session has to be fun and will be. Why is this so important? The camera never, ever lies. It picks up fear, nervousness, anxiety, stress, worry, bursting into tears, etc. and perminently etches those emotions right into every image created.  So “job number one” is to always get the client to relax, have fun with it, joke with them, make ‘em laugh, and then, we get the perfect images; Perfectly relaxed “real” images of YOU, not the scared “deer in the headlight” look that most new clients start out with. Historic Preservation and Passion I go beyond just taking images into being an advocate of bringing those "blink-of-an-eye moments" to the future view of generations to come. Through capturing unique moments, I’ve done my job of preserving history. I truly live passionately by the quote on the home page, that photography keeps people in the present and moves them into the future. Those moments in time would have instantly evaporated if they weren’t captured in a photograph. “Photographs keep incredible moments from slipping away”. I love that every shoot is different and brings its own set of elements and challenges. Photography is truly like writing a novel with pictures, and each chapter brings new characters and adventures. I love the stories behind each picture I take. With my talent and exceptional perception of people, life and emotion, my finished products always represent the genuine personalities of my clients. Talk about historic I have been happily doing photography for over 30 years. Yes, I’d like to say I started when I was only two years old, so as to not age myself, but, ok yea, that would be a bit of a stretch! There is a WE in I A great photographer and a superb stylist working hand in hand is always the element of perfection! As a husband and wife team, we are always on the same page for impeccable detail and the perfect shot! We have always worked well together on shoots. A “few” years ago, ok yes, quite a few years ago, I had a number of photoshoots with my “not yet wife”who went on to win numerous awards with her headshots and portfolios...but even back then we worked great together creating award winning images. It’s always nice to have a female on a shoot for adjusting hair, clothes, limbs, etc. especially with the new, nervous clients, and to have someone that knows what I’m looking for and shares my vison...Ok, and yes sometimes, I share hers too! Lisa is phenominal working with the clients. Misc. I have won a number of photography awards, including most recently “Thumbtacks’ Best of 2015 Winner for Corporate Headshots”...But, I like to give credit to those clients that took our “goof ball antics”, relaxed enough, and allowed us to take those award winning images...of them! So I thank all of you, for all of the awards I’ve won! Our Rates There are many, many price variables in all the things we shoot. But we are definitely affordable with competative prices especially for what we offer and what we deliver! Just to give you an idea, headshots are $150.00, Senior Pictures are $250 (with TONS of extras included), Modeling Portfolio Sessions begin at only $100 and Family Portraits start at only $150.00, Weddings start at around $1000. All of our packages include lots and lots of extra things, such as print sheets included, CD’s, online password protected galleries, extra time and looks, etc. We will always give you an accurate quote for your session, up front, and NEVER have hidden fee’s or add-ons.
I won't let anyone else photograph my kids, or my niece and nephew for that matter. Tazz's pictures are creative and gorgeous. -Jennifer B. Tazz Anderson is one of my favorite photographers to work with! He is very professional, talented and detail oriented! Him and his wife make a great pair when it comes to shoots. I always feel comfortable and excited when shooting with Tazz. His work is beautiful and keeps me wanting to shoot again! I highly reccommend Tazz Anderson Photography! -Chelsea S.

Tazz did a great job for us. He has a wonderful eye for capturing the personality of his subject(s) and we love the way he composed/framed and lighted/lit his shots. Plus, he was really good at communicating with us during the process, keeping us posted on when the shoot was to occur and when finals would be ready, etc. We definitely would work with Tazz again and hope that becomes a reality. -Neil F (magazine shoot)

Tazz...love the photos! So happy with the results. Thanks for traveling to coastal Carolina for the beach shots we needed. And thanks for the two- day turnaround. We have already ordered the business cards and I'm making the photo changes on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and my blog, etc. Today I'm working on photo changes for my Carteret County MLS site and the promotional materials to promote my business. Thanks again. - Fran P.

I have had the pleasure to work with Tazz Anderson twice now. The quality of his work is excellent. I used his head shots for acting and immediately landed more work. He and his wife are a joy to work with. You are getting much more for the money with these two. Best in the area! -Jordan C
