Hey there.


I’m tif and I’m passionately torn between nerding out on science podcasts and watching slo-mo videos of corgi butts. I’ve got way too many pairs of glasses, but always tend to be out of socks.

My husband Jonathan and I are enjoying life and drowning in kids outside of Pittsburgh. (Currently 5, but we’re foster parents and it’s always subject to change) Obviously, I love being overwhelmed by fart jokes on repeat and being a better dancer than anyone under ten in my house. 

My coffee choice is all day, chemex, but I’m not against a Sheetz run.  Moments, movement and emotions are my jam, so lets hang out and make some photos.

    Tif – Nathan Marshall sent some photos of Fun Fore All Miniature Golf. I am profiling this course in my book on miniature golf. I would like to use 4-5 photos, with attribution to you and Hotel Metal Studio. I am self-publishing the book, and am hoping you will agree to let me use these photos with credit and attribution. I can send the ones I’m considering. They are mostly holiday photos.ReplyCancel

    I am planning my wedding for October 28, 2017 and I was curious if you still had that date available. Your photos are absolutely gorgeous! Let me know if you’re available as well as some pricing options.

    Thanks so much. I really appreciate it!

    Hi Tiffany I was recently invited to a wedding which I was unable to attend. I understand that there is a site where I can view pictures of the wedding and would be able to purchase some that I might like. This is the Kaminski – Mateer wedding. If so, how do it get to the site. Thank you for your help.ReplyCancel

    Hi Tiffany!!

    I love Hot Metal Studio photography, so I wanted to reach out and introduce myself! My name is Danielle Scott, I am from Pittsburgh, PA and currently live and work in Washington, D.C. My fiance recently proposed and we are planning for an October 2015 wedding. We are still working on the exact date, however, photography is really important to me so I thought I would reach out and hopefully be able to get a little bit of information regarding your availability and pricing. Would love to meet up in the future, when in Pittsburgh!!

    All the best,



Pittsburgh and elsewhere
