As a professional photographer for over 10 years, I've discovered that my unique approach is to capture stunning, natural-looking imagery that reflects authentic emotions with artistic flair. My secret? Making my clients feel comfortable in front of the camera. There's nothing I love more than crafting beautiful, timeless images that convey real emotions and make use of stunning natural light. It's an absolute dream come true to work as a photographer, and I'm so honored to have the opportunity to capture these special moments for my clients.

So happy you’re here!

I really love connecting with my clients on a personal level and making your photography experience fun and enjoyable is my number one priority.

"she kept our group laughing and having fun the whole time"

"Tara is the absolute best. I can't even put into words how thankful we are that she was our wedding photographer. She made sure our day ran smoothly, she handed out the flower petals I wanted to be thrown during the recessional when she noticed no one had taken them, she let me use her dress as a tissue, she kept our group laughing and having fun the whole time and the times we were taking photos were efficient and enjoyable. That doesn't even cover how beautiful her work is. She was able to capture the day I had been planning since I was a little girl perfectly. I didn't realize how much they would mean to me until I saw them. The photos of our families, the wedding party, the details, and everything in between brought me to tears. I can't thank her enough, and I can't recommend her enough to anyone about to be married. She made it perfect."
