We are a Virginia wedding photography Husband and Wife team!! We are dedicated to helping create the best experience for our couples, and giving them joyous memories they can forever hold on to, and pass down as a part of their legacy. You deserve wedding photographers that will go above and beyond for you, to help you capture those in-between moments that happen so quickly, those little moments we don’t even think about, but bring us so much joy looking back on. That is what we will give to you. Patrick and I are so excited to be your wedding photographers! 

My brides love my fun, beauitufl veil portraits!!

Our brides all have a few things in common!! They're all completely obsessed with their Fiancé's, they love traveling and going on adventures, of course they love fashion and dressing up for their engagement sessions, bringing their pups to their weddings, but most of all, our brides are in LOVE with my VEIL SHOTS!! I am so happy to say, these are some of my favorite portraits to do on your wedding day! A cathedral veil helps me create some of the most beautiful wedding images I've ever seen! When I walk in the morning of your wedding  and see a cathedral veil as a part of your details, my heart skips a beat!

We're ready to be YOUR wedding photographers!!

About Tara & Patrick

The Office, and most days we will find ways to sneak in Office jokes throughout the day!

our favorite person:

Our daughter, Addy Bear! She is our only child (SO FAR!) and she’s THE BEST! Seriously! She's one of the funniest, most kind-hearted, loving kids we've ever met, and we adore her! She's AMAZING!

the reason tara became a photographer:

My Mother and Grandma always had a camera in their hands, and passed that love of photography down to me as a young child. 

Our little family loves to:

Go camping, renovate our new HOME, visiting new states, hiking in Shenandoah! We love hanging out at home with our golden-doodles, Murphy and Mae. Most of all, we enjoy those quiet Sundays after church!

My heart and soul lie with the state of Missouri. I was born and raised in a little town in the outskirts of Kansas City.

Patrick. He is everything I never knew I needed. He is the rock in our foundation, and loves us so well.

I love our home here in Virginia, and the beach is my favorite. I moved here after joining the U.S. Navy after high school!
