have a question?

We have Answers!

Do you photograph weddings outside of Virginia?

YES!!! I love traveling! I have photographed weddings in Costa Rica, British Virgin Islands, Jamaica, Dominican Republic, Mexico and domestically I've been to Florida, Georgia, Missouri, Texas and all over Virginia, D.C. and Maryland! We would really love to visit Colorado, Arizona, Montana and Utah for weddings! Those are a few of our goal destinations!!

How many weddings have you photographed?

I started my business back in 2010 while I was studying for my BFA at the Art Institute of Atlanta, and during this time I have photographed almost 400 weddings! You can rest easy, and trust that I will take amazing care of you and your loved ones!

Do we have to have an engagement session?

Yes of course! Engagement sessions are included in every wedding collection I provide, and I think they’re a vital part of the experience I give to you! This high-energy engagement session will leave you feeling pumped, confident, and counting down the days to your wedding. This is precious time for us to get to know one another, and become comfortable with each other! 

Do you always use a second photographer?

Yes I do!! Patrick will be your second photographer!! He always captures what I am not able to during a wedding day! For example, when I am photographing the family portraits, Patrick will be at cocktail hour photographing your guests! Patrick is AWESOME, and he LOVES photographing the Groom and Groomsman on your wedding day! Trust me, your future husband will get along perfectly with him!

Have you always wanted to be a photographer?

My Mother and Grandmother always had a camera in their hands, always posing my brothers and I for photos, for every. single. occasion. HA! After awhile, my love for photography grew, and looking back on the memories these beautiful women captured for us, makes me cherish photography even more. I hope to give that feeling to all of our couples we serve.

Are we going to look and feel awkward?

Absolutely not! I give my couples complete permission to get intimate, cozy, and comfortable in front of the camera. Bring on the PDA, baby! I LOVE to have fun with my couples, and honestly I am truly myself around everyone I meet. I think that helps break the ice a little bit, and it helps everyone I serve feel good and confident! I promise to guide you through this!

"Tara is friendly, organized and professional!!"
