your wedding experience

My husband, Patrick and I are SO excited to be there with you both on your wedding day! We LOVE helping our couples feel their absolute BEST on their wedding days, its one of our favorite things! We care so deeply about capturing the perfect memories for you, and your sweet families! We recognize how important this day is for you and your loved ones, and we will continue to pour our heart and soul into what we do!
When our couples invite us to photograph their special day, they rest assured knowing they not only have a husband and wife wedding photography team taking care of them, they know they just gained two new lifelong friends, who will always be there for them! We take our relationships with our couples very seriously, and if you're ready to celebrate with us, we are SO excited to hear from you!! 

Our couples believe in love, they believe in marriage and what it stands for. They believe in building beautiful lives together. They believe in the hands they choose to promise their whole world to, and that is something that is so beautiful....

You’re engaged!

From Engagement to Your Final Images

The Process

CONGRATULATIONS, love! This is really an exciting time for you! I cant wait to chat with you about your wedding plans, and learn more about you and your fiancé! Once you decide I'm your girl, we sign a contract and begin this fun journey together!


Engagement session

I think love is a pretty big deal and it deserves to be captured in a tasteful, yet fun and memorable way, so that's what I do. I tag along while you and your sweetie are hangin' out, and having a blast. You’ll fall in love all over again, and when you see your finished gallery, you will be amazed at just how great you guys were in front of the camera! 


let's plan your day!

We will be with you the entire step of the way during your wedding planning process. I will help you with whatever task you need! Timelines, outfits, location ideas and researching, anything! I’m your girl! Two weeks out from your wedding, we will go over your Bride and Groom questionnaire together to go over ALL details of the wedding. During this time, you have the opportunity to ask any questions you have! I will make sure you are just as prepared as I am for the big day!



Its finally here! The day you’ve dreamed about forever! This is where you sit back, relax, and enjoy the day you and your fiancé have worked SO hard for! This is it! 


finished gallery

After the wedding, you will receive your finished wedding gallery! A few months after the wedding, you will receive your final “thank you package” from me that will include a special gift from me, and your wedding day flashdrive!

"Tara was by far one of the best decisions we made!"

Working with her was so easy and her work is absolutely phenomenal. I know I walked away with a great friend, and I cannot wait to work with her for future life milestones.
