Tara is an amazing photographer and an even more amazing person! Her ability to make us feel comfortable was a core reason why our engagement and wedding pictures turned out so well. Combining that with her talent behind the lens and in editing makes her the best! We had rain on... Read More and off all day on our wedding day, and I was hesitant to take pictures outside. Tara encouraged us to take quite a few photos outside; and I am so glad she did because they are some of our favorites. We had our wedding at the Priory, which has a beautiful organ as a backdrop; she captured the perfect shot of our first dance with that background despite the low lighting. Tara really cares about her clients and wants everyone to have amazing pictures. Hire her and trust her judgement; you won't be disappointed!

I hired Tara based on her reviews on this site, and I'm so happy I did! She was so accommodating and wonderful. And her photos were breathtaking! I usually hate seeing myself in photos but I was so unbelievably happy how they turned out. I can't believe it! I got so many... Read More compliments on how gorgeous our photos turned out and how lucky I was to have such a great photographer to capture the day. On top of that, the pictures didn't look photoshopped or over worked like some wedding photos end up looking, they were just beautiful. Not too cheesy or over the top. Just natural, but better : ) She knew all the right lighting to make the images look romantic, she worked with my bridesmaids and groomsmen to create candid looking shots, and knew all the right angles to make us look our best. I felt comfortable the whole time, and that says a lot since I'm NOT a picture person. And to top it all off, she sent me a personalized wooden keepsake box with printed photos and a matching wooden USB with all the images from the day to showcase my photos. I will cherish that box and my photos for years and years. Such a wonderful experience and I would recommend her for any photography need.
