Beautiful Soul, Beautiful Photographer!!
We found Tara through social media, and she played such an instrumental part in the beauty that was our wedding day. We had an amazing time shooting our engagement photos with her, and even though it was...
our first meeting, she made us feel instantly comfortable. She has a way of helping you to only focus on your partner, inciting conversations and phrases with one another, and then capturing a true feeling or genuine moment. She was always very open to communication, and asked questions about what we liked and didn't like. Our wedding day expectations were super high! Tara met us in Costa Rica and she brought her beautiful energy and spirit along with her. She captured the truly priceless moments, many of us crying. laughing, and of enjoying the small moments together. If you want to see emotion, she is your gal!! She did great with our many scene changes, from venue to beach to dance floor, and works very quickly. She did an excellent job with the low light photography on the dance floor, and even indulged us with a special shoot on our own. Thank you so much Tara, you have made these unforgettable moments now immortalized, and we are so thankful to have met you in so many ways. <3

A great photographer was our highest priority when planning our wedding, and as soon as we saw Tara's work we knew we'd found exactly what we were looking for. Not only is her work gorgeous though, she creates such a wonderful environment even ...
for two photo shy brides. We loved that an engagement session came included with our package, because we got to develop a relationship with Tara beforehand. We've never felt so safe in front of camera, even though the moments she's capturing are very intimate. She was the perfect person for us to have around on such an important day, and the photos she captured are unreal and so beautiful. We love her and her work so much.

her and I knew then that I had to have Tara shoot my wedding one day. From the engagement photos to our wedding, everything is so beautiful. She made everything feel effortless and really showed our love in every photo. We got our preview photos and it took my breathe away. She is also so much fun, she taught me how to do the wobble on our dance floor! We had such a blast at the wedding and her work is spectacular. You will want to hire Tara because she was the best money I spent on anything at my wedding! She was beyond perfect!

We were on a bit of a time crunch when we were planning for our wedding back in July. Tara was able to fit us in and we are forever grateful! Tara has not only a great eye, but she's also an amazing person. She really got to know us as a couple...
through the engagement photos, which gave her a sense of what we wanted and how my husband and I interact with one another while being photographed (we're totally awkward lol). She made being photographed fun and made us laugh and feel comfortable which was really important. She asked us to answer questions while being photographed and reminded us of why we were doing this in the first place. Our wedding photos are gorgeous. Her use of natural light is one of the biggest reasons we wanted her to photograph our wedding and she did not disappoint! Thank you Tara!!

Tara’s talent and eye for photography is second to none. She made our wedding day, and even our engagement shots, so comfortable and so intimate! Her shots are beyond stunning, and bring our wedding day back to life every time I look at them (m...
ultiple times an hour!). Tara makes her sessions and wedding day photography so comfortable, and fun while she constantly reminds you why you and your love are sharing these moments. In all of wedding planning, her photography sessions were my favorite (especially the day of!!) because it is so easy during wedding planning to get overwhelmed, but the way Tara runs her shoots makes it all about you, your fiancée, and the reason your love made all of this possible in the first place.

I can't imagine my wedding without Tara as our photographer. Every time I post one of our incredible wedding or engagement photos to my social media accounts, I receive so many compliments on how unbelievably talented she is. Tara was incredibl...
e for many reasons.
1. She took time to learn about us as a couple, asking us to take a quiz to learn our love languages and asking pointed questions about our dynamic and relationship. This helped her to take photos that really represented us in our real life.
2. She was quick to respond to any questions or updates that we had, so I was able to mark things off of my to do list quickly.
3. She uses lighting in an AMAZING way, capturing an already gorgeous scene in a way that I didn’t even see before the photos came out.
4. She focuses on LGBTQ couples, making us feel comfortable during what feels like a vulnerable state (being very out in public while taking photos with your partner).
5. Tara got our sneak peek to us extremely quickly, and followed up soon after with the rest of the photos.
I can’t recommend her enough. Her business and her clients are her top priority, and in my opinion, she truly is the best in the game. We will cherish these photos forever.

ease and gave amazing direction. Also, she is fun, enthusiastic, and adventurous, which truly took our photos to the next level. We ended up in the middle of a cornfield on our wedding day, and absolutely loved it! She is also incredibly fast and responsive - we received our engagement photos and our wedding preview photos about 2 days after the photo sessions, and each and every photo was a work of art. We are just grateful that we found her before she got too famous!!! :-)

dibly competitive. From the moment we met her to talk about her style and our needs, to our engagement shoot, to our wedding day, to our post-wedding correspondence, Tara has been nothing but wonderful, helpful, and eager to make sure we were really happy with everything. As a lesbian couple, we were anxious to find a photographer who we could really be comfortable - Tara is that and more. On the day of the wedding, Tara not only took amazing photographs - she went to great lengths to ensure that we had a wonderful experience, stepping in at just the right moment to whisk us outside (and away from some family members) for some evening shots. She was also no-nonsense with the list of family shots that needed to be taken, working through the list efficiently and giving family members no room to interfere - something that I had not realized we needed until that moment. BOOK TARA. NOW.

ther and the city of Philadelphia effortless. She was incredibly gracious and warm before, during, and after the wedding. When we had only a few requests for photo locations, Tara Beth was ready with many excellent suggestions. We visited places I would not have considered, and am thrilled that she did. Her easy-going personality and sense of humor put both of us at ease in all locations, and our photographs reflect that. I am typically uncomfortable getting my picture taken, but the photographs that she took show none of my fear or discomfort. In fact, they visually reflect the wonder and joy of our love in a way that I didn’t think was possible. When I look at them now, I re-experience all of the happiness and joy of the day, and I am so grateful. Thank you, Tara Beth. You are an artist and an angel!

Tara is such a sweet person, she is very easy to get along with & she really puts you at ease when you're in front of the lens. She makes your engagement & wedding day photos a fun experience. She has a keen eye for detail, she is very talented at taking beautiful & creative photos & was great at dealing with our rowdy groomsmen! She has the patience of a saint is all I can say haha.
Not only has Tara photographed our wedding, but I also had her shoot my nephew for his birth announcement photos. Not only did she take amazing staged shots, but she also captured the really sweet moments between my sister & brother-in-law with their new baby.
I have to say, that is one of her great talents in her work. She catches you at the best moments when you don't even know she's there. Everything looks very natural in her photos. If you choose this wonderful lady, you will not be disappointed. I highly recommend her as your wedding photographer.

ade me feel comfortable from the start.” From start to finish, she was a genuine pleasure to work with and a total professional. When shooting our Engagement photos, my husband and I were kind of clueless about what we wanted to do, and Tara was the perfect coach. When she shot our Wedding, she provided some much needed structure to an otherwise chaotic day, especially that morning at the hotel with me and the bridesmaids. She was the coolest head in the room, and I was so grateful! Plus, she is open-minded and super creative. If she asks you “Are you feeling adventurous?” Say yes, and trust her. You’ll end up with something beautiful and unique.
On top of receiving drop dead gorgeous representations of our Engagement and Wedding, and also Tara being an awesome human, the timeframe in which we received our photos is unheard of. The quick turnaround was an amazing surprise. Two days after our wedding, she posted over 70 fully edited photos for us to share on social media, and shortly after, emailed us a larger album for our own use. I’m so obsessed with them, and it really helped keep that euphoric, just-married feeling going :)
I highly recommend working with Tara and would definitely work with her again.

Tara ensured that unless it was a July shoot, that was not the best. So, we planned on. Brittney and I both work shift work so, our schedules are limited. Tara was extremely flexible and reliable, and made our unreliable schedule work. When the day came, we were were both filled with anxiety, but she made us feel so comfortable and at ease. There was no pressure- these pictures were about us, about our love and about our weirdness. Tara got in the sticks with us and made the pictures everything they're worth.
