I understand posing for the camera isn't something you do every day, but if you tell me "we're really awkward in photos!" I swear to the lord, I'm going to prove you wrong. I pride myself on making your posed portraits feel natural, candid, and fun. I work best with laid back goofballs who want me to capture belly laughs, big hugs, and bad dance moves. I'm here to take photos of you as you are... authentically joyful and exuding that "super duper in love" vibe.
I've been shooting weddings since 2018 and continue to fall in love with them every single day. I'm legit obsessed with my job, and probably with you. When I'm not gushing over how pretty you look in your wedding dress, I'm hanging out with my two little kiddos and fiance in Bastrop. I spend my days sing-screaming along to Disney movies, baking the best focaccia, and rollerblading down some sweet hills.

I firmly believe that your wedding should be about... your wedding! Photos are certainly important (and I take them VERY seriously, duh), but I want your wedding day to be a super awesome love party that I happen to be there to photograph. Besides formal posed photos (which I am very involved in), I try to take a mostly documentary style approach to being your wedding photographer. My goal is to become invisible and capture you and your family enjoying laughs, drinks, and memories. I shoot and edit weddings in a film inspired style that I believe will look classic, yet modern, for years to come.
"Our whole family was incredibly impressed with their professionalism! We received our preview the day after the wedding, and her light editing style is exactly what we wanted. With our venue, the lighting is hard to get right, but she nailed it. We can't recommend her more both professionally and personally. Hire Tara - she's amazing!!!"

"Tara is not only sweet but professional and so easy to work with! After our wedding my husband and I were discussing who our favorite vendor was and we both agreed it was definitely Tara!"

"Tara is AMAZING. Book her now, your research stops here :) It's so easy to be relaxed and yourself around her, which makes for truly authentic and candid photos."
"I could not love or recommend Tara more. Tara was the first vendor we booked. It was the middle of the pandemic and I was so intimidated by wedding planning. She was nothing but kind, patient and wonderful. She communicated with me throughout the months leading up to our wedding which helped me feel so reassured in our decision."
