I've been shooting weddings since 2019 and love getting to meet so many amazing newly weds! 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 in Cedar Park. I spend my days sing-screaming along to Disney movies, baking the best focaccia, and playing RingFit Adventure until my legs explode.

I'm Tara Lyons, a wedding photographer located in Austin, TX. I take Light, Airy, Colorful Wedding photos of happy Central Texas Couples.

Traditional Catholic ceremony followed by fun and family filled party. Absolutely perfect Spring weather for this Garey House reception. Great mix of traditional and modern elements.

Beautifully Classic Winter celebration, with a bagpiper AND mariachi band (because why choose?). Stonehouse Villa Wedding Venue with planning by Silverio House Weddings.

Quintessential Springtime celebration at the newly opened Videre Estate wedding venue. Bright, romantic florals from Perry's Petals, with planning by Sweet Magnolia Events.

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 baby Jesus, I'm going to prove you wrong. I pride myself on making your posed portraits feel natural 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 "just married" vibe.

don't mind me...

I firmly believe that your wedding should be about... your wedding! Photos are certainly important (and I take them VERY seriously, y'all), 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 somewhat 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 light and airy style that I believe will look classic for years to come.
