My clients describe my style as organic, artistic and timeless. I strive to provide beautiful photographs to each of my couples that reflect their personality, the love they share for each other and the happiness their family and friends bring them on the biggest day of their life.
All the photos you are about to see here are from real weddings of real couples, JUST LIKE YOU! I know the idea of being in front of the camera can make your palms sweaty - and I assure you, you are not alone! My superpower is to make you look like a rock star, no matter who you are.
Wedding photography is intimate. It captures the moments with the rawest emotions. I connect with my couples on a personal level as I will be there when you are laughing... when you are crying... when you are nervously waiting for your other half to walk down the aisle... and I will also be there when you are partying the night away celebrating YOU! What you see in my work is the result of the connection we have with my couples - people who are madly in love - who also happen to love my art and sense of humor combined with my bubbly personality! Tara Arseven Photography is 12 years of photographic knowledge, technique, and experience, combined with the love of sharing joy.
Romantic fall wedding at The aristide, mansfield

Tara is the best photographer and person! I found her on The Knot and fell in love with her work and then later fell in love with her personality. She goes out of her way to please her clients and really cares about what shots you with who and where. I had rain on my wedding day that delayed everything by half an hour, and it left us with very little photo time after the ceremony. Tara went into drill sergeant mode and managed to squeeze in all the shots super quickly, and I still can't believe how GORGEOUS the pictures turned out even with all the rushing! My guests were very impressed by her skills, and they adored her personality. Everyone said she was professional but loved all the fun they had with her on the dance floor! She got some pretty cool shots of guests dancing the night away. I would recommend her 100%!!! She's way too good to pass, and her artistry will make your wedding photos look super unique. She really captured the special moments, and I'm entirely in love with my photos!

I stumbled upon Tara's page as if it was fate! My now husband and I were looking very early on for a unique photographer. Someone who could shoot intimate, dynamic, visually distinct images. A lot to ask for; we know. So we Googled of all things - and found our Tara! She has a good business plan where she meets with the clients, phones them a few times, and basically gets to see if she believes everyone is a good fit. Her integrity of friendship is exuded in the warmth of her photos. She worked with us to get the coverage we needed for all of our events while still staying within our budget and reason. We are camera shy... no problem. We had a long engagement session... no problem. We wanted a unique venue (our home) for our engagement photos... no problem. We wanted non-traditional bridal portraits... no problem. Tara is like a chameleon in her ability to adjust to each of our requests. We appreciated her point of view (both literally and figuratively!) and her ability to capture the world around us in an honest, creative, and provocative way. We hope that if you are looking for artistic, beautiful, warm photos that don't look like every other photograph out there, then you consider this amazing woman. If you book her and her associates, good luck trying to choose photos you wish to print... there will be just too many beautiful moments captured to choose from.
Happily ever after at the Mopac Event Venue, Fort Worth
From the moment Tara walked in she brightened the room. Tara was so kind and informative throughout the entire wedding process, she made sure to capture every moment. You don't realize when you're preparing for a wedding how fast the actual day goes by, the smallest things we seem to miss were captured by her amazing skills. I was the maid of honor, and my daughter was one of the many flower girls, I can honestly say she had my daughter captured even in moments I didn't see. She became a part of our family on this beautiful day, she laughed, she cried and danced with us all night long. She was there countless hours, never missing any moment, and truthfully never taking a break. She took time before the wedding, during photo sessions, months ahead to get to know the couple, and before she even arrived, I had felt I already knew her just from all the beautiful things my sister and brother in law shared. Thank you, Tara, you have made an impact on us all! You have become a part of this family. Anytime I looked at you, you had your eyes in the camera full of smiles. You genuinely enjoy what you get to do for others, and you do an outstanding job at it. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable while capturing so many amazing photos of our family, these photos will be cherished forever as well as the memory we have of you. -Canealya W.
VIETNAMESE/AMERICAN FUSION WEDDING AT THANH THANh, Arlington

I cannot say enough fantastic things about Tara. I had found her through an old friend from Facebook and was really impressed by her photography style and knew I wanted her for my wedding. From our initial meeting, we were really impressed with her; she's extremely detail oriented and very organized. My husband really liked her and felt very comfortable and confident about her. On the day of, Tara made sure we stayed on track and knew the perfect shots. We just got our pictures back, and we are so in love! It is going to be so hard to decide which ones we wanted to add to our album as we love them all! Each picture is so full of life with such beautiful lighting, angles, and style. When we look through the photos, it feels like each image is telling a story about the day. All of the essential and unique aspects of our wedding day were captured so brilliantly. In addition to her talent, she is so easy to work with. She knows her craft very well which helped guide us through the process to ensure everything went smoothly. We all felt very natural and comfortable. We are beyond happy that we went with Tara Arseven to capture our special day!

Kandace + Jeremiah
The easiest decision of our wedding was made when Tara recommended to us. Her passion, enthusiasm and absolutely stunning photos made the decision a simple one. Knowing that we had Tara taking so much care documenting our wedding day in the fantastic way she does really take pressure off. With her wealth of knowledge, an incredible eye for detail and friendly and approachable disposition we had rave reviews both on the day and afterward from our guests and bridal party. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything was done with a smile. It really felt like we had another friend there with us throughout all of the crazy wedding planning and on the big day. We can't recommend Tara highly enough; going above and beyond, she is who you NEED behind the camera!

I wish there were words elegant enough to explain how fantastic Tara is as a photographer. Not only does she love her craft and is extremely good at what she does, but Tara was such a pleasure to work with! My husband and I got married on October 10, 2015, and Tara was professional, fun, and sweet. We booked her back in February 2015, and she worked with us every step of the way to ensure that we got great engagement shots, as well as a beautiful AstroLove session (if you haven't seen her AstroLove photos, you need to! They're gorgeous!). Tara is very unique and is unlike any other photographer you'll meet in the DFW area. I met with several other photographers before I found Tara, and I'm so happy I did. She is quirky and fun, yet professional, and she really takes care to "click" with her clients. She was so interested in getting to know my husband and me as individuals and as a couple, and she made sure to take photos and suggest poses that worked for us. She is great with communication, always there when you need her, and she was able to work with my budget. She even traveled to my home (Phoenix, AZ) for our engagement session! She loves photography, she loves her couples, and you can tell. Even before the wedding date, my dad pointed to one of our engagement photos, and he said, "That one photo is worth every penny you paid her," and now that I've seen all my engagement, AstroLove, and wedding photos, I can whole-heartedly say that Tara was worth ten times what I paid her. If you want to stand out and not be like every other bride out there, hire Tara. If you want photos that really represent you and your loved one, hire Tara. If you want someone who is fun, loving, unique, LOVES her craft and is professional all at once, hire Tara. Did I mention that you need to hire Tara? HIRE TARA. Best wedding decision we made (besides marrying each other!)
