Wedding and Portrait Photographer
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.
What I do is intimate, it is unique. It is so much more than pretty photos to hang on your walls. It is capturing the moments with the rawest emotions and creating artwork that will remind you of the love you feel for each other - every single time you look at them.
Pursuing my passion for over a decade, I found myself creating the best of my art with clients I can call my friends. I want you to be yourself in front of my camera, as much as you are when we are out on a double date, bowling and having fun. I invest so much time into my clients, the joy you feel looking at your wedding album is my biggest reward.

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.

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!

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!

Tara has not only been our photographer, but she has become apart of our family. from engagement pictures to our wedding, Tara never ceased to deliver the absolute best. Anything and everything we needed or wanted was captured and more. She made my fiance and I feel so at ease (we aren't usually comfortable in front of the camera). During the wedding she was EVERYWHERE when something was happening. She connected with my family and guests as if she knew them from a past life. Still to this day, I have family/friends RAVING about her fun spirit. If you're looking for a professional, down-to-earth, and selfless individual to capture your big day... look no more. Tara is the package deal!
