Dallas wedding photographer Tara Arseven

All-inclusive, human-centric photography

For All

If you're looking for a photographer who values authenticity, inclusivity, and diversity - you are at the right place!


Hello, I'm Tara! I'm a wedding and portrait photographer based in Dallas, serving the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and beyond.

What I do is way more than just take pretty photos and deliver them. I want to connect with you. I want to get to know you - the real you. I want to make sure you're comfortable in my presence and that you enjoy my company. The connection you build with your photographer is what makes the world's difference in the end.

I'm not pizza; I can't make everyone happy, so I will introduce you to all of me during our first call and let you decide if I'm the right fit for you. After all, we'll be celebrating YOU, and I want to make sure you genuinely enjoy every second of it.


If we work together, you'll see me bust out my best moves on the dance floor and sing along to the Bohemian Rhapsody at the top of my lungs. I'll probably have my crochet hook with me if you need help buttoning up the 2894 buttons on your dress. I'm happy to hand you a Kleenex if you start crying during your vows, and I'll make sure you drink lots of water so you don't wake up with a terrible headache from all the alcohol the next day.

Long story short, I want to be more than just a random photographer who showed up to your wedding day, took some photos, and then left. No. I want to get close to you during your first look, vows, and first dance without you noticing, get "within the moment" photos, and deliver you a gallery that will make you ugly cry. There. I said it, hehe!

How can we work together?

I specialize in weddings and portraits, including surprise proposals, sensual portraits, family sessions, business portraits, and more!

I offer wedding collections and premium add-ons to make it "yours." From intimate courthouse elopements to big celebrations, you can design your collection.


For an 8-hour wedding day


So you want to pop the question but don't know where to start? I got you! Surprise proposals are my second most popular service, and I can help you with the process.





Some people call it a boudoir session - but I call it a "sensual session" because Taradise welcomes everyone, and we are not limited to a "females only" mentality here.

Note worthy


Everybody is welcome at Taradise!

All humans from every race, color, religion, creed, sex, age, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression are always welcome here. Taradise is a safe space, and you are very much loved!


16 years full of photography

Sheesh... I feel old writing this down, but it's been 16 YEARS since I started my business in August 2007. I lost count of how many couples or individuals I worked with at this point! Too many, I guess? LOL!


From A to Z, hands-on help on your big day

With photographing so many weddings comes the priceless experience and knowledge about how to navigate those "OH SHIT!" moments on your wedding day. It's going to rain, and we need to move things around the timeline? No problem. Your crew couldn't button up the 2834 tiny buttons of your dress? I got you - my crochet hook is here somewhere! This is pretty much why I tell people, "Book me if you love my personality," because I'm pretty much there with you the ENTIRE day.


A photography experience you will love

If you're similar to the wonderful people on my website, the idea of posing for photos might make you uncomfortable - or even make you feel robotic. But fear not, my dear everyday human! There are no professional models here, just regular folks like yourself. So go on and say, "I'm not photogenic!" But don't worry, I'm here to prove you wrong.


You are a #TaradiseClient if...
  • If you hold love in your heart for all, accept everyone around you as they are, and cherish the beauty of diversity.
  • If you can put up with my hyper golden retriever puppy energy (hehe)!
  • If you value artistic imagery and quality over quantity.
  • If you are looking for a fun photographer, one you can connect actually with them.
  • If you want in on our game nights that involve lots of laughter, at least a 30-minute round of Card Against Humanity (bet we have all the fun expansion packs), good music, food, and drinks.
  • If you LOVE music and like sharing your favorite songs or recent discoveries with people around you.
  • If you love your furkids, want to include them in your photography session, and need someone who's going to steal your furkids' hearts (with the help of beef lungs and/or catnip, lol!)
