All-inclusive, human-centric

wedding & portrait photography for all!

Hello, I'm Tara!

she/her

MUSIC LOVER • ENNEAGRAM 8 • AMATEUR GYM RAT

Oh, and I’m also a kick-ass wedding and portrait photographer.

 

I'm a humanist, an advocate for mental health, love, and equality, a coffee addict, an "almost crazy cat lady" (trust me, if Nyx, Aeolus, and Mousey let me, I'd have a dozen cats here by now!), a part-time shower singer, and full-time wedding photographer based in Dallas, Texas. My mission is to provide inclusive, body-positive, and human-centric photography for all. I want you to fall in love with yourself, your partner, and everything in between - over and over!

I BELIEVE

in capturing the authentic spirit and joy of every person and moment through my eyes.

We're a fabulous fit if,

• You celebrate diversity and cherish the unique beauty in all people. My lens embraces every race, religion, orientation, identity, and expression.

• You can keep up with my boundless, golden retriever-level energy and enthusiasm! 🐶💨 I'll match your excitement for your big day with my contagious zest.

• You value heartfelt, artistic imagery over generic, mass-produced photos. Quality and authenticity are everything to me.

• You crave a true connection with your photographer - someone who feels more like a fun, supportive friend than a vendor. Let's hit it off!

• The idea of an epic game night with belly laughs, Cards Against Humanity debauchery, tasty snacks, and tunes gets you hyped! 🎲🍕🎶

• You're a music junkie who loves bonding over new song discoveries and swapping playlists. I'll be your biggest fangirl!

• Your furry family members are VIPs who deserve all the love (and beef lung treats!). I'm a certified furkid charmer.

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!

17 years full of photography

Sheesh... I feel old writing this down, but it's been almost 17 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!

03

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.

04

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.

One of the best and easiest decisions we made for our wedding...

One of the best and easiest decisions we made for our wedding was having Tara be our photographer. To say she was professional, jovial and immensely talented throughout every session would be a great understatement. She truly is this and SO MUCH more. During our engagement session Tara made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera. During the wedding, Tara must have been on ninja mode, because I don't recall seeing her move around us or the guests, but my goodness did she capture some amazing moments, big amd small, of that day. She is great at communicating and asks all the right questions to make sure she gives you the best experience. Everyone in our group absolutely fell in love with her. I cannot recommend her enough! Do yourself a favor and reach out to this amazingly talented human.

She is extremely sweet, professional and flexible so you feel perfectly at ease every time!

My husband and I literally can't say enough good things about Tara! We have used her as our photographer for the last four years for our engagement, wedding, maternity and newborn photos. She is amazingly talented with an eye for shots we would never have seen. But more than that, she is extremely sweet, professional and flexible so you feel perfectly at ease every time! We honestly can't believe she was able to get great lifestyle and posed shots with a squirmy, fussy newborn - it was like magic! Love our photos that we will treasure forever :) thanks Tara!!

Her passion, energy, and heart translated so beautifully into her work!

We LOVE Tara! If we could give her more than 5 stars, we would! We give her 5+ stars all across the board. She was so professional, always early, and she took the time to get to know us as a couple. From the moment we chatted on the phone, we knew we found the one! Her passion, energy, and heart translated so beautifully into her work! We were beyond amazed by what she had captured!! She went above and beyond for us. She jumped into pouring rain to take the most beautiful picture for us, which we’ll be passing onto future generations. We absolutely love Tara and her amazing team. We can’t wait for more milestones in our lives, so we can have Tara capture them all. We’re so blessed to have found her. She is a gem!

She's a lovely person and a fantastic photographer...

My fiance and I were in a bit of a jam when it came to our wedding plans being derailed by COVID. After much searching and messaging, we stumbled across Tara's website and fell in love. The quality of her work was apparent and we knew immediately that we wanted her as our photographer. Communication is key and Tara always got back to us quickly regarding any questions or concerns. She really went above and beyond in getting to know us in a short period of time to get the kinds of pictures we had dreamed about of our wedding day! When the day of the wedding came, Tara arrived promptly and had us comfortable and laughing in no time. It was like being photographed by a friend and there were no awkward moments at all! But, even more than that, our wedding pictures turned out absolutely beautiful. We got them a few short weeks after our wedding and they were just as lovely and unique as I had hoped they would be. I couldn't be happier with the pictures and I feel like Tara really understood what we were going for on our wedding day. I would definitely recommend Tara as a photographer to anyone who asked! She's a lovely person and a fantastic photographer.
