Proposal Photographer Dallas

Hello friend!

I'm Tara Arseven (she/her/hers)

Music lover • enneagram 8 • shower singer

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

Look, I'm a Leo - I can talk aaaaall day about myself, how many years I've been doing this, how many exhibitions I've had, how I did this and that... Instead, I'd rather you read first-hand experiences of my clients, all the humans I worked with in the past - and let their words guide you through your decision-making process. Click here for that.

Now... if you REALLY want to get to know me - like, get to know all about me...

BE YOURSELF, UNAPOLOGETICALLY.

#1
Q: How do we know if your photography style is the right fit for us?

Ah, finding the perfect match is like discovering your favorite ice cream flavor—truly delightful! My style is all about capturing those raw, authentic moments that make your heart skip a beat. I aim to create images that reflect your unique love story, with a touch of whimsy and a dash of spontaneity. Take a peek at my portfolio and if it makes your heart sing, then we're definitely a match made in photography heaven!

#2
Q: Do you shoot in natural light or do you bring your own lighting equipment?

I'm a natural light enthusiast. I adore chasing the sun and using its radiant glow to create dreamy, romantic photos that make you swoon. However, if your venue calls for it or Mother Nature decides to play hide-and-seek, I do have some lighting tricks up my sleeve.
Rest assured, I'll make you look fabulous in any lighting situation!

#3
Q: We're feeling a bit camera shy. Can you help us with posing?

Oh, I feel you, darlings! Posing in front of a camera can feel as awkward as dancing to the Macarena with your Airpods on, shopping for some groceries - just to realize, someone on the other end of just staring at you like you're cray cray. But worry not, because I'm here to guide you every step of the way. I'll make sure you feel comfortable, relaxed, and oh-so-natural. We'll have a blast together, with lots of laughter and genuine moments - capturing the love between you two in the most effortless and fun way possible!

#4
Q: How long will it take to receive our photos?

I know the anticipation can be tough! After our session, I'll sprinkle some editing magic on your photos, ensuring that each one is a masterpiece. You can expect to receive your fully edited gallery within 2-4 weeks for sessions and 6-8 weeks for weddings. But hey, I understand impatience, so I'll also tease you with a sneak peek or two along the way! LOL :)

#5
Q: What if it rains on our scheduled shoot day?

Raindrops, you say? Well, Mother Nature can be quite the prankster! If rain decides to gatecrash our party, fear not! We can either dance in the rain and create some enchanting moments (think the rain scene from The Notebook, yeeeeeee..!) or we can reschedule our shoot for another sunny day. Flexibility is my middle name, and I'll work with you to ensure we capture your love story beautifully, rain or shine!

#6
Q: How do we book you as our photographer?

Oh, I'm thrilled that you're ready to embark on this photography adventure with me! To book yours truly, simply reach out to me via the contact form below, and we'll start by having a cozy chat. I'd love to hear all about your story, your dreams, and your favorite pizza toppings! Once we've hit it off and chosen the perfect package, we'll make it official with a signed contract and a retainer. Then, we can pop the champagne and celebrate, because the fabulous journey of capturing your love begins!

#7
Q: We're not sure how to plan our wedding day timeline. Can you help us with that?

Absolutely! Photographing weddings for over 15 years, I'm here to lend you a helping hand and ensure that your day flows seamlessly while getting all your photography requests happen. We'll work together with you and your planner to create a customized timeline that accommodates all your dreamy photo moments, from getting ready to dancing the night away. Trust me, I've got your back!

#8
Q: Can you give us some tips for choosing the perfect location for our engagement or wedding shoot?

When choosing the backdrop for your shoot, consider places that hold a special meaning to you as a couple. It could be where you had your first date, your favorite park, or even a stunning beach at sunset. If you're looking for inspiration, I'll be your personal location scout and suggest dreamy spots that will make your hearts flutter. Remember, the location sets the stage for your love story, so let's make it a captivating one! Have I mentioned I am VERY open to traveling? Like... I have my weekender and passport ready. Just sayin'!

#9
Q: What makes your wedding photography experience unique and different from others?

My photography experience goes beyond just snapping beautiful images. It's about creating a bond with you, capturing the genuine essence of your love, and turning moments into cherished memories. I pour my heart and soul into every click of the shutter, blending a mix of artistry, spontaneity, and joy to create images that are authentically you. Plus, my quirky personality and love for adventure will ensure we have a blast together. Your experience with me will be as unforgettable as the memories we capture!

#10
Q: We have a special request for our wedding photos. Are you open to incorporating unique ideas or themes?

Whether you have a quirky theme in mind or a special request that's close to your hearts, I'm all ears (and lens!) to bring your vision to life. Your wedding day is a reflection of your love story, and I'm here to make it as personalized as possible. So, if you have an out-of-the-box idea or a whimsical concept, let's dive in together and create something magical that will have your friends and family gasping in awe!

The Experience

Client testimonials

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.

Let's connect!

The easiest and (most reliable) way to contact me is through my contact form. As I'm always on the go, I'm not always able to answer my phone. Besides, I get a poop ton of spam calls.

I wouldn't want you to get all mixed up in those! :)
