Tara Arseven | Owner & lead photographer

If you know nothing else about me,

know this...

I am a humanist, advocate of love, coffee-addict, part-time shower singer, and full-time wedding and portrait photographer.

 

I believe love has no boundaries and we should be shameless when it comes to showing how much we love someone. Life is too short not to enjoy it, and we should love, laugh, and live with all our hearts.

My team and I provide inclusive, body-positive, and human-centric photography for all. Taradise welcomes anyone who has LOVE in their heart for others regardless of race, color, religion, gender, gender expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, or marital status. We pride ourselves on making everyone feel loved and welcomed!
If you are someone who respects inclusivity in all forms, we want to work with you! ;)

Okay, a little bit more...

My motto: Do something the best you can or don't even touch it. I put EVERYTHING into what I do, whether it's a wedding gig or cooking rice. I may be a little OCD and a perfectionist.

 

I adore everything furry with four legs, or two legs with wings. On the other hand, (don't laugh) anything with no legs or more than four legs... They scare the sh*t out of me! If I start running for the hills when two seconds ago I was laughing with you during our session, there is probably a UFI (unidentified flying insect) chasing me. Save me first; we'll laugh together later.

 

I invest in the best waterproof makeup products that could possibly withstand a hurricane because my eyes tend to leak during vows, father-daughter dances, and at times when others start crying in front of me!

 

I'm a hugger. Handshakes are too "corporate". Do I look like corporate material? I thought not!
(With the recent covid-19 outbreak, these turned into awkward air hugs - but y'all have your real hug credits and will get the real deal once it is safe to hug again! :) )

I have a huge sleeve tattoo of my beloved father done by the very talented Turkish artist Selim Bozkurt .

 

I will totally show your guests how to dance the Cupid Shuffle if they don't know how.

 

Oh! I can sing - but I only sing when I'm alone. You can say I'm a shower singer! :)
