Engagement

You are madly in love. You have found that one person who completes you and you're ready to spend the rest of your life with them. You are each unique, and together you for a pair no one else can rival. If this is you, welcome to #Taradise!

Whether you're looking to capture the moment as you pop the question or you are already planning the wedding, I am here to immortalize the amazing love you hold for each other. I give my heart and soul to every session because I am fueled by the love and laughter we share with my couples.

You want memories and photographs that evoke in others what you feel for your S.O. - all while looking flawless, of course! These photos are the beginning of your family heirlooms which will last for generations. You need an experienced photographer who can capture genuine emotions, beauty, movement and gorgeous light.

You may think you're hiring a photographer, but you're really getting a new friend. The personal relationship I have with my couples plays a huge role with how my art comes out. The more we get to know each other, the better your session will be. We can go to new places, explore together, try my new artistic ideas... Whatever you can imagine, we can make it happen!

Psst... if you book me as your wedding photographer, you get a complimentary engagement session too! Check out https://taraarseven.com/dallas-wedding-photographer-gallery/

Whether casual or dressy, I want you to fall back in love with your photos every single time you look at them. Run your wardrobe options by me and we will create the look you want together. You really don't have to stress about it - and you can trust my experience.
Artistic Retouching - I will be editing each and every photo to my artistic style and will simply be making your natural selves look better than ever. Retouching is available upon request for an additional fee per image.
Online Gallery and Print Center - You get access to a password protected, online gallery so you can ogle your photos from any web browser. And just when you thought it couldn't get easier, you can totally order high quality professional prints and other products from this online gallery - BOOM!
Digital Images - Downloadable digital files are included in all collections. The number of images depends on the collection purchased. But don't worry, you can always add on and order additional images/prints.

TIPS FOR YOUR SESSION

  • Location - Engagement sessions are even more powerful when they take place on locations that are meaningful to my clients rather than a generic scene. Let's talk about all the places you go to or cherish as a couple! Choosing the right location adds a value to the photos that you can actually notice. The options are unlimited! (Seriously, read a little further and you'll see.)
  • Make It About You Two - Heading to an engagement session after a hectic day at the office is definitely not recommended. Spend some quality time together before the shoot just relaxing, connecting, and pampering yourselves. Take the day off; eat breakfast in bed; get a couple's massage; indulge in a hair and beauty session - anything to make you feel like the royalty you are. This absolutely will show in your photos ;)
  • Don't Worry About Being Photogenic - The main goal of any photoshoot with me is to have fun. I have worked with hundreds of couples, many of whom worried about feeling natural in front of the camera or being photogenic enough to get the great photos they imaged. Do. Not. Worry. Even my most photo-hater clients look forward to getting together with me for more photos! I promise, if you relax and have fun, we will end up with amazing photos.

BOOKING

I recommend clients book proposal shoots within 4 months of your desired date, as my calendar fill up quickly. Engagement sessions should be booked at least 6-months before your wedding. This allows for enough time to edit the photos, deliver the proofs, and prepare your chosen prints for save the date cards, wedding displays, framed gifts, etc.

TIME & LOCATION

An engagement session takes around 1,5-2 hours. That being said, I LOVE a-typical sessions. If you want to visit a special location (or multiple locations), I'm definitely up for an adventure. We can shoot as close by as the restaurant you had your first date or as far away as New York, Paris, Tokyo... the moon is the limit! (Okay, but saying that... I'm actually not down with space travel. Sorry!)

PRICING & ADD-ONS
Engagement sessions start from $700 and travel is included within the 20-mile radius of 75226.

And, as if it couldn't get any better, I'm also a one-stop-shop to turn your photos into custom guest signing books, save the date cards, gallery-quality prints and canvases, and displays for your reception. These items can be added any time during or after booking.

TURNAROUND
Although I absolutely love posting sneak peeks on social media and blogging about my gorgeous couples, full galleries are available 2-4 weeks after the shoot. Are you in a hurry and need your photos sooner? Rush editing and 2-day delivery is available for $300 per session.
