Behind the Scenes: 2016

January 14, 2017 Journal, Lifestyle, Wedding 0

2016 was a wonderful year for Tara Katherine Photography. As I sit here and “catch up” on the business in my off season, I have time to reflect on how wonderful this past year has been. Being a photographer is one of the most exciting and rewarding jobs out there (in my humble opinion of course!). At the start of every new year I look forward to all of the couples who I will get to share their special wedding day with. I look forward... Read more

What a way to end 2016!

December 31, 2016 Wedding 0

What a way to end 2016. Thank you so much! I seriously am so lucky to love my job this much and be blessed to photograph such wonderful people. “Tara gave us absolutely the best experience! From the beginning she was incredibly responsive, always emailing back promptly. Her prices are great and her work is outstanding! We wanted a photographer who would produce natural but still beautiful and finished looking photos. We also did an engagement session her, and our schedules are very hectic but... Read more

Amanda & Josh Are Married!

November 1, 2016 Wedding 0

Do you remember that adorable couple I photographed at Great Falls earlier this summer? Well they are officially Mr. & Mrs. now and their wedding date couldn’t have been more heartfelt. What a beautiful wedding for two beautiful people held at the stunning Ceresville Mansion in Frederick, MD. Despite the cold and high winds, these two kept smiling the entire time and were truly present in each moment. We even got a rainbow over the ceremony right before their vows were said. What a great wedding... Read more

Anniversary Mini-Shoot!

September 10, 2016 Lifestyle, Wedding 0

I just wanted to take a quick second to wish my husband Brett a very Happy 5th Anniversary! We have been together for 10 years and married for half that time. This year we were very fortunate enough to celebrate our anniversary in Las Vegas with my best friend and her family. She was gracious enough to snap a few photos of us to celebrate (once I did test shots and adjusted the camera settings of course!) Being in such a wonderful marriage and experiencing... Read more

Letty & Isaac: Something Magical

August 29, 2016 Wedding 0

This wedding was something absolutely magical and fun all at the same time. This endearing couple had both experienced loss early on in their lives which brought them together with a bond like no other. The wedding day was hot, which was to be expected for late August, but that didn’t stop them from having the day of their lives! With lots of pink everywhere, these two were adorable and couldn’t stop smiling at each other the entire day, as they both glowed in love.... Read more

Beth and Jimmy: Picturesque Summer Wedding

August 15, 2016 Wedding 0

Beth and Jimmy’s wedding was something that wedding photographers dream of. A wonderful couple, a supportive and willing bridal party topped off by a stunning venue and gorgeous weather. As one of my out of state weddings, I had never shot at Wyndridge Farms before. Due to being far away I never had a chance to visit the venue itself before wedding day but after extensive research and speaking with the venue coordinator, I felt confident as ever heading into their wedding day. I had... Read more

Callison & Max: a sweet summer wedding

July 14, 2016 Wedding 0

Have I ever mentioned to you how much I love summer weddings? Well this one wasn’t any exception! This couple was as sweet as the fragrant summer air and couldn’t have been any more precious. They had a beautiful church wedding ceremony followed by a reception at a local landmark- The Dutch’s Daughter (website here). Being the first of their friend groups to get married made for an overly fun time filled with excitement and joy around every corner. One of my favorite parts of... Read more

Amanda and Josh Engagement Session at Great Falls

July 13, 2016 Wedding 0

People often ask why I put so much emphasis on engagement sessions. Well, first off they are fun! But more importantly, they are a chance for me to get to really know the couple. Now you might be thinking… “Tara, don’t you meet with the couple prior?” and the answer is yes! However in my 10+ years of wedding photography I have learned that people are often different when there is a lens in front of them. So engagement sessions are my chance to get... Read more

Erica and Davey: A summer wedding on the Eastern Shore

June 16, 2016 Wedding 0

What a wonderful, fun summer wedding on the eastern shore of Maryland! Erica and Davey have been together for many years and even have a fur baby together, a beautiful Chesapeake Bay Retriever, so when they tied the knot, everything was as it should be. Excited emotions, lots of laughter and smiles! (Well, except for the groom Davey who is nearly impossible to capture smiling on camera. Except I did manage to sneak a few!!)  After their marina-side wedding the festivities continued at the couple’s home... Read more
