Tara
WHO IS BEHIND THE LENS?

Hi! I’m Tara! I have been passionate about taking photos for as long as I can remember. I started out with disposable cameras and Polaroid cameras before moving onto film and now digital. As I continued to photograph any and everything around me, I found my true calling in photojournalism. The ability to not only share in people’s lives, but be able to tell their stories through my photos is what makes me happy and one of the many reasons I love my job.

I graduated from James Madison University with a bachelor’s in business and then went on to pursue a master’s degree from Wilmington University. After marrying my college sweetheart, I moved to Montgomery County, Maryland where I now reside and conduct most of my work. And I say ‘most,’ because I don’t like to set limits for myself and am willing to travel just about anywhere to capture weddings and other events.

Tara was a pleasure to work with throughout the entire wedding planning experience. Not only was she an excellent photography choice, but she was incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about my wedding planning questions in general. Tara is so friendly and warm that she really makes you feel at ease in front of the camera. Tara took our engagement pictures (and helped us pick a really fun location-- Camden Yards), our wedding pictures, as well as a special photo session with me and my horse. Her photography packages and deals are unrivaled and made her a really easy choice. We a second shooter on our wedding day and she was very professional and did a great job too. I'd highly recommend Tara Katherine Photography for any photography needs. I can't wait to have Tara photograph our future family milestones.

Tara was the photographer at my June 2015 wedding and was awesome to work with! She has such an easygoing and fun personality but at the same time is very professional. I hate taking pictures and always feel like it is so tedious and boring but Tara made it fun. She chose the perfect poses and backgrounds to shoot in front of, and was very accommodating of any specific shots we wanted. Her prices were very reasonable for what you are getting out of it and there are packages to fit every budget. We just got our pictures back and they look AMAZING! Not to mention, we got them back only a couple weeks after our wedding--I was expecting to wait months before I got to see them. I am so glad we chose Tara to be the photographer at our wedding...and I am positive no one else could have done such a great job and made our special day to memorable.

Tara was an amazing photographer to work with for my engagement pictures and wedding! I found Tara through WeddingWire and contacted her through email. Tara got back to me right away and we set a time to meet in person. I instantly felt comfortable with Tara! She was very professional coming with examples of her work and answers to all my questions. I booked Tara more than a year before my wedding, and we kept in contact through phone and email. Tara was so helpful when it came to planning the engagement shoot, wedding day shots, and my sparkler send off! I was so excited when my engagement photos and wedding photos came in the mail! Tara put a sneak peek on her Facebook, and followed up by mailing a USB of my photos. I have so many photos that it is hard to pick my favorites! I would recommend Tara to any soon-to-be bride! Thank you again, Tara! :)-

Tara was really, really super to work with for our wedding. We sat down and discussed my vision beforehand, and she completely delivered! With so much going on that day, it was great to have her just take charge and give me one less thing to worry about. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer for their special occasion!
