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

This sweet mama-to-be was absolutely wonderful to photograph! She wanted to make this maternity session especially fun so she included her loved ones.

Cinco Puppy: Overwhelming Cuteness!

August 20, 2016 Lifestyle 0

As everyone knows, my heart lies with the couples and weddings I photograph. But what you may or may not know is that my heart also lies with Golden Retrievers (and dogs in general!) Growing up my family has always had Goldens so they hold a special place in my heart. And as you have probably seen, my husband and I currently have a Golden named Avery who brings us so much joy. With that being sad, this photoshoot was particularly special to me. A... 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

As if my beautiful summer weddings this year haven’t been perfect-enough, I had the pleasure of photographing Carlos and Danielle’s gorgeous wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Resort and Spa! These two met in the school system as Danielle is a teacher and Carlos is an art teacher. After purchasing their first home together and their adorable beagle fur baby, Bella, these two tied the knot and it couldn’t have been a more scenic or beautiful wedding day! Carlos and Danielle were all smiles and were... 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

Talk about luck! We had rain Monday thru Thursday this past week and then again yesterday and today (Sunday). Ashley and Scott sure made the right decision having their wedding on Friday and the luck of the ‘weather gods’ was with them! They had a beautiful day and the temperature wasn’t the only thing that felt perfect. I have known these two since I met them at another wedding I was photographing a few years ago, and have been looking forward to their big day... Read more
