let's be real.

Choosing a photographer is hard.

That's why I'm here – to answer all your questions and guide you every step of the way. And if you already know exactly what you want, I'm happy to help you execute it! Don't see your question answered here? Feel free to send me a message using the Contact form in the menu!



Where are you based?

I am based out of Phoenix, AZ but regularly travel throughout the U.S. and have even ventured to the Dominican Republic to capture a wedding. Some of my favorite local venues include the Omni Montelucia, Mountain Shadows, and anything in the forest or the PNW. Some of my dream destinations include Scotland and Paris!


How experienced are you?

With over a decade behind a camera and 450+ weddings and counting, I have experienced and learned a lot as a wedding professional. This comes in handy when managing large bridal parties, picky family members, and working alongside fellow vendors. All that experience allows me to remain calm and in charge when things get hectic.


How would you describe your style?

My working style can be described as cool and collected while taking charge. I’ll tailor posing to you as a couple and prompt you to get those real, in-between moments. My editing style can be described as true to life. What you saw day of is what I aim to stay true to. Ultimately, I want you to look back in 30 years and relive your wedding day as it truly was.


What kind of equipment do you use?

While I am primarily a Canon girl, I do use a grab bag of gear. Right now, I love my Canon R6 and my Sigma 35mm and 50mm. I also have a Canon 16-35mm for real estate and a Tamron 70-200mm. I have been thrilled with my Godox flash system and Magmod accessories. For video, I typically use my Manfrotto monopod. What’s my favorite piece of gear? I would have to say it’s my Pelican and SKB cases for travel!


How do we know we’re going to get the same experience with your Associates?

My Associate team is hand picked by me. I take major pride in running my business with integrity so each Associate is held to a strict standard of quality. While your Associate may be your on-the-ground contact, rest-assured, I will still be in contact with you through all the planning and handling all the editing.



Do you travel?

Yes! I have already had the honor to travel to the Dominican Republic, Washington DC, Oklahoma, and Washington state as well as all over the amazing state of Arizona. Travel fees vary for weddings and events more than 50 miles from Central Phoenix. I am a pro at traveling with my gear and getting to you with plenty of buffer time!


How much do you charge?

I only take on a limited amount of weddings and events per year to ensure all my clients receive the best of my expertise and skill. Weddings with Tara begin around $5500 and range up to $7500 depending on product orders. I hate turning anyone away, so I also have an amazing Associate team available. Associate weddings begin at $3200.


How long until we receive our photos/video?

I know it’s so exciting to share our lives right away! You will receive a sneak peek image within 24 hours of your wedding and a larger sneak gallery within 2 weeks. Final galleries and videos will be received within 8-12 weeks of your wedding, unless you have opted for a social media teaser (hint hint this is a great way to showcase your wedding right away!).


Can we use our own music for our video?

Long answer short, no. Due to copyright laws and removal from social media, I am bound to utilize licensed music that I pay for in every video. Every wedding is unique, so I select music to fit the feel of your day.


Do you do corporate shoots?

Yes! I offer both photo and video for small to big brands whether you need headshots for your whole team or coverage for a major charity event. Please inquire for customized pricing for your event.
