I'm Tara

photographer, wife, mom, friend 

As a wedding photographer, I can't wait to tell your story. I want my TM couples to be able to feel the emotions they felt when they look back at their images. My style is relaxed, natural, simple, and fun. I'm not just your photographer, I'm the girl who's with you from the beginning of your planning to your honeymoon! On your special day, I'm the dress-fluffer, the hair-checker, the calm in the midst of chaos, and I'll make sure you have gorgeous images too!

I married my high school sweetheart, Shane, when I was 23. Originally from Pennsylvania, we now call Maryland our home, and we have two amazing children. I'm a girl-mom and a boy-mom! I love traveling, cooking in the kitchen with country music going, sugar with a little bit of coffee, soaking up the sunshine outdoors, and all the sweets. 

I'm a tad bit too much of a planner (ENFJ here)! But when I am relaxing, you can find me watching The Bachelorette, The Big Bang Theory, or a football game. I can just as easily get lost between the pages of a good book, and I've never read a Jodi Picoult book I didn't like.

so good to meet you!

My Once-in-a-lifetime Love

We met in high school band class. We went to college, grew up together, and got married on a hot summer day in June. These two littles are ours, and we couldn't be more blessed. We are quite different people, and it makes for a great adventure!

Green Bay Packers fan for life. No, I'm not from Wisconsin

Put me behind the wheel, down some backroads, and I'm a happy girl

The Beach or The Lake

I love being outdoors, and I can't think of a better place than the beach or at the lake! I love hiking, kayaking, and my husband and I went scuba diving on our honeymoon. 

being near the water brings me joy

I believe in taking care of myself, mind and body. I love lifting weights and running. It has become my "alone time" and the peace in my day.

Home Design

I love a good antique shop or yard sale- I just can't resist what I might find! I love chalk painting furniture and redesigning rooms in our home!

Diy all day
