Intentional Planning

& flawless execution

Creating space for you to slow down, stay present
& fully experience your wedding day requires much more than past experience and good instincts.

It requires a well-structured timeline and careful preparation.

And a photographer who plans ahead—in a way that works for you.


“She was such a pivotal part of what made our day feel effortless and special.

Her excitement and passion shone through! She helped us think through details, decor, and timeline and adapted our schedule when needed.

And she helped center us—helping us stay present throughout our day..”

“We felt like we were in good hands, and she would guide us toward achieving the sort of photos we were looking for.

Tara was so helpful and professional and totally on top of everything. She went above and beyond to form a relationship with us, making us feel relaxed.

It was as though we were longtime friends!”

I’ll work with you or your bridal stylist to help you prepare and visualize it all. And ensure you feel look your best.
I creatively and strategically photograph your day-of details and bridal trousseau —such as your invitations, heirloom jewelry, and favorite perfume. So I can take my time capturing every intricate detail while giving you, and your memories, my undivided attention come wedding day.

Dress up and reconnect as a couple, just the two of you. Seal it as a date night on your calendar, take some well-deserved time away from wedding planning or celebrate your anniversary together, and bring some fun back into life.

Create beautiful memories and live in each moment, knowing I’m there to capture your experiences, people, and day. As well as all the in-between moments and unexpected raw emotions—as they happen.
I only work with second and third photographers I know and trust. And choose them specifically for you and your wedding. Feel confident knowing you have a team of passionate and skilled artists documenting your day from multiple angles and perspectives.
A wedding album is your first family heirloom. It’s why they are called Heirloom Albums and why I work with you, hand in hand, to create a custom design that tells the entirety of your wedding  from beginning to end. You might not care to have it in the first three to four years of marriage, but it will matter down the road.


"I was blown away with all she delivered.

Beyond taking stunning images, she truly understands what all a wedding entails and she does all she can to take any stress away from the day. I couldn’t believe how well she helped me prepare for the day by running us through all details, making me a timeline and helping everyone stick to it day of. I knew from our initial meeting I could trust her and let that worry go for the big day!”
