Hi, I'm Tara! I am a wedding photographer based in sunny Tucson, Arizona. Though I primarily shoot in Arizona and along the west coast, I love to travel! I am a former Midwest girl from Iowa but my love for the desert has reigned supreme! I love Haagen Daz Ice cream, exploring mom and pop restaurants, and I love being in nature so for me hiking and trail running is my idea of fun I have a 3 beautiful children and being a mom is one of the most wonderful blessings!

about me

I believe my photography style combines two worlds to create a timeless and soft candid look. I find myself thriving in the unplanned, creative territories that you can’t map out. I love candidly capturing the laughter and fun of getting ready and I love snapping away at all the little details a couple would ordinarily miss out on during the course of a day. My goal is to always find and capture the natural moments infused with real emotion. If I had to describe my style I would say I am a storyteller who wants to create art for my couples to cherish for years to come. 


my style



I believe in being positive, treating others as I would want to be treated and above all loving like there is no tomorrow.

I love God.


Family is one of the most important things on this earth and I LOVE my little family to death, my munchkins Hayden & Joey are two little human beings with so much to offer and so much love to share, I am one lucky mom!
