Tasha was our wedding photographer this summer and we couldn't recommend her more highly! When you get married in July (see also: smack dab of wedding seasons), it can be hard to get a hold of vendors. While Tasha was busy like many of the others, she always got back to us quickly and put so much thought into our day. Both our engagement and wedding photos turned out even more beautifully than we could have ever imagined! Her and her sidekick/husband/lighting expert Aaron are fun, professional, and make a great team. Pick them, you won't regret it!

Tasha was one of THE BEST decisions we made early on in our wedding planning process. A good friend told me to initially disregard the wedding plan "to do" timeline and first focus on the stuff that really means a lot to you. For my husband and I those were the memories, venue and music. So we set out to find a photographer who wouldn't make us feel awkward and staged but would still catch all of the classic moments we would cherish.
Throughout the search we did NOT come across another photographer who was as professional, kind, courteous, hilarious and humble as Tasha. Before we even signed the contract she invited us to her office where we all chatted and visited. It felt a little like a first date. But like all good relationships she listened extremely well, gave us knowledgeable feedback via fun conversation and opened up her heart (aka photo portfolio) to us to peruse to get an idea of her past work. Just looking at her work alone should seal the deal for anyone. However, the fact that she is a complete joy to be around makes it an even sweeter deal. Over the course of the rest of the planning process Tasha answered my random wedding questions, reviewed my timelines to be sure we weren't cutting things too tight among many other things. She was as much a planning sounding board as she was our photographer. I couldn't have gotten through putting everything together without her industry insight and generous help.
Needless to say our engagement photos were unbelievable. Tasha climbed into swampland, jumped over fences and scaled tree trunks to get shots that are striking. She helped us relax and get comfortable being ourselves in front of the camera so when our wedding day came around we were relaxed and ready to smile and joke around with her and Aaron and have a good time. Cause it's your wedding, right? You're supposed to have some fun! And man was it fun!
Tasha works incredibly hard; she's creative and truly has an eye for this. My friend

Tasha is absolutely amazing! From the first moment we met her at our engagement session, we knew that we had the best photographer. She is very friendly and made us feel at ease with her (especially in front of a camera). She is incredibly artistic which made our pictures breath taking. Tasha doesn't mind doing whatever it takes to get the perfect shot, whether it be getting her feet wet and sandy at the beach or laying down in the gravel (she did all of these things for us and more).

She is a skilled communicator and highly organized which is an absolute must when herding large families for photos. On our wedding day, she and her husband, Aaron, were joking with us, leading us to beautiful locations, and made us feel like her family. We were incredibly comfortable and confident with her capturing our special day.

Tasha is a professional. She responds to emails and phone calls right away. We saw "sneak peak" pictures that she posted at 2am the night of our wedding.

I can't say enough good things about Tasha. I would recommend her to anyone that asks!

My husband were very pleased with our experience with Tasha from start to finish. She was always (and is still to this day as I'm picking out pictures to order) responsive to my emails and phone calls with the silliest questions. She was patient while my detailed father looked over the contract and was happy to answer and questions we had.

I hardly knew she was there on our wedding day, minus the times when she instructed us on what to do for the more formal and posed photos and I'm so glad because she got so many candid shots that really tell the story of our wedding.

We received so many compliments on both our engagement and wedding pictures, and we'll treasure them for years to come. I highly recommend Tasha!

Tasha was an absolutely amazing asset in my wedding--both as a photographer and a friend. Her professionalism and kindness were so necessary to my wedding day that I couldn't imagine it without her. From the start, she worked with us to determine exactly what we wanted, and she outdid herself to deliver excellent product. She was organized, flexible, and extremely capable. I always felt as if I were in the right hands, and she kept me calm throughout the whole process. And of course, she brought her distinctive style to the photographs themselves, which are both original and classic. We received so many beautiful photos that we couldn't decide which ones to print and display!

I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I would recommend Tasha to anyone!

Where do I begin w/ Tasha & Redwall Photography.......let's just say she is a MUST HAVE for your wedding. Not only does Tasha have that rare, raw talent but she is remarkably innovative & adaptable to her surroundings. Pretty much she is spiderwoman, she will hang from chandeliers, climb furniture and go to any length to capture the shot she desires. She took every single ounce of worry or stress away from me on the day I met her. I've never been at a wedding, let alone my own wedding were you don't even know you are getting photographed and that makes for some incredible, natural shots. She is so easy to communicate with and is a mind reader when it comes to making your vision reality. I can't believe it is possible to bring back every emotion, smile, tear from that day through photographs but she did that and much more. I can't thank her enough and I would be doing all future brides a disservice by not recommending her. She is a definite MUST HAVE! I wish I could give her a 100 stars, please do yourself a favor and contact her immediately!

Tasha really is fantastic. Not only does she take absolutely fabulous pictures, but her presence on my wedding day was really calming as well. She's fun, professional and I really couldn't have been happier with the end product. Part of me wants to have another wedding just so she could take pictures for my husband and I again, she's that good!

Other than my husband, Tasha was the best thing that could have happened to our wedding! I cannot say enough great things about her work or her as a person, because you get a very good idea about both when you work with her. She is a true professional, and an incredible talent and I knew as soon as we met her that she would be fantastic, which she was. Our initial consulatation was so comforting and I can't tell you how nice it was to know that we could end our search for the right photographer (and cross it off the list!). She asked all the right questions and truly made an effort to get to know who we are as a couple, what was important to us and how we envisioned our big day. Our engagement shoot was actually a blast, and we were floored when we got those pictures back. On our wedding day Tasha was everything we could have hoped for- she was totally on top of everything, super flexible, enjoying the day with us, and silently snapping away as all these great moments as they were happening, and she did it all in a way that felt sincere, not posed or cheesy. Our pictures from that day are unreal. If you are looking for truly magnificent shots, and an all around great person to work with, look no further.
