Although Tara was not originally scheduled to shoot my wedding day, she was truly a dream come true! She stepped in graciously, adapted to the situation, and was attentive to the needs of my husband and I. She responded quickly to numerous emails and was always available to answer any questions we had that popped up along the way. In addition, Tara was punctual for every meeting we had, something my husband and I both value in a vendor. She was receptive to ideas posed by us, but also offered up many creative ideas of her own which we loved. She is friendly, positive and made me and all my guests feel welcomed and at ease throughout the day. We thoroughly enjoy working with Tara and recommend her services to anyone seeking breathtaking photos for any occasion.

Tara was awesome! My wife and I were her first same sex couple and you wouldn't have known any different. Tara is so sweet and professional in everything she does. I have received so many compliments about our photos. Friends have asked for her contact information for their upcoming wedding! Her work is unique and beautiful. We had a very small wedding and the one thing I wanted to really invest in was photos. I am so glad we invested in Tara Hope Photography. My favorite photo changes everyday because we have so many wonderful shots! Thank you Tara!

Tara was such a joy to work with, and I am so pleased that we had the opportunity for her to capture our special moments on our wedding day. From the start, Tara has been professional, courteous, and flexible. Our photography package included an engagement session, which proved to be a great way to form a wonderful working relationship with Tara, as well as getting more comfortable with being in front of a camera. Our pictures turned out beautifully, thanks to Tara's directive, yet laid back approach.

Tara has been incredibly flexible to work with, which was greatly appreciated to an often stressed bride and groom! For example, rather than a guest book, we asked for a large photo for guests to sign. Tara created the most beautiful print for us, and even provided us with a test copy so that we could ensure that we bought the right markers for the job. This was greatly appreciated, and shows how Tara truly cares about those she works with.

Tara exceeded all of my expectations on my wedding day. She portrays a wonderful balance of knowing when to provide guidance to capture a perfect photo, while taking plenty of moments to step back to capture the emotions of the day. She was incredibly responsive to our wants and needs during our wedding day, and made sure to capture every specific photo that we had asked for. She has a wonderful eye for photography, and her professional advice was greatly appreciated during the day. Aside from her gift of photography, Tara is incredibly funny and such a pleasure to work with. Her spirit made us very comfortable in front of her and the camera.

Tara was such a joy to work with, and I am so pleased that we had the opportunity for her to capture our special moments on our wedding day. From the start, Tara has been professional, courteous, and flexible. Our photography package included an engagement session, which proved to be a great way to form a wonderful working relationship with Tara, as well as getting more comfortable with being in front of a camera. Our pictures turned out beautifully, thanks to Tara's directive, yet laid back approach.

Tara has been incredibly flexible to work with, which was greatly appreciated to an often stressed bride and groom! For example, rather than a guest book, we asked for a large photo for guests to sign. Tara created the most beautiful print for us, and even provided us with a test copy so that we could ensure that we bought the right markers for the job. This was greatly appreciated, and shows how Tara truly cares about those she works with.

Tara exceeded all of my expectations on my wedding day. She portrays a wonderful balance of knowing when to provide guidance to capture a perfect photo, while taking plenty of moments to step back to capture the emotions of the day. She was incredibly responsive to our wants and needs during our wedding day, and made sure to capture every specific photo that we had asked for. She has a wonderful eye for photography, and her professional advice was greatly appreciated during the day. Aside from her gift of photography, Tara is incredibly funny and such a pleasure to work with. Her spirit made us very comfortable in front of her and the camera.

I am looking forward to the next event where Tara can capture our moments yet again! Thank you Tara!! Read less

Tara was our wedding photographer and we couldn't be happier with her professionalism and the quality of her photography. She was very responsive leading up to the wedding and she was committed to making sure we were getting what we wanted. She was already there when my bridesmaids and I arrived to the venue. She was so easy and fun to work with and made sure that we were finished taking family/bridal party pictures in enough time for us to attend the latter part of our cocktail hour. She sent us a preview of our wedding photos about a week after the wedding and we were blown away at how beautiful they were. I dont think Ive ever seen wedding pictures that are this great. She is amazing.....you will not be disappointed if you choose her to photograph your wedding.

Because of Tara, we have beautiful photos of our wedding to help us remember the day. She was very responsive throughout the planning process, and made sure we were all on the same page before the wedding day so that we would get all the shots we wanted, but not feel like we were spending all our time taking photos instead of enjoying our guests. She was everywhere during the reception, and got so many great shots of our family and friends. We've gotten so many compliments on our photos and she was such a pleasure to work with, I'd definitely recommend her to anyone else looking for a photographer.

Working with Tara was a pleasure. Leading up to the wedding she was extremley helpful and easy to contact, she consistently repsonded to our questions quickly and efficiently. On the wedding day she fantastic. She was able to capture all of the important moment's of the day and made a point of getting the pictures that we had specifically requested. Tara was great at blending in and making sure that the camera was not a distraction to us or our guests. And lastly, she was upbeat and positive; we got the sense that she was genuinely happy for us and pleased to be a part of our day.

Tara was absolutely fantastic and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. Our meetings were helpful in getting everyone on the same page, and she really wants to make sure she is taking the pictures you want. Her prices were higher than other photographers we met with, but the quality of her work is unquestionable and absolutely worth the price, especially with her packages - we had an engagement session and guest signing book for the wedding with those photographs included with our wedding package. We've gotten amazing reviews of our photographs so far and our families are excited to order their albums and pictures! Highly recommended without question, and I'd love to work with her in the future with her other areas of photography.

Tara was absolutely wonderful throughout our entire day. She made our wedding day so much fun--going off with Tara for our couple photos after the ceremony was probably my favorite part of the day! She has a great eye for what will create the best picture but she is so flexible and willing to try any idea you may have as well. Somehow she makes herself invisible and gets the best shots all at the same time. I could not be happier with our decision to use Tara as our photographer for our wedding, the girl is amazing!

Tara is an amazing photographer. From the beginning she was thorough, professional, timely, organized and most important, excited about our big day as much as we were. We did an engagement session with Tara about 3 months prior to our wedding. The session was easy and she made us feel comfortable and at ease. The pictures came out great and we received so many compliments. We knew our wedding photos would be equally as fabulous.

And they are… the wedding photos are BEAUTIFUL! I told her I was not into the traditional posed wedding pictures because I think they can look a little cheesy. I was blown away when I saw what she did with the wedding photos! They were amazing! Tara captured our most special day in a fresh, photojournalistic way, capturing the smallest of details. We will have the best of memories of our wedding day thanks to Tara.

I would HIGHLY recommend her! She not only does great work in such a professional and fun way, she didn't charge me an arm and a leg either! Her prices are very fare for the high level of service and quality that you get. If you want great photos that capture your true essence as a couple on your wedding day then go with Tara!

Tara did a phenomenal job with us! She arrived on time and had creative ideas for the pre-ceremony pictures. We didn't even see her during the ceremony and yet she has great pictures! She stays hidden so the guests can enjoy the ceremony but maneuvers around to get all angles. After the ceremony she ran the family photos like clockwork which allowed us a speedy turn around time. We enjoyed her capturing moments of my husband and I that we didn't even know she was taking! Our pictures took a little longer than expected to arrive but they were so great it was worth the wait! I would recommend her for weddings as well as any other event you would want photographed!

Tara has been amazing! Even before we actually met Tara, she has been more than great with communication. She is very quick to respond and VERY on top of things. Throughout our wedding experience she has contacted us with great ideas and information to help both her and I prepare for the big day. My husband and I never had a worry with her. There were times where I was slacking but she was there to pull it all together.

We have received numerous amounts of compliments on our engagement and wedding photos and we couldn't have been more pleased with her work. Not only can Tara take amazing pictures with an artistic view, but she can edit them and present them beautifully. When we received our guest book we were blown away (our guests were too). Our wedding pictures capture our most memorable expressions and emotions from that day and they help us relive the best day of our lives.

"Great things come in small packages"... She's a small little thing but she sure does hold her own! We were impressed when she showed up to our first session with two huge cameras that were bigger than her! She's sweet, creative, professional, extremely flexible, understanding, reliable, down to earth and she loves what she does. We have had nothing but the best from her and we will continue to refer her and use her in our future events.

I feel like Tara really listened to what I wanted and she delivered beyond what I imagined. I highly recommend Tara for any event.

I actually found Tara on Craigslist, hoping to find someone without a "set" price as this wasn't my first wedding and it wasn't going to be huge by any means. She was flexible with her pricing and in hind-sight I realize was a tremendous BARGAIN she was in comparison to every other photographer in the area I contacted( which was about 15 or more). I didnt know what to expect in the beginning because she wasn't "price set" like all the others so I wasn't sure how experienced she was with weddings. She showed up a month or so ahead at the church to meet us and check out the church. She was very in contact the whole time and amazingly professional. She was were she needed to be at all times during the wedding and reception. Her AMAZING talent caused me to end up with the most amazing wedding pictures ever. Every need I had she met. Any concerns I had she addressed and took care of and I am very particular and picky. The finished product was beautiful and she even sent me an extra Thank You! She was accomodating, professional, TALENTED, fairly priced, and sweet! I would use her over and over for any photography needs I have and would highly recommend her to anyone wanting wedding pictures that aren't necessarily your typical stuffy posed pictures (but if you like that I am sure she'd accomodate that request as well). Please use Tara Hope Photography for a stress free high quality remembrance of your special day!
