I can count on one hand all the things I truly love to do in this world: make images, travel**, meet new people, relish new experiences, and chase beautiful light. I'm lucky that my job as a wedding photographer involves most, if not all, of these things. My style is a blend of documentary and lightly posed, yet non-obtrusive and emotive images. My life revolves around image-making: My undergrad degree is in black & white darkroom photography, and I'm currently in my second year as an MFA Film student. I teach photography at the university level and am the operations manager of the Photography program at American University in Washington, DC. I'm also a filmmaker, and you can check out my film work here. **I love to travel (18 countries to date!), and am happily available for out-of-state and international weddings.

I am a proud member of the following organizations:
American Society for Media Professionals (ASMP)
Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI)
Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW) Read less

Tara was extremely professional and captured not only the special moments we had hoped we would get, but so much more, like the overall ambiance of our wedding (something we had not thought to ask for!). Overall, we were very satisfied with the pictures as well as the video that her fiancee shot and that she edited for us. It was something we originally were not interested in but is a great memory to have now.
Looking back, if I could change one thing I would have included full rights to our pictures, even if it is a bit more expensive. I would highly recommend adding this to your package from the beginning so you can enjoy all of the pictures that were taken during your special day.

I loved working with Tara on my wedding photos. She also did our engagement photo session which turned out great!

My husband and I enjoyed working with her right from the beginning; from engagement shots, to wedding, to "trash the dress" shots following our wedding day. Tara scheduled interviews ahead of time to get to know us and our personalities, and it really showed in our photos. She was able to interpret what we wanted and bring her own creative ideas to enhance our overall vision. She really listened and was flexible when it came to last minute adjustments.

I would recommend working with Tara any chance you can for an occasion you need photographed; you won't regret it!

Tricia and I hired Tara for our engagement photo shoot. She was extremely professional during the entire process. We first had a meeting to determine where we would do the shoot and what we were looking for. She was totally open to our ideas and suggestions but also offered some excellent advice that we wouldn't even have considered and which we ultimately ending up incorporating. On the day of the shoot Tara was amazingly flexible, patient, organized and efficient. She made us feel very comfortable and that resonates clearly in the photos. We loved the entire catalogue she put together for us and actually used three of the shots in our wedding DVD invite! We'd would 100% work with her again and definitely recommend her services. Thanks, Tara!!
