About Great Woodland Photography

San Diego Authentic Lifestyle and Natural Light Photographer


I'm Taryn and I'm a Southern California and San Diego area photographer who specializes in natural light family and wedding photography. A little bit about me; My everyday life is pretty unglamorous, I work from home in the beautiful Cardiff by the Sea and spend most days in yoga pants or sweats. When I go to a restaurant, and if there is Creme Brulee on the menu, I will be ordering it. It doesn't matter if I'm on a diet, it's happening.  I have a sweet husband Eddie (who is an engineer), and no kids yet. But we do have Mae who is a 7 month old Schnozzle (Schnauzer - Poodle).  I got into photography about 15 years ago, but when I started doing photography as a job I discovered something amazing.

What a privilege it is to get to know someone in an intimate way, and help bring out a clients personality and real relationships in portraits.  I was hooked on shooting families and weddings about 5 years ago and I knew that this is what I wanted to do forever. It's my job is to help you not only capture an image but create a memory and build a trusted friendship. I come into every shoot with the intention for you to be as natural as possible, have as much fun as possible, and in the end you come away with really curated and editorial style images.

Can't wait to meet you!

Taryn took our engagement photos at the Torrey Pines Gliderport and Scripps Pier on a rainy winter day and made it the best day ever! Taryn's high-energy and creative plans made for an awesome session and we are so excited about the photos. Family and friends are loving them and we were able to put a few "sneek peek" photos on our wedding website within 24 hours. Taryn is also super flexible - I had to change the date of our session and she made it work. I can't wait for Taryn to photograph our wedding day.

We had such a great experience working with Taryn! She did an amazing job of making us feel comfortable and relaxed during both our engagement and wedding photos. Both our engagement photos at Balboa Park and our wedding photos at the Darlington House turned out great and she was able to capture all of our special moments. I highly recommend using Taryn, she will do an amazing job!

I found Great Woodland Photography on Instagram. I searched a few hashtags and was blown away by the quality of work. Taryn, Owner/Founder, is fantastic. Her ability to direct the photoshoot, but keep it playful and fun is amazing. I must admit I was nervous at first, but her friendly personality and attitude immediately put me at ease. She already had the day planned in advance and we didn't have to worry about anything. She's so accommodating and even has a list of go-to vendors for any last minute needs. My husband and I were running late to our shoot and Taryn waited patiently for us to arrive. Thanks, Taryn! You made our experience fun and memorable, and captured our love perfectly! I definitely recommend her services.
