About

When you work with Tara Draper Photography on your wedding day, you’re signing up for not only beautiful photos, but for a great friend and someone that will be there for you on one of the most important days of your life. I love capturing timeless and artistic images that incorporate emotion and beautiful light. Being a wedding photographer is my dream come true!

I have photographed over 200 and I enjoy everything about them. I love connecting with my clients on a personal level and I’m all about having a good time! Getting to know you and making your photography experience fun, enjoyable, and stress free is my number one priority! Over the years, I have found that the thing that sets me apart from most photographers is creating beautiful imagery that looks natural and has emotion and artistry by making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. It’s not easy being in front of the camera for most, but it’s my job to put you at ease and give you direction and I will always take the extra step to help you look and feel your best.

I am happy to be your veil fixer, dress fluffer, bouquet holder, shoulder to cry on, and dress bustler. Let me be there to help keep you focused on what truly matters. I’ll be there to capture all of those little moments, and create heirlooms that you, your spouse, and your family will cherish for a lifetime. As a wedding couple, you are my top priority and I will go out of my way to make sure you really do have the best day ever!

High end photography, even better person!

Hiring Tara was the best decision I made for my wedding! From our engagement shoot to our wedding day, we were always blown away by the shots she was able to capture. Her talent is truly breathtaking! My husband and I are not super comfortable in front of a camera, and Tara was able to coach us through our photos, but we never felt too posed or awkward EVER! Tara also really knows how to wrangle people together for bridal party photos and family photos; she made the stressful parts of the day effortless with her direction! She is always quick to respond and helpful even if you have wedding questions outside of photography. We would hire her a thousand times over again, and this is your sign to book her too!

Absolutely Amazing

Tara is truly a wedding professional, I knew from her instagram/the knot page she was an extremely talented photographer. What I found out later in the wedding process was that she would be one of the most helpful vendors I would work with. Her expertise and advice was absolutely vital and relieving. I felt so comforted that she would be there on my wedding day and helped me so much before it even came. On wedding day, I can tell you I was dragging a bit throughout the family and bridal party photos, but Tara made me laugh and brought out the personalities of those I love the most during shooting. I can not express enough how grateful I am to her and I cannot wait to see the photographs from the best day of our lives. She is hilarious, helpful, kind, efficient and again incredibly talented.

It's a no-brainer, Tara is the one

Tara did an absolutely stunning job with my wedding and I would HIGHLY recommend her! I had a huge wedding party (25 standing total) and she captured the ceremony beautifully, handled my 11 bridesmaids with ease, and kept track of the timeline for the day so I didn't have to. We had to switch from an outdoor ceremony location to an indoor location due to rain and it was not a problem at all. Her energy and personality made all of the photoshoots comfortable and humorous, which brought out genuine smiles from my whole wedding party. She also worked with the timeline I had for the day and maximized the amount of pictures taken whenever we had the opportunity. I truly believe my wedding ran as fluidly as it did because of Tara. She is so talented and experienced!
