The Wedding Photographer to get

Tim was amazing throughout the whole process! He shot our wedding and his talent and professionalism shined through! Not only did he make it easy on us as the bride and groom, but he got amazing shots while feeling imperceptible to the other attendees. Hire Thara Photo if you want immaculate pictures and an amazing experience while they are being taken.

Supportive, Calm, and Collected

We let Tim take the lead on what he does best. He was organized, detailed, and focused on making sure we were having a good time. Allowing us to be ourselves and following his suggestions- we had such an easy time working with Tim. His photographs come out so beautiful emphasizing color and soft portraits. Tim answered every phone call and email within the day. What we loved the most about working with Tim was that our photographs really looked like us and not posed (while not being overly candid). Tim also catches spectacular photos and does so quickly. We did all the photos we could have asked for in less than two hours. Wanting to prioritize being at our cocktail hour, Tim made our dreams come true. I am so glad Tim was recommended to us and I would gladly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Just. Book. Him. NOW!

I wish I could give Tim more than 5 stars. We worked with Tim for our engagement and wedding day photos. Originally, we weren't even necessarily planning on having photos taken at our intimate wedding, but I am beyond elated that we found Tim. Tim is extremely communicative, thoughtful in his planning, kind, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He has a gift in getting to know people and capturing their relationship in photos. I look forward to the day that we need more photos taken so we can work with Tim again!

I have personally had the pleasure of doing makeup at a wedding that Tim was photographing and we had such a blast. He has a wonderful personality, is very professional, and takes beautiful photos. He has a great eye for wedding photography too!
