What even is a photo session without this? What is a relationship without this?! If you're not having fun you're seriously not living!
When you attend your session with me please come in anticipation of this! Do you want to receive your images back looking like the Lifetouch poses you received in 5th grade? Me either! To avoid this let's shake it up! Let's laugh & joke and get to know each other, for real!
Disclaimer: If you like Lifetouch, that's cool! You just won't be receiving it with me!
Whether you're working with me for your engagement shoot, wedding day, or your family photos I WILL be getting shots of those details! You know, the things you spent so much time to create & get just right even though your fiance / husband simply didn't understand.
Remember that necklace your mother gave you on your wedding day? Or the penny your aunt told you to wear in your shoe to bring you a financially healthy marriage? Yeah... I want to see all of that & capture it for you!
Unless that is... you want to forget some of the BEST pieces of your day?
I want you to know that I take your photos seriously. I am beyond honored that you have chosen me to document your day & your family.
I know that photography is one of the most important gifts we give ourselves. It's the only thing that allows us to replay a moment over & over & over. It's a real-life time machine, in my opinion.
Because of that, I will walk you through step-by-step and provide you with tips, tools & laughs to make your photos the best ever!
When we are finished, you're not losing me! You're gaining a new genuine friend! I care about you. I want to hear how your kids' first day of school was and the new recipe you tried out this week.
If you don't like friends... well... that's too bad.
Compliment and coordinate but don’t get too matchy.
Don't be afraid to dress up! These photos will be gracing the walls of your home, your family's home, your social media profile and Christmas cards. Why not take the opportunity to show up in your best! Accessorize, bring a couple of layers or outfit changes just in case! Always remember to bring a backup outfit for those little ones!
Family session: Bring “clean finger” snacks and water for the kiddos & a favorite toy for a little extra persuasion!
If you're engaged bring your ring! I also recommend a floral bouquet.
On your wedding day it's all about those details! Your shoes, jewelry, sentimental family heirlooms, stationary, loose flowers from the florist, etc. The more the merrier when it comes to details! It's always helpful to box them up separately so no one has to look and gather them on the day of your wedding.
I am more than happy to make a few suggestions for a great location for your photos- just tell me your vibe (water, field, architectural) and we will work together to find the perfect spot!
Want to get away?! Me too!! Inquire about pricing for adventure shoots!
Tara is the sweetest photographer who will immediately feel like an old friend. Not only did she capture INCREDIBLE photos both at the engagement session and the wedding day, but she also was the best hype gal a girl could ask for. She made the wedding day so fun and was so easy to work with! We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with her. Our wedding photos are hanging all over our new house!
The BEST photographer in San Antonio!!
When I first got engaged, the best advice I received was to hire a photographer you love because those pictures are what last forever, and hiring Tara was without a doubt one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. Being a Covid couple, a lot of things changed throughout our planning process, and not only was Tara flexible and patient with us, she never lost her excitement for our wedding or her desire to make sure we had a great experience! My husband and I had so much fun taking our pictures, and I cherish the images and memories Tara was able to capture for us. I'm already planning on coming to Tara for future photo sessions, and would recommend her to anyone searching for a wedding photographer!
Couldn't have asked for a better photographer!
We knew we absolutely had the best of the best...
Tara is absolutely WONDERFUL!!!! Everything you could want and more in a wedding photographer! We laugh because neither of us can remember how I first found her, but man am I so glad I did! What started out as a search for a wedding photographer, quickly turned into a lifelong friendship. Tara puts an immense amount of effort, personalization and energy into every single one of her clients and has such passion for what she does. It truly shows through her work and with the way she brings such life to her photos! She even traveled all the way from Texas to Colorado to take our engagement photos at Rocky Mountain National Park!!! This was something that blew my husband and I away-after her offer to do this for us and upon seeing the pictures afterwards, we knew we absolutely had the best of the BEST! She also put together a last minute livestream of our wedding ceremony on April 4th when it was postponed, due to coronavirus, so that our family and friends could share in that moment with us. Not only is she a top notch photographer, she is a great and genuine person and such a joy to be around! If you are uncomfortable in front of the camera, she'll make you feel like the most beautiful girl in the world. If you have kids that can't and won't sit still, she's got you. She has ideas and tricks up her sleeve for almost anything and continues to impress me with how versatile she is in any environment! Another thing I noticed about Tara is that she has such a talent for capturing the most intimate and special moments-she truly truly cares and will put in her 110% effort to provide you with an irreplaceable gift, a memory, that you will treasure forever. LOOK NO FURTHER FOR ANY OF YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY NEEDS EVERYONE, TARA IS YOUR GIRL!!!
Y'ALL! Where do I even start! Tara made our wedding experience- all of it, from our first meeting with her, to our engagement session with our sweet pup, to our Texas State session, to our wedding day- absolutely incredible. She is such a warm, bubbly person that really makes easing into pictures more comfortable. We felt so awkward taking pictures, but she made it feel so effortless and gives tips that make your pictures outstanding! Not only is Tara an amazing photographer, but she is also a great friend. I also have to give a shoutout to her second shooter that was there for our wedding day, Ashley- so fun and fit right in with the crowd. LOVED having two people with knowledge taking shots all day. The turnaround time for all of our photo sessions was so quick! Tara was such a pleasure to work with, I cannot recommend her enough!!
You need Tara Williams Photography in your life!
From the moment we met her at the San Antonio Wedding Fair, I knew I wanted her to be a part of our special day. Her positive, professional and friendly attitude made us feel welcomed and loved right from the start. After talking with her and sharing our vision, it was the greatest feeling knowing she was so interested in helping us create and capture those moments. Tara is responsive, accommodating to our preferences and a talented photographer. Our engagement session was amazing and the way she made us feel is indescribable. Our pictures didn't look posed and she made them feel so natural. You can really tell from her photographs that she truly cares about her clients. We are counting down the days to get to work with her again on our wedding day and are so blessed to have made such a great friend like Tara to share special moments with.
Tara was one of the greatest additions to our wedding vendor team!
Tara is top notch. I had my engagement photos taken 3 times (2 prior to Tara and one with her). My prior experiences I will not discuss, but I will say there will be a multitude of reasons why I was not going to trust them to do my wedding photos! First, in our engagement session with Tara, she was warm and fun. She helped pose us in ways that featured my now husband and I. Also, my laughs, a lot of them were genuine because we were having a ball during the session with her. We got our photos back and I knew she was the one I could trust to capture all the special moments of our wedding day. Second, Tara captured my wedding to be just as magical as I remember it being. The photos are timeless. The lighting is perfect. I am so dang happy with my wedding photos! If I had to choose a photographer again, I would choose Tara again! Next important photos I need, I will drive/fly so she can take them!
Hire Tara, you won't regret it!
Tara is absolutely phenomenal! She was organized, prompt, and one of the SWEETEST humans we have ever met! We absolutely love our wedding photos and could not have been happier with our decision to use Tara for such a monumental moment in our lives.
We love our photos!
Wow... the pictures are beautiful! I can’t stop looking at them. Tara is incredibly talented and easy to work with, she made the experience easy and fun! She can just make you feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera. She is incredibly talented and professional about her work.
I highly recommend Tara Williams Photography!
She can just make you feel confident and beautiful in front of the camera.
Tara is amazing. From our first meeting to delivery my experience working with her was wonderful! Day of- her second was so nice! They both knew exactly what to do and everything ran seamlessly. They got the job done without being pushy. They were both very personable! Even my (sometimes) grumpy Dad loved them! The photos were absolutely beautiful.
The photos were absolutely beautiful.
Tara was super sweet and made my usually shy girls feel at ease and actually smile for our pictures... something they have not done well for other photographers! She was so much fun and got our pictures back super quickly! Also loved that she was very responsive and easy to work with, and doesn’t charge a bunch of extra fees. Highly recommend her!
She was so much fun!
