Tara was a breath of fresh air. Her experience, confidence, and knowledge of her craft was evident from the moment we sat down for our first meeting. She talked us through everything from different weather scenarios, to the best timing of natural light. I feel like she got to know what we really wanted for our day, and then helped us to realize the best way to capture it. On the day of, she was incredible. I felt like she was simultaneously keeping us on track, and standing back to capture the unplanned moments that became the most meaningful. Tara is as talented and welcoming as she is professional. She was genuinely excited to capture our experience, and it shows in the final product. Tara, we can’t thank you enough for the beautiful photographs. They are truly special to us.

Tara was more than we could have asked for out of a wedding photographer! Starting with our engagement session and continuing through our wedding day, Tara made us feel extremely comfortable. We stopped even noticing she was there snapping photos. She captured us as a couple perfectly and the photos that she took were absolutely stunning. She was a dream to work with and we would recommend her to anyone and everyone that is looking for a quality wedding photographer! ...And I should mention that all of this is coming from a wedding planner who has worked with a lot of photographers the past few years. Tara really is one of the absolute best!

I will never be able to give enough praise to the quality of Tara's photography and the completely positive experience she created on our wedding day in Rocky Mountain National Park! Mike and I are both camera shy and often feel uneasy being the center of attention. I knew we needed a photographer who would instill a gentle ease in us, which is exactly what Tara did. Truth is, we had so much FUN! I mean, how many photographers are adventurous enough to brave 15 degrees with 40 mph wind gusts for an outdoor wedding, on a frozen lake, in February and still remained poised, sweet and take incredible photos.
We will always treasure the photos because with one glance they instantly remind us of all the love present on our day. Thank you Tara; you truly have a unique gift!

I'll start by saying, I was not looking forward to taking photos at my wedding. I didn't think I'd be able to take myself seriously enough to pull off the posed "ok, now look into each other's eyes" shots. Now that the big day has passed and the pictures have come in, I can only say I wish we had invested in more time with Tara and her husband. Of course she's a highly talented photographer, but what makes her so unique and wonderful from my perspective, is her thoughtfulness, attention to detail and ability to make you feel at ease in front of the camera. From our first call and beautifully curated "Excited to work together" gift, to her poise and approachability, to the final photographs and personalized photo box that matched our wedding theme - Tara truly made our special day, that much more special!

We first of all would like to thank you for the wonderful pictures that you took of our special day. Planning a wedding in Aspen, Colorado from Dallas, Texas was challenging, but when we found you through Virginia at Bluebird Productions, we were relived to find someone who was so excited for an outdoor wedding in December.
On the day of the wedding, Tyler and I were so grateful to have such a brilliant photographer making us comfortable and directing to get perfect pictures that were natural. Your professionalism and creativity were greatly appreciated as we trekked in several feet of fresh snow to great our dream backgrounds. Your excitement of the scenery with snow falling put Tyler and I at ease knowing that our pictures were going to be awesome, even if we were freezing! I couldn’t have asked for a more calming, adventurous, creative professional in the business. I have and will continue to recommend you to everyone looking for a photographer. They say your wedding day is a blur and I can attest to that, but your photographs allowed us to feel like we are back at our day and no detail was overlooked. The pictures exude passion, love and breathtaking gorgeousness. We laughed, cried, smiled, and were in shock of the beauty when we received our pictures and probably went through them hundreds of times the first week. We are still receiving compliments on how magnificent our wedding pictures were. Tyler and I would like to sincerely thank you for being a part of our wedding. Without a doubt, choosing you as our photographer for our wedding was one of our best decisions!

Tara's thoughtfulness and her attention to every detail made her an absolute joy to work with for our intimate Boulder wedding. She made our wedding photography experience so incredibly personal - from her genuine effort to get to know us and our style before the wedding, to the sweet and beautiful surprise gifts she sent us along the way, to the perfect wedding photos we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Her style is timeless and her spirit and kindness put you at instant ease. Could not recommend her more!

Tara was a dream to work with for our September, 2016 wedding in Tabernash, Colorado. Planning a wedding requires communicating with so many vendors and it was refreshingly easy to get in touch with Tara and to retain her photography services. She was organized, professional, so kind, and - above all else - incredibly talented with the product she provided. My husband Noah and I weren't sure what kind of photos we wanted from our wedding, and Tara helped determine which images to take. From detail shots, to family photos, to our more intimate bride and groom and first look images, we couldn't be more pleased with the beautiful photographic memories of our day. I'd recommend Tara to any couple - not only will we forever treasure our wedding photos, but her radiant personality and calm professionalism brightened our day even more. Thank you Tara!
