For Savannah and Bryan's Sacramento wedding, the couple was surrounded by an overwhelming amount of love from their family and friends. The couple's joyous nuptials were accented by fun details throughout, including Jenga that doubled as a guest book and a photo booth to capture goofy guest candids. Savannah looked stunning in an all lace gown, which was accented perfectly by our Sterling Hotel's chic vintage aesthetic. Savannah and Bryan even weathered a few drops of lucky rain on their wedding day, ensuring good fortune for the couple for many years to come.

Wedding Photographer Q&A with Tara Nichole in Phoenix, AZ

By Cassie Allinger on Jun 29, 2020 2:19:55 PM

Vendor Spotlight



Today, we're excited to introduce Tara Chatterton, founder of 'Tara Nichole Photo' of Phoenix, Arizona. Tara is a talented wedding, portrait and event photographer and videographer, and a frequent partner of ours at several of our Arizonan wedding venues including Ocotillo Oasis and Lindsay Grove. We love the way Tara focuses on the love story that brings a wedding to life: Her work is heartfelt and professional in every way. 

***

Hi Tara! Thanks for joining us today.
How did you get into this line of work? 

Of course! While I'm originally from California, I've lived in Phoenix for most of my life. An "almost native" I like to say. I have been married since 2006 to my high school sweetheart and we have two little girls together. We love downtown Phoenix, AZ and are happy to raise our family here. I actually have a Master’s in Professional Counseling, but decided to stay home and take care of our girls rather than going back to the office. I officially formed my photography business 3 years ago, although I've been passionate about photography and videography since 2012. I love that being a photographer allows me to raise my girls at home and also enjoy an incredibly fulfilling career.

That's wonderful! What do you love most about photography?

I love people and love being able to be a part of the most important and memorable days of their lives. I pride myself on building a lasting relationship with every client and running my business with integrity and love. My favorite aspect of every wedding is getting to know the couple and their friends and family too! My background in counseling is an unusual asset as a photographer, as I'm naturally talented at helping people relax and open up, and that means better photographs! By the end of most weddings, I have become friends with moms and dads, joked with uncles, and figured out who in the group has the biggest anniversary number!
