Authentic and real, love moments like these.
Moment of truth: I feel like my head is going to explode. I have so much going on between my photography business, our two shops, my boys, our pets and the never ending laundry and house duties. To do lists and coffee are my best friends at the moment but I am so grateful for this chaotic life of mine. Happy Monday y’all! It’s Monday, right?
I love shooting weddings and all the pretty details and perfectly done up brides but my favorite part is this. The real, raw emotions that I am luckily enough to capture. Thank you for choosing me to photograph your big day, Amanda, I love you!
Wedding today and this sweet boys baptism tomorrow. When I first sat down and put together my business plan I envisioned having relationships with my clients. Being there to photograph each of the important milestones for them. In the short time I’ve lived in PA I have been fortunate enough to take this families maternity, baby shower, newborn and now baptism photos. This is why I love my job!
As soon as I saw the Scottish Highland Cattle at @whitechimneys I knew they’d be the cutest backdrop during sunset photos! Now I want one! Swipe 👉🏼 @ White Chimneys
Editing this snowy maternity session this morning. Nolde Forest State Park is breathtaking and I can’t wait to hike and explore it with my boys!
These two got married at my favorite venue yet! It’s called The Hangar by Hocking Hills Scenic Weddings located in Logan, OH. It also has a brand new house/cabin on the property to accommodate the bride and groom plus it’s a perfect place to get ready! Second 📷 for @justinetuhyphoto
Short little blog up about first looks and why I’m for or against them! Also updated my website! Go check it out! Www.taragoodladphotography.com
Daydreaming of warmer days even though this snow is beautiful from inside my warm house! Stay safe y’all!
This sunset was GORGEOUS and happened at the perfect moment...right before the bride and groom were sitting down to have dinner. It literally looked like the sky was on fire. I was second shooting with @justinetuhyphoto so we ran out and snagged a few photos. I normally want to edit or tweak every photo I take but this one is perfect as it is, in my opinion.
I had so much fun and learned a ton second shooting with @justinetuhyphoto for the 2018 year! Now to go through them all to pick my favorites!
Whew! It’s been a busy 6 weeks back in Ohio! I’ve had the opportunity to second shoot 9 weddings with so many talented photographers since being here as well as shoot some senior sessions and my friends engagement session! We move into our new place in PA in one week and I can not wait to unpack, cook a home cooked meal and edit photos!
My second job to photography-taking care of the bride and groom. Making sure boutonnières are on, bustling dresses, fixing jewelry, bringing drinks-whatever I can do to go above what is expected of me. I take pride in being more than a photographer on their wedding day, but also a friend!
Good morning and happy Sunday! Sad I’m missing church this morning but I’m always grateful to be shooting a wedding! The electric went out in the lodge yesterday and the bride and groom were such a good sport. We ate dessert before dinner because the cheesecake was melting! Fingers crossed for some cooler weather!
The boys and I are headed back to Columbus early tomorrow morning! Today will consist of laundry, packing, cleaning and lots of coffee while also trying to tame two little monsters. Wish me luck!

Happy Sunday y’all! It’s a cold, fall-like day here in Pennsylvania and I haven’t found a church that I love yet. So I think I’m going to stay in my comfy clothes, make some coffee and edit pictures while listening to a message from my church in Columbus!
I was so anxious during this shoot! Jeremy had messaged me telling me he was picking up a ring for Renee and asked if I would be able to secretly photograph the proposal. I arrived to Goodale Park early and waited for them to show up, making sure she wouldn’t see me. I finally saw them and little Liv walking around the pond. When he got down on one knee, she was so surprised! These are the moments that truly make me love what I do!
Isn’t this cake and bride and dress just gorgeous?! @jankishlpf
I’m so excited to be coming back to Columbus for three weeks on the 12th to second shoot four weddings! If anyone has any photography needs, I have some availability. Feel free to message me! Have a wonderful day y’all!
I hope everyone enjoyed their long weekend! It was a nice little break but time to get back to work! I’ve started doing product photography for my moms business as well as managing her social media plus working on my business and reaching clientele in a new town where I don’t know anyone. So many learning curves happening at once but I’m taking it day by day and enjoying the process!
How cute are these lovebirds?! Hope everyone is having a wonderful Thursday!
Still booking for 2018 and 2019!
Gorgeous invitation suite!
Her smile is contagious, their love is so natural. Capturing the love between the two of them was effortless. So glad they picked me to be a part of their day!
We have officially moved to Pennsylvania and I’m so happy to be settled enough to get back to photography! The raw emotion of this image had me teared up as I was editing. Such a sweet moment with her uncle on her wedding day, missing her daddy.
10 hour wedding day for me! Fingers crossed the weather is on our side today! On another note I cannot wait to get back to editing this wedding! Sweetest couple ever with a beautiful wedding in Hocking Hills!
I’m up late editing, I have so much to catch up on! Balancing my new day job, photography, the boys, chores and having fun has been a struggle. I normally go to bed with the boys so I’m rested and in a good mood but I think it’s time to start pulling some late nights and drink extra coffee the next day! By the way, if you haven’t checked out Farmhouse Chic Blog yet, you totally should!
My first bride and groom of the season and they made my job so much fun!
The man of the hour!
The seasons here in Ohio have been all out of whack! From this picture you’d think we had a beautiful spring but it in reality we went straight from freezing winter temperatures to hot, humid days. So I’m grateful I was able to get a few images with these gorgeous trees at Goodale Park!
Please tell me I’m not the only one who is horrible at posting on social media?! I don’t post much on my personal social media accounts either. It’s been a real struggle for me. On another note, I’m excited for tonight! I’m working but it’s going to feel more like a night out for me! No babies and I’ll be taking photos and bar hopping with @kellierenehall and the @bumble crew!
“A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.” -Mignon McLaughlin. Happy 10th anniversary to these two lovebirds!
