“Incredible and worth every penny! Tara shot our wedding and our engagement pictures. She is laid back and easy going, but on top of every. single. detail. She and her second shooter were a joy to be around. And our guests still talk about how great Tara was. Her pictures tell the story of your wedding day, and she really captures everyone’s personalities. Absolutely the best decision we made, and we could not have asked for a better day or better pictures.”

Wow, wow, wow!! Tara from Sky and Reef Photography is one of THE best photographers that I have worked with. Not only does she have an eye for design, she also thinks outside the box to create unique and beautiful shots. If you’re looking for someone who will do more than point and shoot, but instead captures a story – then she is your girl. I’m usually very critical of photographs but I was beyond thrilled to see the final images that she shot, which is why I’m sharing my experience of working with her. I highly recommend her services and am sure you will be happy with the final product. She’s extremely talented and I can’t wait for you to work with her and her team!!

I can’t compliment Tara enough, she is an amazing photographer! She did my engagement and wedding, and both came out excellent! My husband and I had never done any type of professional photo shoot before so we were pretty nervous, but Tara made the engagement shoot so much fun and casual that we were very much at ease and had a great time. As for the wedding, Tara has an exceptional eye for different angles and knew how to get some really fantastic shots. She captured the mood of our special day perfectly. She was very professional but also very easy-going; a joy to work with! I had no issues at all, and she was always quick to reply to any questions I had, via email or text. The photos were high quality and beautifully finished; truly stunning work. I can’t stop looking at them! Thanks, Tara and Sky & Reef Photography! I hope to work with you again for future events!

best day of their lives

From the first email response I received from Tara, to the beautiful photos from our wedding day – Tara was a true joy to work with! She was friendly, outgoing and creative in leading up to our big day and on the day itself she made myself, my husband and all our friends and family feel comfortable which in turn brought out everyone’s best side! My husband is a former model so I was worried that next to him I would not be able to “shine” as I have no idea how to pose like him! But with Tara’s photo skills I looked every bit the blushing bride in all our photos! I could not be happier!! I also have to point out that Tara did a wonderful job following all the very specific guidelines from our venue (Wayfarers Chapel – they are very strict on photography) and the directions from our wedding director on the day itself! All in all – book Sky and Reef Photography! You won’t regret it!
