1. STrike a pose

Let's face it. Most of us are not trained models and have NO idea how to stand, pose and act in front of the camera. I hear from so many couples



We are all just normal humans trying to look DAMN good on your wedding day! I come from 16 years of dance and I currently teach Pilates and Barre classes. I have studied the body, posture and posing and I am here to train you to and your partner to look effortless in front of the camera. In your engagement session you will learn tricks to look leaner and longer and develop confidence to look your best on your wedding day even during those candid moments!

"we feel awkard in front of the camera"

Philosophy

 2. POWERFULLY EMOTIONAl IMAGERY

 Philosophy

MY IMAGES ARE REPRESENTATIONS OF GENUINE HUMAN EXPERIENCES CAPTURED IN A WAY THAT IS CREATIVE AND ENGAGING.

I WANT TO NOT ONLY SHOW WHAT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT DAYS IN YOUR LIFE LOOKED LIKE, BUT HOW IT FELT TO BE THERE. THROUGH MY PHOTOGRAPHY

I HAVE THE PRIVILEGE OF TELLING YOUR STORY. I STRIVE TO SHOW THE TIMELESS DETAILS THROUGH AUTHENTIC AND POWERFULLY EMOTIONAL IMAGERY.

3. Expert lighting

               
  In photography, Lighting is everything! 


   Tara from Sky and Reef Photography has trained with some of the top studios, schools and artist in Los Angeles to understand and manipulate lighting.

Our studio has the equipment and gear to take on any challenge and environment that comes our way to create beautiful imagery


 Philosophy

4. Artistic Style

If we have to put labels on my style, I would call my photography as...





I strive to take photographs that you want to hang on your wall. On of my biggest compliment throughout the years has been walking into someone's home and seeing the images i photographed hanging in their house. It makes me want to do a happy dance!

I am inspired by the outdoors, movement, fashion, and your relationships. I am a curator of candids and I will do just about anything to get the shot. I will climb on top of rocks, cars, lay on the sand get into freezing cold water to get your best wedding photographs. 

 Philosophy
