Love • San Francisco City Hall • Mama-T Wedding Photography

Congratulations to this very happy couple! It was a total joy documenting your ceremony and taking newlywed and family photo’s. Wishing you all the best!

“From our very first contact with Mama T to photograph our wedding, she was consistently a pleasure to work with. We spoke in length on the phone, where she got to know my husband and I and what we wanted from a photographer. We learned a lot about her too - finding out that she was incredibly easy and fun to speak with as well as very knowledgable and experienced, so we quickly decided that she would be a great fit for us. We had scheduled a date months in advance for our wedding, but due to my husband's health circumstances we made a last minute change to get married with about a week's notice at city hall. I contacted Mama T to explain our situation and she was incredibly accommodating and kind, helping me tremendously through this process. She was very prepared by asking us ahead of time what photo combos we wanted to ensure our day went smoothly - and it couldn't have gone any better! From the moment we met her at city hall, it was like she was an old friend joining our wedding celebration. She seemed as excited to be there as we were, which made her presence very natural and effortless for us. She captured so many amazing moments, far beyond what we had hoped for. She even took it upon herself to arrange a first look for us - which was a huge bonus (with amazing pictures) and something we wouldn't have done ourselves, but are so grateful that we have now. All of our final photos were beautifully stunning, with compliments on her photography consistently coming from all of our friends and family. The day of the wedding, Mama T was incredibly organized and got every picture that we wanted plus so many more. She gave us direction in front of the camera when we needed it, but she also captured so much of who we are and our personalities by making it easy to be ourselves, especially during our newlywed photos. During the ceremony, she captured moments from so many different angles but we didn't notice her moving around or even taking the photos, which made them look so natural and pure. We are so happy with our final photo collection and would recommend Mama T over and over again. We plan on using her for any future photography for our family and encourage that you do too!!” -V & M

Love • Highlands Park, Ben Lomond California • Northern California Wedding Photographer • Santa Cruz, Big Sur, San Francisco and beyond •

A sweet day, celebrated with friends and family at Highlands Park in Ben Lomond. The weather was perfect and the personal touches of the couple shined in every detail. I love the lay out of the park, there are lot's of great spots to take portraits and big beautiful tree's line the property. The vast lawn is perfect for a outdoor reception, and the light inside the Highlands house is so bright and airy. My favorite spot is the shady romantic trail leading down to the river. I loved the choice of using Anemone's with the floral, they are such a adorable flower. I wish my very best to the couple in the happy years to come!

Love • Roraring Camp Railroads, Felton CA. • Mama-T Wedding Photographer

Description: Classic styling, with rustic and blue accents.

This blissful couple was wonderful to work with! The wedding party portraits were taken back by the duck pond, a really nice space for big groups to spread out. That area has beautiful difused light and greenery with a winding road in the backdrop. The ceremony was at the smaller grove and the portraits with the dreamy light were taken adjacent. I saw that light and know we needed to utilize it!

As a preferred vendor at Roaring Camp Railroads I love using every inch of the property, and as a natural light photographer I am searching throughout the day to capture beatifully lit images that make you feel like you are there when you look at them….

Testimonial from the couple:

“It’s our pleasure to tell future brides and grooms about Tara (Mama-T). When looking at photos of previous weddings Tara had photographed, we immediately loved her photography style. Her pictures were beautiful and very natural! After our first phone conversation with Mama-T, we knew she was the perfect match for us! Tara is very kind, professional and communicative. We had a couple conversations in the weeks prior to the wedding that allowed us to plan our pictures out in a very easy and straightforward manner. On the day of the wedding Tara made everyone feel very comfortable, but she was also very focused and streamlined. We had a wonderful experience with Tara as our photographer on the big day! After looking at all our wedding photos last week, we are VERY happy! We truly feel like Tara captured the magic, joy and love from our wedding day in our much loved wedding photos!”
