    I was looking at a wedding Erin & Tara did on their Facebook page the other day thinking there was not one photo I didn’t like <3

  • Christine says:
    November 14, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    We don’t want wedding photos – we want wedding art to display proudly on our walls. These guys do just that.

  • Brooke Boland says:
    November 14, 2012 at 1:27 pm

    My partner and I are getting married in October next year. To put it simply, we have a very limited budget. If Erin and Tara could photograph our wedding for us it would help us to enjoy our day even more. If you choose us it may possibly mean I get to have centrepieces, or can put the extra money towards our honeymoon. Even if you don’t choose us, it’s nice to know that some other lucky couple will get a helping hand for their future!

  • Maria L says:

    To my partner and I a wedding is about coming together with those that love you and are loved by you. To stand up in front of these people and share with them how incredibly humbled we are to have found a person that makes our hearts skip with joy each time they walk in the room. To show our beautiful little boy what real love means and inspire him to go out and find the same for himself.
    Erin + Tara – you are A M A Z I N G! The beautifully composed images that you shoot capture the true beauty and meaning of such a special day. We would be honoured to have you share our day and record this wonderful moment in our lives.

  • Alex says:

    Erin + Tara capture the secret hidden moments in the detail of the day- working to tell a story, emotions and personality without creating flamboyant set ups. To me their aesthetic is Stylish, classic and elegant – all that I hope my day will be.

  • Andrew says:
    November 16, 2012 at 8:00 am

  • Gemma says:
    December 5, 2012 at 10:42 pm

    I Love the feelings one photograph can evoke …. feelings of wonder, love, joy and hope. A good photographer can take a photograph that has amazing colour/contrast by the click of a button but an amazing photographer captures a moment and tells a story by using every sense and the most important ingredient a hint of intuition. Erin and Tara are the latter and every reason why we would love them to tell our story!

  • John says:
    December 6, 2012 at 12:52 pm

    When requesting “dramatic yet rustic yet romantic” to photographers they seem afraid. Help prove that I am perfectly reasonable and not the least bit insane!

As photos for that special day can be so expensive so it would be one of those things we couldn’t afford for our wedding.
