All the things

About Me

Hi There!

I’m Tara

The story thus far …
With an Advanced Diploma in Graphic Design and formal training in photography, I established and operated a wedding photography business in my home town of Perth, Western Australia. One hot day, my husband Joe picked up a camera and decided to come to a photo shoot with me. Long story short, he’s nothing short of amazing behind the lens … and thus Terry Photo Co. was born. Years later, after too many hot summers, we opted for a change to Joe’s motherland of Canada where we have become very accustomed to snow 8 months of the year and have been privileged enough to capture many beautiful faces in Calgary, Canmore, Banff and destinations worldwide.

“Why are we in Canada when we could be in warm, sunny Australia?” 
It’s a question I get asked so many times, to which my response is always “have you seen the spiders in Australia?” It’s a serious question and it really was reason enough to leave.
So as you can tell I hate spiders, I do love the change of the seasons, but I retain my Aussie roots in my sarcasm, bluntness and ability to make a joke out of most things, myself being the forefront of them.

PHILOSOPHY

If you’re after a photographer with excellent service, refined experience and photos that have meaning you’re in good company. I’m the wedding photographer that will always be going the extra mile, doing all I can to make sure your day is as enjoyable as possible. I have the privilege of sharing your special day with you and I don’t that responsibility lightly. To me, this is about the little details and the big moments. This is about you and your story not my list of shots. If you desire a friend over a vendor, thats me.

FUN FACTS

Again, I’m super fun (and humble).
Wine (for Tara), beer (for Joe), and coffee (for both) are life.
We love to hike, from The Everest base camp trek, to the Inca trail to now exploring the surrounding peaks, it’s our favourite past time. Joe’s a farm boy from Manitoba, Tara’s a city girl wishing she was a farm girl and outside of raising boys, I spend too much time pretending I’m a concert pianist.
