Tara Draper Photography
Wisconsin Dells, WI
Hi, I’m Tara Draper, a wedding and portrait photographer based in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. I primarily photograph weddings, engagements, seniors, and families. I’m self taught, although I worked as a graphic designer for many years before becoming a photographer, which has helped my creative journey get me to where I am today. Once I focused my efforts behind the lens, I knew I had found the perfect medium that would allow me to combine my creativity, love of working with others, and my design talents. My eye is continually searching for beautiful textures, colors, and light, and being a photographer is my dream come true.
I love engagement sessions, as they give me a chance to interact with the couple, feel their energy, help them become comfortable in front of the camera, and really get to know them. It makes the wedding day less stressful, since we know each other and can laugh, have fun, and let the magic happen. This session was shot at sunset on the back of a local golf course with one of my gorgeous 2014 wedding couples, Ashley and Brett. I love the tall wheat colored grass and the soft neutral colors in this shoot.
