I owe my love of photography to Raymond Tarbell, my late grandfather. He gave me my first camera when I was about 17. It was a Nikon FM, a very basic film camera. He encouraged me to take photos of everything. So I did and decided to make that my major in college. About 8 years ago someone asked if I would photograph their wedding. So I did and realized I had a good eye for it and have stuck with it since then.
Recently celebrating our 28th anniversary reminded me how much I value my wedding photos which I look at each year and cherish more as the years go by… I loved that day!
Photographing any event, I’m watching and waiting for the special moments to happen. Looking for the details on your day is as important to me as it is for you. I want to be able to capture as many of those memories for you to enjoy and cherish for many years to come! Your favorites may be those unexpected and delightful shots you didn’t even realize we’re being taken!
In addition to weddings, I specialize in senior portraits, family portraits, birthdays and any fun event you would like memorialized. I have had great success with several locations in Columbus that are perfect for portraits. Inniswood’s, Short North, North Bank Park and Schiller Park are some of my favorites.
