Hello and welcome to the new Tara Barnes Photography Blog! I'm Tara, a wedding and senior portrait photographer based in Weatherford, Texas. (just outside of Fort Worth) I hope you enjoy viewing my latest work, browsing resources for brides, and getting a little peek into my life!
Last weekend, Madi and Zach tied the knot at Rustic Grace Estate during one of the sweetest ceremonies I’ve had the honor of photographing! Madi has a heart of gold and Zach is such a thoughtful groom, they are the perfect pair! I was thrilled when Madi decided to have a bridal session at her venue in Van Alstyne. I love all the personal details Madi incorporated into her bridal outfit from wearing her mother’s wedding shoes to her grandmother’s brooch pinned to her bouquet. These details made it all the more special!
Bridal portraits are one of my favorite types of sessions to shoot! They are the perfect way for a bride to try out her wedding day look and as a bonus, they’re just plain fun! What other time does a girl get to dress up in a big white dress just for the heck of it and spin around for photos? I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I did taking them. I’m not sure I’ve squealed more than I did during this session – Madi is a gorgeous bride, so combine that with perfect light, wonderful weather, the cutest venue, and you have one happy photographer!
This lovely bride has been married for one month! Now that she’s officially a Mrs. I’m so excited to share her beautiful bridal session on the blog! Nicole, her sister, and her mom came out to Weatherford from north Dallas to have her bridal portraits taken at the Springs Events in Weatherford. Nicole and Glen both fell in love with the small town charm that Weatherford holds and decided to get married here. I couldn’t agree with them more – after living here just over a year, I love this city more every day! I can’t wait to share Nicole’s wedding photos very soon – be on the lookout for Nicole and Glen’s fun wedding day later this week. In the meantime, here’s a few of Nicole and her bridal beauty!

Bridal portraits are always one of my favorites to photograph so combined with the Administration Building and Meredith’s gorgeous gown this session was a dream! We began Meredith’s bridal session at the Administration Building which is the perfect location for bridal portraits and ended at Research Park! Meredith and Richard had a beautiful ceremony at Christ United Methodist Church with their reception held at Brownstone – a newer venue in College Station.You may remember Meredith and Richard from their Dallas Arboretum Engagement Session. I’ll be sharing their beautiful wedding day on the blog soon, but for now, I hope you enjoy scrolling through a few of my favorites from Meredith’s bridal session.
Now that Alyssa is officially “Mrs. Strunk” I can finally share her beautiful bridal portraits on the blog! I first heard about Chandor Gardens when we moved to Weatherford back in January of this year and ever since, I’ve wanted to do a session there. Alyssa and her family were so sweet to travel to Weatherford for her bridal portraits at the most beautiful gardens in the city! I hope you enjoy scrolling through a few of my favorites from Alyssa’s bridal session.
Now that Emily is officially “Mrs. Hounsel,” I can finally share her beautiful bridal portraits on the blog! This was my first time at the Springs in Magnolia – and I have to say it is a gorgeous venue! The whole property is surrounded by some of the tallest trees, I have ever seen which add to the romantic feel of the space. There are so many beautiful places for portraits at the Springs!
