About Tara

Hello! I’m Tara, of Tara Simpson Photography (formerly Tara Parekh Photography). I am a Washington, DC area photographer specializing in weddings, engagements, and family portraits. I’ve been a photographer ever since I picked up a camera as a kid and later in life became formally trained with a Masters of Arts degree in Digital Photography from the Savannah College of Art and Design. My photographs have a recognizable style that is creative and modern yet classic and timeless. They are all about you! If you are interested in a fun and relaxed photographic experience please send me a message. I’d love to get to know you!
