Austin Photographers | Tara Welch

I absolutely love being one of many awesome Austin photographers in the 78704!

Thanks so much for visiting my site!

I am a 7th generation Texan girl who loves warm nights and can’t cook anything that doesn’t involve a tortilla.

A true extrovert, I really enjoy hanging with new people and will probably seem a little overly excited to meet you.

My images match myself in a lot of ways. Colorful, happy, and sentimental.

While I always stay true to my style, it evolves to match the aesthetic of whomever I’m photographing.

I come from a fine arts background and was part of the Dallas artist co-op, 500X Gallery.

In 2006 I was awarded an Artist in Residency thru the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts.

Those cake photos that pop up? Yeah, that was me. Don’t worry…I won’t swear in front of your grandma.

I was selected by Rangefinder Magazine as one of the Top 30 Rising Stars in 2014 and have won several awards for my work.

I still love how the magazine spread came out!

When I’m not photographing cool people you can find me writing or blogging, wearing yellow clothes, watching my lovely husband brew beer, or traveling around the world (64 countries and counting!).


***In an attempt to come home to my silly parents more, please note that there are ZERO wedding travel fees to Dallas and the DFW area.

I’m also a rad Dallas photographer!
