About Tara

GET TO KNOW ME BETTER

Hello! I am so happy you are here!

My name is Tara Kneiser (pronounce the K). I have lived in Oak Ridge, Tennessee since 2004. I originate from Gresham, Nebraska, but received a degree in photography from the Art Institute of Colorado in 2003. I've been a professional photographer since 2006, formerly operating as Dixie Pixel Photography.

HOW’S THE PHOTOSHOOT

EXPERIENCE WITH ME

I knew that Tara's pictures were amazing coming into the process (why we wanted her to be our photographer) but Michael and I definitely had no idea what to expect and were a little unsure about how the whole engagement photo shoot was going to go, but it turned out to be super fun! Tara is so much fun to work with and is amazing at what she does! She was someone we both just instantly really liked and got along with. She has a great sense of humor and is able to make you feel comfortable and at ease. We laughed and joked the whole time and the photos came out beautiful. The day of our wedding was super rainy and I was a little bummed that we couldn't be outside but she texted me before to let me know she would make magic rain or shine, and she did! Turns out the rain made one of my favorite photos! She is the best!
Thank you, Tara, you ROCK!

EXPERIENCE WITH ME

I wish I could give more stars because I can't say enough good things about Tara! I researched a ton of photographers in the Knoxville area for my wedding day, but I chose Tara for her unique eye, creativity, and friendliness. She's so easy to work with, made us feel comfortable in front of the camera, and was completely unobtrusive throughout the wedding day. Plus, our pictures are STUNNING. I highly recommend her services!

Where to even start with Tara...first she is just a great person and really puts you at ease during your session. When I got my pictures back I literally cried tears of joy. They are gorgeous and capture amazing moments. Thanks Tara!
