Founded in 2012 by renowned Creative Directors Erin Neale & Tara Pearce, Erin & Tara are one of Australia’s leading wedding photography & print studio’s for modern lovers in search of soulful photography and polished heirlooms. Inspired by the thought that a love story should be timeless, Erin & Tara’s artistic direction distills the emotion and energy from the day, just as much as the individual moments. Frames told truthfully and expressively, immortalising not only the magnificent moments but the dozens of secretly significant moments, in between, for a style of visual storytelling that is as transportive and moving when revisited in years to come, as the day it was captured.
Raw, honest, romantic and instantly recognisable, Erin & Tara (& their team of hand chosen, sought after photographers) are behind the lens of some of the most stylish and soulful weddings ever captured. With a signature approach that blends a documentary honesty with the (seemingly effortless) elegance of an editorial, the artistic direction of Erin & Tara is unique. Erin & Tara is synonymous with romantic, expressive and timeless photography. Underpinned by shared artistic values and a soulful approach, the team is bound by a love of couture, creative compositions and an eye for detail, bringing to life every small element in the most moving way. Ethereal, light-filled images of a bride stepping into her gown, the poetic movement of her dress, a secretly shed tear from the groom. The most fleeting moments of pure romance between a couple.
The work of Erin & Tara’s studio is regularly published on digital platforms and quality print publications, including; Harpers Bazaar, Vogue Bride, Vogue Sposa Magazine (Italy), Cosmopolitan Bride Magazine, The Design Files. White Magazine, Hitched Magazine, Bride Magazine (AU), Bride Magazine (USA), Blush Weddings Magazine (USA), Real Weddings Magazine, The Lane and Elle Magazine (Japan). Diving into the world of resort wear, their chic collaboration with Mae’s Sunday, offering a beautiful silk jumpsuit, was also met with International applaud, featured in Vogue Paris and Vogue Australia.
Since the inception of Erin & Tara, giving back has been an integral part of their business journey. In 2017, Erin & Tara co-founded their own philanthropic initiative Say Peace! Posters, raising awareness and donating all profits to UNICEF Australia’s ‘Syrian Crisis Appeal’. They are also extremely proud to partner with i=Change, and donate from every wedding and shop sale. i=Change are an organisation that focusses on empowering women and children around the world with the goal of social change and stability.
The Erin & Tara studio is based in Victoria, but their work is sought out by brides and designers across Australia and around the world.
