    Captures relationships, natural, comfortable and professional

    Taryn was so easy to be photographed by, she made us feel so comfortable during our portraits - we almost forgot we were being photographed and just enjoyed a few quiet moments together on our wedding day. We got so many compliments on how gently she moved around during the ceremony and reception, how she seemed to be in the right place to capture amazing touching moments, how she took photos that weren't just well set up but demonstrated the emotions and relationships of us and our most special people. In a hectic and shrunk/covid-rescheduled wedding she was an incredible sources of calm confidence, required little direction but made gentle suggestions that brought our day together. I cannot recommend these her enough - fantastic professionally and as a person -I am so thankful for her work which made our wedding day so wonderful. P.S. Taryn loves destination shoots!

    Taryn from Innocent Thunder Photography was more than we had hoped for as a wedding photographer. We knew our wedding day was going to be captured perfectly once we received the pictures from our complimentary engagement shoot that came with our wedding package. I've never had such a fun, laid back shoot and the pictures were awesome.

    Taryn braved the snow with us on our outdoor wedding at Mount Washington. She was well prepared with our timeline and didn't skip a beat on where and when to be to capture certain moments before the ceremony. And she captured all the moments I requested prior to the wedding. As well as our requested pictures Taryn caught the most special and unique shots I would have never dreamed of having.

    On top of it all, Taryn gave me WAY more pictures than my wedding package required because she said she couldn't pass up all the special moments with the kids. It was quite obvious with our experience with her that this is her true passion! I have nothing bad to say, she's exceptionally reasonable with pricing, a great personality to work with, you will forget she's there taking pictures yet she will capture every special moment, and her turn around time to give pictures back was great!

    Thank you Taryn!!

    We had an awesome experience with Innocent Thunder photography for our wedding pictures. Very creative and so much attention to all the little details .
    We were honoured to have her be apart of our special beach wedding she really captured the whole mood and even managed to get some group pictures with many kids all looking forward. It was so nice not having to worry about taking pics so we could enjoy the day. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality.

    Seriously so good. We are so happy with our engagement and wedding photos. Taryn is great to deal with and has an amazing eye for nature. We love her work and will use her again in the future.

    Our wedding photos blew our minds, some of the photos we received should be in a magazine. My husband and I got married in the forest and Taryn was able to capture us as well as the amazing beautiful of the forest and our surroundings.

    She doesn’t just give you posed photos, she gives you a story. We can’t wait to look back on our photos years from now and remember all the details and how the day played out. She captured everything and then some!

She had lots of great ideas throughout the day! We were extremely happy with all the pictures she took! We would highly recommend her for any engagement or wedding pictures!

    Taryn is an absolutely fantastic photographer! She joined us for two nights at our Port Renfrew wedding and spent her days and evenings capturing beautiful moments of our friends and family while not interfering or attempting to stage scenes. She let the moments occur organically and caught them at perfect times.

    Taryn was enthusiastic and creative as we drove from different sceneries to capture the wild and untamed natural environment that we chose to celebrate our marriage in. Her passion for photography is evident and her charm and personality carried through the entire experience.

    We would recommend Taryn for any photography assignment without hesitation.

    Taryn did my wedding photography and was absolutely wonderful, she guided us through the photos (we had no idea what we were doing) and got along great with my whole family. She got shots that are just absolutely breath taking. I would definitely recommend her; time and time again.
