I love capturing a person's essence in a photo, freezing a moment in time to be remembered for eternity, a mood, a look, a scene.


My absolute favorite are all couple portraits and proposals. Family photos with pets are a close second. I enjoy both taking photos in the urban environment, but nature takes a close second. I generally prefer the outdoors over studio, and the natural over the staged.

A fun fact about me

I'm a backyard beekeeper, I have eight beehives and my own honey brand.

    I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER with my decision to hire Tal as a photographer! I needed photos of myself for my website, and Tal made it very clear that he was 100% committed to me getting photos I was satisfied with. He was generous with his time and didn't make me feel rushed. He helped me try multiple backgrounds and poses for the photos, which was very helpful. And on top of all that, he was kind and fun to work with! The editing process was also excellent - he tailored it to my needs and really made sure I had what I wanted before considering the job to be complete. Thank you so much, Tal!

    Tal was amazing! He was quite a joy to work with-.. extremely patient and flexible with the crew we had....a group of Girls! His photographs were on point... and, in his words, he “tried to make it a hard decision for us to choose our pics by doing the best job”. He succeeded. I highly recommend Tal for any of your photography needs!

    Tal took such wonderful photos of us and our dog! He was extremely responsive and thorough prior to our shoot. During our photos he did a great job of giving us feedback, as well as taking our feedback. He was so focused on capturing us at our best and reinforced that he wanted to make sure we were happy with our photos. We are SO happy with how they turned out and look forward to working with Tal again!
