Hello! I am the owner and photographer of Tara Hassler Photography. I am located in Ligonier, PA and travel to all surrounding areas. I also commute to Lancaster, PA to visit family and provide my services there as well. I am a mother to a spunky five year old. On the weekends you might find me hiking in the woods somewhere or digging in my garden and playing with my chickens. I am a nature lover, homesteader, mommy, and photographer. I take great pride and value in my life and my job. I love living and working in the Laurel Highlands. It is such a beautiful location.

I am a Ligonier Chamber of Commerce member, Greater Latrobe-Laurel Valley Regional Chamber of Commerce member,  Business Professional Woman member of Ligonier Valley,  and also an affiliated photographer with “Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep”.  I also photograph special events at private clubs and organizations. The video below is an example of a special event I photographed for the Lil Joes Society of Support. I also make a custom video for all my clients.

I am available for all of life’s “Must Capture” moments! Whether it be Glamour, Maternity, Newborn, Children, Family, Senior photos, Weddings, Special Events, Engagements, Boudoir, Nature, you name it and I can photograph it!

I believe my dedication to capturing the perfect shots and the quality of my photography and products, proves to be the perfect combination in hiring me for your photography needs!

My passion is photography. I absolutely love what I do! There is something special about freezing a magical moment in time, and being able to feel the emotions surrounding it every time you look at that photograph.

I am a FULL service Boutique. From the pre-consult, to the session, to the reveal of images, and lastly high quality prints delivered.  I want to separate myself from most local photographers. I want to create a whole experience from beginning to end. My clients deserve the very best and I am extremely proud to give that to them!

I am always available through Facebook or you can call me at (814) 691-3346. I am also available through email at You can follow me on Instagram as well @tarahasslerphotography!

I look forward to hearing from you and giving you exactly what you want in a photographer!
