About TJ Torrens Photography

Award Winning Co. Antrim Photographer

I have always loved Photography. No matter how far I travelled from Newtownabbey in my teens and twenties I never liked to go too far without my little wad of photos of the people most precious to me.

When I was just 29 my daddy died. My name is Tara, but he often referred to me as TJ, hence the name and my attachment to it.?After his passing I searched through all our old family photographs. and found lots of memories to treasure, but there was only a few of the two of us on our own. It was then that I became obsessed with capturing memories. After my children were born I was determined for them to have a multitude of images to look back on of all their family bonds, their adventures, their everyday moments. From there my love of Photography just grew and grew to where I am now – an experienced family, commercial and wedding photographer who has proudly qualified as a Licenciate Member of the Professional Photographers Association of Northern Ireland

This Year I was the exceptionally proud winner of 1st Runner up in the Open Portrait Category of the PPANI Annual Print Competition

I work across a variety of sectors from Weddings and Outdoor Family photoshoots to Commercial branding shoots and events I am based in Newtownabbey but more than happy to travel throughout N.Ireland.

I have a vast experience of working with people with additional needs and will give it my all to try and make any child or adult feel comfortable enough to let me catch some precious little moments for them.

If you want to know what being on a shoot or wedding day with me might be like, I think this image sums up my personality and enthusiasm levels. I never stop! Ever!?I am really relaxed and love to have fun. I make it my mission to win over even the grumpiest of teenagers and the shyest of toddlers.?But don’t take my word for it.

What People Say

Tara is extremely talented and a joy to be around; what more could you want?! I am literally continually in awe of the beauty of her photos. Needless to say I’m delighted with the pics she has produced for me on two occasions – couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

Karen Richardson

To say Tara is an amazing photographer is an understatement. The photos she took at our strictly event literally caught the moment in a still photograph… I don’t even know how that is possible. I hate getting my photo taken but Tara makes you feel so at ease while doing so. Thank you so so much Tara for capturing amazing memories of our strictly journey xx

Joanne Akkaya

What an amazing photographer and an amazing lady. Tara captured the best moments from our wedding day from early morning until late at night. Colin & I can’t thank you enough for your kindness and professionalism. Thank you for being so calm and relaxed and giving us the best memories to look back on. All of our guests have commented on how hard you worked throughout the day, you just blended into the crowd and did your thing. Such beautiful photos of our special day. I would highly recommend Tara for wedding photography as she is just the best at what she does. Colin and I can’t wait to work with you again in the future and from the bottom of our hearts… Thank you!! xxx
