Tara LaTour Lindemeier Avant Garde Wedding Gowns

Photogen Inc. was so kind to send us their recent shoot. They are located out of Minneapolis, Minnesota and are fabulous wedding photographers.

Tara LaTour Lindemeier has quite an awesome story! Tara is just about to graduate from Parsons in NYC. Yes, the same Parsons from the best show ever – Project Runway. She is from Minnesota and her avant garde wedding gowns are inspired by an island she went to every summer during her childhood. How incredibly lovely is that?

The best part of Tara’s story is that she is literally going to revolutionize the wedding gown industry. If this is a taste of what she has to offer we are so incredibly ready for more.
