I'm Taylor, your favorite irreverent wedding and elopement photographer, dog mom, and the most fun you've had during a photoshoot since, like, ever. I am also an aunt to the three little munchkins in that photo (plus a few others not pictured). I swear, I love to joke around, and chances are I will roast you at some point (it means I like you).
I'm also insanely passionate about creating meaningful art and my nostalgic little heart knows the value of capturing the art of your life, your life story, and life's best (and sometimes smallest) moments. The idea that the photos I take for you could hang on your walls for years to come sets my heart ablaze.
I am so honored you're here and considering taking me along for the ride to your wedding or elopement day. I can't wait to meet you and get this party started!

As cliche as it is the things that matter most to me in life are my family, my doggo, Moe, and experiencing life to it's fullest. Traveling is a big part of that experience for me! My new years resolution for 2022 is to travel somewhere every month throughout the year. Where should we go together?
I also love coffee (my go to Starbucks order is a white chocolate mocha), volleyball (I actually played in college), and planning where I will eat next :)
RThat’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favorite things. No matter who and where we are, we’re all souls wandering this beautiful earth, with a different story to share. No tale is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!)
I've always been very nostalgic. I got my first camera for my 16th birthday and it all kind of spiraled form there. When I picked my camera back up a few months after getting my first "big girl" job I started offering sessions with absolutely no intention of photographing weddings because surely that was just something I couldn't do.
Then I got married - and to be honest, I had a horrible experience with my wedding photographer. He didn't care about me, my fiance, or our wedding day. He cared about getting cool pictures for his Instagram and portfolio and collecting my money. Apparently I didn't have the "look" he preferred for his portfolio. I felt horrible about myself, depressed looking at my wedding photos, and like I had put my faith and trust (and money) in someone who didn't care about me at all. In that moment I knew I had to become a wedding photography so that no one would have to feel that way ever again.
I shoot with no ego, meaning you are not "for the gram" in my eyes. I LOVE to take awesome, artistic, fun, and creative photos. But you are not my art project. This is your story and I'm here to unapologetically capture it.
When you choose me to be your 3rd wheel on your wedding day our journey together actually starts wayyyyyy before that day (spoiler alert: if you're reading this our journey already started and I love that for us.) It's really important to me that we spend some time together, starting with meeting face to face before you book.
It's likely I'll be part of your wedding planning process throughout the entirety of things from getting started to timeline planning, and even after the wedding/elopement! And that's one of the reasons I FREAKING LOVE capturing love stories. I like to get to know you, who you guys truly are, so I can accurately capture the honest truth of your love day of.
On your wedding day you'll find me coming in hot with my coffee ready to get the party started! I will back in the background for the all the little, natural and candid moments - some you may not even see happening until you look at your gallery. For the moments that need direction and guidance I've got you! You don't have to worry about what to do with your hands I promise :) I'm the oldest of 10 kids and great at being the boss!
Within 24 hours of your session/wedding/elopement you will get a sneak peek from me and your whole gallery in 4-10 weeks!
She is worth every penny and I couldn’t be happier with the choice we made!
Taylor made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera & led us through every pose so naturally. The quality of her photos are amazing & so beautiful! I can’t stop looking at the photos we received!
I could never thank her enough for giving me the most precious imagines from my perfect day.
Taylor is AMAZING! We used her as our engagement and wedding photographer. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was just right.
