what TO expect when working with taylor
I believe in working with my clients and their wedding planners to identify what matters most to them on wedding day, and then building my photo and timeline approach around those priorities.
During our timeline creation and preplanning consult calls, I'll ask you to describe what your dream day looks like. Whether its a private moment with your parents, a first look with your spouse, or partying down on the dance floor, you will have it your way on wedding day!
Below is a step by step breakdown of everything you can expect when hiring me as your wedding photographer. If you have further questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Let's Get to know each other
After viewing my website and filling out the contact form, I'll send the full collections over for you and your fiancé to review together. Next, we'll chat via Zoom to make sure my personality, style, and approach are the perfect fit for your day.
Sign the contract and reserve your date!
After you select the right collection for your day, I'll draft a contract and send it to you for review. After the contract is signed and the retainer is received, your date will be officially reserved!
Next, I'll photograph your engagement session. Engagement sessions are a great opportunity for you and your fiance to get comfortable being yourselves on camera, and provide an opportunity to have personalized keepsakes like save the dates and photo albums for guests to sign on your wedding day.
About six months before the wedding, we'll have a planning call to discuss timeline specifics, family photo requests, special traditions and anything else I should know about your big day. Within a week, I'll provide you with a custom designed timeline based on your preferences.

On wedding day, I will be there to photograph every moment. In addition to photographing you and your loved ones, I'm happy to help you and the bridal party with anything you need. From fluffing the dress, to pinning boutonnieres, I'm there to help make this the day of your dreams!

Within one week of your wedding, you'll receive your sneak peek images! A few weeks later, your full gallery will be delivered in an online gallery that you can easily share with your friends and family. After your photos are delivered, I'll begin your album design and send it to you for approval. Within a few weeks of approval, your album will be shipped directly to your home!
gallery reveal and Album design
For your first year of marriage, your gallery will be displayed on my site for quick access. During this time, you can order additional prints, canvases, albums and other keepsakes for yourselves and your families as birthday, Valentine, and anniversary gifts. Although I primary photograph weddings, I love working with my previous clients to capture milestone moments like anniversaries, new homes, new pets, and new family members!

MY STYLE IS Classic, Timeless, and TRUE TO LIFE
I strive to create classic images that you will treasure whether it is your 5th or 50th anniversary. In the final gallery, you can expect true to life colors, with the best images also copied into black and white. While filters and fads can be fun, eventually they will become dated. I believe that love is timeless, and as a result, I edit in a way that will allow your images to stand the test of time.
