    Wow !! Just excellent!

    Were so impressed with Taylor during the day of our daughters wedding. She was so friendly, unassuming, and great to work with. While we haven't seen the final product the proofs shared so far have been spectacular!

    Wonderful!

    We had Taylor capture our big day, July 13 2018. She was absolutely fantastic from the very beginning! We aren't really a couple that enjoys posing in front of cameras, but Taylor made it so easy and comfortable, and the pictures speak for themselves. She did such a great job of capturing our love and the joy of the entire day. Thank you Taylor for giving us beautiful pictures that we can cherish forever!

    Taylor was incredible from day one. Always friendly and helpful. Her communication was excellent, she often responded within moments of my questions- and I did have lots! On our wedding day, not only did she come early, prepared, and happy, she brought a prop to help keep my wedding dress clean from the mud. She’s so thoughtful and talented. We’re thrilled with our wedding pictures (and we couldn’t believe she had the full set ready for us in less than a week!) We would highly recommend Taylor and look forward to working with her again in the future.

    Thank you for your review, Janine. It was an honor capturing your wedding and I’m so happy you love your photos!

    Congratulations again to you and Matt!

    Taylor was an absolute delight to work with and made our exhausting and hectic wedding day look SO beautiful! She caught so many perfect moments and always made us feel completely at ease with our wedding day jitters. Her pricing was reasonable, she was great to communicate with, and super laid back too. I would absolutely book her again for any of those important moments in life that require a photographer's touch.

    Thank you for your review, Becki! Your wedding was so lovely and I loved meeting you all. Congratulations again!

    Taylor was an amazing person to have photographing our wedding! She was very professional and kind, made us feel really comfortable even though we don't general love taking photos. She was also good with getting us in to good poses as we aren't very familiar with what looks good & we needed a lot of direction. I had a change of time for the photography only a month before the wedding & she was able to accommodate that as well which was amazing. Additionally she had our photos ready so much faster than we ever expected them to be! Above & beyond all our expectations with a very reasonable rate! Highly recommend.

    Thank you so much for your response, Sarah. It was a pleasure to photograph your wedding and I am so happy you love your photos!

    So in love with my pictures!!

    Taylor is an artist, and her photos left me breathless. We booked for engagement and wedding photography. After seeing the engagement photos, I booked Taylor for more time at the wedding because I HAD to have more of her pictures! And it was absolutely worth it. I find a new favorite picture every day, as I discover more of the subtle details and emotions she captures each time I flip through the pictures. She excels at capturing the candid moments and emotions, and I feel that with her photos I will never forget the love and happiness I felt on my wedding day. Taylor is wonderful to work with; we’re no models, but we felt so comfortable in front of her and it showed in the pictures. Excellent communication and AMAZING turnaround for the photos; it was so nice to be able to share pictures with everyone just weeks after the big day! If I can offer you one bit of advice… no matter how strange the pose or location of the photo, DO IT!!! Some of my favorite pictures come from her suggestions and you will not regret it!!!

    Taylor was very nice and did an awesome job!! We love our photos! We asked that she get lots of what was happening and she did. I wish we had more photos of myself and my husband but that could've been my poor timing. Taylor also did our engagement photos and we loved them too!

Meet the Team

Taylor Whitley
Taylor Whitley
Lead Photographer

Hello! My name is Taylor. I have been behind the camera for 10 years and have now been photographing love and weddings for 5 years. I absolutely love to capture weddings as they are full of emotion and joy-my two favourite things to photograph! My other interests include hiking, petting all the dogs, and binge watching about every single show on Netflix. I strive to not just be your photographer, but an extra bridesmaid and professional third wheel. I will happily fix your hair, train and veil whenever you need and be a friend that will cheer you on for your most special day. If you're looking for a fun, outgoing photographer who will get you comfortable infront of the camera and strive to get those candid dreamy photographs, I'm your gal!
