I'm here, I'm queer, and I'm ready to party the night away with my people.

About Tay

This Chautauqua Park Engagement Session blog is way overdue. Hanging out with Haley and Hannah in Colorado was a complete blast. My husband, best friend and I all made it a little mini vacation as well, so we got to enjoy Denver and Boulder, as well as Chautauqua Park & Crescent Meadows. We did small hikes (with big breaks to breathe steadily because altitude and hiking Is a wild combination when you haven’t been to Colorado in over two years) and found some beautiful scenery.

Did my entire wallet get stolen while we were there at the 11th hour? Yes. But luckily it was after I had already spent time at some fabulous restaurants like The Post Chicken and Bacon Social House. I never thought that I’d find myself traveling so much or enjoying it, but here we are. They gave us some fabulous recommendations and we even came home with a new rug, some fabulous queer lit, and some 80s memorabilia.

Hannah & Haley were two amazing sports and they even taught me how to use the GPS in my car when we were in the mountains without signal. (Thanks again for that, you’re a life saver) They truly knew how to laugh at themselves (and each other) and I am honestly sad it took me so long to blog this. I feel like the love and gorgeous model-quality of their photos definitely speaks for itself.

They’ll be getting married in 2022 at Black Forest in Colorado Springs and I cannot wait to see what these women pull out of their hat of tricks to bring as much personality to their day as they did to their photos.

"I knew Tay did great work from looking through her website, but it was talking with her and hearing her approach to her business that sold us. She is one of those people who exudes kindness and joy. We are an intercultural couple and it meant a lot to me that she had demonstrated a commitment to inclusivity in her client portfolios."

"Tay is simply the best. Contact her for a consultation; you won't regret it."

"When I met Tay in the summer of 2017, Luke and I were freshly dating and filling in for a portfolio session that had cancelled on her short notice! And let me tell you... that was one of the best things to have happened to us! We had a BLAST and it was then that I knew I wanted Tay to capture our relationship along the way— so when Luke proposed she was one of the first people I told! I have never been the most comfortable in front of a camera— but she makes it feel so dang easy. Tay has this way of capturing the purest moments, the goofy moments and all the love that exists between them. Just recently, she delivered again for us. Seeing our wedding through her lens was the cherry on top of my favorite day. I cannot thank her enough for the joy she has brought us— and the photos she has given us to show genterations to come."

"Tayanna is a prime choice for a photographer.
She photographed our wedding and produced home-run, out of the park, Friday night lights photography. We asked her to focus on moments: people interacting with each other and less formal moments. Her professionalism, communication and quality is top-notch. If you want top performance, hire Tayanna. 10/10 would recommend, will hire again."
