2018 for Hey Tay – and honestly for me has been a wild ride. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I went through a rebrand, going from “Tay Daliese Photo” to “Hey Tay” encouraging any and all people to message me by using this and people still won’t. (Please, I’m dying here. Say it!! I did it for a reason!!!)

I made a lot of changes within my business so that I can move forward with eventually making photography my sole income. I *attempted* to have a better work/life balance and although I didn’t always succeed, I made some big steps in valuing my clients and my own time.

I leaned into my weddings + boudoir brand and photographed 19 amazing couples +  15 amazing weddings while also working in the IT field during the week. That doesn’t count the 30+ boudoir clients and the few repeat families I saw this year.

This business isn’t easy or consistent but it’s amazing. Taking photographs you know will outlive you is a completely humbling experience that I couldn’t be any more grateful for.

With that I leave with you my favorite images from every single wedding I photographed this year and every couple I photographed. I love you all and be sure to tell your friends in 2019 so that we can keep this train rolling!

Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lindsey reached out a few months later. Told me her fiancee, Destiny, wanted to […]

This post has been brewing and brewing simply because I did not want to jump the gun. My weddings that were all set to occur in the past few months involved me speaking individually to the couples affected. Like much of the midwest, “wedding season” when not counting these summer months, is in the fall. […]

Anyone else feel their ability to “person” correctly dissipate during all of this? I was a blogging fool once upon a time if you can believe it. Now, I’m trying to remember which of my perfect couples I haven’t graced the blog with yet. I immediately stumbled upon Hayley & Bryce. Just waiting in my […]

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]
