Hey Tay – Best of 2018

 

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!

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
