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!

My boudoir studio is located right where we took these photos. Why on earth is this my first engagement session there? When Katie & Jesse told me they wanted something the complete opposite of their wedding vibe (barn-like) and preferred the look of the historic West Bottoms for their engagement session, I was all in. […]

Hi! The site looks a little different if you’ve been here before, yeah? If not, welcome to my tiny corner of the internet! When I imagined introducing my new branding and website to the world, 100% of me knew I wanted to do it with this blog post. Was I sure what “this” blog post […]

Chark & I (that’s Charleen & Mark) headed out to Red Door Wine Store last week for their engagement session. I quickly knew upon their inquiry that we were kindred spirits. Ean & I also used our celebrity couple name (Tean) to create an e-mail to organize all of our wedding e-mail shenanigans. It felt […]
