"She responds to emails quickly, and was flexible and organized. On our wedding day, it was awesome to have her around: she was fun and positive, and made bridal party pics and family pics actually fun and enjoyable. She's the best."

"Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made...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!!"

Planning a wedding is a huge mix of emotions. You're working so hard on something for months to have it be over in a matter of hours. The amazing thing is that you have the ability to capture those memories in time.

When you're looking for your photographer you want someone you can click with. You want someone who will be a calming voice in times of stress and uncertainty, who can capture tears as they fall, and who can get down on the dance floor by teaching your guests the Cupid Shuffle.

Money is a factor, but it shouldn't be the factor. With me you'll get exactly what you want/need. No need for frills or fuss. We'll make memories and have fun along the way. I can't wait to meet you.

you deserve photos that look & feel like you

"Tayanna and her trusty side kick, husband Ean, photographed our wedding this August. And let me tell you, if you want to enjoy your wedding day, all while being stress free, BOOK WITH TAY!! She is easy to get along with, incredibly funny, and professional all in one! She has no problem putting her foot down and getting down to business, but also have some of the funniest moments of your day."

" She made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera"

kathleen+ jerica

"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."

"Tayanna is a prime choice for a photographer. "

"Tay is an AMAZING photographer and a WONDERFUL person! I could not have asked for a better person to capture our day. She made everything run so smoothly and even saved the day when we *almost* forgot to sign the marriage certificate! We are so in love with the pictures!"

"We are so in love with the pictures!"

Look, I'm a firm believer in not needing an excuse to get your photos taken. My husband and I get our photos taken every year just to step out of our comfort zone and do something fun as a couple.

Sometimes it's just fun to step in front of the camera and capture a moment in time. It is also super freaking cool to document engagements, your child turning 1, or anything in between.

I'd love to show you how easy and effortless it can be. I'll use unique and fun prompts to create photos that look and feel like you and you'll walk away with photos that are going to look kickass in your home for years to come.

If you’re not too busy, I’ll request a photo with you and your new lifemate before I head off into the night. I’m running home to a McDonald’s sprite and the sneak peeks you’ll be receiving within 48 hours.

How many images should we expect?

Every day is a little different. Some people have a million details and I've got other couples who are minimalists. You should expect anywhere from 50-100 images per hour. Check out my full galleries for an idea of what your gallery will look like.

How many images should we expect?

I photograph 80% of weddings by myself. Generally I'll suggest adding a second photographer for additional coverage such as if you're getting ready in different locations, have a big ceremony space, or have over 150-200 guests. It's like having two of me,

Here's my favorite part, like a magician at the end of their trick. I take on a maximum of 20 weddings a year for efficiency and personal attention for my clients. You'll always receive sneak peeks within 24 hours and wedding galleries within 14 days. Other galleries are within 7!

I bring multiple camera bodies and lenses to your session/wedding. If one goes down, there's another one shortly behind. I bring duplicates of every battery and flash as well because the show must go on. When I'm done I head home and back up to three different places.
