When your client tells you that she works for the Kauffman Center and wonders if you could possibly take their engagement photos inside? You pass Go without hesitation and meet her and her fiancee for a freaking Kauffman Center Engagement Session. You know what I’m saying?
I did a podcast interview for Good Bodies yesterday, but the host and I spent a bit talking about how much easier and better things got for our business when we stopped trying to “play the game” that everyone plays and instead just were ourselves on social media.
So many people are worried about how speaking out about things might make other perceive them. What’s super freaking cool is that for every person you may feel that you’re alienating, you’re gaining the love, trust, and respect of someone else.
Kelly and Alison are absolute bright shining stars as people. They have amazing energy, banter, and just genuine love and respect for each other and you absolutely love to see it.
They’re another one of our Tinder success stories, which is always amazing, as someone who also hit the online dating lotto. They’re ALSO freaking beagle moms which is near and dear to my heart.
When I asked what made them pick me, they stated “We were drawn to you because you photograph LGBTQ+ couples so well.”
Please enjoy these absolute perfect angels and please don’t miss their champagne pop.

"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."
