Destiny reached out to me at the end of 2019. Life happened. Nothing came of it. Lennox reached out a few months later. Told me his fiancé, Destiny, wanted to get married and only wanted me as her photographer. I had booked their date, but Lennox said they’d make it happen.
A couple of e-mails back and forth and they’ve changed their date and I was a super secret surprise for Destiny’s birthday. Holy shit, right? I got to be a present. But the real gift? (Oh yeah, I’m going there) Having these two as clients.
Destiny gets me. She watches my stupid, goofy stories and the first thing that happened when I got there is she laughed at some bumble they made and said that I’d point it out on social media because that’s who I am. They know me and they like me. That’s so damn cool.
They come from conservative towns with conservative folx and are yet living their lives loud and proud and they’re just so. damn. cute. They’re so playful and they’ve worked damned hard to have their dream day. We’re in the middle of switching things up & making a day that makes sense for them, but in the mean time we’re just gonna celebrate these bad asses and their love for one another.
Can I get a hell yeah?

"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."
