I'm here, I'm queer, and I'm ready to party the night away with my people.

About Tay

Rocky Mountain National Park was way more beautiful than I could imagine.

When Maggie reached out and asked me to show her some landscapes I froze. I live in Kansas, all I’ve got are rolling hills occasionally! However, i’d photographed her sister’s wedding a couple years back so she decided she liked my style enough to bring me out to Colorado with her and her amazing family.

Maggie and Lance didn’t want to get married in front of a bunch of people. They are adventurous spirits who are wonderfully in love and are tons of fun and when they got married they only wanted their nearest and dearest there with them.

When I asked Maggie & Lance about their proposal, what stuck out to me most was “rain follows us”. We spent the whole day trying to plan around Estes Park rain, which was absolutely bananas.

RAIN IN ESTES PARK IS UNPREDICTABLE.

For a girl that’s never seen mountains before? It was crazy. The Ryan family is very familiar with Colorado, so they led me through how it’s best to just take it minute by minute and everyone has their own umbrellas just in case. Turns out we dodged the most of it even getting a beautiful rainbow.

Their wedding made me want to elope in the mountains as well, and I’m sure after these photos you’ll feel the same.

"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."
