In the early fall there are sunflower fields and in the winter it’s still cold, yet charming. It was the perfect spot for Katy & Tim to tie the knot in front of their most adored friends and family. This was truly the most upbeat and charisma filled wedding that I photographed this year and I don’t think I ever stopped smiling. The rain never put a damper on anyone’s spirit and in fact gave us an excuse to use some adorable bubble umbrellas.
Katy even gave me the best answers in her pre-wedding questionnaire I’ve ever received. In order to save some of her sanity, Katy and Tim were married earlier this year. Shannon, the groom’s sister, told me Tim spent the past couple of weeks driving her crazy. He would tease that he would say “I don’t” because they were already married. When I asked Katy what she would do different if she were to plan another wedding she said, “I would have hired a wedding planner and an extra therapist.”
You would have never thought that Katy was anything less than completely excited about her wedding day. She spent the day smiling, hugging her bridesmaids, loving on all the family that showed up for her, and twerking better than I probably ever could. I was and am so honored that I was able to spend such an amazing day with her. Congratulations to the happy newlyweds and to everyone reading, scroll these images and I challenge you to do so without smiling once.

"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."
