It varies. 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.
How many photos should we expect?
A second photographer is like an insurance policy. 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.
Do you suggest a second photographer?
Just call me speedy Gonzalez. 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 3o days. Other galleries are within 14!
What's your turn-around time?
Backups on backups on backups. 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.
What if your camera malfunctions during your day?
Abso-freaking-lutely. Photos with me are very laid back. Don't worry about knowing what faces to make or things like that. I will give you prompts like ways to make your partner laugh, or sentimental things that may cause a tear or two.
We don't know how to pose, will you help us?
Anyone who isn't a tech nerd, profesional equipment!
Anyone who wants a little more, I shoot on two Canon R6s, a 24-70, a 50mm, a 24mm, an 85mm, a 135mm, and a 40mm tilt shift.
My lights are all Flashpoint and I bring several to every wedding so I'm ready for anything.
What kind of equipment do you use?

"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."
