Hi, I'm Taylor

IMG_1543.jpg

I was born on Vancouver Island and have lived here my whole life. 

I've had a camera in my hands for 10 years now and have had the blessed opportunity to capture weddings for the last 4.

 

I graduated high school fluent in French and English and also have a certificate in aesthetics. I have a dry sense of humour but I'm also a sucker for the mushy gushy stuff. 

My all time favourite thing to do is create. I love to try new things and meet new people, so photography has always been my go to creative outlet! My grandpa, one of my favorite people in the whole world, spent so much of my childhood taking pictures of me and my sister, and looking back at all those photos was what brought me to this amazing career and industry. I love having memories captured, so that's what I will do for you. I will cheer you on and hold your hand and fluff your dress or straighten that tie, because I'm not just a photographer. I'm your #1 cheerleader!

My husband and I met when we were 14 on a school field trip, and I think it was honestly game time from there. He's a metal head and an environment nut who loves the outdoors, and the sweetest guy I know.

We spent a lot of our early relationship long distance, but once high school was over we moved in together and started our secondary education and lived as starving broke students in a tiny 1 bedroom apartment in Nanaimo. We got married in June 2019, bought a house a month later, and we have now welcomed a beautiful baby girl into our family February 2021 

If you've made it this far then thank you! Thank you for taking the time to get to know me. I use photography to capture the moments and the people I meet because I love to tell stories.

I look forward to meeting you!
