I'm Hope Taylor

A chicken nugget-loving, peony-obsessed, travel-addicted twenty-something located in Fredericksburg, VA. Oh - I’m a photographer and educator, too.

I’ve always been a big dreamer. So, when I made the decision to revoke my admission at my selected college for business and pursue photography full time at only 17 years old, it felt like exactly what I was supposed to be doing. Now, I have the privilege of photographing weddings all around the globe while equipping other photographers across the country to do the same. And, most importantly, you can typically find me in the Chik-fila-A drive thru or at Krispy Kreme. Welcome to my little corner of the internet, I'm excited to get to know each other!

Senior Posing & Experience


- Laura Hendrie

You created beauty from the simplest of surroundings. The lighting was brilliant and our most precious moments were captured with flawless precision. We are very pleased with our experience and it has been our pleasure to repeatedly refer our friends to you.

“our most precious moments were captured with flawless precision.”

“Working with Hope was a dream, from my first contact email I sent that day after I got engaged to the sweetest package I received from her after our wedding; everything she does is with love and a passion for business that I have never come across before.” 

with Hope was a dream!”

Alex Telgar

Hope was so energetic and genuinely wanted to be a part of OUR wedding day! And the reception, oh my stars, I couldn't imagine her NOT at the reception. Everyone raved about our pictures (and still do)!

“Working with Hope was the best experience I could have ever imagined!”

Kelsie Howard

We chose Hope to be our wedding photographer because not only are her images beautiful, but her passion for photography & people shine when she is shooting a wedding. She made us feel so comfortable and our wedding day was so much fun, no stress at all! 

“We are so blessed she was able to travel with us and be a part of our wedding day!”
