THE HOPE TAYLOR WEDDING

Experience

My responsibilities as your photographer stretch far beyond capturing beautiful images on your wedding day.

 I strive to make your wedding experience as effortless and enjoyable as possible from the moment you book to the final delivery of your custom leather album. Take a peek into the Hope Taylor wedding experience below:

Booking and planning

Upon inquiry, you will recieve my bridal pricing guide with all of the details you need to know about pricing and package options. Once things are booked and we’re officially official, we will begin planning all of the fun details for your engagement shoot! You will also receive the one-of-a-kind Hope Taylor Bridal Guide with 60+ pages of helpful information: what to wear, how to structure your timeline, how to prep for your big day and more!

The fun begins! After working together to choose the perfect locations, we will spend an hour together to shoot your engagement photos! Your only job during our session is to love each other - I will coach you through posing for the entire shoot. This is a time for us to get to know one another, get comfortable working together and allow you to spend time together in front of the camera with no stress! 

ENGAGEMENT SESSION

Final skype chat

As your wedding day approaches, I will be available to help with anything and everything you need - vendor recommendations, timeline preparation, planning suggestions and more.  When we are just a few weeks out, we will plan a Skype chat to finalize timelines and answer last-minute questions. That way, you can wake up on your wedding day entirely stress free and ready to marry that man of your dreams!

FROM MY COUPLES

I booked Hope the second she said she was not yet booked on our wedding date.When working with her for both our engagement session and wedding, it was amazing how easy and comfortable she made us feel. Of all our vendors, Hope Taylor was our favorite. I cannot speak more highly of her talent and professionalism. She amazes me!”

“Of all our vendors, Hope Taylor was our favorite.”

–Genevieve Bryan

- 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.” 

“Working
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

I can not even put into words how amazing Hope and her photography skills are. As anyone who has ever been married knows, it's stressful picking out vendors. When you find one that actually makes you feel like a friend and not just a business transaction you hold onto that. I will forever hold onto my experience with Hope. She is professional, kind, caring, calm but courageous and just flat out amazing.

“When you find one that actually makes you feel like a friend and not just a business transaction you hold onto that”

–Jessica Moore

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!”

CHELSEY AND MARC

Paradise Island, Bahamas

Chelsey and Marc's destination wedding day at Atlantis Resort on Paradise Island was an absolute dream. Their laid-back timeline allowed for lots of details and getting ready portraits, their first look made my heart melt and their adventurous personalties allowed for some amazing portrait locations at sunset! 

HEATHER AND ERIC

Fredericksburg, Virginia

Heather and Eric's wedding day was hosted in downtown Fredericksburg, VA and stole my heart with it's historic charm. Their luxury details and beautiful peony bouquets were the perfect contrast for the historical church and reception venue. There was a torrential downpour during the ceremony, but even the rain couldn't stop the joy on this big day!

KYLE AND EMILY

 Washington D.C.

Kyle and Emily's luxury wedding at Salamander Resort was a favorite for so many reasons! The gold sequin bridesmaids gowns, sweet family and sunset portraits at golden hour, just to name a few. 

Mel and brian

Gainesville, VA 

Mel and Brian's stunning summer wedding was so uniquely beautiful! Mel is an earth science teacher and rock collector, so they incorporated royal blue geodes throughout their details to personalize their wedding day. I couldn't love it more if I tried!
