2021 Best of Weddings Hope Taylor Photography


These posts are so special to me every single year. It’s one of my favorite ways to reflect on the last 365 days, and to curate the work that I’m the most PROUD of after an entire year of shooting. The last two years have been weird as photographers amidst the pandemic…and it can be easy to get so caught up in the “busy” that I forget to actually be excited about the work I’m doing in the moment. It’s also so easy to forget some of the beautiful sessions or weddings I captured all the way back in January or February…I uncovered some favorite images that I forgot I even took this year!! These “best of” images will be shared in 3 categories: seniors, couples and weddings.

Today I’ll be sharing my favorite WEDDING images from the entire year of 2021. Some of these are my favorite because they are technically beautiful. Some are in this post because they were really hard to shoot in the moment (HELLOOOOO crazy lighting, cluttered bridal suites and insane weather)…or maybe I just feel like I truly captured the JOY my clients were feeling on their big day in a natural way. These images will consist of details, portrait, getting ready, ceremony AND reception images. It’s the longest of the “best of” posts…but with good reason!! That’s why I saved it for last! Enjoy scrolling through!

This was my very first wedding of the year and it was SO beautiful!!

We snuck away from the reception and drove all the way to the front of the venue to capture the last bit of glowing sunset light. I’m so glad we did!!!

A favorite bridal portait of all-time!!!

A surprise firework exit in the RAIN!!! So many factors that made this hard to shoot…but I got so many images I love out of it!

Sweet father-daughter moments and a beautiful, intimate chapel.

A perfectly-timed reception photo is always so fun!! Haha!

The VIEW though!!!

The sweetest mid-ceremony moment.
