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!
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!
The big day is finally here!! My goal on your wedding day is to ensure that it is as fun, easy and stress-free as possible. I will be there to capture every moment, from beginning to end, so that you have memories to last a lifetime to come.
You can expect to receive your finished gallery approximately three weeks following your wedding day. Your beautifully displayed online gallery is where you are able to download, share and print all of the high-resolution digital files. They are backed up for 10 years online, so your gallery won’t disappear on you! You will also have an easy-to-use mobile app so that you can keep your photos with you wherever you are.
If you choose a wedding package with a custom designed leather album, we will begin the album design process after your receive your digital gallery. We will work together to create beautifully designed spreads, choose cover options and finalize details for your album before it’s printed and shipped directly to you.
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!
Hope is such an amazing photographer. She took our engagement and wedding photos and they could not be more perfect! She is a complete delight to work with! She answered all our questions from the day I booked our wedding until after! I had so many guests comment on how amazing she is and how impressed they are with her work. The pictures she provided were absolutely stunning and she got them back to us so quickly! Hope works quickly and efficiently and is super awesome to work with! I could not have chosen a better photographer for my wedding!
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.
“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.”
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)!
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.
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!
