Announcing... our rebrand!

10.1.15 - News

The two photography companies owned by Kristen Taylor (Kristen Taylor Photography and Kindred by Kristen Taylor) have now combined into one larger company called KRISTEN TAYLOR & CO.

At the core of Kristen Taylor & Co are four stylish, sophisticated, and artistic photographers who truly love to photograph weddings, our talented support crew of Second Photographers and Assistants, and our amazing office and post-production crew. We all have very high standards for every aspect of our lives, and we hold ourselves to those same high standards as we provide wedding photography in our Modern Romance style.

We are more than a one-photographer small business, but we are also not a huge and impersonal machine. Instead we incorporate the best traits of each, and we combine them in a way that still builds a personal connection between each client and their photographer, but which also benefits from the efficiency, experience, and high-quality customer service of a larger and more established company.

While we have four Lead Photographers at present time, we are working to build up to more with the goal of becoming even larger so we can offer even more high-quality choices, like the Nordstrom of wedding photography. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, please see the HIRING page of our website.

The Baronette Wedding: Jessica & Michael

12.5.17 - weddings by Courtney

Jessica and Michael are the type of couple that just make the world smile. In fact, when the rain started falling the sun couldn’t help but peek back out and create the most beautiful double rainbow you’ve ever seen! It was such a good day.
When I arrived at the Baronette Renaissance hotel, the girls were ready to go. They had the prettiest floral robes, but looked even more stunning in their blush dresses. As the ladies finished getting ready they happily accepted a photo challenge from the guys (to recreate one they had done). It was obvious we were in for some fun.
Jessica looked so beautiful in her corset laced dress with retro styled hair and rose gold (love!) jewelry and Michael so stylish in a navy suit and brown shoes. Both of which, according to him, were ultra-comfy. Who says you have to sacrifice style for comfort? I loved that the ladies switched to converse shoes because they definitely needed them on the dance floor, which was packed throughout the night thanks to Mike Staff Productions.

Congratulations to you both. I wish nothing but a lifetime of happiness to you both.

detroit athletic club wedding: Chelsea & Christian

12.4.17 - weddings by Kristin G.

When we arrived at the Detroit Athletic Club, I was wondering if Chelsea was going to brave the chilly autumn air and head outdoors for portraits. It was cold, but the sun was popping out and you know I was hoping to get some of that beautiful light for her portraits. I was thrilled when she said we should go for it, so after she donned her simple, but oh-so-elegant gown and killer blue jeweled Badgley Mischka pumps, we headed outside and rocked those portraits. Before we knew it, it was time to wrap up and head over to St. John Armenian Church for a traditional Armenian ceremony. I feel so lucky when I get to experience different cultures and I LOVED the uniqueness of Chelsea and Christian’s ceremony, especially when these two were crowned King and Queen. Following the ceremony, we shot a few quick portraits outside of the church and then headed back over to the DAC where we were able to get some rooftop action overlooking the gorgeous lit city of Detroit. They entered the reception room to a traditional Armenian dance (so fun!) and the evening continued to rock on with the stylings of The Dan Rafferty Band intermixed with the music from the Armenian Band. The DAC looked gorgeous as usual, with flowers by Breath of Spring. Finally, right before it was time to go, we were able to sneak downstairs and have some fun shooting some serious portraits with the ornate details within the DAC. A huge congrats goes out to this sweet couple! xo

stoney creek engagement session: Alison & Mike

11.28.17 - engagements by Kristin G.

I was jealous that the weather for Alison+Mike’s engagement session was so perfect as I tried to shoot my own family portraits just days before also at Stony Creek Metropark and I received wind and hail! These two simply looked fantastic and I was crushing on Alison’s coat, which was perfect for fall portraits (that waistline!). And while these two did rock out their portraits with ease, I think we all know that their sweet pup may have stolen the show. Alison’s smile is infectious and she lights up around Mike; they are so sweet together and I had such a good time walking around the park and getting to know them. I’m so looking forward to shooting their wedding come summer! A big congrats, you two! xo

The Mirage Wedding: Alexis & Mike

11.21.17 - weddings by Kristin G.

I’ve mentioned this many times, but one of my favorite decisions a bride can make is to choose to get ready in their family home. It’s just so meaningful to pull up to the house and see the people pouring in and out and the excitement buzzing. Now, I have known this incredible bride since our childhood so my natural instinct is to refer to her as Alexis. However, I feel like I’m the only one, so I will tell you that when I saw Lexi that morning, she looked stunning with her dark hair swept back and smoky eyes. After getting into her gown in her childhood bedroom (LOVE), we headed over to the Grosse Pointe War Memorial for her first look with her groom and for their portraits. Mike looked incredibly handsome and he was definitely ready to see his beautiful bride and begin their day together. I loved that we had full access to the War Memorial and were able to not only take gorgeous portraits outside, but also some stellar shots inside the ornate interior rooms. Before we knew it we were off to the church for a heartfelt ceremony and then over to The Mirage where the room was completely transformed and Lexi’s vision was breathtaking. The head table was anchored by sweeping white fabric which lent itself to a Grecian vibe. String lights were strewn overhead and the tables were adorned with candlelight, and beautiful flowers by Viviano's. The evening continued after dinner with dancing and music by The Block Party, ouzo shots, a gown change by the bride and, finally, a recreation of an image that Lexi adored from her parents’ wedding. It was truly a day to remember. A huge congrats to this deserving couple! xo
