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.

fox hills wedding: rachel & zack

8.23.16 - weddings by Courtney

Everything about Rachel & Zack's wedding day sparkled from the bride and groom's stunning blue eyes to the bridesmaids' glittery Keds (which were my absolute favorite detail of the day.) The day started at the Livonia Marriott where the girls were excitedly getting ready. They looked adorable in their matching robes and I loved their pale yellow bridesmaid dresses and matching bouquets by Blumz. We got Rachel into her gown and wow did she look fabulous! Her ensemble was complete with a special veil from her friend. Fox Hills was the perfect venue for this outdoor summer affair. The garden ceremony was full of laughter and joy which continued into the reception. The pavilion couldn't have been more charming with the twinkling lights and sequined linens, and I loved all of the outdoor games! (Who doesn't love some corn hole?) This wedding was truly one of a kind, and every little detail was unique to Rachel and Zack. Speaking of unique, I loved that they opted for a wedding pie instead of the traditional cake! I don't know if Achatz Handmade Pie Co. bakes many "wedding pies," but they sure did a great job with this one! These two danced the night away under the stars, and we snapped some great nighttime shots before we had to part ways. Congratulations you two!

oakland hills country club wedding: jenna & chris

8.23.16 - weddings by Kristin G.

When I arrived at Oakland Hills Country Club and witnessed the pouring of pink bubbly, I knew we were in for a super fun day! I loved that Jenna chose a svelte, streamlined gown that fit her flawlessly and only chose earrings as an accent. She also asked her maids to keep their jewelry simple and I adored their flowing, pink dresses and beautiful bouquets by Breath of Spring. The high fashion choices continued when we arrived at Holy Name for the ceremony and I saw the groomsmen wearing blue blazers, light blue seersucker pants and brown loafers sans socks. This was one heckava good looking group! We headed over to Cranbrook for portraits which is the campus where Chris and several of his groomsmen went to school. Their reception room was absolutely stunning, and I loved their cake made by Oakland Hills. Lee's Specialty made their gorgeous invitation which photographed beautifully. I love a good toast, and let me tell you I belly laughed along with the rest of the room as I heard some of their antics. After dinner The Killer Flamingos got the party rockin’ and when Sparty arrived, it put everything over the top. A big congratulations, you two! xo

colony club wedding: lauren & matt

8.18.16 - weddings by Jen

The day started with Lauren and her bridesmaids getting ready in the most beautiful suite at the Detroit Marriott in the Renaissance Center. There was so much natural light shining through, which made things perfect us, as well as her makeup artist. Her bridesmaids looked amazing in their matching silky robes, and Lauren looked like the picture of perfection in her delicate white outfit.
Though we felt a few sprinkles early on, the weather was on our side for Lauren and Matthew’s wedding day. Their ceremony at Holy Family Church was beautiful and heartfelt. Afterwards, we stopped by the Detroit Institute of Arts for some photos of the happy couple and their bridal party before we headed to the Colony Club, where the festivities were already underway. The room looked gorgeous! Mannino's made the adorable cake, and New Creations Flower Co. did the AMAZING flowers. After their first three dances, which were performed by Matthew’s brother on vocals and guitar, we snuck outside for a few more photos with just the two of them before heading back in to enjoy the rest of the reception. Let me tell you…their friends know how to party! The dance floor was jam packed the entire evening and everyone looked like they were having a fabulous time! They ended things on a perfect note with a sparkler exit, which left everyone with smiles on their faces. Congratulations you two, your wedding day was a blast and I’m so happy to have had the opportunity to capture it for you!

orchard lake country club wedding: brooke & joe

8.9.16 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

The first thing I noticed when I arrived to Orchard Lake Country Club to photograph Brooke getting ready was that there were so many bridesmaids, like everywhere (12 to be exact), but after being around Brooke and her friends for only a few minutes I could see why she had so many bridesmaids… she simply has so many good friends! We had two hours for getting ready photos, which is more than I normally have and it was such a joy to have that much time so that we weren’t rushed. After the getting ready photos, we did some lovely photos of Brooke with her bridesmaids and flower girl, and a sweet first look moment with her dad before we were off to the Sacred Heart Academy for the ceremony. Not only was their ceremony beautiful, but it was made extra special by the fact that Joe’s brother had recently completed his studies to become a Priest, and Joe's wedding was the very first wedding he had officiated! I’ve seen A LOT of wedding ceremonies and can accurately say that he did a GREAT job! After the ceremony the festivities continued with a cocktail hour on the back patio of the gorgeous Orchard Lake Country Club while we did a few more photos of the bridal party. Once inside, the party kicked off with some great toasts (oh man, I really love when I can feel how much the bride and groom are loved as the toasts are said), and then the cutting of the beautiful cake. Everything about their decor was perfect, including the amazing flowers and decor by Christopher & Company, and their band had everyone dancing constantly. Attending the wedding were a few past KT&CO clients, and it was super fun to get to quickly catch up with them. I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter and more adorable couple than Brooke and Joe, and I wish these two all the best!
