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.

planterra wedding: haley & evan

10.20.16 - weddings by Kristin G.

It is safe to say that my 2016 wedding season went out with a bang! The weather was ideal, Haley+Evan looked spectacular, the bridal party rocked (!!!) and the wedding was held at one of my favorite venues, Planterra. Not only did Haley look gorgeous in her gown, but how awesome that it was her brother who did the girls’ fabulous make-up! She looked flawless and not everyone can get professional touch-ups throughout their wedding day! After an emotional first-look between the bride+groom (I cannot even deny it, first looks are my fave for this very reason!), we headed into downtown Birmingham for portraits prior to arriving at Planterra. I'm a sucker for metallics and Haley’s gold accents made my heart happy! Her bold florals, also done by Planterra, were a breath of fresh air, the mini-potted succulents as escort cards were fantastic, the cake by Sweet Heather Anne was adorable, and I know how much time and effort it took for the amount of detail that personalized this stunning reception. As always it was a pleasure to work with Lee Thomas Films. This wedding was a perfect start to a lifetime full of happiness! A BIG congratulations to the both of you! Although my season was cut short as my husband and I are expecting our second babe around Halloween, I’m already excited when I think about my debut for what is sure to be a rocking NYE wedding at the Colony Club. Such a wonderful 2016 season and I owe it to all my incredible couples! xo

stony creek engagement session: jessica & ryan

10.19.16 - engagements by Jen

What can I say about Jessica and Ryan's engagement session at Stony Creek other than it was a blast, and getting to hang out with them left me with a smile on my face for the rest of the day. We went to a few different spots within the park for photos, and I loved their total enthusiasm and trust for doing whatever crazy thing I asked them to do (like when I had them get into the middle of some wild flowers to get that perfect shot.) These two are the real deal. Their love for each other is so apparent once you see them together, and they made my job so easy just by being themselves. I am so beyond excited to spend their wedding day with them in March.

detroit engagement session: lora & mike

10.19.16 - engagements by Courtney

Lora and Mike started their engagement session in Belt Alley. As we made our way to the roof Lora said "oh look, that's where it all began!" In the background was the building where they both work and met each other. How fitting and adorable! Lora and Mike did so great during their session and had a great idea to walk around the block to a new mural. I always love discovering new photo spot, and it was so cool to see some new things popping up around the city. I had a great time with this fantastic couple, and I'm looking forward to their big day!

verona hills golf club wedding: shannon & brian

10.19.16 - weddings by Courtney

It's not often that the first chance I get to meet a bride and groom is on their actual wedding day, but from the moment I met Shannon + Brian I knew it was going to be great! I started with Shannon and the girls at her aunt's house in Bad Axe, where Shannon is originally from. The house was filled with people and overflowing with love and excitement, and this tone carried on throughout the entire day. Their ceremony and reception were at the Verona Hills Golf Club. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical that the weather would cooperate for their outdoor ceremony (it had been pouring the entire day), but as soon as we arrived the clouds parted and made for a beautiful sunny afternoon. I have to say, Brian had the best reaction I've ever seen to his bride coming down the aisle with a very audible "woo hoo," and a fist pump. I don't think there was a dry eye as this couple exchanged the sweetest vows. After the ceremony we headed to some pretty amazing photo locations. Our first stop was at Shannon's Uncle's farm, which was the perfect spot for some indoor/outdoor barn shots, and serious kudos to Shannon for climbing up on a hay bale in her wedding dress! Our second stop was the adorable Country Village where everywhere we looked there were cute cottages, gardens, and antiques. I could have spent hours there. My favorite spot of the day was in front of a rustic cottage with a moss-covered roof. Back at the reception the room was filled with adorable rustic decor, good food, and great company. Congratulations to you two! I am so glad I got the spend the day with such a wonderful couple, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
