capturing authentic joy in forever images of well-loved people

TaylorRae + Josh


We are a husband and wife, photo and video team who love to capture people as they are. We want our couples to look back at their favorite moments and remember the joy from the season of life they're in, not just being posed by a photographer. We take a lot of care to make our clients feel confident and comfortable with us every step of the process so they can not only like the way the look in the final products but feel loved along the way!

Outside of our business, we love cooking homemade meals for friends, going on bike rides, and searching for the sweetest thrift store finds! We are happiest when frolicking through God's creation especially while enjoying the company of friends and learning from their wisdom.

we're always
on the move

Josh more than TaylorRae usually...

Okay so besides Josh always working out (and TaylorRae trying to keep up) we are usually traveling as much as we're able. Josh's family of origin lives in Oregon so we're constantly going back and forth between our home in Tempe, Arizona and the Salem area in Oregon. Our favorite way to travel is road trips; we JAM out to our "scream a long" playlist (which features a lot of Taylor Swift) and have had the best relationship transforming conversations in the car.
If you want us to travel for your session or wedding...
we'll be there in a heart beat!

love looked like."

It's you. Whether you know it or not, you are loved by a God who died to know you. Through our knowledge of that, WE love you. We are forever in awe of the position and privilege we have to love you in such a special way by capturing special moments in your lives and making you feel cared for and comfortable in a situation that you might not naturally, i.e. with a camera in your face.

We believe in

Your wedding is so important - but your marriage is what matters.


We believe in the sanctity of marriage, and love to pray for and encourage our couples as they prepare for their wedding and future together. We remind our couples what we have learned ourselves: that the covenant between the two of you reflects the relationship between Christ and His Church. This means that when we love and pursue each other well, we make God look really good, and guess what? He is.
