I have been the owner and photographer of my own business since I was 16 years old. Now known as TaylorRae Photo and Film, I am so beyond bless to work side by side with my husband shooting weddings and couples exclusively.
Starting out so young, I did it all backwards, making a lot of mistakes a long the way. Ever since it clicked and I figured out the strategies that actually work, I have built an established, profitable, and an exponentially thriving business and I want to help you do it right from the start. And I'll tell you right now, it starts with client experience. Giving my own clients the best experience possible and teaching other business owners to do the same is what lights me up inside.
"She’s taught me how to work my camera to the best of its ability, the rules when framing photographs, and how to communicate with my clients well! She’s patient, kind, and just SO understanding. I would not be where I am now in my business if it wasn’t for her and it’s literally only been a few months! She’s amazing and seriously, the progress and improvement I’ve made with her is ASTONISHING. 1000000000/10 would recommend TaylorRae as a photography mentor."
"I needed help with my wedding packages, how to book more weddings, what to do when I book a wedding, and so on and so forth. TaylorRae walked me through the whole wedding process, I had so much fun, and I think my business benefited a ton! TaylorRae is the wedding QUEEN! She’s super knowledgable, very approachable, and bubbly! I thrive off the environment that she provides! I learned so much from her and I benefited so much from this mentorship and I would highly recommend any photographer to do a mentorship with TaylorRae! "
"TaylorRae has been so helpful in teaching me some of the ways to effectively use social media and digital design to further my small business. I've come leaps and bounds in the last year through our conversations. She's a great person to have on your team. Also, her positive vibes are so encouraging - especially when you're first starting out!"
I was struggling with clients ghosting me and the client experience that I offer. Everything about the experience was great. Super thorough as always! Your wisdom in any area is great and I know I can trust you. I felt heard and you accommodated and you helped me change my process perfectly. I highly recommend you and would schedule more sessions in the future hands down! I’ve learned so much from you.
"I have worked with dozens of photographers, but my experiences with TaylorRae have been the most valuable. I have watched her effortlessly pose and give direction to couples to capture the most romantic and natural pictures. At my most recent wedding, I was able to utilize all of the amazing tips and tricks I gleaned from Taylor Rae on posing, to give this bride the stunning photos she had dreamed of! I never knew how much I would need these skills, but I’m so glad I had taken mental notes while watching TaylorRae in action!"
