JOSH

TAYLORRAE

I'm a desert-dwelling, chicken tender loving new mom who's always got her camera in hand. Some of my favorite things are hot chocolate, thrifting, DIY projects, singing WAY too loudly, serving in the college ministry at our church, and hanging out with my best friend, Joshua and our infant daughter, Lucy Rae.
 
I was born and raised in Arizona by my dad, the cowboy and my Texan mama. I got my bachelor's in Psychology and spent 3 years as a behavioral health tech/family specialist. Years before, I picked up a camera at 16 years old and fell in love. That girl had no idea that her passion would be a full time dream career and answer to prayer.

Pursuing photography is a gift because of the unique ways I get to serve people through it. I understand that photographing people is so much more than taking pretty photos; it's making the people who have trusted me in their most special moments feel comfortable, beautiful, and loved from behind the lens. 

Josh here! I have been blessed by meeting and marrying the gorgeous and talented TaylorRae, and being pulled into her orbit of creating and capturing amazing memories when we started working together in 2019.

I was born and raised in Oregon and made the move to Arizona when starting college. Throughout high school, I had a blast creating videos with friends - our productions always got us busting up laughing until we were red faced with tears streaming down. The joy and passion that developed then has followed me to today: getting the honor of capturing one of the most important days of a lifetime.

Nearly all of my time fits into these few categories: fixing up our house, discipling college students at our church, testing the capabilities of my muscular and cardiovascular systems (Crossfit style), editing wedding films, reading, and best of all, laughing and working with my amazing wife while getting to getting to raise our beautiful daughter together.

"TaylorRae was incredible to work with and the photos were truly incredible. She was great with communication and her photographer who took our photos was great at directing our photos and putting us at ease through the whole process. She was so positive and helpful and you could tell she loved her job! The turn around time was so quick and I loved every photo!" - HANNAH + KASEY

taylorrae

Oh hi again! Just as a reminder, I am the founder, co-owner, and lead photographer of TaylorRae Photo and Film.
I got my start in high school taking photos of graduating seniors and small families but jumped into couples and wedding photography in 2019 and never looked back.

My photography style is based on capturing the personalities of the couple in front of my camera. This means that sometimes my photos feel very high energy and playful and other will feel quiet and romantic. That's because no two couples are the same. The consistency you'll find is in the organic and story telling nature of every photo I send out.

I love my job because of the couples I get to serve not just on their wedding days but in the days, weeks, and months leading up to the first of their many Best Days Ever. Having a team means I'm able to serve more couples in the ways that I love most!

BASED: West Mesa, AZ + South Salem, OR, seasonally

SPECIAL SKILLS: Turning the "awkward" couple into the most relaxed and fun-loving couple in front of my camera, yelling at your family and friends on your wedding but in a *nice* way, being a place of calm AND excitement on your wedding day.
