HOWDY. i’m taylor.
the visual documentation of human life has always been fascinating to me. growing up, i always found myself looking at old family photo albums. i started documenting my own stories with disposable cameras. my hobby slowly turned into something bigger. i'm just happy that i get to meet people & document milestones in their lives. each person i meet, is like a breath of fresh air. i’m here for the authentic souls. the laid-back couples. for backyard weddings & small elopements. for dreamers & big wanderers. i’m here to laugh with you & let you be yourself. i accept you as you are. oh, & i’m definitely here to get your angles. to be weird with you. to celebrate you & all you’ve accomplished. i’m here to capture memories you can look back on & cherish for the rest of your life. sometimes memories fade, but your magic does not. i'm here to preserve that for you the best way i know how.
professional daydreamer. enneagram type 4. empath af.
when i'm not working on projects, i am probably thrifting, diy-ing, or hanging out with my amazing husband, preston, & our 3 crazy cats.
down for a good adventure. equally down to stay at home & chill.
i have sentimental & observant tendencies, so i have definitely found my purpose in life. shooting low-key weddings, seniors, college grads, & family sessions are some of my favorite things to capture. it's pretty much a grand time always.
the lady Wilde is more than just a brand. is it my outlet for creative expression.
it is my home & it is my art.
