By: Rachel Bertone (Social Media Specialist at Daniel Taylor Photography)
When I began working with Daniel Taylor Photography, I was looking to expand my professional experience in social media and with being a recent college graduate, I’ll admit, a little extra income. What I didn’t expect was how great of an experience it would turn out to be. Within the past five months of working with the husband and wife duo, I’ve had the chance to get an inside prospective on the company. I can honestly say I’ve been blown away by their business practices. Not only does the team take amazing photos and work tirelessly, but they are also truly genuine people who care deeply for their clients. Whether it’s a gorgeous bridal portrait session in downtown Birmingham or an elaborate wedding that requires them to travel, Kelli and Daniel Taylor specialize in making wedding photography a positive and rewarding experience for the couple. They understand that while planning a wedding can be stressful, making a commitment with someone you love is a beautiful thing! And no one captures that love through photography better than DTP.
In having the privilege of writing numerous blog posts and preparing gorgeous photos, I’ve gotten a first-hand look at some of Daniel Taylor Photography’s breathtaking work. I’m a bit of a wedding blog junkie, and have to say that DTP is one of the best I’ve seen at capturing candid emotion. A couple’s first look, a bride before the ceremony, a couple’s whimsical, puppy-filled engagement session–it’s these special moments caught on film that a husband and wife will have to cherish forever. If that’s not the mark of a greatly skilled photographer, I don’t know what is. They also have an astounding eye for detail. With every wedding they photograph, I feel as though I was there–a perfect visual scrapbook. Here are a few of my absolute favorites:
Although I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting my soul mate yet for my own special day, I would jump at the chance to recommend Daniel Taylor Photography to anyone who is ready to tie the knot. In my opinion, having vendors who not only do great work, but also take the time to make their clients feel comfortable and essentially become friends with them, is one of the most important aspects of wedding planning. The team at Daniel Taylor Photography doesn’t know any other way.
