 Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography had the privilege of photographing  the gorgeous Ryan and Brent for their downtown Birmingham engagement session, y’all. And boy, do these two love photos, making for some super-happy photographers.

Ryan is a med school student and Brent is an accountant and they are tying the knot at Woodrow Hall in December. The cute couple found us through Alabama Magazine‘s wedding edition, where we had a number of real weddings from 2012 featured. We’re so glad they found us.

You’d never know it from the photos, but it was seriously cold the day of the session! One of those crazy spring freezes we had here in Birmingham. But Ryan and Brent were such great sports. It was all about getting great photos. We think they were channeling a little James Bond kinda style, don’t you agree?

We want to give a huge thank you to James Coats of Coats Classic Cars for bringing one of the newest members of the Coats family, a Rolls Royce named Caroline, to the photo session, and to Charm for the use of that adorable bike. Beauty extraordinaire Melissa Moore Bogardus knocked it out of the park with Ryan’s hair and makeup.

This type of engagement session is pure inspiration for us here at DTP. The greatest compliment was when some of their Facebook friends told them they thought they were looking at a high-fashion ad, then realized it was them in the photos! That’s what we love to hear, folks.

Congratulations Ryan and Brent! We can’t wait for your wedding!

Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC In Wedding Dog Book Featured in People

Daniel Taylor Photography is over the moon y’all! We are so thrilled to share with you that we’re being featured in an Australian wedding book showcasing pretty dogs in weddings, called “Wedding Dogs: A Celebration of Pure Muttrimony.” And equally  exciting is that the book was mentioned in the most recent issue of People!

Daniel Taylor Photography

Daniel Taylor Photography is featured in a new wedding book, “Wedding Dogs,” that is recognized in the latest issue of People magazine.

We were approached by the Aussie author, Katie Preston Toepfer, after she saw some of our photos from our lovely 2012 bride Angela’s bridal session at B&A Warehouse with her cutie-pie dogs, Shelby and Ally. Katie invited us to participate in the project and we were completely stoked. This is so special for DTP, especially because of our Australian roots. You all know that Daniel is a pure blood Aussie, but Kelli’s mother is also an Aussie. Kelli and Daniel were married in Australia! You also know how crazy we are for dogs in weddings. What could be more perfect?

The People article showcases a few of the fabulous photos in the book and you’ll be able to see our gorgeous bride when the book comes out on April 16th, here in the US. It’s available for pre-order on Amazon.com. Be sure to grab a copy y’all!

Wedding at Aldridge Gardens in Birmingham, AL

Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography was overly excited about sweet couple Amanda and Allen’s wedding at Aldridge Gardens in Hoover, Ala. Allen is the beloved vet to our dear pups, Jenna and Scarlett, and Amanda is a super-cool librarian in Hoover.

We had a blast capturing the duo’s big day, and folks around Birmingham love this adorable couple as well. Their Sloss Furnaces and Railroad Park engagement photos received more “Likes” on Facebook than any engagement or wedding we’ve ever done! Amanda claims it’s because people love “love over 40.”

The wedding at Aldridge Gardens was even more special because Allen’s daughters, Sophie and Madeline were included in every aspect. They served as the “Best (Wo)man” and “Maid of Honor,” helped them cut the cake, and even walked down the aisle with Allen and Amanda. It was an incredible way to blend a family and start a new chapter together.

The lovely autumn flowers were provided by our friends at Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market in Homewood and the yummy cake was from Olexa‘s in Mountain Brook. Hair and make-up was from our good friend Melissa Moore Bogardus.

We wish these two a lifetime of happiness and are honored to have captured their special day.
