Daniel Taylor Photography is so thrilled to be featured on Weddinggawker once again! We appreciate this fantastic wedding photo site so much; it’s a must-visit for any bride looking for gorgeous inspiration. Our destination engagement photo session in the beautiful NYC was chosen and highlighted, and we couldn’t be prouder. With all of the lights and charm of New York City, this was a stunning backdrop for this destination engagement session of New Yorkers S.T. and T.Z. Check out the rest of this stylish couple’s engagement session in NYC.
Daniel Taylor Photography is tickled to showcase the finale to the beautiful wedding of Allison and Alan’s classic Southern wedding was carried on to the Vestavia Country Club in Vestavia, Alabama.
Everyone, including us, was awe-struck at how elegant and gorgeous the reception was. And the team at VCC always ensures delicious food, wonderful hospitality and an incredible wedding event.
We worked with Alan and Allison from the very beginning with their engagement photo session. We were so thrilled to be able to capture their entire wedding day.
We’d like to give a HUGE thank you to M. Elizabeth Events and owner Meghan Cease for recommending us to her brother and sister-in-law. Every detail of this wedding reception was perfect. We worked alongside some of our favorite vendors that including VCC, which also provided delectable food, Barb Sullivan of barbscakes.com for the gorgeous and absolutely incredible cakes, our dear friends at Holloway Video Productions, the always-impeccable James Meredith of Birmingham Bridal Carriages, who brought in the lovely Helen, and simply dreamy florals by Kathy Miller.
Congratulations once again Alan and Allison, and thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special day.
Be sure to check out Allison and Alan’s Swann Lake Stables engagement photo session, Park Lane wedding dinner rehearsal, and their Samford University Reid Chapel wedding ceremony, too, as well as Allison’s jaw-dropping Shoal Creek bridal portrait session.
Rosewood Hall at SoHo in Homewood, Ala. is a great wedding venue that we at Daniel Taylor Photography would be happy to recommend any day. The chic location and terrific service are top-notch. But we know that without awesome people working their tails off behind the scenes, venues wouldn’t be half as amazing as they are. That’s where Karrie York comes in. As Rosewood Hall’s event director, Karrie is consistently diligent on creating the perfect day for clients and making sure everything runs smoothly. And after seeing her work, we’ll say she’s pretty darn good at it!
We’ve gotten to know Karrie better over the past year and can attest to what a genuine, professional and sweet person she is. Plus, she’s risen to become one of the youngest event directors in town! She’s become a fan of our work as well, which gets us super excited! In fact, we were more than flattered when Karrie decorated her office with one of our photos after becoming events director at Rosewood Hall. Rosewood Hall as also used a Daniel Taylor Photography photo in some of their print advertisements. We were so flattered when Karrie asked us to photograph some head shots for her, which turned out beautifully. How could they not?
Thanks for all your hard work Karrie! We look forward to working with you even more in the future.
Daniel Taylor Photography can’t say enough good things about our wonderful hometown of Birmingham, Ala, but one of the absolute best parts of our job is getting to travel all over the Southeast and beyond to capture gorgeous weddings! Whether we’re headed to the bustling, soulful city of New Orleans, or an easygoing beach wedding on the Florida coast getaway of Alys Beach, we love seeing new places and using the surroundings to take fabulous photos. Destination engagements and weddings are tons of fun for the bride and groom, too! Some couples choose locations where they already had a connection to the city, while others pick places they’ve always wanted to go to. It can make an exciting wedding day that much more special and an extra treat for family. Truth be told, it’s also sometimes nice to pick neutral ground for families who live in different cities — takes away some stress.
Here’s a look at some of Daniel Taylor Photography’s favorite destination weddings and engagements:
We were beyond stoked to fly to the fabulous New York City for a destination engagement session with one of our 2011 couples, S.E. and T.Z. This travel-loving duo wanted an engagement session in NYC, but were married in Birmingham. They were such a creative pair, and a total pleasure to work with. We buzzed all around the big apple to find the perfect photo spots, and Daniel showed off some of his best skills with the night session. Pretty cool, huh?
Heather and John had their wedding ceremony and engagement session in historic New Orleans, La. The gorgeous engagement session was in NOLA’s famous French Quarter and Garden District, while the wedding was held at New Orleans City Park. Honestly y’all, it couldn’t have been more beautiful! Despite the heat, Heather and John were so great to work with, and we loved being a part of their wedding. The photos turned out great, and the couple’s lovely nuptials ended up on national wedding blog, Glamour and Grace.
For Emily and Blane’s wedding, we headed to Florida’s amazing Emerald Coast, to Alys Beach, which is about half an hour west of Panama City Beach. With the sprawling sand and crystal blue ocean, Alys Beach is a perfect spot for a beach ceremony, and Emily and Blane were such awesome clients. Even when a storm rolled in on their big day, it didn’t keep them from having fun and really enjoying themselves. And they’re crazy dog people, just like us! How could we not love them?! Their destination Alys Beach wedding and Fonville Press reception was published on the online version of Florida Bride Magazine!
Paige and Brent’s destination wedding in Lake Martin, Ala. at the Children’s Harbor Lighthouse was such a fun, easy celebration. The lake itself provided a prime backdrop for gorgeous wedding pictures. Paige looked stunning on her big day, and the couple’s lighthearted reception at The Ridge Club made the trip more than worthwhile!
The most recent destination wedding for DTP was Holly and Murray’s fairytale ceremony and reception at The Grand Hotel and Resort in Point Clear, Ala. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for the seaside soiree. Holly and Murray are so obviously in love, it made our job even easier to capture heartfelt, memorable moments of the lovebirds. The lush scenery of The Grand and the beautiful ocean in the background made for absolutely stunning images.
It’s always fun when I get to go back to my journalism roots and write and article and Daniel is the photographer. We got that chance when the cool folks at Birmingham magazine let us team up for an article on Chef Rob McDaniel at Lake Martin’s SpringHouse restaurant for the June issue, which features fun stuff on lake living.
A big thanks to Julie Keith, Alec Harvey, and Carla Jean Whitley from the magazine for features us in the Dinner Hour section. And we’re just totally digging the layout. Some great things have happened to Birmingham mag in 2012, and we’re looking forward to continued greatness.
