Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography loves wedding bridal sessions and Thi’s bridal portraits at Birmingham Botanical Gardens were some of our 2015 favorites. We were thrilled that she wanted to incorporate a traditional ao dai Vietnamese wedding dress and hat, as well as a fairytale-worthy American dress, into the session. The ridiculously talented Mandy Busby created the stunning bouquet and boy was it a beauty. But that’s nothing unusual for this talented lady.

Our friend Melissa Moore Bogardus gave Thi a dreamy hair and make-up look. You can see why Melissa is sought-after for clients and magazines all over the place, and books up six months in advance.

We used a combination of medium-format film and digital photography to capture every moment of this session to its fullest potential. There’s a growing movement in wedding imagery called hybrid photography, referring to those of us who use the best of both worlds to give clients a range of positively stunning wedding photographs.

Clients sometimes ask us the purpose of a bridal session, especially when we take wedding gown photos on the wedding day. It’s a wonderful chance to do some creative, fashion-inspired photographs without the butterflies and time constraints of your wedding day. It’s also a great trial run for hair, makeup, the dress and shoes. You can see ahead of time if you want a little more lip color, a little less eye drama, the way your hair will hold up. You’ll see your  look ahead of time and be able make any necessary adjustments so your wedding day is perfect.

A bridal session is also a great chance to connect and bond with your photographers. The more comfortable you are, the more that confidence will show in your wedding photographs. And lastly, moms still love bridal portraits, y’all! They make sweet gifts for Mother’s Day, mom’s birthday, Christmas or just to say thank you for all that mothers do to help plan the weddings.

We appreciate you, Thi, for allowing us to be part of such a special time in your life. You were an exquisite bride.

The Sonnet House in Leeds absolutely made our week here at Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC when they recommended us for the fall wedding of their clients Amanda and Bo. It couldn’t have been more beautiful or more fabulous to photograph.

Amanda and Bo chose a wonderful team of wedding vendor pros to help make their special day unforgettable. Ellen at The Sonnet House did her usually incredible job helping bring their vision to life. The team included cakes by Olexa’s in Mountain Brook, florals and catering by The Sonnet House and a gorgeous vintage getaway car named Elizabeth from the terrific folks at Coats Classic Cars. Capturing every moment on video were our friends at Holloway Productions and AG Lighting lit everything to perfection.

These folks made us feel like family and we couldn’t be more honored to have shared such a special day of love and faith with you. We wish you all the happiness in the world as you start  your new lives together in Oklahoma.

Engagement at Nashville pedestrian bridge

Engagement at Nashville Pedestrian Bridge-16

Engagement at Nashville Pedestrian Bridge-01We think an engagement at Nashville pedestrian bridge is pretty cool, and Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography, LLC loved spending time with Savannah and Dylan to capture a segment of their extended engagement photo session in downtown Music City. If you’re keeping up, this is Part 3 of their engagement sneak peek! Can we say again what an absolute delight it is to photograph clients who are as into their engagement photos as we are, y’all?

You can also check out sneaks of their engagement photos in Leiper’s Fork and their engagement photos with their canoe on the Harpeth River in Franklin, both just outside Nashville, if you want to see more of the engagement yumminess. It’s such a treat to be able to get back to the city where Kelli lived and worked for four years and we first lived as newlyweds.

Needless to say, we can’t wait for Savannah’s bridal session and this cute couple’s wedding at Park Crest in Hoover, Ala. this summer.
