Porsche Club Driver’s Event Photos from Barber Motorsports

Daniel had the terrible, terrible job of spending the day at Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Ala, photographing another Porsche Driver’s Education extravaganza. I know, it’s a tough job for a guy who adores most things automotive.

Ff you want to hear grown men as excited as 9-year-old boys at Christmas, talk to these DE participants a few days later about ordering posters of themselves for their offices and dens. It’s really, really fun to be able to provide that kind of service for our clients who love our photography.

The Porsche DE events are for driving enthusiasts who come in from around the country to improve the driving skills on a professional track. It’s a weekend of grown-up indulgence and fun, taught by some incredibly impressive driving instructors. Daniel has photographed it for the Alabama Porsche Club a few times now.

Think cars and weddings don’t haver much overlap? You’re wrong. Check out a cool Barber Motorsports engagement photo session for one car enthusiast and his fiancee last year.

And here are a few more highlights from the DE from  Daniel Taylor Photography:

Published: SpringHouse Restaurant Chef Rob McDaniel in B-Metro

Chef Rob McDaniel of SpringHouse at Lake Martin in B-Metro magazine, article by Kelli Hewett Taylor and photos by Daniel Taylor Photography.

Earlier this year, Daniel and I had the extreme honor to do a profile piece for  the October 2011 issue of B Metro magazine about one of our favorite (and acclaimed) chefs, Rob McDaniel of SpringHouse restaurant at Lake Martin. I got back to my writing roots, and Daniel handled all the gorgeous photos.

Be sure to check out more of Daniel’s editorial and film photography on his cool new website.

Rob is incredible and he embodies everything we appreciate about great food: locally grown, organic, sophisticated and fun combinations, and of course, crazy good to eat.  Rob’s sophisticated Southern cuisine is totally worth the 90-minute drive to Alexander City. Talk about credentials? Rob studied under renowned chef Chris Hastings of Hot & Hot Fish Club and the two filmed an episode of the cooking TV show Iron Chef back in July. Talking with Rob about his passion for food will change the way you eat and the way you think about food.

We first met Rob in the spring at Paige and Brent’s gorgeous rehearsal dinner at SpringHouse. A few months later we got a call from a woman looking for a wedding photographer—totally by coincidence, it was Rob’s fiancee, Emily. We photographed their amazing rehearsal dinner and wedding in November. Pics coming soon!

Daniel Taylor Photography  was pleased to photograph another Birmingham wedding at Rucker Place in the fall. Lawyers in love, Mattie and George, tied the knot in a picturesque outdoor ceremony at the historic Southern home.

UPDATE: This dreamy Southern garden wedding was also featured on the national wedding blog Every Last Detail on March 26, 2012.

These two were so adorable, so in love, it was nothing but a pleasure to photograph them, their families, and their awesome wedding party.

Rucker Place’s wedding director, Jeannene, always keeps everything running smoothly and we’re so grateful for her professionalism. The beautiful vibrant florals were by Laure Friedman of LSL Event Design and everyone went back for seconds thanks to Savoie Catering. Our dear friends from Dreamcakes Bakery created the wonderful wedding cake.

Mattie and George have awesome taste in music. The ceremony and reception sounds were by one of our new favorite wedding groups, the bluegrass musical team Act of Congress. They have a fantastic mix of original music, as well as great interpret ions of expected artists, like Michael Jackson.

Mattie and George’s vintage getaway car was from Coats Classic Cars, driven by one of our favorite chauffeurs, Diana.

Check out their beautiful engagement photos at Sloss Furnaces, too!
