Briarwood Presbyterian Church

A lovely choice for a wedding venue in the Birmingham, Ala., area is Briarwood Presbyterian Church. We had the pleasure of photographing Abigail and Ed’s classic spring wedding there.  The bridal suite is one of roomiest, as well as prettiest we’ve seen, which is great for a larger bridal party. The front lawns are beautiful for lush outdoor photos, while the portico is just gorgeous, perfect for timeless bridal photographs. Briarwood also has wonderful wedding planners on staff to help keep things running smoothly. After Abigail and Ed’s wedding, guests were treated to a beautiful reception at Vestavia Country Club, which is full of light — a sure bet for terrific wedding photos. Flowers were by our friends at Norton’s Florist.

Birmingham’s Wedding Venues: Gabrella Manor

Gabrella Manor

Keri and Matt's wedding at Gabrella Manor in Birmingham, Ala. Daniel Taylor Photography

Birmingham, Alabama has plenty of choices for great wedding venues. Another one of our favorites is Gabrella Manor in Roebuck. We had the pleasure of photographing Matt and Keri’s wedding there in spring of 2009. It’s a place that is full of beautiful architectural details and other special features that make for lovely wedding photos. It’s often featured in regional wedding magazines such as Alabama Weddings and Southern Bride, the Alabama edition. Some of the prettiest include arched doorways drenched in ivy, incredible stained glass windows and a grand staircase.

We’ve gotten so many compliments about Keri’s elegant personal style, the sleek hairstyle, the post-wedding hair flower, the gorgeous dress that suited her style, not the latest mass-produced trends. Finding the perfect wedding day style, one that reflects you instead of dominating you, always makes for more gorgeous photos.

One of our favorite Alabama wedding venues is in Auburn, at the gorgeous Fountainview Mansion. It’s an exquisite place with incredible service, as we have witnessed firsthand when we  photographed Mandy and Daniel’s wedding there.

By day, Fountainview is an incredible mansion, nestled on 100 acres of countryside, full of old world charm. By night, it transforms into a color-drenched wonderland. As you are considering wedding venues, you can’t go wrong with Fountainview!

Indian Wedding Photography at Hyatt Wynfrey Hotel Birmingham

Wynfrey Hotel Wedding

Gorgeous Bollywood-worthy Hindu wedding reception first dance at the Wynfrey Hotel-Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Alabama. Daniel Taylor Photography

I may be Southern-born and Irish-Australian by heritage, by I am definitely Indian at heart. There is nothing I love more than an elegant Sikh ceremony, a lavish Hindu mandap, or a rollicking Punjabi wedding reception.

We had the best time getting to know B.M. and S.A., two professionals from Philadelphia who married at the Wynfrey Hotel-Hyatt Regency Birmingham in Riverchase, Alabama. We just loved their families, including their doting parents and wonderful sisters. There were also incredible aunties, uncles, cousins and children who made the wedding so special.

The two-day wedding and three days of wedding events were under the guidance of Wynfrey catering sales manager Heather Dill, who has more Indian wedding credits under her belt than any other non-Indian wedding vendor in Birmingham I know! Heather also organized the state’s first Indian bridal show last fall. Daniel Taylor Photography was also honored to be one of two photographers invited to participate.

At this wedding,  incredible catering was by our friend KK from Silver Coin Indian Grille in Hoover, as well as  Taj India in Birmingham. Other vendors included our friend DJ Bally of Atlanta, and our new friend Nita of Mandap World in Atlanta created three stunning decor designs over two days and nights.

Guys, we can’t thank you enough for giving us the honor of photographing your wedding celebration. It was so beautiful, worthy of any Bollywood wedding!

The Club Wedding Reception

Mary Katherine & Paul's wedding reception, The Club. Daniel Taylor Photography

We are absolutely ecstatic that another writer for Associated Content has named Daniel Taylor Photography as the first of four top wedding and engagement photographers in Birmingham, AL! You can read the complete article here. Writer Ashley Smith was so kind to say, “Daniel and Kelli Taylor are a husband-and-wife photography team who take pictures that look like they came out of magazines. They also offer destination engagement photography sessions in places like New York and the Gulf Coast. Daniel is from Australia, where he shot for fashion and advertising clients. Kelli has photographed for magazines and newspapers, and her photography has been published in The New York Times. Their wedding photography packages begin at $3,499. Their breath-taking web site is www.danieltaylorphoto.com.”

It’s an honor to be named alongside other fantastic Birmingham, Alabama wedding photographers including Studio G, Jerrod Brown and Arden Photography. We are huge fans of all their work.

In 2009, we were also thrilled to named No. 2 among five top Birmingham Wedding Photographers by another Associated Content writer, Rachel Carpenter. She humbled us by calling our photos “stunning.” You can read Rachel’s entire article here. Thank you so much, Associated Content. We are truly humbled and totally tickled!

 

NYC Engagement Photos

What engagement session is complete without a dip in Times Square? Daniel was lying on his stomach on the pavement, I was keeping him from getting stepped on, an NYC police officer who said he's been in a lot of weddings helped move people along!
