Announcing... our rebrand!

10.1.15 - News

The two photography companies owned by Kristen Taylor (Kristen Taylor Photography and Kindred by Kristen Taylor) have now combined into one larger company called KRISTEN TAYLOR & CO.

At the core of Kristen Taylor & Co are four stylish, sophisticated, and artistic photographers who truly love to photograph weddings, our talented support crew of Second Photographers and Assistants, and our amazing office and post-production crew. We all have very high standards for every aspect of our lives, and we hold ourselves to those same high standards as we provide wedding photography in our Modern Romance style.

We are more than a one-photographer small business, but we are also not a huge and impersonal machine. Instead we incorporate the best traits of each, and we combine them in a way that still builds a personal connection between each client and their photographer, but which also benefits from the efficiency, experience, and high-quality customer service of a larger and more established company.

While we have four Lead Photographers at present time, we are working to build up to more with the goal of becoming even larger so we can offer even more high-quality choices, like the Nordstrom of wedding photography. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, please see the HIRING page of our website.

birmingham engagement session: katie & steve

9.22.16 - engagements by Kristin G.

I always smile when my couples tell me that they are not ones who take great portraits, and then they completely rock their session! Katie + Steve totally looked the part when I met up with them in downtown Birmingham – I loved her black and white polka dot dress and his skinny black tie! They easily fell into a rhythm which makes me super excited to shoot their portraits on their wedding day next Spring! I had a blast with these two as we walked around and I was also selfishly thrilled when we stumbled upon a couple of new-to-me locations after they changed into a more casual, but stellar, ensemble. A big congrats and I’ll be seeing you again before we know it! xo

the madison wedding: melissa & adam

9.22.16 - weddings by Jen

I met Melissa and Adam on their wedding day shortly before their ceremony at St. Stephen in New Boston. Melissa and her girls were the picture of perfection. Not only did Melissa look stunning, but her bridesmaids looked fantastic in their dresses as well. I chatted with them for a few minutes while taking some pre-ceremony photos and before I knew it, it was time to start the ceremony! Afterwards, we headed to Downtown Detroit for some fun photos at the DIA and Belt Alley. Let me tell you, Melissa, Adam and their bridal party rocked it! Their reception at The Madison had this great loft type feel to it, and Megan with Brindle + Oak had every gorgeous detail taken care of. I loved their florals by Silk Thumb , and cake by Cakes by Stephanie. After dinner, everyone moved to the rooftop patio for dancing just as the sun was starting to set over the city. I think it's safe to say the ambiance was pretty perfect! Everyone was having a blast on the dance floor and socializing around the fire (yeah, there’s even a fireplace on the rooftop!). Melissa & Adam, I was so honored to be a part of your wedding day, and I wish you both a lifetime of happiness together!

grosse pointe yacht club wedding: melissa & danny

9.21.16 - weddings by Kristin G.

I knew this wedding was going to be amazing the moment Melissa’s stunning gown was hung in an incredible two story window at the Grosse Pointe Yacht Club. She looked absolutely flawless, and you repeatedly heard the comment that Danny was not going to know what to do with himself when he saw her walk down the aisle. The sixpence that was passed down through generations was one of my absolute favorite details, and I can't get over the girls' flowers by Viviano. Melissa and Danny had a heartfelt ceremony at St. Paul on the Lake followed by an afternoon of gorgeous backlit portraits. Quite honestly, I could have easily held these two hostage to photograph for hours, but it was time to kick off their super awesome reception inside the Yacht Club. The Simone Vitale Band was a crowd favorite (as always!) and it was hilarious to watch Danny and his teammates sing their rendition of “My Girl” to his beautiful bride. Josef's made the beautiful cake, Lee's Specialty did the gorgeous invitation, and Epic Motion was a pleasure to work with! A big congrats to the both of you!

detroit athletic club wedding: melyssa & zach

9.20.16 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

I knew it was going to be a great day when I drove up to the huge estate in Bloomfield Hills where Melyssa and Zach were getting ready. The house was full of what felt like a million bridesmaids getting ready (ok, it was just 10 plus a few kids) while the groom and groomsmen were sequestered in the basement cooly hanging out and playing games. Despite all of the chaos Melyssa was super calm, and as soon as she slipped into that gorgeous gown she looked like royalty. And those pink shoes - I mean, come on! Her first look moment with Zach was adorable, I just love the way he looks at her. After photos at the estate we were off to the Mother of God Church for their sweet ceremony, and then afterward the rooftop of the DAC in Detroit for some beautiful photos. The ballroom at the DAC always looks beautiful, but the flowers by Delux Floral made it exceptionally beautiful on this day, and their cake with gold glitter and pink frosting made by the DAC was a gorgeous focal point. The day would not have gone so well if not for the incredible planning by A June Event and the reception would not have been as lively if not for the band Chateau . It was such a fun party, including an awesome rap (in lieu of a toast) performed by two bridesmaids and a lovely song sung by the bride’s sister. Thanks for including me in your awesome day, Melyssa and Zach!
