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.

lovett hall wedding: meghan & ricky

5.17.17 - weddings by Kristen Taylor

I say this often but I promise I mean it EVERY single time: I have the nicest clients, and Meghan and Ricky were among the nicest ever! They were so easy to work with, and throughout the day they probably went out of their way to say “thank you” to me at least five separate times (which is wild because it was ME who was honored to be there!). They all began the day by getting ready at The Dearborn Inn, which is where Meghan and Ricky had their “first look” moment. Meghan was a trooper about heading outside for photos even though it was a bit cold, and we were ecstatic to find gorgeous pink cherry blossoms on some trees nearby to use for photos. After that, their wedding officially began at Lovett Hall, where they did both their ceremony and reception, with some photos inside of The Henry Ford Museum. Their ceremony under the beautiful chuppah by Ruby Slipper Designs was sweet, and their reception room was absolutely stunning with a gorgeous cake by Holiday market. Their parents all sat at the same dinner table, which I thought was extra outstanding considering that some of the parents are divorced and remarried and yet they all seemed to get along like great friends (bravo!!). I’m always extra happy when I see that Chateau is the band because I know it’ll be an awesome dance floor… and it was! Ashley from Festoons and Flourishes did an incredible job with the planning and coordination on the wedding day and I could tell that Meghan and Ricky loved working with her (I did too!). Congrats to this awesome couple!!!

the reserve wedding: laurel & keith

5.11.17 - weddings by Courtney

Laurel and Keith are such a cool, and stylish couple! (They met at a book club, how cool is that?) From the moment I met them I thought “oh please pick me as your photographer!” I am absolutely thrilled they did. Their wedding had the coolest vibes from the vintage postcards, to the fern centerpieces and the speakeasy style bar for their portraits. Their day was a photographers dream.
Laurel had not one, but two gorgeous dresses that accentuated how stunning she is. Keith looked super fabulous in his tux and together they are one elegant couple. The ladies got ready at the Townsend hotel, and the guys at the couples house. We met for their first look at The Oakland, which was extra special because this was where Laurel and Keith had their first date. They were adorable reminiscing about that night and how Laurel “pre-ate” just in case she didn’t want to stick around for dinner. Obviously, their first date went super well!
Their ceremony and reception was at The Reserve in Birmingham and was filled with love and laughter, a super delicious dinner and dancing throughout the night.
Congratulations to the happy couple!

the guardian building: ashley & james

5.9.17 - weddings by Courtney

The room was buzzing with excitement when I arrived where the ladies were getting ready. Ashley looked stunning and she wasn’t even in her dress yet. She was calm and happy, ready for a wonderful day. I loved the teal bridesmaid dresses, and Ashley looked stunning in her lace gown. Their ceremony was held at the National Shrine of the Little Flower and the moment James laid his eyes on Ashley, he had the biggest smile on his face. Their ceremony was so sweet and as they were announced husband and wife, the room applauded.

I was thrilled at the choice of stops we had for their wedding day portraits. The backside of the DIA provided such beautiful light and this couple truly shined. I love how they light up when they are together. They are one of those couples who create heart-warming moments without even trying.

The Illuminated Mural and Riverwalk were Ashley and James picks (respectively) and they provided the perfect variety of backdrops for the day. What a fantastic day!

The reception was at the gorgeous Guardian Building. Guests arrived for a cocktail hour followed by dinner and some pretty touching speeches. As soon as the DJ turned up the music the dance floor was filled with dancing, singing and laughter.

I wish you a lifetime of happiness, congratulations!!

the inn at st. john's wedding: lauren & colin

4.26.17 - weddings by Kristin G.

Snowflakes fell during both of my April weddings last season, so I was thrilled when the forecast called for upper 60s and sunny for Lauren+Colin’s wedding day! Lauren looked like one of her beloved fairytale princesses, as she was stunning in her classic ball gown and jeweled tiara. I also loved the choice of bridesmaid’s dresses, both the berry color and detail on the back of the gowns. When we arrived at the church, Colin also did not disappoint with his stellar ensemble and before we knew it, these two were married! The wedding party was super fun as we made our way out to the Big House for some portraits, as U of M campus is where these two lovebirds originally met. After soaking up some sunshine here, we headed over to the law quad for more formal shots. Between the architecture, the sunlight and the stunning couple, I was in my element and would have kept them there forever, but we had a party to attend! The wedding party entered the Grand Ballroom at the Inn at St. John’s under a U of M banner and there were a lot of smiles during the toasts, including one from Lauren’s very proud papa. I always admire reception details and thought the décor and flowers by Wouldn't It Be Lovely and cake by Iversen’s looked beautiful. You couldn’t have asked for a more perfect wedding day! A big heart felt congratulations to the new Mr.+Mrs.!
