The official launch of Kindred, a sister company to KTP!

1.31.14 - News

{kin-dred}, adjective. definition: Of a similar quality and character.

After owning my business for eight years, my referral base has grown to the point where I am getting booked up very quickly, and I hate having to turn away any brides! At the same time, many of the photographers who had for years been working with me and getting trained very closely by me, were getting good (really good!). So connecting those two things and launching a sister company was the very logical next step!

And hence, Kindred by Kristen Taylor was born.

Currently Kindred has two photographers, Courtney and Kristin G. (we call her Kristin G. in order to try to reduce confusion between the two Kristen/Kristins). Both of them have already been booking and shooting weddings for me, however they are now officially getting moved over to the new Kindred brand. As others become ready to shoot for Kindred I will be adding more photographers, however I am not in a rush to grow the quantity of photographers, instead I am focusing on the quality of them. Despite having multiple photographers, Kindred is still a boutique-style wedding photography company in which we focus on offering amazing photography in our Modern Romance style, as well as on the client and their photographer having a personal connection with one another. That will not change no matter how large we grow.

Kindred is NOT a factory-style company in which you are shown sample images that were maybe or maybe not (probably not) photographed by the photographer they send to you on your wedding day, usually one that you have never even met, and who may have a very different style and personality than what you were anticipating. In stark contrast, at Kindred YOU select your photographer, you see sample images that were shot by THAT photographer, and you get to meet that photographer IN PERSON prior to booking. Each photographer is very closely and thoroughly trained by me in my Modern Romance style, and they are usually promoted from within after having gained a significant amount of on-the-job experience. All of this provides you with the peace of mind that comes from knowing that your wedding photographer's style and personality is exactly what YOU were looking for.

Because I have spent the past eight years selecting the best products and perfecting my operating proceedures, all of the stages of the operational process from booking, pre-planning, post-production, and the design of the final products are done in the exact same way as they are for my own company, and in fact they are done by the exact same people. Although Kindred and Kristen Taylor Photography have separate websites, logos, etc., behind the scenes the two companies are very closely connected. Therefore, not only do you have the assurance that your photographer's style will be similar to mine, but you can be confident that you will receive the same type of high-quality products and excellent customer service that I already have a reputation for providing.

Anyway, below are photos of Courtney and Kristin G., as well as just a few of our favorite images they shot last year (you can find the rest of our 2013 favorites at Kindred website).
