TESTIMONIALS

      “Their portfolio is breathtaking and the diversity in their artistic ability is endless.”

      My biggest concern with hiring wedding photographers was the need for experienced individuals I could relate to on an artistic level and an emotional level. I did not want typical wedding photos.

      Kelli and Daniel’s artistic level speaks for itself. Their portfolio is breathtaking and the diversity in their artistic ability is endless. They have a husband-and-wife edge about them. It’s very convenient that there’s a man and woman on your wedding day, for obvious reasons. Also, you get two artists in one package. Each person has an incredible eye for angles and and exquisite vision for your wedding day.

      I love the diverse backgrounds Kelli and Daniel bring to the table. I mean, an Australian and an American (Southerner) have a very wide range of backgrounds and inspirations. That’s awesome for getting different and not-so-typical photos.

      On the emotional level, I am very light-hearted. I do not express a lot of emotion and I didn’t want that to translate on camera for my wedding photos. Kelli and Daniel are experienced enough to be able to direct and suggest great poses that compliment my emotional level, while still showing just how in love I am.

      Kelli and Daniel  are organized in both business and with what photos need to be taken. They will also keep you in line on a day filled with distractions and emotions. When you’re working with professionals like Kelli and Daniel, you will enjoy your day because they will make you feel at ease. They truly have everything under control.

      “I loved that you really took the time to ask questions to get to know who we are, and what was important to us.”

      My biggest concern in regards to a photographer was that the photographer wouldn’t connect with Wes and myself, or truly understand who we are as a couple. I wanted a team that really listened to us and understood what we wanted to have pictures of to look back on.

      I started off with a long list of photographers. I didn’t know how I would ever choose. Photography was one of the things REALLY important to me because I wanted the pictures to capture the whole story and emotion of our day. I looked through the other photographers’ work but just felt pulled to Kelli & Daniel. I could look through all of the images and feel like I knew how the bride felt, and how their day had come together. I didn’t even speak with any other photographers.

      I remember talking to y’all and I just felt so at ease. I absolutely LOVED that you were a husband and wife team. That really made me feel good that there would be two people taking on our weekend. I loved that you really took the time to ask questions to get to know who Wes and I are, and what was important to us. I wanted people to be able to look at ours and know our story.

      It also didn’t hurt that y’all helped with little pieces of advice for our engagement session wardrobe to make sure those were perfect, too! After our engagement session I was smitten with y’all. I felt like I had just had a fun afternoon with new friends.

      Your patience and ability to keep a bride and groom calm are two things that really stood out to me. Wes and I have really strong personalities, as does almost everyone in our wedding party, and you both managed to handle us all and keep us all on schedule, maybe a little early!

      I felt you went above and beyond what is required for a photographer. You didn’t just take standard pictures, you really captured things important to us, which I know you do for each of your clients — it’s evident in all of your work.

      “You have such creative ideas, and the outcome is totally stunning. We are forever grateful.”

      “We are so appreciative of your talent. You embraced our vision for the photos at the beach cottage, and captured them perfectly. Our Wedding photos are everything we hoped for and more. We are absolutely thrilled, and we had so much fun sharing them with our families. You have such creative ideas, and the outcome is truly stunning. We are forever grateful.”

      “I knew I could trust Kelli and Daniel to capture my wedding day, as I saw it, through my eyes. There’s not much more a bride can ask for. We are so grateful to have such beautiful images that bring us right back to our special day!”

      Robert and I had never taken professional pictures together so we were looking for someone to completely take the reins. We wanted our photographers to know what to tell us to do and how to make us look the way we were feeling about each other!

      Upon meeting Kelli and Daniel, they are instantly warm and genuine. They complement each other so well, which also gave us the feeling that they are a great team and could handle all of the ups and downs of a wedding day.

      After talking with Kelli and Daniel, we had complete confidence in them, knowing that they love what they do and have a lot of experience doing it. They seemed to really understand the look we were going for with little explanation on my part. They are in tune with their clients’ desires and want to make sure to your exceed expectations — and they do!

      They are great listeners and want to make your wedding day as seamless as possible. They are flexible, yet on the ball regarding the day of schedule. They desire to accommodate the bride and her family’s wishes while still staying organized and focusing on the big picture. They are also just dear, fun people!

      A wedding day can be overwhelming and you need a photographer that makes you feel calm and relaxed. The way the photographer handles unforeseen situations or multiple personalities of a wedding party can have a huge impact on the overall day. If there was a problem on our wedding day, they dealt with it and I had no idea!

      I knew I could trust Kelli and Daniel to capture my wedding day, as I saw it, through my eyes. There’s not much more a bride can ask for. We are so grateful to have such beautiful images that bring us right back to our special day!

      “We just opened our sneaks and we are IN LOVE!!!

      What we were really looking for was someone to tell our story. Our wedding day photos are pretty much the only thing we’re taking with us moving forward from Our Beginning Day, so we wanted them to genuinely reflect the moments of the day.

      Beyond that, we wanted to capture the essence of our relationship: our personalities, our little quirky couple-ness, our love story. So when Kelli told us that their style was more about capturing candid moments than lining up poses, we couldn’t say yes quick enough!

      Wedding day came and they were fantastic! They guided and directed without ever seeming imposing or overbearing. They actually played a huge part in keeping both of us chill while we were getting ready. Kelli made me eat, which I am so thankful for!
      At our first look, they let the moment unfold and let us enjoy one of the best moments of the day. They were super patient and fun and joyful, which made Jess and I so comfortable in front of the camera – we could just be ourselves and let them record it all. Exactly what we wanted!
      We had a blast looking through our photos and remembering the day together. The actual day was such a blur and it was worth a million bucks to see all the details through our pics! My favorites are definitely the candid silly shots that they snuck in when we were just being our goofy selves. Kelli and Daniel are so amazing that they even managed some non-blooper posed shots of us!
      We cannot recommend them highly enough! If you are looking for a photographer who will go above and beyond to record one of the best days of your life exactly as it fits you, then look no further! You won’t be disappointed!

      “We loved the chemistry between you two and we knew you would be fun to work with.”

      My biggest concern about hiring a wedding photographer was that the quality of photos and that the vision of our wedding day would be captured correctly.

      When we had our first meeting we were able to see your body of work and you asked us what we envisioned. I could tell that our thoughts and taste really mattered to you. Your body of work really captured the joy and love between the couples. You both were very genuine and excited for our journey. You were very honest and put our needs first. We loved the chemistry between you two and we knew you would be fun to work with.

      You both are very passionate about your craft. You genuinely care about the couple and what they want. You make the couple feel like the most important people in the room and calm nerves when present. You are creative, fun, and pay attention to detail which makes for amazing photos.  We knew that you would capture our day in a beautiful way and we are very thankful that we chose you.

      Katherine Hammers Layton, bride

      “You made us feel like we’ve known you for years. You took all of our thoughts and preferences into consideration. You truly want to satisfy the clients.”

      I’m a big picture person. I was looking for great quality photos that my husband and I could look back on and remember all the special details and memories of our Wedding. I wanted two photographers for our special day because, how could just one possibly catch all the important details of the day? That’s why you two seemed like the perfect husband-wife duo for the job!

      Your website was filled with gorgeous photos that proved what great photography skills you two have. You two were both so easy to talk to and I knew you’d make a great team. I also had a very great recommendation from a hometown friend and her family who used you two for her wedding. All the pictures from her wedding were excellent!

      You made us feel like we’ve known you for years. You took all of our thoughts and preferences into consideration. You truly want to satisfy the clients – 100%.  And you handle your business very professionally.

      I wanted photographers who made me feel comfortable. Ones that are easy to work with and that I could trust to capture our special memories. You two did all of the above and plus some! We couldn’t be more pleased with our photos! What beautiful photos we have to always remember such a very special time in our lives! I would recommend Kelli & Daniel Taylor Photography to anyone! You won’t be disappointed.

      “Our clients constantly are blown away by not only their final images and albums, but also by Kelli and Daniel’s thoughtful approach and attention to detail.”

      This dynamic duo will be one of the best decisions you’ll make for your wedding. With a skilled eye, they effortlessly capture every shot and detail you can imagine. Our clients constantly are blown away by not only their final images and albums, but also by Kelli and Daniel’s thoughtful approach and attention to detail. Highly organized and professional through and through. We absolutely love this husband and wife photographer team!

      “You get what you pay for when you hire a photographer. The pictures are what you have when it is all over. Every day I look at my photographs  in frames sitting around my house and I feel very blessed! Love you both!”

      I was looking for photographers (for my daughter) that were creative as well as organized and professional. I wanted a married couple who were both photographers and had made this their career. There are too many people who just decide they want to photograph weddings on the side when they have no experience and they quit after a short period of time.

      First of all, you got back with me on the very night I inquired with you – you called me on the way back from photographing a wedding. I was impressed! I had inquired with others and it took them a long time to get back with me. You were very professional when we met and you answered all of our questions. You had lots of options in your packages. You brought samples of your work. That was so helpful.

      You were very accessible before the wedding as well as after the wedding. You got the edited photos back to us in a timely fashion like you had promised in the contract. I have friends who have not received their edited photos of the wedding and it has been a year or more.

      You were great to work with on the day of the wedding and communicated to us that you were so happy to be there. You seemed to really love your job. You thought of creative settings and photographs. You were also exactly where you were supposed to be to get the shots – like cutting cakes etc.  My director never had to hunt you down.

      The photos are stunning! They are creative but you also got those pictures of extended family etc. that everyone just needs to get. The colors were so vivid! The film pictures were so timelessly beautiful. I loved that you did both of these types of photographs with two shooters. Every wedding needs two shooters, not just a main photographer and a helper!

      As I went on a search for a photographer I quickly realized very few did photo albums. We wanted you to do our photo albums. We could not have done them in the excellent way you did them and we could not have gotten the professional photographer accounts with wedding album companies to do these gorgeous wedding albums. The albums were INCREDIBLE!!! And to top it off – you hand delivered them!! Wow!

      I highly recommend you as wedding photographers! I tell all of my friends about you. And I tell people you get what you pay for when you hire a photographer. The pictures are what you have when it is all over. Every day I look at my photographs  in frames sitting around my house and I feel very blessed! Love you both!

      “They were so laid back and easy to work with. I would recommend them over and over.”

      We absolutely LOVED Kelli & Daniel! Our photographs were so gorgeous, it was impossible to pick a favorite.

      They were so laid back and easy to work with, we also loved how willing they were to work with our dog, Huckleberry, in getting some amazing photos with him in them as well! I would recommend them over and over. Thanks Kelli and Daniel!!

      “You did exactly what we wanted, which was to get the romance of the day.  What y’all do is just such a blessing.”

      I looked at the photos again this morning and definitely cried more than you can imagine. You did exactly what we wanted, which was to get the romance of the day.

      I am tearing up just writing this because I love you guys so much. I can’t even find the words of what to say to you. You really capture the couple. What y’all do is just such a blessing to people. Thank you a million.

      Kendal Perry, bride 

      “I can’t believe that’s us in all of those pictures! They really are magical.”

      Quality photography was our top priority when Tommy and I first began planning our wedding. As a camera-shy, introverted girl, I knew we would need to choose just the right photographer, and there was no question who I wanted to ask first.

      I first met Kelli and Daniel when I was a bridesmaid in my friend Catherine’s beautiful wedding a few years ago. I was so impressed with the way they naturally blended into the festivities to capture the personality and spirit of every aspect of Catherine and Matt’s wedding.

      Our next experience with Kelli and Daniel was in the wedding Tommy’s brother and sister-in-law, Bruce and Emily. Their photos were beautiful as expected, and I particularly loved the way they got action shots on the dance floor and worked well with all the energetic children in attendance.

      Kelli and Daniel were so incredibly amazing in helping us create a dream engagement shoot. Not only did Kelli guide me in wardrobe and venue selection, but they also helped us structure our engagement session to also incorporate Tommy’s two precious girls for our first official photos as a new family. The morning was simply magical and so much fun for all of us!

      “EXCELLENT customer service from the start. You were the best vendors I hired.”

      Picking a photographer was at the very top of my list. There is so much variety of professionals in the area and I really wanting to mesh with someone. Being comfortable with someone is a HUGE deal for me. It’s pretty important to feel comfortable spending all day having someone take pictures of me and the closest people to me during an important day,

      The quick responses really stood out to me! I looked at their whole website prior to meeting them. I loved the elegant looks and I loved how the investment was spelled out and so transparent. Kelli made me feel welcomed and comfortable and was just overall friendly and helpful without being the least bit pushy. Kelli and Daniel made me and everyone involved feel so comfortable! You were the best vendors I hired.

      “They over deliver time and time again. Sadly, sometimes in this business, not everyone is like that.”

      Kelli & Daniel are consummate professionals, making you feel comfortable in front of the camera.

      Kelli & Daniel’s style is classic, elegant and true to what happened on the day. It is true to color, standing the test of time so in 20, 30, or 40 years when you are looking back on those photos, the images look effortless.

      I find the best clients for Kelli & Daniel  are those whose photography is a top priority and who want a photography experience. They are usually busy, working professionals who are looking for the same caliber of professionals in their wedding vendors.

      Kelli & Daniel are prompt, timely, and they over deliver time and time again. Sadly, sometimes in this business not everyone is like that. It is refreshing to work with photographers who respond to the needs of the client in a respectful way.

      Kelli & Daniel have the experience to anticipate the needs when building a proper photo schedule. They do a fantastic job educating the vendors and clients alike on the needs of the day and what to anticipate in order to get the shots for desired.

      When working with Kelli & Daniel, I know the images are going to be beautiful. I know the work day will flow wonderfully, and I also know that, should a bump in the road arise, we will work together to resolve it and the client will be none the wiser.

      If you want a first class photography experience for your wedding day and beyond, Kelli & Daniel Taylor are the photography team for you!

      “From wardrobe styling, to deciding shoot locations, and even a dozen texts helping me choose shoes, they nailed it. I’m generally an anxious person that likes to know the plan ahead of time, but with Kelli I find myself able to let it go.”

      I truly feel that there aren’t words that adequately describe how much I appreciate the incredible team that is Kelli & Daniel Taylor Photography. What can I say? They’re my go-to photographers, they always will be. Most recently they photographed my husband and me for our eighth anniversary in New Orleans, Louisiana.

      As a busy wedding planner in the middle of peak wedding season, I left the planning to them. From wardrobe styling, to deciding shoot locations, and even a dozen texts helping me choose shoes, they nailed it. I’m generally an anxious person that likes to know the plan ahead of time, but with Kelli I find myself able to let it go. Professionalism is their middle name and it only takes one look at our photos to know why.

      I’ll forever be indebted to them for capturing the memories we’ll treasure for a lifetime. I tell all of my clients how important and priceless photography is. When all is said and done, you’ll have your memories and your photographs. Make your photographs count and hire the best!

      “Kelli and Daniel have become so much more than wedding photographers to us, they have become our friends.”

      I grew up with a family that was consistently taking pictures. There was always a camera around to capture every event, big and small. So when it came time for me to start planning my wedding, pictures were at the very top of the list. I wanted our wedding pictures to be a story book, capturing every moment and detail from beginning to end. A friend recommended Kelli and Daniel Taylor to me. After looking them up on the Internet and Facebook, then meeting with them and seeing some of their work, I knew they were the ones for us.

      Kelli and Daniel did all of our wedding photography, from the engagement pictures to my bridal portraits, and of course our wedding day! From the first day I met with them they made me feel like we were their main focus. During every photo session, they demonstrated such patience, compassion, flexibility, and most of all professionalism.

      It was so encouraging for us to see a husband and wife duo work so well together, always on the same page and in tune with each other’s thoughts. While one of them would be thinking one thing, the other would already have the camera up capturing that thought. They were accommodating in so many aspects, from driving to my in-laws’ house in Fort Payne, AL for my bridal session, to standing in the streets of downtown Birmingham (in the drizzling rain might I add) to capture some last minute shots after our wedding reception. They went above and beyond the call of duty in every session and we could not be more in love with the results! All of the photos are timeless and truly “picture perfect.”

      Kelli and Daniel have become so much more than wedding photographers to us, they have become our friends. They have a passion for what they do and are an absolute joy to work with. We feel so blessed to have had such wonderful photographers to capture every moment of this special time in our lives!
