FAQ:

Why should we hire you for our wedding?

It’s really important to me that you take the time to review my portfolio, read my reviews, set up a time to chat so I may answer all of your questions and concerns, and be sure you are fully confident in your decision to hire me before doing so. My photography style is pretty consistent across the board which means if you like what you see there should be no surprises. I want you to hire me because you’ve fallen in love with my imagery and because my style is reflective of the type of documentation you’ve dreamed of for your wedding day. I work very closely with my couples throughout the wedding process and have formed lifelong relationships with many of my clients as a result, going on to document far beyond their wedding day and capturing many more of life’s milestone moments as their stories continue to unfold. It’s truly a special bond that is built and one of the biggest blessings of my job. I genuinely love what I do and pride myself on working with couples that see the value in my artistry.

How would you describe your style of photography?

I definitely consider myself a lifestyle photographer with an emphasis on capturing raw emotion and detail. While there will be times throughout your wedding day where I will need to organize shots (i.e. formal family photos) my favorite images from any day tend to be candid and unposed. When working with my couples I try my best to direct them in a way that makes them feel comfortable and draws out genuine laughter and real emotion. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible so that I may capture the events of the day as they unfold organically. I've been known to do just about anything for a good shot though and am always up for a creative adventure or challenge if one presents itself. I am an absolute lover of natural light and live for magic hour sunset shots. I do not get overwhelmed easily and having been in this industry for over 10 years have seen and worked through just about anything… and I mean anything.

Do you work with a second photographer?

Yes and no. Some weddings it is simply not necessary for me to have an assistant. I personally love to be able to capture all of the main events myself whether an assistant is present or not whenever possible…however sometimes the situation does not allow me to be everywhere at once and in that case an assistant is absolutely necessary. I am lucky to have a team of skilled assistant photographers and associate shooters to step in when I can't be there as well as cover the events I cannot cover myself. If you inquire about a date that I am already booked it is always an option to work with one of the associate shooters on my team. All correspondence, contracts, editing and delivery of files etc will till be handled by me, essentially one of my associates would just fill in the day of should you choose to go that route.

Do you edit all of your photographs?

Yes. Every single image is edited. I do not provide raw, unedited imagery as I consider each image a work of art and would not hand over incomplete work or work that is not reflective of my brand and artistry. All of your images will be high resolution and unwatermarked.

Where do you live and how far will you travel?

I am lucky enough to live in the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley in Santa Barbara, CA with an additional home base in Manhattan, NY and spend my time balancing work and life between the two coasts. I do not charge travel fees within Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties, Manhattan, Brooklyn, and parts of Long Island and New Jersey. If you are inquiring about a location outside of my standard shooting range contact me so I may quote you appropriately based on distance and circumstance. I also offer destination wedding packages as well as the opportunity to have your full wedding weekend documented....rehearsal dinners, welcome receptions, brunch ect…

Do you also provide videography services?

I don’t. I place all of my emphasis on photography as to not miss any important moments throughout your day and I strongly encourage you to book a separate videographer as it is and entirely different craft. I am happy to recommend some that I work closely with!

How long will it take before we receive our image gallery?

It really depends on the time of year you are getting married and how many other events I am managing at the time. During a busy season it can take 2-3 months to receive your gallery although I do offer a rush upgrade that can be added to your photography package if you’re dying to get your hands on your images ASAP. I’ve been known to get them out in as quick as 4-6 weeks during a slower season.

How many images will we receive?

There are many factors that go into the amount of images you receive, a few being being how many hours you contract me for, if you hire a second photographer, the amount of down or travel time you have throughout your wedding day and the size of your wedding. I would say a safe average is about 125 images per hour for most weddings. I include everything that turns out well and you will not have to make selections once you receive your gallery. Everything you see in your gallery will be included in your photography package.

Stop what you're doing & hire Brittany!

We don't know each other but I assure you, dear reader, that you will not regret hiring Brittany as your photographer! She is amazing! I could gush forever but for your peace of mind, let me provide some concrete specifics:
Before the wedding --
*Communication: Responses were quick, kind, and thorough! Brittany offered her expertise when I asked (roughly 9238374398) questions but was always very clear that it was ultimately our wedding and she would do what we asked of her.
*Prices: I got a ton of quotes from very talented photographers and Brittany was well within the normal range of cost - wedding photography is an investment and I strongly encourage anyone to budget well for this, it is worth it with Brittany! Seeing all the photos was like being right back in the middle of the day.
*General presence: We got married about 5 hours from home so we didn't get a chance to meet Brittany face to face until the night before the wedding. She was so friendly and easy to chat with while also not being a domineering or overpowering presence. I am generally a very anxious person and Brittany put me totally at ease with everything related to photography. She was confident in her skills (rightfully so) and I immediately trusted her to make the right calls to get the best photos. In fact, I turned it all over to her - aside from a few small requests (like keeping my daughter in as many photos as possible) I deferred to her on decisions, locations, poses, timing, all of it. And I have absolutely no regrets.

The wedding --
I just tried to remember seeing Brittany at the wedding other than during the very specific posed photos (i.e. getting ready, the wedding party together, our first look, a few family groups) and I honestly can't remember. She was thorough but discreet. I know she was there, I have the pictures of so many people and times throughout the whole event, but she never felt intrusive or disruptive to the flow of the day.

The photos --
Brittany got us a *very* generous sneak peek within a few days of the wedding (seriously, like less than a week after) and I cried and cried at how gorgeous they were. Everything we wanted and more. I actually kept a tab open on my computer permanently and looked through at least a few every day because I loved them so much. We got our full gallery yesterday, also in a very reasonable amount of time, and we are floored. I've looked through the whole gallery at least 3 times and every time I find another that stands out. They are INCREDIBLE. Brittany has a gorgeous portfolio on her website and she stayed so true to that in our photos (which is obviously what you want!). My husband had to tell me that wallpapering our whole house in our wedding photos was not a realistic goal... but I can't wait to get so many of them printed. It truly felt like we were transported back to the day and able to relive it. It went by way too fast the first time so I am forever grateful to have so many genuine moments captured.

Alllllllll of that to say, hire Brittany! If you're still not convinced, check out her website and her Instagram :) while I'm not planning on another wedding, I'd love to hire Brittany again if we end up back on the Central Coast in need of family photos.

Brittany, we can not thank you enough. Thank you for being such an important part of our day and capturing so many beautiful moments :)

Photographer for my Wedding

Brittany Taylor Photography was amazing! She was so flexible and it was so easy to get comfortable with her. She got the perfect shots for my wedding and made sure to ask me questions on what I prefer. Not only was she mindful of the angles I wanted, but delivered my photos so quickly after the wedding and they are beautiful!
