A photographer from Northern Michigan. I want to capture YOUR love. Whether you're star-crossed-lovers or from a right swipe on tinder that you didn't expect anything serious from - it's still your love. LET'S HAVE FUN!
24, 5'5"ish, brunette, white female. I am dog OBSESSED (well just animal obsessed in general). I have tattos with the intention to add more. I have a degree from Michigan State University in Zoology with a concentration in Marine Biology and a minor in Environmental Sustainability. I have never been one to follow the crowd, I am a "weirdo" & I wouldn't change anything about me.
I would like and am willing to capture EVERYTHING from the proposal to the day after (or do people take photographer with them on the honeymoon? I mean why not!?) Engagement session, wedding day, trash the dress or suit - everyhting you could need, I'm here.
NATURAL - with some poppy natural colors, deep blacks and muted highlights. I DO NOT USE PRESETS. I will edit your photos individually according to the light given to us the day of the shoot.
People of Color friendly
Dog (or other pets) friendly

Adventurous Dog Loving Amazing Photographer!
I CANNOT recommend Taylor enough. Seriously she is absolutely amazing and we are so fortunate we were able to find her for our engagement photos and wedding.
Long story short, we had a problem with our original photographer who we booked for our engagement photos and wedding. We had disagreements on a lot of things, especially his style for editing dogs (the original reason we hired him). So last minute after being very unhappy with our original photographer's engagement photos, we had to rush to find a photographer to get our engagement photos done in time to send wedding invitations. I had seen Taylor's work through Dog Instagram (ourevolvingadventure) and always loved her work on both adventurous humans and dogs, so I reached out.
Taylor was very prompt in responding to everything on Instagram messenger and was very enthusiastic to help us. She also happened to be back in Michigan at that time and the timing worked out perfect for our re-shoot of our Engagement Photos. We found a morning where she could fit us in on her short visit back last minute and it was the best decision. We were between doing two different places for our Engagement photos, but instead of us picking one Taylor said, "why don't we just do both?!" She was super accommodating, allow us to catch sunrise on Belle Isle State Park for our more formal photos and fall colors in our day clothes at Maybury State Park (45 mins away).
Outside of her accommodating nature, she was also AMAZING with both us and our dog, Dexter. She made us feel VERY comfortable and like we were just friends hiking. She even made my dad, who is not a talker and very quiet person, feel comfortable and have fun while he helped us. Dexter absolutely adored her and she is amazing with dogs! Clearly from her own experience with her dogs, but even capturing their personalities on camera as well.
She was also very fun and adventurous with us. She was willing to walk through super muddy areas to get the perfect photos, almost fall on multiple occasions trying to get the right angle, and run up hills so we could climb trees to get a great photo. It was honestly perfect!
Then the editing portion came. Once again she was very understanding of how I was hoping the photos would turn out and be edited. She allowed me to approve things and make sure they were exactly what I wanted. She put in so much work into our photos and editing. We cannot thank her enough for it! She made sure to have our Save the Date photo done when I needed it and made sure everything was exactly perfect.
I seriously am so excited she will be doing our Wedding this June. She really is one of the best Photographers I have met and loves what she does!Sent on 01/30/2020

Professional and Fun!
My fiance and I had our engagement photos done by Taylor, and had such an amazing experience. She immediately made us feel relaxed and encouraged us to have fun and be ourselves. She is professional yet easy going. Our photos turned out SO GOOD. We can't wait to have her take our wedding photos as well. We highly recommend Taylor for anyone looking for top quality photos at a reasonable price!Sent on 01/30/2020

Taylor was awesome to work with! She made two people who are uncomfortable in front of a camera super comfortable. She captured the entire day beautifully and caught some great candid moments as well. Couldn’t have asked for a better photographer to fit our personality and style.Sent on 02/06/2020
Featherstone Fotography's reply:Thank you Hanna!! Your wedding will always hold a special place in my memories! I had SO much fun! (Having Todd there was an added benefit)
