My experience with Marilyn Ray Photography was wonderful. Stephanie was very helpful and sweet in both our engagement and wedding photos.

She was absolutely amazing. Stephanie was very energetic and helpful in creating beautiful photos. We used her for both our engagement and wedding photos, and she was amazing. I cannot thank her enough for how great of a job she did. She was professional, sweet, and catered to our needs at the wedding. Her photos always turn out beautiful and I will be booking her again in the future. Thank you again Stephanie, we recommend you to anyone !!

Engagement/ Wedding

We could not have asked for a better photographer to capture these memories! We were totally prepared to have an awkward evening of taking engagement photos with someone we did not know, but it was the complete opposite experience! Stephanie made it fun and exciting - full of laughter and when she says, “do you trust me?” Say YES! I promise she won’t let you down with what her eye is seeing! She captured our wedding beautifully and we could not have imagined anyone else to capture our perfect day!

Thank you again!!

Stephanie Taylor
Stephanie Taylor
Owner

Hey there, I am Stephanie Taylor. The photographer behind the lens.

I specialize in Weddings/engagement, Marketing, Maternity, and Lifestyle.

I travel often for weddings and really enjoy meeting new people, seeing new places and experiencing photographing at different locations.

I love the candid moments that you catch on camera without trying. Those raw emotional moments where you are laughing really hard, where you are just showing the real you, the moments you catch when you are not posed.Those pictures, to me, are so beautiful!

I cherish that one picture that makes the entire day worth it!
You know the one I am talking about... The one where you get teary eyed looking at it because it brings back the emotions you were feeling at that exact moment!
Those pictures are the ones I thrive to catch for you.
I aim to savor the memory that otherwise would be gone with time.
