If Taylor is available for your event, book her ASAP! I spent a while looking online for a photographer who specialized in outdoor shoots, with a natural, modern look. As soon as I saw Taylor's photos and talked to her on the phone, I knew she was the right choice. My dream was to do a wedding shoot with our dog at Black Balsam, off of the Blue Ridge Parkway, and Taylor helped us make it happen. The week of our shoot we had more rain and storms than usual, and she helped us find an indoor backup, just in case. We decided to risk the weather, and Taylor was 100% on board to get wet and be creative in case we couldn't catch a break in the weather (arriving with cool clear umbrellas just in case). Taylor was incredibly friendly, open, and generous. We were nervous about posing, especially in fancy outfits, but she immediately put us at ease. Over the course of an hour we took photos in a few different locations, and I actually forgot she was there a few times. Taylor gave us some direction, but allowed us to do what was comfortable. I've only seen one shot so far, but it is totally magical : ) Thank you for giving us beautiful memories to take with us to Colorado.Sent on 05/24/2018

My husband and I are so glad that we chose Mountain Orenda Photography to capture our special day!! Having your photos taken by a complete stranger can be awkward sometimes, but Taylor is super friendly and made us feel super comfortable. We loved that about her. The quality of the photos were incredible, she took great shots, and we would definitely recommend her!Sent on 01/16/2019

One of the most beautiful photos taken at our venue was taken by Taylor Boyd Photography. It is a stunning picture of a beautiful bride standing just inside our open barn doors. We hear so many comments about this beautiful picture and it is one of the photos we feature on our home page!
