My dream photographer!
Taylor is an incredible photographer. In short, I loved working with Taylor, and if I could bring her everywhere, I honestly would. My now-fiance hired Taylor to secretly photograph our proposal in Acadia National Park and I am so grateful that such a talented photographer and sweet human was there to immortalize such a special moment in our lives. She captured the pure intimacy of our experience. The resulting images put our natural and authentic emotions on display to the fullest with a highly elevated, artistic quality and depth.Sent on 10/30/2020
Even once I realized that she had been taking photos the entire time during the proposal, we felt completely at ease...nothing like some other photo sessions I've observed in public, none of the awkwardness or overly contrived posing and direction. Looking at the photos again and again, my eyes can't help but water with tears of joy. Every photo is so beautiful that I always have difficulty choosing which ones to show to friends and family. Taylor's professionalism, joyful demeanor, patience, and willingness to hike to the proposal location also deserve great appreciation and admiration. I would highly recommend Opt for Epic to all!

Taylor and Opt For Epic deserve all the credit for my perfect proposal! With a plan to propose on vacation in a town I've never visited, it was impossible to find an ideal location. Taylor recommended a spot that met all my needs, scoped it out a week early to make sure that the spot wasn't too crowded and the light was just right. And of course, the photos came out amazing. Memories we will have forever. Could not recommend Opt For Epic enough, they go above and beyond to make sure that your experience is a perfect as you imagine!Sent on 10/28/2020

Great vision, so wonderful to work with
We decided to have a very intimate wedding due in light of COVID and reached out to Taylor the day before we were to be at Acadia after seeing her pics on instagram. She responded quickly. When we met, I was very impressed with her professionalism, friendly disposition, and keen eye. She even arrived an hour early to scope out the best areas that were not busy. She made us very comfortable and her pictures of us were even more perfect than I could have imagined. Thank you for capturing these magical moments of my husband and I. We will cherish them for a lifetime.Sent on 10/01/2020
Team of Opt For Epic
I have been photographing weddings and elopements for over 10 years. I photographed my first wedding at 16 years old assisting another photographer, and when I graduated college I went full time in my business. I have photographed weddings all over New England, Florida, California, Germany, Bangladesh, and everywhere in between. Finding my passion at such an young age has been a complete blessing and I am grateful every day to do what I love. I believe that your wedding day deserves to be 100% about you and your partner, and I love to help couples add adventure and fun into their plans. Acadia National Park is one of America's most treasured National Parks, and I can't wait to show you around and photograph your experience here!
Taylor Paige pays very close attention to detail when documenting weddings. With her camera, she brings out the beauty of the couple, the crowd, and the venue. I observed her in action with a couple and they seemed at ease with her direction. She was a pleasure to work side by side with as we both sought to create a memorable wedding experience.
