Hey, it's Taylor here. As I have grown my wedding photography business over the years one of the hardest parts is receiving inquiries from dream clients and already being booked for their wedding dates. I tend to book out for wedding dates around 12-18 months in advance so that left me turning down potential wedding clients for a significant portion of the year. Then enter Alysha, Ashley and Rhema. These sweet ladies have been life savers as they allow me to almost be two places at once! Key word almost! As members of my team Alysha, Ashley or Rhema step in and photograph client wedding days in my place. I am still the behind the scenes guide to all things timeline, planning, question answering and then editing after it's all done. This is my way of serving TNP clients and giving an amazing wedding photography experience even when I am already booked out.
Why we make the perfect team... Well you already know my problem, I can't be in two places at once. As much as I've tried haha! Ashley, Alysha & Rhema are not only amazing photographers but moms to their sweet kiddos at home. While they love capturing wedding days the everyday tasks of email communication and time consuming editing take them away from their families. That's where I come in, I handle all client communication, editing and even photograph all engagement sessions for all TNP Associate clients. That leaves Alysha, Ashley or Rhema to step in and photograph the wedding day, then they get to turn over the images to me for editing and go back to being present with their families.
I will share their bio's below along with some fun facts so you can get to know each of them! I am so excited for you to meet my amazing team!
So keep scrolling to learn more about the TNP Associate process and workflow.
Images are transferred back to Taylor and she begins the editing process. You receive a HUGE preview within the first week of your wedding. Including moments from the getting ready, ceremony, family portraits, bridal party fun, and of course your couple's portraits! I keep editing away and send you your finished online gallery within 6-8 weeks of your wedding! You get to relive your best day ever and easily share these images to social media and with family and friends.
Taylor checks in a few weeks earlier, all the details are finalized. Notes are passed along to your very own TNP Associate. Then they come and capture your best day ever! From getting ready through your reception they are there with you. Photographing, helping and hopefully making you smile! The associate gets to be your extra eyes, capturing moments you didn't even notice, preparing to WOW you with your images!
The call went well, all questions were answered and you are completely convinced that a TNP Associate is the perfect wedding day photography solution! Yay! Next we will confirm your photography collection and set up an online contract and invoice. You will review and sign the contract and place a 20% retainer to save your wedding date on the calendar. We will move forward with all the planning and engagement session from here! Taylor photographs all client engagement sessions, so you get to know the person behind the whole biz!
You've seen the site, probably stalked us on social. Next step is to fill out the contact form. I will get an email back to you within 2-3 business days with detailed pricing information. From there we will set up a phone or video consultation where we will talk all things wedding. Your love story, your vision, your questions. I will even set you up with a personalized timeline so you have a big picture of how your day could go!
Hello, great to "meet" you! I'm Alysha, a mountain girl, psychology nerd, and creative personality. If I could, I'd have a huge organic garden and cook the most incredible food from it. I will eat pretty much anything if it has enough curry on it and in many ways clearly meet the description of a "foodie". On my bucket list is to return to Paris (sigh), run another half marathon (gasp), and see the New York City Ballet perform the Nutcracker (twirl)! I love, in a deep sense of the word, people. And I love Photography. In putting those two passions together I’ve found I’m so blessed to have the best job in the world.
My journey with wedding photography started wayyyyyy back in 2006, at the advent of digital photography. This was the year I photographed my first round of weddings, but not the official kick off of a business. I've been gifted with a vast work background including large scale event production, management, psychology, and teaching in a variety of platforms & places. At the time, I had no clue these experiences would be lending themselves to something I've been passionate about since being young, photography. After marriage to an amazing man (he’s part of why I love weddings, because I know how incredibly awesome marriage can be!) and the birth of my beautiful first child, I found myself at home and...needing to remember the part of me that loves beauty and light. The Lord led me to dusting off my camera, and the pieces started to fall into place. It's been a wild ride since then. I feel as if I can see again, but with wiser and stronger eyes. For me, photography always has been and always will be about love, relationships, beauty, and LIFE, through the lens.
2 more kids and a whole lot of life later, I needed to begin to transform the role of photography in my life. It turned into a perfect fit to start a new journey with Taylor, one that would give my editing hours back to my growing family, and still allow place for my passion to be active. My mission now is to create truly incredible images and an unforgettable experience for the amazing people I get to work with as an Associate Lead Photographer under Taylor Nicole Photography, and I LOVE it!
I’m going to date myself and say The Italian Job.
Everywhere! I love to explore it all-city, mountain, ocean, dessert, and field.
Alone, and the entire time I’m just going, “There’s no way I could do that!”
Exploring outdoors, especially with my hubby, kids, and Blue Heeler. Winter does not scare us!!
All the Food! Except celery. Shudder.
Any type of “Foodie” restaurant!
I own a coffee shop with my hubby…and usually have a cup of tea in my hand!
My name is Ashley and I just celebrated 10 years of marriage with my husband Will, who I met in college in Oxford, England. I spend most of my time raising our two boys, Milo + Walter on our little homestead, which we are currently renovating. I have been photographing weddings for 3 years and have photographed over 60 weddings! I enjoy all of the moments that happen in a wedding day - from the beautiful details to the intimate moments shared during your first look to the laughter and tears experienced during the toasts. I love being a part of creating memories for couples + getting to celebrate them as they start this chapter of their love story.

Before anything else, I am a wife and a mother, these things make me a better photographer. I understand what it means to love deeply, to treasure small moments together and that life is better holding hands with someone along the way. I believe love is found in the in between moments and that everyone has a story to tell. I love capturing love and am honored to call this my job! Photography is something I have always loved but I now know how special it is since my first daughter was born! I will cherish so many photos I have of her.
It's such an honor to get to be by your side in such an important day of your life and I am completely amazed that this is my job!

"Taylor is so friendly and easy to work with. It was so comforting in the chaos of wedding planning to work with a photographer that was incredibly organized and responsive. She made us feel very comfortable and directed us through all of the pictures which was very helpful for my husband and I"
— Kelly & Dean
"Taylor is an ABSOLUTE JOY to work with and booking her as our photographer was without a doubt the best decision we made for our wedding! She is one of the most genuine individuals you will ever meet and the passion she has for her work speaks for itself in her photos.."
— Julia & Reid
"Taylor is amazing. My first experience with her was actually with her shooting my best friend's wedding. As a bridesmaid, I was so impressed with Taylor's kindness and sweet spirit, as well as her professionalism, focus and ability to keep the ball rolling in a timely fashion. You can tell she knows what she's doing and everything felt so natural with her - not awkward as being photographed can feel at times! 10/10 would recommend!"
