I am so poor at photo taking, but after great instructions by her, she took a lot photos that me and my husband and our friends like and they have been great decos for my wedding! And since I am a Chinese bride, in fact I am not quite familiar with western wedding. Kristen helped a lot to decide the schedule on my wedding day and advise me not to schedule it so tightly as I have initially day. And on the wedding, she helped me plan my first look (which is not in my plan until then and that has been the favourite moment of my husband) due to the fact I don't have time for the chinese traditional activities I have planned. Besides, she has taken every details I have wanted! And she has captured so many candid moments that me and my husband, my friends liked!!!!! They are just so fantastic and professional!!!! I can't wait to start my photo album and see them!!!! Thank you so much, Kristen and your team!!!!!

The photos were absolutely flawless, increadibly elegant, timeless, and extremely creative. This company is filled with true dedicated & passionate artists. Kristen Taylor & Co has a staff that is extremely prompt in their communication and response time if you have any questions or concerns before and even after your wedding.

Our wedding photos look as though they could be featured in a magazine spread or displayed in an art museum. We are beyond overjoyed that we selected such a terrific photography company. This company came highly recommended by my wedding planner and I'm so lucky that we were able to get a date booked because Kristen & Taylor Co appears to be one of if not the top photography companies in the state of Michigan.

I smile when the sun shines. When dress code and the weather allow, I live mostly in skinny-cropped jeans, casual tops, and cute little flats. I’m pretty sure I’m allergic to formal business attire and white lattice gazebos. I love many things, highest on the list are my husband of 15 years and our sweet giggly 4-year-old daughter. Not far behind them are Dave Matthews Band summer concerts, vacations to the Inn at Bay Harbor, coffee, running, and great restaurants with outdoor seating.
