I'm a 19-year-old photo taker currently living life in the good old prairies of Saskatchewan. Things I love: SZA, Big Bang Theory, soft chicken tacos, all dressed Ruffles chips, my golden retriever, Charlie, and couples who fully trust me and my creative visions to capture their special moments in life. I am passionate about photographing emotion—love, connection, & happiness. It’s a crazy feeling to be chosen to document the biggest days in someone’s life, and I treat it like it’s the most important job in the world... because to me, it is.
I am a traveling photographer + web designer; obsessed with adventure, travel, and capturing intimate moments. If you bring me along on your adventure somewhere special, I can promise to capture memories you will never forget.
Also if you serve perogies at your wedding, that is a huge bonus in my book!!!
I've always naturally been drawn to taking photos. I had a "teen fashion blog" when I was 14 and that's when I figured out I loved being behind the camera more than anything else. I've captured portraits, families, and friends, but capturing couples and their love connection is where my heart truly is.
I would describe my photography style as intimate, warm, natural, intentional, honest, and meaningful. I strive to keep my editing true to colour, making sure not to alter the beautiful tones of nature or your glowing skin tones.
I am currently studying web site design + development, and as much as I love coding websites and graphic design, photography has always been what brings me the most joy.
I also can't get enough of travelling and exploring new places and landscapes. So far I've had the opportunity to explore Denmark, Arizona, Hawaii, Los Angles, Montreal, Toronto, and most of BC/Western Canada!!!
That’s a little sneak peek into my life and a few of my favourite things. No matter who and where we are, we all have a different story to share. No love story is one and the same. And that’s why I LOVE documenting love stories (and hopefully yours too!).
From the tears of joy - to cheeky kisses - to getting loose on the dance floor, I'll be there to document your day through your eyes how you remember it to be. I'll even capture those candid moments that may have slipped by unnoticed by you - they're the best ones!
I will be in the shadows snapping candid reception shots, and I'll be right up at the front, rounding everyone up for group photos, I'll be wherever you need me on the day, not missing a beat!
Every ounce of my energy goes towards making you feel comfortable, relaxed, and beautiful on your day; as well as creating a gorgeous collection of images to forever cherish. When you look through your photos, memories will come to life and it'll be as though you're right there doing it all over again.
"Taiya is nothing short of incredible.
We hired her for our Engagement and Wedding photos and the experience and final product was outstanding. Her eye for capturing a moment, paired with her outgoing and ‘above and beyond’ professionalism made the entire experience such a pleasure. She certainly has a client for life with us! Highly recommend."
"Absolutely blown away with how she captured our love.
Taiya made us both feel so comfortable in front of the camera and directed us every step of the way. We had so much fun with her! She has the sweetest and friendliest demeanour, it was just so easy to have fun and feel comfortable with her. Then we received our photos… we were absolutely blown away at how she captured our love. She has an incredible eye and we will cherish the photographs she took of us forever. I would recommend Taiya 100x over."
"Taiya is absolutely incredible at what she does.
She consistently provided an effortless ease and comfort throughout the entire photography process which began with engagement photos and lead up to my wedding day. To say that Taiya is a dream to work with is an understatement! My husband and I were blown away by her professionalism, responsiveness and creativity. We gush over our photos... she captured the day perfectly and our photos portray true and raw emotion! These gems will be cherished for a lifetime!! We could not say enough beautiful things about Taiya to do herself and her business justice.
"Taiya captured our engagement photos and wedding wonderfully!
She ensured all the details were in place ahead of time so we could enjoy a stress free day! She scouted photo locations ahead of time which was a huge help. She was extremely professional and a pleasure to work with!"
