Stephany Taylor - Owner and Lead photographer
I have been photographing weddings and portraits since 2017. I started off as an assistant to another photographer and slowly worked my way to photographing a few weddings on my own. The photographer I was working for decided to retire from wedding photography, it was a sad day to no longer be able to work with her but I knew it was the right decision. I took this as a sign to move forward with my own business. I started Stephany Taylor Photography in February of 2020, which as we all know might have been the worst time to start a small business focused on social events. This did not deter my drive to build a business that I am truly proud of.
I love meeting new people, getting to know them, and their families. Capturing memories for them to cherish for generations to come. Photography has been a passion of mine since grade school, however, I never took serious interest in learning how to take portrait and use a fancy camera until 2014. I took my first actual online class after a trip to Japan when the desire to learn more really started.
Most days you can find me in sweat pants playing with Lego's or Play-doh with my little one, watching some anime, Star Wars, or other amazing fandom. I have a passion for helping others reach their goals, many in the photography community.
I stand by Community over Competition.

Maria Haoson - 2nd Photographer & Assistant
Hi everyone, I’m Maria! Just like Rocket had Groot, Steph has me, her trusty second shooter side kick. Photography was always something that fascinated me and Steph has helped me grow not just my interests, but my skills to capture those awesome moments for you! My role and superpower is to remain in the shadows and capture things while your attention is on Steph. My other ability is being her assistant. Fixing hair, setting up equipment, making sure you look amazing, you name it! Every superhero leads a secret double life, so do I. I’m currently in the process of becoming a Nurse and when I’m not doing that, I’m getting to help Steph capture everything important in your life but shhh a don’t tell anyone. I can’t wait to meet you and be apart of your next adventure!
