An Interview with Wedding Photographer Taylor Lord

The Nouveau Romantics Purple Wisteria Installation with Photography by Taylor LordHi Taylor!  For our readers who aren’t yet familiar with you, will you share a bit about how your path led you to photography?  

Hi! Of course! Here’s the short version- I was an Art History major at Baylor University and had to take a black and white film class as a prerequisite for graduation. It was my last semester of school but I fell in love with it. I had never even considered photography as a career! A good friend from school saw some of my hobbyist work on Facebook and asked me to come assist her at weddings! I soon fell in love with weddings- the dynamic schedule during the day, getting to know people and their families, the photojournalism and the fine-art of it- the entire thing! I knew it was what I was meant to do!

Autumn in Indianapolis on Snippet & Ink | Part I

bride-groom-formal-portraits Autumn in IndianapolisWe’re happy to share that Emma + Brian’s wedding is up on Snippet & Ink! Autumn in Indianapolis is exactly what the season should be. Cool, crisp, and bursting with rich color. Emma and Brian were looking for a classic and sophisticated celebration that incorporated their love for all things Austin.

We began by creating a classic invitation suite with a custom crest, deep, marsala silk ribbon, and a gold wax seal. The marsala color was carried throughout the wedding in the bridesmaid dresses, florals, and table settings. We then created depth and dimension in the florals by combining shades of blush pink and cream, along with touches of greenery.

Stay tuned for Part II where we’ll share photos of the reception. Thanks to the team of amazing vendors that helped us to make everything possible!
