HIYO, I'M TAYLOR

I feel everything. It's a gift. It's a curse. It's just my nature. I'm a fairly organized big kid who has spent most of my life watching too many movies and reading too many books - specifically of the fantasy and fiction breed. My daydreams often get in the way of my reality. Fortunately, my job is my passion and it is my life, and daydreaming is part of that. Those dreams are almost always inspired by my surroundings, wherever I am, and how I might make it come to life behind the lens of my camera - my favorite place to be.  

I am a dogmom and stepmom to two awesome little human monkeys courtesy of their father and my partner in life. We do hella rad stuff together like renovate 100-year-old homes, turn ratty Volkswagens into stance pieces, watch endless Youtube tutorials on how to build custom furniture, camping hacks, and poach the perfect egg. It's those little moments that make a relationship real - the things you do in-between. Those are the pieces I look for behind my camera, the small moments that connect the two of you - the messy, the haven't-showered-in-three-days-because-Netflix, the cozy and comfortable, the silly and goofy, the lovey-dovey real you.

Some Stuff I Like:

  • Harry Potter Always

  • My Goldendood, Norman

  • Ice Cream/IPA's/Greek Salads

  • The way Home Depot smells

  • Camping/Mtn. Biking/Barefoot

  • Justin

Some Stuff I Don't Like:

  • Walking through spider webs

  • Slow drivers in the left lane

  • Porters/Brown Ales/Bleu Cheese

  • Couch hangs without blankets

  • The inability to teleport

 

What’s up! I’m Justin

I am a big kid who wears a lot of hats and loves every one of them. I’m a regular Clark Kent, a businessman by day, superhero by night. My power is the ability to adapt. I’m a father of two amazing kids. I’m also a dog-dad to a Goldendood named Norman. I am a mountain biker, a snowboarder, always a student, a photographer, a videographer, a car guy, a coffeeholic, and a dreamer. My passions all intertwine with one another, which makes me pretty happy to be me. However, happiness is only real when it’s shared, and lucky for me I have the very best partner to be happy with, you probably already know her…

 We have traveled the world, built cars, tackled homeownership (meaning suffered through renovations), built businesses, solved countless problems, grown together, and shared about 5,110 cups of coffee.

 I have always had an interest in photography and Taylor has been instrumental in me fueling the fire and continuously learning new skills. I love shooting cars, mountain bikers, landscapes, and pretty much anything that is important. Most of all though, I love to capture the things that are hard to put into words. Things like the look you give your person after they lean in close to whisper a joke that only you would get. Things like the way your hand meets the hand of your partner and seems to come together in such a cosmically perfect way that it’s hard to describe but somehow shows through a photo. That keeps me going, being able to preserve micro-moments and protect memories.
