Historic Tapoco Lodge Wedding in North Carolina | Abby & Dominic | Taylor English Photography

This is it, guys - Justin’s very first solo wedding! After shooting with me for the last 4 years, we finally felt it was time for him to strike out on his own. I think he killed it, personally! Allowing Justin to book weddings on his own has been such an exciting new experience, and has created room for us to grow in ways I never expected to. We love shooting together, of course, but when an amazing couple like Abby and Dom reaches out and tells us that it just has to be us who photographs their wedding, and I’m already booked - well, it was the perfect excuse to jump all in! Since Justin has shot by my side for so long, I knew he’d be able to emulate my shooting style, not to mention, he’s got a winning personality that charms the wedding party and guests! I am so proud of him, and stoked for all the growth he’s made since shooting this fall wedding in North Carolina!

Abby and Dom are an incredible couple. He’s from England, which makes him that much cooler. Plus they met on a recreational soccer team in Arizona before moving to Chattanooga, Tennessee together. They had friends and family from all over the world join them to celebrate their nuptials in western North Carolina. I still can’t get over Dom’s suit or the gorgeous jewel tones of the bridesmaid dresses! Oh, and they’re fellow Potterheads! Basically a match made in heaven over here for us, and I’m so glad they trusted Justin to capture their wedding for TEP!
