Zenith Vineyard Wedding: Kelli + Logan

Having known Nick for many years, it was truly a special privilege to have a “front row” seat at their wedding. The celebration took place at the Troutdale House just down the street from Troutdale’s quaint downtown strip. Despite the January chill, these two love birds braved the cold with warm smiles and thankful hearts. […]

Troutdale House Wedding: Nicholas and Rebecca

   This wedding at Best Western Hood River was personally so refreshing for me. It was a reminder of why I shoot weddings in the first place. Yes, the schedule was way off, the rain was coming in torrents, and our portrait time was squished into 20 minutes. But despite all these discouraging odds, looking […]

Hood River Best Western Wedding: Rob + Brooke

Off-camera flash is a trick I pull out of my back pocket every single wedding. I guess, at that point, it’s not much of a trick anymore- but you get the idea 😉  As you probably know, between low-light and moving subjects, dancing shots are not easy to capture. Usually I’m sweating, and laughing, and […]

Sometimes you get this idea in your head and can’t rest till it comes to fruition. Such was my experience with the beauty that is Oneonta Gorge. Situated in the recesses of the Oregon gorge, it’s photo magic waiting to happen.    As my friends know, I’m not much of a writer, but I just had […]

It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 

WE ARE SOULMATES

Long before I was engaged, I knew I wanted Christa Taylor Photography to capture the special moments of my wedding. She more than met our expectations, and seldom a month goes by without somebody telling us how gorgeous our wedding pictures turned out! 
 Working with Christa is like finding some awesome girlfriend who completely gets you and can show you the beauty in whatever project you're undertaking. I recommend her to every bride I work with! Thank you, Christa, for your incredible work!

Christa is absolutely PHENOMENAL! My husband and I are beyond blessed to have had her capture our day! She was so great at directing people kindly and having fun too! She's a blast and we enjoyed the day more because of her! We loved getting to know her and she even had us to her home the week after our wedding for a brief photo shoot since the weather had been bad on the wedding day...she really went above and WAY beyond the call of a photographer and became our friend! She's the type we'd schedule a photo shoot with simply to see her and catch up!! Her baby is the cutest most joyful girl just like her momma! 💕There are not words to reccomend Christa highly enough! 💕We love you Christa!!
