Artist Statement

Taylor Hess Photography captures memorable moments with sincerity, honesty, and authenticity and turns it into physical photographs to share with your family and friends. I am passionate about photography because my photographs tells a personal story that people can remember for the rest of their lives. I love photographing couples showing their love for one another on their wedding day, and families bonding and coming together for a reunion. I care about the photograph session as well as the printing process because then I can give these wonderful people physical memories that they can show in their home to their friends and family forever. I am a creative, positive, and motivated photographer. I pay careful attention to detail and I am personable and easy to work with as well.
