About

I pour my heart and soul into my work
because celebrating love is what I do best.

My name is Taylor, the person behind TMinspired Photography. I’m a destination elopement and wedding photographer. My husband Nathan and I are based in both Seattle, Washington as well as Southern California. We travel back and forth quite a lot, as well as a lot of other places around the world. You can read more about us and our love story down below.

Moments of genuine, human connection amps me up – way more than a cup of coffee with 2 add shots of espresso ever will.

As a photographer, I believe that moments and memories are everything. (Please insert clap emoji’s for every syllable because that will show you how much I really mean it) I strive to dive deeper and document the moments that really make you FEEL.

These are the moments you'll get to take hold of and enjoy for the rest of your life. So let's do it right.
You know what I'm sayin'?

I believe that storytelling can make an impact, and I’d love the opportunity to tell yours.

I am not a photographer who focuses on one pose after another – I give guidance when needed to make sure that beautiful and artist photographs are captured for you – but I LOVE to document moments as they unfold in front of me. When we work together, I ask you to trust me, and let me take a step into your world.

As a lover of natural light, my heart jumps at the chance to soak up the radiant glow of sunsets, the dramatic mood of blue hour, and the romance that can be found in the pouring down rain. I prefer to embrace any weather condition and I ask my couples to do the same. I believe that even the smallest moment can hold great adventure.

So let's embrace the wild journey of love.

On your wedding day, I want you to take a step back and enjoy this celebration you've spent so much time and energy making this day happen. You've done the hard work, and now it's my turn. You can simply let go and let me handle the documentation of it.

The more I know you, the more I’m able to capture your genuine connection with one another. I deeply believe in vulnerability, and the more I am able to know you, the more depth you’ll find in your final gallery.

I know how much a wedding day can feel like a whirlwind. I've done it before myself, and I've captured so many weddings and see the behind the scenes that take place. Seriously. I GET IT. Wedding planning is no joke. But I'm with you every step of the way.

I’ve been photographing weddings for nearly a decade. I know a thing or two by now, so you can be confident and use my experience to your advantage.
I've got you.

I love how each wedding is unique in it’s own way. I embrace that whenever possible. I’m not afraid to ask for what I need, and you won’t be left in the dark in the process. I help create timelines, family shot lists, and connect with you about what is most important to YOU about your wedding day. I use all that info so I can be 100% prepared to work with you on your wedding day, and document it as it unfolds organically.

I always look for pockets of time where they’re able to simply pause, take it all in, and fully embrace the moment.

Your wedding day should feel like the most epic celebration of your love.
I'm here to help make that happen.

LET'S GET MUSHY

as I talk about my own marriage for a sec.

My husband, Nathan and I have been together 10 years, and got married ourselves in October of 2017.

#OchoaYearsAndCounting

As High School sweethearts, we grew up together. Life can throw you a lot of curveballs, but we’ve stayed strong through the help of Jesus, who has been at the center of our relationship. In our free time, we seek out delicious tacos, coffee, or we’re taking our 14 year old pup Lily (#LittleLilyCujo) on a walk at sunset (or on a hike now that we’re in the PNW).

We believe that love is love, and we have a deep passion for documenting that love.

I've gotta say, we make a great team.
He's is my primary second shooter on wedding days and even started his own videography company, Ochoa Wedding Films.

In the summer of 2015, he planned a really beautiful proposal a the top of Angel’s Rest in the Columbia Gorge at sunset. Man, does this guy know my heart. We had a two year engagement, and did our wedding planning from out of state for a wedding in the Portland, OR area. Two weeks out from our wedding, we found out that we were displaced from our dream venue due to the Eagle Creek fire in the gorge. We were absolutely devastated. We scrambled to re-plan our entire wedding in just 5 days. So many things went “wrong,” but we knew from the start the wedding DAY isn’t what will make our marriage great. We knew that the little details didn’t matter. In the end, we had the most magical wedding, because it was uniquely “us,” and we were focused on celebrating our journey together – and ultimately, our love. Not just a party for our friends and family. We left that evening to spend the next 4 days in my favorite place in the world, Cannon Beach, for our mini-moon, and it was truly like a dream. God is so good and His timing is always perfect.

Nathan is the absolute love of my life. He constantly supports and encourages my dreams. He gently nudges me to step outside of my comfort zone. He stands strong for me when I’m shaking with fear, but is vulnerable and kind in his own weaknesses. One of the best decisions I’ve ever made was to marry him. I’m so grateful for the constant growth of our relationship, and the chance to work together and photograph precious moments for other people that step into our lives.
