This is us.

My name is Taylor (she/her). I am the person/mastermind/owner/creator/photographer of TMinspired Photography. I’m a destination elopement and wedding photographer. My husband is a videographer, and documenting love stories is our favorite way to spend weekends together.

We are based in both Seattle, Washington as well as Southern California, and travel back and forth quite a lot, (seriously, like basically once a month) as well as a lot of other places around the world to document weddings.

Here’s the way to my heart, real simply:

Did you just compliment my dog, give me some kombucha, a plate of street tacos (with chips and salsa – duh), and sit down with me for some one-on-one conversation as we soak up the light from a really pretty sunset?

Oh, wait. DID WE JUST BECOME BEST FRIENDS? Because you just made the perfect recipe, and the Enneagram 2 in me is now living her very best life.


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.

You can see some little glimpses of our story at: #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, check out local coffee shops, or we’re taking our 16 year old pup Lily on a walk at sunset. This nugget also has her very own IG account (yes, I became THAT dog mom) @LittleLilyCujo on a walk at sunset.

In the spring of 2019, we relocated from Southern California to Seattle, WA. I grew up near Portland, so being back in the PNW makes me feel like I’m right back home. Nathan and I are embracing the PNW adventure as it comes, and we are absolutely loving it so far.

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.
