This is us.
My name is Taylor (she/her/hers). I am the person/mastermind/owner/creator of TMinspired Photography. I’m a destination elopement and wedding photographer.
My husband Nathan (he/him/his) is a videographer via Ochoa Wedding Films. Documenting love stories is our favorite way to spend weekends together.
Get this: We are based in both Seattle, Washington as well as Southern California. With our family still in SoCal, we travel back and forth quite a lot. (Seriously, like basically once a month) as well as all around the world – wherever weddings take us.
I guess you could say we are each other’s biggest supporters and cheerleaders.
I’ve gotta say, we make a great team.
OKAY NOW LET’S GET MUSHY
as I talk about my own marriage for a sec.
My husband, Nathan and I have been together for over 10 years. 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 our faith. In our free time, we seek out delicious tacos, check out local coffee shops, or going on a walk together at sunset.
We got married in October of 2017, moved from Southern California to Seattle in 2019, and purchased our first home in Puyallup, WA in the spring of 2021. 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.
We had to say goodbye to the love of our lives, Lily. She was a nearly-17-year-old Yorkie and as dedicated parents we know eventually we will welcome another pup into our hearts. For now, we’re focused on healing. We’ve dedicated a rainbow garden to her at our home. The color yellow will forever be my reminder of our little sunshine.

ABOUT OUR ENGAGEMENT + WEDDING:
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 from Orange County, California for our wedding in the Portland, Oregon 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.
Nathan is the absolute love of my life. He constantly supports and encourages my dreams, gently nudges me to step outside of my comfort zone, and stands strong for me when I’m shaking with fear. He is also 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.
