I am based near Vancouver, B.C. but love to travel, and will go anywhere to capture your story!
I am all about connection, celebration, and showcasing every type of love that this world has to offer. I started building my portfolio in 2018 and have only continued to grow and learn more about myself, through this craft. Photography has given me a space to express my feelings through my creativity. My whole brand is built around connection. I don't want to just show up, feel awkward and take some photos that don't mean anything to me... I create relationships with my clients. I am your hype girl, your third wheel, and your friend, even after your gallery is delivered. Photography for me, is about telling stories through imagery that will last a lifetime. Without connection, I wouldn't be able to give you images that feel effortless and reflect your true self; the real you that only a friend can bring out of you.
So let's have a conversation, maybe a coffee, (or a drink if that's the vibe) connect, and then create beautiful memories together.
Taeya at t.f photography is AMAZING!! Finding a photographer was difficult - I looked through many websites, portfolios and I'd even done couples shoots with other photographers before deciding. What I've learned is that you need to find someone you just connect with. Someone passionate about their art but also committed to you and your vision. Out of all the photographers I've worked with, Taeya definitely stands out. It's as if you have your friend there making you smile and be yourself, while capturing you in your best light. She gets back to you so quickly, is so kind, professional, and honestly I just love her art so much! Her photos make us all look stunning and my husband and I are so impressed with the results! We haven't ever had good photos together until we met Taeya. We're so glad we found her and she was a blessing to work with! She's now done our engagement shoot, couple shoot, wedding, and my personal boudoir shoot and I highly recommend her for all your photography needs! I mean, just look at her portfolio!! SO MUCH TALENT!!
Although we were Taeya’s first wedding I never had a worry she was going to do an amazing job. She had done both our engagement photos and my boudoir photos previously and all were exactly what I was looking for. Not only do her photos capture a moment perfectly she is also very professional and passionate about what she does. She makes you feel very comfortable in front on the camera and is always prepared. Before the wedding we sat down and talked about exactly what I was looking for so on the day I never worried about her missing a moment I wanted. Looking at her work after the wedding I was blown away as not only did she take absolutely beautiful photos of my husband and I but also all of our guests. Since the wedding she has done photo shoots for my friends and I will be using her for my maternity photos.
All in all I would highly recommend her to anyone as we couldn’t have asked for a better photographer.
I was able to meet Taeya through my husband's friend, and wow I got so lucky! I gained amazing photo's and a friendship. She did my engagement and wedding photos and didn't disappoint. She lets you suggest locations, photo ideas, and editing styles you love. She's always thinking of fun prompts to get just the right reactions for photo's. She loves to experiment and it never disappoints. If you want someone dedicated to their work and brings you amazing photos in a timely manner she is the one to pick!
Brand Development Session
Taeya was such as pleasure to work with, she's super funny and makes you feel very comfortable during your photoshoot ! She managed to capture the beauty of my jewelry pieces in every shot and knew exactly what pose to set us up in to create such elegant pictures. Highly recommend for your brand development among her many other talents.
You have no idea what these images mean to me, I have struggled my whole life to see the beauty that people talk about when they see me, I have never been able to see it. I struggle every day with body dysmorphia and learning to love the skin that I'm in. You have given me a gift that nobody ever has, you have opened up my eyes to how beautiful and sexy I really am, and for that I can't thank you enough.
I would recommend this experience to anyone out there that has ever questioned their self love, felt uncomfortable in the skin they're in, or just need that boost of self confidence. I have struggled with loving myself, and this experience really opened my eyes to what others see, that I've never been able to. I fell in love with myself when I saw my images for the first time, and that right there is priceless.
The love session that I booked with Taeya for my boyfriend & I was AMAZING!! It was our first professional photography session so I was super nervous about it because I'm really awkward in front of the camera, but with Taeya as our photographer, she made it so easy and made us feel so comfortable!!
She captures the most precious and forever moments.
We will definitely be having Taeya do all of our future photography sessions!
Taeya was recommended to my fiancé and I by a few friends who had done a couple shoots with her before. We saw their photos and loved how they turned out. We were unhappy with our original engagement session done a few years prior, by another photographer and thought it was time for a redo. Taeya was amazing to work with from start to finish. From booking, hearing all of my ideas to get photos that were authentic to us, and even more amazing to work with on the day of. She understands that it can be super awkward in front of the camera and was great at directing us to get some beautiful shots. Her turnaround time was fast and the pictures turned out fantastic. Her work is high quality and I will use her again for any other photography I need. My fiancé and I are beyond happy with the photos we received.
Taeya was a phenomenal photographer!! I was feeling confident and she helped keep that positive vibe throughout the shoot. She made it fun and she really captured the real me. Taeya was very responsive and such an amazing hype girl. The pricing was right and the quality of the photos were fantastic! I will definitely be getting all of my important milestones in life captured by this amazing woman!
"These aren't just images, these are memories."
For me, photographing your session or wedding is about capturing the season of life that you are experiencing right now. I never want to fabricate your memories, I want to get to know you and then let you shine.
With that said, there is a right photographer out there for everyone; we are not a one size fits all industry.
I am the photographer for the hopeless romantics; The wanderers; The free spirited, windswept, and barefoot lovers. I am the photographer for the person who finds perfection in the imperfect. I am the photographer for the people who value authenticity, empowerment, deep connection, and all forms of art.
Love doesn't have to be confined to a relationship with someone else.
Self Love is just as important. Discover having an intimate and confident relationship with yourself.
Empowerment sessions are all about having a safe space to feel free of judgement. Love your body in whatever form feels comfortable. Indoors or outdoors - this is your session, there is no right or wrong, only love. Cherish the marks across your skin and the strength that flows through your veins. Your body has power and this is the time to embrace your beauty.
