Taylor Brown

Taylor Brown is a wedding and portrait photographer who has been working in the photography and camera industry since 2007.

About Taylor

“Personally, I shoot both film and digital. I typically photograph people and occasionally a dog or two.   I also shoot weddings and assist a local wedding photographer – Katy Trefry, who has been in the business for several decades. Shooting weddings has given me the skills to shoot under many lighting situations and to think quickly as the day never goes exactly to plan. I get to shoot everything from details to portraits and even landscapes. It’s incredibly rewarding.”

Joel Wiebner

Joel Wiebner is a wedding and portrait photographer who has been involved in professional photography and imaging since 1997.

About Joel

“First and foremost, I like making things and sharing them with people. I like to think I am a painter expressing myself with a camera and print. I have been a professional photographer for most of the 21st Century. I even did a few paying jobs in the days of film. I like shooting all kinds of cameras, but I would not consider myself to be a gear head. It’s not the stuff for me, but the process that starts with an idea and ends with a thing.

I am familiar with all kinds of cameras from film to digital. If you need help learning how to operate your shiny new digital capture machine I can help with that. If you found a dusty bakelite treasure in a box of amazing things and you really want to make images with it, I can help with that. I know about flash and the sun. I can talk at length about taking pictures of people and stuff. Photoshop is not a mystery to me. I have been using the software since version 3 in 1994. I love the art in photography, but I can also talk about the science. You just tell me what you want to talk about.
