Taylor Martin Photography

About Me

Hello, my name is Taylor Martin and I am a lifestyle photographer based in the beautiful state of Tennessee. I've been involved in the art of photography for almost ten years now, but I did not fully dive in until about five years ago. If we are going to discuss this, I believe it is best for me to take you all a little back. . . .

The Simple Shots Era

I was 15 years old when I decided photography was not a hobby- it was a passion. When it came time to giving my business a name- I thought, "Oh well, I want to be different." I didn't think naming my photography business after me was a good call- mainly because it was intimidating. Putting my own name by images? Risky. I did not think I was good enough for that. So, I came up with Simple Shots Photography - and it stayed....for years. But during those years, I wanted to gain more knowledge, I wanted to become better. I learned from my past mistakes, experimented with different types of lighting, second shot for some incredible photographers, invested in newer equipment, and learned more editing techniques. Throughout time, I began to photograph more and more- and eventually began to move onto bigger things like weddings. 

At the beginning of 2017, I knew I needed to take more risks. I knew that I had to stop holding back, stop the self-doubt. I thought what better way to start then by changing the name of my photography business? Thus, I took the leap of faith and changed the name to Taylor Martin Photography. I completely changed everything about my business and I haven't stopped since.

So Here We Are

Since the major business change, I've been busier than ever and I absolutely love it. I believe that if you are incredibly passionate about something- it's good for you to challenge yourself. Step outside of the box and think, "What's next? How can I top what I just did?" It's important to continue to learn and push yourself.

In September of 2017, I kept having visions of a shoot inside my head. I knew that I wanted it to be different from any type of work that I had done. I wanted it to seem as if it was not "my style."  With the help of my incredibly talented friend, Olivia, we were able to bring these images to life.

Create the work that you wish to create.


The Alter Ego 


Why I Do It

I love capturing moments in time. I love making people smile. I love seeing clients faces light up when they see their photos. Honestly, I love making people feel beautiful. We need photography in our world. We need that connection we feel when we see an image. Whether that image is from your birthday party, the day you married the love of your life, or just simply a moment with your family. I strive to tell stories. When I am behind the lens, the story is all up to me.
