We’re so excited to share our interview with our President and one of our valued photographers, Taylor Fisher!
Tell us about your business, Taylor Jones Photography.
“My husband, Mike, and I are a husband and wife wedding photography team based out of Nathrop. We started shooting together when we met in 2012 and immediately hit it off–both romantically (obvee) and professionally! We absolutely love shooting where we live, with couples we love, beside who we love. It’s truly a blessing I never thought I’d get the chance to do when I started this path when I was 12 years old. How many people still love what they did when they were 12?!
We love creating heirlooms for our couples and especially love the relationship we develop with them for years after their wedding. We shoot their pregnancies and watch them become parents. They come to our home for dinner and campouts and we just adore everyone we get the honor of working with.”
How long have you lived in the area and what brough you here?
“We moved to Nathrop (on a whim, mind you) in 2016. We were visiting Buena Vista and “accidentally” drank too much wine, called a realtor to look at some land, and three weeks later had sold our home in Conifer, bought our 43 acre ranch with a rundown house, and moved into our camper to start renovations. It was a WILD year for us.”
Are you a mountains or water gal?
“Definitely mountains! Don’t get me wrong, I love the ocean and bodies of water (which Colorado does not have, despite what the natives consider “lakes”), but I can get my fix of water anytime. Nothing else in the world has ever made me pack up my life and move across the country to start a new life like Mount Princeton did for me.”
Where are you from initially?
“I grew up and went to college in Morgantown, West Virginia! Mike grew up in Parker, Colorado and he was one of the first natives I ever met (like a Sasquatch sighting).”
If you could be a part of any celebrities wedding (alive, deceased, fictional character, whatever!), whose would it be?
“Hands down: Jim and Pam Halpert. I would have paid any amount of money for that Niagara Falls elopement!”
What do you love most about being a part of weddings?
“Honestly…everything. My entire soul is on fire at weddings. I love the energy, the people, the emotion, the vendors…I love that it literally “takes a village” to make a wedding happen for two wonderful human beings. I love the relationship we make with our couples and that we’re a part of their lives forever.”
Tell us a little bit about what you’re doing when you’re not working?
“Truthfully, chances are I’m still shooting! I love to shoot. But when the camera is down, we really love anything with wheels: jeeping, ATVing, mountain biking, riding the motorcycle…anything that will get us into the mountains faster! We also love fishing, hiking, cafe hopping, and hunting.”
What do you love most about where we live?
“The adventure and the community! Our valley has endless adventures just minutes from home, which is one of the reasons we moved here. We’ve developed friendships and relationships like no others we’ve experienced anywhere else we’ve lived. It’s truly a magical place that we live in.”
If you could have any other job in the world what would it be?
“This is SUPER embarrassing, but when I was a kid I wanted to be a marine biologist, I had the humpback whale t-shirts to prove it. But let me clarify: I’m AWFUL at science, so I really just wanted to swim with whales. Something I still have not done.
Mike wanted to be a garbage man so he could ride on the outside of a truck…while it was moving.”
What was the last song you listened to (on purpose)?
“Rob Thomas/Matchbox 20 all day. But my last played song was by Needtobreathe. Mike currently has Dierks Bentley’s new album on repeat.”
