"Alana made myself and my husband feel so natural in front of the camera. She used her humour and soft nature to allow us to enjoy ourselves for all the photos rather than feel like we were models. She captured so many candid moments of our wedding. Alana sent us photos the next day so we could relive it as soon as possible and the package we received was carefully put together with a beautiful USB of thousands of photos plus some photos Alana had printed for us. I would recommend Alana to anyone that would listen. Her photos are as beautiful as she is.

"We engaged Alana for an in home lifestyle session at our home with our daughter Elkie to mark her 1st birthday.
My husband doesn't normally like to have his photo taken and with a 1 year old child you never know what to expect, but the afternoon we spent with Alana was so so easy, we went about doing the things we like to do at home and Alana just snapped away, the session didn't feel staged or intrusive at all. We cannot speak highly enough of Alana and the way she went about telling our story so beautifully. The photographs Alana took of our little family and our home will be with us forever and are the perfect way to remember Elkie at 1 year old. There is no doubt Alana is one talented lady! Thanks again Loz, Rob and Elkie xx"

"Alana is an incredibly talented artist who captured the magic in our day to day life. Not only is Alana the best at what she does she has the most beautiful personality making us feel completely comfortable. Out shoot was almost like we were just hanging out with a great friend but we have the most stunning images to cherish for a lifetime."

"Well where do I start! Alana!! What an incredibly beautiful soul! As for her work I don't need to talk that up because it speaks for itself, just take a look at a few of her photos. From the first day I met Alana I just knew she was one hell of an amazing person inside and out. If I were to describe Alana in a few words it would be....hard working, inspirational, talented and an artist that is able to see great things in her surroundings and in life itself, people like that are one in a million and the girl has class.The first day I met her I knew she had to be the photographer at my wedding! Yep that's right i knew straight away I wouldn't be able to find any better so I booked her in first before everything else. Alana had the ability to even make the two most awkward goofballs feel comfortable in front of the camera and we look back on our photos and feel like super stars. Alana has this beautiful sense of calmness, that she brings into a room and a contagious giggle that you just can't help but to smile and laugh along with. Alana went far and beyond for us at our wedding and all our guests still mention today how awesome they felt she was. The amount of times I've heard "oh your wedding photos look like they belong in a magazine" has been endless. When we first got the photos back me and my new husband sat down together and looked through them and the tears soon started rolling. Alana captured the most beautiful story for us and I don't think she missed a single thing, it actually wouldn't surprise me if she is secretly a superhero, honestly I don't know how she managed to do it. If I were to pick a regret from my day it would be that I didn't get a photo with Alana herself because I'm so in love with the photos and she deserves a photo in our wedding album. So if you are looking for the perfect photographer, look no further than Alana Taylor Photography because I'm one happy bride and I have thousands of breathtaking photos to remember our day by. Thanks so much Alana you beautiful star! Can't wait for the family photo sessions to come! Love the Kearney's!"

"My husband and I felt really awkward and nervous before our session with Alana. We needn't have though. As soon as Alana arrived we both felt like we had known her for years. She knew exactly when to speak and when to let us be in the moment. She guided us without making us do anything that felt unnatural or awkward and most importantly, we had a blast and laughed so much our stomach hurt.
I'm a slightly bigger girl and Alana made me feel and look amazing in the photos. They are still clearly me but she has used lighting and skill in to bring out the best of me which in turn means instead of liking a few of the photographs, I love them ALL.
I don't think anyone else compares to having Alana capture the story of you. And if you are weighing her up over anybody else, go meet her. Your heart will decide."
The Pepper Family
"We have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Alana, we found her by word of mouth for our daughter's christening and were beyond amazed with the photos she was able to capture, it was a no brainer when we welcomed our final member into our family that we wanted her to shoot this special time for us, she recommended a great location for the shoot and took the most amazing pictures of our children (they are currently spread cross our house). Her beautiful nature and warm personality has earned her a spot as our family photographer! We look forward to her shooting our sons christening next month and our yearly family photos! We LOVE Alana and her talent behind the lens!"

"Alana was a photographer that i will 100% use again in the future. She suited our personalities and the approach of our wedding - Relaxed, modern and chilled! The most special thing about Alana was that she snapped things throughout the day that I might not have got to see or notice being the busy bride. She told a story with her photos, which made it easy for me to see the day from start to finish. She captures the moment in its natural beauty. Everyone loved the photos and i have even had interest from magazines for her work. She is such a chilled out, modern day photographer! Something that most people are after and she shoots natural photos that tell a story."
Carly & Mitch
"Alana captured the most amazing day of our lives. She was professional, fun, adventurous and thought outside the square with her photography skills. We couldn't be happier with the end results of our wedding photos and have since referred her to family and friends and we look forward to her capturing our next adventure with our first baby!"
Mel, Grant, Kayley & Tate
"We had a family photo shoot with Alana and we couldn't be happier! She made us feel so at ease throughout the session and the photos turned out amazing! Not only did she capture beautiful family photos but was able to capture our kids personalities and we will forever have a great memory of that day."

"........Which then brings me to the next part of this post but the girl behind the lens this entire time has been Alana Taylor from Alana Taylor Photography. If you have an event coming up, you will forever regret not choosing this girl! 3 years ago when Chris first proposed and I as all gun-ho about wedding planning I put the call out on FB for a photographer and Alana was recommended by an old friend, as soon as is saw her pictures I knew she was the one for Chris and I. She was relaxed, none of those crappy formal super staged shots, just 100% real just like us!
Since then we have done our maternity pictures, newborn shoot, our little girls christening, Christmas pics, engagement shoot, and now our wedding. Not only do I now feel like she is part of our family, but I 100% feel like I have gained such a great friend. A girl I know I can chat to about anything because she has literally been there for so many important events in my life, she knows what makes us tick! These pictures that I've been sharing are pure emotion, nothing staged, nothing fake they are as real as they come!
That first maternity shoot in front of the camera Chris and I were so awkward never having anything like that done before and now we just role with punches Alana throws at us and the photos are magical!
The photos of us laughing are pure belly laughs, the photos of us having a moment are real! This is it guys, that was the day and Alana got it all!
I will forever look at these pictures and remember exactly what I was thinking or exactly what was said! There's a lot you don't remember about your wedding day because it's done in a flash but thanks to this amazing girl these are memories we will have forever.
All our love to this amazing girl - not just for your incredible work but because you're an amazing friend."
