"I simply capture the stories"

Thumbtack Best Pro of 2015

I have been an artist within many mediums throughout my career including 30+ years as a graphic / web designer and 20+ years in the print industry. I built up my clientele in New York, New Jersey, South Carolina, Seattle, California, Florida, Canada and now call North Carolina my home!.

With an extended knowledge of color, offset printing, graphic/web design, I decided to put myself behind the lens to get custom shots for professional use.


I am located in Charlotte, N.C. but travel the world. My studio is located Charlotte, NC.

"Our engagement photography session with Rich Taylor exceeded our expectations. From the first point of contact Rich was accommodating and offered many recommendations, which made the planning process effortless. Considering we have not been in the area long, Rich helped us choose a location for the pictures, which ended up being beautiful and exactly what we were looking for. He was enthusiastic about us bringing our dog to be in the photos, which made our day, and also offered advice concerning outfits, props, and day of weather. Rich arrived to our session promptly and ready to go. From the very start, he made us feel extremely comfortable and made sure we were embracing our true personalities in the pictures. Rich truly has an artful eye, and found beauty all around the park, even in places we least expected. We weren't just taking pictures, but we had fun! Rich is patient, easy-going, and did not rush our session at all. Our engagement photos were ready for viewing very soon after the session, which made the whole experience that much better! We did not have to wait around to see the photos, in fact, we were able to see a few teasers the very same day! Each and every photo is beautiful, creative, and captures our true emotions. Rich has maintained an open line of communication throughout the entire process, he has made it clear that he is more than willing to listen, help, and fix anything necessary. We will absolutely be using Rich Taylor for additional services in the future. Absolutely a 5-star experience!!"

"We recently blended our families and moved to a different area of Charlotte. We were looking for a photographer to shoot family photos, and Rich was one of five that quoted a session for me. I was a little worried about choosing the right one, but after speaking with Rich and reading the feedback, I was comfortable that I had made the right choice. Rich was easy-going, accommodating, and he worked well with our two boys, who were less than enthusiastic about getting their pictures taken over-and over again. The session went smoothly, and Rich guided us to make sure the photos looked natural. I couldnt have been happier with the outcome. Photos were beautiful and well worth the money. I have already recommended him to three of our friends."

"Rich captured beautiful photographs of the sweet moments leading up to my wedding. His easy-going and confident nature immediately put us to ease, and we so greatly appreciated his leadership throughout the session, as well as encouragement to allow room for own creativity to blossom. Rich sent "sneak peek" photos very soon after, as promised, and has been reliable and communicative throughout the whole process. If you're looking for a creative, quality photographer to film something special, you've found the right one."

"We were very pleased about hiring Rich for our daughter's first birthday. From the start Rich was very considerate and understanding about our requirements. He followed up before the event and on the day of the event he arrived earlier than promised. He captured our daughter's event beautifully and produced pictures to cherish. His pictures exceeded our expectations. Now we know whom to look for when we are in lookout for a photographer. Thank you so much Rich."
