Bailey reminisced, "Born in south Florida where I spent long days at the beach, countless hours at antique stores, and experimenting with film." This enchanting backdrop set the stage for a lifelong romance with photography. And get this: she was all of 16 when she photographed her first wedding. Just think about that for a moment!

With stars aligning in her favor, Bailey recalled, "I got extremely lucky and met two really talented photographers in my area." Her apprenticeship with these mavens, combined with a whirlwind of over 100 weddings, culminated in the birth of Bailey Ann Original.

Fast-tracking a decade later, Bailey's expertise has beautifully married the realms of photojournalism with editorial influence. She told us with evident passion, "I use Sony for all of my digital images and a film camera my grandfather passed down to me." This mix of modern and traditional, digital and film, creates a breathtaking dance of lights and shadows in her art.

But don't be mistaken; while the digital photos might see a touch of enhancement, she maintains, "I don't usually edit my film images other than minor corrections." Ah, the sanctity of raw moments!

What sets Bailey apart? Her philosophy. "My favorite thing about being a photographer," she mused, "is getting the privilege to be a part of something that is so extraordinary." It's not just about the snapshots; it's the stories, emotions, and memories interwoven in them.

This emotional depth extends to her client interactions. As Bailey puts it, "To understand them and their needs... Every couple is so different." For her, it's a quest to unravel the threads of authentic emotions to produce images that tug at heartstrings.

I definitely lived there in a past life." Isn't that dreamy?

In wrapping up, we hope this deeper dive has left you as enchanted with Bailey Templeton as we are. Here's to the magic behind the lens, and the passionate souls that make it all happen.
