Hope Taylor is a senior portrait and wedding photographer based in Fredericksburg, VA. She is also an educator, believer, speaker, industry encourager, and the founder of the Senior Photography Workshop. Hope is a lover of rainbow sprinkled donuts, cozy fuzzy socks, and coffee mugs (minus the coffee).

Hope started her business at fifteen years old. After her high school graduation, Hope made the decision to continue running her business full time instead of attending a four-year university. Now, three years into her business, Hope offers workshops, mentoring and online resources for all photographers and business owners. 

Hope has a special place in her heart for young entrepreneurs that are facing the same struggles she faced while growing her business. Owning a business is hard at any age, but starting in high school or college brings its own unique set of battles. Her goal is to equip all attendees at The Gathering with the practical tools and encouragement they need to tackle their business without fear of failure.
