Taylor is the better half, as she puts it, of a wedding and portrait studio known as Salvatore Cincotta Photography based in Ofallon, IL. Working together with her husband Sal Cincotta, they own and operate Salvatore Cincotta Photography and BehindtheShutter.com, a business training site for professional photographers.
Taylor’s true passion is weddings. “I love to shoot weddings, its a very fun and romantic time in the couple’s lives. We are definitely fortunate to be part of documenting this big event and it’s one we take very serious at our studio”.
“The one thing I have learned first hand is how important it is to give the customer an experience they will remember. What we offer goes so much further than just a picture. We offer an end-to-end experience to our clients and it’s one they will talk about over and over again. Its the best publicity and marketing you could hope for. And it doesn’t cost a dime”!
I love After Dark! It’s an amazing resource and it allows you to really get that one-on-one experience with the speakers.
How did you get started in the business? Who helped/guided/mentored you?
“Working with my husband and business partner, Sal has taught me everything I know. I have always loved photography. Elizabeth Messina is someone I look to for inspiration.”
“If you’re thinking about coming to another After Dark Event, remember to see the different speakers, topics, great exposure to great minds! If you’ve never been to After Dark Before, its the “unconference” so be prepared for a casual, hands on experience that is so personal-its in your face. ‘Life is what you make it. A quote by William Ernest Henley: I am the master of my fate – I am the captain of my soul.’ “
