“Thayer Allyson Gowdy lives the good life, or so it looks in her photographs.” - Michelle Golden for PDN Magazine
The effortlessness of it, the wish you there feeling you get from her images. They are authentic, intimate and tell the story of love, family, friends and the visceral feeling of being in far away places. The sounds, the smells, the heat off stone walls, a dress blowing in the wind off the Balearic sea. The loving looks, the hand at the small of the back, the exploding hearts and teary eyes. Folks dressed to the nines. A chance to capture love and merriment.
Thayer is most often traveling to far flung places capturing sun drenched weekends with wedding guests leading up to ceremonies in cinematic settings. Her ability to spend time with everyone and capture the sweet time of gathering and connection in an unobtrusive manner is something clients deeply appreciate and embrace.
Named one of the top wedding photographers in the World by Harpers Bazaar and regular contributor to Martha Stewart Weddings.
She is based in the Valley of the Moon. A citrus drenched town below the Topa Topa mountains in Ojai, California.
