  • Weddings can be chaotic, but that doesn't mean you can't capture special moments.
  • This woman started a business as a wedding content creator to capture the behind-the-scenes on your special day.
  • She charges her clients between R21 331 to R24 744 for four, six or eight-hour packages.

Meet 29-year-old Taylor Richards. She recently got married and realised that her photographer took a long time to send her wedding images and videos.

She wanted to post special moments from her wedding day on her social media platforms. However, she couldn't, so she saw an opportunity to start a business for couples to post on social media while waiting for professional photographers to send them their wedding footage.

Taylor created her company, called BACH'D, dedicated to documenting all the behind-the-scenes and special moments at weddings to share immediately with her clients' followers on social media. Describing herself as the bride and groom's best friend for the day.

Taking to TikTok, she explained to users what she actually does, "The reason why I started was because I felt like there was something missing in the wedding industry. I like to call myself a little bonus to your photos and videos because I can provide that now factor, and that now factor was missing," she says.

"A lot of couples aren't able to get their professional photos and videos for, like, a month, and it can even exceed a month and the fact that they're able to have hundreds of videos and photos on their phone, the night of their wedding is major," she adds.

"You will be able to relive your whole entire day within 24 hours. I capture things that most people don't notice and are not there for because the couple's all over the place. I also become your little bestie for the day, which is fun."

Someone in the comment section of that video asked her what sets her apart.

She responded by saying, "All of my content is raw; I don't edit one thing. The only thing I edit will be our TikTok that we do, or if you opt out of TikTok and you want an Instagram reel, I will edit that for you.

"Other than that, you are not receiving a 10, 7 or 5-minute long video. This will all be little clips throughout the day. It's all at your fingertips."

She was also asked if she travels to her clients' weddings, and she responded by saying she travels 99 per cent of the time. Taylor also spoke to Insider and said that she charges between $1 250 and $1 450 per wedding and offers couples four, six or eight-hour packages.
