Taylor Swift Definitely, Maybe Hired a Professional Photographer for Her 4th of July Party

Did you think those envy-inducing, red-white-and-blue clad photos at Taylor Swift’s now-infamous 4th of July party were taken on someone’s iPhone?

Well, think again.

According to the Daily Mail, Swift hired a personal professional photographer to take photos of her and all of her pals (including but not limited to: Gigi Hadid, Karlie Kloss, KeshaUzo Aduba, Ruby Rose, the Haim girls, Cara Delevingne, Blake Lively, and of course Swift’s new bae Tom Hiddleston) all day long.

Because of course, she did.

Hiddleston was a willing participant in many pics, be it cuddling up for a couple’s photo (with Swift’s childhood friends, Lively, and Ryan Reynolds, whose face says all that needs to be said) or leading a group down the waterslide.


Pretty cool runnings

If she didn’t before, she has now: Swift has done the most to cement her status as squad leader.

Happy 4th from us ❤️

At last, here are all the photos to prove it. If you’ve been seeing some of them around the web over the last 24 hours (probably), look through one last time, then never look at them again.
