Your Kansas City wedding photographer who truly believes

your day,
your way.

It’s 2019. You shouldn’t have to do anything for your wedding that doesn’t make your heart sing. Hire the magician, fly to Mexico, eat the BBQ. Just make sure you hire exactly who you want to capture the magic as it happens.

If you’d like to know how effortless it can feel to let go and dance in front of the camera or steal a kiss between shutter clicks? I got you.

i believe that you deserve photos that look like you

Sound legit?

let's do THIS!

Hey, I'm Tay!

I'm a kansas city dwellin', book lovin', camera totin' lady who is just doing her best out here in the midwest.

You deserve a photographer with a little pizazz, a lot of personality, and above all, one that will advocate for you. That's exactly what I'm here to do.

lgbtq+ friendly wedding vendors in kansas city

Are you in an LGBTQ+ relationship in the KC area?

this one's for you

In the past couple of years I've had so many couples reach out to me nervous and hopeful. They were turned away by other photographers, venues, etc. for daring to love someone similar to themselves. It has become my primary goal to be a safe space for these couples to find vendors who will accommodate them.

As an LGBTQ+ woman in a heterosexual marriage, I know what it feels like to be unseen. At our own wedding, my husband and I only hired vendors we knew would gladly be a vendor even if I had married a woman.

I created this vendor list to help guide you through the wedding process and update it quarterly. Have you had a LGBTQ+ wedding vendor that you love? E-mail me at mail@hey-tay.com. I'd love to add them to the list. 

I'm In. Tell me more.

You deserve photos that help you relive an amazing day again and again. Photos that tell a story that you'll wanna repeat to everyone you meet.

It's all about your
Wedding Experience

I can't recommend Tayanna highly enough. Not only were our pictures beautiful, but also she was an incredibly wonderful person to work with. She responds to emails quickly, and was flexible and organized. On our wedding day, it was awesome to have her around: she was fun and positive, and made bridal party pics and family pics actually fun and enjoyable. She's the best.

"She's the best."

I am absolutely blessed to have chosen Tay for my elopement, both as a photographer and an ordained minister. It was an intimate ceremony and something so special that I will never forget. The ceremony and photos took place in the very cold snow, because I love snow! Tay was a champ making sure I got the best possible images that would bring back memories of this day forever! I have already had many people tell me that they were some of the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! 😊 if you’re planning on eloping or need photos for your big wedding, Tay is your girl!

"Tay is your girl!"

Tayanna is amazing! Her pictures are beautiful, she listens to exactly what you are looking for, helps you come up with a timeline for your big day and makes you feel comfortable having your picture taken. She was recommended to me by 2 friends whose wedding pictures I loved and after meeting with her I knew she was the one to capture our wedding day. Now I'm recommending her to you! Hire her. You'll be so happy you did!

"Hire her."
