get to know me more!

i'm a wedding and portrait photographer in kansas city!

I fell in love with creating a space for people to be themselves several years ago. Since then I have photographed so many people who care about each other deeply and I love sharing their stories with anyone who will listen.

Hey, I'm Tay!

Family Tree Nursery Engagement | Meredith + Hannah

 

Finding places to take photos in the cold can be tough. Luckily, Family Tree Nursery in Overland Park was down to let us hang out.

Always call ahead to places like this open to the public, and 9 times out of 10 you’ll find that they’re great about it. We stayed to the edges and made sure not to bother anyone, which worked out in our favor as we more or less had the lay of the land. There were beautiful big green trees outdoor, some really nice indoor fronds, and more.

Before the session, Hannah made sure to tell me that her and Meredith weren’t those “serious” couples that took the model photos and was able to keep a straight face while staring ahead. I love couples who know exactly who they are and can tell me how to shoot. You never wanna receive photos back and say “who are these people?”

We took from Family Tree Nursery on to Downtown Overland Park where we took advantage of Hannah and Meredith’s last name to be. I’ll give you two guesses.

It’s Brick.

See how this builds into my brand? A perfect bun? Their hashtag is even #AnotherBrickintheWall

Their adorable sense of humor coupled with their philosophy not to take life too seriously was one of the many reasons we were obviously a good fit for one another. Take a quick peek at their wedding if you wanna see more of these lovebirds. They were absolutely adorable, took great direction, and were made to give each other goo goo eyes for life.

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.

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."
