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!

Anniversary at the Kansas Fair – Torri & Adrin

Old Shawnee days is a Kansas Fair that lacks cotton candy but oozes character anyway.

I’ve been aching to photograph a couple of cuties at some sort of fair/carnival for ages, but couldn’t find anyone who wanted to book at the same time one was coming into town. Someone told me about Old Shawnee Days and when I approached it with Torri, she was immediately down. I’d never been to a Kansas Fair before because long lines and huge crowds are usually a no go for me. However, I knew that we could make some magic with the crowds.

Having photographed Torri before, I knew she was outgoing, gorgeous as heck, and down for anything. We arrived at the jam packed park, our partners made themselves busy getting to know one another and we set off to find some spots to take photos.

As we couldn’t avoid the crowd, we embraced it and incorporated some fair-goers into our images and I think it says a lot for Torri and Adrin’s love that they are the focus of these photos anyway. So peruse and fall in love with colors upon colors. I haven’t had such a fun session in a while!

P.S – Getting on a Ferris wheel with your camera is very scary, 4/10 do not recommend unless you’re also wanting epic photos.

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."
