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!

Burr Oak Elopement | Hey Thompsons!

I was ordained six months ago & was incredibly pleased that my first elopement took place at Burr Oak.

I got ordained in order to service my clients that choose to get married privately. I’m gonna sound like a robot on repeat if you follow me on social media, but I truly just want this drilled into your head.

It is 2019. You wanna have an intimate elopement in Burr Oak Woods? DO IT.

Bergundy has never been one for tons of attention. We’ve been friends since we were in High School & it’s just not her style. She’s known she’s wanted to marry Ryan for literal ages, and when she texted me to tell me he proposed at their cabin in Colorado, I SHRIEKED out loud in excitement. I’ve never seen a couple more fit for each other. Ryan is so laid back. He is determined. He is a hard worker who just wants the ability to provide and care for them both, their two dogs, and their cat, Bruce.

Spoiler alert, if you scroll down you’ll see their pups. Sade & Etta. Named for Sade Adu & Etta James. Ryan also LOVES old school soul. Every time I go visit them, I feel like it’s a Sunday morning and my mom has turned on the music to get up and clean. It’s relaxing and he loves to grab Bebe and dance with her in their living room.

Basically, I’m saying that when Bebe texted me and told me she was over the whole “big wedding” thing already and just wanted to get married quickly and privately, I understood. Later, she came back to tell me she just wanted me to do it. I was overjoyed. We picked up & with her best friend and Ryan’s brother and we headed to Burr Oak. I wrote a short and sweet ceremony, they said their I Dos and in the 30 degree weather, Bebe and Ryan declared their love for each other.

This fall, they’ll have a large party to celebrate with their other friends & family, but for now they got to do this. Love each other. In a pretty place and with the stress of a huge day off their shoulders.

Does this sound like something that interests you?

Head over to my contact form! I’m offering this service now & am so excited to do so!

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."
