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!

Nelson Atkins Museum Anniversary Session – Lauren + Cole

 

What is more Kansas City than an anniversary session at the Nelson Atkins Museum? Especially one with a fellow wedding photographer and artist.

Answer? Nothing. Lauren, Cole & I headed out there this past weekend with a bottle of champagne, the top layer of their cake, and a dream. A dream to photograph the best damn anniversary session there ever was.

 I think we accomplished it.

Lauren’s friend gave them a bunch of milestone gifts with the champagne being the last, so it got its own space in these photos as well as the coveted 1-year cake layer. I love asking my brides how they felt about the top layer a year later, and I’ve never gotten a positive review until now. Lauren and Cole shared lemon cake on their wedding day and froze it ’til day of the session and said it was still very freaking delicious.

But wait, there’s more

Lauren’s also a photographer! If you’d like to see her work (and I know you would) click here! I always get nervous as heck every time I photograph another creative, but they’re also some of my favorite sessions to do. My wacky ideas are never questioned, they pretty much pose themselves, and I know I’m biased but the photos always come out beautifully.

So happy anniversary, Lauren & Cole! I’m so excited to see what your future brings for your marriage and your business as you’re so talented!

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."
