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.

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
