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. Especially since a Nelson atkins Museum Anniversary Session is a sight to behold.

 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!

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!!!
