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!

Nerman Museum Anniversary Session | Logan + Alisha


The Nerman museum is absolutely beautiful, even just on the outside. It was the perfect spot for photos of Logan and Alisha.

I recently switched all of my camera equipment to Nikon (blog post coming soon) and I’ve been taking every excuse to play with the system lately. I went to college with Logan, he’s a fellow photographer although he’s taken up videography lately,and he’s pretty great if I do say so myself. One day, I hope I can convince him to video weddings one day. I’m crossing my fingers.

Logan’s a vibrant extrovert to Alisha’s quiet and thoughtful introversion. It was so cute to photograph their true interactions. I have countless photos of Alisha looking completely flummoxed at Logan’s posing. He was also always so quick to sweep her up and cover her in kisses when asked, though. I wanted to blog those sweet moments as well as what others would consider “outtakes”. I know in my own photos that I cherish the most where I’m looking at my partner as if he’s insane.

I’d also like to head off the questions before they’re asked because Alisha has serious freaking style. Her outfit is from Mokuyobi and they have all sorts of cute outfits, patches, backpacks, etc. Go nuts!

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."
