Kansas City River Market Anniversary – Grace + Colby

 

Kansas City’s River Market is one of my favorite photo spots. It’s perfect for families, weddings, and in our case… Anniversary photos.

Last year I photographed Grace’s boudoir photos in a cute downtown Airbnb. I immediately fell in love with her quick wit, quirky personality, & easy going nature. She’s a photographer herself, so it was an honor for her to trust me with these photos. She photographs all the stuff I never could. She also does a great damn job at it! If you’d like to see Grace’s food and lifestyle work, click here.

We originally found each other through twitter & over the past year I’ve gotten to live vicariously through her “weekend in photos” series. She’s constantly out here living her best life and I’m totally envious. Through these posts I’ve also gotten to “meet” who she affectionately only refers to as “boyfriend”.

It was immediately easy to see how these two fit. From their in sync and yet still somehow completely random noise making, to their loving giggles and stolen kisses throughout the session. Their first date was a trip to Chicago after meeting at a mutual friend’s epic and annual “Dive Prom” and the rest is history. My partner and I solidified our love for each other by taking an extended and intensive trip early in our relationship as well, so I definitely know how it can either bond or break you as a couple.

We met up in the River Market at the City Market parking lot and walked around the area finding alleys and eventually settled down at the river’s edge where the ice that has been broken up floated along. It made for the most adorable backdrop and for this sudden and warm weather was amazing to see. With a link to so much in the area, you can’t go wrong taking photos there.

If you ever want to just feel pure joy and love eminating from photos, please come back to this session. I know a lot of people claim to be able to “feel the love” in photos, but if you haven’t ever felt this.. I think now is your time.

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!!!
