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!

Uptown Theater Wedding – Hey Lewises!

Shelby and Emma had an Uptown Theater Wedding and I could expect nothing less. It was vibrant, beautiful, and full of love.

These wonderful women and I met under unfortunate circumstances. I don’t want to dwell on it, but they’re one of the big driving forces of my LGBTQ+ vendor list. They’re also why I’m working on a bigger project that I’ll be announcing in 2020.

These two have the biggest hearts and the most theatrical and wonderful backgrounds. All of their friends were so vibrant and loving. They loved to sing, dance and play instruments. It only made sense that these two were married at the Uptown Theater.

There was a sweets table that was a tradition in their family. There were more cookies and cakes than I could count. Shelby and Emma chose to walk down the aisle separately and then walk up to the stage together. They are the best example of “your day, your way.”

While wedding planning, the three of us (plus my husband) became so close. Their love story was so similar to ours) OkCupid for the win! They have fought for their relationship and were able to make their day exactly what they wanted. It was such an inspiration and all I ever want is a couple who is so caught up in each other that they forget we’re taking photos. That is Shelby and Emma.

They can pose themselves, they can show their hearts, and it’s impossible to take a bad photo.

The most sincere thank you goes out to you two for trusting me, being so accommodating, and throwing the wedding of a lifetime. (Also for having an actor groomsman who will make Rent on stage possible for me.)

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.

"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."
