Your personal photojournalists. Telling your story.

We are Kansas City based wedding and family photographers passionate about telling the story of life in a photojournalistic way. For us, it is not enough to just capture the moments that are predictable at every wedding or family shoot. We need to capture the unrehearsed, pure moments that happen when family and friends come together to celebrate.

The Wirken Photography team uses their experience and skills in photojournalism,  and fine art photography to act as a witness to real life unfolding in front of our cameras. We have been a pillar of the Kansas City wedding photography community since our founding over 15 years ago, and our work has placed us in the list of top wedding photographers in the nation. Tyler Wirken, in 2013, was named one of the top 10 wedding photographers in the world by American Photo Magazine.

We love being wedding photographers in Kansas City, Missouri and Chicago, Illinois as well as family photographers and we have photographed nearly every Kansas City wedding venue, from grand ballrooms to backyards. We also enjoy destination weddings and will travel anywhere your heart desires. We have had the pleasure of photographing weddings in Belize, Traverse City, Chicago, St. Louis, Florida Keys, Colorado Springs, San Francisco, Iowa, Bermuda, Puerto Vallarta Mexico, Cancun Mexico, and Kentucky.
