Best Kansas City Wedding photos 2016 | Celebrating love in 2016

Happy 2017 from Wirken Photography! We hope your year is starting out wonderful. Ours has been a bit crazy hence this best of Kansas City wedding photos of 2016 post coming so late. But as they say better late than never. Tyler had a blast last year working with such wonderful clients. We know all photographers say they love their clients but it truly is what makes the difference for us at Wirken Photography. The trust that is given to us from our clients is paramount to making us one of the luckiest wedding photographers in Kansas City. There is simply no way Tyler could do what he does without that trust. Not only do our clients trust him to be present during sometimes intimate moments but more importantly they trust the decisions he is making on a wedding day allowing him to make the best photos possible. That relationship is crucial and we cannot thank our wonderful couples enough for allowing us to stretch our creativity and really take some risks that more often than not turn into huge rewards. With that we have painstakingly gone through all of our weddings from 2016 and are thrilled to present the rewards of all of that trust. 2016that started on Valentines day and ended on New Years Eve and included cities like Kansas City, Charlotte, Topeka, Edgerton, Kansas, Lees Summit, Brooklyn, New York, and Columbia, Missouri. Thank you from us at Wirken and here’s to 2017!                           ...

Charlotte, North Carolina wedding photography of Christina and Eric

It was the summer of 2015 and I was eating lunch when the studio phone rang. It was Christina asking about wedding photography for her wedding in Charlotte, North Carolina. Well to be truthful she was originally asking about wedding photography in Charleston, South Carolina but over the following months they decided to get married in their hometown of Charlotte. It was an interesting phone conversation with Christina. Turns out she is a wedding photographer and had actually found me from my class I did on wedding photojournalism on Creative Live. So needless to say she already had a head start on understanding how I approach being a wedding photographer in Kansas City. It is always a pleasure to work with couples who truly get what I do. I am blessed to be able to say all of my clients are totally on board with my style of wedding photography in a purely documentary way but when the client is a photographer they seem to understand things a bit deeper and really allow me to swing for the fences. Christina and Eric were wonderful to work with and they provided a plethora of moments throughout the day. This was my first time being a wedding photographer in Charlotte, North Carolina but it did not disappoint. Being a destination wedding photographer can be a challenge at times. Especially when you are tasked with documenting an event by yourself. You have to think in a different way. You have to anticipate your moves and what is going to happen even more than when you are photographing a wedding with a second...

Charlotte, North Carolina wedding photography of Christina and Eric | Teaser Tuesday

Life has been a bit crazy lately hence my 2 week delay on Teaser Tuesday of Christina and Eric’s wedding in Charlotte, North Carolina. But as they say better late than never! I first chatted with Cristina last summer about her wedding. She is a wedding photographer herself and had seen a class I taught on Creative Live a couple of years ago. She was totally on board with how I shoot and wanted me to fly out and photograph her wedding in Charlotte, North Carolina. I photographed this wedding on my own so I had a few more challenges than normal but I am really happy with the moments I was able to capture for the couple and their families. It was the perfect day for a wedding in North Carolina and these two were full of moments the entire time making my job a joy. Here are a few of my favorite images from the day. Enjoy! This is perhaps the one image I am most proud of. Christina as she is walking down the stairwell in her house reflected in her grandmothers wedding photo. Family tradition and heritage is a huge part of her life so I wanted to do what I could to capture that. I worked on this photo for nearly 30 minutes to make it come together. In the end the work and waiting was worth it. Eric hugs his wife directly after their ceremony in the back hallway of the church.     Hard to pass up kids in suits rolling around in the grass. Wonderful quiet moment at the end of the...
