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!                           ...

Prairie Fire Museum wedding photography | Teaser Tuesday of Sarah and Mark’s Overland Park wedding

This wedding felt like a long time coming as I have had the wonderful opportunity to get these two very well over the past year through meetings as well as getting to watch them as a couple on New Years Eve as part of Hailee and Tiffany’s wedding. So I was super excited when it was their time. Mark and Sarah’s wedding took place in Overland Park, Kansas on Saturday with their wedding ceremony at Church of the Nativity followed by a wedding reception at the Prairie Fire Museum. The day proved to be one of the hottest of the year so far and we battled wind and bright sun but these two were troopers and embraced a fearless attitude that was contagious. I can’t wait to show these two their wedding photography at the Prairie Fire Museum as that building offers such incredible backdrops to work with. They are gonna have to wait for those but till then here a few of my favorites as a teaser. Enjoy! Sometimes when a church limits your access it is good as you come up with new angles. I love how Mark is looking at Sarah during communion at their ceremony. Walter Cronkite, the dog, joined us in the Rolls Royce provided by Pech Limo for the couples get away from the ceremony. I don’t normally include portraits of the bride and groom as part of Teaser Tuesday, even though I do them at each wedding, but I had to include this one as I know Sarah would be anxious to see it. I told her I wanted her on top...

Angela + James | A Wedding Short Film

Angela and James are an amazing couple. They both knew from the start what they were looking for in a person to marry, and held out hope until it happened. That is a dedication that is more and more rare in today’s world, and I feel blessed that I was able to be there to witness their wedding. The morning of their wedding Angela was surprised by a slideshow that James had made and put on Youtube for her to watch. All of the girls watched as James told the story of why he wanted to marry her and how she was perfect for him. James is my kind of...
