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!                           ...

Grand Street Kansas City Wedding Photography | Teaser Tuesday of Drew and Libby

This wedding has seemed like a long time coming. I first met Drew and Libby when I was asked by Drew to photograph his proposal to Libby at the Plaza in Kansas City last December. I love being a Kansas City proposal photographer and was excited to document Drew and Libby’s. What I did not expect was how great both of their families would be that night. It was to be an insight as to how awesome this wedding was to be. Just like that December night on the Plaza, their families did not disappoint on Saturday either. The day was filled with such love, tears, and one of the best parties I have seen in a while. The Grand Street Grand Room was rocking.  Congrats Drew and Libby! Here a few of my favorites from the day. Libby rode with her parents to the ceremony all the while laughing about how big her dress was and how they were drowning in Thule. Drew listens to a toast by his brother.  The dance floor was packed all night long.  The band loaned out some of their instruments. Not sure they intended this type of use.  One of my favorite end of the night moments to date. I love how they just sat on the floor of their hotel room at the end of the night and leaned on each...

Kansas City wedding proposal photography

Tis the season for folks getting engaged in Kansas City and I had the pleasure of witnessing one the day after Christmas. I absolutely love being a Kansas City proposal photographer. These shoots are rare but I love doing them. I love the sneakiness of it all and the rush that comes with being there but yet having to be hidden. Being a proposal photographer in Kansas City requires a balance between being a hunter and a photojournalist. I often feel as nervous as the soon to be groom I am sure. I was contacted by Libby’s family about the plan for Drew to propose on the Plaza the day after Christmas and they asked if I could be there to document it all. The original plan was for the wedding proposal to be on the Plaza with the Plaza lights. However, mother nature had another plan so it was to take place in the bar of the Intercontinental hotel instead. All worked out perfectly and the rain even added an unexpected element to the shoot that I liked making for a really interesting portrait of the couple. The night concluded with a bus ride to Grand Street cafe where the entire family had dinner to celebrate the couple. What a great shoot. Here are a few of my favorites from the night. Congrats Libby and Drew!...
