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!                           ...
Kansas City Same Sex wedding photography | Teaser Tuesday of Clint and Evan’s wedding at Mildale Farms

Kansas City Same Sex wedding photography | Teaser Tuesday of Clint and Evan’s wedding at Mildale Farms

A day late but hey it’s busy season. Teaser Tuesday on a Wednesday today. I had the pleasure of documenting Clint and Evan’s wedding this past weekend at Mildale Farms. This was to by my second time as a same sex wedding photographer in Kansas City, Missouri but my first time documenting two men getting married. I must say both times I have been asked to document a same sex wedding I have felt different. These events are just different. I mean if you boil it down it is all the same. Two people in love surrounded by people supporting their union acting as witnesses to their love. I think it boils down to Clint and Evan’s story. It was a story of true love and unwavering support from friends and family that went deeper than normal. It seems with both same sex weddings in Kansas City that I have been the photographer for there seemed more on the line. Clint and Evan’s Mildale Farms wedding was a celebration of overcoming adversity and finding the person that makes it all make sense. Enjoy a few of my favorite images from the day. Clint helps Evan with his bow tie prior to their ceremony at Mildale Farms. Perhaps my favorite image from the day. Evan and Clint walked into the ceremony seperately down a long path. I love how all of this lined up on a picture perfect day.  Clint reacting to Evan’s amazing vows he wrote. It was a very emotional day. This image sums it all up for me showing the love not only between Clint and Evan...
Tori + Danny | A Wedding Short Film

Tori + Danny | A Wedding Short Film

One of the benefits (and arguably, drawbacks) of the modern age is that we live our lives traveling. We travel across oceans and continents in a blink of an eye compared to our ancestors. We see amazing things, do amazing things and go amazing places. But only a select few of us can say that the actual flights we take change our lives in a permanent way. Tori and Danny can. They are evidence that the time we often take for granted, like a routine flight home, can bring you closer to your destiny. Please take a moment to witness their story. The music for this film was recorded live during the ceremony. Charlie, Tori’s brother not only does a wonderful job at the wedding, but he does a wonderful job all the time. Check him out at his website: The Charlie Rogers Band. I want to give a special thanks to Holly Davidson from Simple Elegance for organizing the wonderful day. Also a thank you to Briana and Phil of Shades of Gray photography for being so kind and easy to work...
