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!                           ...

Lee’s Summit, Missouri Wedding Photography | The Stanley Event Space

I live by the saying “better late than never”. Same goes with today’s Teaser Tuesday post seeing as it is a Wednesday and all. But alas here are a few of my favorite images from Ashley and Ben’s wedding in Lee’s Summit at The Stanley event space. This wedding had it all. Story, emotion, a killer party and most of all light! They happened to get married the day before Valentines day on the coldest day of the year. I was super impressed with how Ashley and Ben were such troopers braving the bitter cold for a killer portrait. I love when couples have an idea for portraits that have meaning. Such was the case for this wedding. Ashley told me at one point how Ben’s job is in the neon lighting arena and how he had worked on a neon heart sculpture in downtown Lee’s Summit. I immediately knew what we had to do that night of the wedding. This idea has double meaning. Ben had worked on that sign and it was Valentines day. Bingo. Ashley and Ben thank you for being such great clients and trusting me to make it happen! The images: Ben upon seeing his bride for the first time. The band had these awesome light boxes that lit up when you stand on them. I waited through hours of dancing till some guests had enough of courage to dance on them. Loved those boxes.  Eventually Ashley got up on the boxes lighting up her...
