Here's a little about me- let me preface that my love for taking photos roots from my passion for connections, shared moments between people. So naturally, I’m a big time people person. Hugs over handshakes, always! While KC will forever be my home, our little family (myself, my hubs Brandon, our black lab Moose, and our newest addition, baby Jack) are relocated to NYC for a couple years for his work!
I pivoted from 5 years of elementary teaching to full blown entrepreneur, and it's the best decision I've ever made for myself. Serving others by transforming their moments into actual art? While traveling the world? There's literally nothing better.
Personally, I wanted my business name and model to be centered around serving others- specifically, those in my community here at home, in the Kansas City area. By capturing your special moments with you and/or your loved ones, it’s our ultimate goal to provide you with images that tell your story, that you’ll be able to treasure for a lifetime.
Documentary, YET GUIDED
Experience over production
Our photography style isn't for everyone, and that's totally okay! But we'll be a great fit if you love those candid, in between moments, adore your people more than anything in the world, and are wanting photos to be fun.+ memorable. We prefer to pose and then prompt, creating an experience for you and yours that is natural and intimate. Trust us- it makes for the most stunning images!
I'll say it once and I'll say it until the end of time- love makes the world go round. And I'm the luckiest for knowing a love that grows, encourages, challenges me. Let me tell you about my soulmate.
Brandon and I met in college @ K-State through mutual friends. I worked at the campus rec center, and he'd so conveniently time his workouts during my shifts (and yes, I'd totally time my rounds to catch a glimpse of him lifting weights- oops). Honestly, we couldn't stay away from each other. We fell fast in love, and the rest is history. That's the short version. But honestly? Our story grows deeper and stronger and fuller with each day.
He's my partner in every way, and I absolutely love that the stars aligned to bring us together.
and we're so, so thrilled at the chance to tell yours through the art of imagery.
Mama to three littles, a heart of gold, lover of micro-weddings and traveling to new places. If she's not behind the camera, she's probably whipping up something yummy in the kitchen (her desserts are second to NONE).
Sammy is such a valuable member of the PKC associate team, and her talent in documenting big and little moments sets her apart. She prioritizes every client and couple she meets, and can't wait to work with you on bringing your vision to life in your images!
Our girl Carlie is a newlywed herself (and made THE most stunning bride)! Her chill and relaxed personality makes for the most stress-free of wedding days, and she's a pro at helping her clients feel fully comfortable and confident at all times.
Carlie has been been doing photography for over 7 years, and has shot for nearly 70 weddings! She's motivated by the thought of her clients cherishing their images in photo books and albums for years to come- a truly timeless experience.
An actual ray of sunshine, everywhere she goes- Grace is full of the most contagious joy and love for what she does! On top of her wedding photography experience, she also has background in the sales/marketing side of the wedding industry!
Grace has a huge passion for capturing all things couples and weddings, and has been focused in photography since 2014. She makes her couples feel SO at home, and thinks of every little detail to make your experience top notch (best tunes to play during your session, and even brings hand warmers for you on those chilly winter days)!
We call her MK around here. She's grown her photography business over the last 7 years, and is so great at keeping sessions fun and candid, while also creating images that you can actually feel when you look back at them!
Mary Kate is also the proud new owner of the CUTEST little pup named Hank (peep him in the photo). She brings a fun and energetic flair to everything she does, and is such a talented asset to the PKC team.
It is physically impossible to spend time with this gal and NOT have the time of your life! She's the most upbeat, encouraging and kind-hearted human, and when you pair all of that with her talent and creativity behind the camera, it's next level.
Cassie's goal in leading each of her sessions is to make her clients feel at home, comfortable and confident, and we can confirm this is an absolute strength of hers. We just love having her on the PKC team!
An absolute treasure- to know her is to love her! What makes Iman so unique in her shooting style is both her calming spirit and attention to detail- her photos have so much feeling in them, and we're simply obsessed.
