CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR
I serve as a wedding photographer for the Kansas City metro + the state of Colorado and I'd love to tell your love story. My goal is to connect family, friends, strangers and generations by creating captivating imagery that celebrates and preserves this special season of life.
For your family and friends who will be at your wedding: to help commemorate such an important day and include them in the behind-the-scenes story. And for those who aren’t able to make it: to share the narrative with them so they feel as though they were there! Even for strangers, to enjoy the beauty of your story and perhaps be inspired by pieces of it. For generations, so you can share the memory of this day with your children and grandchildren someday for generations to come.
Through this storytelling, I do my very best to create images that are captivating and unique, truly capturing your personalities and hearts for each other during this milestone day and season in your life.

"From start to finish I had an absolute blast working with Kira! She has a fantastic attitude and was incredibly easy to talk to and work with. She was with us nearly all day and fully captured the beauty of the venue and the atmosphere of the whole day. Kira not only took great photos but within 10 days of both the engagement session and the wedding she had our galleries completed and sent to us! I'd highly recommend her to anyone seeking a photographer. She rocked!" -Jordan
"Kira is wonderful. Not only were my husband and I extremely pleased with her and her work, but my family and friends loved her personality and work as well. She gives great feedback during photo sessions and is great with communicating via texting or calls or emails. Kira has a keen eye for different shots and lighting, she is great both indoors and outdoors! I could not have asked for a better photographer to capture our special wedding day." -Holly
"Quick, professional, and fun photographer who captured some amazing moments from my wedding. My wife and I were amazed at how quickly we got our photos back. Also, our wedding officiant mentioned to us how Kira was the most un-intrusive wedding photographer she’s ever seen. Kira was able to capture wonderful moments, without blocking any of them. That takes talent!" - Brent
Every wedding is different and every couple is unique, which is part of why I love what I do so much! Images are a crucial way to share your love story with family, friends, and strangers, so they may be inspired and encouraged by you being authentically YOU. Wedding images are also an important part of your legacy as they’ll be some of the most shared and cherished photos for generations to come.
✔ Photography should be fun
✔ A wedding photographer’s role is to serve - focusing on making creative, meaningful images for each unique couple
✔ In helping everyone feel comfortable in the process
✔ In chasing dreams and encouraging other dream chasers
✔ In supporting the beautiful commitment of marriage
✔ The most important photographs are the ones that withstand the test of time, transporting you back to the very moment it was taken whenever you see it - how the cake tasted, how giddy you felt, how your dad’s speech took way longer than you expected, but it was still your favorite part of the reception
it's all about you.
They are joyful, intentional in their relationship to create a meaningful marriage, and always try to put each other first.

Isn't it nice
“Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale.”

The entire wedding party complimented her professionalism and their comfortability taking direction from her. There was not an awkward moment all day long and the pictures turned out INCREDIBLE! Her unique styling ideas and lighting expertise made for some of the most wonderful photos I've ever seen! We also had all of our pictures beautifully edited and accessible one week after our wedding! ONE WEEK! Like I said, this girl is the best!

Kira is AMAZing! We were absolutely blown away by her work! My husband and I went to college with Kira and she has always been the most kind, approachable, lovely lady she is today.
i'm very glad we decided to choose kira for our wedding photos. every step of the process with her was positive!
For both our engagement photos and our wedding, she was very encouraging and flexible, and came prepared with lots of her own ideas and direction for us. The photos all turned out great! Will use again!

Not only is Kira the sweetest person that I've ever met, but she is TALENTED... like REALLY, REALLY talented you guys!
Where do I even begin?! She was so easy to work with and made being in front of a camera feel comfortable. We were blessed to have her take our engagement pictures and our wedding photos. Not only did she take amazing pictures, but she had them edited and delivered to us within a week. Mind you, she provided us with close to 1,000 pictures of our wedding. Highly, highly recommend her!

Beautiful photos, quick turnaround times, and excellent customer interaction is what you can expect from Kira Whitney Photography.
My husband and I had been friends with Kira prior to us hiring her to shoot our engagement and wedding photos. I knew she was good, but after working with her I have a whole new level of respect for Kira as a professional photographer.
Between the engagement session and the wedding, we received about 1,000 photos from Kira, treated beautifully and delivered in (what felt like) record time. Kira was kind and fun to work with. My husband, who is not a fan of taking photos, even let loose and enjoyed himself! I love the colors, emotions, and memories Kira captured for us. Thank you, Kira!

Let's Be Friends
Every couple is unique and deserves the right wedding photographer for them. I like to make sure we click well together and that my style for weddings lines up with your vision for yours! So take some time to poke around my site and follow me on Instagram to get a feel for who I am. Once you reach out, I’ll set up a brief Discovery Call to talk through your dreams for the big day and see if I might be a good fit for what you’re looking for in a photographer!
Save the date
Hurray, we’re a great fit! Let’s secure your wedding date on my calendar so we can get started planning! Once you confirm the details, I’ll send you a custom online proposal where you can review, sign your contract, and pay your deposit to make it official! Congrats on being the next Kira Whitney couple - let’s get started!
The Engagement Session
Now it’s time to choose a date and a location for your engagement session! This is one of my favorite times for us to get to know each other. No need to be nervous, I promise to guide you through the session and make you feel comfortable - it will be fun! I’ll send you some location ideas to help inspire you and determine one that will reflect your personalities, interests, and relationship, but I’m always up for an adventure or trying someplace new if you already have an idea of what you want! You’ll receive your Engagement Style Guide in the mail shortly after booking to help you plan what to wear and give you tips for looking and feeling your best for this experience. Within one week of the session, you’ll be featured on the Kira Whitney Photography blog and will receive your online gallery for digital image download and sharing. You can order high quality prints from this gallery as well (great to be able to display at bridal showers and at the wedding!).
Wedding Day Planning
2-3 months before your wedding day, I’ll reach out with a planning questionnaire to make sure we’re completely on the same page for the big day! I love creating custom timelines for my couples at this point (or earlier if you're a planner and want to get it done) to make sure we plan enough time for photography during each important part of the wedding experience. I’m happy to work with your wedding planner on this if you are using one as well.
the wedding day!
The big day has finally come! Now it’s time to put all of that hard work during the planning process to rest and enjoy the moments you’ve been anticipating for so long. Let yourself celebrate and relax so you can truly savor these hours that will fly by so quickly. Let me and the other vendors + family and friends that you’ve trusted take care of the details and make everything happen so you can focus on what matters: the start of the beautiful journey of your marriage!
Gallery + Heirloom Albums
Very soon after the wedding, your images will be featured on the Kira Whitney Photography blog and then a few short weeks after that, you’ll receive your gallery with all the high quality wedding images available for digital download, print orders, and sharing with friends and family.
If you’d like a wedding album, you can choose the images you’d like to include by using a little star in the gallery to “favorite” them. I’ll then create an initial draft of the design and you can make tweaks before approving and selecting your cover options. And Voila! Your Heirloom Album will be delivered to you to increase the value of your coffee table for years to come. You can even order “parent albums” which are smaller versions of the same one as thank you gifts to your parents for all the work they put into helping you plan and execute the wedding of your dreams!
Wedding photography starts at $2600 and includes a complimentary engagement session (with a 52 page Engagement Style Guide), at least 8 hours of wedding day coverage, a minimum of 600 edited, digital images, the Wedding Experience Guide to help you plan for elegant wedding images, and a custom blog post to help share your story.
