Kansas City Band and Musician Photography

When I rebranded my photography business in 2012, I wanted to convey a focus on the other artistic love of my life, music. I wanted to begin working with more bands and musicians, both on stage and in the creation of promotional photos. I’ve loved having the chance to shoot some incredible shows this year (with a few more on the horizon that I’m super stoked about), and to create promo images for a wide variety of artists, duos, and groups. This avenue of my business allows me the opportunity to merge my two artistic passions, which is a dream. Shooting promo photos allows me the chance to envision and create a concept based on a band’s sound, and shooting live shows gives me the challenge of working in an ever-changing lighting environment while allowing me to enjoy a show from in front of the front row (there’s a bit of fangirl joy in that), for the first few songs. And it has widened my musical tastes as well. Almost every time I shoot a live show, I’m introduced to new bands or individuals that I didn’t know before. Every time I get to work with a new group for promo photos, I need to listen to their work to know what their style and sound is like, so I can do my best to ensure that my images match their style. I’ve fallen in love with lots of new albums and genres in the process. I’m thankful for that.

Here are a few highlights of some of my favorite shows and sessions so far this year:

Andria and Travis are Married

The day that you promise your love and commit your life to your best friend is, of course, a beautiful and unforgettable day. It’s a day that you may have been dreaming of for years — and planning for nearly as long. Every detail falls into place perfectly. And the very first moment of your new life together is celebrated among hundreds of your closest friends and family members. How amazing is that?!

“Amazing” is certainly a word I would use to describe Andria and Travis’ wedding day. And “chilly” would come to mind as well, but if you know me, that’s synonymous with “perfect weather.”

Perfect day. Priceless moments. Stunningly gorgeous bride. Wonderful couple. What an honor it was for me to be able to capture such an incredible, emotional, and enjoyable day!
