Welcome to Your Wedding Photography Experience

Imagine a wedding planning journey where you don’t have to worry. No need to worry about finding outfit inspiration for the engagement session. No need to drive around searching for the perfect photography locations. No need to worry about writing your wedding day timeline and getting things “good enough”. Imagine a life where all of that is taken care of, for you!

Are you ready to experience luxury?

Hiring a wedding photographer isn’t just signing a contract, it’s trusting someone with your forever memories

ARE YOU LOOKING FOR SOMEONE TO TRUST?

Are you worried about Uncle Joe or your soon-to-be in-law controlling the day? We’ve seen this before. This is why we have conversations with our couples ahead of time to come up with a game plan to keep you feeling all of the love and none of the stress.

Are you worried about not looking your best in your wedding gallery? We’ve got this covered too! We work one-on-one with you to get a sense of how you want to feel and look in your pictures. Don’t worry, we ask all the right questions!

Are you frustrated with vendors' lack of communication and transparency? We get it! Searching for the right vendors can be a headache! This is why we aim to anticipate your questions. It’s important to us to go above and beyond with our communication to provide you with everything you need, before you even ask for it!

Are you wishing you could have a million dollar wedding without spending a million dollars? It’s all about the curation! We’re not just photographers, we’re story tellers. We’re directors. Part of our job is to tell the story of your day how you want it to be told. This is why we have some tricks up our sleeve to elevate a few things.

"Words truly cannot fully articulate the respect and admiration I have"

"Words truly cannot fully articulate the respect and admiration I have for Cassidy and her work. From day one, she used her expertise to help make my dream wedding photos become a reality. She took time to get to know us, understand how we wanted our wedding day to be captured, and even helped with details of wedding planning such as the timeline. She made us feel incredibly valued and comfortable so that she could capture our true selves. I was apprehensive about not having a videographer, but this quickly went away as soon as I saw Cassidy’s work. She didn’t just capture pictures, she captured moments that I can still feel when I look at the photos today. Looking through my wedding album feels like watching the entire day all over again because of the level of detail and intentionality Cass put into the photos. I go to buy more frames weekly because as I look at our gallery it’s difficult to choose just a few of my favorites. Cassidy and her work are magical and it was an immense blessing to have her as a wedding vendor."

- LAUREN AND JACK

WANT IN ON A SECRET?

I’ve been in your shoes before, I know how it feels!

You might be thinking, “Cassidy, you’re not married!” And although this is true, I do have a beautiful daughter who might just be my favorite person in this world. As a photographer, documenting once-in-a-lifetime memories is especially important to me. This is how I know the feeling of searching for someone to trust with your precious photos. I’ve been in your shoes. I know what it’s like to want to feel beautiful in photos. I know what it’s like to try and plan every aspect of a photoshoot.

BUT WHAT IF I TOLD YOU THAT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY? ONE BIG SCARY, STRESSFUL, TRUST EXERCISE.

introducing

YOUR LUXURY PHOTOGRAPHY EXPERIENCE

An experience that has been carefully curated, with every touch point thoroughly thought through to ensure you are given everything you need. An experience that has been made because we believe that the foundation of a beautiful wedding gallery is a stress-free, happy couple on their wedding day.

LET'S BREAK IT DOWN

HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

a bride's lips

EXPECTATION ONE

The Engagement Session

Say goodbye to the phrase, “I have no idea what I’m going to wear!” We provide our clients with an engagement session prep guide that goes over the in’s and out’s of styling the perfect outfit. Along with that, you’ll receive a list of Kansas City photography locations. But wait, there’s more! We want this session to reflect your story. You’ll get a questionnaire designed to give us the information we need to create a vision board with outfit ideas, location ideas, and the overall vision and vibe for your session.

EXPECTATION TWO

The Wedding Guide

If a decade of photography knowledge could be put into a guide, it would be this one! Our expertise in creating a photo-friendly wedding, written down in one place. This 72 page guide (yes, you read that right, 72 pages) goes over everything from collecting beautiful touches to add into your flat lay photos, to putting the dress on, to exiting at the end of the night.

EXPECTATION THREE

The Resource Library

As much as we’d love to shove everything into one guide, we decided 72 pages was enough. This is why our clients gain access to our exclusive client resource library. A place to house all of the tools and guides you’ll need along our journey together. (Plus a few extras) We designed this library with the idea of you in mind and always anticipating your needs and questions.

EXPECTATION FOUR

The Reveal

Waiting for pictures is THE WORST! I’ve been there, I’ve felt it. But what if… you didn’t have to wait? Imagine, only 48 hours after your wedding day, you get a gallery of highlight sneak peeks. Ahhh, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? Spoiler alert: YOU DO! No more posting iPhone pictures on Instagram. No more waiting 2 months to get your first glimpse of your forever photos.

SIDE EFFECTS OF HIRING CDP FOR YOUR WEDDING ARE AS FOLLOWS:

01

Your friends and family might just be jealous of how amazing your wedding pictures are

02

You’ll never stop hearing, “Who took your wedding photos? They are FANTASTIC!”

03

Your VIP’s (mom, dad, even Uncle Joe) are going to feel special and taken care of too

04

You’ll sleep better at night knowing you’ve hired the professionals, not the amateur

05

You’ll walk into wedding day prepared and ready to relax and enjoy the day

Casey

 I’ve never heard, “I regret investing in my wedding photographer.” But I have heard, “I wish I would’ve invested in a pro.”

So let's get this party started!

"Cassidy is the obvious choice when picking a photographer"

"Cassidy is the obvious choice when picking a photographer for any reason here in Kansas City. She paid so much attention to the details that mattered most to my husband and I. It felt like we were having a friend photograph the day because that is how much she cared to make everything perfect for us. I loved that she offers to do the wedding detail shots ahead of the big day. This way she could spend more time capturing us on the actual day. We are so happy to have these photos to cherish for the rest of our lives! I am looking forward to having her capture our future life milestones!"

- ABBEY AND CHRISTIAN

hey there!

I’m Cassidy, your new camera-in-hand friend.

I pour my heart and soul into every wedding I take. This is why I take a limited number of weddings each year. I dedicate my time to giving my clients my best, not my half to the masses.

I used to serve the masses...

When I first got into the wedding industry, I was hungry to take any and every wedding. I found myself tired and run-down trying to give my clients the experience I knew they deserved. Instead of giving my clients less and continuing to take on more weddings, I decided that I wanted to give my clients with my all. This is why I only take a select number of weddings per year.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE KATE MIDDLETON TO HAVE A ROYAL WEDDING, YOU CAN HAVE THAT TREATMENT TOO!

but it wasn't always this way...

This experience is one of a kind because…

IT'S LIKE HAVING A BEST FRIEND THAT WANTS TO SEE YOU SUCCEED

If you fail, we fail. We’re your biggest hype women, your biggest cheerleader, and your biggest secret tool to getting the photos you’ve been dreaming of.

WE KNOW THE TRUST IT TAKES TO PICK AND WORK WITH A PHOTOGRAPHER

We understand the weight and gravity of working in the wedding industry. I often get asked, “Is it stressful to work weddings?” And my answer is: I wouldn’t say it’s stressful, but I would say that it is deeply humbling knowing that my clients have chosen me to document one of the biggest moments of their life, and that’s a feeling I’ll cherish forever.

OUR RESOURCE LIBRARY AND EVERY TOUCH POINT IS DESIGNED WITH YOU IN MIND

Throughout my career, I’ve paid close attention to the types of questions my couples ask me. What is it that they really need? What type of things do they really value? How can I help them throughout this journey? What is the next thing they’re going to want from me? Can I give it to them before they ask for it?
