Kelly and Dan are one of the most genuine and kind people that I got a chance to know. Kelly and Dan live in Virginia, and last Christmas they made a trip back to Kansas City to spend time with their families. And of course, there is no better place to start the photo shoot… right at Kelly’s home where she grew up. I’m looking forward to documenting their wedding in April.
I thought it appropriate to make my first wedding blog post of 2011 to be of my last wedding of 2010 and the first of 2011 that I shot.

The ceremony took place at Our Lady of Sorrows Church and the ballroom of the Intercontinental Hotel never looked better. I only wish she had more siblings so we could do it all over again! These people really know how to throw a party and make everyone around them feel right at home. Thank you so much for letting us document your day and … Read the rest
These are my friends Seth and Holly and their beautiful, sweet 1 year old Drew. Just a few photos around their house one wintery weekday.
So if you have seen our facebook page you might be a bit confused. We are expecting………some new blood……..in the studio……..not in our home!
I would like to proudly introduce you all to some new members of the Wirken family. In efforts to always offer the best to our clients we have decided to grow our team with another photographer as well as a brand new division to Wirken Photography — Wirken Films.
Change is good in my opinion. Change forces you to think differently and make what is already good even better. With the new additions to our team came the need for a new website overhaul as well. So be sure to go to www.wirkenphoto.com and see the changes as well as learn more about our new members of the team and their work.
I will start with David Tsai. David is a good friend of ours here in town and has been shooting documentary weddings for years now in Kansas City. We have been chatting about having him join our team as he would be a perfect fit for a long time now. Everything lined up finally and we decided to make it happen. He is such an amazing person and talent. We are honored to have him on board. It will allow us to service so many more clients now that we have the three of us. David is a perfect fit here as the quiet observer and has a sense of humor that blows my mind. I love seeing how he sees the world. So with that I give you David. Everyone say hi!
Next up I want to introduce … Read the rest
