Welcome to the Basic Invite blog! My name is Kira and I run Kira Whitney Photography out of Kansas City, Missouri, focusing on wedding photography and creative portraiture! I am a happy-go-lucky wife, dog mom, and lover of the great outdoors and photography is obviously my passion. My mission is to connect family, friends, strangers and generations by creating captivating imagery that celebrates and preserves the special seasons of life. I begin to do this by aiming to tell my clients' stories, showing what it felt like, rather than just what it looked like. Particularly with weddings I like to edit and organize in a way that make you feel like you could have almost been there if you weren't!
This wedding was my most recent and one of my favorites so far! It was held at the Tapestry House in Laporte, Colorado (I'm originally from the Colorado Springs area) and it was an incredible venue. Despite the 92 degree weather, everything went so smoothly and the wedding party, families and guests all had a blast. Megan and Kevin had been dating since before I took their high school senior photos five years ago so it was extra special to have the opportunity to capture their big day!
The ceremony was worship focused, Kevin cried, Megan cried, the pastor cried... all from joy of course. It was hard to keep it together myself!
The amount of laughter and happiness during this whole day was a treat to be a part of! I love a couple who can make fun of themselves, make fun of each other, and openly reminisce on hilarious stories from all the years they have been together :)
I aim to capture all the emotions that are so prevalent in each wedding, the love between families in a family session, the personality of a student in a senior session and the goofiness of kiddos as they transition through different phases of life. Congratulations Megan and Kevin, what a joyous day it was! See the full session here.
