Kansas City Wedding Photographer Reviews from Brides: Love Notes

“To take a quote from a friend who saw our wedding photos “I’ve never seen wedding photos that were that stunning in my life.” I think that about sums it up! I absolutely love our wedding photos, especially the bridal party shots and romantic ones of my husband and I. She has a way with integrating color that is just beautiful (and her black and white shots are amazing as well!). Sharaya is also very professional and incredibly fun to be around. She was great at setting up the shot and helping us understand how to pose without feeling awkward or forced. Sharaya has always been very responsive to our emails and open to our ideas for what we like or don’t like in photos. We ended up with an album that reflects our personalities and is just GORGEOUS! Highly recommend.”

 

Sharaya & my sister were friends in high school so I got to spend a lot of time with her. In that period of time I learned that Sharaya was a health nut, that loved to sing, dress up & take pictures. As she went on to college, Sharaya began publishing more of her pictures. By the time she had graduated college, I was honestly under the impression she was born to be a photographer. She not only is a great photographer, she is an amazing person. She cares so much about others; which leads to her caring about how perfect brides like their weddings.

Nearly 7 years after high school, I contacted Sharaya asking her to be our wedding/engagement photographer. She made it feel as though we had talked every day for those 7 years. Sharaya was prompt, accurate & more than willing to make everything I desired for my engagement pictures/wedding possible. She captured every single moment that I feel most photographers these days forget about because they are in such a rush.

When we got our engagement pictures back, we literally printed off one of each, it was that impossible to decide. Here we are, 10 months later & cannot decide which wedding pictures we would like to purchase. They are more than amazing!! Everyone that I’ve shown, has said our pictures look as though we should be in a magazine.

We are in LOVE with our pictures. Which are the greatest memory from your wedding you will have!! Sharaya took tons of time editing them & making them as perfect as she could for us; which not only says a lot about her photography, but a lot about her as a person. She is willing to stay up late, work long ours & nearly every Saturday, just to make a happy bride. There are very few, if not, no photographers that will do that for their clients.

Our pictures are more than perfect, more than we ever could’ve imagined & absolutely breath-taking. Every new bride to be should definitely hire Sharaya as their photographer, regardless of the distance. You will NOT be disappointed

Sharaya was absolutely the perfect fit for our wedding! From the beginning when she met my mom and I at Starbucks and we talked about my wedding vision, I fell in love with her. During this time she was personable, energetic, and clearly got my vision. After booking her services, I was nothing but overwhelmingly impressed with her constant professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine care and concern for me as a bride. She was always accessible to answer any questions I had, and over this time I felt like we really formed a friendship.

The day of the wedding she was there for every major moment, capturing our emotions through the lens. Our wedding party, family, and friends fell in love with her, and she made the day run smoothly for my husband and I. After looking at our images, I could not be happier with the outcome. As stated earlier, she captured the emotion of the day in our photos, and looking through them takes me right back to that special day. Sharaya is a one of a kind and unlike any photographer I have worked with before. It was an absolute pleasure to not only get to meet her, but have her capture the biggest day of our lives! FIVE STARS!!!!!!

“Sharaya is amazing!! I absolutely love my wedding photos. She made me look like a Barbie doll and captured my wedding perfectly, I hate photos of myself, but throughout the process she was super professional and made us feel comfortable! I would book her again and again!”

“I met Sharaya when she was shooting my sister-in-laws wedding. After seeing how professional she was and took a look at her fantastic work I knew that I wanted her for my wedding photographer. I was a bit nervous when it was time to shoot our engagement session but Sharaya did an awesome job of making me feel relaxed and comfortable. After our session my Fiance’ Dan and I said to each other, “Well, that wasn’t so bad…it was actually fun!” We just got our engagement photos back and we are beyond impressed, as well as everyone we show them too. We can’t wait to have Sharaya shoot our wedding in September and are so excited!!”

“Beyond whatever you read in these reviews, photos don’t lie. The work that Sharaya does is outstanding and the service she puts into making your session feel special is one of a kind. She makes you feel relaxed and comfortable. She gets to know the couple before diving into the session so she can get a real feel for what kind of photos they might like. Our photos turned out amazing and all our friends and family agreed. She also adds personal touches to each encounter, from a thank you note, to a gift basket, to just a catch up email, she really makes you feel special. I highly recommend her and can not wait for to do our wedding as well!”

 

“Sharaya was absolutely wonderful to work with. She w

a

s there for

anything that we needed. Before making the decision to hire her, she meet with us a couple times and got to know us. She customized our package to accommodate what we were looking for and made sure that we got exactly what we wanted! Many of the wedding party and my family commented on how great she was the day of the wedding as well! We absolutely love our photos! Sharaya will be the photographer we go to for any future needs!”

 

“If you are looking for the BEST photograp

her in Kansas City, look no further!!! Sharaya Mauck is hands down the best value for the price in the whole city – book NOW before she fills up! She happily let us tweak her photographer packages to fit or needs and our budget. We are absolutely thrilled with both our engagement and wedding images, and they look incredible in our home! Sharaya is so sweet, personable, and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera! We are so lucky to not only have beautiful magazine worthy images, but have found a photographer that can grow with us over the years!”

“I am so happy I booked Sharaya for our engagement

and w

edding photos. I love how she got to know my fiancé and I before we took our photos. Sharaya made my fiancé and I feel so comfortable in our engagement session that the pictures turned out perfect and even more beautiful than I could ever imagine. We haven’t gotten married yet, but I look forward to seeing the work Sharaya will do for our wedding. I know our photos will turn out absolutely amazing and I cannot wait to have them to cherish for years to come. Sharaya is very professional and has a vast amount of creativity. I would recommend Sharaya to anyone who is looking for a professional high quality photographer.”

 

“Sharaya was the best choice we made for our big day! She made US feel so comfortable and our pictures are a reflection of our perfect day! She was a true treat to work with and if we could do it all over again we would choose sharaya mauck photography!”

 

 

“We couldn’t be happier with our decision to book Sharaya. She is worth every penny we spent on our engagement and wedding photography. Not only is she very friendly and outgoing but her work speaks for itself. She’s so young and energetic and just truly passionate about weddings, love and photography that you couldn’t find anyone better to capture your wedding day and engagement!! My husband and I are awkward in front of the camera but she managed to make us look our best and natural in our engagement photos and I’m sure our wedding pictures won’t be any different. We haven’t seen any wedding photos yet as we were just married a week and 1/2 ago but I know we will love all of them. Sharaya and her second shooter Jen put up with our wild families personalities, awkward moments and she made sure we had fun while getting the shots we wanted. I will definitely use her for future life events and have recommended her to people we know for their future weddings.”

 

 

 

“Sharya was amazing! She was very willing to work with us to stay within our budget and the services she provided were incredible. She was very professional before, during and after the wedding. We loved all of the pictures she took and are having a hard time picking our favorites. I would highly recommend her!”

 

 

 

“Sharaya was worth EVERY SINGLE PENNY!!! She is so sweet, so professional, and so good at what she does. The worst thing about using Sharaya is having so many good photos I can’t decide which ones to buy!!!”

 

 

 

“Sharaya was great to work with. We could tell that she really enjoys what she does. From our first session to the day of our wedding, she was awesome! She made us feel comfortable throughout the planning process and was always available to answer any questions we had. My husband didn’t live in Kansas City, so often times it was difficult for me to get his input on a lot of stressful venue change that we had. She was so supportive and met with me many times to help me picture different options for our wedding day. Her talent and creatively is obvious throughout our pictures. They are absolutely beautiful!!! She captured everything, from us both getting ready to our send off at the end of the night. Our pictures truly told the story of our day.”

 

 

“Sharaya captured every smile, every tear and the emotion of the day perfectly! We were so blessed to have her as our photographer. We could not be more happy with our photos. The services she provides is absolutely incredible. She has an eye that can bring so much life into a picture. She has given us something that is so precious and that we can look back 50 years from now and still be able to relive the special moments of our wedding day.”

 

 

“I am more than happy that Sharaya got to take my engagement pictures and wedding pictures! Even though the sun was super bright and we were all sweating like crazy, Sharaya somehow still got gorgeous pictures that I love to show to my friends and family. Sharaya is without a doubt professional throughout the whole day, but also provides a winning personality that made us comfortable and less stressed at that time of the day. She never runs out of ideas or poses and I admired that a lot about her. And once again, the pictures she took were gorgeous! I am super excited to have these pictures in my house!”

I just have to say she EXCEEDED my expectations and I can’t even believe the beautiful pictures are of us!! She really is amazing! Her second shooter JEN was fabulous as well.

“If you are looking for the perfect wedding photographer, you’ve found her! Photography was one of the most important decisions to me during our wedding planning process. I met with quite a few photographers, but once I met with Sharaya it was an easy choice for me. She is professional but very fun and really helped us feel at ease in front of the camera. She took time to get to know my husband and I, resulting in photos that were so ‘us’. She met with me quite a bit before the wedding to make sure she knew exactly how the day would go and what we were looking for out of photos. Most importantly, Sharaya’s photos are AMAZING. She is incredibly talented and she captured the real moments and emotion of the day. Thank you, Sharaya!! You’re the best!”

It’s really great to work with someone who loves what they do and it shows in the end product. She is someone who truly cares about her clients and her work. We would highly recommend her to any of our friends and family and feel blessed that we could have her capture this time in our lives.”

 

 

“Sharaya was AMAZING!!! I don’t have anything bad to say about her. She went above and beyond what I expected. Her work is fantastic and even the way she sent us the photos was amazing…made me cry! 9 months later and I’m still looking at the photos is amazement…I find a new favorite every time. We even bought extra hours so her and the 2nd shooter were there with us for 10 hours if I remember right and not one compaint! We had a pretty rowdy crowd, but they were both extremely professional and super sweet! You’d be a fool not to hire this girl….she loves what she does and it shows in her work.”

 

 

“I recently got married in August and was truly grateful to have Sharaya as our photographer. She did such a great job with capturing priceless and memorable moments. She is so creative and has a true gift. 🙂 We could not have asked for better pictures! We are from southwest Kansas and there really isn’t very many places for great photos to be taken. However, Sharaya did an amazing job in making our day look more beautiful than anything I have ever seen! We are so glad that she was a part of our day and that she was able to put up with all of our family and friends we had there! Thank you, Sharaya, for a job well done. You are so very talented!”

 

 

“Sharaya did a wonderful job with our engagement and wedding photos! She is great at helping people to relax and have fun while taking pictures. She never hesitated to meet up with me to talk about details and go over timelines. Throughout the entire experience I always felt confident that she would come through with everything, and she did. 🙂 I couldn’t be happier with our wedding photos!”

 

 

“We are so happy that we chose Sharaya to shoot our engagement and wedding day photos! When we first looked at Sharaya’s website, the first thing that we noticed was how creative and artistic her photos are. The photos she takes are extremely unique, yet very beautiful and timeless. Also, Sharaya is so much fun, and she makes you feel very comfortable–we found ourselves feeling very at ease and laughing a lot during our shoots. Choosing Sharaya as our photographer was definitely one of the best decisions we made for our wedding. We will always cherish the photos she took for one of the most important days of our lives!”

 

 

“Sharaya encapsulates everything a photographer should be–as a bride I wanted someone that could capture love in traditional and modern ways. My husband and I are not hungry for the spotlight, but Sharaya made it so fun and easy we actually looked forward to each photo of our engagement shoot and the wedding! The day comes and goes quickly, but Sharaya’s work captured the most important moment of our lives with breathtaking precision and genuine thoughtfulness. Sharaya is not only incredibly talented and professional, she is a blast to be around and we look forward to working with her again!”

 

 

“Sharaya exceeded all of my wedding photography expectations and dreams. Her service and photos were the most valuable things I purchased for my wedding and I can enjoy my special day over and over again!! She is creative and original. She is easy to work with and very personable. I am continually happy with my decision to hire Sharaya. I can not imagine a better photographer or set of photos.”
