Hi, I'm Bailey!
I am a professional wedding and portrait photographer based in the heart of the Crossroads Arts District in Kansas City, Missouri.
My love for photography budded in my high school photography classes when I purchased my first SLR camera. From that very first click of the shutter, I was smitten. Luckily my passion didn’t die with that beautiful after when it fell off of a pyramid in Honduras. The film, at least, was salvaged!
Since that rocky start, I have spent the better part of my life experiencing the world through the lens of my cameras. In 2014, I turned my attention towards professionally photographing a more rewarding subject: people! After my first portrait session, I was exhausted but completely exhilarated by how much fun I’d had with my clients. It was on that day that I realized the greatest thing about being a photographer: getting to capture your clients’ raw and beautiful emotions for them to enjoy for years to come.
Of all the types of photography I enjoy, I especially love photographing weddings! My couples’ stories and beautiful wedding days inspire me and, more importantly, they inspire my photography! I love seeking out the subtle details and joyful personalities that make my couples’ wedding days unique to them, and then bringing those to life on the camera.
I have a BA in Spanish and Anthropology, a Minor in Fine Arts, and an MBA in Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Only recently have I built my business to the point where it has become my full-time job! Before that, I worked in non-profit fundraising and marketing. I share this with you not to go on and on about my resume, but to give you a glimpse at the professionalism and discipline that I carry with me from the corporate world. While much of my life is different owning my own business, my commitment to hard work and integrity remain.
I can’t wait to see where my business takes me and who I get to meet next!
