Kat Wooten Studios
Kat, was the first photographer willing to work with me and help bring my visions to life. She's incredibly driven, talented, and kind. Not to mention she's crazy fun to be around! From weddings to boudoir to photo booths, she does it all and does it like a boss!

Sugarbean Paper Co.
Chrissy, is so kind and lively. She has the really great eye for spotting trends that haven't come to fruition just yet. If you're ever just needing to grab a cup of coffee and talk to someone, I'd recommend her! That is if she has the time with her insanely busy schedule, because she stays booked!

Tip Top Tux
Though I am sure most of us are familiar with Tip Top Tux at this point, I still feel that it's important to recognize their contributions and dedication to serving the Midwest with super stylish tuxedos. Special shout out to Ryan at the Zona Rosa location, he also helped style me for my own wedding!

Cordial Craft Cocktail Co.
Please do not confuse Cordial Craft with another bartender service, they are far from it. As one of KC's only, if not the only, cocktail catering company they provide a service that is unmatched. Brandon + Alyssa, are some of the coolest people that I have ever met, their story is amazing and serves as major #goals!
As you can see she Latrice is bold and daring, which is what made me want to reach out to her for this shoot in the first place. I am so excited to work with her!

Petals + Pastries
Chrystal, is one of the most easy-going and kind person that I have ever met. With just one meeting, what seemed like a million ideas just flowed continuously! Her work is so unique and beautiful, and if you get the chance to speak with her, ask her about her fun flavors. You're welcome, in advance.

Jena, She's chill, funny, and just a super easy to be around. This is my second time using dresses from Jena's shop. She has such a great sense of fashion and definitely has her finger on the pulse of what brides are looking for!

Ultrapom Event Rentals
A name and brand that has taken the Kansas City wedding industry by storm, has been super helpful and kind to Worth The Wait Studios. In fact Carolyn, the owner, was one of the first vendors that I met almost a year ago and she's been helpful every step of the way. I'd also like to shout out Lauren, who is their Brand + Marketing Director!

Ann Mann Designs
First, let's just take a moment to appreciate this headpiece. When seeking out new vendors to collaborate with on shoots or weddings, I am always looking for people who are willing to not only go outside the box, but break the box entirely. Christie, the owner and designer, does this consistently in her designs!

Last but certainly not least, Iesha is my beautiful wife of nearly two years now! She has been by my side every step of the way helping set up receptions, helping brainstorm for shoots, and sometimes she even let's me stay up late to draft proposals and contracts. Sometimes. Nevertheless, I love her and I know you all will too!
Side Note: Enjoy this very rare photo of my hat-less head.
Though I am certain that we will capture all of the amazing details this shoot will have to offer, big and small, if there are any shots that you want us to make sure to include as we create our master shot list, now would be a great time. Though I can not promise that every single request will be fulfilled, we will make sure to get at least one suggested shot from each vendor that submits. Thanks
