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 a very professional photographer who takes unique and contemporary photos. This was my family's second wedding with Sharaya Mauck behind the lens and we were beyond thrilled both times. There are some typical group/family pictures as well as many candid, fun pictures that capture the personality of the bride/groom and both families as well. During the ceremony you don't even know that she and her 2nd shooter are there. They are very discreet and manage to get amazing and creative memories captured. I told both of my kids that the one thing you don't want to skimp on is your photographer. Those pictures can never be retaken…there is no do-over on that day when it comes to the memories the camera/photographer captures. If you are looking for a professional, fun, creative, and amazing photographer to capture your day or event, Sharaya Mauck Photography is an excellent choice!

Sharaya was the perfect photographer for my son's wedding. On the wedding day, she did everything she could to make sure that all the details got captured, and included the family in on pictures as well. I feel that sometimes the "old school" way of treating clients is starting to disappear.... but Sharaya treated all of us with respect, and made sure that the day was all about the Bride & Groom, and the family and friends. She simply caught all the moments with her beautiful photography skills. If you look at her pictures, they prove enough about her skill. Personally, I can vouch for her as a person and can tell that she cares about each and every one of her clients like they are family.
Like I said, she is the perfect photographer for anyone.

Sharaya was literally perfect, from the very beginning. We truly felt that choosing our photographer was the most important vendor decision revolving around the wedding..... so we did our research! After talking to Sharaya and multiple other photographers, we realized that Sharaya was in a league of her own! She is truly passionate about her work, and we loved her style and ability to capture the moment perfectly, without relying on editing to make it look good.
We both loved our pictures so much, and Sharaya has been amazing throughout the ordering process as well. We can't wait to get some of the pictures ordered, and up around the house.
If you are looking for a passionate, fun, amazing photographer - look no more! Sharaya is the real deal, and we loved working with her!

Sharaya was amazing - from start to finish! It was so refreshing and amazing to have a photographer that treats you like you are her only client. She sat down with us to plan, multiple times, and maintained communication from the time we booked her, all the way through the wedding ---- and even now, after the wedding. She is incredibly talented, perfectly personable and very fun. We will always use Sharaya for our photography needs, and would recommend her to anyone.
Thank you again for being the best photographer we could have ever asked for!

Sharaya was always perfectly cheerful and has an easy going personality which makes it fun for everyone involved. She hand delivered an item when she knew I was going out I town. She is determined to make your experience smooth and successful. I'm very glad to have spent the money for quality photos. Pictures really are worth a thousand words, so don't skimp out on quality pictures if it's something you really care about. I love reliving my wedding day through beautiful photographs.

Sharaya is wonderful and we could not be more pleased with how our photos turned out. After meeting her for the first time and looking at her portfolio, I knew we had to hire her. She has such a fun, positive personality and her work is beautiful! Sharaya includes engagement photos in her packages so we could get to know her and her style before the wedding. During the planning process, she was great at answering all of my questions and helped create a wedding day schedule. The day of the wedding, she made us feel comfortable throughout all the picture taking. She had great ideas for posing and used the natural light so well. The photos came out better than we imagined. They captured the emotion of the day and made everyone look so beautiful! We will definitely be using Sharaya for all of our future photos and recommending her to our family and friends!

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

One thing that was most important to us was the ability to stay within our budget, but take away incredibly memorable photos from our big day. From day one, Sharaya worked with us to help us create a package that fits our budget. I was a little nervous being in front of a camera, but she made us both feel so relaxed and comfortable. Our engagement photos turned out better than we could have ever imagined, and our wedding photos are unbelievable. Now, we let everyone know that Sharaya Mauck Photography is hands down the best photographer in Kansas City, and there is a proven reason she's sweeped the Best of Kansas City wedding awards for years in a row!

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!!

Sharaya was absolutely wonderful to work with. She was 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!

I am so happy I booked Sharaya for our engagement and wedding 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 is a blessing! Just look at the artistry in her photos and her eye for finding that unique and perfect shot, not to mention her mad editing skills! She has pure talent and a gift from God. She exceeded our expectations in every aspect. I still can't believe these beautiful pictures are of us. We didn't have professional engagement photos and so this was the first time we were in front of the camera. As a bride, she made me feel so beautiful and comfortable. Our bridal party and family fell in love with her too! We are so thankful we found her. Sharaya is professional, she has the best customer service, and her genuine passion for what she does makes her a stand out. She values the fact that your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life.
Don't think twice and Don't Pass her up. Please make room in your budget because she is worth it!
Love you Sharaya,
Derek and Em
