Sharaya Mauck is a young, inventive photographer, in the Kansas City area, that is such a beautiful person both inside and out. The minute Cody and I got engaged, I knew I wanted to schedule a consultation with her, in hopes that she would be available, for our April wedding date. I knew of Sharaya because we not only went to high school together but she was the photographer for my brother and sister-in-law’s wedding just two years prior. She did an amazing job capturing their wedding! I truly loved nearly every photo! She not only captured beautifully posed photographs but fun, candid shots that often go unnoticed or are quickly forgotten. Following their wedding, I continued to follow Sharaya’s work on social media including Facebook and her photography blog. She has continued to grow in her artistic ability to capture special events including engagements and weddings. Once we met with Sharaya during our consultation I was hooked and couldn’t wait for our fall engagement session. Sharaya asked for details about our relationship in order to research meaningful sites to shoot our engagement photos. We could not have hand picked better locations ourselves. Cody and I had a blast working with her during our engagement session. Cody had never met Sharaya prior to our consultation and after our engagement session he was very impressed with her work. We, along with our family and friends, were thrilled about our engagement photos and couldn’t wait to see how our wedding photos would turn out. During our engagement, Sharaya continued to stay in contact with us, which was very reassuring. Not only did I want to work with Sharaya because of her artistic ability but also because of her professionalism and reliability. Just prior to our engagement, a good friend got married and her wedding photographer backed out on her at the last minute. This left my friend scrambling at the last minute to book a new photographer and also required yet another deposit fee. That was not a gamble I was willing to take when it came to capturing precious moments from a once in a lifetime occasion. On our wedding day, Sharaya and her second photographer were so fun to work with and made sure to capture every last detail. Our wedding party also had a blast working with Sharaya and you can tell by several of the group shots. Sharaya does a good job balancing her physical presence as a photographer. She takes charge when needed, in order to keep up with the wedding day timeline, yet she blends into the woodwork during necessary times. For example, she is very efficient during family and wedding party photos. Yet, I wasn’t even aware of her presence during the ceremony or the reception. In addition, Cody and I could be totally relaxed in front of the camera during our private photos, which allowed our emotions from the day to really come to life. I believe that is a big part of why she is able to capture such timeless photographs. We just received our wedding photographs and it is going to be so hard to choose which ones to put in our wedding album but what a fun task! Cody and I were blessed to work with such a caring and creative photographer during this special time in our lives. Without hesitation, we would recommend Sharaya Mauck to anyone in need of a photographer!
My wife Angela and I chose Sharaya after looking at several photographers online. Sharaya's work speaks for itself on her website, and we could not be happier with our choice to use her as our wedding photographer. She has an amazing talent, was exceedingly professional and organized, and most importantly showed a strong desire to make our whole experience personalized just for us. Our wedding party could not stop commenting on how easy and fun she was to work with. We are thrilled with our pictures, and will proudly show them to anyone who is willing to look. I would gladly recommend her to anyone who is looking for similar services. Thank you, Sharaya!
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 very professional and outgoing and fit in well with the bridal party. She has a great personality that Beau and I immediately knew we wanted her to shoot our wedding. The photos we received from the engagement session and our wedding are stunning. Sharaya captured the most important day of our lives and with the quality of the photos we will be able to share them for many years to come!
I can not speak highly enough of Sharaya Mauck! She was a joy to work with, and made my husband and I feel so comfortable! She is an absolute sweetheart and a true professional. She really tries to get to know you as a couple before the big day. We were also able to customize our package to include exactly what we wanted. I just got our pictures back and they are to die for! The images are stunning and truly captured just how special our day was. Watching the slideshow she put together was like reliving the entire day. I have received so many compliments on my pictures from friends and family. Your wedding pictures are such an important part of your big day, and not something that you can go back and re do. Do yourself a favor and pick Sharaya Mauck. Your wedding day may be stressful, but you will be stress free about your photos!!
Sharaya made our wedding day fun and relaxing. Our photos are priceless. We would choose her over and over and over again! Thanks, Sharaya!
As the groom I can say that she is an awesome photographer that took some beautiful pictures for us. My fiance is super happy with the outcome and put such a huge smile on her face (and if you don't believe me, read the review below mine! That's her) Sharaya is amazing at what she does and it really shows throughout her work. She managed to make me smile (which I never do in pictures) and the photos turned out wonderful. I cannot stop looking at the pictures. My fiance also loves the little gift you gave us today! Thank you for making her so happy. I will definitely recommend Sharaya to my friends and family for engagement and wedding photography. Thank you again!
What can I say that hasn't already been said? Sharaya is the best photographer I've ever seen! I've been engaged for over 3 years and it's taken me about that long to find a photographer with a specific style in mind to take our pictures. I found her on theknot.com and the second I saw her work I knew I had to book her that very instant. She was so quick to respond back and was super flexible. I booked her October 2013 for a May 2014 photo shoot because I knew she was going to be busy during May because of the wedding season. I was so nervous before the photo shoot because I didn't know what to expect but she literally has this amazing presence about her that made me feel like I've known her for years. She's the most beautiful person (both inside and out) that has this creative, artistic style I rarely see with most photographers. Her photo style is so timeless, modern and romantic! It was EXACTLY what I was looking for! The time went by so fast during our shoot, I wish I could do it all over again! She gave us a sneak peek about two weeks after our shoot and had all of our photos done in less than a month! When she sent over the all the photos, my jaw dropped to the floor! I knew her work was amazing but WOW! I fell in love with ALL of the pics! Of course, I opted for the USB with all of the photos because I had to have them all! Hopefully we'll have the privilege of working with her again in the future. I definitely recommend Sharaya for all your engagement/wedding photography if you really want unforgettable photos! The only regret you'll have is not booking her sooner!
Sharaya is a true professional, and besides that she is absolutely a pleasure to work with. She has a real gift for design and lighting and placement that leads to wonderful results. She shot our wedding a month and a half ago and we just received our photos, and they are BEAUTIFUL. Literally the best wedding photos I've ever seen. I would recommend her to anyone, anywhere.
Sharaya is amazing. Everything about her business is excellent. Most importantly, she takes AMAZING photos. She has such a great eye for what is going to translate to a phenomenal picture from the lighting, the pose to the backdrop. She is absolutely wonderful to work with - very kind, upbeat and fun but also stays on schedule and directs everyone really well. Sharaya tells you exactly how to pose but it looks extremely natural and like she just snuck up on you being perfectly positioned. She also really knows how to run a great business - she is thoughtful and sincerely cares about her clients, their personalities and what they are looking for in their photos. I literally have never seen a better portfolio of wedding pictures and when we got ours back we absolutely loved them. She is great! By far our favorite vendor and best decision we made in wedding planning.
Sharaya Mauck Photography is AMAZING!! I am so HAPPY with my wedding photographs! They are beautiful! Not only does Sharaya take beautiful photographs, she is an absolute pleasure to work with!
Book her now!!
Sharaya made the process of planning for our wedding so fun! With surprises when she returned the photos to you and with cheerful email messages, she reflected the joy of the occasion. Most importantly, Sharaya and her assistant Jen captured the day beautifully. I love photography and was quite picky when making my choice and I couldn't be more pleased. Additionally, it was very important to my family that the photographers capture everything without being intrusive-- a difficult feat. The two of them more than met this criteria! I would highly recommend Sharaya Mauck!
My wife and I could not have been happier with our decision to use Sharaya as our wedding photographer. Every time she took our photos I felt at ease and just enjoyed myself. Sharaya was super easy to work with and very professional. Sharaya did not have us pose the entire time we took pictures and choose really creative spots. The way Sharaya takes pictures really captured the emotions from our big day. The photos she took came out phenomenal and my wife can't stop smiling or raving about our photos. You know what they say a happy wife equals a happy life :)
Sharaya did our wedding photos and first and foremost, she is an amazing photographer. We have gotten many many compliments on how our photos look straight out of a magazine. She did an amazing job capturing us exactly how we are and we could not be happier with our wedding pictures! Not only is she an amazing photographer, but she is an amazing person. She is so easy to work with and very professional. We had a blast taking our photos with our wedding party. My husband hates taking pictures, but even he had fun and commented on how comfortable she made him feel. She even sent us an awesome "date night" package when our photos were ready. Her attention detail in everything she does is what makes her great. I would hire her again in a second and will recommend her to anybody who asks about a photographer.
From our first meeting I knew Sharaya was the photographer for us. She is bubbly, energetic, super interested in her clients, and you can really tell she loves what she does. She was a joy to work with. She was very flexible with everything we wanted and some things that changed at the last minute. And our pictures...simply stunning. I cry every time I look at them because they are so beautiful. She captured my husband and I perfectly. Highly, highly, highly recommend this girl!! :)
I am a picture person. So finding the right photographer was very important to me and my daughter the bride. My daughter is the one who found Sharaya and after looking at some of her work, we hired her because she has a very unique eye. Her pictures are absolutely amazing. She has an ability to capture the joy, laughter and magic of the event. Being a military family we had to do much of the planning long distance because we were not going to be local until a few months before the wedding and Sharaya was very receptive to our needs. Sharaya is very detail oriented and had my daughter make a list of the most important pictures she wanted with the families. After the wedding when I needed a family picture for my Christmas card and before Sharaya had even edited their wedding pictures she sent not one but two within 24 hours of me asking. That is amazing service in my book. She is a pleasure to deal with. And our daughters wedding pictures are just beautiful, joyful, playful and truly wonderful memories. She has an amazing eye and I would highly recommend Sharaya.
We met with a few photographers, but as soon as we met with Sharaya we knew we wanted her to capture our wedding day. In that first meeting, she was so sweet and personable, and really took an interest in us as a couple. She made it a really easy decision for us.
Sharaya loves what she does and it's evident in her beautiful work. She is also so easy to work with and so easy to get along with. Neither my husband nor I feel very comfortable in front of the camera, but Sharaya helped us to feel relaxed and made the experience fun. We're really glad we had an engagement session with her because that, too helped us feel more prepared and more comfortable on our wedding day.
Sharaya was very professional throughout the entire process. She was easy to get a hold of and happy to answer any and all questions or concerns we might have. She was very flexible and helpful and worked with us to put together a package of services and products that would be best for our needs.
She was very quick to edit our engagement and wedding photos so that we would have them shortly after each event. I really was amazed at how quickly our wedding photos were done. She also had wonderful suggestions on locations to have our photos taken, and we felt like they were perfect for us and very personal. She also does little things throughout the process that really make the experience fun and made us feel really special - she is so thoughtful and sweet.
Our wedding photos are the most beautiful I've ever seen and we have received so many comments on how beautiful and creative they are. We really loved working with Sharaya!
Sharaya did a wonderful job capturing our wedding day! The pictures were of great quality, and she was very organized in making sure she got as many shots captured throughout the busy evening.Sharaya was a joy to work with!
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!
