A Day to Adore was our wedding photographer and Deanna was the best photographer ever! We were planning our wedding from a different city and Deanna was beyond helpful. She worked around our schedule when we were visiting Kansas City. She also offered help with anything, which... Read More was sweet when planning a wedding at a distance. She thoroughly took note of the shots we wanted and day of was so organized. Best part, the photography is beautiful! The pictures were unique and perfect for our style. There was no worry from us the day of and she was flexible with getting impromptu pictures. I can't recommend A Day to Adore more!

Deanna was a dream photographer, my experience could not have been any better. When we first met she was so organized, she had forms that she filled out so that everything we talked about would be remembered for the big day. I had no clue what I was doing and she basically made... Read More the whole timeline for my wedding day. The photos she took are gorgeous and she was such a big help posing us since I don't know how to. My son took engagement photos with us and she was so patient and sweet with him. Our wedding was in January, it snowed and it was super cold. It didn't bother Deanna to be outside taking the snowy pictures I had wanted so badly. I also love that in addition to prints I got a thumb drive of TONS of edited photos that I can look at and cherish forever. I would recommend Deanna to anyone who is planning a wedding, she is the BEST!

Cannot even state how amazing she is! My daughter did a bridal portrait session that was simply indescribable. The wedding day Deanna and her photographer were everywhere. She then returned on the post-wedding day for sunset photos with the new bride and groom. I don’t know how... Read More she didn’t collapse! Her energy and love for what she does simply shines through. She gets so excited when she sees the shot and that enthusiasm is contagious. She also did our paper products; invitations, reception program and place cards with a custom monogram that were simply stunning and unified the vision my daughter had. I can't recommend her enough.

Deanna of a Day to Adore was one of the best things about our wedding! My husband and I are in the military and we had a rare weekend together in Kansas City. With only 36 hours to plan our ceremony, Deanna was our first call. I had seen her work online and loved the... Read More photojournalist style she uses - she really tells a story, rather than focusing on staged shots 'typical' of weddings. This was so important to us because there were a lot of people who were not at our ceremony. Deanna's shots told our story so beautifully that several friends and family remarked that it felt like they were there! Deanna helped with so much of our wedding planning, assisting me to select a beautiful venue and several options for photo locations. She even recommended the shop where I bought my dress. On the day of the ceremony she showed up and I immediately felt a connection to her. I hate having my pictures taken, but you can see that I am genuinely comfortable and joyful in all the photos. I felt like she was an old friend. Deanna's energy was so important because our wedding was tiny - my, my husband, two friends, the chaplain, and his wife. She actually rode in the wedding car with us so she could get a few shots en route and I just loved having her by my side. I created a Pinterest album to show her what I was looking for, and long after the ceremony I went back and realized that she had recreated and even improved on ALL the shots I'd asked for. The turnaround time for our shots was days, and she even went back and touched up a few photos that we were planning on having printed. I didn't realize that we would get not only the digital prints, but that she would also create a slideshow to music. This was such a lovely touch because it is what we shared with all the family and friends who were not able to be there. Choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of the vendor process because the photos will be how you re-live your whirlwind day. If you select Deanna and her team, I promise you will be thrilled with your photos and will have a wonderful experience before, during, and after your wedding day as you work with her.

We could not have chosen a better wedding photographer! Deanna was so amazing to work with and definitely went above and beyond in every aspect--100% worth the investment! Having your picture taken can kind of be uncomfortable but Deanna made everything go so smoothly and made... Read More everything very comfortable. We used Deanna for our engagement and wedding pictures and it was so hard to choose our favorite photos--which was a great 'problem' to have. You can tell Deanna is a seasoned professional especially when it came to our wedding shot list of pictures we needed, she made sure we had all of the pictures we wanted and it was in a super timely fashion. The turn-around time to receiving our edited wedding photos was very quick. Deanna also made a photo album that was the perfect display of our big day within a couple of days of letting her know our favorite photos. Deanna's talent and awesome personality really shined through as even our wedding guests complimented us on how sweet and talented she was and how beautifully the pictures turned out. I could go on and on about how great Deanna was to work with and of her talents--these are just a couple of highlights. I would highly recommend Deanna for any event!

Wow! Where to even begin. Deanna is absolutely amazing! She is an incredibly talented photographer with many great and creative ideas!! She is the sweetest person and really makes you feel comfortable with a camera always on you. My husband and I were married on Saturday and she... Read More had our thank you pictures to us by Monday morning so that we could get our cards ordered! Throughout the entire wedding planning process Deanna was always there if I had any wedding planning questions even if it had nothing to do with her job! By the end of our wedding my husband and I felt like she was more our friend than our wedding photographer. You can't go wrong choosing Deanna!

Deanna was amazing. We worked with her from the very beginning.

She is so amazingly talented and creative, and... Read More she really works to not only capture the beauty of the moment but who you are as a couple. She was so helpful and inventive when it came to making our invitations. If you want quality, this is it. My advice to any couple is this: save money on everything except your photos. Your photos last while many things from the day do not. Quality photos are worth it and Deanna offers nothing less than stunning!

We loved A Day to Adore Photography for our wedding! Deanna was the perfect fit for us and for our day! She said her objective was to not know that she or her second photographer were there and she accomplished just and it showed in their work. When we looked back at the...

Deanna also did our engagement pictures and all of our stationary for our wedding and again did a fabulous job! She listened to our ideas and what we had in mind and put her creative touch on it to make it turn out to be even better than what we had requested. Her pricing packages are also very reasonable.

Deanna Johnson is absolutely amazing!

She definitely goes above and... Read More beyond in every aspect, from the first meeting to the receiving the final flash drive in a super cute box with some extra prints.

Choosing to work with Deanna at A Day to Adore was one of the best decisions we made! Deanna was fantastic to work with during the planning process and responded quickly any time I reached out to her. She designed our save the dates and invitations and I couldn't have been more... Read More pleased with how they turned out. With very little direction from me, Deanna designed something that was just what I wanted. Our wedding pictures turned out perfectly. Deanna is such a professional and did a great job of efficiently moving people in and out to get all of the shots we wanted. During the reception anytime we saw a moment we wanted her to capture we looked around to see her already taking the picture. She had a very fast turnaround on our finished pictures to accommodate the holidays and our pictures are absolutely beautiful! Looking through them felt like reliving our wedding day and every special moment was there - including the ones I didn't see during the day. I will be recommending Deanna to all of my friends and look forward to using her for our photography needs in the future!

She's organized and willing to help plan the photography aspect of your day with you ahead of time so the day of, there is no sweat! She is reasonably priced...

Photography found me and I fell in love, almost by accident. One day it was just for fun, now it is my life. It is the thing that I do that has come to define me; the thing that allowed me to gain the self-confidence to live the life everyone else talks about. There is nothing like the click of a shutter and the flutter in your heart when you know that it was a perfect moment that now will be remembered for a lifetime. Photography is a dynamic. It is a challenge with ever changing life and light that you have to be completely immersed in it to understand how it lives and breathes. It is the
