OutstandingReviewed on 8/20/2015 Jacky O
Hiring Sharaya was A) a NO BRAINER and B) one of the BEST decisions I made when planning my wedding! I found her by simply googling wedding pictures held at my venue. The minute I came across one of her photos (out of the hundreds of others I looked at), I knew she was the photographer for me. The first time I met her, I felt like I was talking to one of my best girlfriends. She truly cared about my love story, every detail of my wedding, and how I wanted my photos to come out. I of course had no idea what I was doing, so she helped and guided me along the way. She is professional, detail oriented, and personalizes everything (seriously I think she sent me 2 or 3 gifts in the mail!). My photos look like they are out of a fairy tale - seriously, who's wedding was that? Was that me?! My family can't stop talking about them and I can't stop staring at them. They are absolutely 100% what I wanted and are perfect. Thank you Sharaya!!
Sharaya is AMAZING!!!Reviewed on 5/15/2015 Kimberly F
As soon as we met with Sharaya and saw her work, my husband and I immediately knew she was the photographer for us! She is the perfect mix between friendly and professional and managed to make having our pictures taken an enjoyable experience (neither my husband or I are "picture people"). I really wanted our engagement and wedding photos to turn out well because we have very few photos together compared to most couples and I wanted to be able to look back on our big day. I like to think I wasn't a "bridezilla" but I did get a little frustrated a couple of times and Sharaya couldn't have handled it better. It takes a special type of person to be thrown into a stranger's life-changing day and handle it like a champ! Our pictures turned out perfect!!!! We're SO ecstatic and wouldn't change a single thing about them!!! They're exactly what we wanted and I will recommend Sharaya Mauck Photography to EVERYONE!! Thank you for everything Sharaya!!
Simply the BEST!!!!!!!!!!Reviewed on 10/31/2014 Mariah D
Sharaya Mauck is one of the most talented photographers in the Kansas City area!! She is not only a tremendously talented artist but you will not find a more genuine and kindhearted person. I first met Sharaya through our husbands who are long time friends from college. I initially didn’t know much about Sharaya’s skills as a photographer but after we got engaged I went on the hunt for the perfect photographer to capture our wedding. At first, we looked at other photographers in the area because we didn’t want Sharaya to feel pressured into working on our wedding day. However, after interviewing two different photographers and looking at countless websites they just couldn’t compare to her work. I found myself stalking her website when other weddings would go up on her blog. We knew that she was exactly what we were looking for so we sat down with her to see if she would be willing to do it. I am SO glad she said yes! It was the best decision we made! Sharaya was awesome to work with throughout the planning process. She was never anything but professional and knowledgeable not only in her area of expertise but also with other vendors throughout the city. It was very clear to me that she loves working in the wedding industry, and strives to further her knowledge and artistry. She was very helpful in suggesting different locations when we were planning our engagement photos. I wanted something that would look kind of vintage with the option to take pictures in a field. Sharaya went ahead of time and scouted all the locations that we would take photos so that everything went smoothly and the light would be just right. She even worked around my crazy idea of those giant balloons that you see on Pinterest. She made us feel so natural and relaxed. When we got the pictures back we were blown away…they were so beautiful! We received so many compliments on them! The day of our wedding was one of the most hot and humid days this summer. We were all dying but Sharaya never even showed her discomfort. She was very effective at moving all of our rowdy wedding party into place to get the shots we needed quickly. Sharaya and her second photographer were so much fun to be around! I was very impressed with their constant professionalism and lighthearted attitude. They made it so easy to be ourselves and to expose all our emotions in front of the camera. I think that is a big part of why I love our wedding photos. We have posed photos but also moments that I didn’t even know they were there to capture. They did a great job of capturing a day that went by so fast on film so that we can look back and remember those special moments. Not to mention, she artistically photographed all the handcrafted details and fresh flower arrangements that we worked on for months and days before the wedding. We put so much effort into making our wedding a reflection of “us” so I am so happy to have these beautiful photographs to remember it by especially ones that we can proudly display in our home. We would definitely recommend Sharaya Mauck to anyone that is in need of a photographer!
I offer my highest recommendation to anyone considering using Sharaya for any occasion that they wish to capture. My wife and I had a destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico at the El Dorado Royale Resort, and hired Sharaya to capture our wedding week. I typically don't like having my picture taken, but Sharaya made us feel extremely comfortable, and the finished product was perfect. Having someone who was not only knowledgable in regards to photography but extremely passionate was very comforting in knowing we were in good hands. She is truly a master of her craft. I am very thankful that she captured our wedding.
I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was working with Sharaya! My husband Ben and I are from Minnesota and hired her for our destination wedding in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Sharaya was so easy to communicate with, very professional and an absolute sweetheart. Although Ben and I had never actually met Sharaya (other than our Skype sessions) before we arrived in Mexico, it was so easy to work with her and she made us feel SO comfortable. Lastly, and most importantly, our photos turned out absolutely amazing- seriously, everyone is so impressed with them. Sharaya is amazing!
After getting engaged, I knew I had to find the perfect photographer, this was one of my top priorities. Sharaya will not disappoint! As some of the reviews mentioned below, she makes it a very personal experience. At our initial visit, I remember talking about Chris and I for the first 20 minutes before going into different package options. She is also very detail oriented and organized. Most wedding vendors I reached out to were not the most responsive, Sharaya was responsive and attentive. My husband wasn't to thrilled about taking engagement photos but afterwards he said it was very comfortable and fun this was because of Sharaya's coaching/personality. You can't go wrong...she did an amazing job and we are excited to have our album and photos for years to come.
Sharaya was an outstanding photographer!! She was incredibly helpful, relaxing and fun on our wedding day and she made my husband and I feel incredibly comfortable. It was easy to see that she was working hard to help us make our day perfect. The pictures came out better than I could have imagined and we were SO thrilled with each one!!! I highly recommend her to any couple out there searching for a wedding photographer!!

Sharaya has an amazing ability to capture the joy at a wedding. We will cherish forever the expressions and moments she captured at our son's wedding! Sharaya's exuberant personality is contagious and is reflected in her awesome photographs. I would highly recommend Sharaya to any prospective bride and groom!
I LOVED my Pictures!Reviewed on 12/15/2015 Bobbi B
Sharaya is awesome! I highly recommend hiring her as your photographer for your special day, it isn't something you will regret. She snapped so, so many pictures of our special day, I have no idea how I'm supposed to chose which ones our my favorites. Sharaya had a lot of great ideas, and worked with us on what we were visualizing for our special day. The pictures turned out AMAZING! I'm so glad we spent the money to get these awesome pictures that we will cherish forever. I can't say enough good things about Sharaya and her professionalism, creativity, and photography. I would highly recommend her and her work to anyone looking for a photographer to capture all the special moments of their big day!
Sharaya Mauck PhotographyReviewed on 12/08/2015 Laura D
We used Sharaya as our photographer for our engagement session. She was awesome! We are having a destination wedding so we decided to use the resorts photographer for our actual wedding but do keep in mind Sharaya is willing to travel!I highly recommend Sharaya for your engagement and wedding photography needs. She knows what photographs well and gets inspired in the moment. She captured absolutely beautiful photos, which has been worth every penny!
The best decision we have made and will continue to make!Reviewed on 12/02/2015 Krystal G
It was such a pleasure working with Sharaya! She has such a positive and bubbly personality so it was a joy working with her. My husband and I were recommended to Sharaya by a coworker of mine. After looking at her website and video about herself, I knew I wanted her to capture our special day for us. Sharaya's quality of photography is absolutely stunning! I have been so happy with all of our pictures and I can't stop looking at them! We trust Sharaya and her talent and we were always open to doing some creative night shots! I'm so happy with our decision as hiring Sharaya as our photographer. She is such a caring and genuine person and you will see how much she cares about the details and the little things after hiring her. I would HIGHLY recommend Sharaya for any type of photography!
Best wedding photographer ever!!Reviewed on 11/25/2015 Sam S
Sharaya was an absolute dream to work with I don't know how I got so lucky with her as a photographer! My photos were stunning, she was amazing my friends and family cannot get over how beautiful my photos turned out! Just looking at my photos takes me right back to that moment in time, how much better does it get than that! Book Sharaya you will be so pleased you did!
We are so happy with our engagement pictures from Sharaya! If our wedding was local, we would so have her do them! Our experience was better than expected, she is a joy to work with and the photos were phenomenal!
I do not know where to start with reviewing how amazing Sharaya is! She has such a gift and is so talented with always finding the best angle or ensuring that you get the wedding pictures you always envisioned! We initially met with her after I saw her amazing photos on her website and I was worried she might be out of our budget, but after looking and reviewing MANY other photographers, Matt and I could not imagine anyone else doing our pictures. She is very easy to work with, organized and made us both feel so comfortable during our engagement and wedding photos. I cannot imagine having anyone else take our photos and we have received endless compliments about our beautiful pictures.
Hands down, best choice we made for the weddingReviewed on 10/28/2015
Sharaya Mauck and Sharaya Mauck photography was the best decision we could have made for our wedding. She was professional, fun and organized. Not only did she take the most amazing pictures I've ever seen, but she collaborated with the wedding coordinator and DJ to keep us and the wedding on schedule. The pictures were delivered in a timely fashion and were amazingly beautiful. 10 out of 10 stars.

Awesome!Reviewed on 9/22/2015 Michelle L
Our daughter's wedding was in July of 2015. Before the wedding she told us the most important thing to her were the pictures because that is what she would have to look back on forever! So, she did her research and found the perfect photographer, Sharaya Mauck. Sharaya took her engagement and wedding pictures. These pictures are truly breathtaking! I cried when I first saw the wedding pictures. They are truly perfect and the memories they provide will last a lifetime! Sharaya is both fun and professional to work with! There will be no disappointment using her as your photographer! We love you and your work, Sharaya! Thank you from the bottom of our heart!
A Brides Best Friend!Reviewed on 9/06/2015 Kirsten B
All the wonderful things I have to say about Sharaya would not be able to fit within this review, THAT'S HOW AMAZING SHE IS!!!!! I'm superrrrrr picky about photography, since I loving taking pictures myself, but I had known years before I was even engaged that I wanted Sharaya as my wedding photographer because her photos consistently amazed me! She is so genuinely caring and was extremely helpful in every aspect of our wedding planning! Without her, I don't know how I would've been able to create the wedding of my dreams! Her talent and eye through a camera lens is so artistic, yet simple and classic, and she is seriously the nicest, sweetest person! Sharaya truly is on your side through the whole process, cheering you on and helping you in any and every way possible. She was always, always there for us! We loved all the vendors she recommended, and all the products she offers are very well put together. I love you Sharaya!!! Thank you for giving us the blessing of viewing our memories in such a beautiful way! I'm so thankful for you!
Fogle WeddingReviewed on 8/24/2015
Sharaya, was absolutely fabulous! She is one of the sweetest ladies I've ever met. She did a wonderful job on our engagement photos and wedding photos. :) I would recommend her in a heart beat. Our wedding was in Joplin, MO and she did an amazing job adapting to a new place and location she had never been to. You would have never known it was her first Joplin wedding. My family, husband, and I were all SOO happy with our photos. Love her!
Amazing Wedding PhotographerReviewed on 8/18/2015 Michelle C
Sharaya Mauck Photography was the best choice we could have made. Sharaya's attention to detail was perfect. The quality of her work has such a light, fresh and unique feel. She was very personal and asked in depth questions to get to know us. I enjoy looking through my engagement and wedding photos frequently. She did a perfect job at capturing us in the moment on our day. Thanks so much!
Beautiful memories!!Reviewed on 7/14/2015
Our daughter and Son in law married May 2, 2015. A few months have passed since that very special day, and what is left are great memories and the most gorgeous photos!! The important things to note on this review are: Sharaya is very professional yet extremely nice. You feel like she has been your friend for years! Sharaya and her assistant have tons of energy and eager to please. Most importantly are the beautiful photos she takes that will last a lifetime. Sharaya is fantastic! We have so many photos to prove it! Thank You So Much Sharaya!
Amazing!Reviewed on 7/07/2015 Paige S
I can't even begin to express how amazing it was to have Sharaya there for our special day! She has a very unique eye for details! She offers so much with her packages and it is totally worth every dime! She is professional and the turnover on pictures is amazing and quick! She was a blast to work with and if she can make my husband smile in pictures she can make anybody! She will be our photographer for life now! She isn't just there to take pictures, she really does care about you and how you are feeling and wanting to make sure everything is as perfect as it can be! She isn't scared to think outside the box or even climb/get dirty for the perfect picture! It was such an amazing experience to have her there and capture this amazing day for us! We love her!
Outstanding photographer!Reviewed on 6/14/2015 Andrew P
Sharaya was a pleasure to work with and we could not be happier with our wedding and engagement photos. I can not say enough amazing things about her and her business! My husband and I were initially nervous about our engagement session, thinking that it would be awkward to be in front of the camera. Sharaya made us feel very comfortable, giving us direction and laughing along with us when we felt silly! We were amazed when we got our final engagement photos. She clearly captured our love and the results were breathtaking. Sharaya is very easy to contact, organized and I had no worries that everything would work out for the wedding. On our wedding day, we had so much fun with Sharaya and her 2nd photographer Becca. She does a great job of actively coordinating the wedding party to get the perfect shot but at the same time being fun and relaxed to make the experience a blast! When we received our final wedding photos, we were blown away. It was amazing to relive this day through her beautiful photography. We have so many great photos, I don't know how we will ever pick out pictures for a wedding album! I recommend her to any friend with an upcoming wedding. Her passion for photography makes her an unbelievable artist along with a great business woman. Thank you Sharaya!!
We love our pictures!Reviewed on 5/26/2015 julie b
I can't say enough good things about working with Sharaya for our wedding- it has been an excellent experience right from the start. Our situation was a little different in that we had a very short engagement (3 months), but still had a full traditional wedding with all the details. Due to the fact we had a short engagement, we didn't want engagement pictures; Sharaya tailored a package that worked for us that didn't include engagement pictures, but still provided us with everything we wanted for the wedding day (10 hours of coverage and two photographers was very important to us). Our first meeting went great, she has a great personality- upbeat, always positive and knows how to keep people engaged. During wedding planning Sharaya provided a lot of helpful information for planning for the day of (heel savers, umbrellas, transportation for wedding picture, timeline, etc) and the wedding day went excellent. I will be the first to say, I was exhausted with pictures and there was a couple times I thought the pose was a bit silly, then I remembered she is the photographer and I loved her work I saw online and that I just needed to trust and do whatever was requested, and WOW, I am very glad we did! Our pictures are amazing! We receive compliments from everyone who has viewed and personally, we can't pick a favorite- there are just too many! Sharaya did a great job working with our wedding party and families (including 7 kids aged 10 and under) and it shows in the pictures, people are relaxed and having a great time. Like I said at the beginning, there is just so many things to compliment- I highly recommend Sharaya Mauck Photography!
