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... Read More 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... Read More "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!!!!!!!!!!

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... Read More 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!

Oh my goodness- booking Sharaya was THE best wedding decision we made! Not only is she incredibly sweet and easy to work with, but she is extremely talented and thoughtful with her work. I truly cannot put into words about how over the moon I was about having the chance to have... Read More someone as talented as her shoot my dream wedding! I was ready to review Sharaya after we got our engagement photos back- because they were perfect and the experience was wonderful! Numerous times throughout the wedding planning process, I reached out to Sharaya with questions or comments- her responses were incredibly timely, even with her busy schedule. Our families have a few divorces and she was very attentive to this and made everyone feel comfortable during our wedding. In fact, MULTIPLE family and friends at our wedding made comments about Sharaya like, "She is so creative with her shots" or "She is constantly capturing every detail and moment- I am so impressed". Never once did I question if she would miss capturing a specific shot or anything like that- Sharaya is SO on top of everything. I have ZERO regrets about my experience with her. I am 10000% thrilled with our wedding photos and know that I will look back in 30 years and still think they are timeless. In fact, the venue is already asking to use her shots from the wedding for their marketing material! My best advice- go book Sharaya, and do it now- she will book up!

Book Sharaya. That’s the best wedding advice you’ll get. She is absolutely the best.

She also photographed our engagement shoot, and we were equally happy with the quality of those pictures. She is thoughtful and was helpful throughout the wedding planning process, working with me to come up with an itinerary and knowing locations in Kansas City for our photo shoots. Our wedding pictures make me feel beautiful and are the perfect representation of our wedding. I honestly believe that she is the best out there.
