About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Real moments, that's my number one goal as a photographer. I consider myself a candid/lifestyle photographer, and make sure I grab even the in between moments that are meant to be remembered.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Photos are meant to be looked at over and over again as the years pass. You can share them with loved ones that will cherish them as much as you, and something that can be passed on for years to come. I love that I get to help you with those moments!

    Unique and Creative
    Whitney took my senior pictures 7 years ago when she was in college (and decided to see if her photography hobby could be a career). Just this year she took my engagement photos and will be doing our wedding as well! Super easy to work with, creative, and affordable. You'll get pictures that truly stand out. Would highly recommend.

    Highly Recommend!
    Whitney was fantastic! She did our engagement photos as well as photographed our wedding day and all the pictures came out wonderfully. She captured lots of candid moments at the wedding with both my husband and I as well as all our guests. Those turned out to be some of my favorite photos of the day. She asked what pictures were must haves for us, but she went above and beyond it taking creative and memorable shots. If I had it to do all over again, I wouldn't change a thing about our photography experience with Whitney!

    Maternity photos better than I ever imagined!
    Whitney took my maternity photos and all I can say is, "wow!". I shared with her some shots and ideas I really liked before our session and to say she captured those ideas is an understatement. She totally exceeded my expectations and hopes for my first ever maternity shoot. I think of myself as being pretty picky when it comes to photos and angles and the finished product and sometimes worry my visions won't be captured (this happened with my wedding photos.. Whitney DID NOT take them, I should add.. I wish I would have used her). Whitney provided great ideas and locations for our shoot and delivered so many photos for us! It was so hard deciding which photos to print and frame for my home (I wanted to print them all!) I had the photos back within a week and a half of our session, which was AWESOME! We have a digital copy of every photo so that sharing with friends and family couldn't be easier. Anyone that is in need of a photographer, choose Whitney! She rocks!!

    Whitney Kinnison Photography highly recommended!!!
    Whitney has photographed me a few times, but most recently we worked together to get me a fun, creative headshot (we ended up with some great headshots and much more). Whitney is so much more than a fantastic photographer, but we'll start there. I'm always impressed by the quality of work she continues to produce - real life images, never boring or cookie-cutter, but creative and emotion evoking - I love that about her work. What makes Whitney different from other great photographers though, is her bubbly personality and empathy for the client. Not everyone loves being in front of the camera - she gets that and will make you forget that maybe you're one of those people. Whitney's laugh will have you laughing and before you know it she'll have captured the most beautiful images of you being your true self - the best kind of photo, if you ask me. Whitney Kinnison Photography will always come highly recommended by me!

    Greatest photography experience!
    Whitney took our family pictures. We had an active 18 month old who absolutely hated sitting still while getting his pictures taken. Whitney encouraged our son to run, move, and be himself and the end result was amazing. We have the pictures framed all over our house. We have already booked another session because we loved her work so much!

    Such a fantastic photographer!! My husband HATES picture taking normally and immediately felt comfortable with Whitney. VERY easy to work with. She is always open to any ideas you might have in mind for your session. Whitney also works really hard to get your pictures back very quickly. So happy we found her when we were pregnant and have continued to use her as our baby boy grows. She will definitely be our family photographer for many years to come. LOVE

    Wedding photographer
    She was our wedding photographer and was phenomenal! The pictures turned out amazing! She is very kind, patient and professional. We loved her and her pictures!

    Absolutely Amazing
    Whitney is great at what she does! Being very nervous for my first ever photo shoot, I was worried that I wouldn't do well and photos of myself were going to turn out showing my nerves. However, Whitney really made everything during that photo shoot so relaxed and fun! When I got my engagement pictures back, they were the best photos I've ever seen! They were truly amazing! She really captured the love my fiancé and I have for each other in her photos. I still get comments to this day about how amazing my engagement photos turned out. I can't wait to see how my wedding photos will look!! I would definitely recommend Whitney as a photographer. She is really great to work with and does an amazing job with her photography!

    I would never recommend anyone other than Whitney Kinnison for engagement, wedding, and (hopefully) pregnancy announcements


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I have a starting price and after getting to know what the client wants, I can give them a personal quote.
What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I love to meet with potential customers to go over how I work and get a better understanding of what they're wanting from their photographer.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I've been taking photos since I was a kid, but I did go to college studying Photography. I've been shooting weddings since 2008.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I asked for a camera from Santa as a kid and that's really what started it all. I learned on film and started playing with photoshop when it first came out. I'm not sure I could give up taking photos if I wanted, the camera stalks me. :)
What types of customers have you worked with?
I work with all types! I say I work best with somebody who loves the idea of capturing candid moments and doesn't mind a silly photographer. I love being able to work with my clients as a team. They express their vision and they value my style and together we can create some great images!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I recently shot a wedding in July where the bridal party hopped into a trolley and we rode all over Kansas City to get photos. They let me pick some spots that might not be the most popular locations but gave us BEAUTIFUL photos! And I made sure to get their locations they asked for! They were so much fun, and we had so many laughs together. A time I will never forget!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Find a style that grabs your attention! Ask the photographer questions that you think are most important.
