Adrienne is the best in her class!! She did our wedding and has captured many family milestones since. I love going to see Adrienne - it's like going to see a dear friend who just happens to be an amazing photographer! She is an extremely talented at what she does and I'm so glad we found her.

adrienne maples A pioneer in the wedding industry, Adrienne broke from the once traditional approach to photographing weddings: ‘F8 and be there’. After obtaining her BFA in photography, she worked early weddings with a tripod, film and a medium format camera. Today she receives international acclaim for her artistic approach to wedding and portrait photography.

Adrienne currently resides in Overland Park, the burbs of Kansas City. When she’s not behind a camera, you can find her enjoying impromptu dance parties with her daughter or teaching Pete-the-dog new tricks. In her spare time she does normal things like singing Bohemian Rhapsody or perfecting her evil laugh.
"Adrienne is amazing! The entire experience from the moment I called her to the moment she delivered our photos has been fantastic. Her positive energy made the photo shoot super fun. Her artistic talent and the way she connects with her clients result in gorgeous photos." Lori Schreiber

Kansas City Wedding Photographer

(While Adrienne photographs weddings worldwide she primarily works as a Kansas City Wedding Photographer & Overland Park Portrait Photographer. She limits the number of weddings she accepts annually in order to maintain quality.)

A New Beginning; Words from the Artist

  “The moment I picked up my first camera at the tender age of 15, I was in love. I fell hard and fast, seeing no other path for the future. I was hooked on the magic I could create through my lens. Prior to my introduction to the camera, I spent my time singing, performing and creating with charcoal and paint. Despite these other interests, my college years were devoted to developing the skills necessary to work professionally as a photographer.

More than 20 years have passed since I first fell in love with the camera. Since that day, I have loved and lost but my love of photography and capturing moments remains constant.

This year brought about some profound changes to my future. Only now am I beginning to think of what else I might have to offer the world.

Let the new journey begin…”
