"I swear, we had the absolute BEST photographer in the world. We recently got our engagement pictures taken by Rita and are over the moon with how amazing they turned out. Her website shows her stunning talent, but going through a session with her- its easy to see why so many people adore her!! She made us feel so comfortable, and kept us laughing the entire session. I HATE getting my picture taken and she made it seem so natural. I didn't even care that we were in a busy park. She helped keep our focus on each other, and our puppies. I never once felt super awkward or posed or that she had anyone on her mind but our little family. You can tell she LOVES what she does, and I feel like that truly comes across in her artwork. Looking over these pictures, I feel like she really captured US. I am so SO grateful for you Rita and your artistic eye!! You truly are a beautiful person inside and out. We will continue to use Rita for everything major in our lives. I wouldn't trust life's most precious memories to be captured by anyone else." Lindsey
"There are not enough adjectives to describe how awesome Rita is at what she does! I knew I loved her work before we even met. Have you seen her portfolio? I swear I loved every photo in it! Her ability to capture photos in the most beautiful natural light is incredible. Her talent and style were enough for us to want to book, but her warm personality is what really sealed the deal! She genuinely loves love and that is one of the most important qualities a photographer can have when documenting a couple's love story. We had our engagement session last night and it was such a wonderful experience! She took her time to get to know us as individuals and as a couple, she put up with our crazy dogs, and potentially got poison ivy all to ensure that we were comfortable and that our pictures were great. I can't wait for Rita to capture our wedding and other adventures as our love and life grow! She's the best! " Whitney
"Jen did an amazing job at our engagement ceremony. I looked at numerous photographers in KC but Heirloom really spoke to me and their artistic ability. I am more than happy and beyond pleased with the work. Everyone loved the pictures and Jen did an incredible job at capturing all the beautiful moments. Thank you Jen for being so patient and extremely friendly. We loved having you at our house and I cannot wait for our future photoshoots.
Thank you once again for your beautiful work!" Navi
"If I could select a higher rating, I would. Rita has been AMAZING from the moment I inquired about availability for our wedding. She's fast to respond and so very personable - she's an instant friend. We met up to make sure it was a "match" and left smiling knowing that our engagement and wedding photos were going to be exactly what we were looking for. Our engagement session was fun and a breeze. My fiancé and I wanted photographs that documented our life and relationship. Rita was on board instantly. We choose our favorite date night restaurant, Pot Pie, and then headed to our old stomping grounds for some local KC photographs and ice cream. The entire session was effortless, it was like catching up with a friend who happened to be taking our photos.
After our session, Rita had a sneak peek on her blog within no time. The photos are gorgeous and capture us perfectly. Rita has a great eye for the perfect shot.
As an art director, I work with photographers regularly. I scoured online portfolios for days until I found Heirloom's website. In my opinion, Heirloom Photo Company is the best option in Kansas City. I would recommend Rita and Jen to anyone!" Laura
"My fiancé and I just finished our engagement shoot with Rita and we had so much fun! Rita was so laid back and made everything just feel so easy, effortless, and comfortable. She also had a vision for our photos and she knew exactly what she wanted which made it super easy to follow. Most of all, she let us be who we are as a couple for the photos and I am so grateful that when I look back on these pictures, I will see who we are together and not just a beautiful photo (though I will see that too because her photos are amazing). I am looking so forward to seeing our pictures from the e-session, as well as what she will capture on our big day in November!" -Hannah
"You can’t remove the mechanical process of someone taking photos but the exuberant energy that Rita brings to the table, gave us the ease to become natural, and captured our various expressions of happiness." Andrew
"We absolutely love Rita! We just had our engagement session tonight and had such a great time. She was so fun to work with and brought so much laughter that we didn't even have to have those awkward posed laughing pictures. She had so many great ideas. I'm very excited to see the rest of the photos! We can't wait to have her photograph our wedding! Much love, Amanda and Ben"
"I only have incredible things to say about Jen. The meticulous attention to detail made my engagement shoot and wedding photography not only perfect but so enjoyable. The photographers actually care about what you want and strive to give you the BEST pictures that they can. They didn’t miss a single moment and when my husband and I went back to look at our day, we were completely in love with every shot. Jen was super professional and so caring and extremely nice. Not only did we love the pictures but had such a great experience, I wouldn’t hire anyone else to shoot big moments in my life!" -Cory
