Kansas City Hip & Unique Wedding Photographers


Wedding Pioneer is for the adventurous couple.  Would you prefer a more unique, modern, and creative celebration of your love with hand-selected Kansas City wedding venues, vendors, and photographers? 

Wedding Pioneer connects brides and couples with the hip and stylish side of Kansas City wedding vendors. Our vendors are excited to work with nontraditional couples like you. We understand that you want something different, and here you'll find the wedding creatives that embrace the rad, the romantic, the fresh, the free-spirited, and the wild-at-heart.  We love the outdoors, photographing couples in nature, and traveling to your perfect destination.  

Our featured photographers serve your favorite Kansas City area (both Missouri and Kansas) locations;  Lee's Summit, Independence, Blue Springs, Raymore, Raytown, Grandview, Overland Park, Olathe, Leawood, and Shawnee to name a few!

We'd love for you to take some time browsing our hand-selected featured artists (click their photo to be directed to their website), or navigate to our inquiry page where we can bring you a set of options based on your budget and wedding date.

More about who we are...

At Wedding Pioneer, we help connect couples with hand-selected wedding artists around the US and abroad. That's right...hand-selected photographers, vendors, and venues! That means we review each artists' work to make sure we are bringing engaged couples a "select best" that each region has to offer.

All our artists are hand-selected for their unique style and creative voice. We feature small groups of wedding photographers, vendors, and venues in each region, saving you time from searching the big name wedding directories. Our typical bride doesn't find joy in searching through 300 or more photographer options.  Big-name wedding directories have many benefits, but can be overwhelming to brides.       

We encourage a sense of community with our featured photographers.  We regularly meet with one-another and constantly push each other to grow in our craft.  If you are a photographer, vendor, or venue interested in Wedding Pioneer membership, let us know you are out there!
