vibrant + joyful wedding photography

the wedding experience

I'm here to help you make your photo + video experience very simple and fun! 

As you're looking for a wedding photographer, you want to make sure to hire someone that will make you feel comfortable in front of the camera to ensure that they capture your genuine joy and personality! With over 150 weddings photographed, I have some great experience and have learned a thing or two!

  I'll help you plan your wedding day timeline to be perfect for you, help create and recommend the best locations in Kansas City for your engagement and wedding portraits, and be able to give you tips + tricks to design your perfect day! I'll tell you my favorite dad-jokes to help you smile and make you feel amazing in front of the camera! I'll also deliver your gorgeous gallery of images soon after your wedding day to be able to share with your family and friends! 

My goal is to give you an amazing photo + video experience and to deliver stunning photographs that you'll truly cherish for a lifetime to come!

fun facts about me

"The best part about working with Mariam is she genuinely cares about you and your story. Her magic is the ability she has to capture that story in her stunning photographs. We had a non-traditional reception, and Mariam was happy to work within the schedule for our event. She also checked in regularly between booking and the event to help in any way she could. During the actual event, she made everyone feel very comfortable in front of the camera, and took some really awesome/creative shots. I love the way she was able to integrate nature's vibrant colors into the photos. Her regular turn-around time for finished photos is thirty days, but she sent sneak peek photos within a couple of days, and we were lucky enough to get all of our photos back much faster than thirty days! So happy to work with Mariam and would love to work with her again in the future!"

"Mariam is truly a gem to work with! She made us feel very special during our engagement photo session. You can tell that she genuinely enjoyed capturing the love between my fiance and I as she smiled away behind the camera. I know I can always trust her to deliver my photos with efficiency, great crispy clear quality, and at just the right angles! Mariam Saifan Photography is worth the investment! "

"Mariam's pictures are beautiful and warm, exactly the feeling we wanted to come through in both our engagement and our wedding photos. She was so much fun to work with, professional but also very personal, and she took time to get to know who we were as a couple and what we wanted from our session. I honestly can't imagine having anyone else photograph this part of life for us. We're so happy with the final results and we will definitely be reaching out to Mariam again in the future for family pictures when that day comes! "

"Getting married to my best friend was the best thing I ever did. Having Mariam take our photos was a close second. She's hands down one of the best photographers out there and one of the kindest people you'll ever get to spend a day with."
