A lovely photo isn’t just about technical detail: it’s about sentiment and genuine human connection. It’s about the face he makes when he sees you walking down the aisle, the experience of celebrating a new life together, and the love that has motivated it all.

As a classically trained photographer, I have the knowledge, artistic intuition, and technical skill to capture the experience of your big day. I am blessed to make my living sharing such treasured moments and I look forward to working with you to preserve them for years to come.

First and foremost, Rita is not only mega talented, artistic, and creative, but she is an incredible person to boot!! When we were first researching wedding photographers, I met with Rita and within about 10 minutes of meeting her she had me laughing and I felt completely at ease and comfortable, like we had been friends for years. I left that meeting knowing she was going to be our wedding photographer. She shot our engagement pictures and by the time our wedding came around, I felt like I had gained a great friend. Like most brides, I was overwhelmed with almost every emotion imaginable on our wedding day, but having Rita there really helped me because I trusted her so much. She probably didn’t even realize she was doing that for me, but she was! When we got our wedding photographs back, my husband Ryan and I sat down to look through them together. As we looked through them I was both crying and laughing because she captured so many great moments, moments that might have been fleeting but she captured them through her lens and now we have them forever! That has to be one of the surest signs of an amazing photographer, when you can experience so many emotions while looking at their photos! We were both blown away, our photos are absolutely BEAUTIFUL! What a gift it is to be able to do this for people, to capture these moments on one of the biggest days of your life. Also, as her second shooter, Rita brought Emily Lodigensky who is a rock star in her own right! We were SO fortunate to have two AMAZING photographers shoot our wedding day! Every single person who saw our sneak peak photos has been blown away by how gorgeous they are! I have heard from so many people asking if I have our photographs back because they can’t wait to see them! If you are looking for a wedding photographer, look no further. Rita will go above and beyond for you! We will cherish these pictures forever and we are so grateful to her for everything she did for us! THANK YOU so much Rita!!

We just got married this past weekend and absolutely loved having Rita take care of our photography. Her personality is ideal for her job - she's incredibly enthusiastic, creative, open, and so fun. She was totally open to our preferences, regardless of what is "normal" for wedding photos. There are so many photos that we are excited to show off and to help us remember our weekend. Jen, who worked with Rita for us, was also great. Thanks so much!

I LOVE RITA CLARK PHOTOGRAPHY! If you need a photographer CALL RITA! I contacted Rita in December 2014 because we needed a photographer for our wedding. She drove an hour the day before Christmas Eve to meet my fiancée and me, since that is when we were in town. She was wonderful, cheery, and super nice. She answered all of our questions and we facetimed with Jen who would be photographing our wedding. Rita was great throughout the planning process, she answered all of my questions quickly and the details form we filled out before the wedding was perfect. RITA IS AWESOME!!!!

On our wedding day, Jen showed up early and was FANTASTIC!!! WE LOVE JEN!!!! She is super, super awesome! She took pictures of the flowers, the rings, shoes, the venue. I love her detail oriented shots, they are amazing. Then she took pictures of the ceremony, then we took family pictures (I have a huge family and we had about an hour and 10 minutes and she was a pro at getting us through that). Then she took pictures at dinner and then of bowling instead of dancing after dinner. JEN IS AMAZING!!!! I LOVE THE PICTURES! She took great shots and captured so many fun and wonderful events of the day.
Less than 48 hours after the wedding Jen and Rita had our Sneak Peek posted and the pictures were more than I had hoped for. They were super amazing. Then that night Rita was still posting pictures that they liked to my Facebook. Then less than 84 hours after the wedding, Rita sent the link to our full digital gallery. THE PHOTOS ARE OUTSTANDING!!!! I can't wait to send them to friends and family and hang them all over the house.

IF YOU NEED A PHOTOGRAPHER, CONTACT RITA AND JEN!!!! THEY ROCK!!! They are absolutely the best. I am not very photogenic and I look amazing (as does my family, friends and groom) in every picture. They are pros and they will do an amazing job!!!! Jen and Rita, Thank you both so much for capturing our day and making it look amazing!

Rita did an AMAZING job photographing our wedding!! From the very first time Jason and I met with her and looked at her work, we knew we wouldn't be disappointed. She is incredibly talented and has such a sweet, fun personality! In our first meeting, Rita helped us plan out a timeline and brought up things that we hadn't even considered yet. The day of the wedding, Rita was so helpful and easy to work with. I hadn't spent any time considering where we wanted the pictures taken and didn't really have a plan when she arrived, but she jumped right in with suggestions and had much better ideas than I would have come up with. Our pictures turned out phenomenal and she captured all of the perfect moments. Thank you so much Rita - you really helped make our wedding day perfect!

After our initial meeting with Rita, we knew that we had found the person we wanted to capture our special day. She was light hearted and witty, professional and organized, but most of all, extremely passionate about her work, which is evident in the quality of the pictures she creates. We were lucky enough to have both Rita and Jen to document our wedding. They have the ability to put you completely at ease and have a way of making you feel like you’ve known them forever. They were our wedding heroes! I can say that the wedding day went so much smoother just by having them there. They were efficient in getting photos taken without ever making us feel rushed. When we first met we hired a photographer, but we ended up with lifelong friends. Ashley and I are overwhelmed with gratitude and appreciation for all of the hard work, love and pure positive intention that went into getting the meaningful “magical” shots that we get to keep for the rest of our lives. The immense amount of love and laughter that was present at our wedding can now be documented forever because of these two incredible photographers. The amount of compliments that we received from friends and family regarding our photographers and our pictures has been overwhelming. Rita and Jen, without a doubt, will continue to be our photographers as we continue to build a family. They are simply the best. Period.

We could go on and on about how pleased we were to work with Rita throughout our wedding planning experience. Rita would check in to see how the wedding planning process was going, she cares about her clients & wants this special occasion to be the best it can be! She was very flexible the day of and everything a bride needs in a photographer. Our picture timeline changed the day of and Rita was super flexible in making it all work! Our friends and family commented on her work immediately & kept telling us how lucky we were to find Rita! Not only is Rita's work incredible, she is such a FUN person. Our friends and family love to have fun & Rita did such an awesome job capturing the best moments at the reception. These special moments were what we wanted to be captured so we can forever remember that day, and Rita went above and beyond.

I am so overwhelmed with how magical our wedding photos turned out. Never could I have imagined more beautiful pictures. Rita is talented and professional. Not only is Rita incredible at her craft, she may as well been one of my bridesmaids. The day of my wedding, this girl helped me with the "girl" things that were definitely not in our contract! All you brides know what I'm talking about:)

Rita is enthusiastic, yet has a sense of calm about her, which is how she led me through my wedding day. I wasn't the most organized, I had a lot on my mind, and I was completely scatter-brained and she took care of me. My fiance, family and I are so appreciative of the heart she put into our day in May. Her spirit, while she captures the perfect moment, is contagious. She has become a great friend of mine and I am forever grateful. You'll want her on your wedding day. Trust me. Thank you, Rita!

My husband and I used Rita Clark Photography for our wedding and were in awe of Rita's amazing, and I mean uniquely amazing photographs. She and her co-photographer, Jen, captured every moment of our day so wonderfully. Their attention to detail, artistry, and enormous talent is unparalleled. I can't say enough good things about Rita and her incredible talent. She was such a pleasure to work with on our wedding day. She not only took beautiful pictures the day of, but she provided an immense amount of support to myself and my husband during the wedding day. Her calming presence and hard work made a huge difference in how our wedding day came together. We couldn't have asked for more and are so grateful that we found her. We live in Las Vegas and have already decided that we will travel back to Kansas City to have Rita photograph our family in the future. -Meredith

Rita Clark has gone above and beyond in her photographic portrayal of our Engagement Photos and Wedding Day. I could not be any happier with my choice in trusting Rita and her photographers with our big day! Rita is not only an outstanding individual and artist; but she adores photographing weddings and capturing wedding bliss. She loves love, and it truly shines through her bright personality and artistic eye. I knew from the moment I became engaged that Rita was the photographer of choice because of the way she captures each moment. Not only is she remarkable in her craft, but she has a lovely and daring personality that brings out the smiles and laughter of her subjects even more. Every wedding day does not following the agenda perfectly and we had some schedule mishapps (who doesn't?). Rita took them all in stride and was flexible and laid back. She knew exactly what to expect and was able to lend a hand or comforting words when necessary. Our Wedding photos completely exceeded my expectations and they captured every detail perfectly - I am blown away! I am looking forward in using Rita in the years to come as my husband and I decide to add more photos to our collection and grow our little family.
