We’re Bek and Addison Sauvan, a married Kansas City wedding photography duo with a heart for emotion, connection, and all things non-traditional. We met when we were eleven and twelve, and married seven years later on a hot summer day under a sycamore tree in 2011. We photographed our first wedding just two months after our own and quickly realized it’s what we were made to do!
We’ve had the opportunity to travel all over for the last several years photographing weddings and elopements, but love getting to come home to our little city of Lawrence, Kansas. Bek’s happy place is in the woods. She loves Johnny Cash, dry humor, and is super close with her big, loud family. Addison spends every second of his free time drumming and playing guitar. He’s overly enthusiastic, obsessed with street tacos, and wouldn’t dare ever refuse an offer of chips and salsa. Together, we drink an inappropriate amount of coffee and live for road trips. Last, and most important in our lives, is our love for Jesus. His grace is our constant source of inspiration.
Wedding days are unique in that they’re super-charged with so much emotion, filled with unplanned and in-between moments…the raw and real stuff. Those are the things we look for as photographers. Because of that, we make it our goal to approach each day with fresh eyes and to create something meaningful and heartfelt for each of our brides and grooms. Ultimately, we love what we do so much simply because we love people. It’s a privilege to get to tell their stories and celebrate the things that bring them joy.
Nothing makes us happier than connecting with folks who care as much about photos as we do. If that’s you, say hello – we’d love to hear from you! Head on over to our contact page and tell us a little (or a lot…bring on the details!) about yourselves.
