About TJ Stansbury

I'm a traveling wedding & elopement photographer from Kansas City. My roots are in the midwest but I'm often on the move. I strive to photograph those who are madly in love. The non-traditional. Adventurous. Simple at heart. Your story is so worth capturing and being told. I love what I do because I get to document connection and creation all over the world. Small moments, big ones, it doesn't matter to me. I get to be there for all of it and I think that's pretty dang cool. My mission is to make timeless, emotion-filled, storytelling images all for glory of Jesus.


My inspiration stems from the Gospel of Jesus, my beautiful fiancé Emily, natural light, human interaction, travel, minimalism, athletics, coffee, local makers & entrepreneurs, the desert, fog, bonfires and simple living.



Video add-on

Emily and I offer discounted collections for weddings and elopements booked together. We've shot countless weddings side by side and we love working together to document the stories of couples madly in love, just like us.
