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 wife Emily, natural light, human interaction, travel, minimalism, athletics, coffee, local makers & entrepreneurs, the desert, fog, bonfires and simple living.


This is us

Emily and I recently got married on the Oregon Coast. We had an intimate ceremony with just our immediate families in attendance. We wouldn’t change a darn thing about our simple, emotional, laid-back wedding day. Now we live in a historic loft in the heart of downtown Kansas City & absolutely love this place we call home.



Videographer add on

Emily is a super talented videographer. We offer discounted collections for weddings and elopements when you book both of us. We've shot countless weddings side by side and we love working together to document the stories of couples truly in love, just like us.
