We believe in experiencing life moment by moment. In celebrating everything that life has to offer, and taking it all in. Living in the moment. All of these moments become the memories that create your life story and family legacy. They only happen once, and because they're so precious they can't be recreated. That's why what we do is so important.
We specialize in preserving life's moments; your memories that create your legacy and heritage. Not just in a digital format that will change and pass us by, but in bespoke, exceptional heirloom albums and fine art pieces that will bring your moments back to life, one at a time for generations to come. We pride ourselves on our ability to create modern, artistic, dramatic imagery that captures the color and emotion of your life. Our signature style utilizes a unique blend of light and color, which helps transform a seemingly simple moment into a gorgeous, one-of-a-kind, work of art.
We're not just wedding photographers, we are memory keepers and heirloom creators, and we have the best job in the world. Witnessing our couples celebrate the beginning of their lives together is what we were born to do. From our first meeting to the selection and delivery of your custom images and art, our goal is to provide you with a photography experience like no other, creating new moments and memories as we go. For this reason, we only accept a very limited number of photography commissions each year. From start to finish, we work exclusively with each and every client, which ensures that we have every aspect and detail of your wedding or session covered.
Rivas Photography is a Kansas City-based fine art photography studio that specializes in weddings and engagements, and corporate events. While we are located in Kansas City, we frequently and happily travel across the nation and internationally to make photographic visions come true.

Ideal. Professional. Personal.
My wife and I had a wonderful experience going from our initial meeting to the big day! Kyle & Melissa are incredibly attentive and focused on what's important - capturing the candid photo. They asked a number of questions about our preferences and were very visible throughout the day without being overbearing.Sent on 10/18/2018
Some of our biggest concerns were around Family photos & weather (who doesn't worry about this on their big day?). But fortunately both weather and Family prevailed and we caught some amazing photos. We never had a concern about professionalism or punctuality with this team. We could count on them to direct us to the best locations, angles, etc.
One of our most memorable photos / moments was a spur-of-the-moment idea from Kyle immediately following our vows. He caught a great shot of us leaning against a classic car as the storm rolled in.
We highly recommend this team - photos help re-create the special day & our album brings it to life whenever we walk our friends and family through it.

Amazing Wedding Photographers
When starting the process of wedding planning, my mother told me that finding our Wedding Photographer would be the most important decision that we would make. The photos that would be captured on our wedding day would be cherished for the rest of your lives, and be something we would hand down to our children. She explained to me that it was important to find a photographer that I felt comfortable with and who would take pride in their work.Sent on 10/18/2018
Choosing Rivas Photography, was the best decision that we could have made. Kyle and Melissa were organized, professional, attentive and captured the most breathtaking photos that will be cherished for the rest of our lives. Not only that, but we felt as if we had known them for years. They made us feel comfortable and confident at each location on our wedding day. One of my favorite memories of working with Rivas, was when we were dodging a big rain storm. They had a plan, multiple locations, and we were able to get every shot that we wanted prior to the rain. Something that could have been very stressful, was dealt with humor and confidence. I never had a doubt in mind that we wouldn’t be able to capture great photos on our special day.
After being in other weddings and seeing other photographers work, my husband and I are constantly reminded with how blessed we were to have found Rivas. They truly will be photographers that we refer to family and friends, as well as use in the future for any photography needs. I truly can not say enough kind words about this company or this amazing duo!

Simply the best!
Being a business owner that is a perfectionist who works in digital marketing, I had very high expectations of who my wife and I would hire for our wedding photographers. They needed to be responsive, organized, creative and take a lot of pride in the material they produce. Let me just say, we found the perfect photographers. Working with Rivas exceeded all my expectations and then some! They had an artistic view when capturing our wedding, making our photos unique and like none other than I had ever seen. Both Kyle and Melissa were amazing. They quickly became more than our photographers and felt more like lifelong friends who were helping us on our wedding day.Sent on 10/26/2018
