Hey you beautiful human! My name is Mari Charlson (she/her) & I'm a 20 year old professional portrait photographer. I am currently based in Kansas City, Missouri, but work with clients all over Missouri and Kansas. Four years ago, I picked up my camera and decided I wanted to do this forever. I have never gone back! I LOVE what I do. Outside of my professional photography career, I am currently studying at UMKC for my bachelor's degree in Health Science.

Being a portrait photographer, I spend most of my time with high school and college graduates, lovely couples, amazing models, & incredible families. I LOVE being a photographer in Kansas City. The people that I get to photograph are some of the best people I have ever met. I hope one day you will be included in this! My goal is, and always has been, to capture your precious moments so that you can cherish them forever.


I highly value the quality of photos at a quality price. A big belief of mine is that capturing life's most precious moments should not be a luxury. It should be something that everyone gets the chance to have and enjoy.


I hope to meet you and shoot with you soon!

Hi i’m Bella, my pronouns are she/her and i’m a local photographer & videographer in the KC area! I’m currently a freshman at the Kansas City Art Institute studying film & photo. Outside of photography I love to dance ( that’s where i met my bff Mari!! ) and i’m the bass guitarist in a local band. My photography style is very moody & full of gold, and i love to bring an untraditional feel to my photos. Last but not least, miss Mari Charlson is my absolute inspiration and I love getting to create magic with her! I'm super excited to meet you if you choose to add an additional second shooter to your photoshoot.
