About Rivas Photography

About Rivas Photography

A Kansas City Photography Studio


As photographers, we believe in preserving single moments in time. Moments that become memories, and are used to tell stories. Stories about family legacy, man and wife marrying. Stories of artists and entrepreneurs. Of life’s greatest moments and hardest falls. Humanity’s happiest and most tragic moments. Stories of growing companies and changing communities.

We are visual record keepers and our cameras are our tools. We have created moments that have gone on to win awards, been used to create marketing material, and to draw attention to worthy causes. While we give each and every project the same attention to detail and energy, no two have ever been the same. This results in completely unique and custom imagery for each and every client. From corporate events, to artist headshots, to glamorous weddings. Preserving your life’s moments is our life’s work, and we are so looking forward to sharing it with you.


About Kyle

Kansas City Photography | kyle-rivas-photographer I, Kyle am our primary photographer and the Rivas behind Rivas Photography.  I’m constantly coming up with new ideas and locations for our client sessions, and love creating unique, dramatic images that become works of art for your home and family. Growing up there are never many photos of my family around our house. This was always strange to me. Especially since both of my siblings were interested in photography and my mom took photos all the time. Instead, we’ve got boxes and boxes of film strips that nothing has ever come of. Ultimately I think this is what has urged me to continue to create unique imagery for all of our clients. And, to make sure that you’re not just taking digital images home with you, but something to be cherished for a lifetime.




About Melissa

Kansas City Photography | melissa-rivas-photographerI, (Melissa) am the woman behind the scenes of Rivas Photography. An established and experienced photographer in my own right, I am Kyle’s right-hand woman and second photographer for all of our weddings. While Kyle is setting up and creating big, beautiful portraits for you, I’m catching all of your sweet, candid moments. I’ll help you take care of everything from what to wear for your engagement session to finding the best vendors in the industry that can help make your wedding day vision come true. After your wedding I can’t wait to help you select images to become custom works of art for your home, design your wedding album, and bring it to life for you. My very favorite thing in the world? Delivering finished artwork and albums and watching you relive your wedding day as you unwrap and look through them.
