This Kansas City Portrait Studio is known for being creative yet refined. This combination of styles is one of the things that has made this duo so sought after. From 435 south to all the way up North the famous studio runs the gamut on Photography in Kansas City. It is no surprise that John and Lisa, with their nationally ranked photographs, place in the top 10% worldwide.

Marriages and senior pictures are great examples of this, although many a parent can attest to the importance of taking pictures as a baby grows. They change so much from when they are born to the first month, and then at six months and one year its like they are a completely different kid. That is why parents love baby portraits. They come to this studio because we are amazing baby photographers. The thing is that though it may not seem important, as each of these milestones passes its impossible to recreate them. They are gone and if photographs were not taken to commemorate the occasion, one must rely solely on memory to revisit the experience. For this reason many graduating kids choose to get senior portraits taken. Many seniors like us because we are fun photographers and make them look their best.

Lisa is easy to work with because she knows how to pose seniors to put them at ease, and we dont do cheesy. When it comes to portraits she is one of the great photographers. While there are certain moments in life that bear a little more importance sometimes its crucial to simply photograph a family so that as the kids grow up they remember what it was like back in the day. This is what brides, parents, couples, and families are saying about their beautifully stunning pictures. If you're looking for just any old photographer, the yellow pages are full...

What people are saying about Phoenix Photography!
If you're looking for a relationship with kind, caring, creative people, look no further... John and Lisa provided one of the most beautiful experiences I have ever witnessed. I have officiated for over 25 years and recently had the privilege of officiating my own daughter's where Lisa and John were our photographers. I found them to be, hands down, the best I've ever seen.

Thanks guys for preserving our memories with such style, elegance and panache! My husband and I are extremely happy with our engagement and wedding pictures taken by Phoenix Photography. They are absolutely amazing! Not only is Lisa and John's work phenomenal but they are an amazing team. Their professionalism, attention to detail and excellent customer service sets them apart from any other photographer weve ever met. You can tell they are passionate about what they do and they truly care about their clients. It was so much fun working with this loving couple. Words cant describe how pleased we are with our pictures and we will always and forever recommend them to our friends and family. We have beautiful pictures that will last a lifetime thanks to this extraordinary duo.

To me, the most important service is the photographer. Photographs last a lifetime, so selecting the right photographer to capture my special moments was crucial.Lisa Catera has a very creative way of capturing the beauty of a single moment - we knew she was the one who was going to bring out the best in us! From the start, Lisa was great to work with - very personable and easy going! She has a fun personality and made us feel so comfortable. It was like we had known her for years. She made the moments she captured of us and our bridal party were truly magical - straight from a magazine! I want to thank Lisa and John for making our day wonderful.

My husband and I can't express how much we enjoyed working with Lisa and John Phoenix. They made us feel comfortable and exceeded our expectations! Everything from our engagement pictures to our wedding pictures, they all were stunning! I highly recommend them to all couples looking for professional down to earth people that really care about you, your day, and your pictures! They are the absolute best!After hours upon hours of research, I knew that John and Lisa were the best choice for us. Photography was such a big deal for our day because after its all over, the pictures are the best memories to look back on. From our engagement pictures to our special day the pictures... I have been absolutely blown away by their work, talent, and desire for the best. The first photo I saw literally stopped me dead in my tracks and took my breath away. This team / couple has SERIOUS talent and can take anything they are dealt and make some fiercely beautiful photographs! I would highly recommend them... And to all the brides-to-be out there, you get what you pay for and Lisa and John will give you a lifetime of beautiful memories! Lisa and John did an AMAZING job for my special day. Its every girl's dream to look more beautiful than ever on her day, and they made me feel, and look amazing. I haven't even seen all my pictures yet, but I am head over heels for the ones from my "sneak peek." I would highly recommend their work to any bride to be!

We used Lisa and John, and let me tell you, I wouldn't have had it any other way with anyone else! they were amazing from beginning to end!! they got all the pictures we wanted and kept everyone smiling and stress free!! I haven't even seen all the pictures they took yet, but with the ones I have, I am already more than happy with everything!! They capture everything in the moment, not just the people, but the emotions and scenes around them as well! Absolutely amazing and I would tell anyone I know to use them! J&L are just so great. They are easy to work with and really listen to what you want. Lisa was just cracking all of us girls up as we were taking pictures. They made us feel at ease during the whole process. I didn't feel like I had to give them a ton of direction because they have such a beautiful photographic style. Their work are always so lovely.

A good friend recommended this stellar wedding photography studio to us and we are so very glad she did! From the very start they were amazing to work with. We had seen their pictures online, and knew they did a fantastic job, but after taking engagement pictures we were blown away! Not only because they pictures turned out absolutely beautiful, but because we had so much fun taking them. On our day John and Lisa were fantastic, they did a great job of handling our large group, as well as making sure to capture those special little moments. Lisa does such a wonderful job taking both traditional and non-traditional shots. My recommendation let her have creative freedom in what she shoots and the results will amaze you!

Phoenix Photography is known as the best in the United States. John and Lisa ... I just went through Kayla and Shane's photos! OUTSTANDING!!!! Seriously, very outstanding!!!! You've got some photos in here that I'll want to use in advertising and on the website. I LOVE the ones in the lower level by the murals (I will use one of these as a header on our website in a couple months), and in the front entry. This was an especially photogenic bride ... such a pretty smile and lots of personality! I've saved many favorites.I just went through Ashley and Patrick's pictures, and have to tell you that you did a particularly OUTSTANDING job with this wedding!

More Testimonials!
Phoenix Photography did an awesome job for our wedding day! We couldn't have been more pleased to have such a great couple documenting our big day! You can check them out on facebook. I have to say that it is a good thing I wasn't asked to write this "short" testimonial the day after the wedding-otherwise I would have gone on and on, page after page after page, gushing the whole time about our wonderful experience with John and Lisa. It wasn't until the day of my wedding that I realized how important the selection of a photographer really is, especially in our case. I say that because our wedding was at noon, the reception wasn't until 6:00pm, and we spent almost all the time in between with John and Lisa. Let me tell you, if you aren't getting along with your photographer, that can really ruin your special day. Lucky for us, Brad and I got along famously with John and Lisa, and I don't think we could have had a better time. Even though it was the beginning of July and most of our pictures were taken outside and the groom was sweating and my dress kept sticking to my legs because it was so hot, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. In fact, there have been several times since that I wish I could! And it's only been three weeks!

John and Lisa were professional, personable, efficient, fun and open to our suggestions for poses. I really felt like they wanted to get the best pictures they could for us, so we would truly love our pictures and always be able to look back on that day with happy memories, as opposed to just getting the shot and rushing you on to the next pose. You would think after shooting so many weddings it would be "just another job" to them, but I never got that feeling, and it really seemed like they were enjoying themselves, too. I love how quick we were able to get our pictures, and can't begin to tell you how many times I have looked at them in the short week I have had the proof book. Just from looking at the pictures (even people who weren't at the wedding), I have had numerous people tell me "You had great photographer," like I didn't already know that! I have recommended John & Lisa to everyone who asks anything about my wedding. They helped make our day amazing-better than I had hoped for- and I can't wait for our one year engagement shots!
Sincerely, Kimberly and Brad Kliethermes.

We love our wedding photos and working with John and Lisa was great! They listened to what we wanted and definitely delivered! After our honeymoon, we were totally reliving our day through the story that the photos told! Thank You for capturing every detail of our special day! Thanks!
Derrick and Brooke Rieke.
