Recent Client Testimonials

If you are wondering more about the EEP experience and are not familiar with anyone personally that I have worked with, I am happy to provide the next best thing by including submitted testimonials from recent clients! 

“Every little girl dreams of her wedding day and what will make it special.  My biggest hope was to capture the day so that we could reflect on the happiest day of our life.  When we found Tonya she did more than just that, she captured our emotion, you could see the love flowing through the photos.  We can’t express enough how talented this young woman is, she does her dream job and her passion shines through her work!  We loved how she worked so freely, throughout the wedding, during our ceremony, she isn’t a stop and pose for me kind of photographer, instead she captures those genuine moments of laughter and happiness.  We are beyond blessed to have found such and incredibly talented photographer who went above and beyond delivering, we are forever thankful and grateful we chose her and she chose to work with us! We appreciated your patience, fun sense of humor (she made my quiet hubby so comfortable and laugh), and most importantly your skill and passion to be able to capture the feelings and emotions on our big day!! WE can't thank you enough for all that you have done!! Thank you Tonya!!”  --Kevin + Lydia Webster


“Tonya was our saving grace with our engagement session! Not to mention she helped with the timing of my whole wedding day, just to make sure our wedding photos were the best! We originally booked someone that was “cheaper” and the quality was unprintable. Tonya gave us quality photos, and memories that we will hold with us forever!!! We can’t wait for our wedding day! Always remember, you get what you pay for ” –Shelby Cannon


“My husband Mike and I are so happy we chose Tonya to capture our engagement photos and wedding day! I look back at the pictures and feel the emotion behind them all over again! Tonya photographed our wedding day with the utmost professionalism while maintaining a fun and laid back atmosphere. She made sure we both were comfortable and has the most positive attitude. I consider her my friend and would recommend Expressions Exposed Photography to anyone!” –Stevanee Saporito


“When my now husband and I were engaged, it was a no-brainer who we wanted to be our photographer. After speaking with the wedding venue, we had two date options, and I immediately reached out to Tonya to confirm her availability. During our engagement session, she was excellent. Our dog tagged along for a few photos, and Tonya was very patient in getting the money shot! The rest of our engagement session was great. The photos turned out beautiful and edits were made quickly. Before our wedding, Tonya and I drove around to scout out locations near our venue. During our wedding, she was on time and ready to roll for the full day ahead. She did an excellent job coordinating all photos from large group photos to individual photos to photos of my husband and I. Again, she was quick to edit and send us our photos, which was awesome! The photos turned out greater than we could imagine! Many people have cameras today, but it is so important to have an experienced photographer like Tonya to capture those special memories and cherish for a lifetime! Thanks, Tonya!” –Danielle Driskill


“When Bobby and I got engaged and started wedding planning Tonya immediately came to mind. She was the photographer of a wedding I was in a few years ago and she was so fun and easy to work with. I could not be happier that she agreed to work with us, even though we no longer lived in Southeast Kansas and our wedding was in Kansas City. We did our engagement photos with her months before the wedding, which turned out great. She made the planning process a breeze and had such a good feel for how long things would realistically take. The day of the wedding she went above and beyond the duties of a photographer, while also keeping everything on schedule. We got our photographs quickly after the wedding and they were so amazing. After everything was finished she hand delivered the USB that contained all of our pictures and we will treasure it for years to come.” –Jennifer Frisbee


“When searching for a photographer for our fall wedding, I stumbled upon Expressions Exposed Photography’s Facebook page. I instantly knew that the style of the photographer matched ours perfectly. Tonya was so friendly and extremely fun to work with! We are in love with the pictures! We have photos on display in our home from the engagement all the way through to anniversary pictures. We will use her over and over again, and have her capture more very special moments for our family!” -Zach + Alisha Foster


“I wanted something different for my daughter Lauren’s senior pictures, something that stood out. I looked as far as Kansas City but when I found EEP... I stopped in my tracks! I had found exactly what I was looking for. Tonya is an artist!!!...Her use of light, color and dynamic lines!!! Seriously, I am amazed at how many times I look at her work and I’m more in awe than I was the last time! I was so blown away by the pictures that she took of my daughter that she took my sons two years later and will soon be taking my daughter’s wedding photos. There isn’t anyone else that I would want with us on that special day! She has surpassed everything we thought we wanted in a photographer... you couldn’t ask for a better one!” –Brandy Fields


“I was very fortunate to use Tonya for my daughter’s senior pictures. They turned out amazing, making it difficult to choose the one’s to keep. Tonya had great ideas and has obviously spent time looking for beautiful and original places for the settings. She also was patient with the sun allowing it time to start setting to get the perfect lighting she had in mind. Truly talented! Paying attention to every detail. And, the icing on the cake, the way she packages the finished product, so original. Something that isn’t necessary but makes each order very special and lets you know she appreciates your business. Will definitely use her again!” –Kristy Tippie


“I was so excited to have been chosen to be a senior model for Expressions Exposed. I had a few unique ideas for my senior photos and Tonya made each of them possible and captured them perfectly! From the football field and cow pasture in my hometown to a mural of 2pac in Kansas City, Tonya created beautiful photos that my family and I will cherish for a lifetime.” -Randa Lewis


“If you want to love and cherish your wedding photography for years and years to come - BOOK TONYA!! I normally find photos awkward and stiff but Tonya’s personality and charm makes her so easy to work with! It just felt natural! She has a phenomenal eye for detail and an obvious love for her art! She genuinely cares about her clients and spends time making your photos unique! I recommend Tonya to everyone I meet and you will too!” –Victoria Lowman


“I have had the privilege of working with Tonya since I was 16 years old. In the past 8 years we’ve done several shoots ranging from high school dance photos, headshot photos for my portfolio, college graduation photos, couple photos, and our most recent fitness shoot. Tonya has become much more than my photographer, she’s became a part of my family. She’s incredible at her job, super easy to work with, and always very professional. She never makes you feel uncomfortable or out of place. Photography isn’t just a job for her, it’s a passion and that’s shown through her work. I’d definitely recommend her for any of your photos need!” –Jacey Moreland


“Tonya is not only an amazing photographer, but person as well. She took the time to explain to my senior how awkward the positions may feel or seem, but in the end those positions would make great photos. When we received the proofs, I was blown away by the special moments she captured during our senior photo session. She has an eye for art and creating stunning photos! I would highly recommend her for any special memory you want to cherish.” –Noel Shinkle


"We were lucky enough to have Tonya shoot our engagement and wedding photos! Tonya has great attention to detail and is very creative with her work. She has an eye for beauty and captured everything perfectly! Tonya definitely exceeded my husband's and I's expectations! I have had a numerous amount of friends and family want more information on Tonya, because they wanted to use her as well! Tonya made us feel comfortable but also was very professional! I knew everything I wanted pictures of would be done and plus many more!! I would refer Tonya to anyone because she is talented and not only does she capture a outstanding photo she helps create and capture remarkable memories!" -Railyn Fleming


"After using Expressions Exposed for our engagement pictures we knew we had made the right choice for our wedding photographer. We could not believe our eyes when we first saw our engagement pictures! Tonya is extremely talented and has an eye for detail, which is very important when choosing a photographer! Then came our wedding day, Tonya was so helpful and calming throughout the picture taking process. Our wedding pictures are AMAZING. We have gotten so many compliments and have heard numerous times "Tonya does such a good job!" We could not agree more! Expressions Exposed has truly captured some of our most precious memories that we will be able to cherish forever!" -Chelsea White


"We were so blessed to have Tonya do our engagement photos and our wedding. We don't exactly enjoy having our pictures taken, and Tonya made it so comfortable and fun. Everything was so natural and not "posey". I think the photos of the actual ceremony are often overlooked and ours were phenomenal. Tonya made changes on the fly when things didn't go as planned and was so flexible and easy to work with. It is hard to put into words how happy we were with the finished product. It is hard to believe someone could so truly capture such a special day in photos, but Tonya went above and beyond. I would recommend her to anyone!" -Whitney Snyder


"Tonya took our engagement and wedding photos. She was great to work with; she immediately made us feel comfortable, had a lot of creative ideas, took the initiative to spot out locations close to our wedding site, and talked/met with us numerous times prior to actually taking our photos. I felt like she took the time to get to know us and our interests so that she could personlize our photos to our taste. Our pictures were edited and given back to us really quickly, and the quality was amazing. She truly captured the raw emotion of our big day and I couldn't be happier with the results."  -Alexa Driskill


"Tonya did a wonderful job with our wedding session. She took control and told us exactly what she needed us to do to make our pictures perfect. We met with her before the wedding to discuss what we wanted in the pictures and she did a wonderful job making our wishes into reality. We have worked with Tonya on previous occasions and she has always gone above and beyond in all of our sessions. Tonya does amazing work and we would recommend her to anyone!" -Jessica Tormey


"My name is Autumn Secrest, and I was a Senior Rep for the Class of 2014. Tonya did an excellent job incorporating my personality, hobbies, and style into my pictures. She was easy to work with, and she knew exactly how to angle shots and include any props I wanted to use. I enjoyed representing Expressions Exposed Photography and would highly recommend it to any senior who is looking for natural outdoor photos. There was not a picture she took that I did not love! I also had her take prom and homecoming pictures because she does such a great job!" -Autumn Secrest


"Expressions Exposed is amazing and Tonya Tomory is an amazing photographer. She did my daughter Dakota McCullough's senior pictures and I couldn't have asked for a better photographer.

Great job Expressions Exposed you really out did yourself this time!" -Kim McCullough

We highly recommend Tonya to anyone seeking a dedicated photographer that will create beautiful photos and capture memories that will last a lifetime." -Aireanne Horsch

"Tonya was a great photographer for our wedding. She was able to be professional yet maintained an easygoing nature. Having a photographer who is relatable was invaluable on a very important day. Tonya was fun but still got the job done. Her photos are amazing. I'll be proud to hang them on my walls for years to come." -Jennifer Nixon


"There are not enough words to write that will express how much we love Expressions Exposed Photography. My husband and I suffered a tremendous loss of our child in 2011. Tonya was able to incorporate the memories we had of him into our engagement pictures, wedding, and our most recent family pictures. She found sentimental ideas to keep our child's memory alive while involving our new blessing who arrived recently. Our family cannot thank her enough for being there along our journey, and we look forward to taking many more pictures with Expressions Exposed Photography. Tonya has captured the most precious moments in our life, and is not only the best photographer but now a great friend!" -Megan McKellips
