A chilly Spring engagement + family photo session at Union Station in Kansas City. Ryan and Jamie are getting married this June and I will have the pleasure of capturing it for them! Ryan has two wonderful kids (featured here) and it was so fun to add them in to their engagement session... how special!
A classy Spring brunch wedding at The Simpson House venue in the heart of Kansas City, Missouri. White walls, chandeliers and wedding cake donuts... yes please. These two ladies are some of the most amazing people I know... so thankful I had the opportunity to play a small part in their story!
A chilly, Spring wedding at my very own church in Olathe, Kansas! Eric & Amber tied the knot while surrounded by their closest friends and family members and then flew off to Thailand for their honeymoon!
A charming Downtown Kansas City/Power & Light District engagement session with a stop over at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts! Brian and Bla will tie the knot at Town Square Paola this October!
I had never photographed a double couple's session like this, but since the two couples are such good friends and I was only in OKC for a very short weekend trip, it worked out perfectly! Nicolas and Jennie were so kind as to let me help them plan what they wore and dang... they pulled off such an elegant look! Guys are typically hesitant to wear something besides jeans, but this is proof that even comfortable colored pants with a button up shirt can really make an impact on the overall images. Not to mention how dapper... dare I say FLY Nicolas looked in his gray suit!! Combined with Jennie's little black dress, it was the perfect pair for ending our session with a bang on the rooftop at sunset.
It's been 5 years since I shot Blake and Mandy's beautiful Oklahoma City wedding, and 5.5 since I shot their engagement photos. We've all come a long way since then, but I'm so thankful that we are still close friends! I had the wonderful opportunity to make a quick weekend trip to OKC to see some old college friends last week and can't believe we got to make this anniversary session happen while I was there! You won't want to miss this one... especially the downtown rooftop shots - they are my favorites!
I learned two things yesterday at this maternity photo session in Downtown Kansas City. 1) Brittany looks better pregnant with twins than I do without being pregnant at all. 2) When it comes to photo locations, you never know unless you ask!
Greg proposed to Kari under the mistletoe at Union Station KC's New Year's Eve party... you can't get much more romantic than that!! At the very moment that was happening, I was photographing a beautiful wedding in Paola, KS, but little did I know that these two would soon contact me and we would get to shoot their engagement session right there in Union Station to celebrate as it is now such a special place for them!
Let's talk about STYLE, shall we?! Risa and Aaron kindly let me help them select their outfits in order to create elegant images that complemented the dazzling aesthetic of the city lights and I'm so in love with the results :) Here's to encouraging more of my clients to do their sessions in the city and use the excuse to dress up!!
*TIP - nuetral and pastel colors look the best in photos!
After finding my work online, Austin called me last week to see if I could take some last-minute photos for him and his fiance for use in announcing their engagement to their friends! They got engaged in Kansas City on Wednesday, we did their session on Saturday and I made sure to return their edited images on Sunday so they didn't have to wait any longer to share the big news!
