Believe it or not, this wedding was my first time second shooting for another photographer! I was free on the Saturday that she needed assistance and thought it would be a fun opportunity to focus on more candid shots and side angles than usual since I didn't have the responsibility of all the group photos. Unfortunately, it rained harder than I have EVER experienced on a wedding day, much less Any day... but the bride and groom were incredibly sweet about it and their main photographer, Brooke at Josie Pix handled it like a champ!! The couple kept saying that they actually love thunderstorms so it would be a special memory for them. Brooke stayed calm and guided Dana and Levi through the day the best she could, getting some gorgeous images along the way. The silver lining was the incredible sunset that occurred because of all the rain clouds after the showers had passed.
Venue: Alldredge Orchards | Platte City, Missouri

Ryan & Jamie celebrated their union on a hot, June day in North Kansas City. The Courtyard at Briarcliff where the got ready was the perfect spot for their first look and bridal party photos in order to escape the 97 degree heat just outside the doors. Trezo Mare Restaurant's patio space was the backdrop for their ceremony and reception and thankfully some shade was provided by the building next door.
A sunny, Missouri wedding at the Weston Red Barn Farm with pastel colors, succulents, and the goofiest of wedding parties. For their wedding day, Holly and Chris envisioned a celebration! Having food, friends, family and dancing is the best combination... and especially since it was for the purpose of them uniting together! Holly wanted it to be special for the two of them and to feel every moment, the grass under her toes (because yes, she got married barefoot because she is awesome like that), watching Chris' facial expressions, laughing and smiling through their first dance because that's what he does to her, dancing with her best friend, and stuffing her face with cupcakes. In retrospect, I'd say her hopes and dreams for the day definitely came true ;)
