Crystal and Ally showed up for their mother daughter shoot at Loose Park in the most adorable dresses that helped their photos look so elegant! Crystal told me she read my blog post with 10 tips for planning family photo outfits and that it really helped - hurray!!
I couldn’t believe it when Chloe with Deeper Than Money reached out to schedule a brand shoot! Not only is she gorgeous, talented, and intelligent, but I ADORE sessions like this and totally love the passion and purpose she has for her business.
Oh my goodness… I can’t believe I was lucky enough to get to do this sweet family session. Shaun and Mandi had these ADORABLE twins two months ago and they are so joyful and sweet with them! Shaun found me through a coworker of his that did a Spring mini session with me, but somehow he knows my older sister and her friend group from Arkansas too! Such a small world!
This Kansas City wedding was extra special for me to get to capture because Andra and Brent both went to seminary with my husband! These two are so kind and fun-loving; it was so wonderful to get to participate in this celebration of their love!
Loved this early summer wedding at the Beck Event Space in Harrisonville, Kansas!! I’ve been friends with Julie for a couple years now and let me tell you… she is a GEM. Her kind demeanor and adventurous spirit are inspiring and I feel like we understand each other so well as fellow Enneagram 7s! I knew it would take someone special to win her heart and I couldn’t be happier that she found Alix - who is equally as kind and caring!
This was such a stunning wedding! The girls got ready at the Grand Hall at Power & Light (also where Brendan proposed) and the guys got ready at the Hilton President. We took some photos at the Liberty Memorial overlooking the Kansas City skyline before heading to Lees Summit for their ceremony and reception at the Libby Lane Event Center.
The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Country Club Plaza, and the Power & Light District (downtown) were the perfect backdrops for this quintessentially Kansas City engagement session. Lauren and Phillip love this city so much it was only fitting that we used some of the classics to show off their love for each other! So thankful for another sunny evening when the forecast said rain.
All week it said it would rain all day on Sunday and then BOOM, not a drop all day! I was so thankful since this wedding was completely outdoors at the Rus-T Barn venue in Bonner Springs, Kansas (with a big, beautiful tent for the reception). Zach and Bailey met in college. He had gone for football and she played volleyball. They met early on in the fall, began dating by Thanksgiving, and the rest is history!
The Jackson family wanted some photos while Krist and Andrew were in town from California where they currently live, which meant we only had a small number of times that would work. Of course it poured on the night we finally chose, but thankfully we got downtown JUST BARELY in time to shoot for almost 30 minutes before the rain started! It was the most rushed shoot I’ve done, but so much fun with these wonderful folks as always.
In the middle of one of the rainiest seasons I’ve experienced in my 4 years in Kansas City, the sun came out on the day of this session as if solely to celebrate Molly and Shawn’s engagement!! I adore shooting on Sunday evenings because it is always so quiet in the city and this day was no exception. It was like we had the whole Crossroads to ourselves so we used the ivy walls and a bunch of other nooks within walking distance before switching outfits and utilizing the outside of the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts as the sun got a little lower in the sky!
