After what seems like a winter that won’t end (ok, I know it’s still February, but I’m dying for summer!!) the challenge for this engagement session was to make sure the photos would coordinate well with a tropic beach wedding yet to come. Brooke and Kaulin are planning a destination wedding on the beach and plan to use their engagement photos in their invites so we wanted to make sure the images will entice their guests to join them for a warm summery wedding, even though their photos were shot on a cool, winter day!
Happy Sunday – happy long weekend!
When I was considering which 2017 to share here on the blog next, I was thinking about how I wanted to showcase one of my favorite wedding venues, The Bride and The Bauer. I usually shoot a few weddings per year there and will soon be sharing another wedding from last June but today I’m so happy to show off what a gorgeous wedding Cori and Adam hosted there last April.
The Bauer has so many fantastic nooks and crannies that are just a photographer’s dream. From the lovely bride’s room and the groom’s “den”, the huge loft sized windows surrounding the main event space and the textured walls….I love utilizing every space they have to offer.
Cori and Adam brought in the most amazing details and were surrounded with joy and love all day. Just look at those amazing bouquets!
I’m so happy to be sharing this couple today because as I looked back thru all of their sessions and their wedding it brought back so many wonderful memories and joy. Kayla is truly one of the nicest people you would ever meet and Brock is so sweet and fun to be around. I’m so lucky that only a few years after their wedding their little one came along meaning I get to see them more often.
Today I’m featuring Maggie and Mason’s wedding from last July because there were so many parts and details from that day that I just love.
Maggie looked absolutely stunning that day and don’t you just adore the paper flower bouquets carried by the bridemaids? A special moment that I’ve never before seen at a wedding was when the DJ (Nick McCabe with Icon Event Group) cleared the dance floor and invited all of the guests outside to prepare for the big exit. Once the room was clear he played one last song for Maggie and Mason to share alone. It was so romantic and sweet and a moment I’m sure they’re remember forever.
It’s engagement season which means it’s also engagement session season! It’s still winter here in KC so we many times have to use the old indoor stand-by Union Station. Luckily Lindsay and Jon were brave enough to step outside for a few before we froze.
For this week’s TBT I’m revisiting Amy and Steve’s wedding from 2012. This wedding was coordinated by a dear friend of mine, Kim Ho of You’re Invited and was hosted at The Foundation in the west bottoms.
In the years since their big day they’ve welcomed two adorable little boys whom I’ve had the pleasure to get to know and work with as well.
In the winter I have some time to breath, catch up and fill up the blog with the previous season’s weddings! With it so cold today (and the promise of some more of the white stuff on the way) I’m dreaming of this beautiful May day that I spent with Courtney and Nate.
I love the way they filled Abe and Jakes with gorgeous spring blooms, custom table numbers on wine bottles and hand-lettered signs.
Ok, ok I’m a day late on my Throwback Thursday. Today I’m sharing a family that I’ve had the pleasure to work with for years and years. It all started however with Haley and Stephen’s engagement session. Since that very windy day at Shawnee Mission Park I’ve be blessed to be with them for their wedding, two other sibling’s weddings, a close friend’s wedding, their children’s baby photos and many members of their family’s new arrivals as well. If you look close at the wedding party photo at The Nelson, you see a “yet to be couple” standing together just to the right of them (years later Haley’s sister and Stephen’s best friend married each other!)
I adore working with this family and I like to think that over the years we’ve become friends.
