Leah & Pat + a great way to end the summer

  Hands down,  this was the largest number of bridal party members I have ever witnessed. 25 to be exact. It just comes with the territory when Pat played baseball in college, as well as Leah playing volleyball in college. You’d think would have been hectic, but they were all so much fun and surprisingly […]

I love the art of capturing expression and they both definitely provided my with a lot of opportunities to get moments that will forever be loved on by […]

Melissa & Scott + Jacobs Well + The Villa {KC Weddings}

Melissa & Scott, I met at the John Knox Pavillion’s Bridal Show in 2010 and am so glad they came my way. They are as colorful a couple as their wedding colors. And of course their friends and family were just as much fun to spend the day with. Scott’s best man and their reader […]

Marissa & Brad | Longview Mansion Engagement

So one of my favorite things when I shoot with couples, is when one (or even both) of them “giggles” the whole time. It’s either A-out of nervousness.. or B-because they are straight up adorable and are completely enjoying their shoot with me. I think B for sure. Heck, I can tell that when I’m […]
