When we started discussing Kelly and Ben’s engagement session with them, we discovered that they are a lot like us. Low key, love to hang around their neighborhood, LOVE their dogs, and have a soft spot for Minsky’s Pizza [although they weren’t in the mood for pizza on the day of their session]. We had a ton of fun just hanging out with them and capturing some snippets of their regular everyday life at some of their favorite spots. And we can’t wait for their big day this coming October!
Lindsey and Ethan love to travel the world, to visit exotic places, and to live a life of adventure. And now they get to do it as Mr. and Mrs.! These two are all about keeping things relaxed and low stress, making sure there is always room for humor, and most of all having FUN. Their beautiful celebration took place at Longview Mansion, and everything went off without a hitch. There was time to relax, time to dance, gorgeous details [and a stunning cake], and even a ceremony time betting pool. The clock started at “You may be seated” and ended at announcements. Genius. Lindsey and Ethan, thank you for inviting us into your world. It’s been an absolute blast, and we can’t wait to hear where you go next!

Even though June 11, 2016 was one of the hottest days of the year so far, it was still a beautiful day to say “I do”. Liz and Jason made it official, with her uncle officiating, at the stunningly beautiful St. Michael the Archangel Catholic Parish in Leawood, KS. And after some fun [and sweaty] portraits around the city, they celebrated and danced the night away at Carriage Club in midtown Kansas City. Congratulations you two!!! Best wishes for a lifetime of love and happiness.

Emily and Peter’s engagement session is one of our all time favorites. And their wedding certainly didn’t disappoint either. For them, it was all about keeping things simple, stress free, and fun. Our kind of wedding! Everything went down on this beautiful June day at River Market Event Place. From the guys getting ready in the airstream outside, to their gorgeous ceremony inside, to the ice cream truck that showed up with sweet treats for all their guests. It was all just perfect. Of course, we had to venture out a little bit on the streetcar…what a gift this has proven to be for getting around downtown KC with wedding parties! One of our favorite moments of the day was when their guests “warmed” their rings for them. We first saw this at a wedding we shot in January, and we immediately fell in love with this tradition. Emily and Peter, thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your day. It was such a pleasure to tell your story.

You would think that after 9 years of photographing the same people, we might run out of things to say or stories to tell. Not so with these guys. Their wedding in 2007 was the beginning of this beautiful relationship, and we kinda love them like no others. Apparently they at least like us a little bit too. After-all, they let us into their hospital room when they were getting ready to give birth to these two little monkeys. That means they like us, right? After they were born, we thought they might be the cutest little people we had ever seen. Maybe even cuter than our own. But we didn’t know what cute was. Every…single…time we shoot them, they are 1000 times more adorable than the last. Seriously…just look at them! Can you even??? Oh the plans we have for these two…first day of school, prom, high school graduation, weddings…Until next time, Soltz Family.
