When we first met Megan and Caleb at our studio back in March of 2016, we knew right away that they were “our people”. It was just such a great fit and thankfully they felt the same way! We had a blast at their engagement session later that spring, where it was absolutely imperative that his 1977 lime green Ford F150, that he re-built with his grandpa, made a cameo. By the time their wedding day rolled around, we were even more excited. There were so many special little moments between friends and family, they had Waldo Pizza for dinner [can everyone just do this, please?], and they ended the night with a private dance to their first song…just the two of them…before being seen off by their guests. It was an absolutely perfect day, and we are so glad we get to share it with you. Megan and Caleb, thank you so much for including us and trusting us to tell your story. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness!!!

We have never done [and will never do] traditional bridal shows. They are a great resource for a lot of people, but they just don’t align with our typical clients and how we work. BUT, we were invited to take part in a non-traditional and super cool “bridal show” [a vendor mingle, as they call it] called The Big Reveal. And we are so glad we accepted their invitation…because that is where we met Hanyu and Byung. These two came up to chat with us, and ultimately decided they wanted us to be the ones to photograph their wedding. Yay! When we started planning their engagement session, we asked them [like we do all of our couples] how they spend their time together, where they like to hang out, and what they like to do. We feel it is important to try to make each session as personal as possible, so that it really reflects the couple and their relationship. These guys said they are pretty quiet and love hanging out at home, in their comfies, with their adorable little doggie [shout out to my fellow homebodies!]. So that is naturally where we started out. When they do go out, they love heading downtown…and who doesn’t, right? Downtown KC is where it’s at, these days! All in all, we just had a great time getting to know them a little more, and we are even more excited for their wedding this spring. Thanks for spending the afternoon with us guys…we can’t wait for May 13th!
Some people in KC might not have wanted the snow we got a little while back. But we were thrilled because it made this beautiful couple’s day all the more magical. In fact, we think more people should plan January weddings! This was an absolutely lovely day, and Rebecca and Coleton did things just how they wanted. From Rebecca getting ready in her family home, to the wedding party hitting up Arrowhead for photos, to the Louisburg Cider Mill donuts they brought out for their guests at the end of the night. It was all just perfect. Thank you, Rebecca and Coleton, for inviting us to be part of your day. It has been an honor getting to know your family, and we are grateful that we get to tell your story.

We said “Adios!” to 2016 with Stefanie and Kevin. And we ushered in 2017 with them too. Yep…they had their reception first…on New Year’s Eve, and their wedding on New Year’s Day. Why? Because they wanted to. And it was perfect. They had both events at the beautiful James P. Davis Hall on Wyandotte County Lake, which suited them and their style so very well. These two have a very long history together, so this day was truly all about them finally saying “I do” to each other, while being surrounded by the friends and family who are most important to them. There were so many special moments shared between them and the ones they love, and we are humbled and grateful that we are the ones who got to be there to witness and capture it all. Take your time with this post. Scroll through slowly and really take it all in. It’s like you can just feel the emotions jumping out of the screen. Like we always say…the cake shot can wait. The ring shot can wait. But moments like so many of these are fleeting and are gone in the blink of an eye. Moments are what matter. And this wedding was not short on them. Stefanie and Kevin…thank you so much for having us. And congratulations on your new life together. May it be long, and filled with much love.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!! Documenting wedding stories is what we do. Or at least, it’s one of the most important things we do. And there is never a shortage of wonderful emotion-filled little moments to capture and freeze in time forever. 2016 was no exception to this, so we are truly delighted to share some of our favorite moments that have happened over course of the past year. Some of them might make you laugh, some might elicit a tear or two [we’ll never tell], and some might just draw you in for some unknown reason and make you want to linger for just a moment longer. Whatever they do to you, we think [hope] that these moments will show what we believe is the most important part of every wedding that we shoot. Of course we take lots of shots of all the pretty details, family photos, and everything else that everyone thinks of when they think of “wedding photos”. And those photos are important too! But when all is said and done, THIS is the stuff that really matters. The special little glance between two people, the teary eyed dance of a father and daughter, the uncontrollable laughter of bridesmaids celebrating their best friend’s special day, and of course all the hilarious kid outtakes. This is the good stuff that all too often goes unnoticed…but that none of us really ever want to forget. So it is our mission to make sure that as many as possible of these wonderful and once in a lifetime little moments get preserved forever. We sincerely hope that you will enjoy taking a journey through these photos. And if you are planning a wedding in the next year or two, give us a shout on our contact form so we can tell your story too. It would be an honor.
