Amber and Jonathan just recently made the move to Seattle, after having lived in Kansas City for 9 years. And before they left, they wanted to take the time to get some photos of themselves in this city they came to love. They lived just off the Plaza, and spent a lot of time in that neighborhood, so it was fitting that we spent our time with them there, as well. The session ended with a few shots of them in front of their building so they would never forget it. Amber and Jonathan, best of luck to you as you embark on this new adventure! Seattle is an awesome place, but we hope that KC will always hold a special place in your hearts.
We can’t even begin to tell you how excited we were for this day. Maybe even as excited as Ashley and Matt. You see, we have been photographing Matt’s sister and her family for several years now, so we were over the moon excited when we found out these two were getting married…and they wanted us to document it for them! And this day certainly did not disappoint. They had a gorgeous ceremony and reception at one of our favorites…The Guild, and so many of their loving family and friends were there to celebrate with them. Just look at the faces of those bridesmaids when they see Ashley for the first time. And don’t get us started on the beautiful relationship between Ashley, her mom, and her stepmom [and now her mother-in-law, as well!]. This is what it’s all about, folks. Everyone just came together to cheer these two on as they start their new life together, and we are so thankful we got to be there too. Ashley and Matt, thank you…thank you…thank you. This was such an honor.

Leigh and Patrick are both super talented musicians, and we are fortunate to get to work with them at some of KC’s best weddings. But now THEY are the ones getting married! Woohoo!!!! And we are the lucky ducks who get to take their photos. <insert happy dance> They first met at one of my personal favorite spots…The Blue Room. So of course we had to head down to 18th and Vine for a few shots. After that, we just had some fun galavanting with them around this beautiful city. I mean, just look at her beautiful smile and laugh to get a little taste for how much fun we had. You can’t NOT smile when you look at it, right? They are planning a wedding at Patrick’s family farm this October, and we can hardly wait!
Have you ever gone to shoot a wedding and discovered when you got there that the bride’s father was your Brigade XO during your long ago military days? No? Well it happened to Jason when he arrived on Ashley and Tim’s wedding day. What are the chances? Anyhoo, this was such a wonderful day, and we are so happy we got to take part! We first met Ashley and Tim via Skype, because they don’t live in KC. They decided they wanted us to be the ones to photograph their wedding, so away we went! Their day was so intimate and special, and was just the most lovely celebration of them becoming husband and wife. They elected not to have a wedding party, but rather just the two of them standing up to say their vows. And it was perfect. Ashley and Tim, thank you both for inviting us and trusting us to document your story for you. Best wishes for many years of love and happiness!

Even though Loose Park is a gorgeous spot for a wedding ceremony, whenever we hear that someone is planning one there, we get a little nervous. After all, there is no backup location in case of rain! A few days before Kim and Paul’s big day, the weather didn’t look like it was going to cooperate, and everyone was a little worried, to say the least. But lo and behold, Mother Nature delivered a beautiful [almost too] sunny day, and everything went off without a hitch! They had a beautiful ceremony in the rose garden, and then headed off to The Monarch Room for their reception. It was such a wonderful day with so many family and friends there to celebrate their marriage. The bride and groom’s first dance, and Kim’s dance with her mom were two of our absolute favorite moments of the day. Kim and Paul, thank you so much for inviting us to be part of your wedding day. We had such a wonderful time, and we wish you the very best for a lifetime of love, health, wealth, and happiness!
