Kathleen + David: engaged | Briarcliff Park and English Landing Park

Portrait season is starting to really slow down now (the weddings are still going strong, though!), so I enjoy the few chances I get to get out and shoot.

Portrait season is starting to really slow down now (the weddings are still going strong, though!), so I enjoy the few chances I get to get out and shoot. I met Kathleen and David late in the afternoon at my studio and we set out to shoot briefly at Briarcliff Park (right across the street!) and then headed over to Parkville to finish the shoot. This couple was really, REALLY fun. 🙂 We shot right up ’til sunset including actually getting the gorgeous sunset. Enjoy!

Will you guys leave them some love in the comments section and tell them what an incredibly cute […]

Tisha + Brooks: married | 2000 Grand, Kansas City, Missouri

November 18th, 2010

Brooks and Tisha have such lovely families. Never have I shot a wedding and been made to feel SO welcome (I mean, people asking me if they could get me anything, ALL DAY…made my heart all fuzzy….). And their lovely family goes right down to their twin daughters, Andie and Rylie (you can also see […]

 

Brooks and Tisha have such lovely families. Never have I shot a wedding and been made to feel SO welcome (I mean, people asking me if they could get me anything, ALL DAY…made my heart all fuzzy….). And their lovely family goes right down to their twin daughters, Andie and Rylie (you can also see the whole clan at Tisha and Brook’s engagement session here). Which you will see featured in all their adorableness below….that red hair!! 2000 Grand was such a great venue to shoot – and Tisha and Brooks’ city-themed wedding was fantastic. The ceremony was intimate, and the reception was so fun (just check some of the dancing shots below). Plus, we had great backdrops for wedding party shots all around the building.

And….as with any November wedding that has at least tolerable temps, they were SUPER lucky in the weather department. I mean, it was WARM!

Enjoy their sneak peek!

Elena + Travis: married | the Larimore House Plantation, Florissant, Missouri

November 16th, 2010

Elena and Travis were SUCH a joy to work with from the moment I met them for their engagement session on a 103 degree day (yes, it was that hot) with their absolutely adorable dog Alfie (or “Bean” as Elena likes to call her). The connection? There. SUCH an easy couple to photograph and Elena […]

 

Elena and Travis were SUCH a joy to work with from the moment I met them for their engagement session on a 103 degree day (yes, it was that hot) with their absolutely adorable dog Alfie (or “Bean” as Elena likes to call her). The connection? There. SUCH an easy couple to photograph and Elena is absolutely the sweetest person you’ll ever meet. So it was with much anticipation that I traveled to St. Louis to shoot their wedding on a cooooold November day (the ceremony, originally slated to be held outdoors at sunset, had to be moved inside). The Larimore House Plantation is GORGEOUS and I so enjoyed shooting there.

Elena and Travis chose not to see each other before the ceremony, so we had to do the bride and groom shots after dark – I mixed things up with some off-camera flash and although different from standard bride/groom portraits, I’m pleased with what we got. I’m so excited to finally get some weddings on the blog that I’ve held on for a few days…I love my job!!!

Enjoy! Two more wedding blog posts headed towards my faithful blog-stalkers yet this week as well – as I continue to get caught up from this INSANELY busy fall season. So after you enjoy these images, stay tuned for Brooks’ and Tisha’s wedding, then Nick and Jessie to follow!! 🙂

Carly + Chad: engaged | Shawnee Mission Park

Carly and Chad have so much love and laughter going on between them, they are SO easy to shoot. They required little to no direction – just pure interaction. I LOVED working with them!! And at one of my absolute favorite spots in town for engagement sessions – Shawnee Mission Park. I have a feeling (just a hunch!) that I’m going to love working with them again for their wedding – on what will undoubtedly be one of the most popular wedding dates of 2011, 9-10-11!

Kaylee K: senior portrait session | Briarcliff Village and Loose Park

November 9th, 2010

Kaylee and her mom met me at the studio last week to embark on her senior photos – the days had shortened to the point that we had to rush to get to Loose Park and have enough daylight left. I’m glad we did – Kaylee’s ballerina shots are among my favorite senior shots ever, […]

 

Kaylee and her mom met me at the studio last week to embark on her senior photos – the days had shortened to the point that we had to rush to get to Loose Park and have enough daylight left. I’m glad we did – Kaylee’s ballerina shots are among my favorite senior shots ever, I believe. Isn’t she such a pretty girl?

Anastasia + Ben: engaged | Kansas City’s Power and Light District

November 8th, 2010

I’ve had very little opportunity to shoot around downtown Kansas City proper for an engagement session, so I was happy when Anastasia suggested it as a location for hers and Ben’s session. This super cute couple just recently got engaged in Las Vegas – and will be returning there for their wedding!
