CJ + Jerad | A Topeka Great Overland Station wedding

CJ and Jerad live in Florida, but hail from Topeka – so coming “home” for a December wedding was surely a shock to the system! It was a fairly pleasant day for early winter, however, and the sun shone bright which is always a blessing this time of year (I say as I type with dreary gray skies and drizzle outside my window!). This couple’s wedding marked my 3rd of the year not only at the ceremony location (Christ the King Catholic Church) but also the reception site, the Great Overland Station. It was also the last wedding of the year that I worked alongside Lyn Scardina, who did the wedding planning for the couple. After the ceremony we headed to Jerad’s alma mater, Washburn University, for some fun photos in the baseball stadium. See, Jerad’s a baseball player (by profession!) so it was only fitting. We then headed to a local bar so the wedding party could watch the KU basketball game (sports run deep with this group!) before the reception. Here’s the story of their day, as told by myself and second shooter Mike Tsai. Warning: CJ and Jerad’s daughter Avenley provides some serious cute overload.

Danyelle + Beau | Topeka Great Overland Station wedding

May 4th, 2011

Danyelle and Beau had a PICTURE perfect day to get married. With Mike Tsai’s help, we captured a FANTASTIC family surrounding these two with so much love. The candids from this wedding are just awesome. And you can’t fake candids – there was so much emotion through the day; laughter, tears, hugs, cute kid moments. […]

 

Danyelle and Beau had a PICTURE perfect day to get married. With Mike Tsai’s help, we captured a FANTASTIC family surrounding these two with so much love. The candids from this wedding are just awesome. And you can’t fake candids – there was so much emotion through the day; laughter, tears, hugs, cute kid moments. The photojournalistic, emotional side to weddings is what continually draws me to shooting them; certainly, you do have to be good with portraiture, composition, and light usage (sometimes in super difficult conditions), but wedding photography also requires an ability to capture moments the instant they happen. Great wedding photographers have to be incredibly versatile shooters and it’s what remains a huge challenge to this kind of work. Mike and I (Mike especially, his candids from Beau and Danyelle’s wedding were AMAZINGLY good) really had a lot to work with with these two!

In case you want to take a look back, here’s their fall Lawrence engagement session; if you want to see the happily married couple, just scroll through this post! Danyelle and Beau, you were a TON of fun to work with and I hope you are really enjoying Hawaii!
