Lauren + Jayme | if you can’t stand the heat…get married!

July 17th, 2012

Lauren and Jayme did a GREAT job of not letting the unrelenting heat get to them on their wedding day.

Lauren and Jayme did a GREAT job of not letting the unrelenting heat get to them on their wedding day. We spent our outside time shooting in the absolute heat of the day – everyone was sweaty, 2nd shooter Mike Tsai and I were getting lightheaded…and understandably so, the temperature while we were shooting was 106 degrees! Alas, though, as couples don’t have a choice in the weather they’re given on their wedding day, we pressed ahead, spending as much time as we could stand shooting outdoors, then moving into the lobby areas of the Overland Park Marriott, the site of the reception, for some indoor shots once we hit our limit. (I want to at this point thank EVERY SINGLE member of the wedding party for sticking with us as we shot outside – I know it was miserable but you were troopers and let us get some great shots without complaint!) Mike and I were careful to leave the wedding party members that we weren’t shooting on the bus to recoup in the AC while we traded groups out to cool off for a while.

I absolutely adore this couple and their families! Such touching moments throughout the day, and both Lauren and Jayme were SO relaxed. And it shows! Besides, they, like me, own a Corgi – which undoubtedly are the COOLEST dogs ever. (Right Lauren? Hi Cooper!)  I hope you two had a fabulous honeymoon and enjoyed some tropical temperatures that were, um, a bit more moderate than what we’ve been experiencing here.

Stay cool everyone!

Lyla’s first birthday

I photographed a family portrait session with Lyla and her family just before her first birthday party last Friday.

I photographed a family portrait session with Lyla and her family just before her first birthday party last Friday. We did some family photos out at Ironwoods Park in Leawood, then headed with her parents Lauren and Kurt to their nearby home to get a few photos of the party decor. I also could not resist the shot of her getting her toenails painted for the first time – which she loved – watch out, Lyla’s a girly girl! 🙂 Thanks to Brooke Letorneau for assisting me on this session!

Laura + Travis (and Max!): couples session | Ironwoods Park

September 30th, 2010

Laura and Travis’ couples session at Ironwoods Park in Leawood, Kansas was the first session I’ve done that just felt like fall. Cool, crisp, woodsy and a bit of a gray day (although we got some sunshine for the shoot in the latter half). The type of morning that says “coffee”. The type of morning […]

 

Laura and Travis’ couples session at Ironwoods Park in Leawood, Kansas was the first session I’ve done that just felt like fall. Cool, crisp, woodsy and a bit of a gray day (although we got some sunshine for the shoot in the latter half). The type of morning that says “coffee”. The type of morning where you expect to smell a faraway smell of burning wood. I love summer, but after the summer we’ve had this type of weather is really refreshing! Laura contacted me to do a session for her and her husband Travis after Travis was a groomsman in Becky and Adam’s wedding last July, which I shot. They wanted to shoot around Ironwoods Park for nostalgic reasons – it is home to the Lodge at Ironwoods – where they had their own wedding reception. Then we shot around their backyard a bit with their adorable (and high energy!) Boston Terrier, Max.
