Lauren + Grant | a holiday Town Pavilion wedding

Lauren and Grant’s Town Pavilion wedding on the last weekend of 2012 was simply put, gorgeous. I love this venue and the special touches that venue coordinator Sharon Ko puts on wedding days. Lauren decided to go to Union Station for part of her photos (partly to stay warm, partly because it was where she and Grant were engaged!), and her wedding colors were stunning against the still-decorated-for-Christmas backdrop of the historic building. Second shooter Ali Gripp and I were not short on moments on their wedding day; the parent dances during the reception were especially touching. And Grant’s little brother? What a ham! He had everyone laughing out loud all day long! This wedding officially wraps up 2012 for SDP and onward into 2013 we go!

Melissa and Jason | a Winter Wonderland

January 5th, 2013

Melissa wanted some light snow on her wedding day; y’know, enough to give her wedding the elegant wintry, holiday feel, but not enough to make travel difficult. Well, she got it! She also got windchills near zero so we did very little photography outside. What we did get, with the snow falling lightly, was amazing! […]

 

Melissa wanted some light snow on her wedding day; y’know, enough to give her wedding the elegant wintry, holiday feel, but not enough to make travel difficult. Well, she got it! She also got windchills near zero so we did very little photography outside. What we did get, with the snow falling lightly, was amazing! I entered Melissa and Jason’s wedding day after several weekends off from weddings, it being the “slow season” and all. I was anxious to shoot and their wedding day didn’t disappoint. What a fun day (and evening) and I thoroughly enjoyed shooting with 2nd shooter Ali Gripp as well! Here’s the story of their day, cold, snow, holidays, and all! Congratulations, guys!

Amy + Doug | Intercontinental Kansas City wedding

November 15th, 2012

As far as interests go – what a incredibly coincidental combination these two have with respect to my own! Amy is an accomplished (VERY accomplished) dressage rider…I grew up riding and showing and until recently, when a certain photography business took over my life 😉 competed in dressage myself.

As far as interests go – what a incredibly coincidental combination these two have with respect to my own! Amy is an accomplished (VERY accomplished) dressage rider…I grew up riding and showing and until recently, when a certain photography business took over my life 😉 competed in dressage myself. Doug is an accomplished (VERY accomplished) pilot – as most of you know my husband and I both fly as well. So, I had a lot to identify with in these two! It was all I could do to stay on task and not engage in conversation all day, but somehow I succeeded and second shooter Mike Tsai and I had SUCH a fun time capturing this day. Such emotion! Loved these two and loved how fun-loving everyone was, from the rehearsal dinner that I shot on Friday evening all the way to our finish on Saturday. (reference the reception: Doug, his best man, and his ushers had a trick up their sleeve, no pun intended, for Amy and the guests at the reception: peeling off their jackets to reveal CRAZY rainbow-zebra-striped sleeves on their tux shirts – Amy’s expression was priceless!)

Enjoy experiencing their wedding day in images!

Nathan + Allie | fall at Kansas City’s Uptown Theater

November 8th, 2012

Nathan and Allie are the sweetest couple. Both of them. (and Allie shows horses, which makes her uber-cool.) I knew this would be a fun day, and a challenging one.

Nathan and Allie are the sweetest couple. Both of them. (and Allie shows horses, which makes her uber-cool.) I knew this would be a fun day, and a challenging one. Nathan and Allie chose not to see each other before the ceremony, leaving the bride and groom portraiture to occur after dark. We ran into a couple of small snafus (JC Nichols fountain lights were off? No problem!) but we certainly got some dramatic shots. Loved this wedding and love their venue, the Uptown Theater.

I’ll quit yapping and show you the photos – Allie leaves for a horse show tomorrow so I’d better get these up! 🙂

Andy + Megan | a rainy day filled with love

October 24th, 2012

Once in a while, you just get a rainy day. We’ve not seen many of them this season, what with the 100-year drought and all. There have been a LOT of clouds this fall but not so much rain. Megan and Andy’s wedding was an unfortunate exception to that – it didn’t only rain, it […]

 

Once in a while, you just get a rainy day. We’ve not seen many of them this season, what with the 100-year drought and all. There have been a LOT of clouds this fall but not so much rain. Megan and Andy’s wedding was an unfortunate exception to that – it didn’t only rain, it rained ALL DAY. Once in a while a photographer gets a truly challenging kink to the wedding day timeline, and you’ve just got to make it work. Luckily, Megan and Andy were very flexible and very relaxed about the challenge thrown at us. We had about 20 minutes where the rain stopped enough that we could get out and do the wedding party shots and get a few of the two of them. Then it started again. And eventually stopped enough for them to hold their ceremony outside as planned, 30 minutes later than scheduled – it worked! Since the day was so wet, I offered them a brief aftershoot on Sunday in downtown Kansas City, near their hotel, right before Andy had to return his tux and the afternoon before they returned home to California.

If rain on your wedding day truly is good luck, Megan and Andy most definitely have a lifetime of it ahead. Congratulations!

Mallory + Tom | St Agnes and La Joie Events wedding

What a fun and crazy wedding party Mallory and Tom had last Friday. I mean FUN! (and you want to talk about fun? Check out those bowties, kerchiefs and boutonnieres, not to mention the “bling” theme throughout Mallory’s decor!)

Brianne + Raul | a gorgeous day at the Hawthorne House

Well, the heat finally broke. Not only did the heat finally break, but Brianne and Raul had the NICEST day we’ve had in months. Seriously. In mid-August, that takes one severe stroke of luck, but we took it! What a fun day – and what a gorgeous wedding. But that’s not hard to do when your venue is the Hawthorne House. And the reception? What can I say about the reception? It was the wildest dance party I’ve seen, well, maybe ever. What fun! My 2nd shooter Ali Gripp agreed, totally. The latin beats had everyone grooving all night long. I’m a little late getting this one up, so rather than contiuing to wax poetic, we’ll get right down to business. Congrats Brianne and Raul!

Ashley + Kris – a great way to hit the midpoint of wedding season!

I always take vacation the last 10 days of July – therefore Ashley and Kris were my last wedding, the day before my “All-Star break” hit for 2012. 🙂 And what a great way to wrap up the first half of the season and head into part 2! These two ADORE each other, you can just tell it. I’ve never seen so many smiles – on both of their accounts – as I did their wedding day! As per usual this summer, we had a hot day, but we broke up the outside shooting enough that no one noticed. Their wedding party was wild and crazy (you’re seeing the TAME shots here!) and everyone just made the day so much fun. I also had fun working with 2nd shooter Nick Schale on this one, even though he was hobbling around on a broken foot! (you’d never know it, he got around just as quickly as I did) I LOVED their reception venue, the Vox Theatre – it was my first chance shooting there. Congrats guys – and thanks for being patient with seeing your highlights since I skipped town the day after your wedding for some R&R!
