Megan + Eric | Married at Bethany Lutheran and the Ritz Charles

March 15th, 2012

Megan and Eric had to wait a bit for their wedding highlights, since I was in sunny Cancun for 8 days! You saw their sneak peek a week and a half ago, and here’s, as Paul Harvey said…the rest of the story. (I think I may be dating myself here) Megan and Eric officially closed […]

 

Megan and Eric had to wait a bit for their wedding highlights, since I was in sunny Cancun for 8 days! You saw their sneak peek a week and a half ago, and here’s, as Paul Harvey said…the rest of the story. (I think I may be dating myself here)

Megan and Eric officially closed off my winter weddings on yet another sunny day. Myself and my clients really lucked out with our non-winter! What a great day to kick off, though, what is officially the beginnings of “busy season”. It all went smoothly thanks to Lynn at Above and Beyond Weddings!

I wanted to use Megan and Eric’s wedding to really show some of the more photojournalistic side of what we do. Sure, I can capture gorgeous portraiture and have a knack for “finding the light”. That’s what initially draws potential clients to want to find out more about my work. What doesn’t always get featured are all those awesome moments that happen during the day. Megan and Eric’s reception, in particular, had lots of great moments. I included quite a few more reception images than I usually do, but I really wanted to hallmark this. It’s the challenge that keeps me looking forward to each and every wedding – it’s almost a game, to hunt for those special moments in the day that when captured, will bring tears to the eyes and smiles to the faces of clients for decades to come. THAT’S wedding photography.

Enjoy!

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!

Loved everything about Laura and Dan’s wedding, which was so relaxed and intimate. After the ceremony at gorgeous little Pilgrim Chapel in Kansas City, we headed to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and then the reception site, Lodge at Ironwoods in Leawood, Kansas, to do bride and groom and wedding party photography. The evening wound up with some great shots of the two departing in their getaway car, a Bentley! Here’s just a glimpse into their fun day! Thanks to Mike Tsai, second shooter extraodinaire, for the help!

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.
