Haley + James | married at Most Pure Heart of Mary and Great Overland Station

Considering I’m in Kansas City, I’ve found myself blessed to be included among the top Topeka wedding photographers for so long. I have Lyn Scardina, Topeka wedding planner, to thank for most of that! I have worked closely with Lyn for years now, and Haley and James’ wedding was a bittersweet one for me, as it was my last time working with Lyn. She’s heading off soon to retirement in the Carolinas. I wish her well!! I still have plenty more Topeka weddings to come, but she has been an absolute blast to work with all this time. Haley and James’ wedding was no different. And I’ve enjoyed working with these two – from their gorgeous engagement session last fall to shooting James’ brother’s wedding (Dan and his lovely bride Jill) – which was also recently featured on my blog!

Considering the incredibly wet spring we have had, these two were lucky to have such a gorgeous sunny day for their early May wedding. Haley looked absolutely stunning (loved her updo/bun!) and these two were having the time of their lives.

Enjoy the photos from their sunny, splendid day!

Jill + Dan | Married at St. Josephs and Heritage Hall, Topeka

May 29th, 2015

Funny thing, I shot Dan and Jill’s wedding last January and am still playing blog catch up. I’m currently editing Dan’s brother, James’ wedding (to the lovely Haley!) from earlier this month. So fun to see their family twice for weddings within months of each other! Haley and James will come to the blog shortly; […]

 

Funny thing, I shot Dan and Jill’s wedding last January and am still playing blog catch up. I’m currently editing Dan’s brother, James’ wedding (to the lovely Haley!) from earlier this month. So fun to see their family twice for weddings within months of each other! Haley and James will come to the blog shortly; but I am excited to share Dan and Jill’s day! The ceremony at the gorgeous old St. Joseph’s Church in Topeka was followed by outdoor photos on an unseasonably warm day (with a weird rain squall that developed and gave us a very dramatic sky!) at the Kansas Museum of History. We wound up at Heritage Hall for the reception. Enjoy the photos from their day!

Rachael & Marvin | married at the Great Overland Station

June 7th, 2013

…and what a perfect venue the Great Overland Station was, when I found out Marvin is a railroad engineer! The bride and groom portraits with the rail cars in the background ended up being quite fitting! I’m out the door in an hour to shoot a rehearsal dinner, so I’ll keep this brief – especially […]

 

…and what a perfect venue the Great Overland Station was, when I found out Marvin is a railroad engineer! The bride and groom portraits with the rail cars in the background ended up being quite fitting! I’m out the door in an hour to shoot a rehearsal dinner, so I’ll keep this brief – especially since I believe the love Rachael and Marvin have for their families truly shows through in their images. These two have the MOST adorable kiddos – who were intimately involved in the wedding day. Here’s the story of this wonderful wedding and wonderful (big!) family!

Courtney and Jered are such a fun-loving couple – and that was very evident on their wedding day! Fun, practical jokes, and a crazy party of a reception truly befit their personalities. What a roller coaster of emotions – I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house during their slide show (which had a section remembering those family members who had passed) and a half hour later, they’ve got a trick up their sleeve for the garter toss. Enjoy the highlights from their day. I hope you two are enjoying sunning yourself in Cancun – jealous! Many thanks to Nancy Sikes for 2nd shooting.

Stephanie + Brady | one very fortunate Kansas wedding!

April 19th, 2012

I felt for Stephanie and Brady as the forecasts became more daunting. Simple forecasts of rain became more strongly-worded; starting with “chance for severe weather” to “severe weather likely Saturday” to the formidable usage of “tornado outbreak”, “strong tornadoes possible” and “high risk area for tornadoes”. With my phone radar in hand, I headed west […]

 

I felt for Stephanie and Brady as the forecasts became more daunting. Simple forecasts of rain became more strongly-worded; starting with “chance for severe weather” to “severe weather likely Saturday” to the formidable usage of “tornado outbreak”, “strong tornadoes possible” and “high risk area for tornadoes”. With my phone radar in hand, I headed west into the “high risk area” for Stephanie and Brady’s Topeka wedding last Saturday. Well, we were lucky. And had a FANTASTIC day. Stephanie had arranged for us to gain access to the Topeka Capital building if we had bad weather, so we’d have a really nice indoor area to shoot. When the time came to head out for Stephanie and Brady’s first look and portraits, we made the call to take the chance for outdoor photos, and I’m so glad they did – they turned out SO gorgeous! This was another day of wonderful families and friends and so many touching moments, besides the luck they had on their side in the weather department. I mean, who would NOT cry when Stephanie opened up Brady’s gift – a ceramic piece he made in ceramics class, and not just any class, but the very class where they met? A joyful (and sometimes funny! I reference the unity candle 😉 ) ceremony followed, then a wonderful, NON-STORMY reception. In fact, the sky was just starting to illuminate with lighting as I left the reception, and I thought back to how fortunate we really were, as I heard news reports of tornadoes causing damage literally all around us.

Stephanie and Brady, thank you for allowing me to be a part of your wonderful day! I’m sorry I brought the wind with me to both your engagement session and wedding day, but I think it still worked out ok 😉

Stephanie and her sister get a look at the shoes that their grandmother painted for Stephanie to wear on her wedding day.

Shayna + Adam | Heritage Hall Topeka wedding

Shayna and Adam were yet again another fantastic winter wedding – during this “anti-winter” we seem to be having. It was quite windy last Saturday in Topeka, Kansas, but still near 50 degrees – a far cry from Adam’s cousin, Megan’s, wedding from almost exactly a year ago, again in Topeka, with over a foot of snow on the ground! Lyn Scardina again did a wonderful job as planner, and Most Pure Heart of Mary was the location for the ceremony and Heritage Hall at the Kansas Expocenter hosted the reception. Such a sweet wedding party (and bride and groom) – 2nd shooter Mike Tsai and I truly had a lot of fun with these guys!

I’ll get right to the photos (just TRY and resist flower girl Amaya’s cuteness!) – because I’m running way behind on getting this one blogged (have been down with a super nasty cold the past two days) and bed is calling for this sick girl to come inhabit it!

Lacy and Adam were winners of my 2010 engagement session contest at the Topeka Bridal Fair. After shooting their engagement session, they decided to book their wedding with SDP. Lacy HAS to be one of the most laid-back brides I’ve worked with, and Adam is such a sweetheart. The couple had such a fantastic ceremony and reception (at Vinewood in Topeka) surrounded by family – and EVERYONE was involved. I mean, young and old alike took over the inflatable guitar and made like a rock star to “Takin’ Care of Business”. 🙂 Many thanks to Nancy Sikes for helping out with the day – she even second-shot for most of the day and did an AWESOME job. Some of her shots even made the blog! Lacy and Adam, I truly enjoyed working with you and I hope you are enjoying Jamaica!!
