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!

Megan + Jeff | Topeka Kansas wedding photography

January 19th, 2011

I first shot with Megan and Jeff almost exactly one year ago. I remember it well. It was a chilly, but fun, engagement session and we were finishing up in Kansas City’s Union Station. I had done a shot of the two on the stairs; the natural light coming in from a nearby window was incredible. So excited, I rushed down the stairs and FELL. Yep, missed a step. The only thing that stopped me from going down an entire half-flight of stairs was Jeff, grabbing me as I fell into them. Sore, and pride hurt a bit, we parted ways…but it was after the session I realized how much I loved these two. Megan actually not only sent me a text message later that day, but emailed me the next day to make sure I was okay (I was).

Both of these two are absolute sweethearts and honestly, I’ve looked forward to their wedding for quite some time. Although it was frigid cold, I was even more excited that we had a fresh blanket of snow to work with. Megan and Jeff had connections with a Kansas State Representative; so we weren’t limited to outside shots after the ceremony, we had the rare opportunity to shoot inside the state capitol building.

It was a LONG day – especially with the drive to and from Kansas City – but these two are so thoughtful, and their families SO sweet, that the day was a breeze. It was also aided by seriously the best wedding planner around – Lyn Scardina of Events!.

While I type this we have a RAGING snowstorm outside. Megan and Jeff are enjoying a CRUISE. Lucky them! I think they’re lucky for a lot of other reasons, too. 🙂

Many thanks to Mike Tsai for second shooting!

Aubri + Mike: married | First Presbyterian Church and Heritage Hall, Topeka Kansas

Aubri and Mike were one of those couples I just knew I was going to enjoy shooting – that I just knew was a good fit for me. You know, one of those couples you meet with and just hit it off. We met last winter when they were home from North Carolina, where they presently reside….I remember it well, in a Panera in Johnson County (this being before I had my own studio space!). They were SO outgoing and SO friendly and warm, I just fell in love with their personalities. And they shone through on their wedding day as well. And Aubri’s style? WOW. Just take a look at this knockout in the images below!

As with all of the weddings I work with Lyn Scardina of Events! (the best planner EVER), the day went off with nary a glitch and despite the threat of rain, it stayed dry and we even had a peek of sun RIGHT as it set at the horizon. After the ceremony, we shot at the Topeka capital building as I did the week prior with Jennie and Luke’s wedding – always a challenge as a photographer to shoot the same location in quick succession but I tried to bring completely new ideas to the table as much as possible! Thanks to Dale Foshe for second shooting with me!

Congrats, Aubri and Mike, and I hope you are enjoying the Bahamas!!

Jennie and Luke were married on a gorgeous fall day last Friday in Topeka – everything about the day was so elegant, from Jennie’s unbelievably gorgeous and un-fussy dress to the details and the reception. Jennie and Luke’s reception moved fairly late in the game to the Bradbury Thompson Center at Washburn University, which was such a nice facility. We spent quite a bit of time shooting around the capital building and grounds as well as Old Prairie Town – I love it when couples give me lots of time to shoot! 🙂

Well, it’s late yet again, I have MOUNDS upon MOUNDS of work to edit…so without getting too verbose…here’s the story of their day.

Finishing up today’s trifecta of blog posts is Jill and Shawn’s wedding from last Saturday. Dale Foshe again helped me out with this one (a few of the images below are his) and we had a GREAT time. Dale even gave his backup camera to Jill’s flower girl, Addison, for “kid cam” coverage during the reception…what a novel and fun idea! The wedding party had a great location picked out to head to between the ceremony and reception – which I was super thrilled about since I don’t know Topeka really well. And they did REALLY WELL. (as you will see.) Jill and Shawn had the most drop dead gorgeous day for their wedding – and we had the most drop dead gorgeous light to work with later in the day!

Without further adieu, here’s some highights for my two newest newlywed clients!

Sarah and Tim’s Topeka wedding was another sweltering one – it’s been a super hot summer. Again everyone was super cool with working quickly in the outdoor heat – I tried to keep outdoor sessions brief and spread out. The wedding ceremony was held at the gorgeous First Presbyterian Church in downtown Topeka and the reception was held at one of my favorite venues to shoot – the Great Overland Station. Sarah and Tim are a super cute, VERY easygoing couple – and the whole wedding party was a lot of fun to work with. Thanks to the expert coordination of Lyn Scardina at Events!, the whole wedding day went off without the slightest of glitches and she makes photography go just as smoothly!

Sarah and Tim, congratulations!
