Inspiration | Boho Vibes and 70s Nostalgia

I’d been dreaming of this shoot for over a year. Right after I shot my first styled shoot at Jansen Place I started a mood board for this shoot. Inspired by my mother, I wanted to create a wedding that embraced her style, personality, and era of her youth. So naturally a whimsical, boho 1970s themed elopement was my choice. A year later, its finally finished and I couldn’t be more pleased.

It was an odd process bringing this shoot to life. I knew I wanted a Donna’s Dress Shop gown for starters. I found my own vintage reception dress there as a bride and loved the nostalgic, romantic feel of their wedding collection. I met Thor a few months later and knew immediately he would be the perfect groom for this shoot. For a long time I walked around with only those two details in my head. One particular problem was location. I couldn’t picture it. I knew what is wasn’t, but not exactly what it was. The day I walked into John’s Greenhouse I knew I’d found my venue. Still I stalled on beginning the process. It wasn’t until Katelynn Treolo approached me about collaborating a few weeks later that I started coordinating this shoot for real.

After settling on the greenhouse, everything else fell quickly into place. Erin was an obvious choice for the bride, although having never modeled before, her look and easy going attitude were absolutely perfect for what I had envisioned. Luckily for me, she agreed to take part! Professional creatives & friends I’d known for years stepped forward to provide jewelry, stationary, and hair design. I found the perfect macrame backdrop after checking with damn near every rental company in town. It barely fit in the space, but complimented the shoot so well. Lastly, I managed to get my favorite local cake baker and florist to take part. About a week before the shoot I realized I hadn’t contacted anyone about providing dinnerware. I thought on it and grabbed my grandparent’s blue floral china for a crowning personal touch; a set of dishes I knew my mother cherished as well.

I didn’t give a whole lot of direction design wise. I had a vague mood board filled with random images that conveyed more of a feeling, rather something specific. I choose my vendors based on their style and consistency in their field. I trusted them, and they trusted me. The over collaboration, and comradery of the group the day of the shoot was beautiful. (Seriously though. Hire these people! ) I cannot thank them enough for their time and talent.

Inspiration | Modern Spring Romance at The Emerald

Early December I shot this mini styled shoot at the brand new Emerald Event Space in Blue Springs. The overall vibe we wanted to convey was a sense of fun and ease about the space, but what we ended up with was a laid back, slightly edgy, modern take on spring weddings. I had an absolute blast working with this particular set of vendors. It comes as no surprise that two of them are currently nominated for the KC Wedding Vendor Choice Awards. They were a seriously fun and talented bunch. I also have to brag about the absolutely gorgeous gown that was provided. Just look at the tulle train!! It was way too big for the model but after about 4 clips and some safety pins it looked stunning on her! At the very end of the shoot I made the mistake of eating one of the cookies; I say “mistake” because then I had to have another cookie, and then one more because I lack self control. Speaking of which, can we talk about the adorable mini cookie cake alternative? I am a fan.

Couples | Beyond the Pines of Burr Oak Woods

This was my first session to ever get rained out while in progress. It was a very misty morning at Burr Oak Woods. Although my clients and I created many dreamy shots within that famous line of pines, for the sake of this post I wanted to showcase some less coveted details of the small patch of woods. Moss covered branches, tiny red berries, and a high canopy shielding us from the rain are what really captured the essence of this intimate shoot.

We also took a short drive to a nearby town for some variety. Sticking with Burr Oaks as my initial inspiration I attempted to find textures and colors that related to the original location. Scouting for this shoot was tricky since I had never been to the location before and could only use Google Earth. I wanted to find spots that would allow me to reduce or abstract the idea of a forest passage. I was quite pleased with my discoveries of a black plywood wall and the colorful concrete siding of a local theater.

Finally, we decided to cut our losses after about 20 minutes at the second location, but not before attempting to shoot in consistent rainfall. Cold and damp we retreated to the warmth of our vehicles, but regardless, it was an adventure worth having.

Inspiration | Ever After at The Everly KC

I have an absolute love of styled shoots. They keep my expanded portfolio looking fresh af, they are wonderful networking opportunities, and they are super creative shoots that allow me to both experiment and refine.

My recent shoot at The Everly is definitely one of my absolute favorites. Partially this is because I was the only photographer present, which gave me a lot of room to play unlike most styled shoots; mostly, this was because the entire atmosphere was styled to be dark and romantic, as my images most naturally appear. I didn’t quite realize how beautiful this shoot would be until I showed up and my jaw hit the floor over the ceremony backdrop. Once they added the votive candles along the aisle I thought I was gonna cry. The entire atmosphere was warm and soft, set aglow by candle light, string lights adorning the ceiling, and refined further by spot lights to illuminate the backdrop just so.

The Everly itself is an incredibly versatile space; it has an industrial, modern look, but a warm and nostalgic air about itself that is incredibly inviting. Tucked in the heart of The Crossroads it becomes something utterly of Kansas City, and provides access to many local historic markers. Incorporating the surrounding locations into the shoot was very important. So naturally I forced the models to walk a block down the road to Town Topic for a few pictures. Strangers congratulating them on their non-marriage along the way!

Wedding | An Elegant Open Air Chapel Wedding

Autumn and Clayton were so much fun and so down to earth. I loved working with them, their little sons, and all the their entire wedding party throughout their beautiful wedding day, and I mean beautiful.  I spoke on and off with Autumn's twin Ariel (the MOH) since late November in preparation, and met Autumn for the first time at the pre-wedding consultation about a month in advance. I could tell a lot of time and thought had been put into planning, but I never felt that either were rigid in their ideas as they listed off thoughts and hopes for the images from the big day. I'm not sure who could go wrong with a venue as gorgeous as Deer Ridge Estate anyway. Also that open air chapel! I'm a sucker for chapels. I loved so much about this day, from the rain in the early afternoon to the insane intricate lace bridal gown.  Everything was a little rustic, a little boho, with a classic elegance. Overall it was a gorgeous affair for an awesome couple.
