Inspiration | Extra Moody and Ethereal at Pavilion Event Space

At some point in January I was enviously scrolling through a gorgeous styled shoot. It had been over a year since I’d self coordinated one of my own, and while I wanted to shoot something beautiful and a little out there, I also was aware of the amount of work it takes to put together such a shoot. I flippantly posted at about 6 one morning that I wanted to photograph a “super extra” styled shoot. I promptly fell back asleep thinking nothing of it, but when I checked my phone a few hours later everyone and their dog seemed interested and on board to take part. And so, this little jewel was born.

Going in I didn’t know exactly what this would look like. After a surprising amount of interest I was kind of pulling a theme out of thin air. Luckily I had Katelynn’s help in creating a vision. All I knew was moody and very over the top. I met with Kacie at Pavilion and she asked me the colors I was using and I just stared at her blankly. I had given that absolutely no thought. I tend to create things by feel, so coordinating these types of shoots is so puzzling for me. I never focus on little details, but focus on the overall mood and concept. Luckily everyone was very patient and accommodating to my lack of specific vision. After a lot of thought, I was finally able to verbalize that I wanted something moody, ethereal, and editorial. I wanted the shoot to feel almost like an enchanted forest: beautiful, but with a hint of malevolence. Even if I hadn’t been able to get that across I have no doubts these guys would’ve come through regardless. They are all kind of the shit.

I had shot at Pavilion a year prior at my first styled shoot ever. I adored the space and hoped I’d get brought back for a real wedding, but it seemed Kacie and I kept just missing each other; a couple who booked me ultimately decided on a different venue, a couple that booked her ultimately booked a different photographer, and so on and so forth. If it wasn’t going to happen naturally we were going to collaborate in this regard. She had some brilliant ideas, and alone suggested and designed our gorgeous head table structure, draping it with beautiful dove grey and ivory fabric. Matt with Botanical Floral Design, in turn created gorgeous pieces to adorn the space; arrangements filled with exotic blooms, a chandelier of greenery, and beautiful flowering branches to frame the structure. Chrystal with Petals and Pastries created the most perfect cake I could’ve ever dreamed up, and even Veronica gave us some say in her veil design. Which was absolutely, stunning by the way!

One thing which turned out so perfectly was our selection of models. I knew the second Ellis volunteered that we had our groom. Five years prior we happened to be studying abroad at the same time in Italy. We weren’t incredibly close but I remember listening to an elaborate tale he told me that literally took the entire duration of our train ride to Rome. The story? He’d walked into a fake wedding a restaurant had put together in order to “make money.” (I don’t remember a lot of details, but it was quite entertaining. You should definitely ask him about it some time, but make sure your schedule is clear for the day first.) Naturally, it seemed only fitting that as a model and photographer we should meet again to do the exact thing that had amused us so years prior. I mean, he’s also a kick ass model but the irony sealed the deal for sure. Ellis was the one who suggested we use Beth. I know a ton of amazing models, but I really like the two people I’m photographing to know each other and have some natural chemistry. It’s always great to have a real couple, but for a shoot I knew would be very editorial in nature I wanted pros who would just do their thing while I snapped away. And boy, did they. These two didn’t skip a beat. Even in the freezing cold they just dropped their jackets and didn’t so much as flinch.

There were so many other amazing persons involved: Evan with Pavilion who put together our custom cocktails, Jennifer with Brossie Belle who stepped in quickly when our original rental plan fell thru, and many more! You can browse those individuals, and see their talent below. I think our HMUA, Shani said it best when she wrote, “Dream Team Vendors right here! A great team can put on a dream wedding. It's what makes the difference between good enough, and spectacular. Find the right team to complete your vision!”

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.

Wedding | Dutch Still-Life Inspired Celebration at Loose Mansion

Kayla and Josh’s intimate Loose Mansion wedding was the fine art wedding of my dreams. Inspired by the autumn season they choose to use a combination of flowers and earthy vegetation throughout their day. The overall aesthetic was modeled after Dutch Still-Life painting. Y’all know how I feel about Dutch still-life paintings! Y’all know my Oklahoma accent starts comin’ out when I get excited.

Kayla and Josh chose to have a private ‘family only’ ceremony and a beautiful hand binding. Following the ceremony was a large reception which included the most hilarious Father of the Bride speech I’ve ever heard, and was concluded with a send off filled with bubbles and lots of cheers. The couple had chosen a team of impeccable vendors. Loose Mansion and Levity I always enjoy working with, and no one can go wrong with a cake from McLain’s. I’d also been dying to shoot a wedding with florals designed by The Cottage Rose, and they did not disappoint. Dream team status for real.

Vendors and details aside, I really enjoyed getting to know Kayla and Josh throughout their engagement, and working with them on their wedding day. They were an easy going couple with a great sense of humor, and a super cute corgi. I appreciated that they cast tradition aside and really made their wedding their own. They revealed their love in ways that felt utterly genuine; hand written letters for before and after the ceremony, hand binding, a few tears, and lots of laughs.

Inspiration | Revvin' Up for Wedding Season at The Fuel House

Got the opportunity last month to be apart of styled shoot to launch the event branding for The Fuel House, an automotive club and event venue in Bonnor Springs. Seriously, this place is amazing. The work and care that went into it’s creation is evident, from it’s gorgeous mid century modern furniture to the beautiful interior reception space; it’s a place where industrial meets glamour, appealing to a wide variety of modern couples looking for a venue with a little grit. And yes, car enthusiasts will drool over this place for sure.

Also, the owner was super nice and let us play with two cars from his collection. (Play being photograph and drive like 20 feet.) It was rad. I’m gonna be thrilled when a couple books me for a real wedding in this space. It’s my style for sure.
