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.

Wedding | A Classic & Elegant Loose Mansion Wedding

I had to convince myself not to title this post “The Elegance of Light” because while that definitely defines my approach to this wedding day, it sounds like poorly written art theory and not nearly as SEO friendly as what’s above. Since their engagement session how I capture Danthea and Michael has not really been about their interactions at all, as they require very little posing. Most of what I do is watch how the light plays across their figures. Open to the more fleeting and experimental images I capture, I chased light throughout every aspect of their wedding day making it incredibly fun to shoot.

There was a timelessness to this wedding that I still can’t quite pin point, an overall elegance that is both classic and modern. If there was a single object that defined the air of Danthea and Michael’s wedding day it would be Danthea’s veil. Simple, cathedral length, slightly tapered, and held in place by a hair-comb of silk flowers and pearls, it’s organic movement framed this couple’s natural elegance perfectly.

Couples | Quality Time in Quality Hill

Christina & Zach originally only booked me for their wedding day, but when their original engagement photo plans went awry they made the trip to Kansas City to work with me. I’m super glad they did because they were the most fun to photograph! They are both super down to earth people, and were super easy going during the shoot. I don’t think we stopped laughing the entire time. Their shoot was one of those that really didn’t feel like work, and I was super pleased with the outcome, as well. It makes me sad I have to wait over a year for their wedding day.

When Christina approached me a few weeks prior to the shoot, she told me they loved old Kansas City architecture. I knew immediately where I wanted to shoot. Quality Hill is one of my favorite regions of downtown Kansas City, with it’s historic buildings, creeping ivy, and urban charm; it has that perfect mix of elegant details and sweeping city views. I couldn’t have asked for a better mix of great locations and great people!

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.

Wedding | Decked Out in Deco

After their original photographer revealed that her baby was due the week of their wedding, Halley and Chance took a chance on me. Speaking of which, Michael and I actually took bets on how many chance puns we’d encounter throughout the duration of the wedding day and it was only like two. So disappointing. I’ll refrain from here on out though, I promise.

Puns aside, I freaking loved this wedding. It was Art Deco themed, involved multiple historic locations, and because this couple is a wedding videography duo, they had everything prepped just as to should be. I knew I was gonna like these guys when I met Halley for the first time at her pre-wedding consultation and we spent basically an hour bitching about business. Ahhh kindred spirits. One major bummer was that they lost their ceremony site only a week before the wedding, so both ceremony and reception took place in the reception hall. In spite of this set back everything went very smoothly. They had a super fun wedding party that told some hilarious stories during speeches and everyone took part in a pretty epic dance party. To be honest, my images of all their friends dancing might be my favorite images of the entire wedding day.
