Wedding | A Woodland Celtic Celebration with Fairytale Whimsy

It was almost exactly a year ago that I was sending Samantha photographer recommendations. I was a little bit out of budget so I gathered some options and we parted ways. A few months later she was still without a photographer and asked her friend Anna for recommendations. Turns out Anna was a former college classmate of mine, and decided to send her my website. Samantha decided to take the plunge and booked me shortly thereafter. Oh my my my am I ever glad she did!

Samantha and Brock teach abroad in Myanmar for most of the year, and over the course of their first year of marriage they will get married three times in three different countries. I was fortunate enough to get to capture wedding number two, right here in Missouri. Held at the whimsical and wooded Paradise Park, we had so much fun exploring the woods, streams and rustic structures that make up this gorgeous secluded venue.

I’m generally not the fairy tale wedding type, but this fairy tale is one I could get behind. With Celtic traditions, a hand tying, a gorgeous custom gown, and so many potted plants I seriously cannot get over the beauty of their wedding day. I wish them all the best at their next and final wedding in Canada!

Wedding | An Emerald Green, Rose Gold Wedding and Woodsy Day After Session

I was salty as hell the week leading up to this wedding because my husband got to go to Orlando for work, and I could’ve gone with him but I had to stay home. I had multiple weddings and shoots throughout the week, concluding with this one. In retrospect, I have to laugh at myself a little because if I’d gone I would’ve missed out on one of my absolute favorite weddings to date - this one!

First off, I love Lauren and Justin! I vibed so well with them last year during our first meeting and their engagement session; they are such a warm, laid back, and fun loving pair, you really can’t not like them. Aside from these two, their family and small bridal party were equally as warm and easygoing. Together they created a day that was absolutely perfect for them; a private vow exchange, a receiving line, heart felt toasts, and surprise guests! A team of kick vendors was also assembled to make their day absolutely beautiful and run perfectly; some of my favorite details included the string quartet, the balloon sculpture, and their gorgeous cake. I’m a little biased because dark green is my favorite color (gee, who would’ve thought?) and their colors, modeled after their rings, were emerald green and rose gold. I’ve never been so in love with so many aspects of one day.

Two days later we met again to shoot a Day After session in stunning Burr Oak Woods. Burr Oak is by far my favorite photography location in the area, and I was elated at the opportunity to finally get to shoot a bride and groom beneath that looming canopy of trees. Day After sessions are something I truly hope become more common for those who don’t want a first look. They allow much more time for portraits at a more relaxed pace, away from the wedding day rush and 100+ guests waiting on dinner. My husband and I too, opted for a Day After session when he was adamant we not see each other before the wedding, and to this day they are my favorite pictures of us. While I don’t know how Lauren and Justin feel personally about it, I would say what we captured on that second day was by far worth the extra time and effort to create even more absolutely epic images.

I have to point out that this post doesn’t really show everything I would’ve liked to (those damn, file restrictions!) So jump over to my featured weddings on my weddings page to view a more expanded collection of images from this day!

Inspiration | A Vibrant & Fun Paradise Park Wedding

What started as a bit of a joke and a little misunderstanding between Paper-Heart Events and myself, ended up becoming one of the coolest styled shoots I’ve been a part of. This shoot was more of a passion project, so to speak. I’d been really itching to do something entirely out of the box wedding wise, and this super fun, laid back, arcade/amusement park shoot was just the ticket. (100% pun intended.)

Moree of Paper-Heart pretty much took the wheel on this one since she’d worked at the location for several years in high school, and already had several contacts at Paradise Park. None of this would’ve been possible without the management’s generosity in use of their facility. Moree also joined forces with the gorgeous owners of Luxxe Apparel. The shop owners provided all of the styling and even joined us the day of the shoot as our models! Wild Peony Studio, Fowlerhouse Films, and Salon Chressin also joined the shoot to provide all finishing touches and a super fun video of the day. I can’t thank these guys enough for bringing this vision to life!

Wedding | An Intimate, Spring Mansion Reception & Second Ceremony

Super jealous over this one because I’m entirely convinced that this is exactly how my wedding should’ve gone- a private elopement for close family and a fun filled reception with friends- and in a venue I considered nonetheless! This shoot took place only two days before my own wedding anniversary so it was on my mind to say the least.

Cassie and Till were married in their current city of San Diego prior to me capturing their Kansas City reception, and short staged ceremony at The Simpson House. I absolutely loved all the details and laid back vibe of the festivities. They had friends perform songs, play instruments, and give speeches throughout the evening, which quickly became one of the most entertaining receptions I’ve experienced.

The thing I enjoyed the most about this wedding was that I was given the freedom to just create and capture at will. Cassie was upfront about wanting candid shots over posed images, and enjoyed my photo journalistic approach to events. With this post I choose to include more candid images, rather than those of the ceremony. This wedding was very much about the gathering and experience, over that of traditional wedding day happenings; it was about family, entertainment, and love. Of course, I had to steal Cassie and Till away to get a few shots of them alone in front of the gorgeous venue regardless.

Wedding | A Romantic, Chapel Wedding and Emotional First Look

Krista and Aras are one of those couples I’m sad to see their wedding pass by. I’d been working with them since October of 2017, and they were one of the first large weddings I booked after launching my website. Their wedding was every bit worth the year and a half long wait.

Held at the historic and unique Deleon Chapel, this wedding was as elegant as it could be. With custom engraved champagne flutes, a gorgeous muted pink and white color pallet, and the most emotional first look I’ve yet to witness. This entire group also totally killed it on the dance floor. Just look at those moves!
