Wedding | An Outdoor Wedding Adorned in Fall Foliage

There was a book I used to love reading as a child called The Bunnies’ Ball. It was about two children who went into the woods at night and witnessed a beautiful woodland dance held by the forest rabbits. Decorated archways, flower adornments, and clever use of firefly light provided the backdrop to this sweet fairy-tale. I couldn’t help but compare the setting of this story and the stunning design of Jodie and Anita’s intimate wedding. There was something so very enchanted about the presentation, but so very warm and inviting all the same. Held in a private clearing on Jodie’s parent’s land in Wichita, the ceremony space contained a beautiful archway entrance and alter; both adorned with fall foliage, flowers, and rustic lanterns. Having a wedding outdoors in late November always comes with a slight risk for poor weather, so tubs of blankets were made available to guests as they entered the ceremony space. The Reception was held in a nearby mental building which had been transformed by use of silk backdrops, fairly lights, votive candles, many many flowers, and a beautiful dessert buffet. It was all so very stunning (and quite delicious.)

I didn’t get the chance to meet with Jodie and Anita prior to their wedding day,as I worked closely with their planner instead; however, I was instantly at ease when we did finally meet. They were animal lovers for one, and didn’t seem to take themselves too seriously considering it was their wedding day. Having been together for twelve years, they referred to their wedding as a formality more than once. And what a formality it was! With sweet heartfelt personal vows, Jodie’s 90 year old grandfather officiating, and their young daughter to recess with them down the aisle they formally became partners for life.

Inspiration | Tea Party at The Vintage House

The Tea Party Styled Shoot might be my favorite of Ashley’s styled-shoots to date. I’ve always had a love of vintage and tea rooms. Both have a strong connection to my childhood, and so when this shoot came to be I jumped at the opportunity to participate. I might have bit off a little more than I could chew since this shoot took place during my busiest month of the year. I felt slightly indifferent going through the motions the day of. The thing about styled shoots though, especially those planned by someone else, is that they take you out of your comfort zone and you have to pay attention.


Being primarily shabby chic this particular location is a light and airy dreamscape. However, I’m not a light-airy photographer, or person for that matter. I scoff at antiqued furniture, chalk paint, and have the attention span of a gnat when it comes to diy projects. I watch shows about modernist architecture, and enjoy the sparseness of minimalist rooms. That all being said, there’s something utterly inviting about this space. I found myself naturally drawn to the dim lit rooms, patchwork quilts, and soft translucent curtains. It felt very familiar, like a hug from my grandmother; it created a distinct nostalgic response that I aimed to capture. I wanted my images to transcend the professionally decorated cottage decor and focus on the home, and rural warmth. But all that aside, I am HERE for Thirty One; Thirty’s designs! She nails it every time. Look at the cake table!

Wedding | Late Summer Celebration at Rustic, Winery + Vinyard

Emily & Aaron’s wedding couldn’t have been on a more beautiful day. Held at the brand new, and utterly gorgeous Bourgmont Vineyard and Winery, this wedding was elegant, moving, and playful.

Created from a converted horse stable, Bourgmont Vineyard’s rustic reception hall was filled with the most beautiful light throughout the entire day. It was a true photographer’s dream space. I was also able to take a few bride and groom portraits in the huge neighboring guest house, which included a ginormous living room picture window overlooking the Kansas hills, a beautiful staircase overlook, and moody library for some serious Wes Anderson vibes. The couple embraced their wine-centric surroundings and created their center pieces and cake stand from recycled wine bottles. They also incorporated their love of sports into the day, with a volley ball shaped wedding cake and a short game of one on one after the ceremony. Because naturally this place would also have a basket ball court.

This wedding was one of the more moving weddings I’ve attended. I’m not a crier, or one to gush over romantic gestures. Call me a cynic; call me cold. It’s fine. However, Emily and Aaron’s love for each other really resonated with me in way that felt so genuine and touching. During their first dance I nearly teared up, and that’s something I didn’t even do at my own wedding.

Wedding | Timelessness, Tradition, and Twinkle Lights

Celia and Chris’s traditional Catholic Mass and rustic Edison bulb filled reception was truly something to behold. They were seriously one of the sweetest couples I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Plus, these guys could dance, like seriously dance. They put even my best attempt at a Waltz to shame.

The entire day had a timelessness about it; as if the whole world was moving around us, but we were in a time space of our own. Maybe it was the couple’s classic beauty, the witnessing of traditions that are not my own, or maybe it was just because the reception venue lacked natural light. Whatever it was, I’m so pleased I was there to capture it all. The ceremony was beautiful and moving. (Although both my second and I were a bit thrown off by the omission of the kiss.) The reception was quaint and warm. I even got to go back to Ted Ensley Gardens with these two, which is quickly becoming my absolutely favorite place to shoot. Also, did I mention they honeymooned in Tuscany? Cause they honeymooned in Tuscany. *long envious exhale*

Wedding | A Contemporary, Fine Art Wedding

Kim & Stacy's modern, fine art wedding at The Kemper Museum was gorgeous. When they booked me for this wedding I felt a particular kinship to it, mostly because for four years I studied and created across the street from it. I even dragged Kim & Stacy over the foundation and ceramics' buildings for a quick photo op.
