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!

Wedding | An Urban, Rainy Day Wedding in the KC Westbottoms

I really enjoyed Matthew and Joey’s West-bottoms wedding day! I had only shot in the area once prior and didn’t venture too far from that venue. These two, however, were one of those rare couples that actually used a spreadsheet to compare tons of local photographers - giving them ratings based on certain aspects. (Oh to see those spreadsheets…. ) Regardless, I was lucky enough to make it to the top, and was excited that photography was such a priority!

Rain or shine, I was determined to force these two out to get those super symmetrical, architectural, wide shots for which I’m known. Unfortunately, the former occurred, so I doubt it was the most pleasant pre-ceremony photo shoot they could’ve experienced, but they grabbed some umbrellas and set out anyway. Those images are easily some of my favorite wedding day portraits to date. The rain cast low hanging fog over the area, diffusing the sunlight and creating a beautiful grey-blue ambiance. The graffiti covered walls and paint chipped buildings provided surprising pops of colors to an overall dreary day. I even forced the entire bridal party out into the street for a few quick shots between rain showers, while my second shooter and I exchanged turns watching the traffic.

The ceremony was also beautifully lit. I’ve always loved candlelight and apparently so did they. They choose to have a reverse unity candle lighting, which causes everyone present to have a lit candle; the last two to have their candles lit are the couple and each person’s is lit by the opposite person’s parents. It’s the only unity ceremony I’ve witnessed that you could really feel. I don’t mean that in the literal sense, being that it could actually burn you. (Which it totally could and if you don’t like fire I definitely don’t recommend it.) I loved how it caused the room to slowly illuminate as more and more candles were set aglow.

The rest of the wedding day went on as usual until mid-first dance when my primary camera body stopped working for seemingly no reason. Luckily, I had a kick ass second shooter to take temporary charge while I grabbed my second body. (This is why you hire professionals people! For anyone interested: I fixed the camera two days later. It was an electrical issue concerning the battery grip I was using. I’ve had no issues with it since.) Overall this effected nothing aside from my fried nerves. I quickly got back into shooting because o.m.g. these guys could party. It was probably one of the most consistently lively dance parties I’ve witnessed at a wedding! The grand exit was a massive sparkler send off, and we all watched as the newly weds drove off into the night.

Wedding | A Winter Wedding and Rocking Reception

Alisa and Andy were such a pleasure to work with from the first time I met them at a little coffee shop over a year ago, to the hugs we exchanged as I departed their wedding. They were so much fun and great to get to know! I loved their unexpected interest in minimal industrial spaces, and no I don’t mean picturesque urban backdrops interspersed throughout work sites and train tracks and dilapidated buildings; I mean literal plants and machinery, blank walls and parking lots. I shot their engagement session inside The Roasterie plant last year, and their bride and groom portraits over looking the Boulevard Brewing plant and outside at night in the parking lot. I loved how each shoot really lent a hand to the other.

The entire wedding day start to end was incredibly elegant and well executed, as was to be expected; they had an insane team of vendors on board to bring this day to life and boy, did they. They also choose two of the most beautiful spots to celebrate, their own church (which, I mean, look at it.) and Boulevard Brewing Co.’s event space which was beautiful and provided an absolute epic few of the city at night. It was the perfect blend of traditional and modern. They also hired a live cover band and apparently have great taste in music. At first I thought the band just had a thing for 70s and 80s classics (intermixed with a few modern gems) but then at the end of the night I overheard the band thanking the couple for picking such a unique set for them to play. My one regret is not getting one of their favors. They had one of the engagement photos I took vectorized and engraved onto the side of beer glasses. (Pictures below.) It was maybe my favorite favor I’ve ever seen.

Wedding | Industrial Chic Wedding on a Warm Winter's Day

My first wedding of 2019 is not one I will soon forget. The wedding was held on an uncharacteristically warm January day. The temperature was in the low 60s, allowing us the ability to take portraits anywhere and everywhere outside. I’m probably somewhat biased because I have a mild obsession with urban-industrial weddings— the structure, the raw material, the elegance, the ease in framing the composition— but I knew when I first met Jon and Whitney that they had great style. There were so many details I loved about this wedding. Graffiti peeked in through the back window serving as the backdrop for the ceremony space, dark and rusted metal walls surrounded a bricked over courtyard for their formal portraits, and their muted winter color pallet added a touch of softness and elegance to the urban surroundings. It was very hard to choose favorites for this post because I enjoyed so much of their day.

Beyond their great style, these two are great people. In lieu of favors they choose to have guests create care packages which would be distributed to in need individuals. They also included Jon’s young sons in the ceremony, and delivered personal vows to them as well. Let’s not forget the reception, which included live performances by friends, karaoke, and a dance party. I watched as a grown man deliver the most kick ass routine to N’SYNC’s Bye Bye Bye I’ve ever seen. Apparently he’d known the choreography for over 10 years. Best thing I’ve ever witnessed at a reception, hands down.

Wedding | An Elegant Vintage Wedding at Armour Loft

Toni and Adam’s elegant vintage inspired, late evening wedding was my last big wedding of 2018. Illuminated predominately by string lights and candelabras, and adorned with greenery, the aura of the space felt very old world glamour with a few modern twists; a cake covered with icing succulents, glowing Chinese lanterns, stark white backdrops, and a great reception playlist. The couple had taken me to tour the space prior to the wedding, and I can definitely attest to the fact that their decor truly brought the venue to life- it didn’t even feel like the same place by the time I saw it on their wedding day. One of my favorite touches was a mantel clock placed at the center of the head table; only a close second to the marquee which was so unbelievable fun to shoot beneath. The night was concluded with the most beautiful sparkler exit I’ve ever captured. They truly made my 2018 wedding season go out with a bang.
