Inspiration | Dark and Moody at Weddings Unveiled KC

Last Sunday I was one of several hand picked vendors selected to showcase at Wedding’s Unveiled KC, a bridal event hosted by EA Bride. I am not a bridal fair gal for sure. I’d never been to one nor have I ever shown at one prior. I was intrigued by this event in particular because each participating vendor had to have an interactive element to their booth (I was shooting some fierce engagement rings all day), and there were two live wedding shoots which vendors could take part. So naturally I jumped on that opportunity.

This shoot went fast. I think I shot over the course of maybe thirty minutes, which is insane. Traditionally we think of styled shoots as perfectly controlled and secluded, but this was performative and public. I shot away as couples surrounded us taking videos and watching intently. It was an invigorating experience and well worth the effort.

Thanks so much to EA Bride for the opportunity and all the talented vendors that made this shoot happen!

Inspiration | Boho Vibes and 70s Nostalgia

I’d been dreaming of this shoot for over a year. Right after I shot my first styled shoot at Jansen Place I started a mood board for this shoot. Inspired by my mother, I wanted to create a wedding that embraced her style, personality, and era of her youth. So naturally a whimsical, boho 1970s themed elopement was my choice. A year later, its finally finished and I couldn’t be more pleased.

It was an odd process bringing this shoot to life. I knew I wanted a Donna’s Dress Shop gown for starters. I found my own vintage reception dress there as a bride and loved the nostalgic, romantic feel of their wedding collection. I met Thor a few months later and knew immediately he would be the perfect groom for this shoot. For a long time I walked around with only those two details in my head. One particular problem was location. I couldn’t picture it. I knew what is wasn’t, but not exactly what it was. The day I walked into John’s Greenhouse I knew I’d found my venue. Still I stalled on beginning the process. It wasn’t until Katelynn Treolo approached me about collaborating a few weeks later that I started coordinating this shoot for real.

After settling on the greenhouse, everything else fell quickly into place. Erin was an obvious choice for the bride, although having never modeled before, her look and easy going attitude were absolutely perfect for what I had envisioned. Luckily for me, she agreed to take part! Professional creatives & friends I’d known for years stepped forward to provide jewelry, stationary, and hair design. I found the perfect macrame backdrop after checking with damn near every rental company in town. It barely fit in the space, but complimented the shoot so well. Lastly, I managed to get my favorite local cake baker and florist to take part. About a week before the shoot I realized I hadn’t contacted anyone about providing dinnerware. I thought on it and grabbed my grandparent’s blue floral china for a crowning personal touch; a set of dishes I knew my mother cherished as well.

I didn’t give a whole lot of direction design wise. I had a vague mood board filled with random images that conveyed more of a feeling, rather something specific. I choose my vendors based on their style and consistency in their field. I trusted them, and they trusted me. The over collaboration, and comradery of the group the day of the shoot was beautiful. (Seriously though. Hire these people! ) I cannot thank them enough for their time and talent.

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.

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.

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!
