You might remember Jess and Landon’s lovely wedding this spring at the courthouse — it was one of the most heartfelt and simple ceremonies that I’ve ever had the honor of photographing. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when they celebrated their new marriage with family and friends with a laid-back barbecue at Black Jack Hills in Manhattan, KS.

If you’re planning your upcoming wedding, be sure to make the time for portraits of just the two of you, as you’re scheduling your wedding day. You’ll be able to enjoy a few quiet moments with your new spouse, catch your breath, and remember why you’re surrounded by all your favorite people  — who are there to celebrate you! We found just the right opportunity during their reception to step outside for a few portraits.

I got to meet their awesome dog, Django…

Then we let him roam for a bit while we made magic in the late summer sunshine.

While the sounds of the couple’s favorite band hummed in the distance, mixed with the joyful sound of kids playing nearby, all the attention was on the two of them and this moment, surrounded in sunlight and so much love. Is there anything more perfect than pure happiness?

Happy Friday! Are you excited for the long weekend? 🙂 Let’s kick it off with a bang today with Deneige and Charlie’s gorgeous wedding!

Deneige and Charlie were married on a picture-perfect day a couple of weeks ago. It’s safe to say everyone had kept their eye on the sky all week long, just to be sure we didn’t need to pack a few extra umbrellas. But the morning skies gave way to a beautifully warm August day, which is exactly what we had all hoped for. Hooray for sunshine!

Their celebration was full of gorgeous details, from the bride’s “something old” and the touches of blue throughout the day, to their gifts to their guests of custom-labeled wine at the reception. And I think I’m still awed by their incredibly talented friends busting out Whitney Houston songs on the bus between the ceremony and reception. (Seriously talented!) Flowers were everywhere with gorgeous arrangements from Steve’s Floral — they totally knocked it out of the park for their ceremony at Seven Dolors and the reception by the Manhattan Country Club. And the beautiful cakes created by
4 Cakes! I love working with so many amazing local partners, because every detail is complete perfection.

What caught my breath so many times throughout the day was the incredible tribe of support and love from both their family and friends. It’s truly a testament to the kind of amazing, warm, thoughtful people that they are.

Deneige & Charlie, I can’t thank you enough for allowing me to be part of this most amazing day for you. And thank you for sharing your love and happiness with everyone around you — your warmth and love inspire us all. Cheers!

Happy Wednesday!

It’s with big excitement that I get to share Brett and Hope’s Winfield, Kansas wedding with you today! When we photographed their beautiful Konza Prairie engagement portraits last fall, I knew this was going to be a spectacular day filled with friends & family, love, and TONS of beautiful country chic details. Their vision for the day was amazing! Burlap, bling, and so many handmade touches made their Winfield, Kansas wedding venue at Quail Valley Farms totally come alive.

The whole day was filled with golden, glowing sunshine and the sounds of spring from beginning to end. We were completely surrounded by beautiful details AND happy people. It was such fun seeing Brett and Hope’s friends re-unite and having their families gather to celebrate their love! As we were driving home, I looked at my lovely sidekick (who I might add, was my glorious second shooter for the day, ahem) and was completely overwhelmed with gratitude to be part of it all. Here’s a few highlights from their day:

It’s such a treasure to me when a client becomes a friend — but when a friend becomes a client, I’m even more honored to be trusted to share and document one of the most important days of their life. (If that’s even possible!) Brett and Hope, thank you from the bottom of my heart, and I wish you a lifetime of happiness and laughter!
Cheers!
