Olivia and Matt got married at The Hudson in Wichita, Kansas. This wedding was our last one of the year, and we can’t think of a more perfect couple to end a busy wedding season on. Give me all the winter brides & winter weddings. We are absolutely in love with these newlyweds and their wedding photos. Although it was a tad bit on the cold side, these love birds and their wedding party were up for all my crazy ideas trekking through the brick laid streets around The Hudson. This venue and the area surrounding was a ‘photo-opportunity-rich’ environment. Seriously this is one of our favorite places to shoot and we can’t wait to come back. Here is the first look at a few of our favorite frames from Olivia and Matt’s Wichita Wedding!

There are many great joys that come with being a photographer, but one of the greatest is getting to see our wedding couples again for family photo sessions.

Ashley pulled off the perfect prank on Josh when it was time for him to see her for the first time.
The groom, Josh busted into laughter when he was expecting to see his soon to be bride Ashley and turned to see one of his groomsmen standing beside him in a white wedding gown. Typically, we have the groom face away until the bride arrives and taps him on the shoulder, which is exactly how Josh thought everything was going down. Instead he got the shock of his lifetime when he turned to see his groomsmen that he had been looking for the better part of the last hour. When Ashley asked if we would be up for a prank like this, our answer was a resounding ‘YES’. Although we new the prank would be taking place, we did not know that Josh (groomsmen) was going to be so dang funny doing it. He hammed it up all the way down the walkway, strutting his stuff and blowing kisses at the groom, and showing a little leg at one point. Luckily our faces were hidden by cameras to conceal us laughing under our breath. We are so happy Ashley chose us to capture this priceless wedding day moment! See how it all unfolded below.
Ridley is turning one year old, so it was definitely time for some cake! Here are a few favorites from his first birthday cake smash.

Sarah & Colin are one of our 2019 wedding couples. When they contacted us about shooting their wedding, we couldn’t wait to do their engagement session.

Ada and Adam got married on Mulberry Mountain in Northwest Arkansas. I can’t think of a more perfect setting than the mountains of Northwest Arkansas for this sweet couple to get married. An intimate ceremony overlooking the valleys below, full of all the fall colors, with one of our very favorite couples just sets our hearts on fire. You can really see the time and effort put into the details of this wedding. Absolutely everything was done with a thoughtful touch from the golden dinosaurs to the bride’s stunning bouquet. Ada’s wedding dress is one of the absolute coolest dresses we have ever seen, with beautiful blues, greens, orange & red flowing up from the bottom, and the look on Adam’s face when he sees her for the first time, coming down the aisle, being led by one of their beloved pups, is absolutely priceless. These two are a perfect fit for each other, and you can see it in the love and emotion they shared on this day. It really comes through in their portraits.
Here are a few of our favorites from Ada and Adam’s wedding day! Enjoy…

Ashley and Joe got married at the Affinity Riverside Estate in Nixa, Missouri. This wedding was perfect in every way and we have been anxiously awaiting getting to edit and share these pictures for our friends Ashley + Joe.
Let’s start with the venue. We have only had the pleasure of capturing weddings at The Affinity Riverside Estate twice, but we can’t wait for the chance to go back. There is a waterfall running through the middle of the property that leads back to one of the most fabulous outdoor wedding spots we ever laid eyes on. Beautifully constructed wooden benches nestled perfectly in the surrounding forest. Directly behind is 3 stories of decking (including an outdoor dance floor) that overlooks the ceremony area, providing the perfect perch to watch the ceremony, take in the air, or get your dance on! Seriously, this is as good a place as any to say ‘i do’.
Now let’s get to Ashley and Joe. I got to meet these sweethearts when we did their engagement shoot a while back down on commercial street in Springfield. There was coffee, there was beer. Enough said! Within minutes I could tell that this couple was truly in love and couldn’t wait to get married, and I was over the moon that they had chosen me to be the one to capture that love. Getting to watch them get married and join their families together, seeing the love for each other and their sweet kiddos was honestly perfect. And just wait until you hear their vows. Not a dry eye in the house.

Sarah and Jory got married at the Hazeltine Estate in Springfield, Missouri. This wedding was basically a favorites list. One of our favorite couples ever at one of our favorite venues during our favorite time of year. The list goes on! The Hazeltine Estate is a photographer’s playground. There is so much to see and do there, from the lush greenery all around the property, spacious and well thought out bride & groom suites, endless options for ceremonies, a chandelier hanging from a tree, a sweet rope swing. OH, and a pool! Sarah & Jory’s wedding was one for the ages and one that won’t soon be forgotten.
We had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know Sarah & Jory a little bit back months ago during their engagement session. We knew then that they were so nice and fun to be around that we were going to love their wedding day! Our day started out getting ready with the bride and groom in their separate areas, where we got all of the getting ready and detail shots. Sarah in the bridal loft over the barn and Jory in the basement bar area across the property. After we caught our breath from seeing Sarah in her dress for the first time, it was time for Jory to do the same. The couple met for the first time on their wedding day down a long walk way underneath the trees. The look on Jory’s face was priceless when he turned and saw Sarah for the first time. After a long emotional hug and a few words, it was time for portraits. The bridesmaids stunned in their sage bridesmaid dresses, while the groomsmen looked dapper in grey pants, white shirts, and leather bow ties with matching suspenders and shoes. After exploring all the property had to offer for bridal party portraits, it was time for a quick ceremony, and then on to the reception. The wedding reception took place underneath a tent on the property, where the newlyweds along with friends and family danced the night away. Blacksheep was on hand serving up burgers and fries throughout the night which kept all of the wedding guests happy. About midway through the night, we were all treated to a huge fireworks show put together by Sarah’s dad. We had so much fun with these two on their wedding day and are so excited to share a few of our favorite images. Enjoy!
