Ashley+Joe • Affinity Riverside Estate • Nixa, Mo • Wedding Photographer

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.

Here are a few of our favorites from Ashley and Joe’s wedding day at the Affinity Riverside Estate! Enjoy…

Miranda+Bart / / Wedding / / Ironhorse Golf Club / / Overland Park, Kansas

Things we love...Friends, Weddings, and Kansas City! So, when our friends Miranda and Bart asked us to photograph their wedding in Kansas City, we were over the moon! It means so much that this sweet couple put the all important task of awesome wedding photos in our hands, and we couldn't be more thrilled to share a few of our favorites from their wedding day. Miranda and Bart got married at the Ironhorse Golf Club in Overland Park. As you can see, this new venue is absolutely gorgeous and provided some breathtaking backdrops for portraits with the bride and groom. We started off hanging out with the bride for the first part of the day as she put the finishing touches on final wedding details and got hair and makeup. We did first look with bride and groom in the exact spot that they would soon say 'i do', and ventured out into the heat for a few portraits. I promised we would go fast, and they were some troopers. We all sweat a little bit but it was so worth it. We're in love with these few frames from Miranda and Bart's wedding. Enjoy...

Austin+Matt / / Northern California Redwoods Wedding / / Photographer

Austin and Matt got married in the Redwood Forest of Northern California this April, and there are not enough good words to say about this couple and the few days I got to spend with them and their family. I started this trip off with a flight to Eugene, Oregon. From there I drove down the coast to Crescent City, California where I met up with the happy couple and their family the night before the wedding. From the moment I arrived in the Pacific Northwest, I knew this wedding was going to be pure magic. Beauty surrounds you at every single turn. The day of the wedding, we started off by exploring some of the coastal areas around Crescent City, and arrived back to the hotel where the bride & groom were prepping for the coming nuptials. Once they were ready, Austin and Matt met on the beach for their first look. You could see and feel the excitement and emotion with each one of them when they saw each other for the first time. Matt mentioned how he was more nervous than expected and Austin told Matt that he needed to 'fix his pants'. Memories that won't soon be forgotten I'm sure. We headed from the beach straight into the forest to see the sweethearts say 'I do'. The spot that Austin and Matt picked out for their wedding was absolutely breath taking. It was a spot way out in the woods, totally secluded from the outside world. We hung around afterwards for some portraits as the sun beamed in through the Redwoods. We finished up on the beach for a few more shots at sunset, and then headed back into Crescent City to Seaquake Brewery to finish the day with some music, dancing, and libations. It was a perfect day. One for the ages. Here are just a few of our favorites from Austin and Matt's Redwood Forest Wedding.

Kayla+Jon / / Engagement

Engagement season is upon us and we are in love with this session. You can see how much Kayla & Jon love each other in every single frame. So much goodness! I met up with these two on the square in Lamar, Missouri. We shot for a while downtown, capturing some old buildings and weathered vines, and some of the history from the square, and then we headed to a nearby open field for sunset. Enjoy some of our favorites from Kayla & Jon's engagement shoot and leave them some love in the comments :) We can't wait for their wedding this fall at The Barn @ Timber Cove in Pittsburg!

Vera+Doug / / Roxy + Amelie Event Centers / / Joplin Wedding Photographer

Vera and Doug were our first November wedding this year at the Roxy and Amelie Event Center in Downtown Joplin. 

Today seems like just about as good of a day as any to share one of our favorite fall weddings ever! This day just felt flawless in every way. From hair and makeup to the venue, to the ceremony and reception, it was all a dream! The moody afternoon light created by a light sort of mist that hovered over us all day gave us that magic light we're always looking for as photographers. These two put so much thought and effort into creating a fun and memorable experience for their friends and family.  Every detail from the decorations, food and drink, down to the wedding program was thought over meticulously and it showed. The ceremony took place in an intimate setting at the Roxy in front of about 150 of their closest friends and family. After the ceremony, the newlywed's guests hung out socializing, having cocktails, and striking poses in The Shutter Bus while we got our wedding portrait session on. 

Vera and Doug's love story all got started on Tinder! After a few dates, they were engaged and the rest, as they say, is history! We just love that these two found each other. They are delightfully complimentary to each other, and love to laugh and have fun, which made our job as their photographers so easy! We are loving these two and the way their album is taking shape!

Kelsey+Craig / / Joplin Missouri Wedding Photography / / Roxy+Amelie

Kelsey and Craig got married this October 2017 in Downtown Joplin, Missouri at the Amelie Event Center.

We were on hand to capture this magical day through photo, video, & photo booth, so we definitely had our hands full, but this sweet couple made it so easy on us! Kelsey was stunning in her white wedding dress, and Craig looked absolutely dapper in his navy suit! 

Craig & Kelsey met online through a dating app. Kelsey had all but written off romance when Craig came along, so Craig had to be extra persistent to steal her attention :) Craig says that seeing her in pictures he thought she was the most beautiful thing he had ever seen! They got snowed in on their first date after Craig drove over an hour to see her in person for the first time, and the rest is history! 

Here are just a few of our very favorite moments from Kelsey and Craig's Wedding Day. Enjoy...

Travis+Kasey / / Engagement Photography Session

We explored the woods of southwest Missouri with Travis and Kasey for their fall engagement photoshoot! Travis is an old college buddy of mine so it was quite a treat getting to see and catch up with him after all these years, and of course meet his lovely fiancé Kasey, who I called Kelsey a few times on account of all our recent brides named Kelsey...but that's neither here nor there:) 

These two rocked their engagement session like some pros and we are loving their album. Here are just a few of our favorites from Travis and Kasey's Engagement Session.

Kelsey+Laramie

Kelsey+Laramie got married  this October at the Grand Lake Baptist Assembly in Grove, Oklahoma. 

The look on Laramie's face when he saw Kelsey for the first time coming down the aisle with her father was just priceless! She looked absolutely stunning in her wedding dress. The couple gathered in the huge assembly hall surrounded by their friends and family all seated at tables around them. After the wedding, we wandered the property with the sweet newlyweds exploring some covered wooded areas and various favorable lighting situations. These two absolutely rocked their portrait session and we are loving every frame. After the bride and groom's portrait session at sunset, we came back inside for the reception, which was complete with endearing speeches from the maid of honor and best man, and an insanely hilarious choreographed first dance with the bride and father of the bride. This day was magic and special in every way and we are so glad we got to be a part of it. Huge congrats to Kelsey and Laramie! 

Here are  70 or so of our very favorite moments from Kelsey & Laramie's wedding day. Hope you enjoy!
