Chapman Family

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. We had the pleasure of photographing Amy & Jordan’s wedding and just love their little family. Here are a few of our favorites from the Chapman family photo session.

Sarah+Jory • Haseltine Estate • Wedding Photographer • Springfield, Missouri

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!

Sydney+George / / Wedding / / Downstream / / Joplin, Missouri / / Photographer

Sydney and George got married this June at Downstream Casino. We are so excited to finally blog this wedding. These sweethearts have been waiting patiently as we edit their photos and they are finally done! 

This day started out capturing all the pre wedding details in the bridal/groom suites at Downstream. Sydney & I then headed down to meet George where he was waiting on the lawn under a beautifully overcast sky waiting for his bride. George has an identical twin so we were in for a little scare when Nick (Geroge's twin) met us as we got off the elevator heading for first look! My heart skipped a beat.....200 or so weddings and not one blown first look and I thought that might have been the end of that streak :/ lol. Sydney approached George slowly and finally he got to see his bride for the first time in her dress. George's emotion as he spun and saw Sydney said it all! This man and woman are deeply in love and I am so thankful I was there to capture it all! This day, this couple, this wedding was perfect! See how their day unfolded in about 120 or so of our favorite frames from Sydney and George's wedding day! 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...

Randi+Dylan / / Proposal

I wish all the photoshoots could end in a sweet proposal like this one. I met Randi and Dylan in California a few short weeks ago while photographing Austin + Matt's wedding. Dylan pulled me aside during the wedding reception and asked about possibly photographing his proposal in the coming weeks. We talked a little bit about their relationship and how long they had been together. Dylan told me he's had the ring for a while but just hadn't found the right time to propose. So when we got back to Joplin, we got together to scout a location for a quick photoshoot with the plan being for him to propose at the end. I just love the look on Randi's face at the end. This photoshoot/proposal was so much fun:) Here's a few of our favorite frames from this 'shoot. 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.
