Bride & Groomsman Epic Prank on Groom

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.

Sarah+Colin • Engagement

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. We explored a bit of downtown Joplin and then headed south of town to see what the countryside had in store for us. Here are just a few of our favorites from Sarah and Colin’s Engagement photo album.

Ada+Adam • Mulberry Mountain, Arkansas • Wedding Photographer

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…

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...

Jill+Chase / / Wedding / / Pierce City, Missouri / / Photographer

Jill and Chase got married last month at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Pierce City, Missouri. I can't tell you the amount of joy it brings me to have another photographer ask me to photograph their wedding. What a tremendous honor! This day began with me flying the drone around and location scouting around the venue. The church was surrounded with beautiful green shade trees, and a creek that flowed through the property, making portraits a dream. Jill+Chase were such a great couple to work with. I love the way she looks at him. One look and you know that they are truly deeply connected and in love. His reaction to seeing her in her dress for the first time during their first look was just something that I'm so happy we were able to capture the raw emotion of that moment in a way that they can re-live over and over again throughout their lives. Here's about 100 or so of our favorite frames from Jill and Chase's wedding day. Enjoy :)

Maranda+Brayden / / Wedding / / Silver Spoon Barn / / Webb City, Missouri / / Photographer

Maranda and Brayden got married this April 2018 at The Silver Spoon Barn in Webb City, Missouri. We started out this day checking out this cool barn since we hadn't worked the venue before. As barns go, this one is pretty dang fabulous. Immaculate wood work and construction on the interior made this place a gorgeous setting for a spring wedding. We got to spend a little time hanging out with the bride and groom and their wedding party as they finished up their process of getting ready, and then met for the first look in the aisle that they would soon be walking down as husband and wife. Watching the two of them see each other for the first time was so sweet! The anticipation and emotion of such a huge wedding day moment really comes through in these photos. Though it was a tad on the cold side, we headed outdoors for a quick portrait session. Then it was time for a quick wedding ceremony, and then off to the reception where the newlyweds grabbed a quick bite, fed each other some cake, and danced the night away with their closest friends and family! Here's about 90 of our favorite frames from Maranda + Brayden's Wedding...Enjoy!
