It was a beautiful weekend this past Saturday for Brock and Sophia's wedding at Abe & Jakes Landing in Lawrence, KS. Yes it was a little warm but Abe and Jakes was a beautiful indoor location for both the ceremony and reception. It has a great old world/rustic type charm to it with lots of character. I loved watching Brock and Sophie all day as they just were so cute and in love. Here are a couple photos from their special day!
Andrew and Tessa were wed last weekend at the Cathedral of the Plains in Victoria Kansas. If you haven't ever been to that church, it's quite a site to see. It is listed as the 8th wonder of Kansas. Tessa looked so gorgeous in her beautifully embellished gown. Being the country loving couple they are, after the ceremony we traveled out into the country so we could get some photographs with her bridal party with a country/barn feel to them. Their reception was at the Rose Garden Ball Room in Hays, Kansas. Kacy with Wedding Connections did a superb job with all the flowers, and Kari Haas created a beautiful and tasty cake. Everyone had such a great time! Here are a few photos from their wedding day.
What a lovely couple Matt and Kelli are! I really enjoyed working with them both for their engagement shoot and for their wedding this past Saturday. Kelli planned a nice 2+ hours of time after the ceremony for us to drive all over Kansas City. We were able to go to the Liberty Memorial for a view of Union Station, Kauffman Performing Arts Center, and to the West Bottoms for some more great textures for photography. Their reception took place at Boulevard Brewery in Downtown KC, which also has an awesome view from the balcony in which we took advantage of at night for a few more dramatic shots.
Thanks again Matt and Kelli for choosing me to photograph your wedding! Here is a little sneak peek of their day.
Sometimes it's fun to have the opportunity to help another photographer out, and to photograph something that isn't always so common for myself. This past weekend I had the opportunity to assist another photographer to shoot a quinceanera. I shoot so many weddings, a lot of the skills are very similar, however the traditions are so very different. Just thought I'd share a few of the photos I took. This is a service that I can also provide to clients so if you happen to come across this post and are looking for a photographer for your daughters quinceanera, or a photographer for a bar mitzvah, I can provide event coverage for those events too!
To say that I enjoyed working with Jake and Shelbie would be an understatement. They were one of the kindest couples I've ever had the honor to work with along with all their family and friends. Even though we were shooting their portraits outside in temps with wind chills well below freezing, and even though I could see them physically shivering, no one complained and enjoyed themselves so the couple could get some of the outdoor shots they wanted. Oh and of course they are a beautiful couple which made things that much easier! Their wedding was held at the beautiful St. Fidelis Catholic church in Victoria, Kansas and their reception at the Schenk building in Hays. Congrats again to Jake and Shelbie, and a big Happy Birthday to Shelbie who's birthday is Today! Here are a few photos from their wonderful day. - Oh and take a look at those dance moves they had, they had a fantastic choreographed 1st dance!
