The Kinzers | Sunflower Shoot

From engagements to wedding and now as a little family, the Kinzers are always a joy to photograph, and now that little Elliot is in the picture, these two just got even more adorable. Also, Elliot's many faces cracked me up the whole time. He is quite the character! Here are some fun shots in a sunflower field in Kansas.

Korie + Kaleb | A Missouri Wedding Story

Korie and Kaleb were married under the trees in rural Missouri surrounded by family and friends on a beautiful September day. Korie's grandparents hosted this event by opening up their home and land to all of us to gather and celebrate and it couldn't have been a more perfect setting. They became husband and wife as well as a family of four. This was one of the most lively and loving wedding stories that I got to be apart of and I am so excited to share their story with you.

Melissa + Tyler | Engagement

Meet Melissa and Tyler. We all went to Pittsburg State University as art majors in Porter Hall, where these two met and where my love for photography began. Years later here we are again in Pittsburg, KS. shooting their engagement photos in the very places they fell for one another. It's funny to think back to seeing these two always sitting next to each other in Art History classes as friends, having no idea that one day they would call me to be their wedding photographer. Now these guys are living in California where they will get married under the red woods. I CANNOT wait!  

Here are a few of my favorite frames from their engagement in the small Kansas town were it all began.

Savanna + Nathan | A Desert in the Midwest

I love this location so much, so I was thrilled when Savanna and Nathan wanted to use it for their 6 year anniversary pictures...which I think they make this place look even better. These two were so fun to be around and I just love how their pictures came out. So much giddiness, laughter and after 6 years of marriage still so much love for each other that truly shows. 

Here's to another 6 years and many many more!

Jordan + Austin | A June Wedding

So it's obvious that this wedding was beyond gorgeous and so was everyone involved, but this wedding was so much more than that. From the get go it was all about family, friends and true moments of love and celebration between all of them, a very tight knit group from the midwest.

That morning, Jordan gave all her bridesmaids, her family, even the groomsmen heartfelt gifts and cards, that moved almost everyone to tears ( including myself! I couldn't take it! ) Truly a bride that exudes beauty on the inside and the outside and cares about everyone around her. Both Jordan and Austin do! Seriously one of the nicest, most generous, loving couples I've met. It's so touching to watch the way Austin looks at Jordan. The love and respect he has for her is so moving and something so many look for in a partner. They are both extremely blessed to have found each other. 

This wedding was full of love, laughter and tears. I hope it shows in this set.

Ashten + Austin | Joplin Wedding

So happy to finally get back to the swing of things since our move to Kansas City this last Saturday! AND so happy to finally have internet at my new place. This wedding was one of the most laid back weddings I have ever been apart of, with two of the easiest going couples. It was also my first Catholic wedding that took place in such a gorgeous church in downtown Joplin, MO. followed by a camp site for the reception where we got some awesome shots on a massive bridge in the forest. Ashten and Austin are easily one of my best couples that are not only amazing in front of the camera, but made sure they had hours of time to shoot after their ceremony, so we had tons of time to play around with the camp site. Such a fun wedding that I am so glad I got to be apart of. All the best to you both!

Korie + Kaleb | Engagements

I am so stoked to be working with such a beautiful and fun loving couple this year! We went on a two day excursion to Arkansas and hit up Beaver Lake and Devil's Den. Here are just a few of my favorites out of so many more. Looking so forward to their September wedding!

The Toscanos | Newborn

Happy Thursday! I wanted to get some blog posts up before the week was over and wanted to start off with this adorable lifestyle/newborn session! I rarely get to do these, but I hope to get a chance to do a lot more in the home type of work. It just adds so much more meaning to the photos and a personal touch. 

I shot Jordan and Max's maternity session and then shortly after Tucker was already here! Don't you love his little outfit?! He was probably the most calm baby I have ever been around and I have really enjoyed getting to know his parents as well! 

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
