Macy + Conner | Wedding

Macy and Conner’s rainy wedding day back in April was one for the books! It literally rained the entire day without letting up at all. But these two were so awesome at rolling with the punches, and totally willing to expose their wedding attire to the elements. We started at the Ambassador in downtown Wichita for getting ready photos, and then went over to the church where they had their first look and some family photos. After their ceremony, we took the party bus to a nearby location with these gorgeous blooming pink trees and over to the Boathouse to take advantage of the covered white porch for photos. Then it was on to the reception where there was tons of good food, dessert, laughing, dancing, and fun for the rest of the night. Congrats to these lovebirds, and thank you for allowing Adam and I to capture your day! See the film Adam made of their big day, linked at the end.

Ashlynn + Trevor | Engaged

I had so much fun with Ashlynn and Trevor last month, thinking up all kinds of ways to get them to laugh (and if you look at the photos, it worked!). They are young and sweet and in love, and I’m so excited for their wedding next year. And get this crazy connection: Ashlynn’s mom was my husband’s 5th grade teacher…AND…when Trevor was a kid, his parents and my parents were in a church small group together. Isn’t that crazy town? We could’ve set them up when they were 3 years old if Adam and I had just known each other back then. 😉 Ha! Enjoy their fun session!

Tonya + Chad | Wedding

How to even begin describing what an amazing night this was! Tonya and Chad were married on 7-7 and became a family of 7 that day. They are the sweetest, most considerate people and I knew their wedding day was going to be one for the books. It was a backyard affair, complete with a bounce house, black + white checkered dance floor, bar in a silo, and an awesome fireworks finale. They made vows to each other and to each other’s children, they broke out into a choreographed dance with all their kids after their first dance, and they even hired a street taco truck to feed the crowd. Every detail was so thought out and it was such a joy to see Tonya and Chad become one that day. Congrats to the newlyweds and thank you THANK YOU for choosing me to capture this beautiful night for you two!

Ty + Kaitlin | Engaged

This session was back in May, but these two are actually getting married THIS weekend, in Colorado. So excited for them, and can’t wait to see photos of what is sure to be a gorgeous day. We had lots of fun on this May evening…everything was so green and lush at our location, and since Ty is the big brother of one of my close friends, it was fun getting to know him a little better. Congrats to Ty and Kaitlin, I hope your wedding day is amazing!

Katie + Tyler | Engaged

These two are just the best! So fun, so in love, and so laughy. Is laughy a word? I love all of the genuine smiles and the joy that shows up in these photos. Katie and Tyler are so good together, and they made me feel like an old friend during their session. I’m so excited for their December wedding…I’m sure the landscape will look very different than it did here, on the last day of April!

Renny + Will | Engaged

This couple has a lot of things going for them in my books. First and most obvious – I love Renny’s name. We often call my son Ren “Renny” so as soon as I started talking with Renny about her wedding, I definitely sent her a video of my Ren saying “Hi Renny, my name’s Ren!” The cutest. Secondly, I took Renny’s senior photos way back about 10 years ago. Crazy. Thirdly, they’re having an early fall outdoor wedding, which just sounds amazing! I’m so excited. I met Renny and Will for a morning session a couple of months ago, and we had a great time laughing and walking and talking and photographing. Can’t wait for this wedding!

Braidyn + Nathan | Engaged

Where to even start with this one? First of all, photo OVERLOAD because I loved this entire session from start to finish. I traveled out to Nathan and his family’s land in the middle of nowhere, and we went to several different spots they’d picked out and it was all perfection. The spot we ended at had gorgeous views of the prairie and I wish I had access to it always! It was so fun to do these in places where Nathan grew up. While I was warned that they may not be the most comfortable people in front of the camera, I feel like it ended up being the total opposite. I mean…look at this first photo!!! So excited for their wedding this fall. If the engagement session was this good, just think what magic we’ll make at the wedding! <3

Whitney + Andrew | Engaged

Not sure I have ever laughed this much during a session! These two were very upfront with me that they were not super comfortable in front of cameras. I told them it was no biggie, and we would have fun. We totally did! They were goofy and hilarious and it was a lot of fun to spend this time together before their big day in March. They realized that I’m not some stuffy old photographer who will make them tilt their head at a 72.5 degree angle, and I realized how much fun their wedding is going to be! I seriously can’t wait. I’m sure they can’t either…so happy for these two!

Heidi + Chris | Wedding

It has taken me a bit to get this wedding blogged…as in, the wedding happened in April. Eek!

But seriously. Best day ever. This wedding was so beyond perfect. With the rain coming down, it could’ve turned out not so great…outdoor photos are my jam. But the rain held off during the times we needed it to, and the cloudy skies were the perfect that day. I just want to make a million albums from these photos and plaster them as canvases all over my walls. 🙂 Heidi and Chris are the sweetest people. After taking their engagement photos last year, I was so excited for the wedding. They are surrounded by such a fun group of people, and they definitely know how to have a good time! The details of the day were astounding and there was never a moment where I didn’t have SOMETHING to be photographing.

Certainly a wedding for the books. Adam and I had such a blast photographing this, and we hope you have just as much fun looking at these. Congrats again to Heidi and Chris. Thank you for allowing us to capture your best day!
