Mike + Caylin's Winter Engagement Session

Mike + Caylin's Winter Engagement Session

Two days ago I had the pleasure of enduring the cold weather for Mike and Caylin's engagement session. We ran around, got warm, and I third wheeled while they cuddled each other. It was the best way to spend an afternoon when it's below freezing!

MT. Charleston Lovers. Allie and Nate Adventurous Couples Session

If you ever text me and say, "Hey, I rented a cabin in the mountains, can we do a photo session there?" I will 100% say yes! I love adventures, I love trekking through the forest for spots, and I love curling up by a fireplace with hot cocoa while enjoying the log cabin ambiance. That's what my day was like yesterday.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

It's that time of year... The time when we say our goodbyes to the year that's passed. Where we praise our accomplishments and embrace our not so brilliant moments. NYE is about reflection for me, and how far I have come since the beginning of the year. 2017 was the year my business actually took off!

Luke and Ashtyne Rural Nebraska Wedding

If there was a contest for photographers on who shot the most beautiful couple in 2017, I'm pretty sure I'd give everyone a run for their money. Luke and Ashtyne are not only actual supermodels, but complete and total starcrossed lovers.

Haley and Sam's Nashville Engagement Session

Haley and Sam's Nashville Engagement Session

Two weeks ago I spent the weekend in Nashville, TN. It's one of my favorite cities in the US. So when newly engaged Haley and Sam asked about taking their engagements around the city I didn't hesitate. They're wedding is in October 2018, and I seriously can't wait for the party that's going to be. They are both such spunky and fun humans, spending time with them was a serious treat. We started our session on a Saturday at 6:30 am, in the downtown area. There was a Christmas marathon starting around that time, so it was entertaining to see runners dressed up as reindeer and Santa Clauses as we were snapping pics around the city. 


Fall Kansas City Wedding

Fall Kansas City Wedding

Hannah and Curtis married in St. Ann's Catholic Church on October 28th. It was a beautiful Catholic ceremony with seats filled by their closest family and friends. Once the couple officially tied the knot, we partied hard at the Uptown Theatre in Midtown KC. Check out this glorious Saturday below!

Motorcycles and a Missouri Sunset

Motorcycles and a Missouri Sunset

I'm pretty sure I get to take pictures of the coolest people. Ross and Mariel are newly married, live in KC, are cute AF together, ride motorcycles, and they have a 15-year-old pomeranian named Chou Chou. On Sunday we all packed in their Jeep and trailered out 2 of their 4 motorcycles to the middle of rural Missouri. We climbed fences, ran in cow fields, almost stepped in cow poop, and rode around on their little Honda 175. Everyone who drove by us stopped to ask if we were lost or needed help, as if they could tell we weren't from here. 


Engagements At The Seven Magic Mountains

Engagements At The Seven Magic Mountains

A year or so ago, an artist made a rainbow rock installation in the middle of nowhere desert between Las Vegas and California. Since then it has been a place to be adventured by tourist. Until this day I have only seen these 7 rock installations on my trek to and from LA. 

Midwestern Engagements with Shelby and Jordan

Midwestern Engagements with Shelby and Jordan

Daylight savings has really put a dent in my schedule! With it getting darker faster, I need to start my shoots at 3:30 pm. Thankfully, Shelby and Jordan made adjustments in their work schedules to make it for sunset. Trust me folks, using that time early in the night before it gets dark is totally worth it if you really want to get the most out of your engagement session.

When I first met Steven and Kylee they told me that they just loved to drink and have fun together. Thats exactly what we did the night of their wedding, and let me tell ya, IT WAS A PARTY!

Chris and Allie Tie the Knot

Chris and Allie Tie the Knot

Two super cute humans got married last month in a garden. It was absolutely perfect. They cried happy tears for their love being finally united, and sad tears for the loss of a friend who passed just the night before while battling cancer. It was truly the most beautiful ceremony of their love, and memorial of their dear friend. I am so honored to have even been there to witness such raw emotion.
