Nate and Kayla / One year later in Amsterdam

Amsterdam is magical. Its full of some of the hottest people I have ever seen, some of the best food I have ever ate, and to some of the craziest nights I have ever experienced. Most days I would ride my bike with no destination in mind just to enjoy the scenery and explore.

Austin and Haley / Austin, TX

Austin and Haley / Austin, TX

I met Austin and Haley last year at my friends Mackenzie and Kyle's Wedding in Austin TX. We sat down next to each other at the reception and bonded over skateboarding, living in California, and wedding cakes. They have been together for almost 8 years and are still so obsessed with each other that at points it brings tears to my eyes. Seriously, you should find their wedding video on the internet.. it'll bring actual tears to your eyeballs.

Tyler and Jessica's Wichita Mountains Engagement Session

Last year Jessica reached out to me in one of the best ways you could reach out to a photographer. Telling me that she loved my work and wanted to immediately book me for her wedding. As a wedding photographer and small business owner I put so much integrity and time into making my work and my business stand out, so when I get people that truly value me and aren't just shopping for the best deal, I just want to virtually give them the biggest hug and tell them thank you for making me feel like all my hard work is paying off.

Daniel and Selena's San Fransisco Engagement Session

I am finally back in Kansas City! Finally back in my large king bed, finally back in my old clothes, back in my high boots, back to showering consistently, and most importantly I am back to my routine... but not for long.. I leave for San Diego for a Wedding on Friday then leave for Cancun on Sunday. Living slowly has never been my style and I honestly think I could live this kind of life for the rest of my days. There's something about living out of a suitcase and indulging in new ways of living that fascinates me.

Tatiana and Leo's Phuket Beach Engagement Session

Tatiana and Leo's Phuket Beach Engagement Session

Sunday morning I had the pleasure of waking up at 5am to get ready to shoot Tatiana and Leo at Karon Beach in Phuket. Leo proposed to Tatiana at the airport before their trip to Thailand. Seriously, how perfect is that? I was so stoked that I was going to shoot their engagement photos, but I was also super nervous because they are Russian and I was worried I wouldn't be able to direct as well with the language barrier.

“ I'll never forget she wanted me to make a serious face and she told me to pretend someone was "stealing my chipotle" and it worked! Ha! Shoots with her never feel posed or forced because she's so good at capturing the true candid moments. Ten stars for Emma!!!”

Tyler and Skyler.... Doesn't that just sound so perfect?! That sounds like the names of two best buds. It's even more perfect that these two lovers are actually best friends and engaged. The chemistry these two people have together is so intoxicating and infectious. Even I was sitting there thinking, " OMG I just want to go home and hug my person!"

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!

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!

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.
