No better words could describe Michael & Aubree’s day than gracefully classic. The mood of this summer afternoon was as calm as beach waves lapping against the shore.. and yet still so lively! There was so much joy and cheerfulness.. and yet still so peaceful. Even though these two share love so hushed, you’re able to hear and feel it as if it was shouted from the rooftops! This translated so effortlessly into their love story we are so excited to share with you.Read More
There are 326 reasons why we fell head-over-heels for our first Sunday morning wedding (and the word “brunch” most certainly had us SOLD.) Morning weddings have no similar feel to a ceremony starting after noon. You are served waffles and buttermilk biscuits as opposed to parmesan crusted chicken and asparagus. It’s so early in the day that you can truly focus on “the beauty of marriage and family” as Shelby pieced together for us. The start of each day, especially on a day of the week such as Sunday, feels so light, airy and as our bride mentioned, “full of love!” This is exactly what Shelby had wished for.. and if you were to ask us, the Carney’s wedding day was that and much more.Read More
So say you stumbled upon our blog looking for ideas for YOUR day. You dream that the guests will be “ooh-ing” and “awhing” over your color palette? look no further! Boy, did Brittany know what she was doing when she pulled together one of the most elegantly stunning weddings of our time! She had all the help she could ever need from Krista of Addison Grace events as they worked together to combine tasteful peaks of metallics and a beautiful blend of watercolor to her reception.. as well as glitter - because in Brittany’s eyes “glitter is a color.” If you’re wanting inspiration for your upcoming Navy and Blush wedding.. you my darling friend, are in the right place!Read More
Although hundreds and hundreds of miles apart, you wouldn’t know from just meeting this pair that they had spent so much time not side by side. Anthony was finishing up vet school in California while Hillary stayed just north of us in KC. Their Separate worlds formed them into being the most sentimental couples of our career. They knew right away they were either shooting their engagements in Kansas City where they shared many memories.. or flying us out to California to recreate moments they wanted to last forever. Through this process we were the least hesitant we’ve ever been – trusting them that we would be going somewhere nothing short of splendid! Thanks to Hillary & Anthony we flew the furthest away from home to this day & will cherish their engagement session for years to come!Read More
I have to be honest. The favorite part of a wedding day for me (Bee) is our first hour to hour and a half of being on site for wedding day, whether that be at the venue, the hotel, what have you. I absolutely love this first hour.
There is excitement. There are dreams. Reality hasn't quite hit yet and everyone is so beyond excited for the day to unfold. There's typically no stress, the bride is in relax mode and her girlfriends' are making sure everything is going just right.
Around the same time, groom is normally still in his comfortable get-up hanging out with his bro-mates and reminiscing on old times listening to some classic tunes.
And us... we get to photograph all of the most sought after, hand-picked details that were carefully chosen by our couple to accurately represent them and the day that will be the beginning of their forever. I. Love. This. Part!
Our Saturday started off just like that. We walked into a calm group of ladies, perfecting their hair and touching up their makeup, ready to take the day on. While we found a place for the dress; our bride, Jenn was getting her final makeup touches. She was breathtaking.
After we captured the perfect dress photo, we moved on to the other important factors that tie the day in together. The jewelry, rings, and shoes... and boy were they something! You can just see how perfectly it all fits together, just like our bride and groom.
My favorite parts of the day were captured to be cherished forever by our bride and groom. I exhale and before we know it, my favorite part shifts.
Lance loves quietly. He loves swiftly and with grace. It can be seen by anyone that watches the two together. He's a man of few words and a man of many laughs.
We ask Lance if he'd like to help us with setting our light for his first look while we wait for the girls to show up and just like the man he is, he nods in agreement to help us in any way he can. (Without knowing, he's helping his wife to be surprise him for his first look.)
Just like that, my favorite part of a wedding day shifts.
The delight and happiness in Lance's smile says it all. Completely overwhelmed with emotions of happiness, excitement, built-up nervous butterflies, Jen lets out a tear or two... followed by a few more.
He whispers in her ear, reassures her of his undying love and reminds her of her beauty. Without knowing exactly what what was said, you see the love of his life relax and happiness erupt between them both.
Congratulations Jenn & Lance! We can't wait to share the rest of your story with you and were so happy to share with you a peep of our favorite moment!
Oh Faith! We love Faith! She's the kind of girl that when she walks in a room, her sweetness radiates, and we all smile. You can't help it! Her session was no exception. She brought her beautiful friend Reilly along for her Summer Session, which we thoroughly enjoyed! Reilly knew what Faith would just love and really helped to keep us all laughing. These sessions are my favorite where it feels more like hanging out than anything else!
For Faith's Fall Session, we were able to enjoy not only her, but one of her Best Friends, Annie! They had the most adorable fall wardrobe, and it's amazing to see not only how much the girl's have changed throughout their Senior year, but how much we've changed over the course of the many months we've worked alongside them.
Faith has grown as a person, and has became so confident in front of the camera. One of my favorite things about Faith is that we can always count on capturing who she is. We love who she is and we sincerely hope she never changes.Read More

Normally, I give you guys the story from her point of view or our point of view. Today, we give you Jackie & Ryan's love story from Ryan's eyes and a peek at their gorgeous September Wedding! Enjoy <3
The first time I met Jackie I liked her instantly. And loved her very shortly after! We met through some mutual friends in high school, she ended up getting my number and we started texting like crazy. After just a few days of texting I really wanted to hang out with her. I thought she was very pretty and was really fun to talk to. I picked her up from work one day and took her home. We sat at the end of her drive way and talked and talked and talked. I believe we even talked on the phone some more that night! After Hanging out a couple more times I worked up the courage to kiss her! I was very nervous but she did kiss me back and that moment was when I knew that I was going to be with her for the rest of my life! To this day I still get the good ole butterflys when she gives me a kiss!!! There was just something about her. At the age of 16 I couldn't explain how I felt and I still can't put it into words. I guess the best way to explain it is love! If you have truly been in love you will know what I mean! Jackie is truly my other half!! My main goal in life is to retire as early as possible so that we can just relax and grow old together! I Love Jackie with all of my heart! She means the world to me and I would do anything for her! She has always been there to tell me the truth, tell me straight, and comfort me through any situation! We have been through some very rough times together and made it through only making us closer! If I am feeling down she is always there to cheer me up! I trust her with my life and we make an amazing team!Read More
So I have a story about Alyssa's summer session! When we were getting her all prepped and beautiful, she brought me allllll of the pieces she was considering wearing.. but this poor fur vest had no outfit.
Together we brainstormed for what seemed like forever and thought, HOW are we going to pull this off? Then we just said, you know what... let's do something different! Let's create an outlandish outfit that you might not ever wear and see what happens. We both wanted so badly to utilize this killer fur vest. SO we put together something super fun! Her last 5 minutes of daylight, we hopped out of our cars and threw in a super quick and messy side-braid and the end result is to-die-for! Quite possibly my favorite images from the entire year!
Alyssa, we love you. We love your honesty, your kind soul, your persistence, and your belief in us. We have been so grateful to be a part of your Senior Year journey and we can't wait to watch how life unfolds next year for you at K-State! Go get 'em girlfriend!Read More
"Sugar and spice and everything nice." I have no idea why this comes to my mind when I think of Abby! Oh wait. Actually I do. Abby is seriously hands down one of the most genuine girls we’ve ever known. She has opened our eyes to even newer ways to communicate love and kindness each time we see her. Abby is that girl you run to when you’re upset or struggling and she always will have open arms. Listening attentively is a trait we cherish with her plus her advice is nothing short of extraordinary . She’s the real deal. A friend to anyone - that friend we all need in our lives. We will miss having her around SO MUCH. Her smile, her laugh, her sweet understanding.Read More
