Happy Monday, friends! We hope you had a great weekend! We’re back today with a little bit of happy news after a crazy-emotional weekend for us. As many of you know, our goal is to get our couples published. And while we go about that in a variety of ways, one of the ways we do that is by submitting images every now and again to trade magazines. What is a trade magazine? It’s a magazine specifically for photographers. In this case, it’s Shutter Magazine, which also happens to be run by photographers. This magazine is such a great educational resource for photographers, and we it’s one that we always look forward to receiving each month. (Yes, in print form!) The images and articles included in the magazine are by some of the very best in our industry. And you know we love to learn from the best! VIEW FULL POST »
So apparently we’re loving sneak peek Friday around here. You know, since this is the third week in a row we’re celebrating! And you know we totally celebrate when we get to release new images, and it’s Friday! So, yay!! Earlier this week we had SUCH an amazing evening with Maura and Carl during their engagement session. These two are sassy, spunky, and all over sweethearts, and we’ve had such a great time getting to know them both. And, we had so much fun with them on Sunday evening! VIEW FULL POST »
We absolutely love it when our clients want to do something different. I know, I know. You’ve heard that from us a hundred times before. But, it’s seriously the truth. And, we love it even more when our clients want to incorporate something into their session that is meaningful to them. For Katie and Eric, that something was inviting us to their farm for their engagement session. Not only was it a great location for their session, but it truly means the world to us that they invited us into their home. And, that we got to meet all of their pets. (And did I mention that Katie even had hot apple cider for us?!) VIEW FULL POST »
Friends. Last week, we got to do something super-crazy, ridiculous fun. And it involved an absolute dream team of some of Kansas City’s very best and talented wedding vendors. You may have seen photos of a gorgeous bride and a huge Great Dane floating around Facebook and Instagram. Well – just let me say, that we were so very excited that we got asked to be part of that styled shoot!! If you’re thinking, that girl and her dog are crazy gorgeous you are so totally correct. Pair Lauren and Lincoln with the extraordinary talents, gowns, florals, planners, of Kansas City’s best, and we had a heck of an afternoon. And it was a completely and utterly humbling experience.

I feel like you should know, that as I’m putting the finishing touches on all of our Sneak Peek Friday posts, that I’ve got an AMAZING 80s Smash Hits playlist going. Thank you, very much, Spotify. And, in fact, the song of the moment, is “Take your Breath Away,” by Berlin. Those of you that know me know that I’m a BIG believer in the right timing. And man, is this song on at just the right time. If you had only gotten to be with us during Erin and Stephen’s engagement session earlier this week, you would totally get it. These two quite literally took our breath away. Because they’re so crazy-stupid romantic and natural together. But also, because they kept us laughing and in giggles for the entirety of their session. This sweet couple is just so much fun, and we can hardly wait to release more of their beautiful, breathtaking, engagement session. VIEW FULL POST »
Are you so ready and excited?! We are so ready and excited, so we know that you must be too!! If you’re just tuning in, it’s Sneak Peek Friday again, and we are SO EXCITED to finally get a chance to release a sneak peek from Sonia and Todd’s crazy-gorgeous, elegant, Gatsby inspired wedding at The Scarritt Building last weekend! And man – would you believe us if we told you this is just the tip of the iceberg?! These two had an absolute dream team of wedding vendors (we’ll list them below), and their day was simply amazing. And believe it or not, the rain held off JUST long enough! VIEW FULL POST »
Sneak Peek Friday continues! This week we also got to hang out with Andrea and Joe and create their engagement images. Andrea had a very, very specific vision in mind for what she wanted, and she and Joe were so ready for their session! You’ll see (and hear) more about their crazy-elegant-romantic engagement session in downtown Kansas City in the coming weeks! Believe us – you’ll want to stay tuned! But, in the meantime, you’ll just have to get excited about their sneak peek! VIEW FULL POST »
Man! Is this fall turning out to be a beautiful one or what? We LOVE fall around here! Okay, maybe I (Melissa) does more than Kyle, but, still. The color in the trees, the cooler days and sweatshirt and warm sock evenings. It just doesn’t get much better than that. And can we also tell you how much we love fall engagement sessions? To the moon and back! Especially when we get to work with a couple as sweet as Crystal and Nathan.
