Hayley and Andy are a blast.  Andy surprised Hayley with a proposal on the Country Club Plaza, so we trekked down there for their engagement session.  These two are also serious sports fans.  They’ve got a friendly rivalry going on between college teams, but at least they both root for the Cheifs.   Take a look…034hayley_andy_es.jpg006hayley_andy_es.jpg007hayley_andy_es.jpg  read more

Pardon the lateness on posting.  This was a beautiful day that I’ve been eager to share!

I was really excited when my friend Holly told me about Emily and Matt.  Emily is best friends with two of my really wonderful former clients, and she teaches art, so I knew we would hit it off.  Matt is an incredible track athlete, and the kind of guy that has fun in any situation.  Our dear friend Seth married the couple at the charming Country Club Congregational church, right up the street from my house.  Emily and Matt stressed that the most important thing was to have a great party for their friends ad family, and I think this might have been the most packed dance floor I’ve seen in my wedding career.
Thank you two for letting me be the one to record your day.  It was beautiful.

hey all.  I’ve missed you.
I have been out of town for a week- a little work and a little play, but I’ve got all this great stuff to share with you!  
I’ll start with this bright and sunny engagement session of Jackie and Kyle’s.  These guys were so fun to shoot.  Jackie even thought she had mono at the time, but it didn’t seem to diminish her luminosity.  Check em out…

I shot Selina and Dan’s wedding at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art a little over a year ago, and we recently got together for a one year anniversary family photo.  Family being Selina, Dan, and their two beautiful Italian Greyhounds.003selina_dan_08-copy.jpg007selina_dan_08-copy.jpg read more

I met Elle and Greyson at the wedding of one of my dearest past couple’s wedding- Tommy and Emily Hess.  Elle is Tommy’s sister, and I remember thinking how cute Elle and Greyson were walking down the aisle as wedding party.  Little did I know that a few years later, I would get to record them walking down the aisle as bride and groom.  As I have said before, it’s wonderful to be a part of a wedding day with a family that I already know and care for.  And it was an absolute pleasure getting to know the wonderful Clymer family.  Elle and Greyson come from strong loving families and are surrounded by friends with solid history.  They were such a fun (and beautiful) crowd!
Elle and Greyson first started dating at Shawnee Mission East high school.  Everyone cracked up when one of the best men told the story of the night in high school when Elle and Greyson disappeared for a long while at a friends house, and eventually walked into the room hand in hand announcing to the room “we’re dating!”.  Oh, high school.  How cool to have known eachother all that time.  I loved working with these two because they are beautiful in every way.  It’s rare that style and beauty like theirs is matched with such genuine kindness.
Thank you guys so much for letting me be a part of your day.  Be sure to watch a slideshow of some favorites at the end of the post!
Here Elle opens a gift from one of her bridesmaids- peach champagne- certainly the beginning of some good times in the past 022hess_clymer-copy.jpg 23.jpg
