Kansas City Wedding: Cara + Ryan

This is the first time I got to shoot with Sarah of Sarah Dickerson Photography, and I can assure you it won't be the last! She was so fun to work with, and she uses her special connections to get us to places that normal people can't get to. To see her shots from this wedding, you can click HERE.

Cara is actually an old friend of Sarah's, so the whole day went very relaxed. We started out at the hair salon, then to the mall for makeup, then to the church right by my work for the ceremony. After that, we went to the Airline History Museum in Kansas City for the reception in the big hanger!

Let's start us up with some black and white photos eh?

Ah, remember this photo? :)

Grain Valley Wedding: Sarah + Matthew

This wedding is a little special, because the bride is actually Laura's (Lark Photography) cousin. Laura was originally just gonna shoot the wedding by herself, but then it turns out it would be a better idea that during the reception, she would hang out with her family while I continue to shoot.

It was extremely humid and hot that day, but everyone was still so cooperative and relaxed! Their wedding colors are black/white/red, which are my favorite color combo, so I took lots of detail shots of the decorations with that color theme. The flower girl was really cute too, so I took a few of her.

Also, I knew this was gonna happen sooner or later, but I left my tripod at the wedding venue~ Good thing the place was only like 15 minutes away from my house. Anyways, congrats to Sarah and Matthew!

This one kinda has a different feeling... Like, this little girl is growing up, and we remind her to watch her head, and be careful with everything, and don't let anything get over her head.

St. Joseph Wedding: Sarah + Leighton

Finally caught up with my own clients' wedding photos, so time to catch up on the ones I second shot at!

Another one with Lark Photography, in St. Joseph, MO! It was a bit warm that day, but we got lots of cloud cover, so photos were awesome. I dropped off Laura with the girls, and I head over to the guys for their get ready. From there, it's all uphill on the fun ride~

Sarah and Leighton were so in love, and the genuineness shows through the photos. It's not the young cheesy love, but the mature love. They made couples photos really easy to capture, but when you pull them apart, they became models themselves!

The wedding and reception were at St. Francis Xavier Church, and if I remember correctly, that's where Sarah went to preschool (?) at. Either way, very nice venue!

Leighton came up with this one himself! Love it!
