Kristina's and Jacob's wedding was a classy affair to say the least, and the venue only added to the ambiance! We've wanted to shoot a wedding at Union Station since we arrived in Kansas City 3 years ago. There's so much history packed into the building and it's a beautiful work of architecture. Mark actually started his career as an architectural photographer, so he's always amped when he sees the opportunity to combine his love of architecture with that of photographing people... so this was perfect. Jacob and Kristina hail from Boston, so planning a wedding in KC was no easy chore. However the day went off without a hitch, thanks in large part to Hannah Klamann of Weddings By Hannah. Here's what it looked like to us :)
Hey, look at us... a blog post. Yes, we always seem to be a bit behind on sharing our images, but we just had to get some up from this shoot with Megan and Luke! We shot in the woods just outside of the MU campus in Columbia, MO. Wooded areas have always been one of our favorite places to photograph. Part of it may be that Mark grew in the country, exploring the woods nearly every day of the summer with his older brother. Part of it may just be the sheer beauty of nature. Whatever it is, we're so glad that Megan and Luke wanted to shoot here... we loved the backdrops that the location offered and it was well worth the drive :)
Here's a little sample of what we captured...
Katlyn and John... what a pleasure to work with these folks! They were so easy going... so natural... and so fun! It was our first time shooting at 1890 Event Space... and we LOVED it there! There is a beautiful old home on the property (where the girls got ready), a nice red barn, and a clean, crisp event space where the reception was held. There is also a great patio where the guests can enjoy a cocktail hour.
Rarely in my life have I seen 2 people laugh so much in one day… genuine, joyful laughter and smiles… all day long! Courtney and Jeff are not only SO apparently in love with each other, but they exude this authentic love and care to everyone around them. It’s beautiful to witness, it’s lovely to experience, and it makes you want to love better. I need more people like this in my life on a regular basis! Thanks, Courtney and Jeff for letting us into your world… it was truly a pleasure.
On a side note, we began offering video services as an extension of what we’re able to offer to our clients. Courtney and Jeff allowed us to create our pilot episode at their wedding (scroll down to view). More to come soon!
More Spring weddings, please... Wow! What a beautiful day in Kansas City?! We had such a fantastic time shooting engagement photos for Ariele and Trevor (didn’t hurt that we did the session right around the corner from our house out in the country, south of the suburbs), and we couldn’t wait to join them on their wedding day! Despite being behind schedule at the beginning of the day due to delays in makeup prep, we caught up, got some amazing images, and had a blast doing it!
