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.Read More
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...
If you've thought about dressing up a little for your engagement session.... DO IT! This was one of our favorite engagement sessions this year. Cody and Felicia decided to get a little dressed up and start off the shoot at Harry's, one of their favorite local Kansas City establishments. Their wardrobe matched the environment perfectly. After leaving Harry's, we headed to a lesser-known spot that overlooks the West Bottoms near downtown to chase the remaining daylight.
Not only did I have a great time shooting with these two, but they treated me to a gin and tonic to start things off! Gotta love drinking on the job ;)
Ever since we shot Justin and Adrienne's engagement session, we've been stoked to partner with them on their wedding day. They are two of the nicest people you will ever meet, and we've really enjoyed getting to know them. Justin and Adrienne were married at Christ Community Church in Brookside had their wedding reception at The Guild in the Crossroads.
On a side note: I've been after that particular photograph above since we moved to Kansas City about 2 years ago. I finally had the time, location, and the perfect couple to pull it off!!
Oh, lastly, this was also our first time working along side the folks from The Photo Bus. They've got a seriously rad thing going (there are a couple photos at the end of this post)... so, if you're looking for a fun and unique photo booth option for your wedding reception, please check them out!
Now... some photos...
It's not too often that we get down to Nashville, and that seems somewhat unfortunate. Not only does Katherine have fairly strong ties there, having grown up visiting family in Nashville and then heading there for a degree in vocal performance from Belmont University, but we also have some very close friends that live just outside of the city. So it's always a pleasure to visit (especially when we can extend our stay, and still expense most of the trip!).
Matt and Diana tied the knot a couple months back and their wedding was really one of a kind, created by them from start to finish and inspired by some of their favorite classic authors. It was full of class and style, and we enjoyed getting a chance to capture something so unique. The ceremony and reception were held at Events on 3rd (an historic Speakeasy from the 20's) in the heart of Printers Alley
