Messamore Family - Kansas City Family Pictures Preview

I met the Messamore family on a very, very hot morning at the Nelson-Atkins Museum (the heat seems to be a common theme here lately). Shortly into the session I began to figure out that this was a very fun and funny family. There was lots of laughter and fun, and it was great to see a family enjoy each other so much. The rest of your pictures will be up soon, enjoy your preview!


Braedon - Topeka Senior Picture Preview

Poor Braedon had the fortune of having his senior pictures taken during one of the hottest weeks we have had all summer. We began late in the evening, and even then the temperature was above 100 degrees. That's not even taking into account the humidity. However, Braedon was such a trooper. He did not complain once, and was incredibly cooperative. Even though we were all very, very hot and maybe a little sweaty, it was wonderful to work with such a cooperative and polite young man. Oh, and did I mention he had the most piercing big, blue eyes. Here is your preview, Braedon!

Great story behind this picture. We were near some not so great areas, and thought we may or may not have seen someone sleeping under the bridge where we had just been taking pictures. We mention this to Braedon's mom, Vickie, and instead of being scared she walks over there to look for herself. I was terrified, but apparently she is quite a bit braver than me :)


Victoria & Justin - A Country Wedding (full preview)

When I first began driving to the address Victoria provided me I had no idea what to expect. I had never been to McLouth, Kansas before, but I was excited to photograph something a little different. I drove through gravel roads and out to what seemed like the middle of nowhere, and couldn't have been more excited by what I saw. Green everywhere, the sky was bright blue with perfectly placed clouds, and while it was very very hot, the scenery made it all worth it. Even better, the bride and groom were an absolute joy to work with. They were both so laid back, kind and gracious. It was a very enjoyable evening, and it was a pleasure to work with the newly married couple! Enjoy your preview!

Love her dress. Non-traditional, but so perfect for the day...totally fit the mood of the wedding, and check out the beautiful detail.

We had a non-compliant ring bearer, and a little flower girl who relentlessly tried to get him to cooperate. Needless to say, they were adorable.

The bride was escorted by her brother, doesn't she just look radiant?

The guests tossed lavender as the bride and groom exited the barn, so the whole place smelled absolutely heavenly for the remainder of the evening. Such a great idea!

They made this great sign for the it!

There is a great story behind this barn (that I am probably going to get wrong, but I will try none the less). Growing up, Justin raised cattle in this very barn that he got married in. Over the past months he has worked hard renovating the barn, pouring a concrete floor, installing beautiful light fixtures, and overall turning it into a really wonderful space. They did such an awesome job, and it really provided a great place for the wedding and part of the reception. If you look above at some of the previous pictures, you can see what the altar area looked like, with the open space looking out over rolling hills and lots of beautiful scenery. All of it was very pretty. I told the couple that they could probably start renting out the space to other couples...I know I would love to photograph another wedding there! :)
