Wichita Mountains Engagement Session

This engagement session in the Wichita Mountains with Edwin and Abby was a great time! We almost had to reschedule, due to rain in the forecast, but thank goodness it held off! The cloud coverage made for the perfect lighting!
Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their session!

Evan + Dani Wedding | Colwich, Kansas

I had the privilege of photographing Evan and Dani’s wedding last summer, and let me tell you, they are two of the kindest people, and made me feel so welcome and just like I was part of their crew!
Their wedding was held at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Colwich, Kansas. The entire day was so beautiful and filled with so much love! After the ceremony, the entire bridal party, along with my second shooter and I, got on a party bus and rode to some land owned by Dani’s dad to take some bridal party photos(so much fun!). After taking photos in that location, we made a pit spot at a friend of Evan and Dani’s to take a few more photo’s. We went to the reception from there, and then ended the day with some sunset photos of Evan and Dani!
Enjoy some of my favorite photos from their special day!

Wichita, Kansas Engagement Photos | Evan + Dani

I drove to Wichita, Kansas to meet Evan and Dani for their engagement photo session a few weeks back, and I hit it off right away with them! Dani is so sweet and Evan is such a nice guy (so nice that he helped Dani pick stickers out of her skirt without complaint)! We met at the Great Plains Nature Center and explored for a bit while we took photos. We had enough time for me to get to know them a little bit and hear their love story. Hearing couples love stories is one of my favorite parts of my job! I just love all of my couples so much, and these two are no exception! Here are a few of my favorite photos from their engagement session.

Evan and Dani, thank y'all for being awesome going along with all of my crazy prompts. I am so excited for your wedding day coming up! Seriously though, how is it already almost August?! I will see y'all soon! :)



Maternity Session in the Wichita Mountains

I had the pleasure of meeting these two parents to be and taking maternity photos for them in the Wichita Mountains a few weeks ago. I just love that my job allows me to meet so many amazing people! From what little time that I spent with Justin and Chelsea, I know that they are going to be amazing parents. It is obvious from looking at these pictures how much they adore their baby boy! Chelsea is simply stunning and is the definition of a glowing mama! Congratulations you two and thank you for allowing me to document this special time in your lives!

Couples session in the Wichita Mountains

Dillon and Sydney were the winners of a couples session giveaway, and wow they killed it! Syd and I decided to go to the Wichita Mountains for the photo session, and as usual, the mountains did not disappoint! During one of our conversations Syd asked if they could bring their dogs along, and I of course didn't mind one bit! Seriously, how stinkin cute are they?! For future reference, if you have a photo session scheduled with me, and want to bring your fur babies along, please do! Also, can we talk about Dillon and Sydney's outfit choices? Perfect! I send out a session prep guide that includes styling tips, and I love when my clients take it to heart! Good outfit choices go a long ways and are a big part of how the look of the photos turn out. Sydney ordered the black dress especially for the photo session and it looked stunning on her! Anyways, I am obsessed with these two and wanted to share a few favorites from their couples session in the mountains!

Weston + Rachel

I have intended on blogging my sessions for awhile now, but felt that I never had the time between wifing, momming, housework, sessions, editing, and the list goes on. I see multiple others making the time to do it, so I knew it could be done, I just needed to make it a priority! At the beginning of this month I made a mental list (I've yet to write them on paper) of things I wanted to start doing this year that I have been putting off, and blogging is on that list. New year, new me, right?! I recently started time-blocking, where at the start of the day I write down on paper every thing I need to get done for the day. I make a list and give myself so much time to do each task, and when the timer goes off, it is on to the next task. It has helped me tremendously to stay on track and get way more done each day, and checking things off the list makes me feel so accomplished! Blogging a recent session is on the list today, so here I am!

Brianna Record from Brianna Record Photography (one of my favorite photographers), held a mentor day at her home, and I was so excited to join, along with three other amazingly talented ladies! When I arrived at her home at 10 am, Bree had brewed some freshly ground coffee, and had enough crispy creme donuts to feed a small village . Yea, it was amazing! I am a coffee and a donut freak. But really, who isn't? Bree went over how to run a business, her workflow, and how to get natural reactions and emotions from clients. She even had a behind the scenes video from a session that was really cool! After loading our brains with new knowledge, she took us out to eat lunch at Louie's where I had some of the best shrimp tacos I have ever eaten, and a delicious margarita on the rocks! 

Back at Bree's I had (I am ashamed to admit) even more donuts, and learned some more business related things, and got ready for our couples to arrive. Bree had each of us find our own couple's and recommended that we reach out to someone we didn't know, so that we could make new connections and hopefully find someone that we felt fit our style and that we clicked with. I went out of my comfort zone and asked a complete stranger if her and her man would like to come model for me and I was so excited when she said yes! When our couples arrived we went out to the overgrown pasture by Bree's house, and each of us ladies separted with our couples and got to do what we all love, document our couples frolicking, dancing, making out, and all kinds of fun, mushy stuff!

After the shooting portion of the day, we ventured back to Bree's house and she fed us, again. Pizza this time! Seriously, she is the best host ever, hands down! I'm thinking about hiring her to mentor me again, just so she can feed me! While we stuffed our faces with pizza, she went over how she imports, edits, and exports. We got to see each others images that we took that evening. Seriously though, I was surrounded by some super talented ladies! After going over the post processing I headed home to my babies and my husband with a very full belly, a ziplock baggie of donuts (for the kids of course) a happy heart, and a lot of new knowledge!

Now, check out some of my favorite pictures from that day! Weston and Rachel, I adore y'all, and y'all were perfect! Thank y'all so much for saying yes to modeling for a complete stranger, and letting me capture some of my favorite pictures! Lets do it again sometime, please?
