I have known Jake and his family for years… in fact, he and my brother would have playdates together every once in a while when they were young. He comes from a big, Catholic family… just like me! To make things even more great, Emily and I knew each other from Benedictine College in Kansas! So, when I heard that they had met, fell in love and were getting married, naturally I was super excited!! I love it when two parts of my life connect like that! Of course, I was even MORE excited when they asked me to photograph their day in Kansas City. When May finally came around, I packed up my little family and drove down for the weekend. We were able to spend some time with my sister and her family down there, too – so it worked out great! Their day was beautiful in every way. We missed the rain, thank goodness, and had a lovely summer day! Emily and Jake had such a fun wedding party, and had such a gorgeous ceremony and reception too! They were so obviously in love and it made my job easy. Enjoy these photos, you guys. Many blessings to you as you begin your life together!
I just love doing big family shoots! I come from a large family, so it is always fun for me to photograph other big clans. We had a beautiful day, despite what we were hearing and seeing on the weather report. Must have been those memorares that mom was praying!I was so thrilled that they suggested this beautiful garden for the pictures. It is just so springy and gorgeous!! Enjoy this fun crew!
Just look at these two!! How adorable are they? This is the ultimate spring engagement shoot, full of flowers, flower petals, beautiful willow trees etc… it was so much fun to do! I cannot wait for your July wedding… can you believe it is NEXT MONTH!?!
What a perfect day… in every single aspect! The weather could not have been better, and this beautiful couple could not have been more fun! Their love and joy are totally visible in all these photos. I loved their gorgeous ceremony and their super fun wedding party. We were able to venture out to a few really neat spots for photos afterwards, including a new brewery that you’ll see below. It was an absolute honor to be a part of your day… Blessings to you as you start your marriage!
It was yet another sub-zero Minnesota day, but we made the best of it and went to the awesome Guthrie Theater in downtown Minneapolis! Nick and Megan are so obviously in love and very excited for their summer wedding! It was such a treat to photograph these two and I cannot wait for August!
