Grace, Helias Senior 2020

Seniors 8 . 13 . 19

How fun it was working with Grace! I photographed her older sister last year, so it was so awesome to work with their family again! Grace was a dream to work with, she is so beautiful and photogenic. We had several neat locations we photographed at and Grace invited her group of friends for a few photos. Congrats on your senior year, Grace!

Sophie, Jefferson City Senior 2020

Seniors 8 . 6 . 19

How did we get to the Class of 2020 already!?!?! Nonetheless, I just starting shooting some of these amazing young men and women and I am so excited to see where life takes them. I had as blast photographing Sophie! She is one gorgeous lady! We started downtown Jefferson City and then went to the Conservation which was at peak for wildflowers. I am also happy she brought along her sweet pup for a few pictures. Congrats on your senior year, Sophie!

Mr & Mrs Littrell, Wedding Day Simmons Stables Mexico, Missouri

Weddings 7 . 23 . 19

An enormous CONGRATS to Clayton and Courtney! I knew this was going to be a joy-filled day and it did not disappoint. I can’t pinpoint the best part of the day…. Sweet letters and gifts, excited friends and family, best first look ever, happy tears, sweet toasts, choreographed father/daughter dance….It was all perfect! Also, Courtney,  she was a vision. The epitome of a classic bride. She is also a very talented lady, she did her own invitations and arranged all of the bouquets!

The girls started off at The Strand Salon for hair and make-up before making their way to the Newman Center for their ceremony. Once everyone was dressed and ready, Clayton and Courtney exchanged sweet notes and gifts before their first look. We went to Mizzou campus for their first look. It was one of the best ever, Clayton’s expression was priceless! After their ceremony, everyone went to Mexico for the reception. Simmon’s Stables has rich history in the community and Clayton’s mom was part of the preservation team to restore it back to its original glory. It was a neat location for the reception and held strong meaning for the family.

I am so happy for these two as they start their lives together, thanks for allowing me to be apart of this wonderful day. I am beyond happy to have met this sweet couple and wish them all life’s greatest blessings!

Mr & Mrs Bax – Vintage Barn Wedding Jefferson City, Missouri

Weddings 7 . 11 . 19

Congrats to David & Sydney! It was so awesome to photograph this beautiful wedding day with such a sweet couple. It was a joyful day for family and friends! I knew from the moment I met Sydney their wedding would be a blast! She was laid back and simply excited to start their next chapter together. Also, can we say COLOR! I love pastels and neutrals, but I am loving the bright orange in this wedding! I hope to see more color in 2019!

Their ceremony was held at Immaculate Conception Church in Jefferson City,  Missouri and their reception was held at the bride’s family farm. After the ceremony, the couple and bridal party made their way over to Bar Vino for a few celebration drinks before heading to the reception.

They used multi-colored florals and decorated with clementines throughout their wedding day.  Sydney’s dress was so unique and fun to photograph, it was perfect for her rustic outdoor reception. There was a old barn on the property that Sydney’s parent’s renovated into the perfect wedding reception venue. Dancing, lots of laughs, and a few tears made this day overwhelming perfect. Oh, and an amazing sunset!

I am ecstatic for these two to share their life together and appreciative of the opportunity to be apart of a wonderful day. Much love and many blessings to the Bax family!

Mr & Mrs Kirchgessner – Blue Bell Farm Fayette, Missouri

Weddings 6 . 28 . 19

Oh, how I love these two. I knew the first time I met them that they were going to be an awesome couple to work with. They have something special…. faith, family, and amazing friends! Their marriage will no doubt have many blessings. I should definitely mention the pup of honor, Ash. He is Craig’s dog and a very loyal companion. Craig’s only request was that we get Ash into as many photos as possible. It was quite easy since he never left the groom’s side! As you look through these photos, you will see a cute little grey pup in most photos!

I was so excited to get back out to Blue Bell Farm, one of my favorite venues in the mid-Missouri area! I love farm life and Blue Bell has a quaint, historic, and peaceful setting. I also spend way too much time trying to get their free roaming chickens and ducks in my photos :)

April got ready in the newly finished cottage located just outside of the barn. It is darling with many nice finishes. Their ceremony was held on the back deck that overlooks the lake. After the ceremony, guests enjoyed yard games, roaming the farm, and of course dinner. Storm clouds rolled in a right as we were finishing up portraits before Craig and April left for the evening. The two made a fast dash at sunset to head out on their first date as a married couple. Congrats to April & Craig, a pleasure to work with you and your family.
