Kansas City wedding photographer
Natural | Fun | Classic
History and traditions are my thing and one of the many reasons I love to document a wedding day. One of my favorite photos from childhood is of my grandparents being silly and in love. My goal is to show your future generations who you are on your wedding day, in love, happy, beautiful and fun.
Having studied Photojournalism in college, we strive to tell the story of your love, starting with an engagement session and finishing with your storybook Album. And, 11 years into photographing weddings, we’ve handled every situation and every lighting scenario to provide ease and expertise.
I also love to travel and have traveled to Grand Cayman, Mexico, Telluride, Colorado, Michigan, South Carolina, Chicago and St. Louis for destination weddings and engagements.
We go to Breckenridge every year in February to enjoy the slopes. It’s something my husband and I have done since we were dating and now we take our kids.
If I’m not skiing, I’d prefer the sand between my toes and will never forget the time we snorkeled the reefs of Grand Cayman to find a tiny baby octopus hanging out inside a small shell.
I want to vacation to Germany, the Greek Islands and visit all the cathedrals in Italy. Cathedrals are my specialty. As a Catholic, myself, we understand the mass, respect the process and value the meanings behind traditions.
I also have a deep rooted love for film, natural light and vintage cameras. You’ll see these things throughout my home, telling the story of who we are on our walls and incorporated into my work. I love adventures and a camera is always in tow.
My childhood dream was to work with Rolling Stone Magazine. I obtained a Photojournalism degree and moved to downtown Chicago to work with a product photography studio. Chicago is where I first started my business and I love to get back there any chance I get.
I love a quiet morning with a latte and a good read.
A good conversation over an IPA is my idea of going out and I’m in bed by 9 p.m. on a good night!
We have dance parties in the living room, camp out in the back yard, go to the beach as often as possible.
I love Summer nights under the stars, outdoor concerts, Winter evenings cozied up by the fire with a good movie and Fall anytime!
My husband, John, and I have three amazing, gorgeous children that make my world spin round.
Our wedding portraits that hang on our walls have taught me that our images become more endearing with time. I love walking by these portraits and the memories they give me.
I’m often asked what gear I use or love the most and why. So, here’s what’s in the bag at every wedding or session I photograph and for the record, I’m a Canon girl.
On a wedding day, I’m typically using two cameras, both Canon 5D III’s. I also have the original 5D for a back up.
My favorite lens on a wedding day is the 50mm 1.2L. Others include the 85mm 1.8 and the 70-200mm 2.8L, the 100MM 2.8L for rings and other details and, the 24-70mm II 2.8L.
I teach a class on how to operate your DSLR camera and off-camera flash techniques with the next class scheduled for January 2017. If you’re looking to join a class, please email me: email@example.com.
