Teaser Tuesday | Lawrence Kansas wedding photography of Rachel and Daniel

It’s so great to be able to document people through so many stages in their lives. I did Rachel’s senior photos years ago, when I was still doing portraits, and got the chance to be her wedding photographer in Lawrence, Kansas on Saturday. She and Daniel were a joy to document. I don’t think Rachel ever stopped smiling ear to ear all day. They had their Lawrence Kansas ceremony at the St. Lawrence Catholic Church and their Lawrence wedding reception at the Cider Gallery in Lawrence, Kansas. It was a beautiful day with the rain holding out till right when everyone entered the reception. Perfection. Here are a few of my favorite...

Teaser Tuesday | Lawrence Kansas wedding photography of Jenna and Steve

Saturday I found myself back in Lawrence Kansas on the campus of the University of Kansas where my love of photojournalism started. It was wonderful to get back to Lawrence again to document Jenna and Steve’s wedding. Weddings can tend to be stressful events no doubt, but in my experience of documenting over 300 of them, it always works out. Such was the case on Saturday. It was unknown whether or not the ceremony was going to be able to be held on the terrace of the Oread Hotel due to how cold and windy it was on Friday at the rehearsal. Fingers were crossed and by the time the ceremony rolled around Saturday evening it was perfect. Jenna and Steve were able to get married under a perfect Kansas sky they love so much. It’s funny I think that stress that comes with weddings actually ends up making them better. I mean if everything was smooth sailing and easy there would be no emotional roller coaster. Everything that was easy in my life was never very memorable. I loved the emotional roller coaster that was Jenna and Steve’s wedding. One minute you would witness Jenna shedding a tear and the next she was throwing her head back in laughter. It was a joy to be a part of. The images: As you know I love quiet moments. They take extra concentration to look for and capture which often times I feel is why I like them so much. Love this moment as Jenna sheds a tear while her mom puts on a special family heirloom necklace.   Jenna...
