Katie and Alex and I go way back. Well at least it feels like we do. From our time spent in New York for their engagement session, to our dinner that night over meatballs, to their wedding a few weeks ago, I have had the chance to really know these two. They are remarkable people with remarkable friends and families. They are also ridiculously cute together. Yeah that is right, I just said cute on my blog. But, I gotta tell ya there is no denying it when you watch these two interact. Katie is a combo of refreshingly silly and sophisticated and Alex is a calm pillar of support to that silliness.
Their wedding was the ultimate personification of these two. Katie’s creative silliness was apparent at every turn with all of the clever details including a burlap photo booth silly props, to her custom made tank tops for all of her bridesmaids that said, “I love snugs”. Then you had Alex and his “keep calm and carry on” attitude.
All I ask for brides and grooms on their wedding day is to be themselves. Katie and Alex took that heart and I was grateful.
Thanks to you two for showing me the real you and letting me capture it.
So here is your preview. Looking forward to seeing you in a few weeks for your viewing.

Love this shot of Katie and Alex waiting to exit while the officiant finishes up.
Some great light for some fast portraits.
The cake. Loved how simple it was.
Great moment. Katie was having a bit of trouble cutting the cake and made a bit of mess of it all.
Katie and Alex go no where without their sunglasses. The table place cards were sunglasses with a K+A on the side.
Katie’s sorority girls and their song.
Katie tests out the photo booth.
The catch. Impressive she only spilled some of her drink.
The Jayhawk garter.
The “I love snugs” tank top. One of the first things Katie told me about was “snugs”. Her abbreviation for her favorite pastime – good old fashioned snuggling.
Love this moment towards the end of the night. I love how no one around the couple seems to even notice they are there.
Saying goodbye to mom.
Always the gentleman Alex helps Katie into the car.
