Bailey and Jordan’s Bedford Iowa Rural Peacock purple and teal wedding

Bailey and Jordan’s wedding story for *me* starts a long time ago.  In fact, it started long before Bailey was even born.  (man I feel old now).  I knew Bailey’s mom and dad when they were just spry little pups.  Bailey’s dad and I were in the same class and her mother just a couple years behind. I grew up with her dad and my class was small enough that my classmates don’t feel like classmates, they’ve always felt more like cousins to me.  Every reunion isn’t a class reunion, it’s a family reunion.

After graduation we went our separate ways but a few years ago, we all reconnected again on facebook.  That’s when I began to learn more about Bailey, her brother and sister and her boyfriend Jordan.  Jordan is probably the only man on this planet that could possibly keep up with Bailey’s funny, high spirited antics.  They are ying and yang, and also Laurel and Hardy.  He smiles all the time and looks at Bailey with so much love. (and patience.  lol).

I think of all the kids (and I’ve photographed all of them on different occasions), that I probably most relate to Bailey.  We are both middle children so we both have the “look at meeeeee!!” way of reacting to the world around us.  That makes us awesome in most circles just for the record.

Please enjoy their photos, but have a tissue handy because Bailey is a crier.;)

If you have an upcoming wedding, please feel free to contact me to help you out with your photography needs!

These photos are amazing. This is one wedding I will never forget. I cried watching it take place and I cried re-living it here in your pictures. Your photos are always graceful and beautiful so when you have such gorgeous models to photograph, it makes them over the top. Thank you!

Northwest Missouri, Southwest Iowa Senior Portrait photographer

Last summer on a sweltering day, McKenna came to visit and we spent the evening creating so many beautiful portraits for her senior year. She made it easy being so beautiful and all!

I coaxed her into the water (if you say you want beach pictures, I’m pretty much going to get you wet at some point. We both should be right? lol)

Hannah and Ashton – St. Joseph, MO engagement and Wedding Photographer

This session had lots of new and “first” events for me.

For starters, it’s the first time my husband went along on an engagement shoot.  Mainly because we went to it on our motorcycle (also a first) and he had to drive. LOL!  Also, it was the first time I’d shot in downtown St. Joseph, MO off the riverfront.  So much cool urban architecture.  If you’ve never been, you should go and explore the area.

It was so windy that day with the air just whipping through the buildings and alleyways.  We decided to just run with it and it produced one of my favorite images of all time (the final image in this set).  Hope you enjoy!

This is the image that’s my favorite.  I love the intensity between the two of them, even how her hair is so into him that even it has to touch him.  SWOON
