Jan + Travis – 50th Wedding Anniversary Photography – La Vela in Wichita, Kansas

I love being a wedding photographer, but I was in for a special treat recently when asked to photograph a 50th wedding anniversary. Since I market wedding photography, this was my first 50th anniversary party and I wasn’t completely sure what to expect. Jan and Travis were celebrating 50 years of marriage, and their children planned a party to celebrate with their family and friends. Their daughter, Kelli, was in charge of organizing the party, and she wanted the party to […]

Morgan + Corey – Wedding Photography – Cardinal Creek Farm in Leon, Kansas

I’m normally not one to get very emotional at weddings. The height of emotion at a wedding is typically the ceremony, and that’s when I’m most alert, taking each moment in as quickly as possible and trying to capture expressions and not miss photographing anything. During most ceremonies, that doesn’t give me time to stop and take in my own emotions. Morgan and Corey’s ceremony was different. The ceremony began, and the six pairs of bridesmaids and groomsmen made their […]

Lindsey + Steven – Wedding Photography – George Pyle Park in Hutchinson, Kansas

Outside ceremonies are always so beautiful, but watching the weather report for them the week before makes me so nervous for the couple. Even up to the day of Lindsey and Steven’s wedding, the weather report kept changing. One minute the report would show clear weather and the next it showed rain right at the time of their planned gazebo wedding in Hutchinson, Kansas. We watched the skies all morning and, right before their ceremony time, the dark skies rolled […]

Digitals or Albums: Should I Get the Digitals Only or Album Collection for My Wedding Photography?

  I have a confession to make. Even though I’m a professional photographer, I was a die-hard “digital files only” girl until recently. In fact, that’s the reason why (as of this posting), all of my packages include the digital files and I have one package that only includes digital files, no prints or products. I completely get that a lot of couples just want the digitals so that they can keep costs down (hey, weddings are expensive!), print on […]

Valerie + Kade – Wedding Photography – Kingman, Kansas

  This was such a fun wedding on a beautiful day! The weather was surprisingly cool for a Wichita wedding in late May, but it ended up being perfect. After meeting with Valerie and Kade for the first time at their consultation, I knew I would love working with them. They wanted their wedding day to be fun yet meaningful, and their real excitement was about their marriage and starting their lives together. In each photo I took of them […]

Maggie + Matt – Wedding Photography – St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Wichita, Kansas

  Maggie and Matt’s wedding was the perfect mixture of beautiful, romantic, and fun. The wedding was at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Wichita, Kansas and the reception followed in the beautiful backyard of a private residence. The wedding ceremony reflected the deep love Maggie and Matt have for each other, and the reception was laid back and truly a celebration of their love. One thing that stood out to me about this couple was their kindness throughout the […]
