Wichita, KS photographer – Newborn session – Baby Isabella

So, I have never claimed to be a “baby whisperer” and this little cookie defiantly showed me who was boss!! She thinks the modeling gig is not her style but she is so stinking adorable anyway! We got about 10 minutes of good sleep out of her!

Wichita KS wedding photographer – Tori & Adam

Tori & Adam are married!!!

What an amazing day it was! The weather was perfect, just the right amount of clouds with a few sprinkles throughout the day! I met up with the wedding party at Grace Presbyterian Church in Wichita. The girls were getting hair and makeup done and relaxing.

The guys arrived and started getting ready in their sharp tuxes from Men’s Warehouse. We headed out for the guys only photos first. They were all so much fun to work with and up for anything! They then went back into their dressing room to be locked away while the girls got dressed. Tori had many laughs with her girls as she got into her amazing wedding gown from David’s Bridal.

We stepped out for the girls only photos. These ladies are awesome! They all looked amazing and were a joy to be around! We had a few moments for a meeting spot for Tori and Adam. They did not want to see each other prior to the ceremony but we had a place where they could be in the same room and hold hands for a few moments. How entirely sweet that was!!

The guests were seated and it was time for Tori & Adam’s ceremony. Tori’s father walked her down the isle. Adam watched as his beautiful bride approached. So sweet! They shared in the exchanging of vows, rings and had a unity knot tie ceremony, and sealed the deal with an amazing first kiss as husband and wife!

They had a bubble exit with probably the most bubbles I have ever seen! Their guests headed to Beech Activity Center for a cocktail hour while the family and wedding party stayed for formal photos.

The wedding party loaded into the Limo from Worldwide Limo Service and we stopped at a nice spot for some photos of just the newly married couple! I am in LOVE with the connection these two have! Simply amazing!!

Tori & Adam were announced into their reception with applause from all their family and friends! They shared an amazing dinner provided by Beech Activity Center. The wedding party gave their heartfelt toasts. Tori & Adam cut into their beautiful cake provided by Cake Affairs and mingled with their guests.

Tori & Adam had their super sweet first dance as husband and wife and it was amazing! Their dance was followed by father/daughter and mother/son dances. The couple invited their guests to participate in an anniversary dance and the bouquet and garter toss. The guests danced the night away with music provided byEQ Soundsand it was a perfect ending to a perfect day!

Congrats you two! Here are a few of my fav’s from their day! You can view their full gallery HERE.

Wichita, KS engagement photographer – Tori & Adam {engaged}

Tori & Adam are engaged!

I had a great time meeting up with Tori and Adam for their Engagement Session! They are very into the outdoors so naturally, we found some lush green for their session at Sedgwick County Park.

The light was amazing and so was the love between these two! They could not stop giggling!!

We first met at WSU campus for a few shots by the infamous LOVE statue! The blues of the sculpture just popped in the light and it was the perfect setting!

I can not wait for their August wedding!

Wichita KS wedding photographer – Kelsea & Ryan

Kelsea & Ryan are married!!

It was a beautiful day for a beautiful wedding! The weather was amazing and the entire day was just perfect! I met the wedding party at Tanganyika Wildlife Park which was the location for their amazing ceremony and reception. It is absolutely one of my favorite places to shoot!

Kelsea’s flowers from Stems Floral filled the room with the amazing smell of gerber daisys and roses! They were amazing! Before we knew it, it was time for Kelsea to get into her beautiful gown from Parrot-fa-nalia. It was perfect! She wore it well with her silver boots! They guys were getting all decked out in their tuxes from Parrot-fa-nalia and Ryan was looking sharp in his grey tux. Him mom helped him pin on his boutonniere and his dad adjusted his tie.

Before we knew it, it was time for Kelsea & Ryan’s First Look! If you have never heard of this, its simple. Its a special time prior to the ceremony for just the Bride and Groom (we are standing from afar capturing this for you!). This is the WOW moment for the couple to see each other for the first time without the stress of 300 guests watching in the background! The emotion and expressions from a First Look usually are more natural and raw than during the ceremony and it relieves any stress prior to the ceremony. This also gives you plenty of time to do your formal photographs prior to the ceremony as well.

Kelsea and I had met up a few weeks prior for a Simply Diva Session. She gave Ryan a For Your Eyes Only Album during the first look … I think he liked it!!!

The guests were seated and it was time for Kelsea & Ryan’s ceremony. Kelsea’s father walked her down the isle. Ryan watched as his beautiful bride approached. So sweet! They shared in the exchanging of vows, rings and had a unity sand ceremony, and sealed the deal with an amazing first kiss as husband and wife!

After the ceremony, the guests wished Kelsea & Ryan off and all headed into the reception area for the dinner and dance reception. We had a few moments to get a few more images before they were announced to their guests.

Kelsea & Ryan were announced into their reception with applause from all their family and friends! They shared an amazing dinner provided by Hog Wild BBQ. The Best Man and Maid of Honor gave their heartfelt toasts. Kelsea & Ryan cut into their beautiful cake provided by a very talented family friend and mingled with their guests.

Kelsea & Ryan had their super fun first dance as husband and wife and it was amazing! Their dance was followed by father/daughter and mother/son dances. The couple invited their guests to participate in a dollar dance and the bouquet and garter toss. The guests danced the night away with music provided by Complete Music and it was a perfect ending to a perfect day! Their guests sent them off with a giant balloon farewell!

Congrats you two! Here are a few of my fav’s from their day! You can view their full gallery HERE.
