What an incredible year it has been. Photographing dozens of couples, I've shared in the excitement, the celebration and of course, the nerves and emotions that go along with marrying the love of your life. This is a place of honor for me. Thank you for letting me into your most vulnerable moments. Thank you for trusting my vision and for letting me guide you during our sessions. Let's take a moment to look at the highlights....and I'll try not to cry. #springfieldmophotograp
Venue: Dooley's Chapel on the Lake, Branson, MO Catering: Simply Delicious Floral: Rosewood Floral Dooley's Chapel delivered yet another epic wedding and the Bride and Groom could not have been more awesome to work with! I cannot say enough about this family...down to earth, humble and they really made all of the vendors feel like part of the family.
We even had some good luck rain showers that made everyone laugh and smile ...and sometimes run for cover. All in all, this w
Venue: Top of the Rock, Branson, MO It still amazes me how Kartik was able to pull such an epic surprise for Brandy without her having a clue! It was truly a blessing from God that everything came together so perfectly. Yes, there was rain. Yes, Brandy wasn't going to dress up until her best friend convinced her to. Yes, I was hiding in the bushes lol but in the end, it could not have come together any better. After all, imperfections make for the best memories. How he asked
It's not every day I get invited to such a beautiful setting in the middle of the Ozark country-side. Alison and Roland tied the knot at her parent's home in Rogersville that was constructed by a master builder. The home was designed to make the owner feel "at one with nature" and they certainly accomplished just that and more! The love within their tight-knit family was so tangible and I couldn't help but get choked up seeing Roland's face as Alison walked down the aisle. I
Being a photographer is a little bit like being a movie director with a one-woman crew. You are your own location scout, story-teller/script writer (more about this later) and are in charge of blocking (posing) and scheduling too (making sure everything happens on your client's timeline). So how does one person do all of that? It's actually not as hard as you would think! Start by being willing to fail. It's a hard truth but this is the absolute BEST way to learn! While read
I've known Emily for almost 7 years now so I'm sure you will not be surprised when you hear me say, it makes my heart jump for joy to know that she's finally found the man of her dreams! Both of us girls went through many ups and downs together over the years...hurtful breakups, confusing times and also adventures like riding motorcycles (I was always the back passenger lol) and spelunking in abandoned caves at night. My husband and I tied the knot in 2018 and shortly afterwa
While this is one of my older shoots, I have especially enjoyed sharing it lately because I think that we all need some happy reminders during this pandemic! Statistics say that the divorce and suicide rates are going to go up but maybe if we all reach out to one another and share positivity, we can help in some way. In my opinion, we need to get back to focusing on our true nature....LOVE. That's right folks, we were created with love but sometimes we forget this simple fa
