Handsome Hanna & the ever so lovely Miss Megan had a wonderful wedding reception in Kansas City at the Hilton President.  I had the pleasure of photographing Hanna & Megan’s engagement session in NYC this summer. I already knew that photographing Megan was awesome as I took her senior photos and could remember clearly how fashion forward and sweet she is, but getting to see Hanna with her in NY was really wonderful.  Seeing them laugh, smile and just be so in sync with one another was my favorite part about being in NY :)  Of course I walked my husband all around the city until our feet were to fall off having fun as well :)

Hanna & Megan were actually married a month earlier in Beirut, Lebanon in the most gorgeous church I have ever seen.  I would have loved to have photographed them there too!  I was in awe at all of the loveliness from the slideshow they played at their KC reception.  Seriously.  Incredible.

But how fun is it to have two celebrations!  It was great for them to be able to share with friends and family who were not able to make it to Beirut and also wonderful for all that traveled here to KC for their celebration!

Big thanks to Jessica Moore for shooting with me on this great day too!!!!

I will start with Megan’s dresses!  Yes!  Two dresses that were amazing!

Congratulations Megan & Hanna!  I wish you a lifetime of romance!


Jaci and Alex were married in Franklin Tennessee, one of the most adorable little towns I have ever seen.  There wedding and reception were held at The Factory.  It is such a neat building with amazing spots for photography!  It is an old factory turned into an unique shopping center and venue.

When I first met with Jaci and she was telling me about her vision for the ceremony/reception, I was getting soooooo excited!  I  loved all of her ideas and couldn’t wait to photograph them all :) She had me at black and white umbrellas hanging from the ceilings 😉  And I was super excited to travel to Nashville for a little adventure!  I asked a great photographer friend of mine, Jessica if she would like to shoot it with me and I was excited she said yes ( I know she loves a good adventure too! )!

It was such a fun trip listening to some music, exploring new areas, location scouting and photographing a wonderful wedding!  I also had the best catfish I have ever eaten in Nashville at Etch!

I will start with the girls getting ready.  I loved this part of the day.  It felt like a wonderful family friend reunion.  So much love and excitement going on in the girls room :)  I was just photographing this little guy in KC when he was still in his mommy’s belly!  I know Jaci was super excited he joined the world in time to attend the celebration!
