When I am editing someone’s wedding photos, I feel a little bad sometimes that I get to relive all the awesome moments and parts of the day before I deliver the photos to the brides and grooms.  But it is really fun to go through all of the photos that I took and all of them that my second photographer, Nate took and perfect them for the couple and their families :) I am excited to share Melissa & Ed’s photos of their wonderful wedding celebration.  And I wanted to share a few from their engagement shoot that I haven’t shared yet!  I flew to Dallas, where Melissa & Ed live, and we had a great time shooting around the city and a wonderful time having tacos and margaritas afterwards :)  I enjoyed so much getting to know them.  And if you are reading this and know these two, I am sure you also adore them, because it is impossible not to :)  Ohhhhhh, I feel warm just thinking about this day in Texas! melissa-104blog melissa-187blog melissa-206blog melissa-211web melissa-215blog   And now back to their wedding day!!!!!  I will start with the girls getting ready and Melissa’s beautiful dress and super fab shoes! hegedus-8 hegedus-41TWO incredible dresses and Jimmy Choos!!!!!! hegedus-128 hegedus-70hegedus-25

It is always exciting to get to travel to another city for an engagement or wedding to photograph.  I love exploring and photographing new scenes.  I flew to Chicago where Sarah & Joe both live to photograph their engagement session.  Their wedding will be here in KC this fall.  I always think it is a great idea to have your engagement session in the area where a couple is starting their lives together.  It will be such a wonderful way to remind them of that time no matter where they end up living down the road :)

I had a lot of favorites from this session and a great quick tour of Chicago :)  One of my favorites are under this bridge!  I LOVED this spot :)
