Angela & Blair’s wedding was crazy fun!  From the very beginning everyone was so relaxed and happy.  I knew this wedding would be great to photograph.  Angela had great ideas on decorations and all of the details (All time best Photo Booth setup!).  Their ceremony was going to be on the lawn at the KC Convention Center with the Kaufmann Performing Arts Center in the background, but due to the entire month of rainy days, the lawn was a bit too wet to have a wedding.  But they were able to move it over just a bit to the covered solid ground which was still awesome……..and a giant wind tunnel :)

The reception was at The Bride & the Bauer which is just soooooooooooo pretty and one of my favorite spots to photograph!!!!!! I will start with a fun little experiment I was playing around with.  I have done some fun double exposures in camera but this is in photoshop.  And I love it :)  This double exposure is with the flowers at the reception :)  I am kinda dying about it :)  :)   hinkle-133bNow to start with all the fun the girls were having getting ready!  First time photographing a little badminton in the prep room :)hinkle-38 hinkle-47 Singing some fun popular songs from college into mock microphones=awesome photos and laughs :)hinkle-60 The Bride & the Bauer might just have the best bridal room EVER :)  And how awesome are these shoes!  And her necklace goes with the theme of the wedding!hinkle-69 hinkle-88The guys just chillaxing over breakfast :) hinkle-9 hinkle-118 hinkle-91 hinkle-123Succulents in bouquets are awesome! hinkle-142There are so many favorite details of the day and the groom and groomsmen bobble heads are definitely one of them :) hinkle-24 hinkle-97 hinkle-149 Angela came up the freight elevator to see Blair for the first time on their wedding day :)hinkle-151 hinkle-167 One of my favorite photos :)  I love their kissing in the reflection :)hinkle-173 hinkle-197 The hearts on strings background for the Photo Booth is another favorite!  So pretty!!!!!!hinkle-188 hinkle-190 hinkle-201 hinkle-212 This wedding party was incredibly fun and when it came time for dancing-they brought it!hinkle-261 While I was photographing the girls my second photographer Nikki was photographing the guys!  A big thanks to Nikki for getting great shots all day long!!!!!hinkle-270 hinkle-284 hinkle-309 hinkle-295 hinkle-310 hinkle-321 The alter was so beautiful!  Look at the wind blowing the table cloth, it was soooooo windy!hinkle-422 These kids were super cuties!hinkle-433 Good catch to Angela’s Dad as the veil went flying off walking down the aisle!hinkle-439hinkle-463 Woot!  Woot!  They are married!!!!hinkle-564 hinkle-574 Hello Lovelies :)hinkle-608 hinkle-616 Another fave!hinkle-613 hinkle-631 On the right here, the groomsmen kept popping up in the background the in the game whack a mole, it was so funny!hinkle-642 hinkle-651 hinkle-657 hinkle-674 Now to all the lovely decorations!!!!!!!!hinkle-552 And the best Photo Booth ever!!!!  Angela made all of the props!hinkle-221 hinkle-213 hinkle-691 hinkle-704 hinkle-720 Angela & Blair’s first dance spontaneously went from a slow dance to a very fast, fun, bouncy dance!  Another favorite part of the day for me :)hinkle-784 hinkle-792 hinkle-380 The dance party was great with The Patrick Lentz Band rocking the house!hinkle-810 I also got to get a shot of Patrick Lentz dancing with his beautiful wife!  They are both friends of the bride and groom :)hinkle-893 hinkle-879Best rainy night view :) hinkle-901 hinkle-982 hinkle-1012 We ended the night with a few shots under the lights!  Some of my favorite of the night!hinkle-1023 hinkle-1024

I love all of the weddings I photograph and am always excited to witness the promises a bride and groom make to each other.  But I was literally looking forward to this wedding for more than a year!  Last summer I got to spend some time with Leah and Zach in Mexico at Zach’s sister Maggie’s wedding.  I already knew Leah because I took her senior photos years earlier (and her sister’s too!!!), but you get to know people even better when you are at a resort with them for a week :).  And I just love all of their family and am soooooo happy for them!  Seriously, I think I cried more than once this day :)

I want to give a big thanks to Leigh Miller for shooting this wedding with me as well as my intern Paige for all their help :)  But mostly super big thanks to Zach and Leah for trusting me and being super awesome!  Hugs & Smooches!!!!!

I will start with some of the detail shots taken in Leah’s parents home.  I do love the personalness (is that a word?) of getting ready for your wedding day in your own home or family home :)  Gorgeous dress!!!

ballou-25 I also have photographed SIX of Leah’s bridesmaids and attendants before!!!!!!  It is really awesome watching these young ladies become lovely young women :)ballou-30This moment really shows the importance of having a wedding album, even if you are making it on your own.  On Leah’s wedding day they were reminiscing looking at her parents album.
