Mandy & Josh are married!!!!!    I was so excited when Mandy asked me to be her wedding photographer for her wedding at the Lake of the Ozarks!  I have known Mandy for a bit now as she is a makeup artist here in KC and has prettied up lots of my brides :)  She does such an awesome job and is so much  fun to be around that I always recommend her to my clients.   When I got to meet Josh I was even more excited for Mandy.  I could tell what a great guy he is and the way they look at each other is pretty awesome :)  I have a shot to prove it :) The weather was giving us a bit of trouble with all of our fun plans but it turned out to be a beautiful night and some very dynamic clouds for a few shots! I will start out with Mandy’s dress from Alter Bridal.  It was amazing, and it was fun to see Dede the owner of Alter Bridal at the wedding! mandy-1 mandy-7 mandy-9 My first bride to ever do her own makeup and all of her bridesmaids :)  On a side note~Dang your arms look good!mandy-33 Mandy’s niece is so adorable and she is now a big sister!!!!!mandy-46 The boys were downstairs prepping for the big day :)  I loved Josh’s color of his tie :)mandy-24 The weather kept changing from looking like it was going to rain any moment to maybe not at all.  mandy-39 mandy-71 mandy-77 mandy-6 So these two shots are my favorite prep shots.  Mandy!  O.M.G!  So pretty, and the hint of purple in her hair was so lovely :)mandy-94 The first look with her dad was so sweet :)mandy-103 Well, it wasn’t raining when we went to have Mandy & Josh’s first look at the point at Shady Gators.  But then it did and the wind was whipping through like crazy.  But still made for pretty photos :)mandy-123 These two photos show the look 😉  They have almost the same exact smile when they look at each other :)  mandy-126 mandy-145 mandy-153 mandy-178 Dude!  Holy calf muscle!  This group of guys were pretty funny.  This is how they made their pants to do a sock photo.  I was cracking up!mandy-182 mandy-188 mandy-207 I was so excited about this spot with all the trees and no rain and beautiful bride!!!!!mandy-233 mandy-258 mandy-242 mandy-248 mandy-270 Hello movie star kiss!!!!!mandy-277 mandy-286 And then this was the view out the window of the ceremony site before the ceremony :)mandy-300 This little guy loved me :)  or maybe my camera :)  He ran right to me during the ceremony!mandy-333 mandy-314 mandy-341 The blue skies turned crazy cool after the ceremony!  We worked fast and got in some awesome photo time before it started raining again :)mandy-381 Super fave!mandy-389 mandy-395 Hello cuties :)mandy-405 mandy-415 I am not going to lie, I have been thinking about these little lemon pies the whole time I have been editing the reception.  They were sooooooo good!  I wish I had one right now!mandy-441 I had a little fun with the ring shots to incorporate the lake in the reflection with great help from McKenna my assistant  :)  mandy-493 mandy-524 mandy-534 mandy-558 Gosh, the lake is pretty at night with all the lights!mandy-601 mandy-480 Sometimes you just need a little nap after rocking the dance floor~right on the edge of the dance floor :)mandy-647 mandy-679   Congratulations Mandy & Josh!!!!!!!!!  Smooches!!!!!
