CARLY + MICHAEL | MIGHTY OAK LODGE | SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

The wedding day was actually supposed to be rainy but sure enough, the sun shined the whole time! The reception at Mighty Oak Lodge was gorgeous, and full of so many special moments. I am so beyond grateful to have been their photographer, but most of all, their friend! They were so willing to take down that client-vendor barrier and invited me into their lives, not just their day! If you made it this far, thanks so much for taking the time to read and scroll! ENJOY~

KENSIE + JON | SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI ENGAGEMENT PHOTOGRAPHER

Kensie and Jon are getting married today! WHOOT! These are probably two of the most thoughtful and caring people I know. When I called Kensie and her mom yesterday, one of the things they kept saying was how they just wanted me to be able to create. That means the absolute world to me! When you don’t put a creative person in a box, you’ll always get a lot more emotion and creativity. If today is anything like our engagement session, there will be lots of laughter and fun!

TRISTAN + JESSE | HASELTINE ESTATE | SPRINGFIELD, MO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Since most their family and friends were either from Texas or northern Missouri, they randomly picked Springfield, MO as a middle ground for their wedding. They rented a big Airbnb and invited all their close family and friends to share in a weekend of celebrating their relationship. I can tell you first hand that there's nothing quite like an intimate wedding surrounded by all the people who have impacted your journey.

KARISSA + GRANT | SECOND BAPTIST CHURCH | MISSOURI WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Karissa and Grant got married at Second Baptist Church, which is right where I grew up with her! (Fun fact: I'm photographing her brother's wedding this year as well! How cool?!) This couple truly loves the Lord and their desire for their friends and family to experience Him on their wedding day was evident from beginning to end. They are most excited about following the Lord together, and have a stronger bond to Him together than apart. They wanted to fully center their wedding around worshipping the Lord as opposed to the day being about themselves.
