Brittin and Kaylee || Wedding at a Barn

My final wedding for 2020 and it is a very beautiful, special one. Brittin and Kaylee’s love for each other was so apparent. They were high school sweethearts and it is so beautiful to see their young love blossom into more mature love as they start their lives together with their sweet daughter, Emery. They had their wedding in a family owned barn. The colors were hints of pink, the bridesmaids wore boots, groomsmen wore cowboy hats and it was a beautiful country chic wedding.

Congratulations Brittin and Kaylee, it was an honor to be your wedding photographer and I am so thankful for the privilege of capturing those sweet memories for you guys and your family.

This wedding is definitely a beautiful way to end the year 2020. This year has been a year of blessings and opportunities for me and my photography gig. I never thought that I will be booking weddings this year but I was able to shoot 7 weddings and met beautiful couples and made memories. This year is definitely a year to remember. My goal for 2021 is to serve my clients more in everything I do and to work more on my creative side. Bring it on 2021!

Here’s my favorites from Brittin and Kaylee’s wedding. I hope you guys will enjoy the photos from this lovely day.

Megan and Zach || Wedding at Venue on Brick

Megan and Zach’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. The venue was incredible, the weather was warm but perfect and seeing them start their life together was just so lovely to watch. As Zach saw Megan walk down the aisle, he can’t keep himself from smiling and it was the sweetest thing. I am a sucker for dad speeches during weddings and I may have shed a tear when Megan’s dad gave his message to the newly weds. It was so special to see them being loved and adored by their family and friends.

Enjoy my favorites from this amazing day! Congratulations Zach and Megan, I am so thrilled to be a part of the new season of your guys’ lives.

Jordan and Clara || Wedding at Stella Springs

Where do I begin? This wedding is special because it was the first time that my husband joined me as my second shooter. I have been training him and he finally agreed to give it a shot… and oh, he did good.

This wedding is whimsical. Clara and Jordan found the most magical location for their wedding. They were married at Stella Springs Weddings in Stella, MO.

They could not have asked for a better day. It was raining all week and turned sunny on their wedding day with a perfect temperature. They had an outdoor ceremony near a small waterfall and the reception was held inside a barn. We had so much fun at this wedding. Jordan and Clara are such a sweet couple and they made us feel comfortable and appreciated.

Few highlights from their wedding day that I won’t forget is when Clara’s dad cried while I was taking their “daddy-daughter” pictures. It was the sweetest thing, making me want to get married again in the Philippines so I can see my dad cry that way. lol. Also, during the reception, the bride and bridesmaid decided to go outside and dip their feet in the water. It was so fun and a memory that the bride and her squad will remember for sure.

Enjoy all of these favorites from Jordan and Clara’s wedding. Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Adams! It was so fun celebrating the best day of your lives.

Sam and Annie | Crane, MO Wedding

Sam and Annie deserve all the love in the world. Their original ceremony location was cancelled but love is not cancelled and it definitely made a way despite all the hurdles.

They had a simple ceremony that was witnessed by their family and friends and officiated by Sam’s brother-in-law. It was followed with a reception that is full of dancing and celebration.

Sam and Annie, thank you for believing in me. It was a pleasure to be your photographer and capture the best day of your lives. You guys are adored by the people around you. You are both beautiful inside and out. My prayer is that you will have a lifetime of love and happiness. I hope our paths will cross again in the future.

Colton and Katie || Stella Springs Wedding

Colton and Katie are MARRIED! I am so excited because it is my second time photographing a wedding at Stella Springs. They had a beautiful summer wedding celebrated with family and friends.

The song with the lyrics, “forever young, I wanna be forever young” won’t stop popping in my head while looking at their photos. Colton’s last name is Young and truly his bride is now forever (Katie) young. Their made-of-honor even mentioned that they should have #foreveryoung as their wedding hashtag.

I love all the shades of blue from their wedding. They did an awesome job in making all the details flow and it was beautiful. They decorated the barn with all these pretty floral pieces and it was perfect.

Colton and Katie are the sweetest couple. You can really feel and see the love that they have for each other. I am so honored to get to know them. Their engagement session was so fun, so I knew that their wedding day would be no different.

Here are some few highlights from Colton and Katie’s wedding day.

-they decided not to do a first look but we planned on having them hold hands before the ceremony so they can read the special vows that they wrote for each other

-since they did not do a first look, Katie decided on doing a fake first look with the best man instead and it was the funniest thing ever

-their grandmothers served as the flower girls and it was so cute

-Colton crying his heart out when he saw his bride walk down the aisle.

Colton and Katie, thank you so much for having me as your photographer. It was such an honor to celebrate your special day and to get to know your family and friends as well. Congratulations again and praying for a lifetime of happiness and love.

Deklan and Madeline || Intimate Front Yard Wedding

How’s your “quarantine” going? There’s a lot of crazy and scary things in the world right now, so here’s a little sunshine that may brighten your day.

My heart aches for all my couples who has to reschedule due to this Covid pandemic. Deklan and Madeline planned a big wedding with their families and friends but because of the virus, everything changed. From 150 plus guests they have to lower it down to just their parents and siblings. Their love conquered the chaos and we were able to push through with the ceremony. Their wedding ceremony is a total mix of emotions. It made me laugh, cry, then laugh again and cry a little bit more. The day was so intimate, so special.

Hopefully after all these craziness, they will be able to celebrate with the rest of their families and friends in a reception that is scheduled later this year.

Deklan and Madeline, thank you for the trust you placed in me. Thank you for the very kind words. You are both beautiful and I hope that you will love reliving your wedding day through my eyes. May God bless you both as you start this new chapter.

Braydon and Caitlin || Wedding at the Veridian

Where do I even begin? This wedding holds a special place in my heart because it is the first ever wedding that I get to photograph. Braydon and Caitlin got married at The Veridian, located in the heart of historic downtown in Springfield, Missouri.

Their wedding day was gorgeous. It was raining all week but on the day of their wedding there was no single drop of rain and nothing stopped us from getting gorgeous portraits. I love the industrial backdrop and everything looked so classy.

Braydon and Caitlin are the sweetest couple and they are so easy to get along with. I also adore their cute bridal party and I am so amazed on how their families on both sides get along so well. They are surrounded and loved by people who support them 100% and that’s something that was really evident on their wedding day.

I am so grateful that I was able to serve Braydon and Caitlin on the best day of their lives. My favorite part of the day was after the ceremony. They decided to sneak out of the venue and just take everything in, breathe and spend the first few hour as Mr and Mrs Bell. They tagged me along with them, we walked around downtown and took the prettiest photos. They are such an amazing couple together and I can’t wait to see where life takes them!

Enjoy all of these favorites from their wedding day!
