Abby and Ryan || Market 116 Engagement Session

Abby and Ryan decided to take their engagement photos at the same location where they are having their wedding- Market 116. It is a unique, industrial wedding venue settled in Buffalo, MO.

These two are getting married in May and after talking to Abby about her wedding plans, details and colors, it is making me so excited to capture the best day of their lives.

Abby and Ryan, I had a blast capturing your engagement photos and I cannot wait for your wedding. Enjoy these favorites from this fun day.

Rever Workshop Bridal Portraits at Sparrow Lane

Part 2 of some photos I took from the winter solstice inspired Rever Workshop at Sparrow Lane. There were two bridal portraits. One was in the chapel and the other one was at the loft. Sparrow Lane is so picturesque. Every inch of that venue is beautiful and our gorgeous brides from the workshop definitely made the portraits even more beautiful.

Here are some of my favorites…

Emma and Keegan|| In-Home Engagement Session

While we were picking locations for Emma and Keegan’s engagement session Emma told me that she wanted to do an in home session and that she have the perfect house for it. Keegan’s grandma was so sweet to let us use her beautiful home.

Keegan and Emma were so fun and easy to get along not to mention they are one of the sweetest couple I know. I cannot wait to photograph their wedding this August at Market 116.

Here are some of my favorites from their engagement session.

Basic Invite: one-stop site for wedding invitation suites, save the dates and change of dates

I know my blog posts consist mostly of engagements and weddings but I found something awesome, something that I am really impressed and really excited about and I can’t wait to share.

If you have been following me long enough, you know that I love styling wedding invitations. Shooting invitation suite is probably one of my favorite things to do during weddings. I came across a company that made my wedding invite dreams come true and more. That is Basic Invite.

Basic Invite is a free wedding website that is completely customizable. It is mobile friendly making it so easy to customize invites for every occasion.

They have almost unlimited color options, over 40 different colors of envelopes and over 900 wedding sets to choose from.

They also have instant previews online so you can see your customized cards and make sure that it is exactly how you want it down to the little details.

Basic Invite allows customers the ability to order a printed sample of their invitation so they can see the card’s paper quality and how it will print before they have to place their final order. I ordered few samples and I tell you, they did not disappoint.

They even make sure that the back portion of the invites are on point.

Another fun thing that they are offering is a free address collection service. To avail this, all you have to do is to share a link via social media or email, collect addresses and get free envelope printing. You can also have the option to use their seal and send wedding invitations. It is an all-in-one wedding invitation with a tear-off RSVP post card included.

Did I mention that they also have a large selection of wedding save the dates? Get the wedding planning going by sending pre-invitations to your guests officially announcing your wedding date. Basic Invite offers foil save the dates, save the date magnets and postcards that you can coordinate with your wedding invitation. So many creative ways to announce your wedding date.

With all these features and services they offer, I can say that this is definitely a one-stop site for wedding invites.

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.
