Even though we moved to St. Louis we spent a good portion of our fall shooting in Kansas City. There was something nice and familiar about heading back to KC each weekend. That feeling of familiarity was even stronger when we made the drive in for Manuel and Caitlin’s  (friends turned clients) wedding. Their day was simple and sweet, which fit them to a tee, and we had a great time exploring a new pocket of downtown with them.



My friend Stacey even tagged along to shoot film & Polaroids.

A hallmark trait of our couples is that they are cool under pressure and adopt a “go with the flow” mentality. Danielle and Brycen fit that description to a tee. Most couples faced with a last minute venue and catering change would be on the verge of a meltdown by the time the wedding day hits. Instead, Danielle and Brycen kept their eyes on what was important on their big day: being surrounded by family and a host of international friends… and climbing into an abandoned castle at the request of their photographers. It’s safe say they were meant to be our clients.

One of the things we love about the couples we work with is the sheer diversity among them. Crafty indie weddings are all the rage right now, which we love, but it’s nice when an event comes along that is different in its simplicity. Ashley, an event planner by day, captured the simple elegant feel of her day with a muted color palette, but still managed to toss in some personality thanks to her awesome DIY plane themed save the dates and invitations. (Erik is a huge plane fanatic, as evidenced by their engagement session at the Airline History Museum.) I know you’re not here to hear about their details (bring on the images!) but when I thought about Ashley and Erik and what I could tell you, that’s what I kept coming back to. Something about the timeless, effortless, unstuffy details and flow of the day just sums them up for me.

TJ and Annie did a great job personalizing their day, which you probably already know is one of the things we love to see at a wedding. This personal touch was on everything from the reception venue (hello Boulevard Brewing Company!) to hand wrapping the bridesmaids bouquets to TJ’s Corvette that he inherited from his grandfather. The car even got a cameo during the creative time in the West Bottoms. Enjoy!

The weather is playing nice now, but we it wasn’t long ago that we were enduring the do days of summer. ANd they seemed to come early this year! Justin and Christine’s wedding day proved to be one of the stickiest of the summer. You know the kind where the humidity feels like a wall when you walk outside. So we were really lucky that they had a laid back wedding party and plenty of beverages (of the adult variety) to go around. They were good sports as the tromped the grounds of the Nelson Atkins Museum of Art for some shooting time. The party bus then made its way to the Hobbs Building to for a sweet outdoor ceremony and some more libations.
