Michelle & Nathan wedding

Michelle & Nathan… I’m still in process of submitting some of these to buzzfeed. I really don’t need to say much more than that about this wedding. 😉

Ok, maybe a little more…

These two are CRAZY, in the best possible way (Michelle, I still have yet to see anyone that agile in a wedding dress). And of course, crazy for eachother. Thanks for inviting me to document a truly fun day.

Makenzie & Nate wedding

Mackenzie & Nate are lovely people with a fuller reception that I’ve seen in some time. When this many people show up to your wedding and reception (record observed number of simultaneous “cupid shuffle” dancers for me), you’ve gotta be good people. Or famous. I don’t think they’re famous. So that seems to answer what kind of people they are… 😉

Enjoy perusing this set from the day!

Kaitlyn + Dak :: married, oh yeah!

    What a dream wedding this was for me to shoot. Super laid back people, great conversation between (and during) shooting, unseasonably gorgeous weather, an intense passion between the couple so beautiful to capture, plenty of time allowed on my part to get everything I needed to get, and just a general sense of fun and people refusing to take themselves too seriously… even if it IS their day.

    That’s a pretty common vibe to all the dandy brides and grooms I have the pleasure of working with. I am lucky, lucky, lucky… or, to phrase it more accurately, very very blessed, to have the clients I have. 

    Enough jibba jabba (as Mr. T would put it). On with the show!

kinda want this to be a magazine cover. Sooooo… which one of you magazines is going to do that? 🙂

Kaitlyn apologized for downing a hamburger during portrait time. I said ‘don’t apologize… go AT IT!’ 

(PS… whatever fast food chain that was… we can’t even SEE your patties. For real. That’s a pathetic burger).

anticipation.

beautiful St Peters’ church, here in downtown Joplin.

Yay!

we switch to drama pretty quick.

this old school spiral staircase at St Peters’ is one of my absolute favorite spots. The light is so beautiful in there…. perfect for catching the intimacy I wanted to convey for this VERY-in-love and passionate couple.

these next two were some of the couples’ favorite shots from the day… the ones I was thinking ‘this will probably be a little too far out’… goes to show, you should never argue with your gut. 🙂

lots more pictures after the break… click on to keep going!

the reception was so nicely done. Love the colors and the attention to detail. Love Springhouse gardens, the venue where this took place. And cupcakes. I really love cupcakes.

one of the simplest shots of the day, but also one of my favorites. The red really ‘pops’ (yep, that’s the token art class 101 word you were looking for).

some guys need a little coaching on how to give that GQ look. (No amount of coaching would ever work on me if the lens were flipped, actually). But not this guy… no sir.

oh, we got normal bridesmaid pictures too. But I prefer these…

EPIC HIGH FIVE!! I may start demanding one of these for every shoot from here on out.

the flower girl requested she and the bride go for a spin. The sweet bride obliged. 

1st dance

HOLD ON!

let the wild rumpus start!

MAN he got into it. Just glad I was there with a camera.

final shot of the night. Last shot doesn’t usually turn out this epic. It was a beautiful night!

Kevin dances.

    Every now and then, I have a reception so crazy, so energetic, so dance-tastic, that I have to dedicate a blog post to it.

    But this is the first time that I’ve dedicated a blog post solely to ONE INDIVIDUAL at such a celebration. 

    Kevin, you put on those moves without an ounce of alcohol. You danced without abandon, fiercely, never running low on energy, with as dramatic a dance-floor presence as I’ve probably ever had the privilege to witness. Your mighty poise, your intensity, your ability to wield small children within your routine, deserves attention. 

    That’s right, Kevin…. this post is for you.

This one cracks me up. It was my photo editor Michelle who noticed the boy in the background…

I will deviate from Kevin for just a moment to show he’s not the only one that put on the moves…

Guess what this song is. 

image

Yep. That’s a rousing chorus of ‘Iris’ by Goo Goo dolls…

And here’s some harlem shuffle.  (where’s Kevin? Up on stage, videoing for the youtube video, of course!)

Here’s to you, Kevin… and to Camille & Luke, the bride and groom! You can see more from their big day (because, after all, this day was about them) here.

Kristen + Billy:: married

   

Crazy, hilarious, fun. Billy & Kristen are a couple to not take their wedding day toooo seriously (of course they take the marrying each other part seriously)

– and all for the better. From the gorgeous preparation shots to the ridiculous reception ones, this was a great day to shoot! 🙂

more after the break!

kristen’s brothers got to co-serve as flower girls! 

you can only hold the romantic poses for so long before a little of this has to slip out.

It was important to the couple to do a couple of shots by the (still standing) cross of st Mary’s… so cool!

I love this guy. Another to add to my growing album of fun relatives w/ cameras at weddings….

a cruel penance for whoever ‘lost’ (made less) the dollar dance… push ups, for both bride & maid of honor…

how else would a football player do the garter ‘toss’?

A fun little game where bride & groom had the chance to hold up the shoe of whomever they felt qualified best for the question asked. The question in this shot might’ve been something along the lines of ‘who will be in charge of the checkbook?’ I am pretty sure it wasn’t ‘who will wash the dishes’…

and then everyone BOOGIED!
