DeAnne + Michael | May 16, 2009

"And two shall become one"

Michael and DeAnne made a commitment before God to promise to love each other for the rest of their lives in the "Silent Chapel" on the grounds of Unity Village - Lee's Summit, Mo.

Family and friends came from all across the country to witness this happy union. The reception was held at the Hillcrest Country Club.

Dad - a proud father, walks his little girl down the aisle.
Just love this photo!


Coming Soon | Hannah + Chris

Saturday, May 23, Tailese and I headed to my old college stomping grounds - Emporia, KS. Home of the "Hornets". Emporia has indeed changed in the last 17-years. Yes, I'm getting old.

Hannah and Chris's wedding was eclectic with a touch of class. We had full reign to do whatever we wanted. Stay tuned for more of their wedding images.

Check out their engagement session on The Plaza.

Isn't this a clever idea? Signature souvenir cups for all the guests at the reception.

By way of Florida, DeAnne and Michael commemorated their wedding in Lee's Summit, MO on May 16. There will be more photos to come but Tailese and I wanted to share a few "teaser" photos from their wedding. Stay tuned for more...

Love this shot!
Michael just a little excited about getting "hitched".

Way to go Tailese on perfect timing with mother-nature and the wind.

Christy and Matt Engagement

Fun, fun, fun!

That’s all I can say about Christy and Matt. We had a ball during their e-session in the Westport area. You will see from the images below that the chemistry between the two can’t be broken. The couple will be getting married late May this year. Based on the fun I had, you can only imagine what fun we will have during their wedding.

Rachael's Senior Photo Session

If you’ve never visited the 18th & Vine district, you really should. It’s filled with so much history and incredible colorful backdrops. This was the perfect location for Rachael’s senior photos. We also took some photos along Paseo Blvd.

Surprise Mother's Day Gift

The week before Mother's Day, Walter, called me to ask if I would be willing to come to their home and take some pictures of him, his little girl - Addison and his son, Prescott. Walter wanted to surprise his wife, Jon, with a special Mother's Day present.

Addison is a precious gift and one who loved to be in daddy's arms.

Patrick Senior Photos

Most senior photo sessions that I photograph take place in the studio or at some eclectic location that compliments my subject. Well let's just say this photo session was a little different. Patrick, a 2009 Senior at Shawnee Mission West high school, wanted his pictures taken on the school grounds.

Heather + Jeremy | April 25

Heather and Jeremy committed their lives to each other Saturday, April 25 in the historic First Christian Church of Independence. Jeremy is a cool guy who reminds me of a good friend of mine. The groomsmen were a hoot and fun to work with. Heather and the bridesmaids have a shy spirit about themselves. Heather and her father could be twins :)

May God bless you both!
