saint rose catholic church last second magic wedding

There’s a pandemic. We all can acknowledge that and move on. Moreover, we all realize the way that it’s changed our day-to-day life and the wedding industry as we know it. Madelyn and Quincy knew they wanted to get married on their 4-year dating anniversary. Luck would have it that in 2020 it was a […]

Grand Street Cafe is obviously a grand ole cafe, but it’s also a tucked away wedding venue! When I walked into Grand Street, it was absolutely and undeniably adorable. There was all the room in the world to personalize the venue and vendors could be cleverly tucked away for things like dinner and DJ’ing. Jenny […]

couple poses in front of sweet clovers farm wedding barn

I have only ever heard great things about Herrman, MO. It lived up to every bit of the hype. Melanie & Ben’s Sweet Clover Farm wedding was so full of personality, I could barely stand it. I laughed the entire time and was so touched to see how much everyone cared for each other. The […]

It has been almost three years since my last wedding at The Bride and the Bauer, and I missed it so much. The brick, the getting ready rooms,  & the large windows make for an amazing venue. It’s only fitting that two amazing people would get married here. This wedding had it all. I was […]

couple feeding each other pie during kc national golf club reception

The KC National Golf Club is a gorgeous establishment with lots of class, simplicity, and room for people in love. For the longest time, I knew Bridget without actually knowing Bridget. I worked with her sister-in-law at Cerner where I got to hear second-hand about her budding love story with Jordan. When Hallie Sigwing told […]

Uptown Theater Wedding brides on the stage during marriage ceremony

Shelby and Emma had an Uptown Theater Wedding and I could expect nothing less. It was vibrant, beautiful, and full of love. These wonderful women and I met under unfortunate circumstances. I don’t want to dwell on it, but they’re one of the big driving forces of my LGBTQ+ vendor list. They’re also why I’m […]

Fall in the midwest is so hit or miss. We postponed this engagement from Wednesday with a hellacious windchill to just 4 days later which was 10 degrees warmer. We were so worried that it wouldn’t be warm enough for this engagement session. Thankfully, we were dead wrong. Shawnee Mission Park was gorgeous and the […]

couple cuddles with dog during shawnee mission park engagement

Stacie and Jon introduced me to Peanut Butter Whiskey, so I’m not being dramatic when I say I would die for them. These two are downtown OP dwellers so we made plans to head out to their space for photos. They are self-professed cuddle bugs and that made them the absolute easiest to photograph. After […]

Loose Park engagement sessions used to be so easy to come by. Somehow, recently, I realized I hadn’t been to my favorite park in quite some time. So when these two Kansas City transplants mentioned it for their engagement photos, I was ecstatic. I’ve never met a couple who enjoys media as much as Wes […]

monochromatic loose park engagement session couple bumping hips

This Kauffman Center Engagement Session will make you cry, then smile, then wonder who the hell gave these gals the permission to be so cute. Jamie & Mel reached out to me after finding me on the ‘gram. (Take that, algorithm!) They filled out their couple questionnaire so thoroughly and I can’t even tell you […]

First of all, where are all of these Kansas city backyards hiding? Luke’s was absolutely perfect for their second anniversary session. In my website re-design, my past two sessions of these two are gone! Never fear, I’ll correct that soon, but in the meantime I’ll just tell you a story. A story about how one […]

Wonder Wonder is an art installation in Oak Park Mall that is totally worth visiting. As the Schlesselman’s unofficial official anniversary photographer, we headed out to get some not your average anniversary photos. Last year, Lauren, Cole, and I headed out to the Nelson Atkins Museum and photographed their first official wedding anniversary with some […]
