Newlywed couple walks through the Overland Park Arboretum Wedding

Cara and Andy reached out to me about their Overland Park Arboretum Wedding when it was clear COVID-19 had other plans for their union. Their plans involved a grand traditional Indian wedding to celebrate Anudeep (Andy) and Cara’s union and his family would come and celebrate and everything would be perfect. We were able to […]

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 […]

Chark & I (that’s Charleen & Mark) headed out to Red Door Wine Store last week for their engagement session. I quickly knew upon their inquiry that we were kindred spirits. Ean & I also used our celebrity couple name (Tean) to create an e-mail to organize all of our wedding e-mail shenanigans. It felt […]

Red Door Wine Store Engagement Ring Shot

Okay, listen to me. You will NEVER see another in-home session as cute as this and you will also never catch me in the snow again. Cherish this historic home engagement session as if it is your last. Frankly, it might be. I don’t know how to freaking top it. I’ve said it before but […]

Historic Home Engagement Session

Rebecca and Benjamin live their lives day-to-day in Nashville, TN. After a long stint of being in a long-distance relationship? They closed that gap physically and then got freaking engaged. So what did they do? They drove all the way from Nashville for this amazing and elegant Nerman Museum Engagement session. These two will be […]

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 […]
