Monochromatic Summer Kansas Wedding

Two blog posts in one night?! Say whatttt? I just had to blog this wedding since I literally just finished it and sent it off.

Emily and Ryan are two of the sweetest people I have ever met. I always love having engagement sessions to get to know a couple before their wedding day, but sometimes the stars don't align and that doesn't get to happen. It literally didn't feel like I had never really met them before their wedding day. They instantly felt like old friends, and their friends and family were so welcoming and sweet! It was super hot that day, and NO ONE complained about the heat, and everyhone was down for everything that I asked of them. I absolutely loved everything about their wedding. It was so simple and clean, yet still so classic and elegant.

It was everything a wedding should be, rolled into one. Full of love, people, and a huge dance floor. They paid attention to all the details, and everything fell into place so perfectly on the wedding day. We had so much fun run-in across rooftops of buildings downtown, and seriously had the most perfect light for all of the pictures. I cannot be happier with how they turned out, and I am so thankful they chose me to capture their day! <3

Classic Industrial Wichita Kansas Wedding

Okay, so I know I said I would be better at blogging, but life happens and I suck sometimes. I am vowing to myself that this year, I WILL BLOG CONSISTENTLY, and if I don't I give you all permission to smack me if you see me. Okay anyway! I though I would pick back up with one off y favorite weddings of all time. Lauren + Tayor Harding!

This wedding hit me in the feels, because I actually shot their elopement over a year ago. They decided to have their closest friends and family join them for a small intimate ceremony, but thought they still owed it to themselves to have a big wedding. And boy was it freaking worth the wait. 

The whole day was filled with love and joy, as two souls go to confess their love to all of their family and friends. Lauren started getting ready in the loft these two share, and we met up with Taylor later. Lauren and her gals were so inviting and literally down for whatever I asked of them. The first look with Lauren and her bridesmaids is one of my favorite moments I have ever photographed. To say I am obsessed with their love is an understatement, and in their pictures you can literally feel the love between them. I hope you enjoy these and it gives you a glimpse of what a special couple these two are. <3

Mid Century Modern Kansas City In Home Session

DDDAAMMMNNN Katie, back at it again with the blogs. Hahahahah I had too.

Anyways, I am SOOOO excited to finally share this session with you all. This was one of my all-time favorites. In homes have been my go to lately for people that want to have there pictures taken but the weather doesn't cooperate. And who doesn't love an excuse to get dressed down and just hang out. My photog bestie, Hana Alsoudi, she's amaze and you should check her out, reached out to see if we wanted to work on a shoot together. We planned everything out, location and overall vibe wise, and we realized we were dreaming up a couple that we thought didn't exist. Wrong. We put out a model call, and Dev reached out to me and sent pictures of them eating pizza in their hammock, and I texted Hana real quick and was like "GOT EM," and she was just as obsessed as I was. 

We met up with these cuties at Hana's apartment in downtown Kansas City, and they brought some killer clothes and even better music to listen too, music always helps my couples relax. We asked them to sit on the bed, and then the magic just sort of happened. We laughed like the whole time, played in the sheets, and even broke Hana's closet door, so hopefully her apartment complex doesn't read this.. 

I love when couples just let everything go and connect with each other. There inso pressure, handle an directing, and it's so comfortable being behind the camera just watching everything happen. I absolutely love my job and all the people that I have been able to connect with because of it. Here are some of my favorite shots from this day!

Kansas Flint Hills Engagement Session

Same day, new blog! 

This session might be one of my favorites of all time. The sunlight was unreal this day, and it started off by being super cold and rainy, but as soon as we started shooting the clouds went away and the sun was shining bright!

These two cuties, where to even start. They show up looking so fly and literally exactly what I had imaged them in it was crazy! We walked a little bit to a location in the Flint Hills near Emporia, also if you don't know in Kansas the flint hills is about the closest thing you can get to mountains! I absolutely love shooting out there! Naomi and Michael brought their two fur babies, and they ran and ran and ran around out in the open field. I seriously wish I had their energy. We snapped some pictures of the whole family, including the sweaters that Michael made the dogs! Then we switched out focus to the couple! These two were so down for anything, even if they had no clue what I was talking about. They totally put all their trust in me and I love how they turned out! Take a look at some of my favorites below!  

New Home Wichita Lifestyle Session

I really am making a comeback with the blogs, it's been a week, and this will be my second blog, with two more going up this week! WAHOOO! Finally getting my sh*t together! I am super excited about this session!

This sweet coupe invited me into their new home! Lisa had contact me before they moved in and wanted pictures to remember those first few weeks of living in their forever home! I showed up and was blown away, not only because their house is seriously so gorgeous, I mean..they had palm trees in their front yard..but I could just tell they were amazing people! I don't think I have ever laughed as hard as I did during that session, we actually needed up running over on time because we wouldn't stop talking! I love when I meet clients and they become friends and it really was just like I was hanging out with two friends I have known forever! We played pool, and shuffleboard..I think thats what they called it..lol and seriously had the freaking best time ever.

Huge thank you to these lovebirds for allowing me to capture their love in their beautiful new home! Can't wait for all the pool parties they are hosting this summer! <3

New Years Kansas In Home Lifestyle Session

Hey guys! It's been awhile but I'M BACKK! I had a lot of things happen this past year, and I promise to make a blog post all about my journey but for now, I will share the first session of the new year!

In home sessions have recently stolen my heart. I love just hanging out in leggings and a tee shirts, with a super cute coupe in their home. Nothing is more personal and I feel way more connected to a couple when they invite me into their home! These two actually won my new years giveaway, and I am so glad I drew their name out of the hat! They were so down for every crazy idea I threw out them! We got super cozy, danced around the living room, and laughed a ton! I cannot wait to work with these two in the future!

Lakeside Wichita Engagement Session

Hey guys! Remember when I said a month ago I was going to be more consistent with blogging..yeah I lied. Not on purpose, but I have been so busy this past month. I wanted to jump on here and share one of my all time favorite sessions! Janneth and Thomas' lakeside engagements were so fun and something totally out of the norm for me. We dodged a lot of snakes to be able to take pictures in front of the beautiful waterfall at Santa Fe Lake in Augusta! We were also super sweaty by the end, but then we jumped in water to cool things off a bit. That part of the session was my fave. Because honestly, I was just standing there in the water telling them to splash each other and they did the rest. I am so happy for you guys and I cannot thank you enough for letting me take your engagements! So much love. <3

Kansas Sun-Filled Anniversary Session Nikki+Tyler

Hey guys!! I'm back to blogging and I promise this time, I will be more consistent! I thought I would sit down today and blog one of my all time favorite sessions! Nikki & Tyler!

Nikki had reached out to me on social media and was telling me about how she lives in Utah, and she's a photographer that wanted to connect with some locals here to just hang out with and shoot around together! Her husband, Tyler, accepted an internship at a company here in Wichita. so they packed up and moved to here for the summer! I was so excited that these two gave me the opportunity to capture some of their love story here in Kansas! They are super cute, obvi, and we had some nice weather so I asked them if they wanted to shoot, and they were totally down. SO in love, absolutely adorable, and just very much my kind of peeps, so I was ecstatic when I got a yes! 

We made sure to run wild in some wheat fields, and take full advantage of the Kansas sunsets we are known for. Thank you guys again for allowing me to be part of your time here in this state! 

Much love,

Katie <3
