I've always imagined that teachers have a similar experience as parents when they watch/see their students...their "kids"...grow up, go out into the world, and become awesome adults doing great things. Now I know this to be true. Years ago, Jason taught photography to a really wonderful group of high school students here in KC, at Brighton Academy. That was when he first discovered his love for teaching and working with young people, and it led him to design and teach many more classes directly through our studio over the next several years. Why am I telling you this? What does this have to do with a wedding post? Well, Katie used to be one of those high school students. So you can imagine our delight when she emailed us, told us she was getting married, and wanted us to photograph the day. We were thrilled! It was a beautifully simple and perfect celebration, and we were so thankful to be part of it. Katie and Jared, thank you so much for inviting us to document your story for you. We can't wait to see where you will go from here! Congratulations and EMAW!!!
Sometimes you meet people and you just instantly know that they are genuine, kind, caring, and just all around awesome people. Like to their core. That's how it was with Abby and Alex. They, and their families, welcomed us in to their homes and celebration on their wedding day, and we were so happy we could be there to document it all for them. From Abby getting ready in her childhood home, surrounded by all of her best friends (two and four legged), to the two of them being sent off as husband and wife with sparklers at the end of the night...and everything in between...it was perfect. Absolutely perfect. Thank you, Abby and Alex, for allowing us to be part of your day. It was an honor to tell your story.
