I have to admit, I may be a little bit partial to this family! I have loved watching my sister & her family grow. It began back in the days when my niece was a newborn and I was working at a local portrait studio…and now to see her meet the love of her life, a surprise proposal, get married, gain a nephew, her getting pregnant, and adding the sweet little man Connor to the mix, I have literally watched her family grow thru my lens.
That being said, they sure like to put me thru my paces! Connor woke up late from his nap so we were in a race against the sun as we headed over to Nathanael Greene Park in Springfield to get as many of their Fall photos accomplished as we could. We were literally chasing the light as the sun was going down.

I had such an amazing evening meeting Brandon & Paige over the weekend at their engagement session! Since they were coming from out of town this was my first chance to meet & get to know this sweet couple. We were a little concerned with how the weather was going to treat us but ended up with a beautiful & sunny Fall day. We strolled thru the park and ended their session with the perfect sunset!

Paige & Brandon, Thank You for making your session so much fun! We can’t wait to celebrate your big day with you!

Lots of Love,

I have a special place in my heart for all military couples, so ever since I first spoke to Halle about photographing her & Austin’s wedding I have been counting down the days. As soon as Austin was able to return home we got them on the calendar for their engagement session! Halle is one of the sweetest people I’ve met in my life and once I saw these two together there was no denying how much they belong together. We started out their engagement session at the beautiful, historic square in Ozark, MO before heading somewhere to get in comfy clothes for the chilly air and sneaking in as much of the Autumn color as the evening would allow.

Halle & Austin, Words aren’t enough to tell you how excited I am to share a part of your story!

Lots of Love,

For Myriah & Adam’s engagement session we headed to Downtown Springfield, MO. We strolled thru downtown and then stopped at a nearby restaurant for a quick drink to warm up before heading out to beautiful Lake Springfield Park and Boathouse.
I have to say that while it may have been a bit on the chilly side, I had a great time getting to know these two and seeing how much fun they are together.

Adam & Myriah, Thank You for being a part of the JYP family! I seriously cannot wait until your wedding this coming Spring! I know it is going to be beautiful!

Lots of Love,

This past weekend we headed to the gorgeous Ritter Springs Park just north of Springfield for Dakota & Patric’s engagement session! Can I just say how much I absolutely adore these two together? They are so kind, genuine and down-to-earth (and they were not afraid to try anything we suggested). We had such a blast! P.S. How gorgeous is that dress!?!
Dakota & Patric – Thank You so much for choosing to be a part of the JYP Family! I am going to be counting down the days until your wedding! I know it is going to be amazing!

Lots of Love,

Josh & Sierra are such a sweet couple! I was really looking forward to this chance to get to know them a little bit more before their wedding next Fall.
For their engagement session on Saturday, we kept it personal by heading out to Josh’s family property. We got to explore a lot of different locations and ended the evening warming up by a camp fire.
Thank You both for making your session so much fun! I cannot wait for your wedding day!

Lots of Love,

I just adore Beth & Richard! They are such a wonderful couple. (They may have brought tears to my own eyes a few times.) There is no doubt how much love is between these two. 
While there may have been a chance for storms…their wedding day at Haseltine Estate​ was absolutely stunning. The sun peeked thru the clouds throughout the day and then touched down on the horizon just perfectly in time for an absolutely gorgeous sunset reception.

A big Thank You to Beth, Richard, and your family for sharing such an important moment in your love story with us. I wish you so much more happiness in your future together! <3

Lots of Love,

A little over a year ago I met one of the sweetest brides for a consultation and I spent the next year counting down until the wedding this weekend. Emma is one of the most genuine, kind-hearted people I’ve met in my life and after meeting Taylor I realized how perfect they are for one another. They are two puzzle pieces who just connect and I loved watching their picture-perfect day unfold. From getting ready, an emotional first-look, the sweet ceremony and a reception ending with a dance floor full of family & friends…each moment was filled with so much love.

Emma & Taylor, I am honored that I could share in your beautiful day and I am so excited to watch your love story continue.

Lots of Love,
