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,

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,

This past Fall I met Candace & Josh for a family session at Ritter Springs. I was so excited when I heard about their engagement and being able to get this sweet couple in front of my camera again!
This week we headed to Downtown Springfield​ for their Engagement Session! It was one of the hottest weeks of the Summer so far and they still looked AMAZING! I cannot wait for their big day!

I am extremely blessed to meet so many amazing couples thru JYP, but this weekend’s wedding was extra special. I watched one of my closest friends walk down the aisle to marry the one she loves. (Some of you might recognize her from assisting at one of your own weddings even.)

I’ve known Chrystal & Kendal since Elementary school. We have all 3 came and went in one another’s lives over the years but yet we have still been thru so much together too. I cried my eyes out the second she put that wedding dress on. I think being the photographer kind of went away for a second and all I cared about was being with my friend in that moment.

Chrystal, Thank You for being an amazing friend! I am so lucky to have you in my life. You looked beyond gorgeous and I am so happy that today could finally be that moment to celebrate with you & Kendal!
Congratulations my friends! I love you both!

Lots of Love,

This weekend we headed to Rogersville, MO for Chad & Maria’s gorgeous backyard wedding. (And let me tell you it was almost as if this beautiful home was made for weddings).

Whether it was the sweet ceremony or something in the small details, everything about their wedding was perfect. The bride looked absolutely stunning…(How amazing is that dress?)…and the bridal party was so much fun to hang out with during their photos!

Chad & Maria, Thank You for welcoming us into your family’s home and letting us celebrate with you! Congratulations!!

Lots of Love,

Over the weekend I met up with this super sweet couple for their engagement session! We made a stop Downtown Springfield before heading North to add a little bit of country into their session at Lost Hill Park. We played in the creek & danced in a field while I got to know them a little bit more! I seriously get the best & cutest couples in front of my camera! Congratulations again! I cannot wait to celebrate the big day with you! <3

Lots of Love,

When you have rain, hail, lightning and more on your wedding day, what are you to do? They say if it rains on your wedding day it is good luck, right?
We made a run for the nearest tree line as soon as the downpour turned into a sprinkle. Afterwards we headed to the gym for some shelter while the bridal party played basketball!

I think my favorite part of Chris & Maddison’s wedding day was the way that they couldn’t take their eyes off one another.
Going back thru their images I found so many photos of side glances and just pure adoration between them!

Chris & Maddison, Thank You for letting us celebrate with you, your family and friends today!
