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!

This past weekend we headed to Branson, MO to share in part of Courtney & Brenden’s big day! I’ve been looking forward to their Wedding ever since we met at their engagement session here in Springfield. These two have so much love for one another and their first look brought tears to my eyes. So so many sweet moments filled this day and even some rain & clouds couldn’t take that away.

Courtney & Brenden, I am beyond honored to have shared this special day with you! You have such a sweet & wonderful love with one another and I cannot wait to watch your love story continue!

Lots of Love,

This weekend I met one of the sweetest couples! We started out the beautiful & sunny afternoon at Ritter Springs Park just North of Springfield, Missouri. They even braved some slightly chilly water! Afterwards we headed to Andy’s Frozen Custard​, which is where they had their first date!

Thank You for letting me share in these moments with you! I’m so excited for your wedding! <3

Lots of Love,

This sweet couple’s family has popped up on my blog a few times but last night we snuck out for a quick engagement session at Lake Springfield while Kendal had time home from work. I’ve known these two since Elementary school. (Crazy, right?) Now in just a couple of months they get to say “I Do” in front of those who mean the most. I cannot wait to celebrate this next chapter in their story!

Something that means a lot to me is making sure that an engagement session with me is more than just pretty pictures. My goal is to capture the true spirit of each couple in front of my camera.
For Blaec & Caitlin’s Winter engagement session I think we did absolutely that. We spent time walking around beautiful Historic C-Street learning more about one another and their story. They love flea markets, reading, playing video games and just cuddling up together. And let me tell you, they have that part down. I couldn’t keep them apart! We ended the evening with some hot chocolate at the always wonderful Big Momma’s Coffee and Espresso Bar!
(I promise I don’t bribe my couples to take pictures at Coffee Houses…it just happens…really…I promise!) <3

Caitlin & Blaec, Thank You so much for giving me this time to get to know you better. I know your wedding day is going to be so amazing!

Lots of Love,

This past week was my last wedding of the year and I am so glad I could finish 2016 with this amazing couple! I don’t often book a lot of holiday weddings but as a military couple this was close to my heart.
Maddie and David’s intimate Winter in the Woods, Christmas Eve Wedding was absolutely beautiful! (Isn’t her dress just stunning?)
Thank You both for letting me celebrate with you and the ones you love! I wish you both so much happiness in your future together! #MerryMcAlisters
