The Sellers Family | Fall 2022 Family Photos

A sneak peek at family session number 2 this past weekend was for my baby brother and his beautiful family! I love these kiddos so much! (It hit me this weekend just how much my sweet niece is truly a mini-me). They were all such troopers. Steph really wanted some updated family photos but she knew I didn’t have a lot of availability so they dressed for their Fall photos, despite it being about 85 degrees outside. I’m pretty sure this was probably the fastest I’ve ever taken their photos. We knocked out all the must-have shots pretty quickly. I’ve learned over the years what she’ll actually print and hang on the walls. BUT I was still able to sneak a few more “unposed” photos into the mix. It made it extra special that for some of the photos we were able to use our family’s property that our grandma left to us when she passed away. I’m glad we can continue to create new memories there.

    The Mead Family | Fall 2022 Family Photos

    I thought nothing could beat photographing my baby cousin’s engagement & wedding photos. Her wedding day was one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever photographed – but then this past weekend, I was proved wrong. Seeing her with her own sweet, perfect baby girl topped it all. Plus, this was the first time I finally got to meet Molly so I kept ahold of her as much as possible. I miss a lot of family moments with my job – so I really have to squeeze in a lot on the days I am able to make it! Luckily, my family has been understanding and so they scheduled their family photos on a day we were all going to be together anyway. I’m so glad we did these! I love Macy & Trevor – but come on, let’s be honest…Miss Molly stole the show.

    Macy & Trevor, I love you guys! I cannot wait to continue to capture these memories with your perfect little family!!!

    Lots of Love,
    Jessica

      Savannah + Steve | Engagement Photos at Nathanael Greene Park

      Savannah & Steven’s engagement session fell on the first day of Fall. And Fall decided to give us a quick peek at what was coming. The weather came in nice and chilly – unfortunately bringing a little bit more overcast and rain than we would have liked! BUT it meant wearing their flannels was just a little bit easier than if had it been nearly 90 degrees like the day before. We met up at Nathanael Greene and strolled around the untypically quiet park. It was kind of nice to have it nearly to ourselves. It meant we could actually chat a little easier while we got to know this sweet couple.

      Steven & Savannah, Thank You for choosing to share these memories with us! I am so excited to celebrate with you this Spring!!

      Lots of Love,
      Jessica

        Lorin + Tyler’s Engagement Photos at Fellows Lake, Springfield MO

        To say I absolutely adore Lorin & Tyler would be an understatement. From the moment Lorin first contacted me this past Winter, I immediately fell in love. This girl has an absolute heart of gold. She is so extremely sweet and compassionate. I counted down the days until her and Tyler’s engagement session this past weekend. I hadn’t had a chance to speak to Tyler yet either – so I was anxious to meet them both. Once they arrived – I instantly could see how perfect these two are together. Tyler is just as genuinely kind as Lorin. I really loved getting to spend a relaxed evening with them learning more about how they met and began their love story. The entire session they were constantly bringing out the best smiles in one another (and just making my job a little too easy). May cannot get here soon enough!!!

        Tyler & Lorin – THANK YOU for choosing to share these beautiful memories with me. I already feel so lucky to know you both!

        Lots of Love,
        Jessica

          Brady & Kaitlyn’s Wedding at Big Cedar’s Dogwood Canyon

          Kaitlyn & Brady traveled all the way from Colorado to celebrate their wedding day here at Big Cedar’s Dogwood Canyon. We started out the day at a local Airbnb where the couple was getting ready. The guys were hanging out in the basement playing pool, while the ladies were relaxing & finishing hair & makeup upstairs! While there was joy, I can’t help but note the undercurrent of sadness in these moments. Kaitlyn’s mom was unable to participate in the wedding festivities due to health issues and my heart was aching for all of them. Even though we weren’t able to get photos I am so glad she was able to join us briefly during Kaitlyn’s first look with her dad – then sharing a private moment with her daughter before we left for Dogwood Canyon.

          After hiding from one another all morning, Kaitlyn and Brady were extremely anxious to FINALLY see one another. Both of their faces were filled with happiness during their first look behind the Hope Wilderness Chapel. After sharing this special moment it was time to hop on the shuttle for portraits throughout the park. It was one of my favorite parts of the day – just because we got to spend some time really seeing how they are together as a couple before the busy events of the rest of the wedding day began. After portraits, their family and friends began to arrive at the Chapel for the ceremony. Even though nothing can beat the views outside – I love the romance of this dim & dusky rustic chapel. After exchanging vows and rings, Brady & Kaitlyn were pronounced husband and wife. I found my heart aching for Kaitlyn’s mom all over again during these special moments and vowing to myself to capture as much as possible for her to look back on.

          After the ceremony, it was time for everyone to travel to the gorgeous reception on the Canyon Grill Patio. This is absolutely one of my favorite reception locations. Nothing beats the sun setting over the patio, to the hum of the idyllic Indian Cliff Falls in the background. Brady & Kaitlyn cut their cake with laughter before speeches and then shared a dance with one another. Thunder was occasionally rumbling in the distance as their parent dances began, but while the clouds came in heavy, the rain stayed away. Nothing was going to stop the party! The couple did a traditional bouquet and garter toss before continuing to celebrate the night away with drinks & dancing. And then after dancing the rest of the night away,  it was time to say goodbye. Everyone cheered them away while waving their glow sticks in the air!

          Kaitlyn & Brady, Thank You so much for choosing to share these moments & memories with us!

          Lots of Love,
          Jessica
