Luke – 6 months

Ahhh, this little guy. I’ve loved this family forever and filmed his Mom and Dad’s wedding. Just love all his sweet smiles and personality. I really do have the very best job. I can’t wait to see how cute you are next time I see you as a walking baby Luke!

Girls on the Run Coaching Training Video Series – Directors Cut – Kansas City Non-Profit

This was one of those projects that I was so honored to get to produce and so proud of what we were able to achieve. Girls on the Run is a non-profit that I have been involved with for several years, as a mom of a runner and a coach, so when they called me to ask if I could help them create a series of films to use in their coaches training I was beside myself excited. I followed two teams of girls and coaches through last seasons training and ended the filming with the 5K run at the Chiefs Stadium. We created six videos that follow the GOTR curriculum that will be used in the training of new and returning coaches. I am really proud of them all. You can see the series HERE. Be careful, you might just have to start your own chapter of Girls of the Run!

This is the Directors Cut of the film we created of the actual run that all the girls and their families participate in at the end of the season. So very sweet!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in Hats!

We want to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Peaceful Solstice, and Happy New Year! It has been a busy year for us as a family and a wonderful year with many amazing corporate and bridal clients. We are so thankful to have you in our lives and can’t wait to see what 2015 holds! Not to mention what kind of crazy things I will be able to talk my family into doing in Christmas Hats next year.

New Studio Location – Bonfire, in Mission Kansas

I am super excited to announce our new studio location is in the amazing new space called Bonfire in Mission Kansas. This is a beautiful studio full of super creative and brilliant friends and I am beyond thrilled to get to be a part of this group! I will miss the River Market, but this space is so close to my home and I am thrilled to be in a place with a group of such talented people. Take a minute to check out the website and hopefully I will see you soon at a show or consultation!

Jamie and Taylor – Kansas City Wedding Video – Sneak Peek Trailer

Didn’t you know that Kansas City is the HOTTEST destination wedding location? Actually perhaps it should be! Beautiful museums, fabulous BBQ, friendly people, The Royals, and cows. Well, not too many cows really, but hopefully Jamie and Taylor didn’t mind that. This adorable couple and pretty much all their family and friends came to Kansas City from New York & the East Coast to celebrate the most beautiful wedding weekend. The team at Simple Elegance did an amazing job keeping things calm and collected and of course the Nelson-Atkins was stunning with Trapp Floral Design making magic as usual. The best part however, was getting to watch this sweet couple start a family together and watch them loving each other. So very sweet!

Tiffany and Rich – Kansas City Wedding Videography – Sneak Peek Trailer – The President Hotel

These two were so sweet together – just look at how Rich looks at his bride during their first look. This wedding is a beautiful example of how special that first look can be. Tiffany and Rich owned their moment together and as far as they were concerned they were the only two in the entire hotel at that moment. So very sweet. As usual The Michael Beers Band rocked the reception and there wasn’t a guest that didn’t get out on the dance floor, I don’t think I have seen Blue Bouquet design a venue more beautifully. Just stunning! Thank you for letting us help you preserve it!

Not to mention the amazing venue and transformation of the Grand Ballroom in Kansas City! Just amazing.

Sarah and Jason – Kansas City Wedding Videography – Sneak Peek Trailer

These two were so fun! I haven’t done a country wedding in a while – kind of surprising since we are in Kansas City! Sarah and Jason’s day was so uniquely theirs with beautiful words and family and friends, cowboy boots, a beautiful rustic feel at the reception, a stop at a super unique Irish bar, and portraits at a winery in Kansas! WOW! It was a joy to see them love each other and share so much of themselves with their guests. Congratulations guys – I can’t wait to complete your Country Wedding Edit!
