Ian and Jill – Kansas City Wedding Videography – Highlight Video

You just have to love a couple who has their “fur-baby” as a ring bearer. Jill and Ian were such a pleasure to work with on their wedding day and had so many beautiful details that Kelley Ruf and Trapp Floral created for them. Not to mention an intimate ceremony at the most charming little chapel and AMAZING reception at my favorite Kansas City venue, The Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. But I think the thing that I loved about this day the most was watching these two celebrate their long road to becoming a family. They have known each other since they were children and just watching them together and with their families it is clear they are meant to be together and will have a long happy life together. Plus, they had their fur-babies at their wedding! You really can’t beat that!

Spring Ducks and Babies – Kansas City Child Photography

This has become quite the annual event for us – Spring Ducks and Babies! I think this might be our 5th year doing these mini-sessions and we have SO MANY families who come back! I honestly think out of the 13 families I saw over the weekend, there was only one new one! This is the reason I do them year after year. Yes, the ducks are cute, but getting to see former bridal clients bring their babies in and special portrait clients come in year after year is really amazing. The ducks will go to their permanent home tomorrow, a friend with some land and a pond not too far away. We spent the evening playing with them at my house today – my kids will miss them and their ducky adventures. I am mostly happy to get my downstairs bathroom back!

Here are a few peeks into the fun that was had over the weekend! You can see more on our Facebook page!

Corporate Video and Photo – Bootcamp Fitness KC – Kansas City Corporate Video

Kansas City Corporate Video

So excited to share this new website update that Coach Rut just launched for the amazing Bootcamp Fitness! We are proud to have produced all the photos AND video on this website. This is the very first AND BEST crossfit and bootcamp gym in Kansas City, and if you are thinking about starting a bootcamp or crossfit workout, you can just stop looking and come here. I have been working out here for over three years and love it! It prepares me for my summer triathlons and keeps me fit all year. So happy that Rut asked us to update his photos – the video is still one of my most favorites! One of the things I love about this promotional video is how the energy and movement tells the story of what happens in this gym. These images and the quiet support of Rut looking over his athletes is really what BCF is all about. That and the killer WODs. Web design by the talented people at Bright Coconut

Slowmotion Video Booth – Feature on Rangefinder Magazine!

Now this is pretty cool. I got a call out of the blue a few months back from a writer at Rangefinder Magazine. For those of you who don’t read photography magazines, this is a good one. She was interested in my slow-motion video booth and we had a great conversation about it. Fast forward January, and I had a few minutes to run into Barnes and Noble with Lily to see if the article was in the magazine. IT WAS! With my screen shot image as the main image – and some great quotes too! So exciting and pretty amazing really. Big thank you to my sweet couple and all their guests for looking SO AMAZING in their slow motion video booth at their wedding. It really is just SO FUN. And you must check out the full spread of the article in Rangefinder. Just. So. Cool!


Here is a peek at the video if you missed it a few months ago.

Baby G – Newborn Family Portraits – Kansas City

I have a special family here to share. It is always amazing to get to do newborn portraits for my former bridal clients, but even more special when they are family. And even MORE special when I remember seeing the daddy of the baby when he was brand new. Feeling a little “mature” here, but more than that, just really happy for my cousin and his wife. Congratulations on your new little man – he is perfect!

A Dots Marriage Proposal

I was so excited when I got the email from Dots asking if I would help them with Shawn’s proposal to Cassie. He had written them several weeks before asking for help in proposing to his girlfriend using her favorite IOS game, Dots. To his surprise they actually wrote back and were excited about helping him! We met the week before to do an interview and make a plan for the proposal so we would be hidden while shooting but still have a great shot and great audio. We managed to surprise Cassie and make a lovely little video for them to share with their family and friends! Congratulations Shawn and Cassie – hope you play Dots for years and years and years!


Merry Christmas from Kansas City!

We started making Christmas videos last year instead of Christmas cards and had so much fun it has sort of turned into something of a tradition. My family is used to me bringing Santa Hats all over the place and will break into Carols all times of the year! Hope you all have a Happy Holiday and we are super excited about a wonderful 2014!

Here is my little family in Santa Hats!

Mollie and Brian – Kansas City Wedding Video – Mission Hills Country Club

I loved Mollie right away when we met months ago to talk about her wedding day. I had filmed many of her friends weddings as well and we just hit it off from the start. When we talked a few months before the wedding day and she told me her Dad was very ill it broke my heart. I was preparing myself for a very difficult wedding day full of sadness and honestly was worried about getting through it with the memories of my own Dad’s fight. Mollie and Brian’s day couldn’t have been farther from what I had in my mind at all. It was one of the most joyful days I have filmed, filled with gratitude, love, celebration and happiness. Mollie and Brian glowed, their friends celebrated and their families were both so joyful. It was a beautiful day and I was so honored to have been included in it. Congratulations Mollie and Brian!
