Prairie Hill Vineyard Engagement Session: Alexis and Josh

Alexis and Josh are seriously some of the sweetest people I have had the honor of meeting. I was thrilled when they told me they were getting married at Prairie Hill Vineyard. I have yet to shoot a wedding there but its been high on my list of places I want to photograph! We were […]

Engagement Session: Beth and Chris

Here’s a fun fact about Beth and Chris; they are actually my SECOND 2020 couple whose names are Beth and Chris, crazy huh? They live in KC but made the trip down to Wichita so that we could knock out there engagement session ASAP! I rarely shoot on Sunday’s but this was the only date […]


Engagement Session: Madison and Tyler

Madison had her heart set on shooting on a road that was lined with trees on each side. We decided to check out Prairie Sunset Trail on the west side. The trail spans 15 miles from Garden Plain through Goddard and continues to S. Hoover, Rd in Wichita. When I arrive at a location the […]


Engagement Session: Emma and Caleb

I always allow couples to choose where we are going to do their engagement session. Most people don’t have a location in mind and ask for suggestions which I gladly offer depending on what kind of environment they are drawn to. Emma and Caleb knew exactly where they wanted to have their session! They chose […]


Engagement Session: Aspen and Landon

Almost every couple I photograph mentions that they are worried about being awkward in front of the camera and warns me that might be the case during their engagement session! Aspen mentioned a similar statement to me when we first arrived downtown for the engagement session. You wouldn’t have guessed that was a thought that […]


Engagement Session: Erin and Alex

This engagement session was full of multiple firsts! This was actually Lara’s first engagement session that she has tagged along to photograph with me and I loved having her there. Not only does she capture amazing photos, but she also brings a relaxed energy that balances out my “over the top-ness” during a session. Next […]


Pawnee Prairie Park Engagement Session: Erica and Brett

So I have to give a shout out to Erica and Brett! You wouldn’t be able to tell by these photos, BUT it was like 30 degrees out during their session and they trucked through it with smiles on their faces and didn’t complain once! You guys are the real MVP’s! When I first connected […]


Downtown Wichita Engagement Session: Baylee and Landon

Over the years I have come to find that the more comfortable a couple is with you as a person, the more comfortable they will be in front of the camera. This is why I love to grab a coffee or a beer with couples when they are considering booking Lara and I for their […]


Pawnee Prairie Park Engagement Session: Erin and Marcos

I met Erin in 2019 at a wedding. Actually, she was a bridesmaid in Blair‘s wedding (a recent CCP Bride). It’s still so crazy to me that people enjoy the time that they have with Lara and me as bridesmaids and groomsmen, that they reach out to us to shoot their wedding when they get […]


Wichita Engagement Session: Anne and Guy

Did you WOW when you saw how stunning Anne and Guy in these photos? I thought the same thing when they pulled up for their session and got out of their car! Anne and Guy both live in the College Hill area of Wichita, so naturally, they wanted to incorporate the area into their session. I’m so glad we chose to shoot at the Crown Uptown….
