Shane and Patty :: Married in Kansas City

I love getting the opportunity to go back to my hometown of Kansas City to shoot a wedding. It's great to photograph a couple there because, even though I grew up there, I hardly explored the city at all. Every turn and corner and alley and eclectic neighborhood... they're all fresh to me. And I love that.

So when I found out I'd be shooting Shane and Patty's wedding at Club 1000 in Kansas City, I was elated.

Shane and several of his groomsman are serving our country in the Marines.

Because the sun sets so early in the winter, Shane and Patty decided to see each other before the wedding so we could enjoy the sunlight in their photos.

Jon and I drove around the day before the wedding scouting out locations for the wedding day and I came across this parking garage that I though would work rather well. Jon looked me like I was crazy... a parking garage?? But I think it was a pretty fantastic setting, don't you agree?

Cute kids make me smile :)

These next two are my favorite favorite favorite.

When the evening is over and I see something like this, parked outside, I get excited

WOW, Patty looks like one of the happiest brides I've seen you photograph, like at ANY SECOND she's going to burst into a giggle fit! I realized that even through the interwebz it was contagious and I was smiling, too!

Wow, these are great!

If you are ever in KC visiting and want to do a shoot, let me know I can hook you up!
