The Beyer Family

The Beyer family welcomed their newest edition, Ezra, last August. We couldn't get out to take family portraits until November but Jason and Harmonie were more than willing to excuse our tardiness. Here's some of the fantastic photos we captured that fall day.

There's no color enhancement on Ezra's eyes in the above pic, btw. That's all natural blue.

Katrina & Jerry

Katrina & Jerry had their wedding Oct 10 in Branson but wanted a small reception for friends and family that were unable to make it to the ceremony. We were hired on to document their party. It was low-key with the bride and groom shedding their formal wedding attire only one hour or so into the party and then donning their casual wear. We documented thoroughly and caught some great moments. Here you go!

Angelina & Scott

Angelina asked us what she could do for us when we arrived at the Pilgrim Chapel in KC a couple weekends ago to shoot her and Scott's wedding. Nothing, we said, we'll just be around. She was helping decorate the church-- only two hours before the ceremony was to start-- and our job was to capture the chaos and beauty of this wonderfully rich fall day. Between the bride helping decorate and the groom getting his groomsmen dressed, there were very little posed photographs taken all evening. It was a great time for us however, relying upon our photojournalistic schooling that took us from room to room to outside to back inside as we strove to immortalize every detail. Often, it was in tight spaces overflowing with people and sometimes it was in a dark of night. Continue on and let some of these images speak for themselves. . .

(These are bubbles, btw, in the next image. Angelina & Scott's first dance was outside and friends were on the balconies above them blowing bubbles down on them)

Dwayne & Wendy

Oct 10th brought us Dwayne & Wendy and their 20th anniversary party. They had a typical wedding complete with Wendy's white dress and dancing and a cupcake tower. What made this so special, though, was that it was small and mostly put together by the couple's chidren and their families. Wendy's daughter was the one who contacted us and put our involvement in motion. All the decorations and intricate details of their fall celebration were made by the family members themselves so we took great care in capturing every detail from the place settings and decorations to the family members themselves. Here's a sample of what we captured.

Courtney & Josh's engagement

"I don't think I've ever kissed this much in front of another person," Josh said during our engagement session with him and his fiancee, Courtney. They both were a little nervous at first when we met with them at Union Station but were charming, delightful people.

It was supposed to rain, but the storm held off and the sun broke out for some after-Station pics at the JC Nichol's Park at the Plaza. We searched for some fall color which was strangely eluding the Plaza for this time of year, but we managed to find a nice tree or two to get what we wanted. And now onto the photos:
