Derek & Tracy

We had the pleasure of photographing Tracy's bridal shoot a couple months ago and then we filmed their engagement story to show at their reception. After attending their rehearsal & rehearsal dinner at Derek's parents's house, they seemed like old friends by the time we filmed and photographed their wedding. This is what we love at Artistic Imagery. We love truly getting to know a couple, we love hearing their love story and we love being a small part of documenting their special day. Here's a selection of photographs from their beautiful wedding day-- from their ceremony to Mahaffie Park to their reception at the lovely Bacchanalia.

Changnon Reception

Laura & Nick were wed in the Caribbean this past spring but decided they wanted a reception here in KC. Laura called us a couple months ago and set things in motion. When Barb arrived, Laura said that she wanted coverage of the reception, sure, but what she was really missing were some "getting ready" photos & some good "hang on the wall" photographs of her & her plus Nick. We took on the challenge and made some really fabulous images in the short time we were there.

Impromptu Trip

It's always sad when a couple cancels a wedding. It's one of the worst things we hear when a bride emails or calls to say that a wedding has been called off. This doesn't happen incredibly often but every once in a great while, it does. Fourth of July weekend held such a wedding for us. And then since we suddenly had a weekend in the middle of Wedding Season open (incredible!) we decided to take a little weekend getaway trip with us and two friends of ours (one of whom happens to be second shooter for us). What follows is a little glimpse into our journey across Missouri. It's astounding how beautiful and green Missouri is! We traveled along the Katy Trail (for those who are familiar with it) and in the beginning, we meant to camp. However, the daytime highs of 90+ degrees changed our plans to a quaint little B&B. All in all, it was a fabulous little vacation so we thought to post some pictures. Enjoy!

Matt & Nicole's Downtown Wedding

Matt & Nicole were wed at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in down town KC (the beautiful gold-topped church!). Their reception was in the historic Muehlebach Tower in the Convention district just blocks away from their church. Let's begin by saying what a great day this was! It began bright and early at Beauty Brands on the Plaza and moved to the church from there. Between the ceremony & reception, we hit up the Plaza, The Granfalloon for a couple drinks, the rooftop of the Western Auto building & finally the Quaff back on Union Hill. Whew! From there, we hoped, skipped, and jumped over to the Marriott for the beautiful, antique reception hall. Nicole had the brightest smile all day-- even in the 100+ degree weather on the rooftop! It was a wonderful chance to have lots of fun with the group shots and also the inside of the Muehlebach lent itself to some fabulous black and white shots that we couldn't go without. Barb and Shannon loved every minute of this hot and fun filled Saturday in June.

We photographed some really fantastic moments of Matt & Nicole's parents. We absolutely adore capturing thse precious images of family members enjoying themselves-- especially the parents at their children't fairy-tale wedding.. .

Have we mentioned how much we adore capturing those fun and intimate candids at a couple's wedding?
