Greg & Cassie Dunkel

Here is a sneak peak at Greg and Cassie's wedding. I had the most wonderful time with this couple. They booked me for their wedding about a year and a half out. So we had some great conversations over the phone and had a total of three times meeting each other before the wedding. This is really good since they lived in Arizona! We had an instant connection from day one so the whole wedding was like hanging out with great friends. It is hard to put into words how great this wedding was so I hope the pics show you what it is like when you have a great bond with your photographer/clients.

Love to you Greg & Cassie!

Demetra & Jamie's Wedding

Demetra and Jamie were wonderful. They were such a super easy couple to work with, and they're so happy!!! We feel totally blessed to have gotten to be part of their special day. They're so laid back, and Demetra is just as sweet as she is pretty :) This is actually the third couple we've photographed in a group of friends. (Remember Cortney and Breanna? They've all known each other for quite a while!!!) OH and here's a fun fact... the first time I (Dawn) met with Demetra to plan her wedding, we had to meet at Panera Bread because it was during the infamous Ice Storm of 2007... no one had any power!!!

Spotlight Vendor...Kim Nave of Signature Weddings

Well as most people know I LOVE wedding coordinators! I think the service they provide is invaluable. I have photographed so many weddings where the mother of the bride (& groom) are working so hard they don't get a chance to be the mom. This is only one of many reasons why I suggest looking into a Wedding coordinator/planner. They offer so many services that I'm sure there will be one that will help you to make your wedding planning go much smoother. I have worked many weddings with Kim as a coordinator including my current Wedding Extravaganza Magazine cover bride Melissa. Also look through my posting of Christy and Gordan's wedding to see a wedding coordinated by Kim. To reach Kim go to or call 417.496.6887

Here is another fun session done AFTER the wedding. I LOVE doing the trash the dress sessions, they are so much fun and everybody is loving it! So far I have had the honor of going to Hawaii and trashing a dress (in the Rainbow Eucalyptus Forest on the road to Hana if you know where that is) and then taking Miss Missouri 2006 into the woods BEFORE her wedding (what a good sport!) So many girls are asking about me going on their honeymoons so they can do this very thing. Trust me I'm always up for the honeymoon thing, but if it is not in the budget we can find great things to do here at home! Tracie and Adam had such a great session and they looked like supermodels! so enjoy looking over their images. We would love to know your thoughts, so comment! ;-)

Thanks Tracie and Adam it was a blast!

Myranda & Mike Porter

Here are some photos from Myranda and Mike's wedding on September 22! This couple was great to photograph. It also probably helps that they were married in one of our favorite churches, Kingsway. They were blessed with a beautiful day that was fun from the start. The day ended with a great reception at the Clarion. We look forward to photographing them in the future when they decide to start a family!

Lady Bug Cuties!

Hi guys it's Kyla, I just wanted to share the cute card I designed today. I'm sure you guys remember Shalla and Sophia from being on here earlier. Well their mom Shallina wanted to design Halloween cards, so we put our heads together and this is the end result. When you're this cute it's hard to look scary!

Our Blue Eyed Finn!

We thought it was time to give Finnley some more publicity. We just can't believe that we have photographed this little man for 8 months, he is going to out grow our baby program too soon! Photographing Finnley is always a joy because he has such a contagious grin. I will just warn you mothers with baby girls, this boy is a flirt!!! Just ask Kyla ;) Here are some photos of the boy with the gorgeous blues!

The Lenz Family

Here is a family we always have so much fun photographing. They love to make funky faces so sometimes it's hard to get them to not smile so much. Last year we photographed them in the great outdoors so we had a lot of fun mixing it up this year downtown. So here is a quick look at their awesome session.
