I don’t even know where to begin with this one. Rachel has been a big fan of Hello Happiness Card Co for years. And I met her sister, Sarah, a long while ago at a workshop we held in Kansas City. Let’s put it this way. When Rachel reached out about having Jenny + I travel all the way to Estes Park to document her + Joe’s wedding, we had to say yes. We had to make it work. The excitement was too great to not go.
Having been back for a few weeks, I think all the joy has been processed. There were so many beautiful moments we got to be a part of. All of the surprises throughout the day. The laughter. The tears. Joe even figured out how to get Rachel’s adorable corgi up for the wedding as a surprise…and they live in Aspen.
I told Rachel + Sarah I dream my kids will be as close as they are when they’re older. It’s a beautiful thing to watch their interactions + belly laughs.
Enough rambling. Here’s the pictures…
Family style at it’s finest. Love all the coordinating colors to match the adorable smiles.
Fall in Kansas City means pumpkin farms. And pumpkin farms are a great place for some family photos.
Some fun family images from a fall evening at Loose Park. Kansas City sure does do fall right with the colors.
Session 2 of 2 in the Oakland Zoo parking lot & ride area. Love the California light. It’s definitely way different than Kansas City light. lol. Loved getting to catch up with the Zapien family & meet their sweet little girl. We shot their wedding 5 years ago in Oakland. It was good to be back & see ’em.
Session 1 of 2 I did in the Oakland Zoo parking lot. This momma is raising some sweet boys, that’s for sure! Loved their sense of humor, smiles & positive attitudes.
Getting to photograph people you met in high school is quite the honor. Stephanie, you’re building a wonderful family + I’m honored to be able to document your life.
On what felt like the hottest day of the year, Brian + Jen kicked up the heat even more as we celebrated the start of their lives together as a married couple. Aren’t they the cutest? Like, seriously, the cutest…
Family 2 of 2 today. I’ve been documenting their journey since their wedding all the way back in 2011.
PS. Amy is the best dang water ski teacher ever. She’s gotten my whole family up every time.
Family is everything. Love the way the Saou’s love each other.
