On a truly beautiful day in May, Kim and Nate got married in downtown Wichita. All of the festivities were held at the Ambassador Hotel, and festive the day indeed was. It’s always a blessing as a photographer to work with families, wedding parties, and couples who are energetic and clearly love life. This group are those people. So enjoyable, so open, and so very beautiful.
Here is the visual story of Kim and Nate’s wedding day. All photos marked with a two were shot by the talent Taylor Hoppock. Enjoy.
I could get really gushy mushy in this post, but I’ll spare you. Krysta is one of my very closest friends. Getting the chance to be a part and a witness to her and Daniel’s wedding day was a privilege and a joy.
I love you two more than words can say.

Remember back in the fall when I accidentally became a wedding photographer for a day? If it wasn’t for that little push, I don’t know if I ever would have mustered up enough courage to think about pursuing photography in a way more than just a hobby.
A spark has been kindled, and I just can’t get enough. Since September I have second shot 4 weddings with 3 more lined up and my very first wedding as the lead photographer… all of this in the next 2 months.
I’ll be traveling the next few weeks so I thought I’d share a few of those weddings while I’m away.
I second shot Abby and Eric’s wedding the beginning of March with Mary of Daylight Photography. It was a chilly and slightly overcast day but lovely nonetheless. Enjoy!
Congratulations Abby and Eric!
Next week is Thanksgiving. This blows my mind… I swear,
yesterday was the first day of October.
For any of you looking for a wonderful recipe, next week
you’re in for a treat! I also have an
incredible website to share with you just in time for all of you hoping to make
the best Thanksgiving turkey of your life. Big words, I know. You won’t be
Today I have a different kind of treat.
Let’s flashback to yesterday (i.e. the beginning of October)
when at SyncStudio, the Cardio Circuit group was chatting about everything
ridiculous under the sun. Naked yoga and pole dancing workout classes being
among the topics…. It was hilarious.
During the silliness, one of the fellow Syncers, Sonya,
mentioned she was getting married! In two days!
That’s when I began my litany of wedding questions: Where?
When? Who? Dress? Photographer?
At this time Sonya said something along the lines of,
“That’s a good question… I may not have one.” She explained that the
photographer she hired had a family emergency and may not be available, and
that Sonya might have to resort to having iPhone pictures.
Now, I’m relatively confident in my ability to take a nice
picture of food, but my experience with shooting people is limited. I told Sonya, people aren’t really “my thang”,
but I’d be more than happy to give it a go if her photographer is unavailable.
Their photographer could only commit to shooting the ceremony, so she asked me
if I could take some pictures of them before, when they first see each other.
No pressure, right?
I am beyond happy that she asked me! It was such fun, and it
didn’t hurt that the couple is GORGEOUS. They made my first experience in the
world of weddings incredible.
I introduce to you David and Sonya Brown!
