Photography: Blog https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog 120 80 Sarah & Michelle's Kansas City Wedding Photos https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/7/sarah-michelles-kansas-city-wedding-photos It's not every day you get to do wedding photography for two dear friends. I had the best time hanging out with Sarah and Michelle and their families on their wedding day. We weren't able to find the perfect time in their wedding day schedule to leave the hotel and go do portraits, so we decided to schedule a follow-up session in the fall so that we could grab some beautiful portraits of the two of them in gorgeous nature, which I thought would compliment their beautiful African wedding dresses. These two emanate so much love it's just contagious. I hope you love looking at these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. #jumpthebroom

Kathy & Gary's Wedding Sneak Peeks https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/7/kathy-garys-wedding-sneak-peeks I loved doing photos for Gary and Kathy as they celebrated their marriage and the combining of two wonderful families. Each had lost their first spouses to disease and were lucky to have match-maker friends bring them together. This is a beautiful story of finding that second love of your life. The two were married under the trellises at Wines by Jennifer in the super quaint Parkville, MO. It's a town worth visiting!

Jeni & Travis's Lawrence KS Wedding Photos at Liberty Hall https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/6/jeni-traviss-lawrence-ks-wedding-photos-at-liberty-hall Jeni and Travis' dared to host a Friday the 13th wedding at Liberty Hall and it was AWESOME. I love that they provided tabletop games to share their nerd love with guests after changing into their Chaotic Neutral t-shirts for the reception. While this is not the first wedding, I've been asking to take a photo of the couple with their D&D crew--this WAS the first wedding where they asked me to take photos with BOTH of their D&D crew. So fun! :) As always, I had a blast taking photos in the beautiful and iconic Liberty Hall historic theater. Liberty Hall is by far one of my favorite venues to shoot in. Enjoy the pics!

So this one was especially special for me to document. This was no ordinary wedding, this was My Big Fat Foxy Wedding, a burlesque show and a wedding for the always dapper and beautiful, Mr. and Mrs. Reed. Enjoy the sneak peeks at the gorgeous, historic and iconic Liberty Hall Theater in Downtown Lawrence.

Chelsey & Brittany's Wedding Photos at Old Stone House https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/6/chelsey-brittanys-wedding-photos-at-old-stone-house Chelsey and Brittany's fairytale themed wedding was absolutely perfect. The two were married at a family member's home, the Old Stone House in Tecumseh, Kansas. My favorite part was photographing La Marcha / The Grand March when the couple and guests are brought into a dancing ritual, ending on the dancefloor where the couple are surrounded by friends celebrating their new marriage! It's a beautiful thing to witness and photograph! Congratulations to these two beautiful brides! #lovewins

Christina & Mike {Lawrence KS Wedding Photos + Victorian Veranda} https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/5/christina-mike-lawrence-ks-wedding-photos-victorian-veranda I just love Spring weddings and doing photos out at the always beautiful Victorian Veranda and Country Inn in North Lawrence. Christina and Mike were married on a beautiful Spring day. These hosted a morning ceremony in the venue's upstairs part of the barn, then followed by an afternoon luncheon and jam session for the groom and his friends to play Americana and folk music together. The groom is a maker of mandolins, note the beautiful details in one of the mandolins he made for a wedding guest. This was one heck of a great party! <3

Ryan & Danny {Wedding Photos + Lawrence, KS + Cider Gallery} https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/5/ryan-danny-wedding-photos-lawrence-ks-cider-gallery I always enjoy working with clients like Ryan and Danny. These two opted to go without a wedding party, so our portrait time got to be only focused on the two of them. I love opportunities like this because we take the couple in my vehicle and shoot at random spots around the area. What we end up with, is a truly unique set of portraits against backdrops I have never and may never use again. Some of these and I can't even remember which alley they were in! The reception candids were perfect against the uber cool backdrop of The Cider Gallery, an art gallery in a warehouse in East Lawrence. <3

Shannon & Tai Amri's Wedding Photobooth & Sneak Peek Wedding Photos https://www.ohsnaphoto.com/blog/2018/5/shannon-tai-amris-wedding-photobooth-sneak-peek-wedding-photos Shannon and Tai Amri's wedding day was perfection. Their vows were so beautiful (and full of comments about how they do not own each other), I had to ask them for a copy! Clouds were a godsend on this hilltop by the Clinton Lake owned by dear friends of theirs. The Arch and macrame were made by friends  and highlighted the natural beautiful of Kansas in the Springtime. Enjoy these Sneak Peeks & Photobooth pics from their beautiful and rainy wedding day.
