Wedding: Jeff + Kayla

Jeff and Kayla have been dreaming for months about their destination wedding to the Lake of the Ozarks, and boy did it deliver! They came down from Kansas City for the weekend and rented a gorgeous VRBO lake house in Sunset Beach. The couple was out on a boat all day enjoying the water, and came back just in time to get married at sunset with their immediate family close by. It was the perfect relaxed lake vibes wedding, and I was so glad to capture it all!

Also, adventurous couples who jump into paddle boats in their wedding clothes to get that perfect shot...those are my kind of people. Congrats Jeff & Kayla on your beautiful lake wedding!

Family: Schmittgens Family

Such a pleasure to photograph the Schmittgens family this weekend on their annual trip to the Lake of the Ozarks. Daughter Jessica contacted me about a month ago and wanted to schedule family photos for their extended family, as well as a cake smash for her almost 1 year old son.

This family is a relaxed, tight-knit group and they are such a joy to be around! It was wonderful to update family photos for the Schmittgens and document this family’s newest addition.
