Mathew & Amanda loved each other dearly, and that was the most important thing about their wedding day. We started the day together at the church (the ladies had already gotten their hair done) to get them both ready for their ceremony. The church made a beautiful backdrop for their sweet and special ceremony. After the ceremony we headed to the stunning Kansas University campus for portraits; a few with the wedding party and then we explored new places together. We even happened upon a cool and quite spot (on a very hot day) that is one of my all time favorites!
After portraits we headed to The Oread Hotel on the edge of campus for dinner, drinks, and a special sunset moment on the roof. Wedding days are crazy, and when I can take my couple away from all of it for a few minutes of quiet together I do!! Then back down to the party; and boy what a party it was! These two are such wonderful people and it was such a joy and honor to be a part of their day!
I don’t normally share reviews on the blog, but Mathew & Amanda’s is one of my all time favorites:
Meghan is phenomenal, and we could not be happier with our experience working with her. To be entirely honest, when my husband and I got started with wedding planning we weren’t too sure about the whole photography piece – usually, neither one of us really enjoys taking photos. From the minute we met Meghan for coffee to talk about what was important to us for our wedding day, it was clear that she is absolutely committed to helping her couples experience a special day. She’s completely professional and an all-around excellent person to be around. She helped us think through our timeline and details, taking the time to really get to know us and what mattered to us. We had a great time taking our engagement photos at Shawnee Mission Park, and loved how they turned out. Meghan is exactly the kind of person you want to spend a big piece of your wedding day with. She’s kind, fun, totally unflappable, and you can totally trust her to make sure you get amazing pictures for your day. She managed the dynamics of our big families with lots of people brilliantly, and then our time taking photos with our wedding party and then with just us ended up being one of the best parts of our day. As we’re looking through our photos, we just can’t believe how good they are – Meghan created an atmosphere where we have photos that capture us and the fun we’re having together, the special details and memories that we’ll remember forever, and some absolutely stunning shots where she arranged us and the light and backdrops in ways that turned out incredibly well. We are so glad we decided to partner with her and can’t recommend her highly enough. – Amanda (the bride)
Meghan was awesome and our photos are great. I think the best compliment I can give Meghan is that she made the process easy. Neither my wife nor I had many opinions on what exactly we wanted for photos. Meghan really got to know us and helped us figure out what we liked in photos. We had a really fun engagement session that helped us prepare for the wedding day. On the actual day of the wedding, Meghan was amazing! She made it feel fun and special, and she did a great job managing family and friends. Neither my wife nor I are very into taking photos, but we both had a great time during our photo shoots. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is getting married. – Mathew (the groom)
