Kansas City wedding photographer: Abby & Justin match in more ways than one. ;)

Time sure flies. When Abby & Justin booked me in early 2009, I thought their wedding was soooo farrrr awayyyyyy. We did their engagement session in Columbia, Mo., more than a year ago, so they might look familiar.

Justin is Neil’s buddy from his days of working at Garfield’s and actually honored Neil with asking him to be a groomsman in the wedding. So this marks the first wedding I’ve ever shot in which my hubby was part of the wedding party. Yippeeee! ha

Anyway, when they booked me, I was so excited because never before have I met a couple that was so genuine and thoughtful and fun and darling together. Justin has to be the happiest-go-lucky (is that how you’d say that???) guy EVER…And Abby is a perfect match.

Enough gushing. Let’s get this party started. We began at the Crowne Plaza hotel. My second shooter was the fabulous Courtney Tompson!!! And let me just tell you, this next shot was one of several SHOE SHOTS that Courtney got. She was…OBSESSED. And I can’t blame her.

And another one of many….Justin had around 10 gifts brought to Abby over the course of the morning. Where can one find a groom like that??? Here is one of the gifts…(not to be confused with the wedding band!!)

I think this wedding takes the (cup)cake when it comes to the most emotional one I’ve been to. This was just the beginning of tears. Sigh.

Before the ceremony began, these two moments made me tear up. I’m such a softy when it comes to beautiful people being beautifully emotional.

Ok, this is getting really long…so I’m going to just post photos or I’ll never make tonight’s deadline. haha BUT…let me just say…WRITE YOUR OWN VOWS if your officiant will allow you to. I can’t say enough how amazing it is to feel and hear and see raw emotion during the ceremony. And yes, this photographer might bawl. oops.

And I’d like to just say here that the entire bridal party was a blast. Weddings are so much more fun when fun brides and grooms surround themselves by fun people. Props to Abby & Justin for finding wonderful friends!!!

Ok… break time. This is my second shooter on the right. And my adorable husband on the left. She was trying to teach him a dance. But let me just give you a hint. The move she had taught him was NOTHING like what he did.

And we’ll close with Abby’s dad…I’d been warned about his dancing moves. And thank gosh…because he is a killer on the dancefloor!!!

Abby & Justin…your wedding was worth the long wait. I cannot express how honored I am to have you as friends AND clients. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Can’t wait to make some more wonderful memories between the Hebranks & the Dennises. 😉 xoxoxoxox
