Talk about a typical Nebraska day. It rained, it was cold, it got hot, it got humid, it got hotter. Kristine and Dan experienced all the weathers during their June wedding. But, that didn’t get them down. They packed a cute umbrella and they never stopped smiling. They were married at the BEAUTIFUL St. Charles in Gretna/SW Omaha and celebrated their reception at the DELICIOUS Anthony’s Steakhouse. I don’t want to play favorites, but I love me some Anthony’s. 🙂

I met the adorable Mary and Jeremiah a couple years ago at their friends’ wedding. (She’s the MOH snuggling Mary in the girl’s photo below. Which by the way, happens to be one of the cutest photos you’ll ever see.) You guys know that’s my favorite way to meet new couples, right… Cruising wedding parties for the recently engaged? Tell your friends. Photographer, nice lady, kind of a creeper.
Mary and Jeremiah were married on the river front in Yankton, South Dakota. I had never been to Yankton before and besides slot machines in convenience stores, the river front is definitely one of the coolest things about that town. It is such a beautiful area. Despite it being in the 50s and windy on their June 1st wedding date, they never stopped smiling and had a beautiful day surrounded by friends and family.
I have bad luck at 1316 weddings (bad weather, the flu, etc. ) and we almost made it without incident at Matt and Mary’s wedding. Less than an hour before their outdoor ceremony, it rained. But only for a minute. Then it was beautiful. I think my curse finally wore off. I shot my first actual ceremony on that patio and it was so beautiful.
Kristina and Ken’s engagement photos were my first shoot in the new studio last summer. They were a lot of fun, really cute, super in love. So in love in fact, that they didn’t even bother waiting until their wedding to get married – they had a surprise wedding last December. After celebrating with them last month and seeing first hand how crazy they are about each other and how far back their friendship spanned, it really wasn’t a surprise at all. When you’re absolutely sure about your future, what’s the sense in waiting for it to begin?
Super thank you to Sam Clark Photography for second shooting this one with me. He did a fantastic job and didn’t freak out when I sent him to a shooting range with a bunch of strangers.
Melissa and Dan were married in a small, intimate ceremony with their closest friends and family. Apparently, beautiful Melissa is a top-notch planner. Her maid of honor referred to her as “Wedding MacGyver.” And HELLO – that veil. She converted me into a veil fan.
Mary and Corbin came back from Michigan to celebrate their wedding Omaha style. I’m pretty sure they brought every hot person in Michigan with them. There was an unusual number of very good looking outsdoorsy type people at this wedding. Aside from being smokin hot, Mary and Corbin also incredibly fun and two of the nicest people I’ve ever worked with. Oh, and they have great taste in music. First dance to Michael Jackson’s “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You?” Yes, that’s a very good decision.
Big props to Jennie Davis Photography for shooting this one with me! She’s awesome, great, the best, etc, etc. 🙂
Does everyone want to see something pretty and fun to perk them up on this pseudo Monday morning? Natasha and Tony did something a little different for their wedding. They threw a small, intimate affair downtown at Blue and just asked me to come for a few hours and shoot some fun portraits. I always love doing something like this is my schedule allows. I get to show up in the afternoon, shoot a ton of fun stuff, and be back at home in my pajamas by dinner time. 🙂
They were so adorable, so nice, so in love. I almost stayed (uninvited) for the rest of the day. Aaaaaand I’m slowing working my way towards being their friend whether they want me or not. Maybe I should add “weirdo new best friend” to the list of items included in my wedding package.
Bekah and Carson celebrated their wedding recently at Carson’s home-away-from-home: Offutt. I think that maybe 5% of the guests at this wedding were actually from Omaha, the rest were from all over America. They were nice like Nebraska folks, though. For instance, they pushed my car when it died between the ceremony and reception. Yes, that happened. They were sure to take a photo:

I’m so happy to have met Bekah and Carson and all their friends and family. I even ran into someone there who I was related to but had never met before. They’ve surrounded themselves with such wonderful people. Their friends will be with them no matter where they call home.
You guys! Molly and Nick got married! And it was all so gooooorgeous. Their wedding day was one of those surprise freezing cold weekends in late April. They rolled with it and made a few adjustments, still celebrating with one of the sweetest and most meaningful weddings I’ve ever been to.
