Trey & Andrea — atop the Tetons

This was one of the best weddings I’ve ever been a part of.

It was in the middle of Jackson Hole, Wyoming; both Trey and Andrea got ready for the day at the foot of the ski slopes in Teton Village. Their ceremony took place at Rendezvous Lodge… 10,000 ft. in the sky, overlooking miles and miles of mountains and valleys. They ended the night with sparklers AND a gondola ride back down the mountain, and it was truly a dance party for the ages. There’s proof of all those things below.

And while all of those particulars are great (and made my job quite easy, admittedly), none of them were significant in making this wedding and the process leading up to such what it was to me. And that’s because Trey and Andrea, and their families, and those in their wedding party, are the best. And I mean the dang best. It was a heck of a fun day. And, my wife Lizzie was able to travel along on this one and help out you’ll see a handful of Blancbooth portraits down toward the bottom here that she commandeered.

Trey, Andrea: thanks a million. For loving Lawrence; for sharing an affinity for great bakeries and coffee joints; for being the kindest and most hospitable; for trusting. You’re the best.

Wes & Jaclyn — Portraits

This past winter in Kansas City was brutal. Possibly the brutal-est, actually… so spring was a more-than-welcome sight for us. And, as luck had it, the early stages of such coincided just perfectly with Wes and Jaclyn’s portrait plans. Flower buds popped, the sun shone, and the temperatures rose to an ideal point, all for the first time in what seemed like years. It was one of those evenings that had us lifting all the praise hands and smiling from ear to ear.

Wes and Jaclyn: thanks for your trust here; thanks for being downright great to be around; and thanks for pulling those strings with mother nature. :)

(Wes and Jaclyn will be wedded this coming autumn at Parkville’s Hawthorne House. We’re pumped all the way around for that.)

2018 — vol. 2

If you’re seeing this, we owe you thanks – for your trust, for your partnership, for simply having viewed this post… or for all of those things and likely much more.

Another year for the books; another for which we’re so grateful.

Here’s to the good that found you in 2018. Here’s to 2019 and all of its hopes, cares and joys.

Zach & Sara — At Their Home

Man alive… Zach & Sara.

These two wonderful humans managed to find that unique and rare balance somewhere between a day chock-full of personal, thoughtful details and a “we don’t care too much, we just want to get married” mentality. They put up a tent, set up some chairs in an adjacent field, prepared for the day in their home, and shared a pre-ceremony prayer at Zach’s folks’ place, nearby. Then, Heather from Heart & Soul Floral added some just-right floral (probably some of the most perfectly-fitting floral I’ve seen), and Zach & Sara’s vision came to life in a true team effort smack-dab in the middle of a timely break between storms.

It was just the best, and hopefully these photographs – paired with a tune… be sure to push play – portray their day well.

Bennet & Hilary — An Autumn Classic

Planning for an autumn wedding in the midwest: trying a year ahead of time to pinpoint the perfect two- or three-week stretch so as to take advantage of perfect weather and seasonal colors, all while evading potential 90-degree temperatures on one end and snow on the other. Quite a conundrum, it can be.

But Bennet and Hilary nailed it. Colors were at their peak and while rain showers rolled in that evening, daytime weather was ideal. Oh, and they chose to wrap the evening with a waffle bar, sooo…
