John & Alex — An Elopement in Kansas City

One could reasonably inquire, "There's a lot of fluff out there in wedding world... what's absolutely necessary for a wedding?" To which I respond – in tandem with this set of pictures – by saying, "Not much... maybe a friend, your dog if you so choose, an officiant and some greenery?" 

John & Alex threw caution to the wind and did away with a lot of the traditional wedding pieces in lieu of heading to Liberty Memorial on a Monday afternoon, making things official, and then setting out for a few portraits with a good friend and their dog in tow. I was lucky enough to not only document said activities but be a legal witness, and the entire afternoon was just delightful.

Trey & Erin — A Chilly, Intimate Morning in Loose Park

Accompanied by just their closest friends and immediate family – as well as some fairly notable fog and the most tremendous sunlight – Trey & Erin celebrated their nuptials with a quick sunrise ceremony, a few bites of cake and a champagne toast, and eventually some lunch at a nearby restaurant.

In an age when Pinterest defines what a wedding should look like and dime-a-dozen wedding blogs decide tradition, these guys turned a blind eye. And do you know what? It was absolutely them, and that – in and of itself – was pretty great.
