Logan and Drew said their “I do’s” on a windy and beautiful day at the Bell of Camden Point. The day was filled with so much fun and joy! The Bell of Camden Point provided the perfect mix of rustic and elegant styles to make for a picture perfect day.
Logan said, “Location was major for my wedding venue. It was so close to the airport, which was great for our family. Also, the chandeliers at the wedding venue is what made me fall in love with it. I truly enjoyed working with Chas at the wedding venue as well.”
The bridesmaids wore beautiful shades of green that complemented the eucalyptus in the florals wonderfully. The groomsmen looked very sharp in black tuxes with bow ties! The bride and groom changed into Dunks for the reception, which was a unique personal touch to their outfits.
Logan told me, “I think that looking back my favorite part of my wedding day is having my friends and family and walking around to each of their tables and talking with them. I wanted to be very present on my wedding day and be intentional with my time and see everyone who traveled to watch me marry my best friend.”
After the ceremony, everyone gathered for a smorgasbord of yummy food, a photo booth and dancing! Logan’s advice to anyone planning their wedding is to choose what you want and take time to soak in the day. It goes by too fast.
I had so much fun capturing this day! I’m so thankful I had the opportunity to be a part of Logan and Drew’s forever.
Victoria and Nick tied the knot this past Fall on a beautiful day and The Venue at Willow Creek. Their day was full of love, laughter, and gorgeous Fall colors. The Venue at Willow Creek offered a beautiful space for the wedding party to get ready. Victoria said, “Our venue was so accommodating and organized. Not only did we love Jaimee, our coordinator, but the day was a beautiful fall day and the venue had an immense amount of natural beauty inside and outside.”
The wedding party wore a mix of blues, gray, and maroon, which photographed wonderfully with the full Fall foliage. Their wedding party was so fun and carefree! The groomsmen all wore crazy socks with their suits, which was a nice touch to their individual personalities. After getting their gallery Victoria mentioned, “I LOVE the pictures of my bridal crew! I think Nick feels the same, in regards to his groomsmen. Those pictures are SO fun and natural.”
The ceremony was outside under a beautiful oak tree. It was the end of October, so the Fall foliage had just reached peak color and the weather was perfect! The reception had yard games set up outside to keep the guests busy, along with a fun signature cocktail.
“The Tripod” signature cocktail was created after Nick and Victoria’s dog, Belle. Victoria said, “Our favorite detail of the day was having our figurine of our dog, Belle, right by the cake. We had Belle present for our engagement photos, but because she is a wild and happy 13 year-old tripod, we decided to not involve her physically in the wedding.”
The reception was full of laughter and excitement as the pair made their debut as a married couple! Between the speeches, yard games, cocktails, cake cutting, and hitting the dance floor, this was one party to remember. I feel so blessed to have been able to capture this special day and am so happy for Nick and Victoria as they start their forever together.
Kansas City has so many unique wedding venues, one of them being Union Horse Distillery. This location is perfect for small, intimate weddings! Antoinette and Seth didn’t want a huge wedding. They wanted to make sure their day was intentional and personal to them and this non-traditional venue granted their wishes.
Between the rehearsal, watching Antoinette put on her Nike dunks, and capturing the couple order their favorite drinks at the bar, this day was a perfect representation of them. These two were so fun and carefree throughout the day and it was reflected in the moments I captured. The venue allowed us to visit the cellar and take some really unique photographs in front of the barrels. They also provided a small barrel that displayed the Union Horse Distillery logo for the couple to use as a guest book!
The couple didn’t have a traditional wedding party, which made the ceremony feel very intimate. But their family and friends all came out to help celebrate them! The flower girls all wore Nikes that matched Antoinette’s, which was so cute with their dresses. After cocktail hour, everyone gathered for dinner and dancing! The couple decided on flavored popcorn as party favors, which doubled as a fun late night snack after some time spent on the dance floor. Thank you Antionette and Seth for allowing me to capture this unique and fun day!
One of my favorite things about being a photographer is that I have been given the opportunity to capture the special moments in the lives of people who mean so much to me. This incredible day at Feasts of Fancy was close to my heart. I’ve known Tori since we were in Kindergarten and I was so excited when Kellan popped the question! Her and Kellan’s wedding story isn’t one of tradition, yet it is so incredibly special.
This celebration at Feasts of Fancy took place months after Tori and Kellan’s intimate wedding ceremony. Tori’s mom, Anne, had breast cancer and it was extremely important to Tori for her mom to be at her wedding. So, with the help of their families, Tori and Kellan put their wedding together in 2 short weeks so they could celebrate with Anne. The day was beautiful and so incredibly special.
The day of their large wedding celebration started out with the bridal parties getting ready at their respective houses. After their first look, everyone loaded up on the party bus and headed out for pictures! The beautiful spring day complemented the different shades of blue the wedding party wore and photographed wonderfully. After wedding party pictures, we went to cocktail hour and the party began! I had such a great time capturing all the fun, sweet, and sentimental moments from this special day. Between their grand entrance, the speeches, and dancing the night away this was a day many will remember.
Thank you for allowing me to be a part of this special day, in more ways than one. I will forever wish you two nothing but the best!
Blake and Gina tied the knot at The Bottle House on a gorgeous fall day surrounded by their loved ones! The Bottle house offered great spaces for the wedding party to relax, get ready, and take pictures before the wedding. The ceremony and reception space was very warm and welcoming with a ceiling lined with beautiful bulb lights.
Gina’s dress was stunning and complimented her bridesmaid’s and flower girl’s dresses perfectly. Blake is a firefighter and the couple included special sentiments to his profession throughout the day. From her garter to their cake topper and all the tiny details in between, it really specialized their big day. One of my favorite moments of the day was Gina and Blake’s first look with Gina’s daughter – it was so incredibly sweet!
The couple shared handwritten vows and then hit the town with their wedding party in a limo to start celebrating. This group was so much fun! When we got back to The Bottle House, the real party began with speeches and dinner and ended on the dance floor! Things really got crazy when the glow stick came out. This group danced the night away! I had so much fun capturing these memories – thank you Blake and Gina!

Aimee and Dakota had an intimate backyard wedding at their family’s farm where they began dating. The day was filled with love and memories of their relationship!
It was a bright Spring day when they got married under a beautiful oak tree surrounded by all their loved ones. The bridesmaids wore dark green satin dresses that complemented their burnt orange, pink, and white bouquets wonderfully. The groomsmen wore tan vests with green ties to compliment the bridesmaid’s dresses. The wedding party was a fun group!
Some of the couple’s favorite parts of the day were their first look and the donut wall at the reception! Their first look was so sweet. It is a great way to have a special moment as a couple before walking down the isle! The donut wall was a unique and tasty touch to their celebration.
Aimee’s advice for anyone who is getting married soon is to take a minute to take it all in. She was given the same advice before her ceremony and she said it helped her be very present and able to have a clear memory of the most important day!
Thank you Aimee and Dakota for allowing me to be apart of your big day! I will always be a fan of an intimate backyard wedding!
Madisen and Jordan got married at The Bowery this past year, and it was such a great day! They celebrated with their closest friends and family all night long. The girls wore the prettiest light blue dresses that matched perfectly with her white and green color palette. Madisen’s dress was from True Society and wow, it she was STUNNING. The guys wore light gray suits, while Jordan wore a navy one. Their color palette photographed so well!
They actually decided to choose a new last name for them both to change to after their wedding. (How cool is that!?) They picked “Flourish” to represent their growth as a couple, and it fit them so well. It was a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony at the Bowery. One of my favorite parts of the wedding day was during the reception! All the women in Madisen’s life circled around her on the dance floor to sing and dance to Mamma Mia/Abba and it was SO FUN!
It was really one of the best days! Thank you Madisen and Jordan for letting me be a part of it!

Emma and Albert had a beautiful Carriage Club Wedding Day with their closet friends and family! Emma really made her day unique to her and I couldn’t stop obsessing over her details! The pearl shawl she added to her dress was stunning! And her color palette that was used throughout the entire day was beautiful!
I spoke with Emma shortly after their wedding and asked her what she loved about her venue! She said that The Carriage Club has so much character alone, so wasn’t hard to make the space beautiful! She also said that their wedding day truly did feel like a dream to them and that things went better than they expected! They had super fun reception and even spared a few moments after the sun went down to get some more portraits done! Their Carriage Club wedding day was all they could have hoped for.
And they even wrote me the nicest review:
“Natalie encapsulated everything I wanted in a photographer. Her photography style is stunning, she helped us throughout the planning process, and was always happy to answer questions. Natalie was great at directing people. She knows beautiful poses and works with her surroundings to make sure each picture is beautiful. I am so grateful for her expertise!”
So blessed to have such amazing people to work with every weekend! This one was sure one for the books!
Allison and Todd had an intimate courthouse wedding with their closest friends and family. They had their wedding day at Johnson County Courthouse before celebrating later that night. They also had their beautiful daughter with them to celebrate, which was so sweet!! She was wearing a little white dress to match her Mama 🙂
Allison’s bridal party wore blush pink dresses and held small bouquets! Todd’s men wore darker suits than his light gray, which made for such a cool contrast look! We grabbed family photos right outside the Johnson County Courthouse before heading to Lake Olathe for some portraits of the two of them.
I loved this day and the intimacy of it! Courthouse wedding days should never go over looked because of how special and intimate they are. Thank you Allison & Todd for having me along on this amazing day! You are surrounded by some of the best family & friends and I felt lucky to be apart of it all!
Bailey and Chris had a beautiful spring Wedding at Powell Gardens! Their wedding day was emotional and FULL of love. They had their closest friends and family at their side, ready to celebrate. You could tell that their families had been waiting for this day for them.
My favorite details of the day were all of the color that they had! Colorful florals and mixmatched bridesmaids are going to be a huge trend for the rest of 2022 and 2023 weddings.
Powell Gardens is has a modern church with insane windows and tall ceilings that feel never ending. It’s truly a magical place to just stand and soak in all the thoughtful design put into the venue.
Thank you so much Bailey and Chris for letting me celebrate this gorgeous day with you!
