Hey Guys,

Every time I do a new wedding I am humbled by how lucky I am to do what I do.  When Jake & Joanie emailed me way back and told me they were going to Cancun for their wedding I had just gotten back from a wedding in Cancun and I was all about going back!  I love destination weddings and couples like Jake and Joanie are really the reason why I love covering weddings like this.  I had so much fun and honestly feel like I have made a ton of great new friends.  I can’t wait to see these guys grow together!

I’m so excited to share a sneak peek here.

Hey Guys

I’m really excited to share these photos.  My friends Megan and Cody tied the knot Saturday.  Megan was a beautiful bride and I was so excited to take photos when Cody proposed last year.  It’s always wonderful to see great people have an amazing wedding both of them have this charm about them that really made covering this wedding special to me.   I have a lot of things to take care of today so I’m gonna share the photos and then update the post tomorrow with some more content.

Cheers!

~Shawn

Hey Guys,

Ruthanne & Mark just tied the knot and celebrated at the Aspen Room in Lee’s Summit afterwards.  It seems weird that I was so excited to cover a wedding during heavy snow but it was SO much fun!  I had a blast and I can’t wait to share the sneak peek.  We got a little bit of a cold engagement session as well but I am so glad we got to take some amazing photos in the snow!  Here’s the eye-candy!
