Shelbie & Jospeh's Summer Wedding

Shelbie & Jospeh's Summer Love Story : Kansas City Wedding | Hanna Hill Photography

It's hard to sit here and describe the sweet joy and love that was shared on this day. Shelbie and Jospeh are true best friends and getting to be apart of telling their love story was an honor. Their day was filled with family, personality and excitement for their future. 

We started the day at the Nelson Atkins Museum lawn, the same place we photographed their engagement photos only months before. They shared a sweet first look and morning together capturing their love story and goofiness. I always urge this intimate first look because it's so much easier to be yourself, capture true emotions and take your time easing into the day as a team rather than waiting till the ceremony.

Their day was etched with the resounding love of so many family and friends willing to contribute and love on them. You could just feel how everyone was there to come along side this couple, trusting that they were truly meant for one another. Capturing these relationships all throughout the day is always my focus, more than the event or the details but seeing the way people love on the couple, encourage them and celebrate them. From mothers and sisters to best friends, the way people love you and serve you on your wedding day is always such a beautiful thing to remember.

Along with capturing those personal connections I love seeking out the moments that make their day as special, unique and beautiful as their love story. Like how Shelbie and Joseph after the ceremony broke off to practice their first dance up on the balcony alone, they just wanted those moments to themselves , now as husband and wife, and it was truly a beautiful thing to see. Or how the bride and groom after cutting their cake spent a good chunk of time serving each and every guess. These little windows into their story are gorgeous and will always be apart of what made their day what it was, not just a wedding but a celebration of their relationship.

The Carter Family

The Carter Family: Summer in the Backyard | Hanna Hill Photography | Kansas City, MO

Sometimes you meet a person and they just stick in your mind. I met Shannon (momma of this crazy bunch) while shooting a birth earlier this year. She is an incredible doula, mom and personality. She had mentioned her family of 5 extroverted little ones and her awesome husband who she just couldn't be more thankful for.

I had always wanted to capture the beautiful chaos that comes from a big family. I am one of 6 so the joy and stress and chaos was a very familiar concept. I wanted to document those moments of joy and collision that siblings bring. And I wanted to capture the sweet moments of Summer, being home with everyone having to get your energy out by jumping on a trampoline or running in the yard. It takes me back and I just adore the energy and celebration of life that the Carter family has. they are free of expectations or intense limits. The kids are creative and loud and chaotic together. They were are similar to buzzing electrons around their parents feeding off the energy, attention and love they give off. I just love being able to capture the real emotions, moments and fierceness of everyday life. This is just a small glimpse into what a day is like for the Carter family, its authentic and celebratory. 

Capturing these Summer memories is priceless. This is one of those beautiful seasons of life you will always remember and having photos of the joy and family chaos are irreplaceable.

The Baskett Family

The Baskett Family : Kansas City Sunset Session | Hanna Hill Photography 

Sometimes the sun reflects on the best moments. It just adds drama and color on to the warmest family moments; the laughter of little ones and the sweet affection of parents. It was truly an honor to get to capture this sweet family again. I met them when their little girl had just been born and they wanted to capture their sweet everyday moments at home.

You can see their previous sessions here and here. Now little Isabella is obviously a grown up cute little bundle of laughter and serious stares. its so sweet being able to capture her little personality as it grows. William of course is growing in his little personality as well and just loves to explore and be the center of attention. Excited to watch this family grow and capture their joy.

Bert & Lauren's Spring Wedding

Bert & Lauren's North Kansas City Spring Wedding | Hanna Hill Photography

There is always something so incredible and honoring in capturing someones wedding day. Documenting the moments when a couple sees their partner as a husband or a wife and vows to be real and together for the rest of their lives. It romantic yes but also scary and exciting. Being a photographer gives me so much joy and responsibility to tell the story of their day with detail, care and authenticity.

For Bert and Lauren it was simply incredible to capture their true connection with each other. They met me that morning at a park for their couples portraits. There was not a single shot I could take that kept them from smiling. There was only true happiness when they were together thinking about the fact that they were actually marrying each other! Those are the kinds of couples and moments I love capturing. They were so in love and so excited for their big adventure together to begin!
