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 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.

Big News & Summer Schedule | Hannahill Photography

Hannahill Photography has crazy, sad and wonderful news. Chris and I are moving back to the South East. We will be moving ourselves over to Durham, North Carolina at the end of the summer, so Chris can start his Masters degree at Duke University. This is crazy and wonderful and so sad to leave my amazing clients, families, couples and community here in Kansas City. A lot is unknown about Hannahill Photography during this transition but I'll be photographing as much as humanly possible.

Kansas City has been such a wonderful place for our first years of marriage and we will miss our people here so dearly.  For those of you with Weddings in the Fall on my calendar don't worry for a second, flights are already booked for me to come back in the Fall and with that will be days open for Fall family sessions as well. These days will be limited but available to all my awesome previous clients and those who have been waiting for the Fall to arrive to snag a Hannahill Photography session. 

While it really saddens me to leave KC we are actually super excited about North Carolina and all the possibilities there. If you know anyone over that way feel free to send them my email cause I'll be on the hunt for people to grab a cup of coffee with. 

If you are wanting;

Frequently asked Questions:

 

What is the difference between Mini Sessions & Morning/Evening Sessions? 

There are a few key differences between these two sessions.

Morning/Evening Sessions are:

  • Our full 1 hour sessions
  • These can be newborn, in home, outdoor, documentary style or just in a location you love and want a session at. 
  • These are for immediate family only but if you'd like the include the extended family there is only a $25 charge per pair added. 
  • They include 50+ fully edited images sent to you in an online gallery for you to download, share and make prints with
  • Standard Family Sessions are $250 but feel free to message me HERE to get a copy of our Investment guide with all of the different types of sessions, whats included and their cost. 

Mini Sessions are: 

  • 30 minutes long from "hello" to "all finished" and you need to be at least 5 minutes early to insure you get all of your allotted time because these sessions are booked back to back.
  • They are held at a predetermined location depending on the time and day you choose. 
  • They include 20 fully edited images sent to you in an online gallery for you to download, share and make prints with. 
  • They cost $150 and the full payment is due to reserve your slot.

What happens if the weather doesn't cooperate?

Overcast, even drizzly weather can make for good photographs...Umbrellas are fun! I understand that it’s not feasible for all situations.  If the weather is looking “questionable,” I will check in with you and we will determine if our session will take place or should be rescheduled.  Due to a very limited booking schedule, I do my absolute best to hold sessions on your reserved day and time.  If we have to cancel due to POURING rain, most likely your session will be moved to the following day, SUNDAY same place and time. 

Do you use "Props" or "Pinterest" shot lists?

My style is not like everyone else’s, my hope is always to give you real life photos. Our sessions are very organic and laid back. If you like my photographs, what you're seeing is a reflection of this...I don't want the end result to feel contrived. I really strive to connect with each family, and photograph in a way that feels right with each family. 

But one prop I always suggest is bringing a blanket! I will in every session ask you guys to sit, either on the grass or ground so it's always helpful to have a blanket for everyone to cuddle and land on. 

When will my images be ready?

All sessions take 1-3 weeks to process after the date of your session.
