Angie and Trevor are incredible folks!  They have been a thrill to work with and have been so much fun along the way.  I really hope they have kids soon so that I can keep taking pictures of them (aka – hanging out, goofing off and laughing robustly)!  Angie and Trevor had their ceremony and reception at Big Cedar, and it was the perfect spot for their beautiful wedding!  I could go on and on, but I’ll just let the images do the talking!

Married | Marjorie + Matt

Marjorie and Matt were married a few weeks ago at the Savoy Ballroom on historic Commercial St. in Springfield, MO.  I had the privilage of being their engagement and wedding photographer.  I really enjoyed working with Marjorie and Matt for many reasons, but one of my favorite aspects about them is that they are both down-to-earth sweet people.  Their wedding was a genuine celebration and I could feel the joy from both sides of the family.  Thanks guys for letting me be a part of your grand day!
