I love seeing how God works to bring people together — especially soul mates.
Josh is from England and Victoria is from Kansas City. Two places that are VERY far from each other. 😉
But by “coincidence” (or rather, God’s sovereignty), Josh met Victoria’s dad, Jeff, at a conference where Jeff found out that Josh was going to be moving to Kansas City for work. Because of that connection, Jeff invited Josh to attend their church and help him get connected with people. Josh had heard that Jeff had some beautiful daughters and once he laid eyes on Victoria, he couldn’t have agreed more. He was quite smitten with the woman he thought of as such a “pretty lass” (in his own words) and almost instantly fell in love with who she was. Victoria, on the other hand, wasn’t all that into him at first, and had her doubts. But in time, as they got to know each other, Victoria fell strongly in love with the man that was everything she had ever dreamed to be with and hope to marry.
The two tied the knot on Saturday, June 5th, 2021 at Mission Road Bible Church in Kansas City.
That’s definitely the short version of their beautiful story, but needless to say, God’s hand was/is so evident in their relationship from the beginning.
I adore this couple and the time I got to spend with them on their wedding day! I am beyond thankful that the Lord allowed me to shoot their wedding day being 37 weeks pregnant — what a gift and blessing (and hard work haha)!! It was worth the major cankles at the end of the evening. 😉 Special shout out to my personal assistant, Alex, who came to be with me the first half of the wedding day to hold my gear and keep me snacked up and hydrated, and to my husband who came through for me for the second half of the day!!
Here are some images to tell the story of their beautiful wedding day, surrounded by friends & family. Unfortunately, Josh’s family wasn’t able to attend their wedding because of Covid restrictions with travel, but they were still very much present on the hearts and minds of the couple and their family.

I have always dreamed of photographing someone in a crazy amount of flowers. I just never thought it would be possible…I’d have to find a florist willing to create something dreamy, they’d have to be willing to spend their time setting it up, etc. There would be so much involved and who knows how much it would cost.
Well, a few months ago my dreams became a reality. The florist I work for as their photographer/videographer said they needed me for a styled shoot for promo/updated website photos. It was to take place at The Abbott Event Space and there were going to be three models to work with. My jaw was literally on the floor as Jenni with Wild Hill Flowers and her team of ladies set up the space with just gobs and gobs of flowers, then seeing all the ladies come out in beautiful wedding gowns, hair and makeup. I was lost in the beauty of it all and the best part was being able to just do my thing, work with the models, and get beautiful images.
Here’s some gems I’m proud of from that day.

This beautiful 2020 fall wedding took place on a cloudy, brisk day in the country at Schwinn Produce Farm in Leavenworth Kansas. I love fall weddings in the country and Hannah + Ryan’s day is one I won’t forget.
