Jim & Jeannie | Wedding



Life has been hard for Jim and Jeannie these past few years, as they have equally suffered through the death of a previous spouse as well as the recent and sudden death of Jim's oldest son.  Their wedding was ...





And finally for the long-due post of the wedding I said I would share!  Sorry for the wait... blogging has been pushed to the side a bit with all the busyness of our home lately. =)  I had the pleasure of second-shooting this wedding for Olivia over at Olivia J Photography (check out her post of the wedding here!) at a beautiful Church in Kansas City.  

Life has been hard for Jim and Jeannie these past few years, as they have equally suffered through the death of a previous spouse as well as the recent and sudden death of Jim's oldest son.  Their wedding was a second chance at marriage for both of them, and it was "a beautiful one" to put it the way friends and family did that day.  Jeannie was SO full of excitement the entire morning as she got ready for the ceremony, always asking from anyone who may have seen or talked to Jim upstairs, "How is he doing?  Is he getting nervous?  Is he excited!?"  The sweet love note he texted to her just before the ceremony caused an eruption of squeals, giggles, and "awwww"s as she passed it around to her twin sister, mother, and close friends to read.  Jeannie's mom was such adorable mother-of-the-bride - it was so sweet when her eyes started to fill as she watched Jeannie getting ready!  If anyone was happy for the couple and their new life together, it was her. =)




"He just saw me!!" as she peeked through the door's glass panel... =)


 After the ceremony and portrait time (they were such troopers in the freeeezing temps!), we headed to the reception site to take some bridal portraits in the cutest little rustic-styled room...

  2. Oh, this is a lovely post Anna! <3
    The first shot is beautiful! It is a lovely church. =)
    I really like the bridal portraits in the "rustic-styled" room, the atmosphere is bright and flowery!
    Something I noticed about your photos they always seem to have a bit of a warmer tone to them, is that a personal preferene that you add in post processing, or are Cannon camera's just cool like that?

    1. Thank you, Jenny! =) I think the warmer tone is a result of both, actually - Canon cameras do produce slightly warmer images than Nikon, but it's also a personal preference and I give my pictures a warm white balance when I edit. ;-)

  4. Anna! You totally rocked this wedding girl! Did you end up renting a lens? Your wide angle shots are to die for.

    1. You're so sweet, Mackenzie! No, I didn't rent for this wedding as I was just second-shooting... I did rent for the wedding I shot last month though. I ended up using RentGlass.com instead of the site you mentioned, as they were pretty inexpensive and had a local shop. Was very pleased with their lenses and customer service! =)
