Romantic Storytelling, Fine Art Wedding Photographer


Jana heard me speak at the Wichita Bridal Expo last year.  She told me that she came to my booth multiple times because I was so busy speaking with brides and was determined to talk to me.  When we finally got to talk, our personalities clicked immediately.  Jana is so full of positivity and love for life.  Mark shared with me how important photos were to him and he pulled out his phone to show me pictures of how he popped the question at Disney.

If you don’t know Mark & Jana, you would look at these pictures and say, “Aww!  Newlyweds are the best!”  These two have been married for 20 years and they finally got to have the wedding of their dreams as they renewed their vows to each other.

The couple was originally supposed to have their wedding at The Hilton but the hotel backed out due to Covid restrictions.  Then they booked The Hyatt who also backed out just a few weeks prior to their wedding date due to Covid restrictions.  (Both times completely unnecessary as we found out later on that the 45 guest limit was per 6ft pod, not total number).

Tanganyika came to the rescue!  Jana shared with me that she trusted her wedding planner’s eye for detail (Events & Designs by Ashley) and my photo magic to make Tanganyika look like the dream ballroom she had been envisioning.

There are a lot of gorgeous photos to scroll through and this is just the sneak peek.  Enjoy!

Mark & Jana,
Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your fairytale wedding!  The love that the two of you share is so sweet, kind and inspiring.  So many of your friends shared how your marriage has inspired their marriage and I hope that you continue to do that in the years to come.  I can’t wait to finish all of your images but hopefully this sneak peek will tie you over.  <3

Yours Truly,
