So, something about me is, I like to meet all my clients before I shoot them. I like to hear them talk about their lives, what they’re interested in, and “feel out” their personality. I also do this so they know me! I try to be as transparent as possible online, so what you see […]

Rodger and Raylee McClelland are the definition of “meant to be”. The first time we all met up together was on a rainy day in Wichita. We met at Panera and I asked them my basic questions about the wedding, the details, and how they met. They’re like magnets, no matter what, they’re drawn together. […]
