Catherine & Matt // Josyln Museum Wedding


Catherine and Matt // Josyln Museum Wedding // Omaha Wedding Photographers

We started the day in a 95-year-old church in the heart of the Midtown Omaha.
Catherine got ready in the church's library at the top of the steps where Matt's parents exchanged their own vows years before. It was quiet, for the most part. Catherine's sisters & mother fluttered around the room making sure everything was in its place, while I let her sit for a moment & take it all in. We could hear Matt & his brothers laughing in the room next door, which only aided in the anticipation before their first look. 

After guiding them both to the church's courtyard, Catherine snuck up on Matt & it was as if a massive weight had been lifted off his shoulders. They were beaming the whole time & for the rest of the day they were glued to each other's sides. 

The Joslyn Museum was the best choice for their reception & we probably got way too excited while shooting. Walking up the grand marble steps is one thing, but stepping inside & looking at the history lining the walls made the setting feel so timeless. 

This is how we hope every wedding plays out- no complaining, no stressing about the little things. They simply relished in the fact that they created this new life together & it's only just the beginning.

Tara & Nick // Summer Wedding in Lincoln, NE



At every wedding I try to remember three great things that made it unique & special to me as a photographer/guest/fan-of-weddings. 
At this particular celebration, the three things that stood out to me the most were:

1. The way Tara fell into Nick naturally
Every pose we would suggest would turn into Nick holding Tara at some point, because that's just how genuinely comfortable they are around each other. It has become second nature to them. 

2. How it was a genuine necessity to immediately go home following the ceremony to say "hi" to their pup, Zuke. 
Let's be honest with ourselves, guys. Dogs make life so much better, so please include them on your wedding day, (I would be forever grateful.)

3. The architecture of Lincoln, Nebraska.
It's no mystery that quirky buildings & a good brick wall are the perfect ingredients to make any small-ish town look #artsy. There's just something special about Nebraska, though. The places you can find, if you take the time to walk around, are endless.
