Austin’s Kansas City Senior Portrait Session   |   Lux et Amor   |   Senior portrait photographer

Here are a few of my favorite shots from Austin’s downtown KC senior portrait session. I literally SQUEEZED this session in two days before I moved from Kansas City to Pensacola and I’m so glad I was able to do so! Austin was a pleasure to work with ( and handsome to boot)!

Chelsea & Michael   |   Lux et Amor   |   Pensacola Wedding Photographer


I’ll be the first to admit that I have a really hard time with blogging weddings. The problem is that there are so many images, each of which I feel needs to be included in the story. If I actually included all them all it would be more like a novel than a blog post. BUT I did my best to narrow it down to some of my favorite highlights from Chelsea & Michaels big day, which was chalk full of goofiness, gorgeousness and happy tears ( not to mention the most epic first dance I’ve yet to witness and some genuinely heartfelt surprises). My favorite part, by far, was the way that Chelsea and Michael kept looking at each other with complete adoration. I mentioned to Chelsea that I kept getting goosebumps while going through their images, because of the completely obvious genuine love that she and Michael shared, and this was her response. ” Awe that is so sweet. Marriage is serious work but I’m glad that I have him to work with me on it <3″ I’m pretty sure these two know what it’s all about.

And if you missed Chelsea’s bridal session look for it in recent blog posts, she’s quite the stunner. 😉
