Photographing a wedding is always fun, but there’s something extra special when you get to photograph one for a family member! When my cousin Kyle and his fiancée Kayla asked me to be a part of their wedding day by doing their photography I couldn’t have been happier! We met the bridal party downtown where the ladies were finishing up their hair and make-up. After a few last minute adjustments to make sure Kayla’s hair was just right she headed downstairs to meet Kyle. He was so excited to see Kayla and it showed in their sweet first look photos! Luckily we had a beautiful, if a bit warm, afternoon for some outdoor photos. After stopping for a few images at the graffiti wall we headed to the much shadier Lafayette Park for some park photos. We had a fun time roaming the park and the bridal party kept us all laughing the whole time. Our last stop before the ceremony was Laumeier Sculpture Park, a place that has special meaning for Kyle since he used to go there as a kid with his grandpa. We stopped at a couple of his favorite sculptures for some fun, unique photos before heading to the ceremony and reception!
At Andre’s Sunset Hills we met up with the rest of Kyle and Kayla’s families, including their son Kale. He was so excited to see his parents and we made sure to take plenty of family photos with this adorable, funny boy! He posed so well and gave us plenty of wonderful smiles. Their ceremony overlooked the golf course and they had a beautiful sunset to cap off the evening. We had so much fun capturing their wedding day and we wish Kyle and Kayla the best as they start married life together!
