Back in November, we had the pleasure of being a part of Jeff and Gretchen’s big day. We found ourselves Omaha where they had an amazing urban set up. Since these two are such a cool couple, we wanted to learn a little bit more about them.
Jeff and Gretchen have an amazing engagement story. They were on vacation with Jeff’s family in Oahu, so you can imagine the scenery was breathtaking. “I suspected a proposal might happen, but on the last day of the week-long trip, I figured I must have been wrong,” Gretchen told us. After dinner that night, they decided to take a walk on the beach with Jeff’s brother and sister-in-law. “They trailed behind us a bit,” she explained, “and much to my surprise, Jeff got down on one knee with a ring in hand.” Jeff’s brother got some killer photos of the engagement. We can’t imagine a more perfect place for a proposal like that.
On their wedding day, Jeff and Gretchen got married at the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Omaha. Gretchen and her mom had been members of the parish for years, and the church’s relaxed feel was everything they were looking for. For their reception, they chose Omar Arts & Events. They told us a little more about this choice for them. “We felt like the building had a lot of history and character. It was going to be something different and new for a lot of our friends and family.” The lack of in-house catering allowed them to choose one of their favorite local restaurants, Sgt. Peffers, as the caterer. Size was another thing they kept in mind while choosing a venue, and Omar Arts & Events was perfect for accommodating their large families and guest list.
As for the theme itself, Jeff and Gretchen were going for an urban glamour art deco feel. I enjoyed going to the Benson Business District to photograph. Our first stop was the 1912 bar and then off to Beercade for some gaming What was more important to them, though, was finding ways they could help their guess share in the happiness they felt on their wedding day. “Any decisions we made were based more and more on how we could make sure that the day felt truly joyous for everyone that could share it with us,” Gretchen told us.
The wedding was beautiful, and we wish Jeff and Gretchen a long and happy marriage. Congrats!

We had a fun day last week photographing an adventurous group of kids. It was enjoyable to relax and unplug outdoors in a new tent we wanted to try out. With just a short time before the rain started, Marlee, Ruby, and Stella showed off their skills recently learned hula hoop skills. Thanks to Gary and Andria for coming out with their kids.
Hope you enjoy the images!
This week we are going to look at some family pictures I did a while back. The Wasson family was so much fun to shoot. These images have this fun fall feeling to them.
Family pictures are really important to get every couple years or so. Especially, when you have young kids. I like to show the relationships that are formed between family members and really capture that essence in the photos. The best way to use these family photos is not only to document, but to show the playfulness, stubbornness, shyness, etc. in the photos. Be on the look out for family sessions in October.
After photographing their wedding, Madison and Ryan came to me for their maternity pictures. As a studio known for wedding photography, we also enjoy doing family and other special ocassions photos. With expecting a new little one, Madison and Ryan wanted to capture this event in their lives with unique photos. For this shoot, we decided to do something fun and different than the typical studio shoot. Choosing to do the shoot at a location, we found a field with nice open space and beautiful scenery. Check out the images.
