Stacey & Aaron: Married!

This spring we were honored to have Stacey and Aaron’s Hilton President Hotel wedding featured by The Coordinated Bride!! The team of vendors, led by Pretty and Planned Events, came together to bring Stacey’s dream wedding to life, and it was breathtaking! The cake was the centerpiece of the reception, and WOW! It was a show-stopper for sure. But nothing beats the moment of Stacey’s dad seeing her for the first time that afternoon. We love getting to be a part of moments like that!

Sunset Lake Engagement Session

Sydney & Kevin: Engaged!

This winter we put together a romantic sunset engagement session on the lake for Sydney and Kevin. It turned out to be an unusually warm day for January, and the way the sun set slowly over the horizon set the perfect mood for our little picnic on the dock complete with fresh blooms, champagne, and a donut cake!

We took a little stroll around the lake and decided to take a little hike down to the edge of the water, and we made a little magic. Love these dreamy photos!

Breckenridge Surprise Proposal | Colorado Engagement and Wedding Photographers

Breckenridge Surprise Proposal

Colorado Engagement and Wedding Photographers

This winter we had the opportunity to be part of this beautiful surprise proposal in Breckenridge, Colorado! We’ve been hanging on to the details of this for a while waiting for it to be published, and we are jumping with joy to finally share!!

We worked closely with the amazing ladies at Pretty & Planned and helped to bring John’s ideas and vision to life to create the most perfect proposal. He tied in personal little details and poured his heart into making this the most special and unforgettable moment for Emily.

The best way to hear the story is from Emily’s perspective:

“Growing up in a small town, everyone seemed to know everyone. Little did I know, just a short distance away lived my future husband, John. Since our paths had never crossed, a few mutual friends had the idea of getting us together. It all started casually on social media where John reached out and requested to be “friends”. Since we shared a lot of mutual friends, and he appeared to be super handsome, I accepted. A short while later, John decided to message me something which I will never forget. He said “I was just wanting to say high…”. Of course to this day, he has never lived down how he misspelled “Hi”! When I came home from college one weekend, all of our friends decided to get together. This is when I first met John and I instantly knew there was going to be something very special about this guy!

Throughout our time dating, John and I have loved adventures and traveling. We decided to plan a ski trip with some of our closest friends to Colorado. When we first arrived to Breckenridge, we were too early for check-in, so we decided explore the beautiful town. John suggested we should all go check out the Breckenridge Whiskey Distillery. Everyone agreed that was a perfect way to get our trip started off right! When we arrived, the host informed us there was a complimentary whiskey tasting event on the outdoor patio, and of course I was down for that! The “bartender” (she was actually the planner from Pretty and Planned pretending to be a bartender!) prepared some of their finest whiskey shots for our whole group and shared a little bit about each whiskey. After tasting several samples, the “bartender” said “I’ve actually got one more special blend I want you to try” As our friends quietly backed away (they were all IN on the plans!), she pulled out a tasting board with a personalized bottle that said “I was just wanting to say High…”, a picture of the first night we met, and amazing flasks engraved “Future Mrs. Molle” and “Mr. Molle”. At this point, I was overcome with emotion and realized that something incredible was about to happen. John held me by my hand and dropped down to his knee and asked me to marry him. Of course I said YES! I was completely taken by surprise that John had planned such a perfect proposal. It was very special to be surrounded by our friends and amazing that they were able to keep his secret. After all of the excitement, we went to Lake Dillon and watched the most beautiful sunset. This was one adventure we will cherish for a lifetime.”

After the proposal we of course stole John and Emily from their friends for a little bit for an impromptu engagement session. You know what the very best thing about these engagement photos is? The pure joy and happiness that is literally bursting through them. They just got engaged, and it was impossible for them to stop smiling! A whirlwind of emotions and excitement, and how lucky are we to have been able to capture it?!

This extra chilly Kansas City spring weather has us longing to be back on the beach! To help us warm up, we’re sharing a little look at Keeta and Brandon’s destination wedding in Cancun planned by the team at Love To Travel. Toasty sunshine, soft white sand, the bluest waves rolling in, and an intimate beach ceremony with close friends and family… we’ll just close our eyes and dream of being back in that moment!

Destination Wedding PhotographersOne of our favorite details from Keeta and Brandon’s wedding day, was their custom stationary designed by Nellie Sparkman.

Keeta and Brandon chose to make their wedding even more special by including their children in their wedding party, and having them be a part of their unity sand ceremony.

Valentine’s Boudoir Sessions Kansas City Boudoir Photographers

Valentine’s Boudoir Sessions Kansas City Boudoir Photographers

The perfect gift for your love this Valentine’s Day!

We’re only a few days into January and if it weren’t for Target clearing out all the Christmas decor and replacing it with cartloads of adorable Valentine’s Day decor (you know, all those cute little things you don’t need but end up in your cart anyways), we’d forget that the holidays have already come and gone! So, as we wave goodbye to Christmas and New Year’s, we say hello to 2018 and to finding the PERFECT gift for your love (or for yourself!) this Valentine’s Day!




Limited Spots available: click the “Book Your Session” button below!

valentine's boudoir kansas city


This year’s Valentine’s boudoir sessions will be the dreamiest yet, with a light and airy, romantic styled bedroom set. Think lots of white with soft touches of blushes and pinks. We’ll even have some pink bubbly to sip on while we shoot!



The best thing about this set, is you can take it in any direction you want! Choose a more reserved look with a cozy sweater paired with a lacey panty, choose to go more sensual with a little lingerie set, or choose to meet in the middle with a fitted, low-cut body suit.



These Valentine’s boudoir sessions will be shot at the Melissa & Beth studio one-on-one with Beth. After scheduling your session, you’ll fill out a short questionnaire that we’ll use to help prepare details for your session. During the session, you’ll be fully guided through each shot making sure you look your best with every click of the camera.



Grab a few friends and sign up for back-to-back session times so you can all come and hang out together while we shoot! Groups of 4 or more get a special group rate. Ask for the group code upon booking.



Each boudoir session is $350 and will include 15 fully edited high resolution digital images in a beautiful, password protected online gallery. Our online galleries allow you download your high resolution image files, or show them off in a digital gallery with a free app for your phone or iPad. Your images will be delivered to you on Monday, February 5th, which will give you plenty of time to put together a little gift to wrap up for Valentine’s Day!
