Today’s featured vendor has been photographing weddings for 13 years, starting when she was just 17 years old (kind of makes you feel like a slacker, eh?). Her photographs aren’t just about capturing beautiful images, they also really allow the personalities of their subjects to shine through, and after all weddings are all about the love.

Rebecca works from her home in Olathe, Kansas, and says she loves taking only a few steps to the office everyday (bed-head intact). She first became interested in photography as a kid. She began posing her friends on the monkey bars in elementary school, and took her first (and only) photography class in high school. She was hooked from that moment.
“There’s something about showing a person, client, or friend a different side of themselves…a beauty that perhaps they didn’t know they possessed.”
She started her business when she was 17, the summer after graduating high school. She was shooting only a handful of weddings while attending school at Kansas State, and never knew that it could turn into a full-time career.
Her favorite subject to photograph other than weddings is a family with their first child. She says “Something about the intense connection between Mother-Father-Firstborn is so beautiful! They are so in love, and the little one is so secure and safe with its parents. It’s a magical time for sure.”
Rebecca’s been shooting weddings since day one, and her favorite part about being a wedding photographer is providing a detailed, and artistic account of the couples day. She has a unique eye, and says her couples appreciate that they can trust her 100% to capture all the important images. She says she feels happier than she can put into words, to be able to do this job.
Words of advice she has to offer couples picking their photographer:
“Make sure you “click” with your photographer. Often times you will be spending more time with them than with anyone else on your wedding day, and you want to have complete faith and trust in their craft. Secondly picture yourself in their images. Would you be happy with those images in your album. It is easy to get caught up in photography trends, so browse through images with the future in mind!”
