Flint Hills Elopement | Kansas City Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

Couples, lets get wild.

Kansas City Engagement Photography Kansas City Wedding Photography

The Midwest may not have mountains, but we have the Flint Hills in Kansas. It’s the perfect spot for a sunset elopement! Zach and Ceirra met me out there for a picture perfect, golden sunset and we had such a fun time. Ceirra wore a beautiful Reclamation gown and had a bouquet made by Nephew & Co.

It was a warm, summer evening with a cool breeze and their chemistry was palpable. They are the definition of wild, passionate and inspired. After we took a few bride/groom portraits we ended the evening with them running naked through the hills! I love my couples and every adventure they take me on.

Did you know you don’t have to travel far or spend $$$ when planning an elopement?

2019-07-08_0009.jpg

There are beautiful, outdoor locations close to your own backyard! The location for this styled elopement was only 10-15 minutes outside of Kansas City. Waterfalls, woods and wildflowers, what else could you ask for?!

I put this entire session together, with an amazing team of vendors, within days. We want to show couples elopements are attainable and affordable. If you prioritize a team of vendors who specialize in elopements you can’t go wrong. We were able to incorporate a vintage style, and a wild bouquet!

The cost for an elopement similar to this would be less than $5,000! Think of the honeymoon you could have, or maybe a down payment on your first house, instead of spending so much on a big wedding. If a big wedding is the wedding of your dreams, go for it! BUT it’s not the only option and we want to show couples you can have a stylish elopement without traveling across the world or spending $$$$.

Thank you to this WONDERFUL vendor team for helping make this session so perfect. If you plan on eloping make sure to check out every one of these experts!

Boho Elopement | Kansas City Wedding Photographer | Jessika Chrstine Photography

When you work with a dream team and document the most beautiful boho elopement you get these images!

Boho Elopement | Kansas City Wedding Photography | Colorado Elopement | Outdoor Wedding | Outdoor Elopement Photos

When I drove down the huge gravel drive way at Wildcliff’s Venue I was in complete awe. It’s a beautiful location and the perfect spot for an outdoor elopement! I met Mallory of Wildly Yours Weddings & Elopements at the bridal cabin and we got to work setting up the most magical, boho table. Jordan and Heather arrived excited and ready to make the day perfect. Heather wore a beautiful, Rue De Seine dress and a boho crown by Whiskey & Bone. Her dried bouquet by The Cottage Rose was the PERFECT addition!

At Wildcliff there is an actual man cave where Jordan got ready. We took some classic portraits inside the cave, making these two look like royalty. On the way back across the quarry I documented Heather being a boho goddess. She swears she’s never modeled, but it’s hard to believe once you see her portraits! Then Hannah, the owner of Wildcliff, and I got in a canoe and pushed these two out into the water on a dock. I’m always up for an adventure and I’m so happy these two were as well. I don’t think I’ve ever been more comfortable taking photos. I laid in the canoe while Hannah basically paddled me around Heather & Jordan.

As the sun went down we got back on land for some wild and passionate photos. Most of these consisted of me laying on the ground and trying not to get stepped on, but IT WAS SO WORTH IT! I’m so grateful to everyone who made this day completely perfect.

Make sure to check all of these vendors when you’re planning your big day!

Audrey | Natural Light Studio Boudoir Session | Kansas City Boudoir Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

What do you get when you mix velvet, tiger print and a moo moo?! Keep scrolling to see!

Kansas City Boudoir Photography Kansas City Portrait Photography

Audrey’s Boudoir session was a fun mix of textures and patterns! She brought a velvet, tiger print dress and she looked like an 80’s rock star. At first she wasn’t sure if it would work for a Boudoir session, but Boudoir can be anything you feel sexy in.

Her last outfit consisted of a moo moo robe. I absolutely loved the simplicity of that entire look. Audrey said she felt like she was lounging around at home, in her robe. That is exactly how your Boudoir session should feel. Your session should feel like YOU, 100%!

What Audrey Had To Say:

I recently had a boudoir shoot with Jessika, and let me tell you, she made me feel comfortable and beautiful in so many ways. I think we are all insecure about parts of ourselves, but Jessika was able to photograph me in a way that I can look past my personal insecurities and truly love the way my body looks. Since leaving her studio, I've felt more confident in myself and more daring in my outfit choices. As well as feeling extremely sexy after seeing my partner react to the gorgeous photos I've received from my session. Jessika is very down to earth and easy to talk to, so that also added to my experience as I have a tendency to be somewhat shy, but I felt as if I'd known her for a long time. I'd definitely recommend Jessika to anyone looking for a boudoir photographer that will have you laughing, smiling, and feeling radiant by the end of the day!

Melissa Head Shots and Portraits | Kansas City Portrait Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

Who wants stiff head shots when you can have free spirited portraits in the great outdoors!?

Kansas City Portrait Photography Kansas City Senior Photography

I met with Melissa Loren from Harper & Colette on a stormy evening to take her head shots. She wanted her portraits to be bold and wild, because she wants the same traits in her clients. We started out by a lake with a very bold outfit, an orange bodysuit and lace dress. Melissa also uses florals in most of her portraits so we made sure to include a bouquet during her session. I absolutely love the colors she picked and would describe the first look as very BOLD!

For her second look she brought a handmade dress by Sew Wildflowers for the wild, boho look. I took her to a field of yellow wildflowers and asked her to run, spin, and whip her hair around. At one point I think I asked her to do 5 things at once, but she did all of it perfectly. The storm coming in that evening was the cherry on the top. It added that extra wild element to her portraits.

When a business owner asks me to do their head shots I always make sure to discuss what they’re wanting to convey to their clients. Your head shots should show YOU and your business. Lets stop with the stiff, studio head shots and start creating magic!

Kreuer Church Wedding | Kansas City Wedding Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

There are no accidental meetings between souls.

Kansas City Wedding Photographer | Colorado Elopement | Seattle Wedding | San Diego Wedding Photography

Isaac and Caley are wonderful humans. When we sat down for coffee to plan their wedding day we talked about their lives together, traveling, living in a RV and I knew we would be an amazing fit! Their wedding day was beautiful and I love the urban vibe we captured.

They were married in a very small town in Missouri, inside an old church with huge stained glass windows. Right across from the church is a small downtown area consisting of brick walls like the one above. Next on my bucket list, to photograph a wedding in, is a glass church!

I know these two will have a blessed life together and I can’t wait to see what their future holds. Congrats Isaac and Caley Kreuer!
