Urban Minimalist Wedding | Kansas City Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

When urban meets minimalist.

Urban Wedding | Kansas City Wedding Photographer | City Wedding | Minimalist Wedding

I absolutely love outdoor weddings and elopements, but there is something about an urban wedding that is gorgeous! I was so excited to be a part of Katie Carlson’s Eclectic + Styled Workshop and work with some of my favorite wedding vendors! I also met the most wonderful people and Dude the dog, who was the cutest pup.

If you’re thinking about having an urban wedding I highly recommend The Delaware. The windows let in beautiful light in and the white brick is the perfect backdrop. Its also surrounded by brick buildings and alleyways for your bride/groom portraits.

Thank you to everyone who made this wedding so beautiful. I highly recommend every vendor involved!

Baker Motherhood Session | Kansas City Family Photography | Jessika Christine Photography

The days are long, but the years are short.

Kansas City Newborn Photography Kansas City Family Photography

It’s the time of year for maxi dresses, wildflowers and warm summer evenings! Kyla and Travis were dressed perfectly for their outdoor motherhood session. Kyla is wearing a dress from my client closet and I suggested suspenders for little Travis. I love styling my clients and have a client closet full of gorgeous maxi dresses. I know figuring out what to wear during a session can be stressful! I want the entire process of booking and planning your session, with me, to be fun and exciting. This is why, I started a client closet and have an entire page on my website dedicated to styling here!

We had a lot of fun making wishes on dandelions and picking wildflowers! Travis was so excited to explore so we let him run around and enjoy himself. I love documenting children being themselves. When Kyla and her husband look back on these photos I want them to see authentic moments, nothing posed or fake. Documenting your children while they’re young is so important, in the blink of an eye the years have passed and you won’t get those moments back. I know the Baker family will treasure these forever.

Goewey Jamaica Elopement | Kansas City Wedding Photographer | Jessika Christine Photography

Have you ever seen a Hindu wedding ceremony? They’re very colorful and full of beautiful rituals!

Kansas City Wedding Photography Jamaica Elopement Photography

Ruchi and Evan had a traditional Hindu ceremony in Jamaica. It was a beautiful ceremony in an over water bungalow. The Hindu ceremony started at 10am and lasted almost two hours. There are so many interesting rituals involved and I loved watching all of them. Ruchi’s skirt alone weighed 40 pounds! It was very hot and humid, so we did wedding party photos and video as quickly as possible.

Later that day they changed into the traditional white dress and suit for bride/groom portraits on the beach. It started pouring rain, which only made it more beautiful. Ruchi and Evan have always been up for anything so I knew rain wouldn’t stop them. Their reception was in a ballroom with some family who could fly out to Jamaica. They had a mix of Indian food and BBQ! To end the evening they had a sparkler exit and headed back to their amazing honeymoon suite.

I am extremely lucky that they chose me to go on this wonderful adventure with them! Seeing a different culture was such an experience. There were beautiful things and horrible things. We went on an all day excursion Friday and had a blast. ATVs, Zip lining and a Jeep Safari all in one day. We got wet, dirty and a little sunburned, but I wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. The people in Jamaica are all so welcoming and they really do say “Yeah man” ALL THE TIME!

I hope to go on an adventure like that again and head home best friends with all of my clients!

Kelsey and Caleb had a cozy and intimate session in my studio. Their chemistry is amazing. I love how goofy they can be, and a minute later later slow down and breath each other in. Kelsey brought two of Caleb’s shirts to lounge in, her satin pjs and a very sexy bodysuit! Caleb brought his white, KC shirt(though he didn’t have it on for long!). We also had a beautiful bouquet by Nephew & CO for their session. Make sure to check them out, because their florals are works of art!

They have 4 wonderful children, so this session was a special time for them to just be with each other. After their session I showed them a local ice cream shop(the best ice cream) so they could grab a treat! Everyone should make their session a date and grab some ice cream for dessert!

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!
