Lauren and Greg live in Texas, but their relationship began in the fall of 2006 while attending the University of Missouri. Greg graduated at the end of that year and accepted a job in Colorado, yet distance did not interfere with destiny. Knowing they could not live apart any longer, Lauren moved to be with Greg after finishing her last semester in June 2007. Little did they know that decision would be the beginning of something great!

Over the past five years their love has grown exponentially. Their journey has taken them to many locations throughout the states, but it was a trip to Cozumel, Mexico in June 2011 that set the stage for the next chapter in their life together. Greg proposed and Lauren accepted with happy tears! And with their love for Mizzou, they decided on a Columbia, Mo destination wedding so they could say “I do” in the city where it all began.

Lauren and Greg, you are a fabulous couple! You’re wedding was beautiful and I’m so happy that I was able to play a part in capturing those memories for you. Thank you for trusting in my vision!

I also have to give a huge shout-out to my second-shooter, Sarah Hoffman. Sarah is a photojournalism student at MU and was eager to jump on board with me to assist that day. It was great to have another photojournalist shoot alongside me and I found that our images blended seamlessly together. She documented the guys getting ready and then assisted with coverage up until the reception. I’ve included about a dozen of her amazing images in this post.

Of course the day wouldn’t have been a success without the other vendors who played a part in bringing this wedding to life:

Okay, enough talk. Now it’s time to enjoy the photos!!!
