Mr. & Mrs. Mense | 1/26/19

Mizzou Soccer has brought so many great people into my life. My first year, it brought Nici! At the time she was Mizzou Athletics nutritionist, before she made her way to the big league, with the NY Jets! She offered me the opportunity to take her wedding photos and UGH, how lucky did I get!?

She and Hunter are a such a beautiful and electric couple, every moment with them was perfect! The love between the two of them, that their friends and family have for them…you can see it, but you can feel it in these photos!

So take a look, enjoy the Mense wedding, ugh, I’m just…in love! (Best viewed in the lightbox, so give them a click, and tab through!)

Summer of Freelance - Sporting KC, Vancouver Whitecaps, NYCFC, Major League Soccer

Edit: made this in September, forgot about it ‘til right now. No time like right before the new year… 😁

Busy summer for ya girl has finally come to a close. I’m avoiding doing schoolwork, typical, and thought, “I haven’t posted any of my freelance work from the summer!” So instead of doing my readings, I’ll do that now!

I worked back at my old stomping grounds with my SKC crew, I had the pleasure of photojournaling the fan experience of my hometown team for the League’s site. I was also given the opportunities to shoot for Vancouver Whitecaps’ and New York City FC’s youth teams. Take a peek below, at selects from all that freelancing fun.

Here’s to more in 2019 🎉

2018 Seniors

Year two down for Mizzou Soccer. College athletics is so cyclical. Every year we get a new freshman class, and every year we lose a set of seniors. I'm still not used to it yet 😩

We had six seniors leave us this year, one in December and the other five this May. Take a look below at my girls. I'm so happy that we got these two years together. I need the NCAA to take a look at its rules so that I don't have to keep getting emotional at this turnover!

Mr. & Mrs. Imhoff | 12/16/17

What better way to spend a day than capturing memories of one of the most important days of a person's life? Colleen is Mizzou Soccer's athletic trainer and I had the privilege of shooting her big day! She became Mrs. Imhoff in front of friends and family. I'm so thankful to have been a small part of the memories. Congrats again, Colleen and Grayson. Love you guys!
