2018 is without a doubt the biggest baby boom year ever at {beckynovacekphotography}!

I have been thrilled to see more newborns by June 1, 2018, than I’ve ever experienced in a full year prior to this year. 

Many of the newborns I’m photographing are brides and grooms whose weddings I’ve photographed, and that is the best!

I love being a family’s primary photographer for all their occasions and events, and getting to know them as they experience life.

Adding a new family member has to be at the top of the list right beside getting married, right? 

When they live out of state and make a newborn session “back home” part of their first visit back, I am in awe. 

This is the case with Ridge. 

First of all, I love his name, and I love that his big sister/dog Ava was in on the action at his session.

It’s only fitting with his mom Courtney graduating as from KU Veterinary Medicine days after Ridge was born!

I love this little family!


Such a gentle giant!

About 8 years ago, I took Dylan’s senior photos.

Fast forward to 2018 and I was honored to be Dylan + Kara’s wedding photographer.

There are so many things I would like to say about what a beautiful couple they are, but I think the photos speak for the fun-loving, caring people they are.

I know for sure that their family means everything to them, and that they greatly value their friends…most of their wedding party have been friends for many years. 

Also, one of my favorite details of their love story, is that their dogs brought them together via social media. 

Being a huge dog lover, that says a lot to me!

Their dads were comic relief several times through the day!

The groom’s nieces were a highlight to watch through the day!

 

Their Pastors were the BEST dancers! So fun to watch!


The Best Man Connor was hilarious, with this moment, as well as his toast to the couple…which was more of a roast!

 


Such an amazing day with this beautiful couple! Wishing all the best to Dylan + Kara!

Years ago, before I had a studio, I took a few photos on location and even from my empty living room.

A few people saw what I was doing and liked it.

Liz and her mom Larae fit in that category.

They believed in me, and I think I can say that Liz’s senior photo session was a “break out” session for me.

Her beauty and confidence, plus her beautiful horse allowed me to really showcase the photos I wanted to take and just needed the opportunity to!

I had been taking photos on the side, part-time, prior to her session and shortly after her session, I had the confidence to go for it full-time.

So, first off, right here and now, I want to say: Thank you Liz + Larae!

I’ve had fun and shared so many laughs with this family, and that makes my work so much more inspired.

Without further ado, here are Brock (the only man good enough for Liz, in my opinion!) + Liz.

The joy you see here, is the real deal.

This spontaneous moment before the festivities began was sooooo special.

And this is absolutely classic for this mother daughter team.

So many amazing moments on this epic day!

Wishing you all the best that you so richly deserve Brock + Liz!
