A drive through western Kansas. The fields are on fire!
I'm no landscape photography but I do love photography and I love Kansas. Kansas has extreme weather and dramatic skies. It's landscapes are rolling and beautiful. It's desolate in many places and the emptiness of it reminds me of days gone by. Yesterday we shot a session in Quinter Kansas. As we drove back we decided to stop along the way and take photos of things we found interesting. It was a fun day for photography. These are some of my favorite shots from the drive from Quinter to Topeka.
We stopped when we saw these beautiful horses. They were very friendly! We only stopped for a few minutes. A policeman pulled up behind us and told us to move it along lol.
Just south of Manhattan along I-70 we saw fields burning. For those who live in Kansas know it's a controlled burn but nonetheless it makes for interesting and beautiful images.
The mix of the blue sky, barren hills, charred ground, thick smoke made for some very moody photos.
These fires are intense and strong and the wind made them even stronger, but they are controlled. They help everything grow better in the spring.
One of my favorites. The aftermath.
We were out there for maybe 30-40 minutes and this very nice gentleman drove up to greet us. He wondered why would ever want to photograph such a thing. He kindly agreed to the photo. He was responsible for keeping the flames under control. He thought it was funny to spray our shoes with the water he was controlling the fires with. A fun day.

We had the opportunity to photograph Kevin and Vickie Hennes’ wedding at the Mater Dei Catholic Church in Topeka and it was a beautiful wedding! The church set the stage with the huge pillars, the woodwork, and the traditional catholic ceremony. But the best part was the bride and groom, they were so happy and they smiled the entire time!! We had such a great time photographing them, and especially during the reception at The Foundry. They danced all night long!! It was so incredible to watch them all laughing, and cutting up on the dance floor. What an amazing day for the beautiful couple and their guests. Congratulations Kevin and Vickie! We wish you many years of happiness to come! This is always one of our favorite things we put together, the video. Lots of highlights from their big day with tons of video clips that show behind the scenes of their special celebration!! Turn the lights low, turn up the sound and enjoy!

As photographers, we are essentially problem solvers. Savannah’s senior session posed one problem that we needed to overcome and that was the very strong winds! But she made it so easy with her amazing smile, her positive attitude, and her fun personality. We got some amazing images of Savannah at B&C Equine, and then Eleanor’s Events and she really wowed us with how bright her personality is! When she smiles, she lights up the entire room! We are so excited to share these with you! Thank you! T.H. Peterson: How have your goals changed since you started as a freshman to now? Savannah: My freshman year I had actually no idea what I wanted to do, I started out wanting to study agriculture, but later decided that I was going to go to nursing school. T.H. P.: If you could take a dream vacation anywhere with anyone, where would you go and who would you take with you? Savannah: My dream vacation, I couldn’t pick just one place I’d love to travel them all, I would either take my b
Okay so where do I start? Natalie was such a special young lady. Her shoot was beautiful and perfect but I realized when we were done just how impressive Natalie is. As you'll read in this interview she said a movie she saw recently was "adorable and inspiring" and I laughed because that's exactly how I would describe Natalie! She is down to earth and confident and humble and smart and beautiful! She has a bright future for sure!! So excited to share her session. We did these on her property for the most part and I absolutely loved every part of her shoot! Enjoy! T.H. Peterson: What are you most excited about for your senior year? Natalie: I am most excited about cheering at football games with my Cheer team and competing at State cheer! T.H. P.: What are your plans after high school? Natalie: During my senior year I am attending Washburn Tech Cosmetology program. I would also love to build my own wedding venue some day and prepare the bride for her special day!
