Morgan + Cason | Stella Springs Engagement PhotographerFebruary 3, 2018

We spent a crisp sunny morning at Stella Springs with Morgan and Cason for their engagement session. It’s a special place for both Morgan and Cason since they know the owners, and this is where they would be saying their vows soon. We can’t think of a more fun spirited couple, they make everything their own and so much fun. Working with these two was near and dear to our hearts because we’ve come to think of Morgan’s family as our family! While we consider all our couples as part of our ‘DP (DuMond Photography) Family’, Morgan’s family holds a special place because we’ve worked with them repeatedly over the years as other members of the family have tied the knot. Fun fact: Morgan’s Sister and Brother In-Law, Danielle and Drew, were DuMond Photography’s first official Bride and Groom! So, we’re not playing favorites here, but we adore this family and feel so blessed to have had the unique opportunity to earn their repeat business and witness their family grow over the years.

Morgan and Cason keep it light and fun, plain and simple. The chemistry between them and the ease of their interactions is what made their session so fantastic. We firmly believe that you make the moment, we just capture it. These two solidified that statement with their actions throughout the entire session. Everything from an effortless, loving stare, to a stifled laugh at a quiet joke when they thought they should be serious made this session unique to them and so carefree. Stella Springs Engagement Photographer

We also loved Morgan and Cason’s style! Their outfits were very well planned and fit their session and give them a dressy but still casual look. This is something we get asked about regularly and we’re happy to give advice on. Like these two, it’s great to complement one another but not be too matchy. It’s also so fun to accessorize but not take away from the real focus, you and your future Husband or Wife. Props can also be a fun way to add some additional interaction and personalization to your session. Morgan and Cason seem to have a shared love for music, so Cason brought his guitar along for the session. We couldn’t be happier with how this session unfolded and how much fun we had with these two. Their wedding day was even better, and we can’t wait to share all of the fun details and moments with you! Stella Springs Engagement Photographer

Holly + Will | Sassafras Springs Vineyard Wedding PhotographerJanuary 21, 2018

Holly and Will’s day was simply magical. Holly and Will had many dates at Sassafras Springs Vineyard which made it a perfect wedding venue for these two. The first thing that we noticed and admired was the fact that each person in attendance cared so deeply for Holly and Will and went above and beyond to make the day so fun and so carefree.Sassafras Springs Vineyard Wedding Photographer

The day started as most wedding days do, lots of preparations to ensure all the details are in place, getting the hair and makeup just right and most of all pure excitement. I don’t think we saw one person who wasn’t smiling that morning! Holly was surrounded by her adoring bridesmaids and Mother as she prepared for her walk down the aisle. We thoroughly enjoyed witnessing the Bridal party singing and dancing to all their favorite old school jams as they laughed about fun memories and created new ones together. Meanwhile, Will and his Groomsman swapped stories of their past adventures, laughed a lot and toasted to a perfect day. We’ll let Holly and Will share those photos with you…those dance moves were epic all day long! Sassafras Springs Vineyard Wedding Photographer

The ceremony was so intimate and sweet. Will’s Dad officiated the ceremony…does it get any more unique than that?!? With their closest friends and family as witnesses, Holly and Will said their “I Do’s”, shared their first kiss and celebrated all the way back down the aisle…cue more epic dance moves! The couple was then surrounded by the wedding party and shared lots of hugs and joyful congratulations as they made their way to the reception.

Holly and Will’s reception was the best celebration anyone could ask for! The details were amazing from the table décor-to the cigar bar-to the adorable Mickey and Minnie Mouse cake topper. That night many great toasts were made, there was lots of laughter and…you guessed it…lots of epic dance moves! We couldn’t be happier for Holly, Will and their beautiful family. We’re truly honored to have witnessed such a beautiful celebration. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Underwood! Sassafras Springs Vineyard Wedding Photographer

Kelsey Bridal | Integrity Hills Wedding PhotographerJanuary 20, 2018

What can we say about Kelsey’s Integrity Hills Bridal session? To say it was perfection would be an understatement! Kelsey, her Mom and sweet Teddy, the adorable doodle, were all smiles in anticipation of the fun. There was some talk about tornado threats but we didn’t let that scare us out of enjoying our session and making the best of it! The venue was amazing, Kelsey looked amazing, and the weather held off just long enough for us to capture some great shots. Integrity Hills Wedding Photographer

Kelsey chose the Chapel at Integrity Hills for her session because that’s where her wedding would be taking place at a later date. We found it to be a perfect venue for, not only this session, but on the wedding day. The Chapel has the sweetest little cottage next to it which offered Kelsey a comfortable place to get ready and it also offered it’s own photo opportunities with the adorable foyer and tall windows that provided precious natural lighting. The Chapel itself offers classic beauty with Ozark charm. We love the large windows that overlook Table Rock Lake…the view really doesn’t get much better! While Integrity Hills is known for it’s beautiful Chapel, we found that we enjoyed the immaculately kept grounds as well. The view of the lake and the rolling Ozark hills from the lawn and on site reception venue, The Stables, is just spectacular and really made the perfect backdrop for Kelsey’s session. Integrity Hills Wedding Photographer

Kelsey used her Bridal session as an opportunity to have a trial run done on her hair and makeup to make sure her wedding look was going to be all she dreamed of. We definitely loved her look! Kelsey embodied everything Bridal with her perfectly fitted gown, elegant hairstyle, natural but feature flattering makeup, and simple yet classy statement jewelry. We’re also convinced Kelsey is a pro model she just forgot to mention it! She was so easy to work with and an absolute joy to photograph. I love how she included her sweet pup, Teddy, and was so relaxed even with the probability of getting a little dog drool or grass on her gown. Teddy was such a special part of her and Adam’s engagement session so we were glad to see him included in more of the celebration. Our two hour session with Kelsey yielded so many images and we had the hardest time choosing our favorites!

Take a look at all the goodness from our time with Kelsey and enjoy the scenic views of the beautiful Integrity Hills by Big Cedar. We hope this session gives you a little insight into the benefits of a dedicated Bridal Session. Our goal is not just to provide you with more images, it’s to ensure you have the opportunity to familiarize yourself with us and our photographic process and of course to provide another opportunity to have fun and celebrate this fun time in your life! Integrity Hills Wedding Photographer

Alisha + Derek | Stella Springs Wedding PhotographerJanuary 20, 2018

Our day at Stella Springs was well spent for Alisha and Derek’s big day! Everyone braved rain, unseasonably cold temps, and flooding to celebrate. Alisha prepared in the adorable house on the hill with all of her attentive Bridesmaids. We loved her Western inspired look and the lace accents she added to her dress to make it her very own just took the look to another level of fabulous. The Bridesmaids were decked out in rose gold sequin dresses that made each one of the ladies look even more glamorous. This wedding was Bridal party goals! Stella Springs

Derek and his guys looked extra sharp as they enjoyed lots of laughs, a toast or two and made sure the details were taken care of for the ceremony and reception. We loved the moments Derek shared with his son Eli as they prepared for their first look moments with Alisha. Derek and Eli have that wonderful father-son bond that was just a joy to see from the outside looking in, they shared lots of laughs and sweet hugs in the moments that led up to the first look. Derek’s Mom gave Derek and Eli a final inspection before they made their way out to see Alisha. Stella Springs

The first look between Alisha and Derek was so sweet and so fun. His face was priceless when he turned to see her for the first time. So glad we were able to capture this moment for them, it was so honest, loving and adorable! We just love when couples get to enjoy the moment of seeing each other for the first time and have the opportunity to take in the details and lock them into their memory. So much goodness with the first looks with the Lyster’s! Stella Springs

It was time for Eli and Alisha to have their first look and to finally reunite as a family for the day. If you’re easily brought to tears by joy, like I may or may not be, you would have definitely shed a tear in this moment. Alisha was just as excited to see Eli as she was to see Derek. The most beautiful thing about this moment to me was the fact that Alisha was not only excited about marrying Derek and sharing her life with him, but just as excited about sharing her life with Eli.  When Eli turned around and saw her it was literally the sweetest moment of the day! He was so excited and told her how pretty she looked and then that’s when the waterworks may or may not have began behind the camera. Again, we feel so honored and blessed to be able to witness such intimate and special moments in peoples lives…it’s just the best! Stella Springs

With the rain coming down and cooling temperatures outside, the ceremony had to be moved inside. Even with the changes, we adored all the details of the ceremony and reception. The ceremony went on as if it had been planned that way from the beginning, which knowing Alisha and her mad planning skills, she likely had planned for every scenario and we love that about her. The rest of the ceremony was so beautiful and perfect. We enjoyed so many moments from the reception, especially the first dance between Derek and Alisha and the moment they included Eli for a dance as a family. There were so many genuinely perfect moments witnessed and captured that day. We’re overjoyed for these two and their sweet little family. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Lyster! Stella Springs

Ashley + Anthony | Bella Vista Arkansas Engagement PhotographerJanuary 18, 2018

Ashley and Anthony’s engagement session was so dreamy! We loved spending the day with these two even if it was chilly and we had to fight the rain. Again, these two are proof that rainy days can still be beautiful…it just takes the right person by your side. Bella Vista Arkansas Engagement Photographer 

We started our session at the lovely Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel and loved how intimate these shots turned out. We then moved on to the Lake to capture some shots in their canoe. Anthony’s parents were so awesome! His Mom made sure to bring extra umbrellas, coats, and of course their adorable doggy Ted. Anthony’s Dad brought the canoe and was nice enough to help keep it in place for a majority of the shots. Talk about a dream team, these people are all wonderful. Bella Vista Arkansas Engagement Photographer 

We braved the rain to capture some sweet shots. Anthony plays guitar so of course we had to capture him serenading Ashley on the water. Ted looked on after Ashley and Anthony until it was his time to shine! As many of you know, we’re dog people all the way, so Ted was the icing on the cake for this session. Bella Vista Arkansas Engagement Photographer 

We are so thrilled we were able to capture these moments for Ashley and Anthony! Bella Vista Arkansas Engagement Photographer
