Bringing in the architecture of where you live makes your wedding so personal. Wedding photographer, Shelley Paulson, did a beautiful job of showing off the landscape from around the beautiful city of Kansas City, Missouri for this wedding. Many of these pictures are magazine worthy!
Shelley gave me a little insight to what was happening on the day of the wedding...
"I’d been anticipating this wedding for over a year, and it was certainly worth the wait! I know I use the word “sweet” a lot, but I could not find a better descriptive for this wedding because it was simply sweet!
The wedding of Arthur and Maggie took place in the midst of a massive heat wave that baked much of the country’s midsection. This day was no different, with temperatures over 100 degrees. Thankfully the ceremony was inside at the New Life Event Space, and we saved our bride and groom portrait session for the end, when the sun was lower and a nice breeze was blowing. Oh, and we made a little stop in the middle of the portraits to get milkshakes at one of Kansas City’s oldest diners, Town Topic."
"Here is what Maggie wrote on my Facebook wall after having her photos for a few days, “I saved one of your photos of us as the background on my phone. Every time I look at it, it takes my breath away and makes my heart skip a beat. I can’t wait to pick some to print! I am filled with admiration and joy at the beauty and love you captured between us on our wedding day. Our family members are in awe and so are we. Thank you, thank you for everything.”
This is why I love my job. It can be stressful at times, and I push myself very, very hard always to do the best work I am capable of. When I can give couples this kind of experience, it’s all worth it!" ~ Shelley

Welcome Rafael Benevides. A wedding photographer from Petrolina , Pernambuco, Brazil. My work is based on people, I love to observe and photograph them, every feeling that exists in the relations between people, the love, the longing, the explosion of joy, be near and far away, the contrast of generations of humor, past, present and future, all that enchants me. for me, photography is a mix of what I am, my world, my dreams and grooms want that for himself. It is the way I communicate with the world."
So here we go, lets take a look at Brazilian weddings... Rafael style...
