Throwback to May 21st 2016: Terri & John Kutz Wedding

May 21st 2016

Before the Mona Rae Photography website, and by extension the blog I photographed many weddings that I'd love to share! As we begin this journey back into time, I want to first feature a wedding that is very special to me. Terri and John Kutz are both wonderful generous people who contribute so much to our community. During there ceremony there were very few dry eyes in the auditorium- which was John's intention!

Here's the review from Terri:

"Mona was our wedding photographer and WOW, what an amazing job she did! She was professional, easy to work with and came up with great ideas for photos. The best part though was her photos, they were absolutely beautiful! I would recommend Mona to anyone needing a photographer, she is super talented and always smiling!"

 

Venue: The Stage of the Memorial Auditorium and Convention Center- Pittsburg, KS

Cake and cupcakes: Sweet Designs Cakery- Pittsburg, KS
