Kansas City Engagement Photographer | John & Shelley

Meet John & Shelley! I couldn’t be more excited to have the honor of photographing their wedding in October, as they are so full of personality, zeal and adoration for each other! They are hard core marathon runners, and have traveled all over to run marathons together. They will even be running one the MORNING of their wedding!!! Impressive, huh?!:)It has been a blast getting to know them so far, and I love how easy going they were in front of my camera!I got SO excited when Shelley suggested using their bikes for their session – a great idea! I love when couples incorporate things they love to do together into their shoot:)I will always smile when I see this next one:)You two crack me up!Shelley, you are so gorgeous.

Kansas City Engagement Photography: Sarah & Adam!

My first engagement session of the season, and these two were a blast to photograph! Sarah and Adam’s wedding is a little less than two months away, and it was so fun having an evening to get to know them more. Not to mention, the weather was absolutely perfect. Enjoy a few of my favorites from their session!Sarah & Adam are putting together a dance for their reception, and I got to see a little preview of it!:)I could have photographed them around these blooming trees all night, SO beautiful!Favorite:)AH! Another favorite! If were still in a public studio space, this would for sure be one of the big canvases on my walls!!Thanks you two for being so photogenic and fun to work with! I can’t wait for your wedding in June!!

Leigh & Nick: Engaged!

I first met Leigh and Nick at Leigh’s sister’s wedding (see Trey & Lacey’s wedding here!). I loved Leigh from the moment I met her, and I knew her boyfriend was pretty cool too, as he saved the day with her bridesmaid’s dress that just refused to zip!:)You can imagine my complete excitement when I got a call from Leigh a couple months ago, announcing that they were engaged! It’s SO fun to work with families, and I am so excited to photograph the 2nd wedding in this sweet family!

Leigh & Nick’s natural response in front of a camera? Laughter and snuggles:)
favorite!Thanks so much for choosing me to be your photographer, you two! I can’t wait for your wedding!!:)

Nate & Staci: Engaged!

How to even begin a post about such a sweet friend?! Staci and I took art classes together at SBU our first semester of college (or should I say suffered through them?! They weren’t exactly exciting classes!!), and then didn’t stay in touch after I transferred away after that first semester. These were pre-facebook days! We re-connected on facebook a couple years later, and then last year Staci and I both moved to Kansas City and we were able to reconnect in person! I have loved having her friendship, and I can’t say enough how excited I am for her and Nate! They met earlier this spring, and it was obvious by the way Staci spoke of him that he was going to be in her life for quite a while:)Watching a friend being pursued and loved by a Godly man is one of the best things ever! I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

They met in person for the first time at this very table…It sure didn’t take very long for me to know I would LOVE photographing them! Snuggling is something they can’t get enough of, and my favorite thing in photos:)These next photos were taken in the garden where Nate proposed!
You are SO gorgeous, Staci!!!I know this last one is not in focus, but I dig it:)
