Mae and Chris live in beautiful downtown KC, MO, so they wanted their session to really reflect them and where they like to spend most of their time together. And how can you go wrong with hanging out in the Crossroads for the afternoon? Their spring wedding will be at the beautiful Hobbs Building, and we just can’t wait!
We had to take advantage of this amazing February weather in KC and go out for some engagement sessions! First up is Andrea and Drew. They wanted to hang out downtown and hit up some of their favorite spots. So that is just what we did. And can we just say how excited we are for their wedding coming up in September? It is taking place at the location where our very first wedding was shot 13 years ago!!! Until then Andrea and Drew…
When we first met Megan and Caleb at our studio back in March of 2016, we knew right away that they were “our people”. It was just such a great fit and thankfully they felt the same way! We had a blast at their engagement session later that spring, where it was absolutely imperative that his 1977 lime green Ford F150, that he re-built with his grandpa, made a cameo. By the time their wedding day rolled around, we were even more excited. There were so many special little moments between friends and family, they had Waldo Pizza for dinner [can everyone just do this, please?], and they ended the night with a private dance to their first song…just the two of them…before being seen off by their guests. It was an absolutely perfect day, and we are so glad we get to share it with you. Megan and Caleb, thank you so much for including us and trusting us to tell your story. Best wishes for a lifetime of happiness!!!

We have never done [and will never do] traditional bridal shows. They are a great resource for a lot of people, but they just don’t align with our typical clients and how we work. BUT, we were invited to take part in a non-traditional and super cool “bridal show” [a vendor mingle, as they call it] called The Big Reveal. And we are so glad we accepted their invitation…because that is where we met Hanyu and Byung. These two came up to chat with us, and ultimately decided they wanted us to be the ones to photograph their wedding. Yay! When we started planning their engagement session, we asked them [like we do all of our couples] how they spend their time together, where they like to hang out, and what they like to do. We feel it is important to try to make each session as personal as possible, so that it really reflects the couple and their relationship. These guys said they are pretty quiet and love hanging out at home, in their comfies, with their adorable little doggie [shout out to my fellow homebodies!]. So that is naturally where we started out. When they do go out, they love heading downtown…and who doesn’t, right? Downtown KC is where it’s at, these days! All in all, we just had a great time getting to know them a little more, and we are even more excited for their wedding this spring. Thanks for spending the afternoon with us guys…we can’t wait for May 13th!
Some people in KC might not have wanted the snow we got a little while back. But we were thrilled because it made this beautiful couple’s day all the more magical. In fact, we think more people should plan January weddings! This was an absolutely lovely day, and Rebecca and Coleton did things just how they wanted. From Rebecca getting ready in her family home, to the wedding party hitting up Arrowhead for photos, to the Louisburg Cider Mill donuts they brought out for their guests at the end of the night. It was all just perfect. Thank you, Rebecca and Coleton, for inviting us to be part of your day. It has been an honor getting to know your family, and we are grateful that we get to tell your story.
