I met with Kathleen & Thomas for their Antioch Park Engagement session last spring and it was so so fun!! If you guys have been keeping up with my past blogs you know how much I love this park! The different locations this one park has to offer is a huge highlight of spending the evening here!
\We went from the water fountain, to a beautiful flower field, to the pond crossing the park has built to walk across! I love giving my couples variety in your engagement gallery so you have lots of options to choose from when it comes to printing or sending invitations.
For the session, Kathleen wore a vintage dress! It was actually her moms that she wanted to incorporate into her engagement photos! I freakin’ love personal details like this so I was a fan. And I’d say it worked so well for her what do you guys think?! And her brown double strapped sandals topped off her whole look! I found a similar pair at target incase you were hoping to grab a pair for your engagement session too! Check them out here!
Kathleen and Thomas are the sweetest couple and we had the best time laughing together during their Antioch Park Engagement session!
Katherine & Cody met with me on a Kansas City Rooftop for their engagement session! Most people wouldn’t think a rooftop could be an extravagant location for a shoot but I would consider it a hidden gem for big cities!
Katherine wore a beautiful blue and white dress with a statement pair of red heels! She rocked those heels and luckily I was able to find a similar pair sold at Macys! Check them out here!
We were able to get Katherine & Cody a good variety of shots despite working in a limited space! Truthfully, I think it was perfect because together they were really the main focus of every shot. They complimented each space we worked in!
I had so much fun during this Kansas City rooftop shoot! It’s so obvious going through these photos that Katherine & Cody have so much fun together and seeing how much they love one another first hand was so so amazing.
I love working with all my couples & being able to share their love stories feels like a dream. Stay up to date with new stories on my blog!
Christina and Nick had their engagement session at the snowy Shawnee Mission park right outside of Kansas City! I love this park and all it has to offer, not only in the winter but the sunsets during the summer are a can’t miss!
You can read more about the park and its trails here!
Christina and Nick stayed cozy their entire session while still showing off their playful side by having a brief snow fight! I feel like we timed their session perfectly because before heading towards the water, we got to enjoy the sun before it hit the horizon! And once it hit over the water, golden hour couldn’t have been better!

Christina and Nick, thank you for choosing me to shoot your engagement session! I had the best time with you both!
I met with Christina and Nick at Antioch Park in Kansas City last summer! This was a perfect night to dance around the park. Christina wore the cutest polka dot dress to start the night! I actually found a this dupe to her dress that I might buy for myself!!
After making getting away from the water for a bit, they both changed into a bit more casual clothing! This was actually perfect because not only did they want some fancier clothing options for their session, we set up the time where they could fit both dressy and casual into their session!
We were lucky enough to get a beautiful sunset that night! The sun peaked through the trees while I had Christina and Nick share a few intimate moments with one another. Antioch Park is honestly the perfect place to get some variety during an engagement session! We were able to get soft light around the trees while also getting that beautiful golden hour light on the water from the sun! This park, and Loose park, are so cool to have right in the city! Check out this engagement session I had there last spring!
This day with Christina and Nick was too fun! They’re both full of so much love for one another and have so much fun just doing the simple things with one another!
I met Kelsey and Ben for their engagement session at the Nelson Atkins Museum in Kansas City! We were able to take advantage of the entirety of their beautiful outdoor space!
They did a few outfit changes during their session too! A few dressy options and a few more casual, which was exactly what they wanted to stay true to them as a couple!
Although it was a gloomy day, that didn’t take away from Kelsey & Ben complimenting each location we went to! Not only did they share an exciting champagne pop to celebrate being engaged, they brought their dog to join the fun!!
I’m a huge fan of ALL my couples bringing their dog(s) to their their engagement sessions! One of my couples, Megan & Andrew, had these fun floral collars made for their dog’s for their engagement session, check them out here!!
I was super grateful to have spent this night at the Nelson Atkins Museum with Kelsey & Ben! So much laughing & dancing around the museum it couldn’t have gone any better! These two are filled with so much love for one another I feel honored to have captured it!
When Megan and Andrew told me they wanted to have a beautiful Spring outdoorsy vibe to their engagement photos, I immediately thought of Loose Park, here in Kansas City.
Loose Park is great because there’s the rose garden, which makes for a stunning backdrop in photos. There are tons of trees, and a pond with beautiful bridges. It just really captures the Spring weather here in KC.
Megan and Andrew had their wedding a few months later in September, 2021. You can see it here. I’m so glad we got to take these photos for them beforehand! We even got to include their pups for some of the pictures, which is always a good way to personalize your engagement photo shoot.
If you’re thinking about where to have your engagement session I totally recommend Loose Park as a great option!
Megan & Andrew, thank you for choosing me to capture this season of your lives!! I wish you nothing but the best!
I met Hannah and Justin in the beautiful downtown area of Parkville, Missouri for their engagement session. We wandered around the streets, snapping photos in front of the little shops and having a great time.
Hannah and Justin nailed it with their wardrobe, finding pieces all in the same color family and coordinating instead of matching. Always a win. Hannah’s dress also had texture in the fabric and movement in the design – it worked perfectly for all the dancing/laughing shots we got at the end.
When we were done on the streets, we moved to a beautiful spot on the river right outside of Parkville. These two are so in love, and it was fun to capture their dynamic together. You can tell they have a lot of fun!
Hannah & Justin, thanks for choosing me to document this exciting time in your life! I loved shooting with you two!

I met up with Katie & Ryan for their couples rooftop session in Kansas City near the Crown Center. As you’ll see these two are just FUN.
Their session was full of laughter and goofy faces and intimate moments between the two of them. Their love is very evident and authentic.
And let’s not even mention their STYLE. I mean, checkered pants and a black jumpsuit?! These two are classics.
I loved every second of this session, and highly recommend this location to any of my clients looking to get this couples rooftop session vibe.

Morgan and Chris had their engagement session at the Museum of Prairiefire, here in Kansas City. I love this location for photo sessions because it allows for so much versatility.
The colorful windows add some color to the background especially in the Winter & early Spring before things are blooming. And they give you a wide range of outfit options! You can choose to wear warm or cool colors, either looks great.
And bonus: there’s so many great restaurants nearby – I always encourage my couples to make a date night out of their engagement session since they’re already all dressed up already!
