Kansas City is full of gorgeous locations to propose to the love of your life. Jackson planned his proposal at the WWI memorial in Kansas City.
Jackson wanted to fully surprise Kiley so he needed a little help. He reached out to me a couple weeks before and asked me to help him plan it so it went smoothly and to photograph it when the time finally came. I was absolutely thrilled to do both!! It’s so fun to photograph a couple at the very beginning of their engagement all the way up wedding day and beyond.
I was so happy Jackson reached out when he did because we are getting close to one of the most popular times of the year for marriage proposals.
There are two times through out the year that your Instagram feed is more likely to be full of “I said yes!” And “pop the champagne I’m changing my last name!” posts.
The holidays❄️; between November and the new year, and a few spread out till Valentine’s Day.
A great way to celebrate with the whole family!
SUMMER time☀️; June through August. There’s more time in the day, people are naturally more relaxed and happy.
With temperatures rising and the rain finally leaving the forecast we are getting closer to summer with each day.
Jackson planned his proposal at the WWI memorial in Kansas City. Kansas City has so many beautiful places to propose including; The Nelson Atkins Museum of Art, Loose Park Rose Garden, Union Station, Crown Center, or The Plaza.

You have found the person you know you want to spend the rest of your life with and be married to! You’ve picked out the ring, now what?! Don’t worry, I have created this super awesome blog post on Planning the Perfect Proposal in 5 easy steps to help!
First, Making sure you both are on the same page and are ready to take this next step in the relationship is key. Once you’re sure you’re both ready find a time that feels right- don’t rush the proposal.
If you have a place that is sentimental or meaningful to your relationship, go there. If not then choose somewhere pretty- a garden, a rooftop, a city landmark. Stumped for ideas? I can help with that too!
This is going to be one of the most special moments of your lives together, hire a professional to capture it. Photos of this once in a lifetime event are priceless!
Keep this moment private (unless your S.O. has always wanted a public proposal and trust me they will have mentioned it if they do haha!). Even if their picking up on hints don’t spill all the details!
The answer was yes! So for an extra awesome spin, have family and friends in another room or at the next location for a second surprise! Engagement parties are so much fun!
Natalie & Garrett, our proposal couple in this post:
Garrett and Natalie met 3 years ago when they both worked at the same law office. Natalie and I’s friendship goes way back to college, ever since we were in the same sorority! Garrett knew how much Natalie loved my photography so when we starting planning their proposal he reached out to make sure I could be there for it!
He asked me for tips and ideas on locations he was considering, and decided on the rooftop bar because it would be more private and it had such an amazing view. And so, on Friday December 13th, Garrett graduated from college. After the ceremony he asked Natalie to go get a drink with him by themselves before they would meet their families for dinner.
Haha Natalie was so confused as to why they were going by themselves but she agreed to go anyway. When they got up to the roof Garrett was super nervous and excited. As they were taking in the view Garrett held Natalie’s hands. He told her how much he loved her, and got down on one knee. She said YES! Both of their families then came outside to surprise Natalie and celebrate!
