Daniella and Jack had the best Westbottoms Summer engagement session last year in Kansas City! The Westbottoms use to be a place for manufactured warehouses and is now all historic buildings! They have antique stores, lofts, studio spaces and even a few haunted houses in the fall!
As you can see it also makes a great space for an engagement shoot!
Daniella and Jack brought two outfits for the shoot that we picked out to compliment the spaces we were shooting at! The first spot was a huge underpass that even had string lights underneath! The whole space was both modern and industrial.
We then went to a brown stone building with a giant blue garage door! I love finding hidden gems in the most unexpected places!! And then we ended the shoot with some greenery! It was so fun just walking around and chatting with the two of them as we went from spot to spot! The Westbottoms Summer engagement sessions are one of my new favorites!
Thanks Daniella and Jack for hanging with me that evening!
I had the best summer couples session with Madison & Jake last year! I’ve said this before, but I think parking garages are one of the most underrated session locations out there! Especially living in a big city!
You’re used to everything all shoved together and buildings being so close and tons and tons of people. Which don’t get me wrong can also be the best sessions! But if you need a bit of space…the top floor of a parking garage can usually give you that!
If you don’t have access to a park or are looking for city vibes with some space, let’s head to the closest garage and create some magic!
I had the sweetest afternoon with Madison and Jake! They are such good company to have and we laughed so much throughout this summer couples session! Madison wore a cute long sleeve flowy top with some blue jeans and a pair of nude heels! Jake also wore a pair of dark jeans with a short sleeve stripped shirt and some nike high tops!
Even with a small space to work with we were able to get a variety of shot for the two of them! This evening was so fun and it was a privilege shooting this session for Madison and Jake! Wish you two nothing but the best!
I met with Madisen and Jordan for a Shawnee Mission Park engagement session and a beautiful warm day! We were able to move around multiple locations and ended the shoot with a champagne bottle pop!
Oh did I mention the wild flower field!?!? Take a look for yourself – it’s GORGEOUS!
The wild flowers at Shawnee Mission Park make for such a fun photo spot, they love to bloom in late May and early June but they don’t last long!
Madisen wore a white mini dress and Jordan wore a white button up long sleeve with blue jeans. It was the perfect dressy-mixed-with-casual attire for them to be comfortable but still dress up for this fun shoot!
Engagement shoots where we get to adventure around so many different backdrops are so much fun!! During this shoot we had everything from covered locations to full sunset locations to a nice blue hour. And If you guys have read some of my recent blogs you’ll know I love Shawnee Mission Park engagement sessions!
Thank you Madisen and Jordan for spending the evening with me! You guys are a joy to be around and are so kind and thoughtful! I can’t wait for your amazing wedding day Spring 2022 we will definitely have a blast.
I met with Ariel for a Fall Senior Session at Shawnee Mission Park right outside of Kansas City! We were able to sneak in four outfits for this session! I honestly love when my seniors want to incorporate their own style in a variety of ways during the time we spend together shooting!
At Shawnee Mission Park we started underneath the trees where the perfect amount of leaves had fallen and given Ariel the best area to work in! Her first outfit was dressy but comfortable! I love that it found that perfect sweet spot between trendy and timeless. That white and denim combo is a fav.
But we couldn’t leave this Fall Senior session without adding in a bit of spice to her outfits! Check out that INSANE red dress she brought!! She brought the fire to add the perfect amount of flare to this session! I love all my seniors that come to me for their sessions! It’s such an exciting time in their lives, and it’s fun to document that. We laugh, joke around and just have the best time! It makes me so grateful to be a Kansas Senior Photographer!!
Thank you Ariel for the best evening!!
I met with Bailey & Chris at The Nelson Atkins Museum of arts for their engagement session! What a beautiful sunny night we had together! We used a variety of the museum’s grounds for each part of their session, which I love to do because it adds variety to their final gallery.
From the big green lawn, to the gorgeous columns, and the cute summer trees, the opportunities for great photos are endless.
Luckily, The Nelson Atkins museum has a large variety on their grounds to work with. Honestly, anywhere with Bailey & Chris would have worked though. They literally love each other so much and any place would have been able to highlight that.
They actually brought little mementos from their relationship. When they dated long distance they each drew the other one a heart and both kept it, which we used during their session! Chris also cross stitched that little embroidery piece for Bailey too!
It’s always such an honor getting to hear my couples love stories. Each relationship is different and it’s my job to capture the true nature of your connection authentically.
They are such sweet and kind people, and spending that evening with the two of them was so wonderful!
Thanks Bailey and Chris for picking me to shoot your engagement!!
Head to my contact page to set up your session today 🙂
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!
Shawnee Mission Park is one of my favorite places in the city if you’re wanting those beautiful natural vibes at your engagement session.
Kayla & Austin told me they wanted golden hour photos, at a place they could bring their pups. And they love the outdoors, so we opted for Shawnee Mission Park. I’ve shot here a few times before, but it’s always fresh & new with each couple.
We wandered around the park taking photos together. These two are so full of joy! So much laughter at this session. We shot all over the park, and then they did a quick outfit change before we moved out to the wide open field for the last bit of golden hour.
Kayla & Austin, thank you so much for choosing me to capture your engagement session! I really enjoyed shooting with you two!!
