Chris emailed me to inquire about his secret proposal to Emily at the WWI Memorial, & I knew it was going to be a beautiful event right away. He had every detail planned out!
So, the WWI Memorial & Museum here in Kansas City, looks out over the city and created the perfect backdrop for their proposal. Emily was SO excited, and of course immediately said YES!!
But the surprises weren’t over there! After we took some photos of the new fiancés together right after the proposal, we walked down the stairs and Emily’s parents were waiting for them on the lower level to congratulate them!! Nothing better than having your loved ones bring all the hype for your big days.
Getting engaged is such a fun time in life, and I feel so privileged to have captured this special time for Emily & Chris.
I love shooting at the WWI Memorial for proposals. It has such pretty views for your photos. You can see another proposal I captured there HERE.
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.
