Lauren + Nick: Kansas City Engagement Photography

I felt bad for Lauren and Nick. REALLY bad. They booked their July 2010 wedding with me a few weeks back, and were admittedly behind on getting save-the-dates out; they wanted to get their engagement shoot in ASAP so they could select a photo to put on the save-the-dates. Mother Nature had other ideas. It snowed. Then it snowed some more. In about two weeks’ time, Kansas City got nearly the city’s average snowfall for the SEASON. Christmas was a mess; blizzard warnings. Nick was stuck in Omaha. We had to reschedule, and reschedule again. Finally, we set our sights on New Year’s Day or New Year’s Eve. Take your pick; it was forecast to be equally frigid both days. Lauren selected New Year’s Eve, and I’m glad she did as it’s kind of cloudy and looks even COLDER out today. 

We made the best of it. Sure, it was freezing cold. We tried to mix up indoor shooting with outdoor to keep feeling in our fingers – well, it’s hard for ME to keep feeling in my fingers when I constantly have to take gloves off to move around lighting. I think it was a grand total of 17 degrees during our shoot. Nevertheless, this is destined to become one of my favorite sessions, I think. I am looking VERY MUCH forward to their wedding at the Sawyer Room, a venue I have always wanted to shoot and never have!

Here’s to a GREAT 2010!!
