Megan and Jeff: Kansas City Engagement Photography

I always encourage couples to do an engagement session with me if I’m shooting their wedding, and it’s because it “breaks in” the photographer-client relationship. Call it a dry run, if you will. You get the uncomfortable stiffness in front of the camera out of the way, and you get to know me and how I work. Come wedding day, me being all up in your face with my camera is old hat. (well, maybe not IN your face, but….) Well, I got to know Megan and Jeff a leeetle TOO well Saturday as when we were shooting at Union Station towards the end of the shoot, I fell down the stairs. I fell DOWN THE STAIRS. In my hurry to get a new memory card, or maybe another lens…I don’t even remember, I just remember completely missing a step with my foot and going oh *@!*&$ before I even started going down because I knew what was coming. I fell down 3 or 4 steps, and ALL that stopped me was Megan and Jeff’s legs. With my 5D Mark II in my hands. Luckily, the camera is just fine and I’m a little stiff but (hopefully? tomorrow is the 2nd day after!) ok.

But that’s just a small part of the day. It was a decent day – cloudy but still and at least not frigid, and we had fun. We got coffee, we visited, and we shot like crazy. Mike Tsai (of 4Honor Photography) who will be second-shooting for me some this year, joined in for a while to try a lens as well. We went all over the Crossroads District and Union Station, and here are the results.

Thanks to good friend Lori Fetterling for helping with lighting! Megan and Jeff, I am very much looking forward to shooting your wedding next January, you all are a blast!
