Meghan + Scott | a warm and cozy Liberty Missouri engagement session

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY! Well, the title of this post might be a bit too positive. 🙂 Meghan and Scott met me at my studio in Liberty, Missouri last Friday for their engagement session. Those of you who live in the Kansas City area probably know how frigid last Friday was. If you don’t, well let me remind you: it was frigid. We kicked off the session around the downtown square (right out the front door of my studio!) – it was cold but at least the buildings, at times, helped block the wind. Then, after a quick change of clothes at the studio, we walked the short half block to the JEM for some fun shots in this wonderful bar. If you haven’t been to the JEM, you are missing out (I’m headed there Friday, in fact, to see Mary Bridget Davies!) I digress though – we ordered a round of drinks, shot around the place a bit – long enough to thaw out! The waitstaff was wonderfully accommodating (so thank you guys!!) – and I even overheard the handful of other late-afternoon patrons comment on how adorable these two were. 🙂 We left just as the mad Friday happy  hour rush started filing in – back to the studio to change and off to nearby Stocksdale Park to, well, freeze. There was NOTHING blocking that wind, folks. My car’s thermometer read 19 degrees and when we finished, my phone said the windchill was -1. MAD PROPS to these two for sticking it out for some incredible sunset shots.

Why did we shoot in this weather you say? Well, their originally scheduled date was rained out, and these two were moving to Colorado for school for the next few months the very next morning! I’m glad they stuck it out and I’m glad we sought refuge in the JEM as I love how candid and fun and DIFFERENT the session turned out. (and to those of you still planning your engagement sessions: there are a LOT of different and fun/unique ideas for sessions – and neat locations that are off the beaten path and usual list of popular engagement spots…be different! 😉 ) You’ll see these two back on the blog in September when they get married!
