Lauren + Will | Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and Country Club Plaza engagement

July 20th, 2011

Lauren and Will got the one “cool” day last week for their session (but not before rescheduling from a 100 degree day). 85 was the high last Wednesday, which admittedly seems COOL. The humidity was still quite high though – and we ended up nice and sweaty, despite temps almost 15 degrees less than what […]

 

Lauren and Will got the one “cool” day last week for their session (but not before rescheduling from a 100 degree day). 85 was the high last Wednesday, which admittedly seems COOL. The humidity was still quite high though – and we ended up nice and sweaty, despite temps almost 15 degrees less than what seems to be the average lately. Sure enough, my shoot schedule has been pretty wide open this month – the shoots I have had scheduled have almost all pushed back into August hoping for cooler weather. Midsummer here can almost seem like winter – but it’s the calm before the storm as fall is already starting to schedule in! Lauren and Will have got that natural connection – the one I love, as photographer, to shoot – as they required little to no directing. I found they started “ad libbing” pretty early on in the session – I LOVE couples who are this comfortable in front of the camera as it not only makes my job easy, but the shots look natural and authentic. These two are fairly recent transplants to Kansas City, and are planning a New Year’s Eve wedding in Columbia. Congrats and best wishes you two!

Erin + Shawn | an “almost married!” Country Club Plaza and Loose Park engagement session

June 7th, 2011

Erin and Shawn get married in two and a half WEEKS. Yes, you heard that right! Two and a half weeks! We had some weather issues with their engagement session, and finally had to go ahead yesterday, what with nearly 100 degree temps and all. These two were not only troopers, but they are frickin’ […]

 

Erin and Shawn get married in two and a half WEEKS. Yes, you heard that right! Two and a half weeks! We had some weather issues with their engagement session, and finally had to go ahead yesterday, what with nearly 100 degree temps and all. These two were not only troopers, but they are frickin’ ADORABLE. I cannot wait to shoot their wedding at the end of this month! Most guys would be OVER a session with that kind of heat, but Shawn stuck in there and was fantastic! We made sure to take advantage of water, towels, and Starbucks’ air conditioning (plus a quick stop at White House | Black Market for Erin to get some flip flops for walkin’ – I mean, look at those heels she has on!) The Plaza was a veritable blast furnace – but Loose Park with its grass and lack of pavement was significantly cooler for us to finish the session. Hey, at least the light was gorgeous!! See you all in just a couple short weeks!! 🙂

Erin and Shawn exchanged numbers at the Granfalloon. 🙂 The rest is history!

Katie and Jason: engaged | Country Club Plaza

Katie and Jason wanted to start bright and early last Friday morning for their engagement session on the Plaza and at Loose Park, so we had some fantastic light to work with. I LOVE this couple! So personable and look at those smiles! Katie’s laugh is just infectious. They are one of those couples that […]

 

Katie and Jason wanted to start bright and early last Friday morning for their engagement session on the Plaza and at Loose Park, so we had some fantastic light to work with. I LOVE this couple! So personable and look at those smiles! Katie’s laugh is just infectious. They are one of those couples that just have a good natural connection – which makes them very easy to shoot. I will NOT say the same, however, about their dog Lucy – who is JUST like her red-headed namesake. She decided she didn’t like the sound of my shutter and would turn her head away from me! Little booger. 😉 We did get some super cute shots of her nonetheless – I credit my time shooting horses with being super quick on the trigger finger the few times she gave me her full attention! You’ll also notice on the last shot that Katie and Jason’s household is definitely a house divided – and to save them grief, I will not post the shots of them wearing each other’s school’s shirts. 😉

VERY much looking forward to working with these two on their wedding day in November!
