Kelsey + Dean | Shawnee Mission Park and Country Club Plaza engagement

May 3rd, 2011

Kelsey seriously has the MOST infectious smile and laugh I’ve ever seen. I mean, look at her! She is SO adorable. And SO obviously enjoying every minute of her engagement session with Dean – which we shot last Friday morning at Shawnee Mission Park followed by a brief round at the Plaza – including the walk along Brush Creek, where she and Dean were engaged. As you can also see, light is QUITE gorgeous in the morning, so ladies and gents, keep morning sessions as an option as things heat up this summer (it’s usually much cooler than evening)! In Kelsey and Dean’s case, we switched to a morning session to avoid forecast 40mph wind gusts that afternoon. (and boy was the forecast right – but we had gorgeous light breeze for the morning!) Guys, I’m excited to travel to Hutchinson to shoot your wedding this summer! 🙂

Rebecca and Alex: Shawnee Mission Park Engagement Photography

February 10th, 2011

Rebecca and Alex were the second snowy engagement session I shot just a few hours after Jen and Jeremy’s session below. We went country for this one, though, and shot at Shawnee Mission Park. I warned these two the snow would be deep in spots (I went up to my knees in snow numerous times!), […]

 

Rebecca and Alex were the second snowy engagement session I shot just a few hours after Jen and Jeremy’s session below. We went country for this one, though, and shot at Shawnee Mission Park. I warned these two the snow would be deep in spots (I went up to my knees in snow numerous times!), but they were actually excited about it – and I found out why. Alex, a South Carolina native, took his FIRST EVER sledding trip down a hill during our shoot! Thank you to the kind strangers who lent us the toboggan for a few minutes. I thought it would make for a great shot (which it did!), but I had no idea Alex had never been sledding!

We continued to shoot until everyone was frozen; and I realized two things: a) these two have one heckuva connection and b) I don’t know why more of my couples don’t want to shoot during the winter. Yes, it’s cold, but when else do you get landscapes like THIS?

We broke the ice with the aforementioned sledding (no pun intended; at the bottom of the sledding hill was a frozen pond!)

Yes, another snowball fight erupted (what would you expect?) – as well as a game of football that turned into a full-on tackle by Rebecca (for brevity’s sake, you’ll have to trust me on that one, the shots are hilarious!)

Carly + Chad: engaged | Shawnee Mission Park

November 10th, 2010

Carly and Chad have so much love and laughter going on between them, they are SO easy to shoot. They required little to no direction – just pure interaction. I LOVED working with them!! And at one of my absolute favorite spots in town for engagement sessions – Shawnee Mission Park. I have a feeling […]

 

Carly and Chad have so much love and laughter going on between them, they are SO easy to shoot. They required little to no direction – just pure interaction. I LOVED working with them!! And at one of my absolute favorite spots in town for engagement sessions – Shawnee Mission Park. I have a feeling (just a hunch!) that I’m going to love working with them again for their wedding – on what will undoubtedly be one of the most popular wedding dates of 2011, 9-10-11!

Nancy and Jeff: engaged | Shawnee Mission Park

October 8th, 2010

I was admittedly a bit nervous about this session – after all, Nancy is a pro photographer herself! Nancy and Jeff, mom Liz, and Dude and Cash and I headed out to explore the vast expanses of Shawnee Mission Park Wednesday night at sunset – and I’d like to think we found some fanTASTIC places […]

Nancy and Jeff, mom Liz, and Dude and Cash and I headed out to explore the vast expanses of Shawnee Mission Park Wednesday night at sunset – and I’d like to think we found some fanTASTIC places to shoot! (of course Nancy had it all planned out, and even brought some fantastic props!)

You will see more of these two when I shoot their wedding in TWO WEEKS!!

Emilie and Terrol: engaged | Shawnee Mission Park

June 22nd, 2010

Emilie and Terrol had it going on in their session. What a connection these two had. I had to do very little directing and a LOT of shooting. They are naturals in front of the camera! We met last Thursday evening at Shawnee Mission Park for their engagement session – the two wanted a more […]

 

Emilie and Terrol had it going on in their session. What a connection these two had. I had to do very little directing and a LOT of shooting. They are naturals in front of the camera! We met last Thursday evening at Shawnee Mission Park for their engagement session – the two wanted a more country setting, and I tried to find a location that wasn’t too far for them since they were coming from Lawrence. I shot Candace and Tim’s session there a few weeks earlier, and knew it was huge, so we’d have lots of new places to explore, which we did!

I’m very much looking forward to shooting your guys’ wedding in December!
