Nick + Jessie: married | Wea, Kansas and the Sawyer Room, Kansas City

Nick and Jessie’s story of how they got engaged and how I came to be their wedding photographer is definitely the most unique story of the year. You see, I like to fly airplanes. I like to teach people how to fly airplanes, and I also during the holidays do a few Plaza scenic flights for couples out of my flight school, ATD Flight Systems. Nick called me to schedule a Plaza flight last year and told me that it would be a proposal flight. Of course, these are my favorite Plaza flights 😉 and I anxiously awaited their flight hoping for good weather and no reschedules. The weather WAS good, Nick DID propose to Jessie, and then next thing I know, I’m meeting them to discuss shooting their wedding!

So obviously I had a fun connection with the two – I mean, how many wedding photographers are present at the moment their couples actually GET engaged! 🙂

We had cool but sunny weather for Nick and Jessie’s wedding day, which started off in tiny Wea, Kansas near the Miami/Johnson county line at Queen of the Holy Rosary. After the ceremony, we headed on to Liberty Memorial for some sunset shots and after a brief stop at QuikTrip (yes, really!) we headed to the Crossroads Art District for some night shots. We finished off the night at the Sawyer Room downtown which is one of my absolute favorite venues. Second shooter extraordinaire Mike Tsai helped me with this one, and a few of the shots below are his!

We will start this one off with the shot that started it all! This is last holiday season at the Kansas City downtown airport, at the end of our flight and just minutes after Nick popped the question. 🙂
