Couples | A Subtly Mid Century, Minimalist Engagement

I’m not a studio photographer. I like a lot a of space, find lack of control of light and environment challenging and enticing, and really like to wander. However, when Anna and Mike requested we have their engagement session indoor- which I didn’t blame them, it was one of the hottest weeks of the year- I was simply out of interior spots that I hadn’t shot in a zillion times before. They wanted a nostalgic, mid century look. While I would’ve loved to have found a moody ranch style, complete with paneled walls and orange counter tops I simply did not have one at my disposal. Instead, I did something very out of character, and booked Crossroads Studio for the occasion.

The simple, clean space worked perfectly for the subtle vintage look, making the overall setting take a backseat and bringing forth my use of prisms, light flairs, grainy overlays, and of course, the couple’s love and affection. Anna and Mike’s classic style matched the space and mood of the shoot perfectly. I was so happy with how willing to play around these two were, and we finished in record time. I’m so excited for their wedding next June, and to get the opportunity to work with these two once more.

Couples | Modern Industrial Meets 19th Century Architecture for this Urban Engagement

When I first met with Shelby I could tell we had very similar struggles finding the right vendors to hire for our wedding days. She and Dylan looked at tons of photographers but none were quite the right fit. I’m glad they found me because they are the exact type of couple I aim to represent.

There’s this overarching vision of weddings that the world tries to sell you; one of romance and white dresses. What about the rest of us? The long term partners, the parents, the rebels, the anti-brides, the enthusiastically non-traditional, and everyone else in between? These two didn’t seem to buy into the bs which super resonated with me. Long term partners and parents, these two spoke about their wedding in less serious terms. Obviously planning a beautiful day is a top priority, but they seemed to have a realistic vision and good senses of humor - two things anyone planning a wedding needs.

For their engagement shoot we decided on downtown Kansas City. They had originally wanted to get married downtown but opted for a more ideal space outside of the city, so it seemed only natural to shoot here first. I wanted to find spaces downtown that brought modern industry forward in an area predominately designed in the late 19th century. Spaces where glass stairwells and parking garages are interspersed between ornate 19th century doorways, fountains, and storefronts. Much like their approach to their own wedding, these spaces show the progress and adaptations made to old methods and traditions, yet still embrace their beauty and importance. It was one of my favorite engagement shoots of the summer.

Couples | A Modern at Home Engagement Session

Over the last 9 months these two have become quite comfortable in front of my camera, along with their sweet dog, Bandit. I first met them last winter at their snowy engagement session in Nebraska. They were originally planing to come to Kansas City for part two, but my availability coincided with closing on their brand new home! I jumped at the opportunity to head up to Omaha for the day to capture them in their new place in all it’s sparse, modern glory. Also, can we talk about kitchen goals?!

Couples | A Rustic Engagement with Modern-Boho Vibes

I’ve been obsessed with Hodge Park for awhile now. Historic towns are kind of my thing and there are so many in the area. So naturally, I was pretty stoked when Laura & Bryan were into the idea of having their engagement photos shot here. I suggested this location because it lends a hand to their wedding venue; Paradise Park in Oregon, MO. I’m a big fan of engagement shoots and wedding days playing off each other, whether that be by location, activity, or through some other key factor. I think it’s important to create a consistent look throughout both albums without getting too similar.

Below are a few of my favorites from this very rare nice day when it was both sunny and not sweltering outside!

Couples | A Modern, Urban Engagement with Rustic Charm

I had been looking forward to this engagement session for awhile. Melanie works in vintage resale and Geoffrey works for the railroad, so naturally The Westbottoms was the perfect setting for this pair. Originally, hoping to shoot their engagements in Colorado, they ended up opting to stay close to home but The Campground’s rustic setting ended up bringing a bit of that outdoor charm to their images regardless.

I can’t say enough good things about this shoot. These guys were so easy and fun to work with. We started at The Campground, wandered around the warehouses, and ended up stopping at The Ship for a quick drink and dessert. I loved how Melanie obviously appreciated my more serious, wide shots, and Geoffrey brought the silliness and goofiness that every engagement shoot should include. I am so pumped to shoot their at home wedding this fall in gorgeous Valentine.
