 A Sweet Kansas City Engagement Session

From the moment Mike and Jillian stepped out of their car laughing and smiling with each other, I knew this engagement session would be anything but boring.  My excitement grew when I saw that the color of Jillian’s dress actually matched the location I had picked out for this fun loving couple!  As we began the session one thing became extremely apparent about Jillian and Mike: they are each other’s favorite person in this world.  When they look at each other their smiles get bigger, and when they touch the atmosphere around them seems to get brighter.  Soon they even had me smiling behind the camera.

 

Jillian and Mike, I am looking forward to capturing more moments of fun and affection during your Kansas City wedding, and to see your smiles light the room as you become man and wife. For now, enjoy these fun engagement photos, I certainly enjoyed creating them!!

Urban Studio Engagement Session

Taking me by surprise, Marco dipped Asona in our studio for a “fun shot”, I was thrown off because my Marco (Marco Polo) and I had taught ballroom dancing many years ago and only the pros dip like Asona and her loving man Marco. Yep 2 Marco’s here! Another wonderful thing Asona and I have in common. Our love for flurly (yes a made up word for dress that spin) dresses, our love for dance, and to top it off the love of a man named Marco. Yes we were on the right track. The hour seemed to fly by and the images were sweet, heartfelt, and fun!

To get to know this lovely couple here is a snip it from them:

How We Met

We met in college, at WashU, near the beginning of  Marco’s senior year and Asona’s junior year.  On that special day that we’re both so thankful for, Asona and her friends went to a party at the Loop Lofts thrown by Marco’s friends and next door neighbors.

As it turned out, we had known a lot of the same people throughout most of our time at WashU, had somehow never gotten to know each other.  Asona really didn’t feel like going out that night, but boy is Marco happy that she did.
He saw his beautiful future co-exister from the across room, sitting on the couch with an open seat next to her, and went over to introduce himself. 

The conversation flowed easily right from the start as they started finding out more about each other, and laughing and enjoying each other’s company.  The party got broken up by the police pretty early on, but they both remember being almost unaware of everything else going on around them, just sitting on that couch, focused on each other, before and after everyone else left.

By the end of the night they had discussed religion and politics, views on family and money – all of the things that you’re not supposed to talk about on a first date – with plenty of laughs, and smiles and heart-flutters mixed in.
Marco cooked dinner for her a few days later, they ran into each other several times in the next few days – some by chance, some not – and didn’t spend another day apart until Thanksgiving. 

The rest is history. ~Asona & Marco

Enjoy these beautiful Engagement Photos!

West Bottoms Urban Engagement Session | Sean + MiToya

A Polished Urban Engagement Session

West Bottoms Urban Engagement Session

These two are cute as can be. We rocked out a wonderful West Bottoms urban engagement session. Even though it was urban it was still refined. From fun loving, often poised, to very giggly.

Someone once told me that my urban sessions are unique because they remain polished and aren’t grungy. I love that.  Polished is a great way to describe the Photos Edge style.  And polished one word I would use to for Sean and MiToya.  This hour seemed to fly by. I had a blast photographing every minute of it.  We looked for the best reflective light I could find and then they simply got to be themselves, with a little guidance from me to make sure everything looked perfect. The way they wanted it.  Everyone needs a little guidance, that’s why we are here.  To help you look good being in love!  Please enjoy this session!

Dancing in the Streets: Ryan + Kayla

I think we had taken 3 photos when Ryan Kissed Kayla’s hand and then celebrated with a fist pump in the air.  We weren’t just taking pictures we were celebrating their love, their future, and this moment.  I could have photographed them for hours, they were a joy to work with.  Every moment Kayla would smile a little bigger or laugh a little harder.  And with each passing moment Marco and I realized we were making new friends.  Sometime in the near future drinks are on the way, as promised in a phone conversation.  Where I was give some of the hardest questions ever.  I was about to walk into a meeting when Ryan became the ultimate salesman and turned the marketing table on me, I had 15min to sell myself and my company.   I love a good challenge especially from someone who not only knows their stuff but really respected our business.  It didn’t feel like 20 questions nor was I in a job interview. Ryan knew I had a job and he wanted to understand what that job was.  In the end I was sooo excited and completely overjoyed because I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I could fulfill what they wanted.  I could capture them, their love, the emotional tears, the over joyed friends.  We capture moments. Kayla and Ryan have so many already, I can’t wait for their day!  Enjoy!

Engagement Photography | Ben + Jamie

Engagement Photography

Ben constantly smiled at Jami and she would smile right back.  Their favorite photos were the shots of them being themselves, showing off their love and honestly, friendship.  They never spoke about friendship but I could see it, they were best friends and on their wedding day Ben and Jamie will say I do forever to their best friend.  They laugh hard like friends,  joke like friends, but they smile like they are in love.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding next year filled with joy and laughter just like their engagement session.

The color blows me away, I love it!  Jami’s sense of style makes me giggle, it is just like mine.  When Ben and Jami first walked into our studio Ben was wearing something that looked strangely familiar and as we talked about their wedding we got side tracked and started talking about clothes.  I asked Jami where she got her shirt. “Either Anthropology or Nordstrom?”  With hesitation, I may in fact be wrong. Jami smiled, sat up a little more and said Nordstrom.  We talked about how that is probably my favorite store, hers too. And then I asked where Ben had gotten his shorts, he laughed and said Jamie bought them.  I laughed because Marco has the same pair that I had gotten him.  We wrapped up the conversation on an amazing high note of shared shopping styles and were on our way towards photographing a wonderful couple.  To no surprise I would wear everything Jamie has on in these photos.  It was great styling and I had perfect locations to show them off. The personality and clothes that is. 🙂  Enjoy!
