Couples Portraits and Engagement Sessions

Couples portraits in a slideshow

 

I had to share this couple’s portraits and engagement session today. I couldn’t just let this slideshow sit on my computer, it had to be shared with the world. Every couple gets to view a slideshow of their images when they come in to proof their engagement session, and it’s so much fun!

What most people don’t know is that I actually struggle with finding the right song for each couple.  It’s something I take so much time doing.  I know, I know, that it shouldn’t be something that takes a lot time. But we as photographers don’t get to just pick a popular song and plug it in. No. What many don’t know is that it’s against the law to play just any song.  To avoid the music copyright lawyers from knocking loudly on our doors, we buy our music with special licensing. Triple scoop music is the best place to purchase great music to use as a business. I spend hours listening to their music and finding the ideal song. “Anything for you” by Fisher is one of my favorites, it’s perfect for this wonderful couple.

Sindhu and Anton stole my heart. Sindhu has this laughter that is contagious. She laughs with her whole body when she is truly happy.  It’s big and honest.  Anton is her rock, her safe place, I understand because Marco is mine. I see so much of our relationship in them.  It’s beautiful the way Anton loves her, you can see it in the smallest of glances. And she adores him. This couple falls together. Take a look at their very real love.  I hope you get the feels like I did.

She held my coffee gently as I took a photo that was destined for Pinterest. A perfect Mocha and a lovely heart shaped design carefully crafted. Moments later Marco brought two cups of coffee and cream for Kelsey and Brian to have. I stood there outside of Quay coffee in the River Market of Kansas City, with camera in hand photographing them in between delicious sips. We chatted about artists, college, costume shops, and our favorite café which will always be 3 fools. Brian, our soon be groom, was a founding member and one of the 3 fools. Needless to say Brian is an excellent chef.

This Kansas City Engagement session started out chill and fun. I wanted Kelsey and Brian, who had come down from Minneapolis, to be themselves. We relaxed with a more lifestyle engagement session, focusing on genuine smiles and creating great moments. Marco and I were happy to include their pup.

As we were wrapping up our coffee photo shoot, we giggled at how hipster this all was. I chose my favorite coffee shop and they happened to match the sailor theme. It was perfect without anyone trying too hard. The truth is, this couple was just being themselves. These are the people that hipsters try to become. Years from now Kelsey and Brian will still be artistic and cool and chill in all the right ways.

Their success blows me away. I love watching artist succeed! Kelsey, who is designing her own wedding gown, has always left me in awe with her creations. She is a fantastic designer and I can’t wait for their wedding this weekend!

Congratulations! Marco and I are excited!!!

Stunning Kansas City Engagement Session | Photos Edge

Jose + Stephanie a beautiful engagement

The wind whipped through Liberty Memorial and the hustle-bustle of tourists and guests made it seem like we weren’t in the midwest.  It felt larger than that.  This Saturday reminded me of New York in the middle of a Tuesday afternoon. Streets filled with people, the sound loud yet muffled, not quite as bold as rush hour, but busy.  I love the busy.  It makes me feel like life is happening, a reminder that we are not alone.  After turning the corner our smiles crossed paths, the two best dressed people there ready for their photo shoot.  The greeting quickly turned to conversation as we began heading over to one of my favorite areas at the Liberty Memorial. Every time we hang out or talk it’s like getting together with old friends, we just pick up where we left off. I love the variety in this session. And the clothing choices… let’s just say the two looked like they walked right out of a magazine.  With great class, a touch of traditional, simple romantic moments, to bold gestures, and fun dance moves; this session is not only well rounded and artistic but it captures Jose and Stephanie’s love for each other and life. Please enjoy!

Engagement Photo Preview: Stephanie & Jose

I was culling this lovely engagement session today and I couldn’t help but post a preview for Stephanie and Jose.  There are so many photos that are my favorites I can’t choose.  But I love this image because for a few seconds I was allowed to photograph the two of them in their bubble. I know, cheesy bubble talk, but that is how I roll.

Please enjoy this sweet romantic Kansas City Engagement photo.

It was sweet every time they looked at Austin.  She would smile right back at Randi and Matt and then once more she would look right at me.  It was exciting to see this little family come together, not only for an engagement session but to celebrate their lives in a family portrait.  The wedding isn’t far off from being done.  But before I show off this once in a lifetime, to die for wedding.  I thought that I should share the really adorable family portrait / Engagement session we had taken.  It is amazing how much of an impact family portraits have in a home.  Especially to kids, it makes them feel special.  Even though Austin will not remember this day, she will grow up looking at the photos knowing she was loved.  Everyone deserves to feel special.

If you are in need of some family photos we would be happy to help pull your family together and capture wonderful moments for you.
