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!
Kansas City Engagement Session
Couples Photos in Kansas City
There were joggers running up an down the steps to McCormick and Schmick’s when Noorah and Brett arrived, Marco and I were running a little late due to the couch riding in my back seat. I couldn’t see very well with the traffic and was driving slower than usual, but we made it only 5 minutes late and that is totally on time according to most of my college professors whose clocks always seem to run just a little behind. The last runner cleared the Spanish tiled steps and we all laughed as we described our mornings so far, it was only 8:30am. By 9 the Plaza streets were screaming with traffic but that didn’t stop my creativity. When I was asked to take photos at The Plaza I knew I had to do something unique, something unexpected. Honestly my competitive nature came out as Noorah explained that her friend recommended the place. Yes the steps are pretty. They’re Spanish, but they are located in such a place that everyone and their dog has had pictures taken there, including Noorah’s friend. I for one want to be different. And tried really hard to get Noorah not to take photos by the blue tiled stares. But when Noorah said she had this perfect dress, my heart melted. Then she said, “you will do it better than everyone else, that is why I hired you.” So…. I was determined now to photograph those blue tiled stairs like no one else, creating art just for this lovely couple. .
Now I have conquered the stairs. YES!!!!! Erin-1 : Plaza-0.
Next I needed to get the feeling of the Plaza, the city, the shopping, some architecture. Now I am at a crossroads, I still have to out do every Plaza photo I have ever seen. Here comes the couch! Marco helped me put a couch in the middle of a median for Brett and Noorah. One of the hardest things I have ever done with an engagement session. The noise was crazy and I was shooting from the median across from them so there were cars driving in-between us. But they loved it and I made a statement at the Plaza and created something original in a very un-original over shot location! Erin-2 : Plaza-0!
Before we were done with the session we made one more stop. The city street! And while were were there someone drove by and yelled out their car “WOOHOO – GO PHOTOS EDGE!!!” It made my day. Noorah and Brett cracked up laughing and I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this session would go down in the history books as the hardest most complicated, crazy AWESOME engagement session ever!!!! Huge Thank you to Noorah and Brett for pushing me to be better, pushing me to be creative, and trusting me to create something unique for them! Love it!!! Please Enjoy!
Kansas City Engagement
Each couple is different, every moment unique to them. From how they fit together to how they relax with laughter. Kristen and Garrett look amazing interacting with each other. I set the stage and they get to interact, the process creates some amazing photojournalism and moments that make lasting memories. We don’t just document love and a portrait of a couple. Sure we do that, but we go above that and actually make taking the photos a great time. It should be! Here are Kristen and Garrett’s Engagement session with Save the Date cards to them in rival team T-shirts playing in a park. I know Kristen and Garrett will be playing catch in a park someday soon. Enjoy!
