Who would ever guess we could do an outdoor engagement shoot a week before Christmas in Missouri?? Ashley and Kevin are from Iowa and were planning to be in Kansas City one weekend in December for a Chiefs game, so we decided to get their engagements done while they were here. I was really worried about weather and thinking we would either be facing bitter cold or snow or both. Amazingly enough, the temps that day were great and we got some awesome photos! I can't wait until Ashley and Kevin's wedding this summer!

When I discussed their engagement session with Janelle and Johntell, they immediately knew exactly where they wanted to go. First, the high school where they met and then to the 18th and Vine district. I had always thought 18th and Vine would make a great backdrop and I was right! What a great spot! We scheduled the shoot about a week before Christmas and I was nervous about the weather to say the least. I watched the forecast daily and figured we might end up with snowy engagement photos. Mother Nature was kind and we had a perfect day!

First thing I noticed right from the start with Sarah was that she and her mom have an amazing bond. It was even more apparent on Sarah's wedding day. Her mom was a mix of being happy for daughter and being heartbroken her baby was grown up. It was so touching. Sarah and Kris are simply crazy about each other and are a perfect match. The entire wedding party seemed to have a bond and was blast to work with. It was a beautiful fall day which topped it all off!
I was so excited for Candice and Shane's wedding. It was the first time I had done a wedding at Lone Summit Ranch. I've been to this venue just about every summer for the last 10 years for the annual Fike Corporation company picnic and have said every year how I hoped to do a wedding there someday. Of course their wedding day turned out to be one of the hottest days of the summer with temps over 100 degrees. Needless to say, I was wondering why I wore my traditional all black clothing. Ugh. Despite the heat, the wedding was beautiful and everyone had a wonderful time! Congratulations Candice and Shane!!
