Sometimes you get out shooting with a couple unsure of how it will turn out but the rush of relaxation comes over you as soon as you realize how chill and funny the couple is. Kristin and Travis are so much fun to interact with, they have been together for such a good chunk of time you can just feel the best friendship they share. We discovered some crazy beautiful spots on our lakeside adventure and the cloudy day just added to the richness of color. So excited for these two as they continue on their sweet journey as a couple.
There is just something about getting out into the middle of nowhere and capturing the sun as it goes down. Thank goodness for four wheel drive cars and fun couples because both were needed to achieve this awesome shoot. These two are so sweet together it's hard not to notice. They balance each other out in such a perfect way. While one is shy the other brings out the affection of the other. They aren't afraid to show love and accept love from the other person. They are fun to be around and ready to be together for their lives.
We got to actually shoot their engagement photos on the same land they will be getting married on this Fall. That make this land in so many ways sacred to their sweet love story. I love shooting on locations of significance because they bring a life to the photos that is unexplainable. Also the sun was being incredible and I couldn't have asked for a better glow over everything.
I meet a lot of couples in the world of photography. I love being able to capture their love stories during all the different seasons of a couple's life. From engagement and the wedding to capturing the sweet parenting love after they've had their first little one. The love only grows but there is nothing like that fresh best friend love.
These two are that in a nutshell. They make each other laugh and keep each other calm. They've traveled together moved together and made so many memories together already and this just plays out in the beautiful way they balance one another.
This session was really about getting to explore a small part of downtown Kansas City and grab some fun but laid back photos of this special time of engagement. We started around the Library capturing the rooftop terraces and their mutual love of books and ended exploring some cool walls and windows trying to avoid the windy day. It was such a chill morning and I can't wait to shoot their Wedding this Fall.
