COMING SOON: Shannon + Richard | Sunday Afternoon Engagement Session

I know Shannon mostly through her father, Deacon Neal, of the Paseo Baptist Church (where I was once a member). Shannon and Richard, although very quiet and reserved when you first meet them, are two lovely people. It's the small things that I notice when photographing couples. Richard still practices good ol fashion chivalry i.e., holding her hand while walking, opening doors for her etc... Ladies there is still hope out here for our men. In my many years of photographing weddings, couples, family photos and engagement sessions, I witnessed a first...Shannon brought her own large size mirror to the engagement session. LOL!!! I cracked up laughing. Richard just blushed and smiled. Shannon has a angelic and soft spoken personality. These are just a few of my favs, stay tune for more. They plan to marry in July of 2013.

COMING SOON: Doretta + Melvin | Downtown Kansas City Engagement

Doretta and Melvin have a love story that should be shared by all and I'm just so lucky that I'm the one who gets to tell it in pictures. They wanted their engagement photos to depict Kansas City and where they are from rather than any old park or open field. During the e-session they kept me in stitches from laughing at all their little quirks and nuances. Both balance each other out in so many ways. Young love is so contagious. Stay tune for more images. They plan to wed in July 2013.

Eric + Danielle = Unbreakable and Unified

Men…you need to step up your game. Eric, is one of those men who aims to be a perfectionist and never wants his bride, Danielle, to ever lift a finger for anything. At least this is what I perceived in the last several months I have known them. I met both at a wedding reception in April of this year. I learned they were looking for a photographer for their October wedding. It’s not that common that you would find a man taking such an active role in planning their wedding. Eric broke that mold. He practices old fashion chivalry and Danielle soaks it up J. Danielle has a bubbly and can-do personality that is contagious. If her smile doesn’t win you over, her eyes definitely will. I often wonder if that it is what won Eric over. Family and friends near and far can see that love is a concrete word – there isn’t anything abstract about it. As the evening came to a close, the bridal party gathered outside to have a smoke with some of the special cigars made available for the guests. You will see from the photos that this smoke session wasn’t anything but boring. I was educated that there is an art to smoking a cigar. Did I try it? No, LOL but it was interesting catching some great images.
