The first time I photographed Anne-Marie it was in celebration of her work being published. We did head shots in order for her to submit it for her book. It was exciting to be able to capture her for such an important event. However, I think this one probably trumps the head shots. She contacted me again this time to celebrate her engagement! It was my pleasure to document some of her and her fiance Nick’s favorite places. I hardly had to give them any directions at all which makes for some wonderful moments captured.
About 12 years ago I meet for the first time this vibrant, tell it how it is, full of laughter lady. She became my sister-in-law a year later. She is till all those things but now she is also in love. It is so much fun to see her this way. To watch her trust and give herself to Terrill is precious. It does my heart well to see the glow and demonstrations of satisfaction and contentment. It was my privilege to capture their sweet love.
I love The Plaza in Kansas City. It’s always full of life. When Amelia suggested it as the place to take their engagement photographs I was more then happy to take them there. However, I quickly found out that The Plaza was much more then a fun destination location for this couple. They meet at Seasons 52 for their first date that ended up lasting for hours walking around The Plaza. They spent most of their date night falling in love at The Plaza as it was the perfect mid way point for them to meet. It was en lighting to walk around with them and they would share why different spot where so special to them. The Plaza became much more then a pretty backdrop for this engagement session but more a capturing of many memories of them falling in love. It was my honor to capture those moments.
