Most of the time, things just fall into place. This year more than ever I’ve known that to be true.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Jessica & Davin had to reschedule their engagement session due to the pandemic (safety and haircuts first!) and you know what? Their original session date was bleak, overcast and rainy. But JUST WAIT til you see at what Mother Nature cooked up for us on Sunday evening! I just can’t get enough of this glowy light bathing these two in all of its glory!
Our first stop was the Nelson-Atkins Museum! You’ve heard me preach it before: this Kansas City icon is a classic portrait spot for a reason. I am so thankful to the museum for letting photographers use its sculpture garden for portraits!
Jessica & Davin have been lovebirds since senior year of high school – over 6 years ago! It’s easy to see that these two have such a longstanding bond. Their personalities and senses of humor seem made for each other. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
From this very first photo I took with Jessica & Davin, I knew it was going to be a fun night. These two kept each other laughing from start to finish!
See what I mean about that glowy light?
Our second stop was Loose Park. This gorgeous KC oasis has personal meaning to Jessica & Davin because it’s where Davin proposed last spring!
Loose Park is another popular location for a reason. Sometimes it’s so full of groups getting their portraits taken that you have to wait for certain popular spots to open up. When is this most true? Prom night. And, you guessed it, Davin proposed to Jessica in Loose Park on prom night, one of the busiest evenings of the year!
Davin wanted to pop the question on the park’s most famous bridge, but the waiting line was simply too long and he had a gorgeous pear-shaped ring burning a hole in his pocket. So Davin found a more private spot where he could ask Jessica for forever. But rest assured we finished the evening on the very bridge where these two almost became fiancés!
Final kiss on the bridge!
I can’t wait for your wedding this September!
