Last night, against the odds, Tara & Johnny braved the weather with me to celebrate their engagement!
(And if you’re not sure what weather I’m talking about braving it’s rain. It’s always rain these days!)
A few days before their engagement session, I messaged Tara to see if they wanted to reschedule. The forecast wasn’t looking great, and I had a feeling it’d be too rainy. But neither Tara nor Johnny are ones to let a little rain stand in their way. They are both competitive runners (I’m so jealous!), which is how they met. And if you know anything about runners, you know we persevere through just about anything – even a little inclement weather!
Thankfully we found a window of time yesterday when the rains paused and the clouds parted just a little bit to give us the most perfect glowy light for Tara & Johnny’s engagement session! The best part? We hardly had to share Loose Park with anyone else!
Tara & Johnny chose Loose Park for their session location because of its natural beauty and its proximity to the Plaza. Their entire engagement/wedding story will revolve around the Plaza, actually! They both live on the Plaza, their wedding will be at the nearby Nelson-Atkins Museum, and Loose Park is near the Plaza. I love how these two are creating so many memories close to their home! It’ll make it all the easier to revisit them in the future.
It was so wonderful to get to spend such a lovely evening in the company of Tara & Johnny. And now I’m even more excited for their wedding day next summer with Simple Elegance leading our team!
I can’t wait to continue the fun next summer!!
