Brad & Bailee // Engagement

It's been a while since my last engagement shoot, and I couldn't have asked for a better couple to work with on Saturday. Brad and Bailee were so fun to get to know, and they rocked it in front of the camera (don't you agree??)! I'm not much of a fan of cold weather, but I do love starting photoshoots off with delicious coffee (thank you, Decade!) and exploring fallen trees and open fields during golden hour. Brad and Bailee have such a sweet story, and their excitement to get married in September is obvious. Plus they're super easy to talk to and clearly super cool people. :) I can't wait to capture their wedding day in just 7 short months! In the meantime, enjoy some highlights from their shoot!

The Days // Maternity

I was so thrilled to be contacted by the Day family again! Last time I had worked with them, little Emry was only 6 months old, and now she's expecting a baby sister! It was so fun to see how much Emry had grown since our last shoot (which can be found here) and to capture her with Allison and James before the next bundle of joy arrives. Allison looks absolutely beautiful and she certainly has the maternity glow going on, plus her red hair worked wonders with the sunset. :) Thankfully we lucked out with a 50+ degree day at the end of December (thanks, Kansas), so this time I was able to show them some of my favorite Lawrence spots! I'm so excited for this family as they await baby girl #2. I hope I'll be able to meet her when she arrives! 

Thanks for trusting me with your photos again, James and Allison, and many congratulations to you both!

Fall 2016 Engagements

2017 is almost upon us, and I didn't want to let 2016 slip by without highlighting these 6 incredible couples I got to work with this fall. Typically I try to blog after each engagement shoot, but to be completely honest, nursing school got crazy and time seemed to disappear in thin air. Now that I have some breathing room, though, I wanted to show you all some highlights from the last couple of months. Enjoy!

1. Matt + Erin: these two were sweet, charming, and full of laughter. I had so much fun showing them some of my favorite Lawrence spots (including the delicious Alchemy coffee), and we got to utilize a gorgeous sunset and golden hour at Wells Overlook Park. This couple's happiness was contagious, and I'm so excited for their wedding come June!

2. Curtis + Keely: this couple blew me away with their ease in front of the camera. I was excited for another opportunity to explore Manhattan, and we discovered some truly beautiful spots (including the breathtaking rolling hills in their own backyard)! Knowing these two separately in high school and getting to work with them now that they're engaged was so fun, and I'm honored to be capturing their wedding day as well next summer!

3. Jacob + Ariel: what a giddy and fun-loving couple! They did awesome as they braved one of the first chilly Kansas mornings, and their dog was ecstatic to be able to run free around Centennial Park (after posing for some pictures, of course). It's always a pleasure to meet other Lawrence locals, and these two are certainly no exception! I can't wait to photograph their wedding next fall!

4. Jason + Christy (& Lakyn!): it was such a treat to work with this family. We had an adventure exploring Clinton Lake (along with their two beautiful dogs), and we lucked out with some gorgeous weather and views! Plus their engagement story of Jason proposing to both Christy and Lakyn was one of the sweetest I've heard. I'm looking forward to working with all of them again next fall!

5. Michael + Stevie: I loved working with these two and exploring Loose Park with them. Their interactions were so sweet, and I loved to capture their love on camera (is it possible to use love too many times in one sentence?). Plus we hit Loose Park right as the leaves started turning and before the roses froze so we got the best of both worlds! Can't wait to photograph their big day in May!

6. Ryan + Kait: these two are just awesome. Although my favorite part of the shoot may have been their dog, Peach (just kidding... kind of). :) In all seriousness, though, Ryan and Kait have been so fun to get to know, and it was great to discover new Lawrence photo spots with them. I do have to admit that I had serious skirt envy throughout the shoot, although I don't know if I could pull it off as well as Kait did! I'm so excited for these two, and I hope to be taking more photos of them in the future!
