Vincent & Janny // Kansas City Engagement Photography

I'm so excited to be able to continue the love with another Howze brother this coming October with Vincent and Janny. When we first started planning their engagement photos, I love that the very first thing Vincent wanted to do was show his support for the Kansas City Royals. So what'd we do, we swung by the stadiums and got some great shots in front of Kauffman Stadium. They looked so adorable in their jerseys and I can tell they were having a blast! After leaving the stadiums we headed off to another KC monument, the Liberty Memorial, and then finished at the Plaza where Vincent proposed to Janny. I absolutely love when couples incorporate their history into their engagement photos, which helps bring their story to life.

Finding unique locations in Kansas City is one of my favorite parts of shooting engagement sessions. Gives me a chance to see parts of the city, I wouldn't normally get to. This was special because each location was just as unique and personal to the couple as the next. Meet Mike & Sonja. Born and raised across the state from each other, but their love blossomed and was crafted in KC. I love the wall we found in the East Bottoms at Urban Provisions, it was so perfect for their story. Stay tuned for more of their journey come February when they are finally married.

What to Wear // Spring Engagement Shoots

What to Wear // Spring Engagement Shoots

If you are getting married in the Fall, Spring is the perfect time for Engagements photos. If you choose to do them, they are the first thing on your wedding to-do list that you will accomplish as a newly engaged couple. Planning an engagement shoot does take some time, but lean on your photographer for location ideas and what outfits to choose. With my experience I have come to find that choosing your outfits are solely based on your personalities, the weather and how comfortable you want to be, which is very important. And depending on how much time is allowed for the shoot, determines how many outfits you can bring. I recommend bringing – a fancier outfit, a stylish/casual outfit, and then finally a more laid back outfit (think jeans, shorts, sports team shirts, college attire etc.)

Below are some color inspiration outfits for the Spring but also check out my last engagement outfit post, where I provide more in detail on how to accomplish a very nice complimentary outfit with your fiance. www.dhdesignphotography.com/blog/2014/5/14/what-to-wear-engagement-edition

Thank you for letting me capture the love between you two!

Kaitlin & Garrett // Kansas City Engagement Session

Kaitlin & Garrett // Kansas City Engagement Session

With a fresh start to my website and trying to decide what to put in my galleries, I've realized there are a ton of sessions that I did not get around to blogging and deserve to be showcased since I am unable to put every single photo I've ever taken in my portfolio. So I figured I would go through and blog sessions from 2015. 

Kaitlin and Garrett's engagement session was so gorgeous that I knew I had to start here. Enjoy!
