Pro Tip: When it's cold outdoors, shoot your engagement photos indoors!
That's exactly what Nick and Amanda decided this December in Kansas City. Amanda and I are similar in that we are not afraid to say "hey we don't love cold weather" like some others might like. So as soon as we heard John's Greenhouse reopened under new management, we were ALL over this tropical paradise. This 100 plus-year-old greenhouse is a hidden gem all in itself, full of so much vintage charm. We took full advantage of every nook and cranny of this place. I have to applaud this couple for being such troopers as I had them squeezing into tight spaces, sitting, standing, giving piggyback rides and so much more. But I do have to say, these two soaked up the December sun in the best way possible...
Pro Tip #2: If it's cold outside, break your engagement photos up over 2 sessions!
Nick and Amanda wanted photos in time to send out their save the dates but also wanted photos of them in open fields. My solution? Give them both! We cozied up in the winter months in a local greenhouse and frolicked in wildflower fields when summer rolled around. There's really no wrong way to do an engagement session, what's most important is you communicate what you want from your time spent with your photographer. Being involved in the planning of your session shows your photographer that you value their time and their art because you want to be a part of it too! Speak up and get the images you want, after all, you're only engaged once
Amanda + Nick, I can't wait for your big day this summer! THE COUNTDOWN IS ON!! Let's Do This Thingggggg!
