Year after year, couples everywhere dream of a picturesque fall engagement session in the midwest. And honestly, I don't blame them but I'm here to show you spring can be just as beautiful and downright picturesque as well! Spring engagement photo sessions have everything going for them; from blooming flowers to bright budding greens, the ability to wear tons of new cute trending outfits, and the added bonus of the sun staying out later in the day which allows for additional shooting time during the week. Because spring sessions aren't as sought after as fall sessions, you can also expect more openings and getting your gallery back sooner! Just a few of the many pros this season has when planning your engagement photos.
Next thought, locations! Locations like Loose Park near the Kansas City Plaza can be the perfect backdrop for your spring session. Rolling hills, weeping willows, wide-open spaces, stunning trees, and lakeside opportunities just to name a few. I love both the versatility and the size of this location. While it can be quite busy with everything from proms, to family photos, to graduation parties, to just hanging together as friends, the space Loose Park offers still allows for your session to feel private. But what I love even more is mixing a nature location like Loose Park with a city scene location, like the World War 1 Monument. Angela and Adam knew they wanted both nature and city views for their session, and I think we can all agree the locations we chose did not disappoint!
Pro Tip: Choosing two locations for your engagement session also allows for the perfect chance for an outfit change. I typically recommend one casual look + one dressy look and having two locations & settings to reflect these looks is the perfect way to highlight each. The outcome of all these changes is a variety of images to complete your full gallery. I love helping my couples decide both locations and outfits to make the most of our time together and Adam and Angela's photographs are a most wonderful example of just that.
