Union Station and Downtown Kansas City: Engagement Session Location Breakdown

Going for a chic, modern, trendy Instagram-worthy look for your engagement photos? Then I might suggest choosing Downtown Kansas City for your location. This engagement session location breakdown is all about what downtown KCMO brings to the table for your engagement photos. In 2022 I had A LOT of these types of session requests. So I thought what better way to showcase what downtown can offer than to mash up these incredible engagement sessions into one big blog post!

Scrolling this post you'll see moments captured from the Crossroads district, Union Station, and the Financial District. Our downtown area has such a huge variety of backdrops and inspiration for engagement or couples photos. You can easily pop from one stop to the next spanning the entire downtown area if you wanted. From the riverfront to the plaza, Kansas City really is a beautiful place to show off.

I think one of my favorite things about utilizing the downtown area of Kansas City is its ability to transform into the look you're wanting. Most couples let the downtown area take on the form of a sleek and modern backdrop, incorporating little white courthouse-style dresses, high-heels, stellar suits for the guys, pops of flowers and champagne, and sometimes even fun sunglasses for that trendy modern flare. For the colder months, you can embrace long and luxurious trench coats, knee-high boots, sleek turtlenecks, that nice pair of gloves with a matching hat or scarf you've been dying to wear, moody patterns, a pop of sparkle, or even a monochromatic look. The downtown backdrop allows you and your partner to play up the fancy side of things, even if just for a day! From hotel lobbies, rooftops, and busy streets to grand doorways, and iconic Kansas City buildings, I LOVE a downtown engagement or couples session!
