Lauren & Andrew, Liberty Memorial Engagement

Andrew is a pilot so he flew in for their engagement photos. We had to shoot this day. They are doing their love long distance. The forecast said no showers. I mean, he’s practically a meteorologist. Yet that rain decided it was coming whether we liked it or not. They could have been extremely frustrated […]

Lauren & Tyler Engagement

One of the best parts of my jobs is meeting new people and learning about them, how they met, what they do. I always have such interesting clients. Lots of engineers, lawyers, architects, I swear most of my clients are nurses or teachers. A lot of people with great hearts and a desire to help […]

Kali & Adam | Engaged 10.6.16

What a sweet way to start your wedding weekend celebration. Kali & Adam flew into Kansas City separately due to work schedules, and hadn’t seen each other in a few days, so after reuniting for their engagement session at Loose Park’s Rose Garden, they got to start their wedding weekend just them two, together for […]

Kauffman Gardens + Kansas City beloved

These two were nothing less than giggly and fun. I really enjoyed watching them laugh at everything they did together. There is no better medicine in life than burning easy calories laughing and having a good time with the company of the ones you love. Very much looking forward to Laura & Ryan’s wedding day. […]

Brooke & Enrico, New Zealand |Proposal

This couple.. man they have stories. I admire couples who enjoy the roses around them, who travel the world, experience new things,  love like there’s nothing else to do in the world, and laugh like kids together as if no one else is around. Maybe my zest for life always seems corny, but when I […]

Jenny & Austin, Engaged

Jenny… a previous college volleyball player with me at Graceland University, and Austin, also a mens volleyball player at Graceland (the height) were so ridiculously fun planning their engagement session. We not only tried twice to get this shoot done due to storms, but three times. The second time, we thought it was a go, […]

Marissa & Brad | Longview Mansion Engagement

So one of my favorite things when I shoot with couples, is when one (or even both) of them “giggles” the whole time. It’s either A-out of nervousness.. or B-because they are straight up adorable and are completely enjoying their shoot with me. I think B for sure. Heck, I can tell that when I’m […]

Zach & Bailey Engaged at Royals Stadium

Super fans they are. That’s right.. we got a special treat.. a two hour tour of the entire Royals Stadium in Kansas City. Only people who go to THAT many games and get a little brick on the Kauffman grounds with their name together on it, can get this special kind of treatment. I’m surprised […]

That’s right.. we brought home the enormous, sparkling gold trophy to brag on our rights of IM Champions. {Not really, we just got black and white long sleeve […]

Leah & Nick Engaged

Man. I just had to steal this inevitable quote for the subject like, from the groom to be himself, Nick. Very fitting. It’s engagement sessions like this, that I adore. Not only because they are that cool but because I get that rare and “make my day” kind of email from.. NOT THE BRIDE to […]

A Sunrise Proposal

I feel so honored to get to post this, as I played such a big (and shall I mention, rediculously fun) part in this sunrise proposal of Jenny & Austin. So I get a phone message from Austin.. “Hey Jana, it’s your good buddy Austin, call me when you can!” And SOMEHOW, I knew INSTANTLY […]
