It’s crazy to think that it’s nearly been a year since this shoot. And it’s probably no secret that it’s one of my all time favorites — for several reasons.
1.) We didn’t do uber girly/flower-y [is that a word? it is now]
2.) We shot in a construction zone . . and we didn’t wear hard hats! Such Rebels!
3.) Some of my favorite people and vendors were participants. Thanks again to our real life [hottie] couple Amanda & Zach for modeling

Here’s a little bit more about the shoot:
For River Market Event Place’s Spring 2016 Open House, we decided to combine to seemingly opposites. Industrial, which is sometimes viewed as hard, cold with Romance — and it couldn’t have meshed more perfectly. Currently it seems, Kansas City is surrounded by construction and growth; and as we grow as a community we wanted to show that same bond between two people. We kept the palate pretty simple which allowed us to have some colorful pops in the flowers. We had experienced unseasonably warm temperatures for Feb/March, so we were able to venture out for a few photos. This construction area is actually on my way to the studio, and I had been eye-balling it for about a week. I really wanted to shoot the mounds of gravel/dirt [Kansas City Mountains] before they came in and changed it. [they are just now starting to build on the site] As I was driving in the morning of the shoot, everything looked perfect. . the lighting, the weather etc. So we did it. We drove into the construction site and almost immediately a guy in a little orange vest started walking my way. I thought it was over, but instead he took his helmet off and said “I’m ready for my close-up when you are.” This shoot was just one of those instances where everything falls into place, I couldn’t have planned for this to turn out any better.
