Fall colors are almost gone, but that didn't stop us from finding a few pretty trees at Shawnee Mission Park last weekend.
These two were so much fun. One of my favorite parts of any engagement session is when the couple lets loose and genuinely has a blast with each other. That was definitely true with these two. Richard is the type of guy who doesn't take anything too seriously. Going through these images, I was cracking up at the bloopers. I've included a couple for you all, but most of them will be reserved for their eyes only 😂
At the end of the session, Richard told me "I hope you had as much fun as we did." My answer was "absolutely"! Whenever a couple is having fun, I am also having fun. Most of the time, the groom dreads the idea of pictures, so it makes me extra happy whenever he admits to having such a great time.
Mikaela also chose to have a styled engagement session with hair and makeup from White Carpet Bride to ensure she was looking her best!
Thank you Mikaela and Richard for such a fun session at Shawnee Mission Park!
- Hear from the couple -
How did he propose?
We went on vacation to Washington State to visit Richard's parents. We had a boat cruise planned one of the days on Coeur d'Alene Lake in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. When we arrived, Richard and I went to a small overlook by the lake so we could get some pictures. Once his mom was done taking the pictures, he proceeded to get down on one knee. When he pulled out the ring box, it was a candy Ring Pop (an inside joke between us). I had no idea how to react and at the same time a small crowd was forming behind him, unaware of the Ring Pop. His mom then came over and brought out the ring box with the real engagement ring in it. We then celebrated with drinks and took our boat ride around the lake. The views were breathtaking, and it was a memory we will never forget!
Question for the bride: what do you love most about him?
I love that I can tell him anything and how supportive he is in everything I do.
Question for the groom: what do you love most about her?
I love how happy Mikaela makes me
