What made this engagement photography session so unique and fun was hands down Kacie’s creative ideas. I initially met with Kacie and Casson for their consultation to discuss wedding photography for their 2018 wedding at Son Wray Ranch in Newton, Kansas. Photography is important to Kacie so she wanted a wedding photographer who could help beautifully execute her creative ideas. Of course, I was excited to hear about their wedding and the photography ideas she had for both her wedding and engagement photography. One idea that came up was using sparklers, both in a sparkler exit for their wedding and also using them to draw and write in their engagement photos. Between her sparkler idea and all of the details we discussed for their wedding, I was thrilled to be the photographer to help make her ideas come to life in their photos.
We started their engagement session out in Newton, Kansas on some dirt roads where the trees converged and made for a beautiful scene. We dodged the rain a bit but, in the end, the slightly moody skies made for some dramatic skies and an amazing sunset. Once we finished the first part of their session out in the country, we headed to Son Wray Ranch. This is also the venue for their upcoming wedding, so it was a perfect setting for their engagement session. The venue is beautiful and relaxed and gave us a variety of backgrounds for their photos. It was also perfect for envisioning the best spots for their wedding photos so that we get the best shots on their big day.
By the time we started shooting the sparkler photos, it felt like I was just out shooting with friends. Kacie and Casson both have a great sense of humor that made the session fun, and their enthusiasm for the photo shoot made their photos turn out amazing. I can’t wait for their upcoming wedding in Newton!
