Engagement Session Style Guide


SELECTING THE RIGHT LOCATION THE LOCATION OF YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION IS UP TO YOU! The first thing to decide is whether you’d like to feature more nature or more city in your session. Like you see throughout this guide, most of my couples want to showcase the natural beauty of the land/cityscape to give their out-of-town guests a fun preview of what to expect when they travel to the area. Since Kansas City doesn’t have mountains or deserts, I especially love using the beautiful buildings downtown as a backdrop, although there are many gorgeous parks and Kansas field options as well. I’m also always up for exploring a new spot together. ENGAGEMENT STYLE GUIDE | 7

think outside the box THIS IS THE TIME TO THINK outside the box! I encourage you to brainstorm unique locations that you might have special access to that most people don’t. For example, maybe you, or someone in your personal or professional network, can secure permission to a location that would otherwise be off-limits, like a beautiful private estate, country club or resort. Maybe it’s a family ranch, upscale hotel or even an airplane hangar. The sky is literally the limit! Spend a few minutes thinking about it and checking around. You’ll be surprised with what you come up with. Plus, if something seems out of reach, just remember: you never know until you ask! My couples have secured permission to some pretty amazing places in the past, but I have some great go-to locations around town that we can always use, too. Just let us know which session you love from my blog, and whether you’d like to feature the cityscape or not, and we will go from there! Easy. Peasy. KIRA WHITNEY | 8
