We met Ashley and Josh and their sweet Chinese Shar-Pei, Miss Piggy earlier this summer for their engagement session. Josh and Ashley aren’t originally from Kansas City, but knew they wanted their photos to be taken here. Ashley is from Philadelphia and Josh is from Chicago. They met while working in Chicago and recently moved to Kansas City.
Josh loves the hustle and bustle of Chicago, and Ashley knew that she wanted romantic pictures. After throwing a few ideas around, we finally settled on shooting at one of our favorite parks on The Plaza, and in a favorite downtown neighborhood. We were so glad that Ashley and Josh were excited about their locations! Can we tell you how excited we were to meet Miss Piggy? She may be one of the sweetest dogs that we’ve worked with all year!
After we finished up pictures with Miss Piggy, Ashley and Josh changed clothes and met us downtown. One of our favorite neighborhoods is the area around the downtown Kansas City Library. We LOVE Sasha’s Bakery, and the Milwaukee deli, and it’s pretty hard to pass up the ivy on the side of the library.
Despite the beautiful night, as soon as we got in our cars to head home it started to pour. These two are the absolute sweetest, and we had such a great time with them during their engagement session! Our favorite moment from our time together? When Ashley and Josh decided to pop open a bottle of champagne to celebrate the end of their session.
Thank you so much you two for letting us create your engagement photos! We’re so happy with your images, and are so glad that you love them!
