Monica and Matt are the couple that everyone loves. They’re easy and natural together, with lots of laughter and love. Not everyone that we get to work with is sentimental, but they are. Matt proposed to Monica at the same place where they had their first date. The infamous Papa Kenos in downtown Overland Park. Since they love the area so much, we started their engagement session on the same block, and we’re so glad they asked us to.
Overland Park has a great Farmer’s Market, and during the week when the market isn’t going on, the courtyard is quiet. We couldn’t leave Overland Park without creating a few images outside Papa Kenos. These ended up being one of our favorite pages in their engagement album!
We finished Matt and Monica’s engagement session at Swope Park. The beautiful stone arches and trellises with the tower were the perfect spot for pictures. And of course we had to incorporate their favorite Chiefs gear! Although our sunset spot was locked up, the lake at Swope Park made a beautiful finishing spot. And crazily enough, the background complimented Matt’s shirt perfectly.
I’m not sure that we could choose a favorite moment from their engagement session. We love that we got to visit one of their favorite couple spots. And that they got to laugh and play and have fun with a football. And we can’t even get over all of the quiet moments between the two of them that happened during their session.
Congratulations again, Matt and Monica! Thank you so much for letting us create your engagement pictures! We are SO excited for your wedding day next July!
