Kansas City Wedding Photographer | Natasha McGuire Photography » Weddings, engagements and portrait photographer in Kansas City.

Engagement photos are so much fun! I absolutely love getting to spend time with my couples prior to their wedding day! I also love when couples chose a location that has meaning to them! In this case it was their family cabin in Hannibal, MO! What a gorgeous location! Let’s start with some golden hour images just outside of the cabin:

I love real laughs and romantic photos too!

We made sure and got some images outside of the stone cabin as well.

What a beautiful engagement ring!

In the photo below, we made sure and captured the beautiful skies as well as the beautiful couple by using off camera flash (OCF).

My couples receive a copy of each image in color as well as in black and white!

Amazing location in Hannibal, MO! Love the rolling hills behind them!

Just look at the way they look at each other!

So serious. Just kidding!

I love moving around your engagement shoot location! In the images below  we put the sun behind the couple. They have that beautiful glow around them!

We worked with the breeze for that perfect wind blown hair!

Their family cabin is so cool! Such a great engagement photo shoot location!

It’s so fun to play with engagement rings! We put her ring on this container full of feathers!

Real laughs are so wonderful!

We made sure and captured some inside images as well! Beautiful farmhouse decor too!

They enjoy spending weekends at their family cabin!

He had to include the ruins in some images as well!

Candid photos are always a favorite!

This tree was planted on their property years and years ago!

This image was taken at the same location! I gave it a modern vibe by whiting out the skies! Something unique and different!

Grabbed some solo shots too!

Making each other laugh! So great to see!

That cabin is such a good backdrop!

I had such a great evening with Danette and Rob. I didn’t want it to end! I hope you enjoyed viewing their engagement photos just as much as I enjoyed taking them! Email me with your engagement session location ideas! natasha@natashamcguire.com

There needs to be more mom and daughter photos in the world! Life is so busy and mom is usually the busiest! She’s usually the one taking the photos!

Here are some ideas that I shared with them for planning what outfits to bring:

An outfit that you feel fabulous in! An outfit that is special occasion and that you might not get the chance to wear often! An outfit that has movement, like flowy skirts/dresses. A light colored outfit. (White/Neutrals) A dark colored outfit. Something timeless like a solid white or solid black top with sleeves. I wouldn’t worry about trying to bring shoes for each outfit, unless you have shoes that you love and want to show off.

It’s also great to pair outfits together that compliment each other. I am happy to help with outfit selections. I really enjoy it! Email me at: natasha@natashamcguire.com. Let me know if you’d like studio or outdoor portraits or even a mix of both!
