Ryan & Sarah dated from their sophomore year of high school until their sophomore year of college, having little idea that life wouldn’t let them be apart for long. Between PhD programs, jobs, and moves, these two have been best friends for over a decade and now, are FINALLY (ha!) getting married!
Growing up in Kansas City our closest family was a few hours away in St. Louis. But now, Ryan (my cousin!) & Sarah call Kansas City home! So while their wedding will be in their home of St. Louis, it was so fun (and kind of surreal!) to run around downtown Kansas City with them for their engagement session.
All of these were taken in just a 30 minute window before sunset and I adore the fact that we started at their old Kansas City loft! They know these streets well, though home is now a beautiful fixer-upper about 20 minutes away, and I loved hearing them talk about their favorite burger places, date nights to the arcade etc. For two people who really did not want their pictures taken, I think they did amazing. And at the end Sarah even said that she had so much fun (though I think the pre-session champagne might get credit for that more than I haha!)
Counting down until your wedding in June, Ryan & Sarah! Thanks so much for trusting me to document this season for you!!
