Belated Engagement Session in Downtown Overland Park – Niccy + Jon

 

My best friend was married on a beach in St. Thomas quickly. Therefore, we headed to downtown Overland Park for a belated engagement session.

These two met on Myspace.The rest is history.

Niccy & Jon have been together for 9 impressive years. They got married back in February after a smooth cruise spit them out at St. Thomas. I got to watch the whole thing on Facebook Live and I promise, it was beautiful. Niccy has impeccable style (scroll past the hockey jerseys, I promise I’m not crazy) and looks cute in literally everything, and in our 6+ year friendship, it’s what I’ve determined I’m the most jealous of. She can dye her hair any color, she can put on any outfit, and she looks great. (In case you were wondering in a close second and third place are the fact that she is amazing at saving money & she’s got the cutest dogs in town.)

Niccy & Jon always keep each other laughing, love to play Pokemon Go! together, and are great at annoying one another like only two people who’ve been together 9 years can. It’s been amazing watching the most responsible person I know become a wife and get everything she deserves in life. I also felt absolutely blessed she came down to stay with me this past weekend after a rough plane ride home from Cali! I wanted to photograph them again in their wedding attire since I didn’t get to be there for the big day, but after determining that was way too much work, we compromised on a newlywed session.

These two packed up jerseys for their favorite hockey team for a couple shots of being super fans and then we headed to downtown Overland Park for some photos by the cutest theater.

Congrats to my best friend and the love of her life, I’m so excited to see where life takes them.

I can't recommend Tayanna highly enough. Not only were our pictures beautiful, but also she was an incredibly wonderful person to work with. She responds to emails quickly, and was flexible and organized. On our wedding day, it was awesome to have her around: she was fun and positive, and made bridal party pics and family pics actually fun and enjoyable. She's the best.

I am absolutely blessed to have chosen Tay for my elopement, both as a photographer and an ordained minister. It was an intimate ceremony and something so special that I will never forget. The ceremony and photos took place in the very cold snow, because I love snow! Tay was a champ making sure I got the best possible images that would bring back memories of this day forever! I have already had many people tell me that they were some of the best wedding photos they’ve ever seen! 😊 if you’re planning on eloping or need photos for your big wedding, Tay is your girl!

"Tay is your girl!"

Tayanna is amazing! Her pictures are beautiful, she listens to exactly what you are looking for, helps you come up with a timeline for your big day and makes you feel comfortable having your picture taken. She was recommended to me by 2 friends whose wedding pictures I loved and after meeting with her I knew she was the one to capture our wedding day. Now I'm recommending her to you! Hire her. You'll be so happy you did!

"Hire her."
