Amazing Kansas City Engagement Locations

Here is a list of some of my favorite and most amazing Kansas City Engagement Session Locations. Kansas City has a whole host of amazing places with beautiful architecture and history behind it.

This blog post will give you a good idea of some of the best styles for your own session!

Kauffman Center of Performing Arts

Kauffman Center is obviously well known for the amazing shows you can watch there, but it’s also a center of architectural glory in Kansas City. The colors there are beautiful and neutral which gives you a wide variety of color palettes. If you turn the corner there is also this adorable wall of greenery. This location is perfect for engagement sessions and as a classy, minimalist place to take your wedding party on your big day!

The Nelson-Atkins Museum

The Nelson is another place that is perfect for weddings (make sure your photographer has a permit!) or an engagement session. There are so many buildings, sculptures, and fun staircases. This is a great place to get ~weird~ with your photos.

Winterset/Charles David Hartman Memorial Park

Winterset Park is perfect for looking like you’re not in the middle of Kansas City if you’re a more outdoorsy couple. We’ll get an amazing few mile hike and you’ll get unique photos. If you’re feeling fiesty, go ahead and get in the water too. I promise it’s super cute.

Nerman Museum

Downtown Overland Park

Downtown Overland Park is one of my favorite places to take engagement photos in Kansas City simply because it’s never very busy. (I mean, just don’t go when the farmer’s market is happening) There are vignettes upon vignettes for beautiful backdrops and you can pop into one of the shops for dinner when you’re done.

Figured out your engagement location but now need to know where to get married? I got you.

Choosing Tay to photograph our wedding was one of the easiest and best decisions we made. Both my husband and I are awkward and uncomfortable with being the center of attention and photographed, obviously a bad position to be in on your wedding day. However, Tay made something typically uncomfortable for us into something fun and easy! The photographs are beautiful and captured a lot of special moments as well as the energy of our dance floor at our reception!!

Tay is simply the best! Her work is STUNNING, and we're so lucky to have found her. We had a blast during our engagement shoot -- Tay instantly makes you feel so comfortable, as if you've known her for years. Our family and friends loved the photos as much as we did. It was important to us that we find an experienced photographer who knows how to photograph people of color and is LGBTQ-friendly. Tay absolutely fits the bill. We're so excited to work with her again at our wedding in April. Also, brides-and-grooms-to-be: Check out her blog for some amazing tips! It has become a touchstone guiding us through this crazy process.

I’m so glad I trusted Tayanna with my wedding day! She not only exceeded my expectations for what I thought our wedding photos could look like, but she had a beautiful sneak peek for me that night! The sneak peek was enough to make me sob. Then the rest of the photos came only 9 days later! I could go on forever. If you need a photographer that’s fun, energetic and on her game sooooo hard, you need Tayanna Harris. She’s killer!!!
