Stacie and Jon introduced me to Peanut Butter Whiskey, so I’m not being dramatic when I say I would die for them.

These two are downtown OP dwellers so we made plans to head out to their space for photos. They are self-professed cuddle bugs and that made them the absolute easiest to photograph. After we walked down around town, we headed out with their motorcycle out to Antioch Park to finish off their engagement session. I think it was the closest I’ve ever been to a motorcycle. Then, in between all this? We stopped for Peanut Butter Whiskey shots. Holy. Freaking. Shit. It was delicious. I’m not a big sweets gal. I’m also not a big peanut butter gal. (Although if you get me a fun shaped Reese’s I’m down to clown). The whiskey was probably one of the best things I’ve ever tasted, though. My birthday is in 2 weeks. I wouldn’t mind a bottle.

Back to these two. They are probably my favorite couple to have ever filled out a questionnaire for me. It was honest, hilarious, and reminded me that the best thing you can do is just have fun with your partner. They’re getting married in Topeka next December and once we found out we were color palette trends, I was convinced it was meant to be. Granted, hers is entirely more appropriate than my middle of August wedding, but that’s okay. Stacie is taking a page right out of the “Your day, your way” handbook. Her dress will be burgundy, she’s getting married at her venue because of all the Christmas decor, and it will beĀ beautiful.

Before you look through these photos, I’ll leave you with my favorite line from their questionnaire.

Do you have nicknames for each other?
Our nicknames change daily, though Stacie has taken an affinity to calling Jon, Jonalyn.

You should have seen his face when I mentioned it.

Motorcycle Engagement at Antioch Park – Stacie & Jon

I have been asked to write this one million times. In fact, I have sat down to do it and then I realize I don’t feel qualified. I still don’t, but for the 1 person I might help? Let’s just try it. There are some unavoidable things in life, but as much as I can […]

My boudoir studio is located right where we took these photos. Why on earth is this my first engagement session there? When Katie & Jesse told me they wanted something the complete opposite of their wedding vibe (barn-like) and preferred the look of the historic West Bottoms for their engagement session, I was all in. […]

Hi! The site looks a little different if you’ve been here before, yeah? If not, welcome to my tiny corner of the internet! When I imagined introducing my new branding and website to the world, 100% of me knew I wanted to do it with this blog post. Was I sure what “this” blog post […]

Chark & I (that’s Charleen & Mark) headed out to Red Door Wine Store last week for their engagement session. I quickly knew upon their inquiry that we were kindred spirits. Ean & I also used our celebrity couple name (Tean) to create an e-mail to organize all of our wedding e-mail shenanigans. It felt […]
