Missouri Botanical Garden Engagement | Cody+Kristie!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I’m excited to be sharing this engagement session from way back at the end of May! Cody and Kristie traveled in to visit family, and we managed to squeeze in a beautiful (albeit, hot!) engagement session at the Missouri Botanical Gardens! This is one of my favorite spaces in St. Louis, and I am so glad I finally got to photograph a session there! Check out their gorgeous photos below <3

Cody+Kristie: Engagement Sneak Peek!

Good evening everyone! Liana here, and oh boy, do we have a lot of new work to share over the next few weeks! Not only do we have an engagement session, but we have a beautiful wedding to share as well! We’ll also have some personal sessions coming up too. For now though, we have a sneak peek of our most recent engagement session.

Kristie and Cody live in Garden City, Kansas, but Kristie’s family is from the STL area! They came into town over Memorial Day Weekend/Week, and got in touch with me. I know Kristie’s mom, Diane, through networking, and Diane was originally the one who asked me about engagement sessions! I was more than eager to share, and when she told me Kristie and Cody were thinking of one of my favorite places, I couldn’t say no! Kristie and Cody wished to have their engagement session at the Missouri Botanical Gardens! You all know from previous posts that I absolutely love the Gardens, and was thrilled to FINALLY photograph a session there!

Of course, in true Midwest fashion, it was about 85 degrees with 99% humidity haha. They were troopers though, and we managed to get some beautiful photos! Check them out below!


2018 Thank You!

Good evening everyone! Katie and Liana here tonight, and we just wanted to take a few moments out of the day to thank every single one of you for your continued support of K&L Photography <3 This year was our biggest yet, but we’ve got a lot of plans up our sleeves for 2019, and we’re hoping for an even bigger one next year!

When prepping for this post, I asked Katie to type up a quick thank you. I just read hers, and it sums up my feelings perfectly!

“This year has been a very busy and great year! I just want to personally thank each and every one of you for your help in making our business succeed. I’ve enjoyed getting to know and photograph all of our new, and returning, clients. Each session is always different, and always a good time! Without you, none of this would be possible. So, thank you and have a great and safe NYE.”

We wanted to post an image from each of our sessions we had, just to remind ourselves how lucky we are to do what we love <3

Future Mr. & Mrs. | Smart Engagement

Good evening, friends!

Katie here, and I’m so excited to be sharing some more images from Kyle and Chrystal’s engagement session from October! It was a cool afternoon at Capen Park in Columbia, Missouri but these two did great! We had to climb a little bit to get the views at the beginning, but we (thankfully) survived and the views were sooo worth it! AND they brought their pups, even better right?!

Kyle is my friend Paige’s brother in law, I photographed her maternity session a few years ago and actually photographed her wedding some years ago, so I’m very excited to be capturing Kyle and Chrystal’s special day next year!

I hope you enjoy tonight’s blog blog, stay tuned for their wedding day next year… I have a feeling it’s going to be fantastic!

Smart Engagement | Sneak Peek!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and I’m excited for tonight’s sneak peek! Meet Kyle and Chrystal- and their adorable pups! Kyle proposed about a year ago on trip to visit his brother, Eric and his wife Paige in Washington. Paige is one of my best friends from High School and I actually photographed their wedding years ago, so needless to say I’m super excited to be capturing Kyle and Chrystal’s special day!

Be sure to be on the lookout for the full blog post soon, and enjoy this sneak peek in the meantime!

Cady & Jordan | Summertime Love

Hello everyone! Liana here; it's been a busy week since I've gotten back home! We have two more weddings this year, so we are working on finalizing those and meeting with our brides to ensure the process is super easy for them! We're also working on becoming present on WeddingWire and TheKnot, so make sure to keep an eye out for those announcements! The best part about last week though, was being able to photograph Cady and Jordan! 

Cady and I met while working at InterState Studios, and I just love her. She's the cutest little thing, earning her the nickname "Lil' Biscuit". She is so sweet and down to Earth, and so is Jordan! They are an absolutely adorable couple, and have been together since college! I'm so glad I decided to come home early from Arizona, mainly because now I have the opportunity to photograph some events coming up!

Cady, Jordan and I met up at Creve Coeur Lake, which is one of my favorite spots for running, but I've never taken photos there! We were blessed with some cloud coverage and lower humidity, which made our session so much better! Cady and Jordan are great to work with, and I barely had to help with posing; once they got into a pose, they made it into their own! I can't wait to see these images up on their walls <3

Annie & Keith | Engagement Session

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I'm thrilled to FINALLY be sharing Annie and Keith's engagement session! We met up at Klondike Park in Augusta, MO on a Friday evening, and despite it being a typical Missouri day (i.e. lots of heat and humidity) we made the best of it and had a blast! Annie and Keith are getting married at Mount Pleasant this November, and Katie and I are so excited for it! (It may have something to do with being ready to photograph their adorable sons!) Check out all of their beautiful engagement photos below!

Annie & Keith | Sneak Peek Engagement

Hey everyone, Liana here tonight, and I am bringing you a great couple, a cool car, and some views that you just can't beat! Annie & Keith are a very down to earth couple, and we had a great time during their engagement session, despite the fact that it was 80+ degrees with about 100% humidity! Regardless of the hot weather, we met up at Klondike Park, which is located in Defiance, Missouri. Annie and Keith had never been there, and I had only been there once before, and that was several years ago. Exploring a new place is always a fun time, especially with views like the ones we got! 

Annie and Keith actually grew up a couple of subdivisions away from each other, but didn't meet until later on in life! They have two precious little boys, and we're so excited to see them at their wedding in November! For now, though, enjoy these sneak peek photos!

Conner & Catherine | Engaged!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and I'm SO excited to be sharing this sneak peek from Saturday morning- Conner & Catherine's engagement session! These two are *so* stinking cute together, and were so laid back the entire session. 

We met at Forest Park in St. Louis bright and early Saturday morning at the Grand Basin Fountains. These High School sweethearts actually took their prom pictures here, and I LOVE that they wanted to start there with photos. It was the perfect morning, not too hot/not too cool, the sun was peeking out every now and then, and as soon as I met Conner and Catherine I could tell how much they love each other. 

I brought my husband Beau, who you all know from previous sessions, to assist me on this session- so you know there were some laughs had! It was so great having fun and getting to know Conner & Catherine during this session, I cannot wait for their wedding in June 2019! In the meantime, please enjoy this sneak peek from these two love birds engagement session. It's so hard to pick a favorite, I'm loving these images so much already! 

<3 Katie
