Shawnee Mission Engagement

Bailey + Connor’s Shawnee Mission Engagement session was beyond words.  First of all, it was a glorious fall day… IN DECEMBER!!  (Ye-ah I did a happy dance!)  Secondly, these two are adorable.  Conner and Bailey are super-friendly.   And spending a relaxed afternoon in the park with them couldn’t have been more perfect.  Connor worked at Shawnee Mission Park in high school, and while we had scoped it out before hand, he took us to some of his favorite spots.  And they were beautiful.

Within a few short moments, it became easy to see how well these two bring out the best in each other.  Conner can make Bailey laugh with a whisper of a few quiet words.  Upon seeing her laugh, he beams with joy.  And even in silence, there is a peaceful contentment just holding one another.

So, how did they know they were right for each other?

Connor comments, “I knew she was the one once I said goodbye to her after my first visit to Texas Christian University because I realized I never wanted to say goodbye to my best friend ever again!”
Bailey shares, “I knew he was the one before I made the decision to kiss him first on our High School Senior Spring Break trip to Cancun, Mexico.  I realized college was coming up, and I didn’t want our relationship to end quite yet!”

How He Proposed:

She explains, “Since Connor and I had done the long-distance thing for four years, we wanted to celebrate finally being back in Kansas City.  We booked a trip for the two of us to go back to Cancun, Mexico where we had been 4 years prior for Spring Break.  While we were on a walk on the beach, Connor got down on one knee and popped the question!  October 15th, 2016.  He was so nervous, it was adorable!”  And as you can guess, she said yes.

Originally, they were unsure if they wanted to have a professional engagement session.  We are so glad they did.  Bailey+Conner it was such a delight to get to know you both and we are so excited to be with you at your wedding capturing beautiful memories for you, not just as acquaintances, but as friends.
