Hey, everyone! Tatiana here to talk to you about a celebration of LOVE. First off, congratulations to Amanda and Dustin for winning our free engagement shoot!
They chose the Love Locks Bridge for the shoot location. They picked it from our awesome list of the Top 10 Photoshoot Locations in KC. This was such a fun area to explore and I’m grateful they were willing to go on little adventures to get the perfect shots.
It was such a treat meeting them and seeing their love for each other shine through on camera. When I asked how they met, here’s what Amanda had to say:
“We both met each other on Tinder (what people nowadays consider a hook up site lol). Definitely not our case!”
They were both in search of their special someone and became head over heels!
This is one of Dustin’s signature signs of affection for Amanda: the forehead kiss!
When the proposal happened, Amanda was so surprised, she thought the conversation was heading for the worst. AKA a breakup … not an engagement!
They were at the Plaza for their anniversary and it was bitter cold. Dustin casually asked Amanda “so, how much do you love me?”
She put her arms out wide and said “THIS MUCH!”
“Alright, and how much do you think I love you?” Dustin countered, with Amanda giving the same response as before.
Dustin disagreed and held his hand up, measuring a tiny amount, almost an inch. At this point, Amanda was really confused and thought he was trying to break up with her.
He then said (and I’m paraphrasing) “Sometimes you need to appreciate the small things, because they can turn into something much more.” That’s when he got down on one knee and pulled out the ring!
And what a ring!!! Whoo-whee!
When I heard the touchingly romantic story, Dustin said jokingly: “Yeah, I had to bring her down a little bit to build up the moment.”
There you have it, folks! TRUE LOVE! This tree stump is a new favorite hot spot — we got so many cute shots by it.
I wish them the best in their happy future together!
May the playground teasing never die, and Amanda stay safe from the slide bandit.
P.S. Book us for your wedding! 😉
