Today, we’re here to bring you some historical urban jungle goodness!
West Bottoms is one of the oldest areas in Kansas City, located west of the newer downtown. Due to its atmosphere of rich culture and inner city vibes, it’s one of our top 10 favorite locations to shoot!
Whether it’s graffiti or just vibrant brick walls, there are so many epic backdrops to choose from!
It has so many great uses for photography. Especially for solitary photos like Halee’s senior photoshoot.
Halee chose this location for all of the fun pops of color. And it’s always a treat for us photographers because the graffiti is different every time! Seriously. We’ve never seen the same artwork twice!
Pleasing pops of color, exciting artwork, and a surprise at each brick wall you stumble across!
Around every corner, there are unique doors and entryways. These are perfect for symbolizing your path opening up to the future, like Sydney and Zane wanted to portray with their engagement shoot.
And, of course, we are ALWAYS down for a location that’s pet friendly. ❤
The contrast of the brick with the metal rust and pop of color of the gate is a prime example of how unique this locale is!
And we seriously could not do a blog on West Bottoms without featuring the inner-city junkie herself — our former photographer, Dawn!
During Dawn’s family photoshoot, her son Aidan proved that there’s always a new and exciting photo opportunity when he ran over to this random pile of tires!
So, there you have it! West Bottoms is a diverse location fit for pretty much anything! A solitary shoot to showcase some self accomplishments, celebrating an engagement, or exploring with family.
Book with us today and let’s go on an adventure downtown together!
