A Surprise Proposal at Loose Park!

Have we mentioned we love surprise proposals yet? Oh, we have? Well, one thing is for sure, they will never, ever, ever get old! We LOVE everything about them. The secret emails, the code words, the excitement and shock when someone gets on a knee … like this Sunday at Loose Park!

Matthew reached out to us December 1, letting us know he had just moved to Kansas City a few months ago with his girlfriend, Angie, who is attending KU. He ordered had already ordered the engagement ring, and was wanting to set up a surprise proposal.

The ring finally made it in on December 19, so we were ready to set the surprise date! Matthew had originally envisioned Penn Valley Park for the proposal, but the day of we ultimately decided on Loose Park!

Once Matthew had the ring, the plan was set in motion. We even exchanged photos so we knew what each other looked like (we don’t get to see each other until surprise proposal happens usually)!

These two lovebirds first met when Matthew watched her dog over Thanksgiving three years ago. When she came back from her trip, to a well pampered pup I am sure, they continued talking!

Matthew fessed up that he’s a wild child (his words!) and said “I love how Angie accepts me for who I am and what I do. Her love is my rock and keeps me grounded!”

They can be goofy together, too, clearly!

We here at Kansas City Photography wish you ALL the best in the world! Props to planning a surprise proposal for Angie! Don’t forget, we do weddings, too! 😉

A Surprise Rooftop Proposal In Kansas City!

We just LOVE surprise proposals. They are so romantic, and seeing the look of genuine shock and excitement as a significant other gets down on a knee … priceless!

Daniel reached out to us about two weeks ago. He had planned on doing a surprise proposal to (then) girlfriend (now fiancée), Julia. They’ve been together since August 2018 after they met on Coffee Meets Bagel.

Julia told us she’d been going through her calendar guessing which day Daniel would propose, but she had not guessed it would be Sunday!

Daniel met us at Rooftop Park (also sometimes called Green Roof Park), which is in downtown Kansas City. It’s a park that’s, you guessed it, on a rooftop!

Daniel said he knew he wouldn’t have much left to hide once he got Julia up there with him, so he dropped down to a knee almost immediately! No worries, though, our photographer, Dawn, had her trigger finger on point!

Julia said she thought he was going to propose the last five times they went out, so by our session Sunday she convinced herself it wasn’t happening! Ohhh, but it did! And she was more than happy to say “YES!”

Right after the surprise proposal, we launched right into a miniature engagement session.  These two lovebirds are so incredibly sweet, and we are honored to have been there to capture this  moment!

Hope to see you at the wedding! 😉

Surprise Proposal at Loose Park!

We at Kansas City Photography LOVE surprise proposals because get beautiful candid shots of the exact moment a couple starts their journey from “you and me” to “we”.

Kyle contacted us about a week before he was planning to pop the big question, with time and location already figured out! Tatiana got to bust out her ancient ninja skills and enter stealth mode as Kyle and Emily entered the scene.

Although, Kyle ended up kneeling a bit far away since Emily told him she didn’t want to get in the way of Tatiana’s shot. Much to her surprise, she was the main subject!

And as usual, as Tatiana grew closer and closer snapping away there’s that awkward conversation of “Congratulations! I’m not creepy, I promise. I’m supposing to be here doing this!”

Emily seriously had ZERO idea this was happening, and Kyle’s planning skills are on POINT- that’ll come in handy for the wedding!

“I had one of my good friends ask us to go to brunch on Sunday morning. I had mentioned that morning that I wanted to go on a walk and run some errands later that day. While leaving brunch, I had our realtor text us about a “fake” showing she wanted us to meet her at. This was perfect as it left an awkward amount of time prior to the showing from the time we left brunch. I said, “Let’s go for a walk at loose park to kill some time before the showing.” While walking around the rose garden at loose park, I got down on one knee and asked her to marry me! Everything worked out perfectly and she was totally surprised.”

That explains why Emily was so confused asking, “wait… so there’s no house showing today?”

No, girl, but you get a ring instead!

And what a ring it is!

Seriously, kudos to Kyle! He got everyone in on it, including her mom who took her to get her nails done the day before. He thought of everything!

Kyle and Emily met in Junior High and were friends throughout high school. They attended Kansas State together when they became a couple. Five years later, they are now engaged!

Emily was so shocked she almost felt betrayed by how many people knew!

“You all are a bunch of liars!” She proclaimed through the smile that just couldn’t fade away.

Kyle even arranged for their family and closest friends to meet them after the shoot to celebrate. He was pretty certain the answer would be yes!

Thank you so much to Kyle and later to Emily for letting us be a part of your incredibly special memory! Your smiles are contagious and we can’t congratulate you enough!

We would love to talk wedding photos with you soon. 😉
