Photo recipe: go modern for the engagement ring

Last Tuesday, Isaac and I drove to Kansas City to photograph Sarah and Andrew's engagement session. We started at a gorgeous park by the Plaza and then headed to Populous, where they work, so they could both change.

Just as a quick side note, she has the most darling hobbit home. No, really! The door was totally inspired by Lord of the Rings and I have pictures to prove it (coming soon). 


Setting up the shot

When you walk in the main doors at Populous, there's this gorgeous shiplap-like wall that feels ultra modern and completely chic. It was a great spot for me to photograph the ring because...

  1. There was an abundance of natural light coming in from the large glass doors and windows.
  2. The wall fit with the overall style of the engagement session. She wore a feminine color-blocked Kate Spade dress.
