recs for engagement shot locations

Howdy ladies! I am originally from Texas and have only lived in KC for a little over two years. I know the DFW area like the back of my hand and knew ALL the places for e-pics, but I am at a total loss for ideas right now. FI and I don't have a "regular" place we go a lot, we don't go out to eat or have a favorite bar. We both kind of like the idea of going to Worlds of Fun, but I've never been there - plus, I'm not sure he wants to add photogs admission to our cost. Where did you ladies go or where are you having yours done? We're scheduled for a 3:30pm, March 12, appointment. Just in time for Spring break. :) TIA

    Loose Park is great in the spring because of their rose garden.  The fountain on the Plaza is well known for wedding pics. Worlds of Fun has some lovely places in it.  Check out Price Chopper for lower admission prices.

    The West Bottoms can be a cool place to go.

    Our photographer has suggested we go to Loose Park's rose garden as well as Unity Village.  We want to go to the Plaza as well as we had our 1st date on the Plaza.

    I did Loose Park in the fall.  Beautiful park and we found plenty of shots with the brick work, flower garden, many trees, bridges and lake, etc.  They say it is very pretty in spring too.  I know that the Unity Village cost $40 if you prebook with them to take pictures on their grounds.  I heard of others getting kicked off the property since they didn't pay to get theirs done there.  Something to consider with Unity Village.  I would also consider what type of background you would like-- outdoors, railroad tracks, downtown and brick buildings, etc.

    We had ours at Loose Park in late fall and loved it. It's popular in the spring, too.

    I think loose park is overdone and I feel like everyone takes e-pics and family pics there (sorry girls).  We did ours at P&L and our photographer said she had never done a full engagment shoot there before so it was really cool!  I also had a friend that did hers in crossroads and her photos looked awesome and also unique.

    Here's a link to the photographers blog about our epics in the p&l:

    I'm going to agree with Loose park being a great place, just because there are so many different places. I also love the bottoms, because there is some cool urban areas that give the photos a different view. I'd recommend looking at your photographers pics, and picking the ones you like, and see where those are.

    Thanks so much for all the KC places! Liberty Memorial just reminds me of 'rockfest' - FI and I went last year, so that's an idea.

    Loose Park looked pretty, too! Idk about all the gardens and greenery... P&L looks like a fun place! I love wherever the "cowboy/cowgirl/rodeo" is in the background on the bldg.

    I didn't know about WOF being closed 'til April 15 - but it's still something to consider. We can always change our date :) Thanks again, ladies. Keep 'em comin.
