This picture I hope gives you a sense of the beauty we were able to enjoy during Brett and Sierra’s engagement shoot. This area of beautiful Manhattan, Kansas is the Konza Prairie and is also the location where Brett proposed to Sierra. They have a great story about this, as in some of the coming pictures you will see to get to the point where the proposal happened some hiking is involved! Brett and Sierra were a lot of fun and were willing to do what I asked of them even when that meant getting covered in little green pods from the variety of prairie plants. Without further hesitation here is a series of photos from our time together.

I love this tree! I’m not sure what it is about the tree, it’s not large, it doesn’t have anything really special about it; but it stands alone there, and it’s unique. Every time I come out to the Konza I think about how I want to photograph someone by it, and I finally got my chance!

On the left you can see the hill you have to climb to get to the highest point in the prairie (which isn’t terribly high but it’s still quite a hike!) and on the right you can see the spot where Brett proposed!

On the left here, I told them to give me the ‘what now!’ pose…Epic! On the right you get to see their true personality.

From the prairie we went off to a railroad bridge where unfortunately the light was fading quick, we did manage to grab a few shots before we lost all light.

When I met with Brett and Sierra, I asked them what they loved to do for fun; what they enjoyed and often did together. Their answer was that they loved to watch movies, so we decided to set up a movie night to finish things up!

I hope you enjoyed the photos, and congratulations Brett and Sierra! May God bless your marriage and your lives!
