We thought we first met Bob online when he sent us an enthusiastic email about wanting to propose to the most beautiful girl in the world. Actually, he said it better:
Morning John and Cate,
The photo bus is such an awesome idea! I ran into you guys on one of the first “First Fridays” you had the bus. I jumped in the back seat with my girlfriend and we snapped a few pictures. They’re still hanging on our fridge today.
Long story short; I’m ready to ask that same girlfriend to marry me. I got the ring yesterday and have have thought of about a million ways to ask. I thought about hanging on to it until the weather gets nicer, but there is no way I’m going to be able to wait that long. I’m way too excited.
So we have this tradition where we try to go to a different coffee house every Sunday morning. One of my favorites is Quay, but we haven’t been able to go there together. I was thinking about taking her there for a coffee one weekend morning and proposing outside. There is a bench on the NW corner of Delaware and 5th. I thought it would be nice to do it there.
I think she would like the have a picture or two of when I ask. I looked up photographers in the area and it said you guys are down the street. Would it be possible for you guys to candidly snap a few shots?
We usually go on Sundays around 9-9:30. I was thinking about maybe going all out and doing it this Monday because we both have the day off, but that might be moving a little too fast! We’re out of town the 22nd-23rd. Maybe March 2nd?
Are you available? I totally understand if you all are booked! Not much heads up on my end.
Looking forward to hearing back from you.
Here we are in the bus!
-Bob (and he left his phone number but you don’t need that).
UM. YES. We totally wanted to photograph their proposal. And we did, only after 2 failed attempts because Lacey was sick on the original day and then we had the ginormous snowmagadden and then the ring was burning a hole in Bob’s pocket but we got it!
Then Lacey asked if we could photograph their wedding. Again, UM. YES. So we did, and you can see the photos below.
It was a perfect day for a wedding at The Foundation in the Kansas City West Bottoms. The Photo Bus (our photo booth in a VW bus!) was perfect at this location and the guests had so much fun (see for yourself in the photos here!)
