You would have never guessed it, but the day of Shawn and Magee’s KC engagement session was SO cold! All the more excuses to get close and cuddle right? I couldn’t wait to see Magee! Magee is from my home town of Hugoton KS and the last time I saw her, she was just a kid (yup I feel old 😉 ). Magee has grown into such a beautiful woman and it was SO much fun to see her again and to meet her awesome finance Shawn! We went out to Shawn’s parents pumpkin patch for their engagement session, and even though it was super windy and cold, it was amazing! These two were total rock stars and totally nailed their engagement session and made my job super easy! They are so adorable together and we had a blast together! Shawn and Magee, thank you SO much for embracing the cold and letting your love shine through! It was a joy to photograph the two of you and I can’t wait for your upcoming KC wedding at Weston Red Barn Farm! It’s going to be amazing! You two are awesome! ENJOY!!!
“I went to college at K-state and actually met Shawn’s sister, Angela who turned out to be one of my good friends, and she mentioned that her brother and I would be a great pair.. She went home and told her mom about me and they both set it up to have us meet when we moved out of the dorms. Shawn and I met but nothing came out of it due it being a busy day. Country Stampede was a month later, and Shawn asked his sister if I would be there. I was living in Manhattan for the summer and worked at a marketing booth for the job I had at the time. We met officially that first night and hit it off instantly.”
Magee- “I noticed Shawn’s smile and bright blue eyes at first. Within our first conversation, I noticed how much of a gentleman he was.”
Shawn- “Magee’s smile was striking and I could not stop thinking about it. I knew she was a sweetheart from the moment we met.”
“Shawn knows how suspicious I can get, so he pulled a fast on me…3 days after Valentines Day. I worked late on a Friday and didn’t get home until about 10pm. All of the house lights were off, but there as a note on the door that said “look down”, then notes led up to our 2nd door that had rose petals on the ground leading up to the entry. Once I got inside, Shawn was by the kitchen table with a camera stand to set the timer to capture the moment. He then got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was so surprised I didn’t believe him even when he opened up the ring I fell in love with but left without at Shane Co. I was in shock, he said I was squeezing his face! It was the best possible way for him to propose since I was truly surprised with no idea whatsoever.”
Magee- “Shawn is the most thoughtful person I’ve ever met. He is always thinking of others and what/how he can brighten up their day. He is the best at remembering the little things, where I would have to write a sticky note to make sure I didn’t forget.”
Shawn- “I admire how sweet and caring Magee is. She always goes above and beyond for everyone including myself, and really does put a smile on everyones faces.”
Magee- Shawn has some mad dance moves and can cook really well.
Shawn- Magee has a sense of humor that keeps me laughing about how funny she really isn’t. There’s no quit in her. HA.
Magee- The lawn. He loves to mow and make the house look nice. He loves his sisters a lot too, which is something I noticed really quick in our relationship.
Shawn- Magee loves her family. No matter how far away she is from them, she is always there. Especially her nieces and nephew. they even stole my heart too. even though, they like me more now! <– this is SO true now!! (magee)
Magee- Shawn is the best when I’m not feeling well. He makes sure I don’t have to lift a finger by cooking/cleaning when I’m not feeling well.
Shawn- Magee is always making me look at the positive side. Whether I’m sick, frustrated or having an off day, she is always so positive and gets me back to smiling. I really can’t help but smile anytime I see her beautiful smile.
Shawn and I were driving down our highway on our way home. We live on a super busy highway that leads into Lawrence. We saw this guy walking on the side of the road with a backpack looking for a ride. Shawn started to pull over and I started to freak out, knowing that this could end really bad… We didn’t know him at the time, but Shawn was determined to help him out. Shawn remaining calm, asked the guy where he was headed. He ended up getting into the truck, and Shawn kept making small talk with the guy… coming to find out that he actually knew him from grade school and hasn’t seen this guy since a traumatic car wreck he was in a couple years ago. We gave him a ride to his destination, and I could tell that whole ride made Shawn’s day and his old friends day. I admired Shawn’s willingness to help others out, no matter who they were or where they were going.
Magee- Shawn is so witty, and quick with the best comebacks. His dancing can always make me giggle too! He has the moves.
Shawn- Magee has these dance moves that she does when she either gets bored standing somewhere or when she gets really excited. She also cracks me up whenever she refers to herself as “momma” in a sentence…which is all the time.
Magee- Shawn has a heart of gold, his kindness never goes unseen, he’s the hardest worker I know & works hard for everything he has, and never stops even when he has it all. He has the best ideas, and always brings them to light. He’s the strongest human being I’ve ever encountered in my life–mentally, emotionally and physically. He’s truly the best part of me.
Shawn- Magee is the most beautiful woman I’ve ever met. inside and out. She is perfect in every way possible. She is a wild one–always keeping me on my toes, but also the first one in the office and the last one to leave, she’s independent and always gives everything her all in all she does. She knows what the important things in life are. She’s the most caring, loving and nuturing person. She is everything I’ve always prayed for in a wife. I know she’s going to be the greatest mom one day.
Congratulations Shawn & Magee! I can’t wait for your wedding in February!
