Usually my first contact with a couple is from the lady, but it was Myles who first reached out to me, which was amazing! When we were finalizing the details of their engagement session they mentioned a few locations that meant a lot to them. The first was the KC Loves mural above a parking garage in the heart downtown. This was actually the first location Myles had ever been to when he first came to this city. He was there for a music video with his incredible band SAUL. The second location was the Midland Theater. Jamie and Myles both have a love for music and have seen a lot of concerts there. The last location was my choice simply because I wanted to photograph these cuties with a beautiful sunset and get some epic night photos. hehe
Myles had just moved to Kansas City from Ohio and was looking to meet people online through Bumble. I had just downloaded the app and decided to give it a try. I matched with Myles the very next day. From there we talked and decided to meet and have our first date at Grinders Pizza in KC!
Myles- For the proposal, we flew to Nashville Tennessee for our two year anniversary. On the final day, we went hiking, afterwards I made an excuse for us to have to change in the car for “dinner” (long story haha) we ended up actually having dinner, because our friends who came down from Ohio, were still getting the Airbnb ready for the big question. After dinner we drove to the Airbnb, where our friends were on the roof overlooking downtown Nashville, playing our song. We walked up stairs, passing photos of us on the way, and found our friends and family (on a live zoom call) waiting for us. It was then that I dropped to one knee and asked her to marry me. And thankfully she said yes!
Jamie – I love the way his face lights up when he talks about something he’s passionate about, typically it’s something music related, his dimples are the best! I also love his kind and understanding nature, if I’m having a hard time with something he is so supportive and usually can get me to laugh. What I may love about him most of all is the love he has for my daughter. He never fails to make her laugh and even asked her permission prior to proposing. Myles – I love how supportive and loving Jamie is, she has always had my back in everything I’ve done. She picks me up when things have been rough and keeps me on track when I need it. I also love how we don’t need to be doing anything to enjoy each other’s company. To me that shows how perfect we are for each other.
By far our favorite thing to do together is go to concerts. We also love doing things outdoors such as hiking, biking and white water rafting when we get the opportunity to make a trip out to Colorado.
Our relationship and lives revolve largely around music. As mentioned in the previous question we love going to shows together… what is unique though is that Myles is a drummer in a touring band: Saul. He has also been in other touring bands in the past as well. Navigating our relationship while he has music and touring obligations is a challenge, but we’ve overcome those challenges over the years!
